Can you get into hotels for free/pay?

We are staying in private accomodation for 4 evenings as it works out much cheaper. However, can we get into other hotels to sunbathe? Don't mind if have to pay a few pounds. Thanks :)

Thanks for the reply :) Not quite what i was looking for.. sorry should explain further what we are looking for. My husband enjoys a spot of fishing and i'm thinking more if there was a hotel (Neptun etc) that he could fish from the rocks below whilst i sunbathe around the pool? Thanks :):)

Thanks :) Appreciate the reply :)

Just another query as i've been reading quite a bit on Dubrovnik and your name pops up, so you seem tuned into the area :):).. are there any waterfalls/national parks nearby? would love to see Krka or Plitivce but thinking they are both too far out? Any other suggestions? Looking somewhere to take good pictures.

Plitvice Lakes is stunning and is definitely worth a visit. Unfortunately, it is a long way from Dubrovnik. If driving I recommend a overnight stay. Have a look at the following posts :-

May be interested in my photographs as well :-

Hope this helps.

I do not know of any waterfalls near Dubrovnik and Krka and Plitvice are too far out of the way in my opinion. There is a neat waterfall in nearby Herzegovina called Kravice but you would have to cross a border to get here. It would take a couple of hours driving to get there. Not sure that is something you would want to do though.

First you need to find out if your husband needs a fishing license. Next you must contact the hotels and find out if they would allow someone to fish from their area. I find it a bit difficult to believe that it would be possible if they have guests who are swimming in the sea next to someone fishing.

Dubrovnik itself is a piece of art, no need to look any further for good photo opportunities. No there are no waterfalls near here.

Welshtraveller, some fantastic info there. I am going to read all your info now - looking forward to reading it :). Had a look at your pictures, wow, fabulous. I will definately be wanting to return to Split/Plitivce/Krka next year for sure!!!

Thanks again Barry, i did already notice the Kravice waterfalls in Bosnia but don't seem as breaktaking as the other waterfalls so don't think 'worth the drive'.

Thanks Dubrovnik. I understand what you are saying but maybe i haven't explained it well. In the likes of Neptun, it seems you can walk down around the rocks and hopefully hubbie could fish from there, away from the sunbathers/swimmers. I'm hopeful for some great pictures. Thank you :)
