We recently returned from our 2 week honeymoon in The Island Hotel and all we have to say is - WOW!! As soon as you arrive off the coach, you know its going to be the perfect holday... The hotel is very modern and spotless!! The room was a nice size with a huge bed, The rooms were cleaned to a good standard everyday and a fresh bottle of water was placed in your room! We spent our time around the small quiet pool which was perfect. We managed to get a sunbed everyday no problem (Although people do still put there towels down on the beds and vanish for a good few hours). I was a little worried about the food, We had booked half board and read some bad comments on the food... We found it absolutly perfect, There was plenty of choice, A different theme everynight... We stayed for 2 weeks and you would expect the food to get boring and repetative but we found it beautiful every single day! We had planned to eat out some nights before the holiday but as the resturant was situated over looking the beach and watching the sunset go down every night and the quality of the food we found there was no need to eat out! Breakfast there was a fry up every morning, fruit, cereal, pancakes etc what more do people expect? And as I say in the evening there were themed nights, There was also a chef cooking on a wok some nights and kebabs some nights!! The choice was incredible!! For lunch we ate in the resturant in the hotel a couple of times but mainly ate out, There are plenty of resturants both on the beach front or out the front of the hotel, cheap and good food!! We hired a quadbike and a car through Mike Tours just outside the hotel, quad bike for a day - 20 euros!! Cracking experience and a car for 2 days 84 euros which we found alot cheaper than if you booked via Thomson. We went to Watercity and Spinalonga both really good trips, altho Spinalonga can turn into a bit of a history lesson.. If your looking for a lively holiday then this is not for you... If you are looking to get away, chill out, completly relax and enjoy the sun!! Then this is paradise!! We had the best honeymoon and would 110% go back!!
