Lina Apartments
Reviewed September 13, 2012

Just got back from a week in Lumbarda and already looking at availability for next spring. We travelled on a package with Monarch and didn't have much in the way of details about the transfers = don't worry everything is sorted even if your plane is delayed, as ours was. I have spent most of my holidays travelling around Greece staying in studios - in comparison with most of those the Lina apartments are great, plenty of wardrobe space and hangers, towels changes every other day, enough kitchen equipment to get you through a holiday and there is a small safe in the bedroom which is free of charge. Yes they could do with a bit of TLC but you're not going to be living there! I can't understand a previous comment about the on site restaurant being expensive, it does good food at a reasonable price. Although there are about 70 apartments there was very little noise, especially at a night. Yes the pool is small but as others have said the sea is just across a quiet road and is beautifully clean. Lumbarda itself is still a small village and you can still see fishermen mending their nets, but it does have 2 supermarkets - the bigger one is at the back of the apartments. It also has about 10 places to get something to eat - the five we went to in the week where all worth a try. If you like shopping you'll have to go into Korcula town as there is only 2 small, but good quality souvenir shops and a clothes outlet. Although this is such a small resort, out of the 6 night we spent there, 3 nights we found bars with live music one night local dancing and Friday night farmers market - which is very quaint/unique! A trip into Korcula town is a must, it really is a mini Dubrovnik. For those who like walking there are plenty of trails through the local woods and hills and we walked back from Korcula town on trails (about 8 miles), maps are available in the tourist office in the village. Mountain bikes can be hired locally too, as can small motorboats What struck me the most was how clean the island was (again comparing it with Greece) with well kept villages and very little litter. There was not many English holiday makers but all the local people can speak very good English. I loved it but I don't think it would be for everyone.

This place was terrible, in fact, the worst restaurant we visited during our Croatian trip.

The service was bad; After we ordered, we waited 1 hour to get our food. This is after asking the waiter TWICE about the waiting time. Her response was; the kitchen is backed up (even though we could clearly see that it was not!).

The food was mediocre at best; Greek salad wasn't even dressed and the octopus had some chewy connective tissue under the skin. I can't remember what the 3rd dish was...all I remember is that the French fries were the best thing on the plate!

Walk a little further down the water side, find a better restaurant...

We knew what we had booked and paid for so when we arrived we weren't expecting anything special so therefore we weren't too disappointed with what we got.

Apartments: The apartments are clean and spacious. They have the basics for self catering but with no kettle and no toaster, there is only so much you can do in the kitchen. There is however a hob, a microwave and plates, cutlery, glasses etc. When we arrived our shower head was broken and none of the lamps worked but after we told reception these were fixed the next day. We felt that the staff had the attitude of 'let's not bother to fix it unless someone asks us to'. The beds were old and creaky but our room was very quiet and had a fairly private terrace outside which was nice. It was a comfortable stay for us and the extra space was much appreciated after backpacking for 2 weeks in tiny hotel rooms.

Facilities: There is a small swimming pool and children's pool. There is also a restaurant that has a pretty varied menu and good food. The atmosphere isn't great but is 'family' friendly. Yummy Pizzas!

Lumbarda: is a surprisingly quaint little town with a sleepy, relaxed atmosphere. The beaches are really nice (pebble and sand) and the water is so clear and beautiful for swimming. There is a supermarket, post office, bank, a few bars and a few lovely restaurants along the sea front. When we arrived we were nervous about being 'cut off' with no car but the bus goes into Korcula town every hour which costs 15kn and a taxi is about 100kn and takes about 15 minutes. Overall we had a pleasant few days here.

we stayed here for 5 nights , booked with travel republic £ 360 for the 5 nights . I would say that that was a fair price for what we got . we stayed in apt 7b which has a fantastic sea and pool view w found it to be very basic but it was clean . The hotel has quite a lot of steps too as it is built on a hill so if you are not that good on your feet i wouldn't think it was for you . There is a very good supermarket at the back of the appartments and a beach bar around the corner . Taxi into korcula town costs about 10 euro and a water taxi 20 euro . we did however use the local bus which ran a service up to 7 pm . It is worth noting that if you intend to use the early morning catermeran you buy your tickets in the morning the day before . The ticket office is only open for half an hour in the morning 6am and then 7pm . We found that all the tickets had gone by the night and this caused us a few hours of panick as we wern't sure how we were going to get to hvar . ( especialy as the receptionist had phoned up jadrolina and told us that the other ferry was full too ! ) . It wasnt full at all ? and if you need to do this there is a taxi rank around the corner which will take you for 50 euro it takes 40 minutes . There are some great restaurants with in a 5 minute walk and we found them to be very inexpensive compared to the uk even the hotels restaurant which has a lovely view across the bay . I would stay here again as it was so relaxing and the views were great .

nice location but lack lustre management appears to have allowed service and facilities to become run down inconsistent and sloppy. Had dangerous mould in bathroom (which we had to attend to ourselves with products from the local supermarket), also found light fittings broken, missing appliances, rude service at the restaurant and noise from beach bar all night on some nights kept us awake. No assistance is provided for managing luggage up steep stairs which are after rain slippy and where whilst we were there 3 people fell on the steps, and management walked by without comment on at least one occasion. The pool looked lovely but was not clean enough to swim in with mould on sides. The views from some rooms are great, but some trimming of trees would provide views to more apartments located directly on the beach front, but due to garden maintenance not being carried out have only outlooks into tree foliage.
