Expert review of Hotel Marko Polo
This low-rise waterside hotel dates back to 1972 but was renovated in 2007 and upgraded to four-star. There are 94 rooms and suites, an outdoor pool, a small pebble beach and a wellness centre. The décor is a little dated but the peaceful atmosphere and stunning views of the old town make up for it.
It's just a 10-minute walk along the coast to Korcula’s medieval town walls, the ferry port and bus station.
The rooms and suites all have dark blue carpets, rusty orange curtains and cream bedspreads, plus air conditioning, mini-bar, safe and satellite-TV. The single and double rooms have either a garden view or sea view (well worth paying extra for) but no balcony. The spacious junior suites see the addition of a balcony, plus sofa-bed, making them good for families.
The main restaurant is slightly lacking in atmosphere but has a lovely sea-view terrace where guests can eat al fresco. The outdoor pool has a pool bar.
Expect a passable buffet breakfast with plenty of fresh fruit, plus eggs and sausages. Some guests also opt for buffet dinner (many are on half-board), but I suggest you take breakfast only and explore the restaurants in Korcula’s romantic old town in the evening.
Out front there’s a pool rimmed with sun beds, and below that a small pebble beach. The hotel also has a wellness centre, with indoor pool, gym and beauty treatments. Other sport facilities including tennis courts, bicycle hire, sailing and windsurfing are available at the Liburna and Park sister-hotels.
Helpful and friendly staff.
Popular with European couples and families – many are on package deals.
