The hotel is only a 30 minute drive from Dubrovnik airport, which after a long flight is exactly what you want. The hotel is in a great location, 15 minutes from the old town and it has its own private beach. We came for our anniversary and our room was upgraded by the hotel which really made our stay more special! Jasmina who worked at the reception was so helpful and even just as exited as us to be celebrating our anniversary. The staff tended to all of our needs and we had sweet surprises like roses on the bed and roses given to us at dinner! There is evening entertainment like live music every night after dinner, which is always truly enjoyable. I recommend their restaurant which is on the beach for dinner, Miramare. The food was delicious and if you go at the right time you can see the sun set and it’s very romantic.
Because of COVID to have your room cleaned you need to call reception and ask, which is not a problem it is very easy to do. Room service is 24/7 and all staff are easy to communicate with.
Overall, I genuinely have no complaints. It was wonderful and friendly service. Standard evening entertainment within the hotel and if that’s not enough for you, the old town is just next door.
Thank you for the lovely stay, we will see you in the future!

We have just returned from our first holiday after many cancellations last year due to covid. The hotel is not the prettiest to look at from outside but nicely decorated and modern internally. We stayed in a premium room on the 8th floor which was large and had lots of storage space which is quite rare in hotels. The bathroom is large with a modern bath, two sinks, separate shower cubicle and toilet cubicle - nice, modern and clean. The toiletries were a let down, big (presumably) reusable/refilled shower gel, not what is expected for a 5 star. It overlooked the swimming pool with fabulous views out to the sea too, very clean, maid was good and cleaned the room each day without us seeing her. V level was not available for us to pay for and in the end we decided this would have been a waste of money as the breakfast in the main restaurant was very good, catering to every taste. We did not like the beach area, far too crowded so opted for the calmer pool area when we did take a rest, we always found a lounger at any time of the day. There is a nice promenade down to Lapad, we did not like Lapad area it was a bit tacky in our opinion, there are restaurants there but we didn't go down there again. The promenade has a few restaurants at the top end from the hotel which are lovely. The promenade also allows for quiet areas to sit/sunbathe on the rocks and enter the sea, there are plenty of benches dotted around too. Such a lovely way to get some seclusion and go in the sea, much better than the general beach area we thought, but you do have to be able to navigate around the big rocks and would need good beach shoes as it can be slippery going into the water. The water is crystal clear, so gorgeous. We ate in the bar area on two nights and the food was lovely. Dubrovnik old town was fantastic, we ate in there 3 nights and really anywhere you choose there would be great food we think. The walk around the walls was great. We found every member of staff at the hotel to be very friendly and helpful and they all wore their face masks constantly. The hotel also has an antigen test arrangement for return to the UK which was very helpful. The breakfast was buffet and you had to wear your mask to walk around, helping yourself to the food which did seem odd to be doing again, but plenty of sanitisers around everywhere, to be honest we didn't see anyone use them, but we sanitised once we got back to the table, it's just the strange time we live in now but it did build our confidence back up, everyone seemed respectful of the rules. We rented our own small boat for a day 250euros but worth it, we found some lovely secluded areas to park the boat and swim or eat lunch. All in all a lovely break for my husband and I to escape the last year and a half of missed anniversaries. We would now like to explore other areas in Croatia as it is so beautiful.

We had the most amazing time at the President Hotel. We recently visited from the UK and we’re so glad we did. The hotel is super clean with precautionary signage and sanitiser available everywhere. Staff are all in PPE and we felt very safe throughout, they really have taken all the measures you could hope for to make your stay enjoyable. We could completely switch off from the stress of the world right now and just enjoy our beautiful surroundings in comfort.

The hotel is in a stunning location looking out to the sea with views of Kolocep Island and the coastline, it's so nice to hear the waves from your room all day long! The hotel has all the facilities you could want, the really generous and wide ranging Breakfast was great too as was the lunch we had from the Piano Bar. There was a bottle of wine and a nice fruit platter waiting in the room upon arrival which was a nice touch.

The staff are amazing, really friendly and helpful. Included in our booking was a hassle-free transfer from the airport which was really appreciated. We’d like to make a special mention to Arijan and Ozana who made sure we had a great room and helped us with some nice recommendations for dinner/drinks. Thank you for giving us a really memorable stay.

Access to the Old Town is really easy, there is a bus stop outside that gets you there in 10 mins and costs about £1.80 although you can walk along the well kept coastal promenade if you wanted drinks/food closer to the hotel.

We’re very sad to be leaving but if we ever come back to Dubrovnik, this will be the first place we’ll book to stay. Wish we could stay longer, thank you!

