“The name says it all- Paradis”
Reviewed 14 June 2014 via mobile

We stayed here for 4 nights this week, on arrival at the airport we paid 300 kuna to the apartment.

We were welcomed by the friendly couple who showed us around, to our room and took us to the local supermarket to stock up!

We stayed in room 5 nice size for the 2 of us- twin bed, TV, air con, balcony with great view over the sea. Bathroom with shower and basic hair dryer. My only small issue with the room was it was sloped ceiling and being tall I banged my head a fair few times!

The pool area overlooks the sea, a couple of loungers & umbrellas very peaceful. The private beach area is rocks not sand with step access to the sea - quiet, clear sea with amazing view.

To get to the beach or restaurants/bus stops there are a lot of steps and hills. We are fit 20s/30s and found it tough in the heat, take into consideration if you struggle with access.

To get to the local pizza place or beachside seafood restaurant follow the steps down the side of the apartment along the road turn left at the stikovica sign and then go through the tunnel on the right which takes you to the beach. It took us a while to figure it out! To get to bus stop continue past the tunnel up the hill and the non existent bus stop is near the sign on the side of the road.

We got the number 12 into old town - get off at the stop after the tunnel. Cross over the road down the steps and follow the path/steps to old town 5 min walk lots of steps. Buses always 10 mins late than time table! Taxi back from old town 150 kuna.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay although a little remote without a car it is do able with buses and the lovely owners will take you and drop you off to old town.

Great couple, great hospitality.

A great family run business. hosts were really welcoming and the rooms were very modern and well kept. we only had a double room but this had access to a large shared living room and a massive balcony with an amazing view. we had hired a car which made getting from the apartments to Dubrovnik/the few local shops very simple, made even better with the map and information given to us by our hosts (the local shops aren't within walking distance). but the one night we wanted a break from the driving, our hosts were kind enough to drive into town. the only thing to be mindful of is that they take payment in cash, but even that was a relaxed and friendly process.
a highly recommended hotel.

Nice little place with great views. Room was not huge but was modern and had a lovely balcony. The main issue was the distance to Dubrovnik. We needed to get two buses to get to the city, and the buses were never on time with only 1 per hour so not an ideal base for visiting Dubrovnik regularly. Having said that the apartment was good value and the pool is nice.

Overall a nice little place but beware getting to and from the city is difficult (you can take taxis but its's very expensive at about €20 one way).

These apartments are wonderful !!! As well as the owners . We arrived early and they let us check in early, and upgraded our room when they saw we had such small children. The rooms views were breathtaking, the pictures do not give the views justice. The private beach was perfect for our small children. I would highly recommend these apartments to anyone!!! It made our trip perfect!

Our room was great, had a large balcony with a spectacular view, modern bathroom and comfortable bed. The hosts were very friendly and welcoming and gave us all the information for buses etc. If you are looking to stay somewhere close to all the action, ie old city of Dubrovnik, this place is far from all of that. It requires 2 separate buses to get to town. Also there are no shops close by which was a little inconvenient.
When we switched on the television, it did not work. We were told someone would be over the following day to fix this, and this did not happen. So we had no useable television for our stay. The one other thing was the final morning before we left, there was no hot water so we had to have cold showers. Maybe this place is normally outstanding, but unfortunately in our case there were a few hiccups.

Stayed here for a week in June 2012. Fell in love with the place straight away, the rooms are immaculate, very comfortable and air conditioning is excellent. Continental breakfast is just enough to get you started in the mornings, thats if you can concentrate on eating as the views from where its served are anazing!
The owners can't do enough for you, they organised for us to hire a car (it's about 15 min drive to Dubrovnik with irregular busses so highly recommend a car) and while we were waiting for the car offered to bring us to the local supermarket to get anything we needed. Location is breathtaking, pool and balcony look right over the sea and you can watch cruise ships coming in and out of the port. Also a private rock beach is a 2min walk with a bigger public beach and two restaurants within a 10 min walk.
Would highly recommend paradis apartments to anyone looking for a relaxing holiday in heaven. Will most definitely be returning in the future :)

We fully understand why this place is called Paradis. It is breathtakingly beautiful, wonderful service, and far enough from Dubrovnik to offer peace and quiet, but near enough to get there via a short drive or bus ride.
The owner couldn't do enough for us - such a lovely man. He even brought a gift up for my birthday.
There are 2 restaurants in walking distance. Both have superb food, friendly staff, and are literally next to the sea.
We would wholeheartedly recommend Paradis. Boats passing to moor for the night in the bay are one of many bonuses to see.
