What a wonderful hotel. Although it caters for up to 1000 guests, it is laid out in such a way that it doesn't feel crowded, with 3 pools, several sections to the dining area, several different bar areas and lots of seating areas outside. The pools have ample loungers etc. especially the very comfortable double mattress ones with canopies. Security... More

What to say that hasn't already been said? The Island excels in all areas - beautiful spot right by the sea, immaculate grounds, great staff and a lovely relaxing atmosphere. The buffet meals served in The Kitchen (breakfast and dinner) were the best we have ever had when staying half board. Huge range of options, including lots of fresh fruit... More

We were looking for a relaxing, lazy week, and found it here at The Island. Not a great start, left on a bus at the airport for over an hour (Thomson's fault) two buses arrived at the hotel together, so a crowd to check-in...which was done very quickly and efficiently. Paid extra for a sea view room with balcony, and... More

We really enjoyed our stay at the Island Hotel. The food was great, staff were very pleasant and the facilities were spot on. There were issues, but these were only minor and didn't spoil the experience. I would definitely recommend it for couples looking to have a quiet get-away.

We chilled in the "Veranda"... More
