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.

Went with my husband to celebrate his birthday and our 48th wedding anniversary. We had a lovely room with a large veranda and side sea view room. It is the best anniversary we have had. A bottle of wine and fruit delivered to our room and a lovely meal in the hotel Taverna in the evening. Sitting on our balcony listening to the waves and sipping wine - perfect. Loved the dining area - watching people swimming as we were having our breakfast or dinner. We also liked the fact we could walk out of the front gate straight onto the beach for swimming and snorkelling.More

Couples only hotel, brilliant

We stayed at The Island june 2014, This was our first time at a Thomson couples hotel, What a fantastic experience, Just what we were looking for , seafront location and peace and quiet, We had a seaview room with a really comfortable bed , free wifi, safe , fridge, etc, The staff at this hotel were brilliant, So friendly and helpful, The restaurant was really good , with a choice of indoor or outdoor dining, the choice for breakfast and evening dinner was exceptional, WE got talking to the manager of the hotel who really is a charming lady who really cares about how you are enjoying your holiday and the hotel in general, This hotel has really attractive gardens, Yes aircraft fly over the hotel, the noise is not excessive or intruding, We had an hire car for 10 days while we were there, i think it would be a good idea to mark parking bays with white lines , some of the parking was diabolical , cars taking up 2 spaces on many occasions, pehaps this is something to look at in the future, the surrounding area is nice and quiet, some people have said there are derelict buildings around, if they opened their eyes, they would realise these buildings are being built and none are near to the hotel, there are plenty of tavernas within 5 minutes walking distance of the hotel if you are looking for peace and quiet, this could well be the place for you, the hotel has a very attractive pool, its a delight, no shouting kids, sheer blissMore

Fantastic holiday

We booked this holiday for our honeymoon and we weren't disappointed. The hotel is kept scrupulously clean along with daily room service. The staff were professional, friendly and courteous. There was no fight for sunbed's and there was a choice of single loungers or double beds with or without canopies, the hotel also provides a beach/pool towel each. You could eat as much as you wanted at breakfast and evening meal; the food was varied and there was always something that we fancied. You could book trips through Thompson's but we would recommend using the local bus service, which was excellent. The drinks are a little pricey in the hotel but there are plenty of bars/restaurants just outside the hotel and if you prefer to stay within the hotel grounds there is nightly entertainment. We would definitely go back and have recommended the hotel to friends and family.More


Great holiday for two

Recently back from the Crete and the Island Hotel. We can highly recommend the hotel. The plus points are the friendly/helpful staff, good food ( traditional Greek and themed ). We particularly liked the walks to/from the main area as it has been designed to meander with planters/palms/small gardens around the corners. Well laid out. The beach was a disappointment as it could only hold a limited number of loungers. Our room was a little dark with little natural light. There were a couple of things to improve on. - no bedside reading lights available - broadband was very slow - even in the wired foyer laptops. Very slow wifi in rooms. One additional plus - don't write off the onsite shop - bottle of gin was 4 euros cheaper than the local supermarket !!More

Good base with boutique feel

Good base for travelling around Crete, rooms nicely finished and provide basics, although only one iron in the whole of the hotel to hire. Drinks exceptionally expensive, luckily lots of great tavernas at the back of the hotel, which will charge you half the cost for the drinks with a good atmosphere. Tiny village setting without exchange facility, so make sure you get all currency before you settle into the hotel. Service in hotel good, and staff very accommodating.More
