“Pension Lovric, Lumbarda, Korcula, Croatia”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

We stayed at Pension Lovric for three nights as part of a two week holiday on Croatia’s Dalmatian Coast, flying into Dubrovnik and out of Venice. Silvana and her team made us feel very welcome. The apartment, with balcony, overlooks the sea and is situated just a few minutes walk from Lumbarda town, and smooth white rocky beaches where you can sunbathe and jump straight into the blue Adriatic sea. Lumbarda is a lovely town with a local market one night each week where you can buy delicious seafood dishes and wine for an inexpensive dinner (Croatia is not cheap).
Korcula town is also beautiful, especially the old part with its fortresses on the coast and narrow white stone streets to explore, with shops, bars and restaurants.
We were even given a packed breakfast by Pension Lovric to take with us very early next morning for the catamaran in Korcula to take us to another island.
In Croatia, we stayed in apartments during our trip to make it more affordable. Generally these are very basic, but very clean. Bearing this in mind Pension Lovric rooms are nice the staff were very helpful and they have a restaurant too.
If you plan to travel from island to island in Croatia, information on things like ferry and catamaran times can only be got from ticket offices at the destination. From Dubrovnik to Mljet and from Mljet to Korcula you can only buy tickets on the day, not the day before. However from Korcula to Hvar, which is very busy, you have to buy the tickets the day before.
Travelling by boat and catamaran is a good way to see the Dalmatian Coast. We took an overnight ferry up to Rijeka from Stari Grad on Hvar, managing without a car for the trip, which can be done. Boats and buses are clean and always leave on time.
Rovinj (buses from Rijeka via Pula are more frequent than Rijeka-Rovinj) is a pretty city too, where you can hire bikes and cycle along two miles of coast with plenty of places to stop and swim. There are nice places to have a drink, though all the restaurants are so geared up for the tourist trade that meals are expensive. If your stay does occur during one of the town’s evening festivals, get a ticket for a seafood dinner and glass of wine, as it is just as delicious and much better value than the restaurants.
If you want to go somewhere really beautiful on the Dalmatian Coast, then book a trip to Mljet where you can hire bikes and cycle round the national park’s salt water lakes, as these are stunning and peaceful.

Room Tip: Balcony rooms allow for self catering and overlook the sea

I stayed at Pension Lovric for two nights in early August 2013. Everyone at Lovric was very kind and generous. The location is about 15 minutes from Korcula town where the ferries dock. We were able to walk to a sandy beach and a few wineries while staying at Lovric. Silvana and her family could not have done more for us - she even packed us lunch for our long travel day! Definitely recommend Pension Lovric - great location and value.

Although we didn't stay at this property during our time in Croatia, we were fortunate enough to enjoy an excellent dinner here one evening. The restaurant isn't widely publicised in the resort and we stumbled upon it by accident. However, the meal was fabulous. We chose the 120kn (£14) set menu, from which you could chose meat or fish. This was great value for money as we started with homemade aperitifs - either Croatian limoncello (slightly different to the Italian version) or schnapps. This was followed by bread and vegetable soup (all home grown produce). The main course was fantastic - we had pork and chicken served with mashed potatoes and Swiss chard, courgette fritters and courgette puree. The portions were of a great size and the taste was lovely and fresh. Indeed, it was like eating home cooking in someone's home. Pudding was Croatian chocolate cake, which also tasted good. The meal was followed by a large cup of Turkish coffee, which we loved. We also enjoyed the Lovric white wine, which was the ideal accompaniment to our meal. The staff here were really friendly and very welcoming, as well as efficient. They gave us a gift at the end of the meal, which added a personal touch. This is certainly a must for every visitor to Lumbarda - it was surprisingly empty the day we visited, which was a total mystery to us as it was the best restaurant we visited during our stay here - I'd recommend that you try this one out.

Nice rooms and location with good price value relationship. Evening menu a little bit too rigid in their formula but of excellent quality. Very friendly and helpful host Silvana Milina. Nicest beaches a good 20 minutes footwalk away (healthy). Easy bus service to Korcula town. You really don't need a car!!! Self produced wines are very good!!!

Room Tip: Ask for sea view!

My accommodation was comfortable, clean and cool. The meals were prepared from foods that were in season and local. They were delicious. I was in the lower rooms of the older building so had a suite,with complete kitchen and washing machine which Silvana helped me operate. It was as quiet as the morning roosters would allow. As it was fully screened, I was able to sleep with the windows wide open and there was what I took to be a blooming jasmine tree outside the bedroom.
My only suggestion to Silvana would only be to address the fact that though MOST of the civilized world appreciates wine with their meals, for those of us who don't drink alcohol, providing tea or coffee with all meals instead of just breakfast would have been a nice gesture. Even just a basket of tea bags and some hot water.
This was the best vacation that I have ever had and location had a lot to do with that. Thank you all..........

Room Tip: Liked mine best- see description above. Not ultra modern, but so cool and quiet- no AC needed.

This amazing painting trip by Slikamilina (Lynda) was well thought out. Our apartment had two bedroooms and three bathrooms, a wonderful common area and beautiful veranda. My roommate and I had our own private areas and ample common areas (dining room, kitchen, patio). At the end of the day we could spread out our paintings on the patio to dry. Plenty of space for cleaning brushes and a great refrigerator for keeping GRK cold. Oh, the GRK wine is to die for. I would return to Pension Lovric.

Room Tip: As for a second floor room in the new building. Bring sandals for swimming in the adriatic. You...

The Lovric Hotel has been exceptional both times we've visited. Silvana and her team took pains to tend our every need and whim. When we brought to her attention a concern, she fixed the problem promptly. Her bountiful, delicious dinners and house-made wines and specialty drinks were scrumptious -- always. Even dessert was good. A perfect place for a relaxing experience away from the high-traffic, fussy world.

Room Tip: Some of the rooms have beautiful views of the bay.
