We stayed for 2 weeks between 22 June and 6 July, ground floor with sea view in block 6. I agree with most previous reports that the hotel well positioned overlooking the bay with superb views. Recently refurbished, the rooms have been well thought out and refurbished to a high standard, especially the bathroom although i thought the small wash... More

I must agree with many of my fellow contributors when I find complaints against this hotel wholly unfounded. The food was generally good, the views and location wonderful, the staff excellent. I can only assume that many complain because it gives them a sense of superiority when, judging by their dress and demeanour, they must feel quite intimidated. I stayed... More

We have just returned from a wonderful holiday at this resort; my husband and I couldn't understand were any of the negative reports came from. This hotel is new and the management and staff are trying their hardest to make sure every guest has a lovely holiday, every member of staff go the extra mile and always with a smile.... More

Really did not live up to the description given verbally to me by the staff in the branch that I booked with. Also the brochure was not accurate, some features just did not exist. The promised dining in a la carte restaurants was a lottery to get a booking. Weather was very wet during our stay and the hotel is... More

Me and my boyfriend have just returned from a weeks stay commencing the 29th June. The efficiency of getting from the airport to the hotel was fantastic. As soon as we landed we were greeted by Thomson who led us to the coach which then took us to the harbor. We got on the ferry staright away which then took... More

Kolocep island is really quiet so if you want to walk, swim and just relax it's perfect then you can get the boat to Dubrovnik old city and other Islands from 10 mins walk from hotel. The hotel was great, the staff were so genuinely friendly and helpful, the food was great, plenty of choice, the Pilates session was really... More

Just returned from a 2 week holiday (8th to 22nd June) at the Karisma resort on Kolocep Island and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. From day 1 we were impressed with the hotel, the staff, the food and the island itself. Week one was glorious sunshine and we got chatting to people immediately and was as though we had been there...

I didn't stay at the hotel, I only visited the spa for a massage. The massage was excellent. However, there is no spa-section inside the hotel. The spa is located outside in a tent near the sewer filter system. I can not understand why. I had what could have been a lovely massage, but the intense smell of sewer ruined... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Kalamota Island Resort, by Karisma, formerly known as Hotel Villas Kolocep, had an overall and complete renovation in 2013/2014 into an all-inclusive couples and adults (over 18) only resort. Kalamota Island Resort by Karisma is the only hotel on the island with a dense countryside of palms, orange and olive trees. Kolocep is a traffic-free island, has only 160 friendly inhabitants and 250 sunny days a year that give you a sensation of living on your own private island, only 30 minutes by boat from Dubrovnik. At Kalamota Island Resort guests are courted with nature, assisted by surroundings that provide a full experience of a well-deserved holiday. The property and staff are intertwined to stimulate all senses, pastimes and leisure pursuits. The resort is located on a beach that extends to the little village and port, offering seclusion and ample space to the guests that wish to retain their peace. Kalamota Island Resort is perfect for adults who choose to be pampered in nature. Active relaxation in intimate surroundings is what awaits the guests. ... more   less
