We had just spent a week on the island of Korcula at the Marko Polo Hotel and relocated as planned to Dubrovnik and the Neptune Hotel.
When we arrived at the Reception desk (which is shared by the Neptune, Ariston, Royal Palm and Royal Princess Hotels) we were informed that we had been upgraded to a Suite of rooms in the Royal Princess !.....I am always a little cautious when hotels bump you from the planned schedule, but in this case I need not have worried. We were transported the 100yards up the road in a stretch golf buggy to the Royal Princess which even on first viewing looked lovely.
Our Suite was on the second floor , with a small kitchen area, large lounge and bedroom and 2 shower/bathrooms. The balcony had a wonderful view of the rocky coast line and the small islands just off the coast. We had a huge 50inch screen TV in the lounge and another in the bedroom.
We used the"Wellness" centre many times, as the heated indoor pool was wonderful, as were the Sauna and steam rooms, the outdoor sea water pool was very cold, but it was early in the season, so it came as no surprise.
I don't think that I have ever stayed in a better hotel or experienced more helpful and pleasant staff.
One tip for future travellers, is to buy your bus tickets from the Hotel Reception for 12 kuna ......
as on the bus they are 15 kuna. The Number 6 bus terminates just across the road from the hotel and terminates again at Dubrovnik Old Town, so you can't go wrong and you will always get a seat on what is sometimes a very crowded bus!
We loved Dubrovnik and the Royal Princess Hotel !.......................we do not usually return to places, no matter how good they have been, but we will definitely return to this hotel and Dubrovnik.
