Accommodation: highly recommended Hotel Cavtat in the perfect location for both relaxing in the sun and exploring surrounding cities, island and countries. We were welcomed in our balcony seaview room (a must) with a personal message from the General Manager wishing us a lovely honeymoon, which was really appreciated. The pool on the roof is amazing, beautiful scenery - although you needed to get there very early to get a spot. We didn't mind as sunbathing down by the harbour was just as good. The food was great, various options from typical English breakfast to more continental fruit, ham, cheese, croissants, etc. We were also pleased with the prices, cheaper than traditional European sun destinations.
Excurisions: We went to Dubrovnik via sea taxi - I was sea sick. It's an hours journey and about £8 return. We went by bus (the station is really near the hotel) the second time, which was only 30 mins and £2. Dubrovnik is a must - though if you can go outside the hours of 9.30 and 4pm then do because you'll avoid the thousands of cruise visitors (15,000 the first day we went!).
Ston - a beautiful city with great restaurants. We stopped off here during a private wine tour, which we arranged via one of the wine bars in Dubrovnik Old Town.
Korcula island is highly recommended, and we would have loved to have gone to Montenegro or Mostar in Bosnia-Herzegovnia, both available from Cavtat.
So glad we chose Cavtat, perfect base to explore from with a mixture of sun relaxation and attractions - I would never choose to stay in one of the cities - Cavtat, with all its location, beauty, history and culture, was perfect.
