“Beautiful hotel and experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2013

We had a ten night stay at hotel Lafodia beginning September 1st. It was absolutely fantastic. The hotel rooms, pool area, bars and restaurants were spotlessly clean. The staff went out of their way to help as much as possible. All extremely polite. The entertainment staff were absolutely spot on too. Well done Robin, Renato and Borno! It's hard to please everyone, but they seemed to manage it.
The food was better at lunchtime rather than the evening meal. But that's not a negative comment. It's was just quieter at lunch, and nothing was stored in the Bain Marie's. it was all fresh.
The views from the rooms were stunning, and took my breath away every single day.
The most relaxing holiday I have ever had.
Thoroughly enjoyed every minute.
Would recommend to friends and family.

Room Tip: Once there we could have upgraded but all the rooms are quiet, spacious and extremely clean. We felt...

We have just spent an amazing week at this hotel and cannot fault a thing! If you are looking for a total relax this is the place! The staff are exceptional. Nothing is too much trouble for them. Our special thanks go to Matija our waiter and jasya on reception.

Room Tip: All rooms face the sea. The suites are amazing, especially the jacuzzi

We stayed in Sept last year. The weather was terrible for half the time we were there, but I think it was like that all over at that time. It did not,however, spoil our holiday for one minute. I would go back to this island tomorrow, it was so unique, from the arrival to the departure on their little boat. The hotel was fabulous and the rooms, although ours was not spacious, were beautiful. No issues with cleaning and the maids coming of a night with evening chocolates was very nice. Plenty of walks on this little island, a dodgy moment when a snake slithered past me on one on the way up to the top of the island, but it all added to the uniqueness of this trip. Visited Barbaras restaurant, when the power went off due to the storms so another adventure again, food wasn't fantastic, just ok. The pizza restaurants on the front great value for money. Went with the tour operator to Dubrovnik, but think would go on the ferry next time. Nice day out, best to go early on as did get crowded. We never usually return to a hotel (apart from Banks Mansion in Amsterdam), but I will return here sometime. I would recommend this hotel to Adults. There didn't appear to be much for small children, however, that may have changed since we visited and a pair of beach shoes is helpful to get in and out of the water due to the pebbles. The infinity pool has one of the most relaxing views I have experienced, and the cocktails at this bar deserve a gold star mention. We were half board at this hotel, and thought that drinks prices were very reasonable. The only reason we haven't been back is because we decided to visit a couple of other countries this year, but I am seriously considering a 10 night stay for next summer, and will ensure I take my hiking boots for a proper look around this unique and friendly little island.

We have just returned from one week's holiday at Lopud island. We stayed at Lafodia hotel and we must say the hotel and it's staff are wonderful. We would like to mention Borna from Animation as he was very polite and helpful. He organised and attended complimentary daily hiking and sport activities and would tell us about island life. Almost every day we had lunch at the hotel's La Baja bar where we were served by Ivan who was professional and a lot of fun to talk with which was another part that made our holiday. The hotel is situated at one end of the bay, our room was lovely and modern and we had a beautiful view across the bay. There was a good buffet selection at breakfast and we were able to sit outside on the balcony and enjoy the views. We chose to eat out every evening to experience local cuisine and we were not disappointed. People at Lopud island are very friendly and welcoming. As the island has no motor vehicles it is a perfect place to relax.

You can explore the island as there are a few walks which could take you up to the Fort which has amazing views of the island and you can see the other local islands & Dubrovnik or over to the over side of the island to the beautiful 'sunj' beach.
There is so much we would like to say about this wonderful island but you just need to go and experience if for yourself.

If you are looking for a peaceful getaway this is the place to go and we will return.

This is a beautiful unspoilt island and our experience of the lafodia resort is all positive. High class service with a relaxed delivery. Efficient friendly staff add to the quality of the facilities. The ' no car ' island really adds to the tranquility of the stay. Highly recommended.

Just stayed a week in Hotel Lafodia, on the Island of Lopud, with my wife and our 18m old daughter and have had a wonderful holiday. Any apprehensions about going to an old 'eastern communist state' were blown away. We found a very modern, stylish hotel with great service on a beautiful island with a delightful little town that had strong flavours of Italy at its best.
We booked last minute with Cosmos and went half-board. We opted for the transfer and would recommend this option. The airport is quite south from Dubrovnik and Lopud is a little way north of the city. The transfer was very straight-forward: 45 min on a mini-bus then a 15min on the Hotel's boat. Check in was very efficient.
The hotel was clean and very modern and the service was excellent. The food was great. Breakfast is a smart, buffet affair and dinner was waiter service from a limited menu. All rooms have a sea view. The beach is pebble and a cheap pair of reef shoes would not go amiss. The sea is crystal clear and still quite warm. The main pool is nominally for adults, though we took our daughter here a couple of times without any problems. There is a small children's area with a small play park and two very small pools.
Lopud town has plenty of options for eating and is spread along the bay from right beside the hotel all the way to the main dock, a walk of about 10mins. Sunj beach on the other side of the island is about 45min walk away (a short steep hill) or you can get a golf cart taxi. The ferry to Dubrovnik leaves 5 times a day and takes about 50mins and costs 46kuna (about £5) return. You get dropped off in the new port at Dubrovnik, about 2k from the main sites of the old city but the bus stop is right there and will drop you in. Take the bus 1A or 1B back at the end of the day. We got to Dubrovnik for about 9ish and had a good hour to ourselves before the overwhelming cruise ships crowds poured in. The ferry also stops at Kolocep and Sipan and I can say neither are a patch on Lopud.
Had a great stay and would thoroughly recommend this wonderful hotel on a lovely Croatian island.

We have just returned from a two week stay at Lafodia. Arrived by hotel boat. Reception got you checked in very quick and was very cheerful. Room was beautiful clean and had great view. Pool was beautiful and quiet until our last three days when a family of six turned up and was putting towels on sun beds at 7.30 am and then goin down to beach till 3.30pm. Then they was loud and everyone got annoyed with them. That was the only down side to a holiday that was amazing. Food great and all the waiters was great always very friendly. Lopud was very quiet due to no cars on the island. Got the ferry to dubrovnik only cost 23 kuna. Got a taxi up to the cable car and went to the top and the view from the top looking downon the old town was well worth it. We tryed to book a trip to dubrovnik with hotel agent but said they had to cancel due to low numbers. Dont bother go and do it yourselfs if you catch the 7.15 ferry you can get a return one at 1.30 or 3.30. We loved it and would love to return soon.
