After a bumpy boat ride from Dubrovnik we arrived at Hotel Lafodia rather hungry and were instantly disappointed in the spread put out in the buffet restaurant which had been specifically kept open for us. The food did not improve over the duration of our stay with the same horrors cropping up at every meal opportunity including garlic sprouts(!) which as you can imagine did not go down well with the hotel guests and so the remanants were recycled and disguised in soups and stews for days.
(However this was at the end of the season so may not necessarily apply to times when guests are flooding through every door, window, nook and cranny)
We were amazed at the room we were allocated. It was on the corner of the top floor with a balcony which went all the way round. Fantastic. Many hours were spent sat chilling with a jar of olives, a glass of wine and the view of the glittering sea below. Wow.
The hotel animation was very impressive. They had a range of activities on daily including water aerobics which took place in the sea (very amusing to watch), badminton and football tennis. On top of this the hotel also provides kayaks, canoes and pedalos free of charge because of this two members of our party were able to row around the whole island whilst the other member cycled up the hills on the hired bicylces (before he snapped the chain!)
Overall we enjoyed our stay at the hotel the only disappointment being the food and would like to take this opportunity to get in contact with Sid and Mary who were great company during our stay.
