Overall this we had a really pleasant holiday, once we had arrived and installed ourselves. Initially it was somewhat hair-raising - the directions from the airport were minimal and misleading, instructing us to follow signs to makarska, which dont exist (follow the signs to Dubrovnik instead). Once we had arrived there was no-one there to meet us and I didnt even know which apartment we were supposed to be staying in. After phoning the number Id been given by the owner (slightly begrudgingly I might add), someone did turn up and practically threw the keys at us in the carpark. I said we didnt know which apartment it was and she then did go and open the door for us... Except there was a problem with the lock and she couldnt open it. After a few minutes of fiddling she eventually opened it and ran off. We then had similarly problems with the lock ourselves, until eventually we worked out the knack. Some prior warning and explanation of this would have been good. I also felt that some kind of welcome information would have been helpful - what to do in an emergency, contact number, places to visit, etc..
Despite this initial hiccup, the apartment itself is clean, quiet, private and functional, set back from a quiet residential street. Sitting out on the balcony in the evening, watching the neighbours come and go was really relaxing, and the atmosphere of the place was gentle and friendly.
The apartment has everything you need (apart from a cafetiere so we got used to turkish coffee) I think the double bed is possibly the most comfortable I have ever slept in!
As with previous reviewers we took to walking towards baska voda to find quieter spots, although we often found ourselves amongst naturists, much to the chagrin of my children! The beaches are really clean and well managed, perfect for children, great for snorkelling, although sea shoes are a must for the rocks and to avoid sea urchin spines..
We hired a car, which allowed us to explore the mountains and along the coast a bit, which was really useful as there is loads to see in the surrounding area.
On the whole, this is a lovely place, and if it wasnt for the frosty and unhelpful reception, Id give it 10/10.
