    Swimming pool (final reason to choose this particular object) was unable to use cause water temperature! Big disappointment! Air conditioning in corridor instead in room - really??

    Pretty tarrace view, comfortable bed, object appear more luxurius as cheap ones.

    Great place to stay if you have a car or a scooter. We hired a scooter from town which was great and saw the whole island. If you are walking or riding you will increase your fitness while staying there

    Staff happy to help. Filip was very accomodating.

    Too many stairs to the accomodation restaurant, not good for small kids.

    Several little pools in front of apartment houses is what we really enjoyed, inspite beautiful beaches and sea 100m away of the accomodation.

    Filip was extremely helpful and friendly and made us feel very welcome, he met us off the ferry and there was no charge to drive us to our apartment which was appreciated. The accommodation was well equipped, the views beautiful, and a great beach in easy walking distance. We would particularly recommend Tara Lodge on the beach - turn left from Villa Costello - excellent food, bean bag sunbeds available, with a book swap, snorkeling equipment provided for people to borrow and paddle boards to hire. If you turn right you get to another great beach, with a little shack, open till 2200 hours with very cheap drinks! Korcula is an easy taxi ride away and really stunning.

    Lovely villa in a peaceful part of korcula, perfect for a couple of days stay. Great to have access to two pools as well.

    We rented the 6 bed apartment with a fantastic large terrace overlooking the valley and the sea further away. Perfect for sunset drinks. Modern apartment with 3 bathrooms. The host collected us at the ferry port. The main pool was not so big but deep. And the smaller one was open also at night which was nice. 150/250 m walk to two local pebble peaches in nice bays and a well equipped smaller grocery store. 3 restaurants in the area including the hotel itself. We tried the traditional agricultural styled one at one of the beaches which was rustic but very nice. At the closest beach there is a small beach bar with coffee and drinks and small hamburgers. It is a lovely but silent place and if you bring teenagers it could be regarded as far away to Korcula old town. However easy to reach for 80-90 Kuna taxi ride. We were two family's of 8 and got a big taxi for this price.

    not much really, quite a few steps up to the apartments but good holiday exercise...there is a car park at the rear so steps can be avoided if necessary.

    we wanted a quiet holiday away from the tourist hub so location was great for us. Host arranged transport for us to & from the ferry terminal so no issues there. Two swimming areas close by, well stocked general store close by & bus stop in easy walking distance .

    The WIFI did not work well in the room. There is no tourist infrastructure close to the property so that one always has to go to korcula town (4 km). However, free bikes are provided.

    Very nice hideaway close to a charming bay. Despite being fairly big villa castello still has a nice family feel. Staff is very friendly and helpfull. They picked us up at the port upon arrival and got us there on departure.

    Although clean, a few minor things in the apartment could have been maintained better.

    Lovely surroundings, very calm and with nice views. Two pools which are well maintained. Quality of the food in the restaurant is very high, along the best we had in Croatia. Friendly and helpful staff!

    Great location, and it's really quiet and beautiful. There aren't too many tourists and it is very close to Korčula town. When you park, there is no need to drive again. You have a store and a restaurant right there. All in all, excellent staff and apartments. I reccomend it if you want some peace and quiet in nature, with all the comforts of modern life.

    Some bikes were locked up by other guests the idea is get bikes use them give keys back it appears some guests locked bikes for own use and I could not go out one day with others as all bikes were too big but smaller bikes locked up for days and not used nog fault of villa really just . selfish people Would be good if accommodation could have info on ferries. Was told upper level pool was for top 3 apartments but everyone seemed to use it and not the larger one it wax not really a pool big enough for children with inflatables more a cool off pool Probably not so good for less mobile due to steps

    It's possible to stay here without a car, but to get further than the pool or the beach, the small local supermarket or the nearest restaurants, be prepared to walk a few kms, cycle or take a taxi. Bus service is infrequent. The rooms could do with a little cosmetic finishing up (paintwork, fixing a broken lamp etc.), but that didn't really detract from our enjoyment of the stay.

    Most of the staff were very welcoming, with useful advice on the area, collecting us from Korcula (it's about 4km from the main town) and friendly waitresses in the restaurant. The location is great, quiet and about 150 metres from two good swimming beaches; in addition there are two pools onsite. Bikes were available to cycle to Korcula town. Food in the restaurant is uncomplicated local and tasty, especially the seafood, and there are other restaurants nearby for variation. The selfcatering facilities were good.

    Room cleaning costs extra (except for clean towels and bedsheets), which we found unusual but not disastrous. Owner's demeanour made us feel a little uncomfortable but we didn't take it personally.
