Arrived at the Grand Hotel on the evening of 7th September 2009 - just time for a quick drink at the bar and then retired for the night. I had booked a double room with balcony and sea view and when I woke the following morning I had a very pleasant surprise - a cracking view of the ocean and over to the neighbouring islands.
Spent several days relaxing by the pool (ample size - not very deep, very clean). There is a small food area just before the exit of the hotel to the pool that provides sandwiches and drinks with an outside bar (hidden) behind the raised sundeck area.
Back to the Hotel: The rooms were very clean and reasonable sized, Bathroom was very plush and soap/showercream (doubles as shampoo) is provided. Restaurant - large and often busy at the designated eating times... breakfast choice ok, but as many mention, the evening meal wasn't fantastic. It was often lukewarm but you could find something within the offering that was perfectly palatable.
Staff were quite helpful, especially reception. Got the feeling that as possibly winding down for the season some were ready to go - still, i'm not complaining. Orebic is beautiful - it's not a hustle and bustle place but i was surprised when walking the coastal path that there are other restaurants and shops; not too many but enough for the week i was there. Korcula is nice but prepared to come back with your sights and senses ringing from seeing/hearing Marco Polo's name everywhere!! The regular ferry to Korcula is caught from the little port a c. 20-min walk away - mistakenly i thought it went from the beach area below the pool (one does but only twice per day).
Overall i had a great trip and would consider using the Hotel again. Great location if want a little tranquillity.
