“Good facilities, variable service, extortionate restaurant prices as no local competition.”
Reviewed 29 August 2011

This is a modern, clean hotel, with good pools and reasonable rooms. Very pleased that the hotel could put the kids in an adjoining room. Less happy that they expected a 16 years old boy and his 13 year old sister to share a bed, so my daughter ended up on a single bed that was squeezed into the room.

Biggest issue was the profiteering on meals. The hotel is about 8 km from Dubrovnik and all the restaurants within walking distance are part of the hotel. £80 for 4 pizzas and drinks, £140 for proper food.

This truely is a stunning place to stay,with beautiful views and really modern clean environment. Set on a hill with stunning trees and scenery you could hardly not like this place. This was second visit however first was only a 1 night stay in October and it was like a ghost town then. I travelled this time with my 6 year old daughter, just the two of us.
Apartment (we had a 1 bedroom sea view) is very modern with very best decor, and a kitchenette which has a microwave and large fridge, dish washer with 2 ring hob. Kettle suppliedwitha few tea bags and coffee sachets to get you going. Fridge is well stocked with drinks/chocolate and some snacks.also provided is a starter kit for washing up ,dish cloth, sponge etc and washing up liquid and surface cleaner. There are pans and frying pan few dishes plates etc, and a tea towel. Our fridge did nit seem to col things quickly but they may have ben because there was so much in it, I supppose we could have asked them to remove it all. Bathroom has supplies daily of shampoo conditioner body wash etc.
Complex has 3 outdoor pools middle one was busiest with many children, we went mostly to one near actual hotel. I believe the other one was adults only which is always handy to know, as I can totally believe those without children would find it to much in peak season.
Restaurants really is a mixed review, there is a promenade where there are 4 eating places a bakery but it's a pizza pallid quite reasonable about £8 a pizza, a pasta place but they will tell you they only serve 4 pasta dishes ( now this confused us as menu was slightly confusing so we asked and ended up with some cold anti pasta ) this was again fairly reasonable but from what we could tell little choice. There was a steak type restaurant we did not go to, and a fish restaurant which was very expensive and for what we had was not good value for money especially considering where we are, they even charged £4 for a side dish of spinach and £4 for some boiled potatoes as when I asked what it came with he said nothing really just a sauce and there was no price for side dishes as such except with the fish of the day that I could not have, but I saw someone else had some veg so asked for whatever I was not fussy but I really felt that was over the top. I expect to pay a bit more when staying in a nice hotel but the night before I paid for myself and my daughter to go into Dubrovnik by shuttle which cost £6 and we had a lovely meal in Dubrovnik in a really nice restaurant overlooking the sea and city wall and we had lots to eat and cost me less than walking one flight of steps and having a basic sea bream with veg one beer and one orange! My advice would be to go into town. The other thing is there is not slot of atmosphere at night it feels a little sparse, probably because everyone has gone into Dubrovnik! For me it was fine as we always brings lots of games and we had the tv which hosted some good films,but if you are looking to occupy the children there is not alot of entertainment. I did venture to the gym daily and there was no charge for the kids club which was in the fabulous sports hall, so if you have slighty older children there looked like there was table tennis, badminton, games room, sports tv, gym, tennis courts and all free. Free wi fi too which was great. Beach was pebbles but very clear and snorkelling good to watch small fish my daughter loved it. A small Marina and waterspouts at normal rates was also available. One good things was there never seemed too much of a problem people finding sun beds, everyone was well catered for without being on top of each other.
Service was ok I would not say any of the staff went out of their way to be extra friendly or to smile and make the holiday a difference but then it's a big hotel and that's what you find whether it's 5 star or not. All in all location location location made this holiday for us with the great amenities during the day. Would I come back again, yes but I would not bother too much with eateries as stated in many of the reviews I read they are right.

we stayed for a week half board with 2 children. the hotel was clean,food choice was good and views were amazing. the staff were friendly and efficient-nothing was any trouble. the on site supermarket and bakery were reasonable prices and lots of choice. there were 3 large pools- one adult only one and the other 2 had childrens pools attached. each pool area had a bar,clean toilets,towel attendants giving out clean towels and quiet music playing.the hotel also had a travel agents on site where you could book trips and also book the hotels very reliable and comfortable shuttle bus or water taxi into dubrovnik.
we went on a couple of trips and would recommend the island lopud to go for a lovely sandy beach and small harbour.however, would say to get one of the taxi bikes down to the beach for a couple of pounds.we were told it only takes 10 mins to walk but took half hour in blazing sun-realised when we saw everyone else passing on these bikes.needless to say,we took one going back to the harbour and kids thought it was great fun,because it was bumpy and fast.
dubrovnik is a beautiful place and well worth a visit,as is lokrum, an island 10 mins away from there. it has a salt water lake and peacocks walking around,an old monestary and cafes etc-it is a nature reserve.
the hotel does have some entertainment,mainly bands,trios and karaoke nights, has a childrens club and excellent spa.
i would definately go back because a week is not long enough to see this beautiful,friendly country.

Room Tip: i would advise people with trouble walking and using steps to request a room in block one in residen...

I stayed at this hotel for 7 nights and my only complaint is that I had to leave!

The services provided by the hotel are excellent and there is plenty to do for everyone. There are plenty of restaurants to choose from (some more expensive than others) and an on-site Supermarket and Bakery for those who want a quick and cheap snack.

I was told by the hotel staff that the resort was fully booked, however the resort always felt quiet. I suspect the reason for this was partly due to the size of the complex and the 3 pools (one of which was an adults only pool), beach, spa, sports centre and boat transfers to Dubrovnik Old Town and Lopud. It seems the Radisson Blu has thought of everything!

I would recommend having a treatment at the Spa- it was AMAZING! I have never felt so relaxed.

We have stayed in very comfortable de lux room in the west side. The room and bathroom are well equipped and balcony is spacious . The sun comes there in the mid afternoon so you may stay on the balcony and read even in the very hot day till 2-3 pm. The hotel seems to be too short of staff therefore the room is usually done daily a bit too late but well. Breakfasts and dinners are rich, tasty and service is very polite and speed. Desserts are delicious especially chocolate mousse and cakes. We are both see swimmers, the cost is rocky and you have to find your best way to get to the see. We have. The places along the sea cost and around three swimming pools are very clean, very well maintained and excellently serviced with towels and beds. We have enjoyed very much little jazz concerts in the bar at the lobby. For regular evening visit to old Dubrovnik we have used our car having long parking experience there but hotel has its own shuttle bus. Radisson is not cheap hotel but the rate between quality and price is not exaggerated. Except wines! The wines are much overpriced.

Resort fab and very clean with very helpful staff,pure luxuryMust admit though, we were surprised about the cost of eating on the resort. We felt that it would be like Italy where eating out would be full of good quality food at reasonable prices. This was not what we found to be the case here ,nearly £80 for a very basic lunch.reasonable supermarket helped. We went to a number of places off resort e.g nearby Orsan fish restaurant on staff recommendation and found it lovely but expensive with a limited menu. The best by far and local gem was KONOBA HILL in nearby Trsteno ,less than £ 10 return by cab.small,fab food and service ,a real find.Great meat and fish and an undiscovered ambiance.

The hotel was really nice and modern.
We stayed in a junior suite who has all the amenities needed.
The best thing, for us, was a "not allowed under 16" swimming-pool. During the summer you have a lot of families and it's really nice to have a pool only for adults, where you can swim without avoiding inflattable tube.
The breakfast was nice, with a lot of choice.

Room Tip: The junior suite was really nice
