Comfortable hotel in glorious LocationPosted Oct 16, 2012
Pros: Discreet in landscape of small island. Location very picturesque. Extensive external lounge/verandah area.
Cons: Limited bar area and indoor lounge facilities.
Location: Location is perfect. Nestled in small picturesque bay surrounded by lush green hillside and glorious clear water.
We visited in second week of October. Season on island had finished at that stage so other restaurants and bars on island had closed. Hotel bar and restaurant were the only places open. However the food in the hotel was good enough and eating there for a week proved to be fine. Very quiet at that time of year but definitely a sense of getting away from it all.

Quiet island beach getawayPosted Oct 13, 2012 on Hotels.com
Only 30 mins by frequent ferry from Dubrovnik. Charming quiet spot by sandy beach. Hotel food only average (lots of half baord) and little other choice nearby, but you can't have everything at these great rates. Two nights is enough.

Haven of calmPosted Oct 6, 2012
Pros: The pool and the feeling of the hotel being part of a friendly small island community. The free wifi is also a real bonus.
Location: Very easy to get to and a quick journey from the airport if you time the ferry sailings right.
The location is perfect - close enough to Dubrovnik, but at the same time, feeling like a remote island hideaway. A great place for untroubled unwinding and relaxation. As well as the hotel, with it's open air restaurant terrace, peaceful swimming pool and private beach, you also have the benefit of being able to walk around the lovely island as well. A hugely relaxing and restful holiday destination, with pleasant and obliging staff.

Clean, comfy, and a beautiful, wonderful island retreat. I will definitely stay again and will recommend Villas Kolocep to family and friends.

Beautiful Island peaceful hotel but lots of stepsPosted Sep 20, 2012
Beautiful Island close to Dubrovnik, cheap and easy to island hop to Lupud, Sipan and back to Dubrovnik. It is the only Hotel on the Island but there are also Villas that can be rented. Even though we travelled just after summer Holidays ( arrived 11th Sept ) One of the Resraurants next to the harbour Villa Lovor was already shut and the Villa Ruza was closed on the thursday and friday due to the weather (thunder storms) and on the Saturday was hosting a wedding, additionally on the days it was open it was only for dinner and they wanted a reservation. Limiting dinning options to the hotel or walk to the other village where we had a lovely lunch at the little beach side restaurant, we were not half board so chose meals from the menu, which were ok, the buffet half board did not appeal, looked and felt like school dinners, breakfast also ok not much fresh fruit and only varient was the vegatables on offer i.e. sprouts, aubergine, broccili, cauliflower.We did go to Villa Ruza on the Sunday and the meal was delicious. One word of warning the hotel is built into the hillside in 8 blocks and there are lots of steps and no lifts, on the night we arrived we were escorted to an appartment in block 5 and on the 3rd floor this was the furthest appartment, fortunately it was only a twin and we had booked a family room I went back to the reception and we were moved immediatley to a room in block 2. Lovely pool and beach to sit around when weather good not much to do when weather bad.

Beautiful Island.Posted Sep 14, 2012
Pros: The hotel isn't expensive and provides what you expect there is an internet connection for people who aren’t willing to relax on holiday.
Cons: The hotel complex is built onto a hill so if you get a room at the top of the complex you may need to do a lot of climbing.
The Hotel is comfortable and clean but it’s the location that really makes this place special. Kolocep island is a beautiful place, which I can't recommend enough. It's a great place to relax either on the beach just in front of the hotel or at the harbour side bar simply watching the fishing boats and ferries come in and out. As Hotel Villas Kolocep is on an island don't forget you need to factor the timetable of the ferry (they show it on the hotels website). It takes a minimum of 30 min to get to port gruz from the airport plus collecting luggage and passport control time so plan your journey otherwise you may have to catch a much more expensive taxi boat (call the hotel and they will send it). This place is worth the extra hassle (Although if you feeling flush you can pre-hire the taxi boat any time of day and not wait for ferries) as it’s certainly among the most pretty islands I've seen.

Great HotelPosted Sep 9, 2012 on Hotels.com
The rooms are in villa blocks seperate from the hotel which was quite nice, we had a wonderful sea view which I never tired of looking out of. Reception and waiting staff were all very helpful and courteous. We dined a couple times in teh evening, once at the buffet and a second time off teh a lacarte menu, both time food was good. Overall a very good hotel to stay at.

Picturesque & peaceful, but.......Posted Sep 3, 2012
Pros: The terrace views
Cons: The food
Location: The location is picturesque, peaceful, fairly close to the busy mainland, but needs some investment to make it perfect.
My husband, son and I have just arrived back from spending one week in Hotel Kolocep. We found the hotel staff very helpful in fulfilling our requests:- We asked for adjoining rooms, facing the bay and then, at the last minute, requested rooms to be fairly accessable, as we were aware that there may be several levels and I had injured my foot. The island was picturesque and peaceful, although we were glad to stay only one week, as it was too quiet for a longer stay. The hotel food was also a bit basic at the best of times - the buffet breakfast was fine, but didnot require broccolli,courgettes or sprouts to be served! Apart from the hotel, there was only 1 taverna, a bar (stick to beer, don't order cocktails) and a small mini market. Also Villa Rusa, which is great, expensive and totally out of place. However, the mainland is only 20 minutes away by ferry, then a quick bus or taxi ride to Dubrovnik. The island of Lopud is about 20 minutes in the opposite direction by ferry and it had quite a bit more to offer in the way of shops, bars and places to eat. The potential for the island is great, a couple of more bars and tavernas, a bit of investment and it would be a real hit!

Great hotel for a familyPosted Aug 28, 2012
Pros: Staff is very helpful and location.
Cons: Breakfast could be improved but that's a minor point.
Location: On the beach, walking distance from the harbour. Stunning views. Great, great, great.
We just came back from a lovely 5 days at Villas Kolocep, What is there not to like? It all starts with a 30 minute boat trip from the port of Dubrovnik on the utterly romantic Postira, a ship straight out of a Tin-tin story. Passengers are being met by hotel staff and luggage will be driven on to the hotel on a golf cart. The hotel is only a 5 minute walk away, along the beach. Staff is really helpful, friendly and make you feel very welcome. The island is small and quiet and coming from London, that's a blessing. There is a lovely restaurant near the port, and another one on the other side of the bay and a 3rd restaurant (a superb fish restaurant, you need to book and the receptionists will phone them for you) half an hour walk away across the island and it's all very idyllic. Our kids loved it. There is a sandy beach, they easily make friends with other kids, there are no cars but you can rent kayaks to peddle to the blue cave or around the island (takes 4 hours). The room is spacious, the beds comfortable and the only cash machine on the island is in the hotel. After 2 days you forget about the rest of the world. We travelled with 2 young kids (age 5 and 8) and they had a great time, they met some other kids, we met their parents. The lobby has a small library of books left behind by other guests. The views are great and with Swiss precision the Postira connects the island with the main land and neighboring islands. We had a great time and planning to go back next year.
