Wow, you get a good idea from Trip Advisor, but never the full picture of what to expect, wow again. A really great little hotel located right on the harbour front in Lopud. You can arrange your own transfer on the standard ferry, or the hotel can arrange one for you, including airport pickup for 600 kuna door to door, what a way to start your holiday.
We stayed in the red room which had wonderful high ceilings, a lovely tiled floor, a rain effect shower looking out over the sea and my favourite (sad I know) but original wooden windows with complex fixings.
The room was very clean, tidy and functional. A couple of things needed attention, the CD player did not have a plug and the shower had come slightly away from the wall, but I'm sure they will be resolved. Just to note, the room doesn't have a TV, but who needs a TV when you are coming on a holiday like this, we did watch a couple of films on my laptop on the one windy/rainy night. Note: Reception has films and books galore.
The staff at La Villa were very friendly and spoke perfect English. Breakfast was continental and served on the patio area overlooking the sea. A wonderful setting, for the typical continental cheeses and meats, might get a bit repetitive after a week, but we had an interesting quiche like item appear on the last day which was very tasty.
All requests, extra pillow etc were dealt with very quickly and cleaning staff very friendly.
A word of warning, the hotel does NOT accept credit cards for short stays, luckily they let us know before hand as my bank card limit would not have allowed me to withdraw enough money for the stay at the ATM. There is an ATM at the far end of the harbour.
There is free Internet in the hotel, which worked really well.
There is plenty to do, lots of places to walk, bars, restaurants etc. A really nice place to unwind. I'd certainly recommend coming to Lopud and if you do decide to stay more than a day, I'd recommend staying at La Villa. The staff here clearly know what they are doing and listen carefully to what works for their guests. Full marks!
