Just returned from Osmine Hotel after a week's break with friends. The trip from the airport provided some of the most stunning scenery we have ever seen and the location of the hotel in a beautiful cove with views over it from every room was to 'die for'. Granted the hotel looks tired and could do with an upgrade, but was immaculately clean and the accommodation comfortable.
The food was very good with a reasonable selection and everything was tasty and well cooked. The only gripe would be the coffee, pre sweetened and therefore not to everyone's taste. Local drinks were limited in selection, but try hard enough and you will find a combination to suit! The steps..... Yes a killer, but get easier as the week goes on and rest points along the way. We found the hill at the opposite side of the restaurant, whilst still steep, made the climb slightly easier.
The only thing we'd recommend is that you take a travel kettle, t-bags and UHT milk for the room, if like us you like a brew first thing in the morning - as the only place you will get one at that time of day is in the restaurant - yes 120 steps down.
Dubrovnik old town is simply delightful and shouldn't be missed.
We took full advantage of the free canoes and pedalos, making our way gently across the mill pond like sea. A bike ride to Slano proved enjoyable after many years since being on a bike and the flat route around the coast was a dream.
As a first experience of Croatia for us all, I can say it was like finding a hidden gem, not a McDonalds to be found and like stepping back in tourism time - amazing. Everyone we met was helpful and friendly and one kind man even drove us back to the bus station in Dubrovnic after we missed our stop. Lovely people, lovely place, fantastic holiday - just do it - you won't be disappointed!!
