“Great Location, Poor Service”
Reviewed June 15, 2011

The only poor experience in Croatia on our trip were the Marco Polo Apartments. The location is superb and the rooms are nice. However, we work while we travel and we specifically requested a room with internet access. Upon our arrival we were informed that the room we were supposed to stay in was not available and we were switched to another house. We asked if it had internet service and were told that there should be free city wi-fi access. After getting our luggage up 2 stories we checked and there was no internet connection available. We were told that we could get a refund or wait until the next day to switch to the room in the house that we actually booked. We chose to do that as it was late in the day and really didn't have another option. Next day we went to check if wi-fi was available in the other room and it was. However, while we were checking we were told: Don't sit on the bed if you're not sure that you will take the room. We thought that was kind or rude and the Edita had a take it or leave it attitude towards us. Didn't offer anything to help our the situation, in contrast with all the other great service we have received while traveling in Croatia...I guess sometimes when you're in a touristy place you can start taking business for granted because you have a great location. However, to us location location is not as important as service. We wanted to work at night so we could enjoy Korcula during the day but couldn't do it and our 2 night stay ended up being a disappointment...

Marco Polo Apartments are centrally located in the old centre of Korcula, steps away from the main square. The apartments are located in a 600 year old house and all have baths & kitchenette (though they're on the small side), and for the low price it's one of the best options in Korcula. Also, Edita was so nice as to pick us up from the Ferry port. Overall a great value!
