Booking.com Guest Review GuidelinesTo keep the rating score and review content relevant for your upcoming trip, we archive reviews older than 24 months.
Only a customer who has booked through Booking.com and stayed at the property in question can write a review. This allows us to verify that our reviews come from real guests like you. Who better to tell others about the free breakfast, friendly staff, or their comfortable room than someone who’s stayed at the property?
We want you to share your story, with both the good and the not-so-good. All we ask is that you follow a few simple guidelines.
We believe review contributions and property responses will highlight a wide range of opinions and experiences, which is critical in helping guests make informed decisions about where to stay.
Contributions to Booking.com are a reflection of the dedication of our guests and properties, so we treat them with the utmost respect.
Whether negative or positive, we'll post every comment in full and as quickly as possible, provided the guidelines are met. We'll also provide transparency over the status of submitted content.
We'll use the same guidelines and standards for all user-generated content, and for the property responses to that content.
We'll allow the contributions to speak for themselves, and we won’t be the judge of reality. Booking.com’s role is to be a feedback distributor for both guests and properties.
Guidelines and Standards for Reviews
These guidelines and standards aim to keep the content on Booking.com relevant and family-friendly, without limiting expression or strong opinions. They're also applicable regardless of the comment's tone.
Contributions should be travel related. The most helpful contributions are detailed and help others make better decisions. Please don’t include personal, political, ethical, or religious commentary. Promotional content will be removed and issues concerning Booking.com’s services should be routed to our Customer Service or Accommodation Service teams.
Contributions should be appropriate for a global audience. Please avoid using profanity or attempts to approximate profanity with creative spelling, in any language. Comments and media that include hate speech, discriminatory remarks, threats, sexually explicit remarks, violence, or the promotion of illegal activity are not permitted.
All content should be genuine and unique to the guest. Reviews are most valuable when they are original and unbiased. Your contribution should be yours. Booking.com property partners should not post on behalf of guests or offer incentives in exchange for reviews. Attempts to bring down the rating of a competitor by submitting a negative review will not be tolerated.
Respect the privacy of others. Booking.com will make an effort to obscure email addresses, telephone numbers, website addresses, social media accounts, and other similar details.
The opinions expressed in contributions are those of Booking.com customers and properties, and not of Booking.com. Booking.com does not accept responsibility or liability for any reviews or responses. Booking.com is a distributor (without any obligation to verify) and not a publisher of these comments and responses.

눉A kettle in the kitchenette would have been really useful.
눇Fantastic view of the sunset from the balcony. The owner and his wife were extremely helpful and friendly and the food, both breakfast and dinner was excellent. They were also able to tell us about local places and quiet bays worth visiting.
September 13, 2016
눉Our room was very small - which is not a problem, but it does not give the level of comfort you would expect for the price (€80 per night). Also, throughout our 3-night stay the staff kept reminding us about the check-out time, which made us feel unappreciated.
눇The location is beautiful, in the middle of the trees on the opposite side of Vela Luka. It literally took us 45 seconds to get from our bed to the sea.
September 3, 2016
눉couldn't seem to adjust the air conditioning in the room. it was either full blast which was too cold for sleeping or off which left the room too hot
눇very quiet. exactly what was needed to recharge the batteries for a few nights
August 26, 2016
눉The extra bed we'd requested was the sofa which had broken, so couldn't be be opened out. The evening meal we stayed in for on night was not very good.
눇The villa was beautiful and in a lovely location, so you could walk down to the water and swim in the crystal clear, warm sea. We loved the balcony where we could sit out with a glass of wine watching the gorgeous sunsets.
August 26, 2016
눉- we requested double bed and got twin beds put next to each other - shower only had cold water, 2 days in a row - No room cleaning/towel replacement during our stay - poor breakfast at set time
눇The building looks new and is clean Parking
August 10, 2016
눉the bed was unconfortable the room was tiny and ugly there was no dockingstation in the bathroom the bathroom was too small and nit very beautiful lots if insects outside and in the room too expensive for what was offered wouldn't recommend it to anyone!
눇the female host was very nice and the breakfast she offered was also ok
July 21, 2016
눉the room itself was not that nice. The interior decoration was poor and the furniture impractical. Kitchen equipment was poor. It's not really possible to cook food and the stove was broken. It took forever to boil water. Very bad value for money.