Stayed here last week and loved it.... The hotel has many amenities, including large Indoor and outdoor pools, a well being centre (massages..etc), two small but adequate gym rooms, and it's own pebbled beach area. There is a piano bar and terraced area, which had different music entertainment every night, as well as a beach bar. There is a main buffet restaurant with table service for drinks, with indoor and large outdoor terraced area, which we thought served a large range of very good quality food; and also a beach side restaurant. Beach towels are provided free as are all sunbeds on the beach, you just have to show your room card. You can also pay a little more to be a V-Guest which has it's own VIP restaurant, beach area and Jacuzzi suites. We booked direct with the hotel on a B&B basis, and was up graded to a superior room with very large balcony, Half-board basis and got taxi airport transfers and a drinks voucher; so i would suggest giving them a call direct.Our room was very clean, spacious with Queens bed and separate sofa and chair area; and very modern. All staff were polite, helpful and smiled constantly; even the general cleaners were very courteous. Dubrovnik itself is beautiful and although the hotel is scenic 15-20 mins walk along the promenade to the main bar and restaurant areas, the Old town can be reached by the Bus stop directly outside the hotel in 12 mins. Cost is around £1.80 each way, and covers you for 1 hour, but if you buy a 24 hour ticket from a ticket office, this is only £3.60 each, and can be used as many times as you want.

We travelled to Dubrovnik for our friends wedding and got upgraded to the valamar president due to our original hotel valamar club being closed this season due to covid, on arrival we were greeted with concierge to collect our luggage and then a welcome drink while waiting to check in, my first impressions were just wow the hotel is situated on a peninsula and every room had an amazing view of the Adriatic Sea, we settled in our room which was more than enough for me my husband and 13 year old son, huge king size plus bed and very comfortable sofa bed for my son, the balcony had the added extras of 2 sun loungers and table and chairs where you could relax and catch the last sun of the day if needed, we made our way down for lunch which had lots of choice from fish dishes and lots of meat but sadly not much for my picky eating son , no chips pizza or burgers which would’ve gone down great with the other few kiddies who travelled with us, we were full board and our only drink was available with our meals only, we then had to buy any others ourselves which didn’t come cheap a pint alone was £6.50, we would walk to the local shop and just stick up on local beer and water which luckily the fridge in our room kept them cold enough.
2 pools indoor and outdoor kept the children entertained and there were more than enough sun beds for all of us, With fresh towels available daily.
It’s a beautiful hotel and the sunsets and piano player in the evenings are just perfect, my only moan is the food choice and drinks when you pay full board and a few thousand to stay in a hotel you should be allowed more than 1 drink With your meal, I feel they mislead the full board option with not enough information.
The staff were fantastic the dining room staff were chatty and so polite and they work tirelessly to keep everything running smoothly through this pandemic, hand sanitizers were everywhere and they were cleaning constantly, I for one would definitely go back to Dubrovnik as it’s just so beautiful and there is so much to see and do, we went out most evenings to the local bar and caught the bus to the local town and the old town which had enough bars and restaurants to keep you entertained throughout your stay.

Our vacation at Valamar Collection Dubrovnik President Hotel ***** V Level make our eleven days stay memorable and has been absolutely amazing. Our deluxe room on sixth floor was really big, modern and very clean with a beautiful view over the sea and Elafiti Islands.
The hotel is adapted to the new circumstances for the current situation for Covid-19 and there are hand sanitizers on every corner, many cleaning cycles and enough space to keep distance to each other so we felt completely carefree and safe all the time.
The staff was incredibly kind and always ready to bring everything we asked for, especially in the first class restaurant Momenti. We tasted the very best of the local and international cuisine and we had amazing experience with our favorite staff members Miss. Marlena and Mr. Marko who made our stay unforgettable. Everyone we've encountered was pleasant, ready to help and warmheartedly welcomed us.
With reserved sun loungers on exclusive areas on the beautiful hotel pool and the beach with fresh towels throughout the day the V-Level is just what we need. We enjoyed in sparkling vine during the Bubbly hour every day at V level lounge Ruda.
I highly recommend a visit at Valamar Collection Dubrovnik President Hotel ***** V Level.
Just need to come and enjoy. Will recommend this to everyone!

