The Island Hotel  

Part of our Thomson Platinum range, The Island Hotel scores a double coup – a beachside setting and design-led interiors.

This beachfront hotel has a pared-back exterior of whitewashed walls and mosaic-stone pillars. But the style’s ramped right up inside. Think contemporary furniture, polished wood floors and spot-lit ceilings.

The dining scene is made up of a buffet restaurant, an Italian place, a taverna and a laid-back eatery by the pool. You’ve got a good tally of activities in the day, and there’s easy-going entertainment come sundown.

Peace and Tranquility

We went for a two week break away from the stress of city life and we were not disappointed. The relaxing atmosphere in a child fee environment was bliss. Waitress service from the sun loungers or a snack at one of the two pool side bars was fab. Breakfast had lots of choice and dinner had a specialist cuisine each night, as well as freshly cooked pizza, fresh salads, grilled meats etc. The staff at the restaurant were amazing, especially Christa and Marina! They work so hard and are extremely attentive. The evenings had entertainment each night with the resident duo, this compliments the relaxing atmosphere but by the second week it can be a little monotonous. The saxophonist was excellent! The spa facilities were on the whole of a good standard, however, a little small. It was great that the spa appointments were for personalised use and you could make the most of having the facilities to yourself. The appointments are limited to 60 minutes though. The deep tissue massage is not for the faint hearted but you can feel the benefit after a couple of days. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wishes to unwind and indulge!More

WOW where do I start This hotel is absolutely perfect in all aspects. I arrived with my girlfriend for a weeks break and found the hotel the perfect place to relax. Upon arrival we were upgraded to a shared pool split level room. The hotel has 4 pools all of which has plenty of spare sun beds. Spent the majority of time relaxing round the relaxation pool which was so peaceful. The food at the hotel was brilliant especially in the taverna which you are able to eat in once a week. The local area is quiet but there are plenty of tavernas and local bars providing plenty of nightlife for those searching for this. The beach opposite the hotel also has free sun beds and is equally as relaxing. I have stayed on many Greek islands but this is easily without doubt the best hotel I have ever stayed in by a long way. I am not one to return to holiday destinations but will be coming back here on a regular basis. Overall this is the perfect location for those looking for relaxation in the sun. Paradise is not an understatement Please note - men must wear long trousers for dinning. Jeans are accepted. More

Best holiday for relaxation

We went last year at the start of September and arrived late at night. The receptionist was so welcoming and gave us information to take away. Then we were led to our room which overlooked the relaxation pool which was lovely. Our room was so fresh and comfortable and air conditioning really helped cool us down. A bottle of water was left in the fridge every day by the housekeeping team, who were so thorough and very friendly. All of the staff were attentive and welcoming and made us feel like nothing was too much trouble. Most of our time was spent lounging by the relaxation pool, or down by the private beach. We didn't organise any trips but preferred to potter around the area, taking our time to explore the little shops and cafe/restaurants. Our favourite restaurant was George's Taverna- lovely food, staff and atmosphere! We couldn't keep away. We also found a sports bar showing the Moto GP, which made our day! We loved the holiday so much that we are coming again at the end of this month - so excited! Recommend to everyone Mary & AndrewMore

Mary B,

The nice and fine Island Hotel

I spent a week at the Island Hotel in late july 2016. This is a very clean hotel with a high standard. The staff is very friendly and service minded. Four different pools. Good restaurants. A super market. And close to the small beach. The beach is not a part of the hotel. So you might have to pay for a sunbed. When I was at the beach I got very dirty from some sort of oil. Put me off the beach I'm afraid. But the hotel with it's features is really great. Guests were mostly german, dutch and english. Menues very international. Prices moderat. Outside the hotel there are around 10-15 restaurants and bars. Georges is a family owned very cosy place I recommend. Otherwise a very small and quiet resort.More

Perfect Hotel

This was are second visit to the Island Hotel and again we had a wonderful 10 night stay.We were upgraded on arrival which was a nice bonus. All the staff are wonderful especially Julia on the restaurant made us smile every day. We loved the bows in her hair and the matching lipstick.The new infinity pool was very relaxing. The buffet food in the restaurant was OK not a dinning experience!! But lots of tavernas in The village so you had the best of both worlds.Would always recommend the Island for peace and relaxation.Sue & MikeMore
