I have just returned from 2 weeks at the Island Hotel, and it was amazing. The hotel is well presented, very spacious, the pools are fantastic and the food was really of a high quality, however, the best feature about the hotel is undoubtedly the staff. Julia, who welcomes you into the restaurant, is simply amazing, and has a quip... More

The resident band "naked stereo" were fantastic, great music with a backing track made from Paul's guitar looped over the top...if you end up on a night out with them expect to watch the sunrise on the beach. Ha. Cocktails from the the... More

Just got back from a great 11 night break here. Hotel is lovely and clean, and the staff are really friendly and helpful, I think we had a bit of a bargain to be honest! Can't understand some of the petty comments about some of the issues people said they've had...buffet food is never piping hot so if you want... More

The room was lovely and spacious and such a pleasure to come back to every day. The views from the balcony were beautiful. Would definitely recommend room... More

We have just returned from an 11 day break at this hotel. We loved it. A quick skip from the airport in a taxi you arrive before you know it. Now, I was a little unnerved at the rather shabby street that leads to the hotel but we pull up to a lovely entrance, friendly welcoming staff great us and... More
