This was my first proper couples holiday with my girlfriend and the lack of screaming children at the hotel was bliss. From the moment we got there we were welcomed by friendly reception staff and took our bags to the room. All of the staff were great especially the waiters at night who we were not afraid to tip.

I've never been motivated to write a hotel review before, but this one really deserves a huge recommendation. My wife and I stayed at The Island Hotel for 2 weeks in August 2014 and It just wasn't enough! Star ratings can't accurately reflect the sheer pleasure we found in staying here. We've stayed at many 5 star hotels that weren't... More

We stayed at the Island Hotel in May 2014. Overall the hotel met all expectations and we throughly enjoyed our stay. Food The food was generally good. Breakfast was our favourite with a wide array of hot and cold foods available. Like breakfast dinner was buffet style with a chef cooking up a fresh dish every night. Room The room... More

Excellent hotel for couples only - no children! There is a smaller quiet pool on the back. Food was great as usual for greek food. Service was spotless. Clean rooms with built-in safe box, balcony, air con and all common accessories. Organised trips are a nice bonus. The hotel is located just across a quiet road from the beach, around... More

My wife and I went to this hotel together to recharge our batteries (young kids at home) (summer of 2011) and we stayed here for 7 nights. This is truly a couples hotel, very quiet, very clean. The rooms were spacious and well maintained. The garden was very nice and groomed. We had different food every night and the food... More

Luxury, that's for sure. Very nice rooms (we had sea view), friendly staff, enough seats at the pool, large buffet... This hotel is ideal for everybody that wants to enjoy sun, quietness and luxury. There's a spa where you can book massages, beauty treatments and so on. The buffet is big enough to choose a different type of food every... More

The food was excellent, we cancelled the night we had booked for the a la carte as the buffet offered a variety of different food which was fresh,... More

We stayed at The Island in September 2014 for a relaxing one week holiday in the sun and cannot recommend this hotel enough. Every member of staff without exception was friendly, professional and helpful. From the moment we arrived until the day we left, we were well informed about the hotel facilities and made to feel welcome. Unfortunately we experienced... More

We stayed for a week in Oct 2014- booked through Thomson; we both needed a relaxing quiet break to get away from it all. We had a really enjoyable break. The location was secluded and quiet and just what we were after. There are a few shops nearby, but not a huge range. Our room overlooked the beach which was... More