눇The place was very beautiful from the outside. The balcony was huge with a lovely view.
July 14, 2016
눉Everything was o.k. for us, maybe I would miss some kitchen appliencies if I cooked by myself, but it is so much easier to choose from the house menu and eat at the lovely terrace of the hotel.
눇Good location, just a few steps from the sea. If you take a taxi boat at the nearby hotel, you are in the centre of the town in 5 minutes. The owners are very nice, the lady cooked us a delicious dinner. A lot of room in the appartment on the first floor and a beautiful view from the balcony.
July 10, 2016
눉Small room Small bed Uncomfortable bed Dirty room Strict breakfast time! Hotel location Room location Insects and flies City tax ( I stayed 7 different cities before there and they never charged me city tax except this hotel )
July 3, 2016
눉Stayed in the economy room and the bed was extremely uncomfortable, very hard. There was a taxi boat to the main town area with bars and restaurants but this stopped at 9.30 and the walk back was about half an hour and very dark and quiet. There were a lot of wood louse outside the apartment in the evenings which meant sitting out wasn't very pleasant.
눇Helpful hosts. Had a delicious meal at the villa. Close to a beach, swimming areas and a quiet beach bar.
May 20, 2016
눉Everything was as described. Nothing we didn't like
눇The couple that runs the place gave us plenty of useful information about Vela Luka and great insight on how to get around the island. They were very helpful throughout our stay. The view of Vela Luka bay in the early morning while you are having your breakfast on the terace is remarkable. Our apartment was very clean and had plenty of sunlight.Prices are good. We'll be back!
August 24, 2015
눉The stove did not work and we had to ask the staff to boil us water etc. Also there were some minor things like broken cabinet handles... Wifi was a bit weak.
눇We were in the comfort apartment which was spacious and clean, with a nice view to the sea. The staff was nice.
August 17, 2015
눉Room was a bit musty smelling (one of the downstairs rooms) but not a major. Disappointed when the host offered to do our washing and then charged us a ridiculous amount on check out for it.
눇Lovely location very close to swim area and a short drive to town. Breakfast was lovely on the patio.
August 18, 2016
눉We were in a little bunker. It is a little far from the center and hard to find. I find the price expensive for the quality.
August 9, 2016
눉A bit far away from the restaurants
눇Staff was really friendly
July 28, 2016
눇Great location and super friendly hosts!
July 3, 2016
눇Around the bay from the town, but a walking distance away. Amazing rocky beaches nearby and lovely staff
September 21, 2015
눇The view from the patio outside our room and the shade of the trees in the garden
September 11, 2015
눇Everything perfect, nice owners, beautiful place! :)
August 18, 2015
눉There is very poor wifi if you are on the top floor,you have to go out to the stairs to get any at all ,so it shouldn't be advertised as wifi.

눉very small room, no closet, baddish breakfest
눇pleasant taras without see view
June 18, 2015
눇Location, close to the shore, television set that connects to your smartphone
September 13, 2014
눉So awful bed that we could not sleep more than a few hours per day. Tv is so small that you can barely see from the bed and it is almost all german language programmes. Wi fi was working only in corridor and not in bedroom or balcony
눇Location, balcony and rocky beach 20m from the house
September 4, 2014
눇Mario and Irena are very welcoming. Irena is a wonderful cook. The view is beautiful. They produce their own olive oil which is delicious. It is a 20 minute, very nice walk to the old town. Very quiet, calm and you can find lovely spots for swimming. I highly recommend!
August 28, 2014
눉'Sea' had no facility although direct access
눇We ate at the villa and had a truly great dinner, good quality and fresh fish. Great taste! Direct access sea. Nice view top apartments
August 27, 2014
눉most services are rather insufficient and are not worth the money (breakfast; wi-fi; bed sheets; toiletries; restaurant; stairs...); the staff tries to make the money with the less service and is rather rather rigid about what it offers; if you stay more than a couple of days you end up feeling exploited.
눇the location is nice; the apartment is spacious.
August 24, 2014
눉Take mask and / or waterproof shoes as urchins can make water exit somewhat perilous. Wifi never worked but we decided to enjoy that rather than complain so I don't know if it could have been better. I've slept in comfier beds but being pregnant I'm more sensitive to that than usual!
