Villa Lanterna

Reviewed 21 May 2010

We arrived at our Villa after 30 hours travelling time, completely exhausted. To be welcomed so warmly and with genuine enthusiasm was such a relief. Robert carried our two suitcases up 3 steep flights of steps to our room and what a room it was!!! We were expecting (as is often the case) that arriving late would result in the worst room in the complex, but the room I booked and had only viewed online was better than expected. The view from our balcony was breath taking. The kitchen stayed open to feed us and we felt very welcomed.
There is a shuttle service to Dubrovnik and the shops around 4 times per day, even picking us up at midnight after dinner. Breakfast is not continental it is a cooked breakfast to order, with many choices. The people who run this establishment cannot do enough for you, whether driving you around, giving you language lessons, directions to anywhere and even finding hard to procure items. This is a much more economical option than staying in Dubrovnik central as the free shuttle service enables you to stay in a beautiful location out of town (3.5km) without being inconvenienced.
Thank you to the wonderful staff (Ivana, Robert and Vlako apologies not sure of the spelling) who made us not want to leave this beautiful city. I would recommend this to anyone who is visiting Dubrovnik it was an amazing experience and one I will cherish.

My husband and I spent the most wonderful week at this beautiful destination in September and couldn't agree more with all the previous reviews. The accommodation is everything you could ask for and the staff, Ivana, Robert, Darco and Rose are the most pleasant, friendly and helpful I have ever come across. Nothing is too much trouble to them.

You will definitely not be disappointed if you choose this location. I wiil definitely be back.

The apartments and staff are wonderful. We enjoyed staying here; everything was spotless with wonderful staff who really went the extra mile to make sure we all had a fantastic holiday. The bus to Dubrovnik and the daily trips to the supermarket were a great reliable, door to door service. The bay is perfect, quite with a couple of tavernas, and a few sun beds. We would recommend hiring a speed boat which will come right to the harbour wall to collect you and take you on an amazing trip around the coast line and to some small islands. Stunning scenery, helpful, friendly people and the food was very good too.

We have just returned after spending two weeks at Villa Lanterna.
The location is really splendid situated in the Bay of Zaton and two minutes from a swim in the Adriatic. (do bring swimming shoes!)
The accommodation is attractive, clean and well run by the small staff.
The hard working staff are a pleasure to deal with and all previous reports cover this well.
Ivana, Robert and Darco have all been rightly mentioned in reviews - they are wonderful but I must mention Rose the chef who produced the most wonderful meals for us during our two weeks there.
We were fortunate to have some excellent company in our first week which is a matter of pure chance!
I would certainly reccommend this to future travellers.

Stayed here with my girlfriend in the last week of Sept. 09. Stikovica is a lovely, unspoilt little village with a nice but rocky/pebbly beach. The beach bar/grill is great and reasonably priced with excellent seafood. The hotel itself is spotless but the greatest plus point for it are the wonderful & helpful staff. Nothing was too much trouble for them & their service was prompt with a smile. I cannot praise them enough.
This is not Ibiza but if you want unspoilt beauty, nice food & relaxation try Stikovica.
The hotel also does helpful runs in to/back from Dubrovnik 3 times a day each way for just 3 Euros via their own minibus. The minibus can also be used free of charge to the local minimart each day at 10.30 a.m.
