Booking.com Guest Review GuidelinesTo keep the rating score and review content relevant for your upcoming trip, we archive reviews older than 24 months.
Only a customer who has booked through Booking.com and stayed at the property in question can write a review. This allows us to verify that our reviews come from real guests like you. Who better to tell others about the free breakfast, friendly staff, or their comfortable room than someone who’s stayed at the property?
We want you to share your story, with both the good and the not-so-good. All we ask is that you follow a few simple guidelines.
We believe review contributions and property responses will highlight a wide range of opinions and experiences, which is critical in helping guests make informed decisions about where to stay.
Contributions to Booking.com are a reflection of the dedication of our guests and properties, so we treat them with the utmost respect.
Whether negative or positive, we'll post every comment in full and as quickly as possible, provided the guidelines are met. We'll also provide transparency over the status of submitted content.
We'll use the same guidelines and standards for all user-generated content, and for the property responses to that content.
We'll allow the contributions to speak for themselves, and we won’t be the judge of reality. Booking.com’s role is to be a feedback distributor for both guests and properties.
Guidelines and Standards for Reviews
These guidelines and standards aim to keep the content on Booking.com relevant and family-friendly, without limiting expression or strong opinions. They're also applicable regardless of the comment's tone.
Contributions should be travel related. The most helpful contributions are detailed and help others make better decisions. Please don’t include personal, political, ethical, or religious commentary. Promotional content will be removed and issues concerning Booking.com’s services should be routed to our Customer Service or Accommodation Service teams.
Contributions should be appropriate for a global audience. Please avoid using profanity or attempts to approximate profanity with creative spelling, in any language. Comments and media that include hate speech, discriminatory remarks, threats, sexually explicit remarks, violence, or the promotion of illegal activity are not permitted.
All content should be genuine and unique to the guest. Reviews are most valuable when they are original and unbiased. Your contribution should be yours. Booking.com property partners should not post on behalf of guests or offer incentives in exchange for reviews. Attempts to bring down the rating of a competitor by submitting a negative review will not be tolerated.
Respect the privacy of others. Booking.com will make an effort to obscure email addresses, telephone numbers, website addresses, social media accounts, and other similar details.
The opinions expressed in contributions are those of Booking.com customers and properties, and not of Booking.com. Booking.com does not accept responsibility or liability for any reviews or responses. Booking.com is a distributor (without any obligation to verify) and not a publisher of these comments and responses.

눉Breakfast could have a bit more variety, screens could help keep the bees out. Make sure to verify everything about your hotel stay and transportation with the reception, even in writing, as there were many mix ups that caused us not to fully enjoy our stay there (and spend extra money on things supposedly pre-planned). A bit overpriced, in comparison to other hotels of its category, but overall nice.
눇Cozy and clean. Simple but nice breakfast. Amazing view, quite close to the beach and the Town (very convenient public transport too). Spa staff was obliging and professional, hotel reception staff was warm.

눇Good location, walking distance to the beach and IOS town but located up on the hill so at night its quite.. if you ask me its the best of both worlds. Has a beautiful view of the beach & lovely pool

눉Have stayed at Far Out Village and don't see much of a difference between the two besides the breakfast was included. If you are a small party be aware that the hotel is constantly filled with contiki groups etc.
눇Easy and swift transportation to the far out hotel and spa with pickup from the ferry port. Transportation down to the village also a bonus! Rooms were comfortable and clean.

눉The WiFi was spotty at best and our bathroom smelt of urine from the moment we checked into the room. Even after then cleaners had been through.
눇Location was excellent with an amazing view! The bartender at the pool bar is super friendly and is very welcoming. He shows you around and tells you where all the good restaurants are!

눉I expected more from a hotel and day spa. It’s built on the side of the mountain and my room was as far up as possible, and the only way up was to take the stairs... 88 of them, I counted! There was no porter to help with bags, so I had to lug my 20+kg suitcase up multiple flights of stairs in the scorching heat. The lady at the front desk was unfriendly and unapproachable and made me feel like I was wasting her time every time I asked a question. The hotel is located so far from the beach and beach club, which was a pain because that’s where my friends were staying. there is a bus transfer that takes you between the two, but no one told me I needed to book it, I was told 'it comes whenever you want', so I assumed it just went back and forth all day. Breakfast here was basic, in an un-air-conditioned room and there were bees flying around the whole time which made it hard to eat. All in all, nice place to stay, but I wouldn't stay here again, knowing that the beach club had just as good facilities at a much cheaper rate and was right in the heart of the fun down on the beach. Plus they had a golf buggy to take your bags to your rooms!
눇The room and view was lovely. My room had a balcony overlooking the beach and the bed was comfortable. The room was simple and basic, but had what I needed. There is a shuttle bus from the hotel down to the beach club, but you have to book it with reception when you want it. I wasn't told this and was left waiting for ages assuming one would turn up soon, so keep that in mind.

눇Good pool, hotel is set away from the beach but it didnt really matter because Far out offer free transfer to and from the beach. Basic room but nice surroundings.
