Accommodation Overview

  • Beachfront location
  • 4 restaurants

Location Information


• On the beach

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

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.

Please Note

While you're away, you can speak to us anytime - we're available 24/7 via the TUI App, phone, SMS and email. The easy-to-use TUI App is also packed with info and tips. It sends you important updates, like your airport transfer times, too.

Pools

Three pools are framed by oversized loungers, cushioned daybeds and hammocks-for-2. They're all set in a smart decked terrace with horizon views. Waiters from the poolside restaurant will bring drinks right to your sunbed.

Pool Scene

A fourth outdoor pool has hydro-massage spouts. And speaking of, you’ll find another pool indoors that features even more water curtains and jets.

Food & Drink

The main restaurant offers international buffet dishes. The breakfast spread is particularly good – you can even opt for a full English. By the pool, there are two open-air eateries for all-day dining.

You can book in for a 5-course blow-out at the international taverna. It’s a romantic setting with stone walls and an open roof. Head here to dine at sunset.

Entertainment

Drinks are served after dark in the hotel's laidback lounge bar.

Sports & Activities

When it comes to things to do, you’ve got tennis, basketball and volleyball all on the list. For something a bit different, try your hand at cookery classes or wine tasting.

Health & Beauty

The spa* offers a choice of treatments and massages, as well as a sauna and whirlpool. There’s a small gym, too, equipped with machines, treadmills and weights.

There’s a timetable of wellbeing classes like yoga, pilates, and stretch.

Facility Overview

The pool scene at this place was created with relaxation in mind. There are 4 outdoor pools framed by hammocks and double daybeds, one of which is a hydro-massage pool, while an indoor one features a pair of Hyrdrojet curtains. Food-wise, there's a choice of restaurants including a romantic à la carte taverna. Come sundown, chilled-out live music is played in the hotel’s cocktail bar.
