Just spent a week at the Kalamota Island Resort that has just been extensively refurbished by the Karisma Group. The refurb hasn't been completed yet and there were clearly some initial teething problems that the resort team had to resolve and some work still going on that was occasionally noisy. Resort staff were superb, very friendly and attentive with nothing too much trouble for them. They genuinely seemed pleased to see the guests and wanted them to enjoy their holiday. Rooms were well appointed, comfortable and kept spotless by the very efficient cleaning team. The quality of the food was excellent and the al fresco dining experience is recommended. This is very much a 'fair weather' resort and if the weather was against you during your visit it could impact severely on the holiday as there is only limited indoor accommodation for guests beyond their rooms. If you have any sort of mobility problems then this could be an issue as there are a lot of steps, some of them quite high, particularly to the higher apartment blocks. The island of Kolocep is absolutely beautiful and peaceful with lots of walks to enjoy. The resort offers a bookable boat service to and from Dubrovnik and there is also the, cheaper, regular local ferry. The times of boat transport mean that you can organise a trip to Dubrovnik very easily. Once all the refurb work has been completed this will definitely be a five star resort, particularly if the level of customer care we experienced is maintained.
