Hotel Adria
Ranked #6 of 7 Hotels in Vela Luka
Reviewed August 21, 2007

The building is old and ex-communist, however the real problems are not with the architecture, in fact the pool and beach are actually rather nice. The real problem stems from the food which you are pretty muched forced into with the all-inclusive billing. I have read the other report about the food being good - but find it hard to believe that what we expreienced could have been an aberation, it appeared to be continuously bad. To compound the matter the hotel may be only 2.5km from town but it is on an unlit pathway which is not suitable for walking back after dark - even with torches. This meant that it was difficult to go out for dinner and get back as this is very much a one taxi town. As the title to this review suggests we left early (happy to pay the early departure penalty just to get away). There is very little to say good about this hotel - other than it has a delightful pool. The cost for the exceptionally low quality food was rather distressing and we were very happy to move away.

Reviewed September 28, 2006

The hotel is located in 20 years old post communist building, which is only partly renewed. The site is clean but remotely located 2.5 km from the city of Vela Luka. The rooms from the seaside are quite good except for the windows that are old. There is no beach; only concrete platforms. The sea bottom is raher steep with many stones (shoes necessary). Water's quite warm and clear but not so clear as in Egypt. Snorkelling possible but not interesting.
Service proffessional.
Animation is rather poor: disco or the so called live music performed by one person. Both end around 11 PM. The music is so loud that it is impossible to sleep having a room from the seaside (where the music is performed).
They offer excurtions to Dubrovnik, Mostar, island Mliet, and Korcula round trip. However, the trips are kind of survival. They do not properly care of tourists. For example: from the hotel 6 people went to Dubrovnik, but only 4 returned, and nobody knew where they were left... So beware.
What makes the hotel exceptional is the food they serve. It is very tasty with many changes day after day. Always fresh and properly cooked. I have a sensitive stomach but I never had any trouble. People I talked to shared this opinion. The food definitely deserves five stars.
