Moved from The Importanne complex just over the road due to last minute availability issues, and glad I did.

This resort is a little on the expensive side, but would be perfect if you could find the right offer.

Bedrooms are very clean, great views ( sea view room ) and the bathrooms are to a very high standard.

Check in service was great, staff helpful, bar food and restaurant food both very very good indeed. Breakfast buffet, although a bit of a mad scramble, was plentiful and very very nice with massive choice.

Pool area was clean and well maintained too.

The whole hotel reeks of cleanliness and a healthy attitude towards guests. Only downside is that it's a ten minute taxi drive from the old town, but on a good day this can be walked with no effort.

Moved here after a disappointing stay at the Hotel Ariston next door and was very impressed. It's very modern, clean and the facilities are excellent. The beds are comfortable, the air conditioning is quiet, the bathroom was very nice and I was particularly impressed with the red light in the bathroom so you don't lose your 'night vision'!

The breakfast was excellent and not the usual rubbish you seem to get everywhere else in Croatia and the food in the Langusto restaurant was very good as well (though we were the only ones in there so there was zero atmosphere!) We didn't try the main restaurant for dinner so couldn't comment on it. The bar area is very pleasant and a nice place to drink.

Downsides, having to pay for internet is not really very good these days. There's also no wireless internet in some of the rooms (I had but my colleagues didn't). A couple of the staff were miserable and one was just plain rude - though on the whole they were good.

Generally though it's a very good hotel and I would certainly recommend it to friends.

The Lacroma was an excellent hotel, the staff were very helpful especially on the front desk. The rooms were just normal hotel rooms but very clean as was the whole hotel. The facilities were excellent, the 2 pools lovely, the outside one very cold. The breakfast was one of the best I have ever had with everything you could want. The sister hotel the President has a private beach and it is 200yds away and you can use their sun beds etc. The sea is beautiful and clean but the beaches are pebbly. The bus to Dubrovnik is just on the road saide and comes every 5 min. In all an excellent choice You must walk the walls in Dubrovnik the views are magnificent

Hotel was amazing, so clean, immaculate, spacious and staff very friendly and helpful! All spoke excellent English...would put us to shame! The spa was unbelievable, it includes 2 saunas,steam room, shower experience and 3 gorgeous relaxation rooms, one of which has water beds! Gorgeous 33m outdoor pool and 25m indoor pool! Only 0.5km from beach, sea was crystal clear! Bus operated outside hotel, with regular buses to Dubrovnik Old Town, 10kn a trip (€1.40)! Breakfast is a huge buffet with everything you can imagine! Food at bar was nice just limited options for vegetarians! Overall an amazing hotel and well worth a stay!

We recently stayed at the Valamar Lacroma for four nights under great weather. Had a plush junior suite with balcony & sea view; we were in heaven. Since it is no longer high season, the hotel was not full and this was perfect for us. We had lunches by the pool, enjoyed a very nice supper at the hotel restaurant, late nite drinks at the bar with live musicians every night. Close to the old town by bus number 6 in 15 min sharp. Internet access is not free but we did not care. During check out at 10 a.m, we had the surprise to be charged for stuff we did not take in the mini bar. We asked for explanation and were treated by a young micro manager who very rudely accused us of wanting to get away with the fees. This was such a bad brutal call to reality having spent magic moments there; we were very disappointed. Extremely bad customer skills, this is not the way to treat customers. Obviously they should look into their own staff rather than point to their clientele who spent thousand of dollars in their establishment. Overall, we recommand the hotel but we certainly recommand you to tip the maids well; there the ones in charge of the mni-bars. You do the math.

We had a fantastic time in this Hotel (2010)and generally we found the 4* rating to be as good as or better than many 4* in destinations such as Spain and Italy at a very competitive price. Don't be put off by the initial view of the Hotel as it looks a bit like a series of adjoining Eastern style apartment blocks, especially if you are from Western Europe. The other thing to remember is that this hotel is used by many business people as well as holiday makers so there is a quick client turn-around and the Hotel is very busy, but because it is very big, the business is not noticeable. The location is excellent with many walks around the Babin Kuk peninsular albeit they are a bit rough and need further development. Just near the Hotel there is a bus stop (busses every 10mins) that gives you transport to and from the old town of Dubrovnik. If you want to walk there is a beautiful tree covered coastal walk that takes you to the Marina. This takes about 45mins (if you don’t keep stopping for a drink), but this only takes you to the outskirts of Dubrovnik. The area around the hotel is fairly underdeveloped, but we personally hope it stays that way if you want a peaceful holiday. The only thing I would like to see is more ‘working’ street lights along the many rugged and beautiful walks.
The Hotel is very new (about 2 years I think), very big and spacious (the entrance atrium is huge) and, unlike many new Hotels in many popular destinations, the room walls are solid making for very good insulation from the neighbours. The rooms are big, the beds are huge (at least ours was) and are kept very clean. If you book this Hotel, you must request a sea view if only to wake up on a morning and say “What a fantastic view over the sea and mountains “.
The Food is a good as you would get anywhere and an added bonus is that you get entertained at least twice a week by some local music group. The food is varied and generally of mid mediteranian flavour. I don't think I saw one chip all the time we were there. The dining room is large and fresh with great views over the large Hotel gardens looking out onto the sea. The staff seem to take their work seriously, are very helpful and we found that they all spoke very good English.
Overall we found the Hotel difficult to fault, the location is idyllic and quiet without feeling ‘out on a limb’. We are seriously rebooking already for next year.
