What a fantastic place. Starting from the moment you board the transfer boat at Dubrovnik You are completely 'chilled out'. Kolecep island being traffic free means no noise pollution. The staff are fantastic and are determined to make your stay as pleasant as possible. The food offer is the best we have ever experienced. The buffet restaurant menu is extensive... More

We were moved to this hotel after a problem with our previous hotel in Makarska, but it was not a disappointment. The setting of Kolocep Island is beautiful as you first arrive via boat from Dubrovnik. It's a small initmate hotel, with amazing staff who cannot do enough for you. We travelled there in late June as a couple (in... More

We stayed at Kalamota in May 2015. It was the perfect location to spend our honeymoon. The island is absolutely stunning and very peaceful. The views from the hotel itself were beautiful. The staff are extremely friendly and very helpful. In particular the maintenance staff and the bar and restaurant staff. There was a large selection of food and plenty... More

Having recently returned from this island, I have to say, our stay was almost perfect!
