This smart, comfortable and rather intimate mid-size hotel stands right on Krapanj’s seafront, with views back across the water towards the mainland settlement of Brodarica. Doubles and suites come with hardwood floors, soothing colours, and sepia photos of the island’s sponge divers. About half the rooms have small balconies. A display of sponges and antique pottery in the both the lobby and the spiral staircase point to the island’s fascinating past, and there’s an engaging museum of sponge diving in the basement. Also downstairs are sauna, solarium, gym and small swimming pool with rock-and-pebble beach outside the door.
