Literally just arrived back from this last minute 4 night break to Kalamota. We only wanted a cheap last minute deal and found this through Thomsons. What a good choice. The island is beautiful and the setting of the hotel (the only one on the island) is lovely. There are no roads and therefore no cars so its really peaceful.... More

“Recommended but Improvement Needed”. This was the title of my previous TripAdvisor review of this hotel just after it first opened in May 2014 and, for some reason, it attracted nearly 4,000 readers. So, exactly one year later, what’s changed and will I still be recommending it following my latest visit? Firstly, a bit about the hotel and its setting.... More

Location is beautiful. 30 mins enjoyable boat ride from Dubrovnik harbour (assuming weather is good). The sea around the island is crystal clear. Beautiful swimming. We found the room very comfortable and generally clean (bin wasn't emptied on a number of occasions) We had a room overlooking the bay. Rooms looking away from the bay might not feel so impressive(?)... More

We are Mexico Karisma hotel travelers and since we were going to Greece, we added a 6 day stay at Kalamota hotel. The good news is that the staff are, with rare exceptions, outstandingly helpful and friendly; check in was a breeze as we arrived separate from the groups. The location, on the NW end of the island, is also... More

We stayed here following a weeks cruise around the Adriatic, both are recommended. The island is about a 30 minute boat trip from Dubrovnik port and can it must be said be a little choppy on the way over. My wife took a sea sickness tablet and was pleased she did as the boat did roll and pitch a fair... More

What a fantastic holiday we experienced at the Kalamota Island Resort by Karisma, courtesy of the stay part of a Thomson Cruise and Stay package. The hotel is set on the bay front at Donje Celo on the island of Kolocep with rooms set in the hillside behind in the form of Villa blocks. This obviously means that there are... More
