I can not even tell you how stunning Croatia is. One of the best holidays. The hotel is a little bit of a way out and the shuttle boats aren't great times but if you plan your days you can manage. The staff are amazing, couldn't do enough for you. The rooms are clean. It's a little hilly with lots of steps so ask for low rooms if you think you can't manage steps. Different cocktails every day, amazing breakfasts, lunch and dinner great too. All in all a lovely peaceful week.... just needed the ... Read more

The hotel was set in an idealic island about30 minutes, by boat, from Dubrovnik. The room, a suite, was very spacious (not the most comfortable) with normal hard bed. Food was very good from the main buffet restaurant, the only coment I would make of this is that I have been offered a larger selection, however this is not a critisism. Yet another coment to make is thatthe service by the waiters was good and bad depending on who was working! We usually sat in the outside section and found that w... Read more

Yes there are many steps to the accommodation but this is made clear in the brochure information so we knew in advance before booking.

We visited the Sensimar Kalamota Island Resort late May 2016 - and had a lovely stay. The weather was fantastic all week - high 20's every day. The hotel itself is fairly small - only 8 or 9 blocks (villas) consisting of roughly 30 rooms each across 3 floors. We stayed in villa 6, 2nd floor and were facing the back in a standard room. So the room itself didn't have a view - obviously you can pay to upgrade to a sea view - and the view is spectacular from block 6, overlooking the bay. absolutely ... Read more

It was a choppy ride out to the island and was a little concerned when on landing we were directed to the buildings across the bay. All was dispelled with the best ever check-in , handed a glass of bubbly and instructions to our villa/app 4-2-4. It was up a lot of steps but a lovely apartment awaited us. The meals were great ,the 2 visits to a la carte restaurants were easily got at 24 hrs notice and worth the visit. The drinks package was one of the bet ever with little or no restrictions.

This is an ideal alternative the frantic pace of Dubrovnic and "all inclusive" included premium drinks and bottled water at no extra charge, unlike some we could mention. In fact, you could stay here, have a super holiday and not spend anything - it is that good. The island is half an hour from Dubrovnic but baggage is handled by the hotel from the Dubrovnic quayside all the way to your room while you just wander along smiling at what feels like your own private island.

We picked the resort from brochure as our honeymoon destination as I had previously visited Zagreb and found the people to be so friendly. From arrival to departure the staff could not have been more helpful. The boat ride from Dubrovnik was amazing, and turning into the bay and seeing the resort was magical. The food in all the restaurants was first class. I am a fussy eater whereas the wife is happy with allsorts. I had no trouble finding good choices to eat. The staff were amazing, always he...

We have just returned from two wonderful weeks at this hotel and the experience was great from start to finish. Croatia is simply stunning and getting to explore from the peace and tranquility of Kolocep island made it even more special. I'm not sure if this review will say much different to others but it certainly will support the lovely things other travellers have said.

Just completed a fabulous week chilling after a cruise. Could not fault our stay there. Everything was perfect. All inclusive food and drink of the finest quality. The staff were fabulous and the entertainment was just right for a quiet holiday; it was there if you wanted it. JJ led the daytime activities including boules and giant Kenya and managed the casino night. Wonderful. Missing it already.

Just returned from a ten day holiday at this hotel and we where so impressed we have already booked again for next year. The Hotel is located on the small island of Kolochep, the only hotel on a wonderfully quiet and beautiful island.

We spent a week on this lovely island in August. The coach ride from the airport was amazing to start with. The holiday was made more special because the hotel was on an island and we enjoyed a scenic boat ride to our destination. Our luggage was all transferred for us directly to our rooms. Our room was smartly decorated and was cleaned everyday. All of the guests were housed in several villas and we could just about see the sea from our window.

What can I say - what a fantastic and chill out resort overlooking the bay. Probably one of the nicest hotels I have ever stayed in. All the staff in the resort were wonderful especially Tania in the outside bar looking after the late drinkers. No problem getting beds around the pool or the beach. My favourite al a Carte was the Culinarium in the bay just a short walk away. Entertainment was low key but very enjoyable. A fabulous hotel to stay after a Thomson cruise in the Adriatic. All t...

This was our second visit and were disappointed that the hotel could not grant our request made when booking for a ground floor suite as the site is on a hillside.

This place has the wow factor as you pull into the bay by boat. It's simply stunning. The island is very quiet so if you are looking for R&R then this place is going to be up your street.

We loved our holiday to Kalamota Island; the hotel was great, the waters are crystal clear and it's close enough for a day trip to Dubrovnik (which is a MUST!). The clean water does mean there are lots of sea urchins, so it may be advisable to wear sea shoes when going for a dip. If you go for a walk around the island, be warned there is a nudist beach hidden around the corner from the hotel; though this may be your thing, so enjoy if it is! Could make for some interesting snorkeling in the sea... Read more

Straight through passport control and our bags were waiting for us. We booked a private taxi which was also waiting for us a... Read more

From the outside a lovely clean hotel with polite staff, but we found it hard going. 45 min from main land Dubrovnik so your a bit cut off with one small shop on the complex.
