Arriving here from busy crowded Dubrovnik the first thing we noticed and enjoyed was the quietness in Neum and at this hotel.
The second thing which amazed us was the hard- working friendly owner and her family crew who did a great job ensuring customers' satisfaction and running a super- clean, efficient small professional business with a friendly personal touch.
Fast free wi-fi, excellent shower. Handy little fridge in the room. Good-sized balcony with a unobstructed great sea view.
Right outside of the hotel they have their own beach with free sun beds and shade. The beach is protected from onshore winds by the (Croatian) island in front of it. The water in the sound is smooth, deep and perfectly clear. We didn't see rubbish anywhere - sadly something you can't find often in BIH.
So it is a wonderful spot for a relaxed watersports holiday. The town of Neum is so small that you don't need excuses if you feel too lazy to visit cultural sites. And you can always drive to Dubrovnik (1 hour) or Mostar ( 2 ½ hours) or read about the history of the region and find out why Neum belongs to BIH though it is completely surrounded by Croatia.
Price levels in BIH are much lower than in Croatia, and the value for money is tremendous - not the least at the Villa Nova Hotel.
