“At last - an excellent hotel near Netanya”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2011

The Island is very new and very good and is great if you don't fancy the hustle and bustkle of nearby Netanya or Tel Aviv. If you're looking for night life on your doorstep, look elsewhere, at least for the next few years, while they develop the South Beach area in which the hotel has a prime position, although it's a good 15-minute walk to the nearest pedestrian access to the beach so don't expect to be able to roll out of bed and onto the sands below. We found the complimentary rental car useful for trips to the bech (2 minutes by car) when we were too lazy to walk!

Operated by the same group as Okeanos in Herzliya this is a lovely all-suite (1- and 2-bed) hotel on the cliffs about a 30-minute walk from Netanya.

There are only 5 suites on each floor and all have large sea-facing balconies. The finishes are high quality and very trendy and there's a lovely 'pool area (and small kids' 'pool) facing the sea, surrounded by lots of wooden decking which fits the whole vibe. There's a great little shop beneath the hotel which is open 24 hours except on Jewish Holidays and a fab ice cream parlour, with another 3 or 4 units waiting to be let.

Food at the hotel is variable, but generally good without being great. The staff are unfailingly helpful or try to be, although they don't speak English as well as you might expect, given how widely English is spoken in Israel. So be prepared to use some Hebrew or French and it will take you a long way.

In addition to the rental car, you can use the hotel's free shuttle service (9am - 5pm weekdays and Sunday) to Netanya or Ramat Poleg; a taxi would cost just £4 but it's a nice touch by the hotel.

This isn't the full hotel experience as it's a suites hotel (or apart-hotel if you prefer) but we would definitely return, so long as they maintain both the building/services and quality. An unexpectedly good find at late notice and one I'd recommend.

Room Tip: Specify which floor - there are 29 of them!

This new hotel is part of the Okeanos group where we have stayed in the marina in Herzliya several times, and had a trouble free relaxing stay. Here in Netanya Island Suites is a different experience. Great location and facilities but bad management and staff leading to a very bad experience.

We booked through an agent and on arrival as is usual we were asked for a credit card to cover any extras during our stay. First attempt at processing our card we were told it is not valid, we said there must be a mistake please try again - again we were told our card not valid, we gave another card with the same result and then a third card. Having pointed out there is clearly something wrong with their system we were told there is not. We insisted on speaking with a manager and eventually were told we could go to our room and sort out the card later - no apology.

We were there due to a family bereavement (which the hotel was made aware of by our agent) so spent little time in hotel and returned in the evening very tired to discover the channels on tv were not as advertised there were no hotel services details in english and the bedroom floor not cleaned had sticky stuff on it. We told the night staff we would wish to speak to someone in the morning, but too tired and too late to have housekeeping

Next morning it only got worse - breakfast buffet I requested refil of a salad which I was told would come, I waited and after 5 minutes requested again, and again and again. This was a cold salad nothing that needed preparation, I asked another member of staff and was then told they would bring it to the table - after a further 10 minutes it still had not arrived and in the end (after a half hour wait) I left the dining room without having breakfast at all. That day the housekeeping did not improve either even after our complaint. The floors were not clean and the table likewise in the dining area was not properly cleaned.

The spa was not open and the business lounge does not open until 5pm

We were planning a weeks stay in June with the family and had hoped to return but in view of our experience clearly we would not wish to. When the reservations clerk heard of our experience she tried to resolve the issues and offer us a sweetner with a discount if we return, she also suggested we speak with her manager. We agreed to speak with the front desk manager who listened to our experience but offered no real apology. He said he if we return in June we could have a discount (which I would mention I now discovered is offered to all returning guests in any event) and we could have first night free. They also had a special offer to include free car rental.

On return to UK I spoke with my agent who gave me a price for our week in June but the hotel would not honour the rate originally offered. I contacted hotel regarding the offer they made us i.e. discount on room plus free car rental plus first night free. Their response was they would not confirm but I should reserve with an agent.
I AM DISGUSTED AT THE APPAULING MANAGEMENT AT THIS NEW HOTEL AND THEIR TOTAL DISREGARD FOR GUESTS - it appears they are only interested in business travellers and also in the sale of suites

Stayed at Island for 4 nights and was very impressed by standard and quality of hotel as with staff who were very friendly and helpfull. Great breakfast , a bit different from day to day and friendly staff.
Fantastic 2 room apartment with 2 bathrooms on fifth floor with all comforts, lacks nothing except for some art on the walls. Don´t know if I would like to stay high up as it is rather windy on the water front ( good view even on the lower floors)
Good gym with intructors and a good walk in to town, about 20 minutes to town square.
Comunications: Taxi, walk or rental car.
