We have visited The Island several times, and always loved it. The staff are exceptional and really make it feel like 'coming home'. The food was even better this year, and the infinity pool is an absolute winner. The sea is only across the road and in October is still warm enough for a swim. For a total relax in...

Our son and his girlfriend visited in July 15 and said a great place for a holiday. We booked last minute and suffered loosing a day with the Greek air traffic strike, but when we arrived knowing the weather forecast looked good if the Island Htl was as we had been told we were going to enjoy.. Excellent Buffet style...

4 star hotel on a level of a 5 star hotel. Adults only hotel for couples or single, extraordinary design and a perfect program for the target group. The restaurant has places small but even big groups. Different swimming areas and only 1 minute away from the beach. If you want to discover the Greek lifestyle you will find only...

It was our first visit to Crete and the friendliness of staff at this hotel was typical of our entire stay. Being adults only meant that our comfort was guaranteed. The food was delicious, with a huge variety available. The grounds and pools were well maintained, and our room was kept spotless.

The island is a great hotel, you can see the many returning guests being warmly greeted by the staff. Check in was faultless and the room although small was functional. I quite liked the bathroom layout but found a lack of storage a bit of an issue. Nice balcony with a side view to the ocean and the coffee shop...

This hotel was what we were looking for this summer on vacation, one that did not allow children. We wanted to be able to swim and sit by the pool without screaming kids. However, you must get out early to claim seats by the pool as they go very quickly. The beach was merely right across from the hotel, which...

We cannot stay away from this lovely place. It was busy for October and that was good. The place was spotless as always and the grounds absolutely immaculate. We had the most supreme Cool Sea-view Suite and could not have felt more spoilt :) Such peace and quiet and privacy was much appreciated. We love the sea and to be...

Not much to say other than we could not fault the whole package apart from Thomson who decided to cancel our Sunday flight and flew us out 26 hours after we should have gone. When you are only there for a week it is not good to lose a day. Apart from that the hotel, location, staff and food were...
