I reviewed this hotel on 9th July last year, after one night's stay. I do so again after six nights' stay. Everything I said before holds good.
We stayed on the top floor in room 304 which has glorious views over the village and the church. Every morning we heard the church bells and other village activity. A walk out of the hotel's front door, and the still waters of the sea are visible, enclosed by mountain views.
The buffet breakfast is abundant, sightly short of excellent, but very good nevertheless. You can easily carry your selection outdoors or eat inside. We were usually down first thing, at seven o'clock and spent a relaxing hour over breakfast and coffee.
The hotel is simply-built and blends with the village architecture and style. The interior is elegant and appealing in its tasteful simplicity and colours. The beds are firm and everything is clean and well-painted. The en suite toilet and showers are kept immaculately by the staff.
You can travel to and from the hotel on Jadrolinija's ferry service to Suđurađ, with connecting bus, or direct to Sipanska Luka by G&V Line. When arriving and departing, I think the hotel will also arrange, for a fee, a private transfer if necessary to and from the airport.
WiFi is excellent, but not on the top floor where the signal is a little weak. However I usually accessed the Internet on my phone in the lounge-reading room, just off the entrance hall. I was very happy with this.
