The hotel was spotless. Great furnishings in rooms, great bedding. Spotlessly clean. "Funky & Fun". Tea and coffe making facilities in room. (Take your own suppliers as the tea may be 'herbal' and they don't provide coffee!!)
Pool/beach towels changed daily. Great toiletries in room. Could not fualt it!!
Food - disappointing. Service in restaurant. ~ Attentive to the wrong areas. Should be re-making tables for guests coming in for dinner after the 7 pm start. (Not everyone wants to eat as soon as the doors open (with the Russians). Great that they serve water with the meals offering us still or sparkling - would like to have had the option to order and pay for beer/wine. Near the end of the first week before we saw that this an option. Food not very warm and not very exciting.
Location of hotel was great - pool area with nice comfortable beach beds and no need to get up at dawn to reserve one was a bonus. The hotel beach was pebbly, but again no problem getting a bed. Or you can walk to the other side of the island to get to a lovely sandy cove (very popular with the boating fraternity). 1,000 m walk to beach 20 minutes at a brisk pace - but be warned it is uphill going!!! There were electric 'golf buggy' transfers available should the walk be too strenuous. Be warned part of this beach is frequented by nudists. Quite amusing to watch the expressions of the new-comers when they realised that there were completely nude people walking in and out of the sea alongside themselves!! No problem if one wanted to go 'native' and the other preferred no too. Beach beds and parasols available on the beach 25k for each bed and parasol. PLUS great lunch-time food and drink available.
Easy to get a local ferry to Dubrovnik (took 50 mins/ cost 23k) and from the port it was a quick 10 minute bus journey to the old city (bus no. 1 or 1A) You can get a ticket from the tobacco booth near the bus stop for 10k or buy one on the bus bus for 12k . Alternatively a walk of about 25 minutes took you to the entrance to the old city.
Only 1 shop on Lopud which wasn't for souvinirs so don't rely on buying any essentials when you arrive.
A great tranquil spot no cars on the island - only the water and the beach to keep kids entertained. Great sunsets and a great place to chill.
