Royal Princess Hotel
Ranked #4 of 68 Hotels in Dubrovnik
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 26 October 2013

....which should tell you what you need to know, but there are a few points that need to be made / understood about this superb hotel. Firstly, it's one of 3 that make up the Importanne resort - basically 3 hotels joined together, the Royal Princess being the newest and the most luxurious of the 3. Whilst it has it's own reception you still have to check in at the main original hotel a couple of hundred yards down the road. Also, facilities are shared to a degree which until recently (since we came in May at any rate) extended to all restaurants and leisure options. The RP now has its own restaurant which RP residents use for breakfast - a nice airy room with a beautiful,decked area outside. This however does not extend to evening meal service for half / full board customers as the new restaurant becomes an a la carte "stand alone" restaurant open to passers by. Those staying at the RP need to take dinner at the communal Mediterranean restaurant a short walk away OR they can choose to forgo and pay for a la carte. Not a big problem as such - the Mediterranean is closer to the seafront and has superb views from its outside area BUT the food is only average. This is the only area I could criticise the overall package and I would suggest that they offer RP residents the option to "trade up" to a la carte - say 100k a head allowance perhaps?

Accommodation in the RP is staggeringly good and its USP - suites comprises 2 big airy rooms lounge and bedroom, huge bathroom ensuite plus separate additional loo and shower, massive plasma screens in both rooms plus a kitchenette area with minibar in a full size fridge, sink, microwave, kettle and safe. Quiet, private and from most sea-side rooms, views to die for - truly awesome. To sit either on the outside balcony off the lounge or on a chair (or in bed!) in the bedroom is breathtaking, the latter view having almost an infinity effect where you could imagine that there is nothing outside except the sea gently lapping the rocks below.

Location on the Lapad peninsula is picturesque, verdant, quiet and on an excellent bus route that can get you to either the Gruz Harbour area or the Old Town in a matter of minutes - Dubrovnik card passes can be bought from the hotel or online and are excellent value and avoid messing with change on the bus which irritates the already grumpy drivers!!

So, overall verdict is a worthy five stars despite its idiosyncracies BUT the RP is probably more for couples than families as facilities and activities for the latter are limited (which suits us just fine having done the kids club thing with our bundles of joy several years ago!!).

Late October break - 4 nights. Our room was on the top floor overlooking the sea. Sitting on the balcony in the sun watching the ocean and the good views was excellent. Room very high quality, hotel clean, high standard and staff are friendly. It's obviously end of season but this did not detract from the service here or at neighbour hotels. Breakfast every morning outside was a treat, good buffet or cooked to order. Did not eat in the restaurant as it was very quiet with little atmosphere. Excellent spa facilities, (wife now planning a girlie trip) Did eat at the Zoe restaurant in the same complex, okay but could have been better.

Room Tip: Ask for sea view

We had the most wonderful time in this hotel. Pure luxury for us. The room was superb and the location was beautiful. You could get a bus not far from the hotel into the old city as its quite far out, but so very nice. The staff were very friendly and generally all round it was a great experience. Would go back again anytime.

Room Tip: We had a room that faced the road - but it really didnt make a difference unless you were spending t...

This is the third hotel in which I have stayed in Dubrovnik and it is deservedly the best. Great view, spacious rooms, wonderful service, good food. Brand new, well-appointed, with location on NW end of Dubrovnik peninsula. On # 6 bus line for easy and economical access to center of town. Highly recommended.

Stayed at the brand new royal princess hotel, and the view is something to talk about as it could be the best hotel view i have experienced. All new, great location, amazing beach, amazing food and staff of course were top notch. Think the entire resort was very well thought through and this could be felt and seen. We would definitely recommend the royal princess hotel area of the resort. Thanks again to all the staff and we will be back ! :)

Room Tip: seaview is a must for the room.

What an amazing hotel. We were on the third floor with a stunning sea view. The room/suite was brilliant. Everything was to hand. The room was spotless, cleaned everyday day to an exceptional standard. Hotel staff were extremely polite and couldn't do enough for you. The food at the hotel was amazing. The only thing I would say is that they should vary the menu for both breakfast and dinner, but there are many top class restaurants around the area so we wern't to bothered. I would deffinatley go back! Highly recommended for couples.

Room Tip: Choose a sea view room. You wont regret it!

Dubrovnik keeps on getting better and better. We choose the Royal Princess hotel since it's located in the best area of Dubrovnik to spend the day swimming/lounging. The rooms were amazing. The bathrooms were huge and the furniture was new and gorgeous.
We took a taxi to the old town and it was a quick ride. We choose to eat dinner back at the hotel instead of in the old town. Good choice :)!
Our kids loved it here as much as my wife and I did. The water is crystal clear and it's a quick jump into the Adriatic sea from our room. The hotel has pools all around the resort, indoor and outdoor. This hotel is for everyone ... family, couples, friends.
Service and food were great. The SPA is heaven. Babysitters for our kids were the best.
Will definitely be staying again in the Royal Princess.

Room Tip: Pick a room with the sea view.
