La Fodia Hotel, Croatia

14:29:00

Hello! Yes, i'm still alive! I've just not been very active for a while. If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram ( which I think you should by the way), you will have seen one of my many posts about our holiday at the start of October.

We both had some time booked off work in October, and after searching for months we finally found a lovely hotel for a really good price. We hadn't really considered Croatia as a holiday option but we're so glad we chose it!
We stayed on the remote island Lopud which is about an hours boat ride from Dubrovnik. There's not much to the island with no cars allowed, which was ideal for us as we weren't looking for a busy holiday, more just sitting drinking cocktails in the sun! Like I said, there's not much to the island with the Lafodia hotel being the main attraction. The hotel was AMAZING. We loved absolutely everything about it, and considering what we paid it was an absolute steal. We had a bed and breakfast basis and the breakfast every morning was great - fresh pastries, meats and cheese and a pancake machine. yes, that's right. a pancake machine. wow.

With a cocktail bar, pool bar, beach bar, pizza restaurant, a seafood restaurant (yuck) and an a la carte restaurant, we were never stuck for food or drinks, which is always good in our eyes.
The room was a great size and had a lovely view over the small village and looking out towards the sea. For days when we wanted out of the hotel, we were only a 10-minute walk from the village where there was some lovely wee cafes and restaurants which were great for some lunch and a fancier dinner at night. If you were to visit you would no doubt end up in one of these places but we really loved Restoran Dubrovnik, Mandrac and Obala. The rest of the cafes in the main area were good for a quick bite but I wouldn't say they're the type of places for a nice evening meal.

Being so close to Dubrovnik we decided to get the ferry over and spend a day walking about the old time. It's a really cool wee place, particularly if you're a Game of Thrones fan! IT was so easy to just wander about with no real aim exploring the intricate streets and walking round the city walls!

As we had booked so late and towards the end of the season there were some very minor issues with supplies in the hotel - such as the pool bar running out of beer (excuse me?) and some options on the menu not being available. We didn't really let this get to us though as there was still plenty of options to choose from. Overall the weather was pretty decent, high teens and low twenties in the afternoon but in the morning the weather was horrendous with proper thunderstorms waking you up every day!

We really could not speak more highly of the hotel and it's staff who were all really helpful and we're actually considering going back again during peak season!

Have you been to Croatia? where would you recommend!?
