Beautiful Island Posted 17-Aug-2010
Returned to Korcula 21 years after our honeymoon there. Needn't have worried about changes as it has actually improved since the fall of communism and because it is off the beaten track and isn't touristy like some islands. Hotel park like most Korculean hotels has no air conditioning, but the large glass doors to balcony can be left open all night - not a mosquito in sight! It's quite noisy however as folks stay up all night, but it's 'real' noise not that of thumping discos etc. Hotel staff most helpful and booked day trips, boat rental, tickets for the Moreska (a traditional must see dance which is performed twice every Thursday evening). We got half board which worked out well: Breakfast and lunch or breakfast and dinner. Food was fairly basic, but wine and beer are included and the buffet style suited all our tastes. The 2 - 2 1/2 hour sittings worked well too as all of us could grab a bite when we felt like it. Maid service was quick and unobtrusive and towels were changed daily. I finished my book quicker than expected but in the hotel sitting room (which had a large TV and was barely used) books left in the hotel (all languages were available!) were available for guests to read. It wasn't a 'posh' hotel, but it was clean the shower powerful and it suited our needs as we spent most of our time enjoying the superior views, lovely restaurants (once a day) and crystal clear water for swimming.