눇Lovely villa and a warm welcome! Balcony has a great view and is well placed to watch boats come and go. A footpath just behind the house goes west further down the point and east into town and reveals many beautiful, secluded rocks to swim from and a few beaches for easier water access. The water is enticingly clear. We had dinner one evening at the villa and the food was fresh and delicious. Room was clean and spacious albeit pretty basic in terms of decor.
August 13, 2014
눉Breakfast was a bit poor. Our room was nice but our bathroom was very smelly as if there was a problem with drainage pipes. There was also quite a lot of bugs crawling on the floor at night which I guess could be some how prevented. No beach anywhere near the hotel.
눇The little patios that each room had, very close to the sea.
August 10, 2014
눉The double bed in the apartment we stayed in wasn't the most comfortable. A new mattress would fix it. Watch out for the sea urchins as you jump into the sea! Take reef walkers! The wifi was unreliable, but this didn't stop us from enjoying our stay.
눇A great spot in Vela Luka within walking distance of a beach bar and the sea. It's also only a short water taxi trip to Vela Luka town. The apartment we had was very spacious and the kitchen facilities were of a good standard although we missed a kettle! We had our own terrace with lovely views of the inlet and enjoyed watching the boats coming and going. The owners were very friendly, and were able to arrange us a taxi to the Ferry terminal for a day trip to Hvar. They can also provide breakfast or dinner if requested. We ate with them twice and the meal was good.
August 10, 2014
눉Internal facilities are far from expected quality. WiFi is working only occasionally.Kitchen although quite spacious has such limited equipment that you should be a magician to cook yourself any serious meal.(could be intentionally since they are offering their restaurant). In the toilet there is no space to put even a toothbrush and same problem in the living room. There is no furniture to put your things in.
눇External look of the villa and location.Staff were very friendly.
August 7, 2014
눉Could have been more information about where to swim safely and the dangers lurking in the beautiful crystal clear water:(
눇Hosts were fantastic and above expectations! Beautiful position and easy access to the town centre via water taxi. Air con was great and so was WiFi. Good breakfast and very punctual.
August 4, 2014
눉The beds made some noise when moving and the WI-FI was unstable for us. Apart from these things, everything was great. Just be aware that there are many sea urchins if you want to jump into the water just below the villa. With proper footwear, it is however still manageable.
눇Amazing balcony. Great view. All the equipment needed is there. Good parking facilities. Friendly host.
July 16, 2014
눉Our room was like a hovel. Tiny, smelt of sewage, nowhere to hang things, full of wood lice, bugs. Barely a one star. I think however (not that I saw them) that the other rooms/apartments are very nice. It's just that the economy double room (the only one left when we booked - but we went for it because it is marketed as a three star so thought it would be ok) is not acceptable at all. The owners were helpful - went to buy a new fan for the bathroom as it didn't work, bought an airfreshener to try to hide the smell - but we had to leave.
눇The location was ok and the breakfast was reasonable.
June 16, 2014
눉-The location in the B.com map was not so clear and we needed to call them to find the place. -Maybe a small kitchen but had a small fridge that is ok. - A/C was a little old an very noisy.
눇Amazing views and quite place, perfect for relaxing. Location: You can take a taxiboat for 3 HRK and be at the center of the village, specially if is a really warm day, you can either walk. :) Room space: Big nice flat. Bed: Big enough and comfortable. Bathroom: Good and clean. View: Amazing view to the see and stairs to go down to a path though the woods to the closet beach. Owner: Everyone was very kind and helpful. Supermarket: No supermarket close as is a residential area but you can go down the hill to the village. Recommend: I would definitely recommended Villa Telenta.
May 26, 2014
눇Excellent service, very clean, peaceful and beautiful. If you want to enjoy sea and sunshine this is the place to go. About 20 min walk from the centre of Vela Luka, but it is worth the walk, the property is beautiful and the owner is a very kind person, he even offered to use his own car to take us to the bus stop to Dubrovnik at 5am. Overall an excellent experience.
September 11, 2014
눇fantastic place and excellent holiday location. Excellent host.
July 27, 2014
눇A little oasis. Host very attentive. Beautiful terraces down to sea, with spectacular views
July 24, 2014
눉Olive trees obscured view of sea.
눇Good home cooking.