We had a great stay at the Valamar President Hotel. The location is simply stunning with amazing views, fantastic beach and overall good service. The food in the restaurant is great quality and there is plenty of space and easy access to the old town via a bus that stops right outside the hotel. Honestly the views from the pool, beach and outside bar are incredible.
As a family of 5, with older children, we opted for 2 rooms, one at the pricier end (V Level) and one standard room. The V level room was beautiful, super spacious with a balcony, seating area, large bed and huge bathroom. The kids room was considerable lower quality, with quite a dated hallway, room looked like it needed some TLC, smelt a bit musty and overall way different to ours (the luxury of being the parents !). This didnt really create an issue but I think that the hotel should consider ensuring the similar standard continues throughout. Smaller / bigger rooms of course are usual, but for the hotel to retain its top standard, they must do some renovation on those areas, to keep everytthing looking as good as the lobby.
Breakfast was excellent. SUPER busy, so advise going earlier in Summer months. the wasps outside were a real issue so annoyingly we had to sit inside, but buffet choice was huge and really great quality.
We spent some time with the concierge service, feeding back our thoughts about the V LEVEL which is a sort of VIP access, giving extras like, fruit in the room, smoothies at midday, a dedicated area on the beach, free water etc, but I feel like they could make a lot more of that. Ensure its really something that people are willing to pay for. From memory we didnt pay a lot more and I would say its worth it, but still think they should make it more known and ensure the 'lounge' area is somewhere people want to go and thus want to pay for the VIP level. Currently the lounge is very dull meeting room which doesnt cut it really.
Overall I would recommend the hotel for the location, food quality, views and beach. I would however strongly recommend being sure of what room you are getting and where it is (And whether it has been renovated or not).
one other thing. this is NOT a hotel for anyone with accessiblity needs. There are hundreds of steps everywhere, of course there are lifts too, but because of its location stepped down (as you will see in the photos) I really would only suggest this area if you are able to walk comfortably up and down stairs. We enjoyed that, as gave us chance to exercise (!) but to be considered for older / less mobile visitors.

We just returned from a holiday at The Valamar President and cannot praise the hotel more highly. The location with views over the bay, a beach and just 15 mins in a taxi to the old town is perfect. We will always remember the beautiful sunsets from the restaurant and bar terraces and from our own room. The hotel coped very well with Covid measures with hand sanitiser everywhere and sensible social distancing measures which were not so restrictive as to impact on the enjoyment of the holiday. The pool is beautiful and, as numbers were down slightly due to Covid, was rarely too busy. Food is excellent and varied, the gym is great and the staff are outstanding: friendly, helpful and attentive

First impressions when entering this hotel are fantastic. Sanitsier as you enter, all staff wearing massks (although you don't have to as visitors), welcome drink and fantastic views. However, as we had a morning flight and arrived at the hotel around 11.15am, we were only then told that check in is from 2pm so we would just have to wait. Our tour operator didn't tell us this so it was a bit of a surprise.

Our room was lovely (superior double), with a large balcony and sunloungers and again another stunning view. Just a couple of downsides in the room - pillows were uncomfortable for us, the TV wasn't straight (sounds silly but when the rest of the room is spectacular it really lets it down) and the noise of the jetskis from early morning to late evening gets annoying.

Food in the normal restuarant was lovely, lots of chouce and they are obviosuly getting used to a new way of working with the staff serviing you rather than the normal buffet help yourself.

Drinks are expensive, but we expected that, but the lobby bar and outside terrace are beautiful in the evening.

We ventured into Dubrovnik old town and Lapad for a couple of evenings and used Uber rather than the bus which was reasonably priced, quicker and felt safer with the pandemic. Masks are needed for public transport.

We treated ourselves on our final evening to a meal at the Panorama restaurant which was outstanding. Again we used a taxi rather thsn the cable car. Get up there just before sunset and enjoy the views. Definitly need to book a table though, even currently when it is so quiet.

Overall, a few niggles with the hotel but the views and service definitly make up for. it

The biggest draw for this hotel is the beach. Water is warm and beautifully clear, fantastic for snorkelling with lots of fish and starfish. There isn’t a massive rush for sun beds either in the morning which is a nice change. Great water sports on offer and day trips too. Our room overlooked the beach and we enjoyed beautiful sunsets every night and nice listening to the waves lapping on the shore of a morning. Room was clean, spacious and comfy beds although our teenage kids had twin beds on the other side of the hotel and their room was a bit dated. Breakfast choice was fresh and plentiful and staff work hard to clean tables quickly and everyone was wearing masks which made us feel safer. We ate dinner in the buffet one night which was a good choice but might be repetitive if they don’t change the menu regularly, also a shame that (tap) water isn’t complimentary, if you want water, you have to buy it! All in all a good hotel, great location, comfy rooms, clean and Covid safe. I would recommend this hotel.
