We had a fab time at Luca's, its a little tricky to find so we were pleased to have very precise walking directions from Luca before we arrived. Great welcome, lots of advice and help.
Other guests really welcoming and friendly.
Great location, not far from everything in terms of centre of town, but it was VERY hilly and steep! The whole island is very hilly.. but it also means you get a great view for your entire stay.
Unfortunatley we never made it into a room with a balcony as promised, but it was due to everyone deciding to stay longer. I would suggest that as we had paid for the best room it would have been better to give us that room and ask the people who had extended their stay to move to a different room, but no harm done. The room we had was excellent, and Luca made sure we had no next door neighbours on the landing to make up for not having a balcony! We will be back.. and hope we get the balcony next time : )
Many of the 'younger' travellers made friends and hung out together, but we usually bumped into them on the way back from diving or kayaking each day. We were always welcome to join in.
A lively night out is the VIDA bar.. if you mention are staying at Luca's you get a free shot and discount! Its hilarious for people watching!!! or joining in if you want to try the tequila bomb!!
If you want to go diving, there are 2 dives companies on the island, Viking is the bored tourist company who are 2 hour walk away and reluctant to commit to dive sites and pick ups (and expensive £90 for 1 or 2 dives depending on who you talk to). We used MARINESSA.. local chap, hilarious stories and we toasted a fantastic day with his homemade tipple when we got back to land! not much sealife, but cave diving was great and hubbie saw a huge octopus building his home out of glass... amazing pics!
Overall would recomend the island, Luca's and the Marinessa dive school
