we booked this hotel to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary on arrriving I politely asked if we could have a nice room with a sea view (we wanted it to be special)we were given a room 6 flights of stairs up to the 3rd floor when we opened the balcony door it was overgrown with trees it was terrible I promptly asked for a room on a lower floor (we are 73 & 72)years old to which the receptionist gave us the cold
treatment all week.as for the food, well, you just picked out the best bits and left the rest, the best was the soup, and the desserts. not suitable for the disabled dozens of steps everywhere you go
not anymore thank you

location good, food terrible,not suitable for disabled
too many steps everywhere,stairs up to rooms, no lifts
can be very hard on the elderly,too many trees blocking stunning views from balconies, shame,when you
have made the long arduous journey from the airport the last thing you want is to climb 6 flights of stairs to your room, with trees overtaking the balcony
not a very good view at all.this hotel could benefit
from massive refurbishment to make it acceptable for a good holiday, we book our holiday in good faith over here not knowing what to expect and I think we deserve better treatment and value for our hard earned
money rooms are like rabbit hutches

The good point is the location, which is excellent - a short taxi boat or a twenty five minute walk into the very pretty town of Korcula.

We booked a hotel room (half board) but changed to an apartment on day two, as the hotel room was small for three of us (two adults plus seven year old). Apartment was adequate.

Food in restaurant was terrible! The restaurant staff were very nice, but they were embarrassed by the quality of what they had to serve. It was frustrating because in Korcula town we found several nice restaurants. Last year we stayed at the Kompas in Dubrovnik (also a 3 star hotel) where the food was excellent, but the Bon Repos (also 3 star) was appalling.

The best beach was at Lumbarda which was a 5 minute bus ride from the Bon Repos - well worth the trip since the beaches at the Bon Repos were very small and not very sandy.

Apparently the Bon Repos is still state owned and the state hasn't invested in it for years, as they are hoping to sell it off - hopefully they will, because it needs new management - with a facelift and a new chef it could be pleasant, but for the moment its best avoided.

Korcula is a pretty island, and worth a visit - but I recommend you go self-catering!

We stayed in Bon Repos for two week,there was no air conditioning, we couldn't even hire a fan as the hotel did not provide that service.

The food was just terrible, at breakfast food was left uncovered, with flies everywhere. Staff handled bread and other food without any gloves on.

Dinner in the evenings was appalling, all dinners were covered in gravy/sauce, whether you liked it or not, and I mean covered, portions were small, and the food was overcooked and luke-warm when served.

I would not recommend this hotel, and I will not be returning.

Good things about Croatia were the scenery and the weather, occasionally we met someone who was friendly.
I found you had to pay for all services for example the tennis court, I had to pay to hire the tennis raquet, I thought this very mean as there is very little to amuse young people on this resort.

All facilities were very shabby, tennis court, volley ball area and crazy golf course.

To travel from Bon Repos to Korcula you have to go by bus or boat. It costs 10 Kuna (one pound sterling) each way per person, which adds up over two weeks. Korcula is a very nice place, we enjoyed looking around that town, but again we found it difficult to find somewhere good to eat.
