The Lina Apartments are situated in an ideal location for the facilities of Lumbarda village. There is an good supermarket about 5 minutes walk away, just behind the apartments. A fruit/vegtable market and local bakery are also nearby. Just opposite the complex is the sea and a small pebble beach with an excellent beach bar is around 2 minutes walk away. For those who prefer a sandy beach, this is to be found around 5 minutes away. The sea is an amazing colour and appeared to be extremely clean, which made it ideal for swimming. There is a swimming pool at the apartments, although this was always full of children and the sunbeds were reserved with towels at dawn, so we chose to stick to the sea. Like many of the restaurants in Lumbarda, the hotel restaurant was of a good standard, with excellent pizza and local specialties. However, we did experience an issue with the credit card machine being out of use - this also applied for much of the island so make sure you have enough cash when you plan your holiday budget. The supermarket did take cards and this worked when we were there. The accommodation is not suitable for disabled people as there are a great number of steps leading up to the apartment, which made sitting on our terrace pleasant. The accommodation was generally clean and of a fair standard when compared to places we've stayed before around the Med. Items such as light-bulbs were missing and despite asking for them to be replaced this did not happen in some instances. The kitchen equipment is lacking e.g. no bottle opener, serving dishes etc. However, we didn't find this to be too much of a problem as we borrowed from neighbours. The hot water was very hot but did run out after four showers. The air conditioning worked well and the linen was clean and changed twice a week. Sky News and BBC World News were available on the satellite TV. Mosquitos were an issue in the area at the time of our visit (July), so I'd recommend purchasing some insect repellent and bite cream before leaving the UK. On a side note, there are some excellent local wineries within less than a mile of the apartments, which are well worth a walk out to for an afternoon visit. The larger beaches are within around 20 minutes walk of the apartments and there is a fairly regular bus service (not evenings - taxi available) to Korcula Town, which is the main centre for the area and also very interesting. Weekly excursions are available to Dubrovnik, Mostar and Mljet for those who are interested and are all worthwhile.
