The Island Hotel

Gouves, Crete

from £

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.

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.

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.

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.

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, wine tasting or cocktail-making*.

The hotel’s resident entertainment duo specialise in live music and acoustic performances. They perform several nights a week.

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, tai chi and stretch.
