Overlooking a lovely bay on the island of Koločep. Regular ferries run to and from Dubrovnik (journey time 25 minutes), also proceeding to the nearby islands of Lopud and Šipan.
Built in 1970 and fully renovated in 2006, the hotel comprises eight villas on a hillside overlooking the sea. The 151 rooms all have balconies (sea view or park view), tile floors and simple modern furnishing, plus air conditioning, mini-bar, safe and flat screen TV with free internet and video-on-demand. Junior suites combine a double room and living room with sofa bed.
The restaurant has a big functional dining room, plus tables on a sea-view terrace out front. WiFi is available in all the public spaces.
Eating and drinking
Decent buffet breakfast features muesli, yogurt, fruit, and sausages and eggs. Typical Dalmatian fare, a la carte, at lunch and dinner, plus buffet dinner in high season (many guests are on half board). I’d suggest opting for breakfast only, and exploring the island’s other eateries (a couple of seasonal restaurants and a pizzeria) for dinner.
There’s a big round pool and a sandy beach with shallow water out front, plus a tennis court and a kids’ playground with swings and a slide. The hotel has partnered with an adventure sports company arranging sea kayaking, scuba diving and sailing. Also massage and speed boat excursions on request.
Committed to sustainable tourism, the hotel has a policy of employing exclusively people from the island. All the staff are courteous, friendly, helpful and efficient.
