This was our first time in Croatia, we stayed for 1 week early Oct 2012. I picked this hotel for its proximity to Dubrovnik and as it had a shuttle bus service to the city. The pool area had outstanding views out to sea and although it was end of season and cooling off temp wise (20-28 degrees) it was refreshing to swim in the seawater pool, not too cold. The rooms were very nice and were kept spotless by the maids everyday. There is a fridge which was handy as the wine from the supermarket up the hill on the main road was well cheap! We paid extra for a seaview - it was worth it as we overlooked a lovely stony beach/bay which was a few steps away. We also has a swim in the sea every day - it was a bit warmr than the pool. The sea is bright blue and totally clear.
We stayed half board - the food was excellent with plenty of choice. As it's buffet style you can certainly over indulge! The salads were great, there were many meat and fish courses and the sweets were excellent too. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. We visited Korcula Island and Dubrovnik which is a must! I recommend the walk around the fortress walls for the best views of the city.
We usually holiday in the Greek Islands but I found Croatia a nice change - just as lovely and certainly cheaper. In Korcula old town 2 large glasses of white wine were £2 each! (18 kuna)
The hotel also had a taverna nearby with another beach and a pier for regular boat taxis to Cavtat, Dubrovnik etc.
Overall a great relaxing holiday - lovely and quiet in Plat but Cavtat and Dubrovnik are close enough for a night out. Enjoy!
