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 traditional 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.

Wonderful stay Total Luxury.

We stayed in September 2015, upgraded to a sea view,had a great stay, we have been staying in a 5 star hotel in Marmaris Turkey for 10 years,but decided to try The island after seeing the great reviews . And We were not disappointed ,the Island is far better ,great food great (happy staff). We were even waved good bye when we left by the reception staff. We enjoyed so much we are going back again in May 2016. Cant wait . All I can say is if you get the chance go and see it for yourself you will not be disappointed.More

Excellent Hotel

A well run hotel, staff all friendly and helpful rendering a brilliant service to clients. The food was very good and enjoyable, for me a few more greek dishes would be great. Adults only a bonus, site designed to be interesting, pools great and almost private beach to boot. We had a great time!More

Wonderful hotel and staff

Stayed at the Island Hotel beginning of September 2015 for 2 weeks , booked after reading so many positive reviews and seeing all the beautiful photos. We were not disappointed it was just amazing and such a great chill out holiday. I can only echo all the great comments about how clean and beautifully furnished the hotel is, staff are so helpful and friendly and the food really is gorgeous we had no problem with food being cold at all. Didn't eat at the a la crate restaurant but we have booked to go back in June for another 2 weeks so will probably try that then. The room was a little smaller than we are used to but it wasn't any problem it had everything we needed. We did stay in a mountain facing room which was lovely but have booked a sea view room for our return. The beach across the road is lovely and the sunbeds are free to hotel guests, the sea was gorgeous in September. The pool bar restaurant serves great food at lunchtime or there are some really lovely places to eat just outside the hotel. There's not much else to say because I am only repeating what others have already said but we are looking forward to going this time even more than last as we know what it's actually like there now and can not wait to go back.More


Total luxury

I stayed at this hotel for a week with my mother and loved it so much I'm going back this summer with my friend. It is the most luxurious hotel I've ever stayed in, everything about this hotel was 5*. It is a quiet island but enough for what you need for a weeks stay, there's a different variety of food every day to a high standard, the rooms are cleaned every day and the staff are amazing, anything you need or any questions you have there is always someone around to help you in any way you need. There is loads of places you can visit either by bus or taxi, we went to hersonissos one night which is about €15 each way in a taxi, which is a great night out. But if your wanting a quieter holiday there are plenty of local bars at the front of the hotel which are extremely good value for money. I can't wait to come back to this hotel. More


Lovely peaceful hotel

Had a lovely stay here in 2015 went with a friend as we wanted a child free location to chill! Lovely little beach, plenty of sun beds at the pools you can't reserve them with towels the waiters move them if you do. Bar service around the pool is fab! Lovely cocktails, staff are helpful. Room was clean hairdryer broke and was replaced immediately. Weather was fab! Very quiet area a few shops and bars. We went on two trips spinalonga and on a food and village tour! Was fab we're only in our 20s but found the trips fun and a good way to chill away from the hotel and explore the island. If you want a night out malia is not that far we didn't bother but other guests did. Good food plentiful mine wasn't cold my friend is mega fussy and always found something to eat . Each night is country themed. Restaurant is lovely sit outside on the terrace we did for every meal taking in the view all in all fab place just a little isolated if you want to explore More
