The Island Hotel  

Part of our Thomson Couples 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, a traditional Greek 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.

A fabulous hotel with wonderful staff

Well, where do I begin?! Having booked last minute and secured a very reasonable price we were surprised by the quality and class of The Island hotel. Despite the craziness of Heraklion airport we were welcomed to the hotel by a bunch of lovely staff. This friendliness continued throughout our stay with a high standard of customer service everywhere you went from the maids wishing you a 'Good Morning' to the restaurant staff especially Julia and Gianni who were always pleased to see you. We also thought Adam and his loop pedal were brilliant (entertainment). We thought that we would hire a car and explore Crete but with the superb facilities, relaxing atmosphere and convenience stores situated near to the hotel there was no need to venture any further. Although the location was slightly secluded (there are buses that run and a train that ran frequently out of the town) this did not phase us in the slightest. We had an amazing holiday and have highly recommended the hotel since our stay and will certainly continue to. Hopefully we will return in the future for another relaxing week away!! Thank you for a fantastix holiday to all at The Island Hotel.More



My partner and I returned to the Island Hotel for the fourth time in late October. As on all previous visits we had an excellent week. Even at the end of Season the Staff were full of energy and Customer Care. Throughout the hotel and grounds all was spotlessly clean and tidy. The restaurant was very good and frequently held "themed evening meals". all to a high standard. Anyone considering a stay at the Island should not hesitate- you will not be disappointed. You will find it relaxing and very well Managed indeed.More

Stayed at this lovely hotel for a week with my husband and we really loved it . We have travelled a lot and stayed in many nice hotels and cruise ships and this is one of the best . We paid extra for a sea view after reading reviews and we were very pleased with our modern room with a super comfy bed . The pool area is fabulous and the staff all around the hotel cannot do enough for you . If you like peace and quiet but with still the choice of some nice entertainment and atmosphere you will love this place . We will definately return More

Just re booked 3rd visit!

Hi all returning to the island next year. This really is a hidden gem of an adults oasis. The team here are absolutely superb. If you are thinking of going please do so don't be put off by the comments of the views of the garden rooms trust me. This hotel is one of the best couples hotels there is. Quiet pool hear we come 😊More

Great hotel

this is a really nice hotel. The reps were really helpful, especially Hannah. The entertainment was ok but similar every night. Our room was a garden view but the garden looked more like a rubble yard, such a shame.... The pool area was nice but everyone was close together. Nice view of the sea and great food at the pool bar. To be honest we did not explore the local area too much but nice relaxing walks along the sea front. We went on 2 trips safari 4x4 and spinalonga both good spinalonga was spoilt by it popularity. I wouldn't go back though nice but not Greek enough for me!More
