From the moment I arrived I found the staff to be most welcoming and all had very good English. There was always a warm greeting at the front desk and in the bar area with smiles all around, even at the end of a busy summer season. The hotel has an excellent location in the centre of Vela Luka from where visitors can discover beautiful walking paths, hire bicycles, scooters or cars. The summer season had just ended so the hotel and town were pretty quiet but that suited me. I hired a car for two days to tour the island (30 miles long and 5 miles wide approx.) and was really refreshed leaving.
The down-side is the difficulty of access. I flew to Dubrovnik airport, took a bus to the city, and another to Korcula Island. There is only one bus there each day, at 3.00 p.m. and it takes about 5 hours including stops. The only bus leaving the island for Dubrovnik was at 5.15 a.m.! Apparently it is easier to reach by ferry from Split. Still, the hotel had a packed breakfast waiting for me as I left at 5.00 a.m. to end a wonderful experience.
My abiding memory of this hotel is the wonderful staff who did so much to make the stay enjoyable, even teaching me some Croatian.
