First ,the good news.The staff in the Bellevue are amongst the best I have ever encountered in many years of overseas travel and the service quality is likewise first rate.The hotel is about 15 minutes walk from the old town and is superbly located over the ocean.The decor is good (contemporary in feel)and the overall ambience of the place is pleasing being very light and airy.The buffet breakfasts are excellent and the terrace on which one takes breakfast is outstanding.Again staff response to requests is terrific
My wife and I stayed for 6 days and had a really enjoyable experience.
This said I don't believe this is a 5 star hotel.It is a good 4 star and might best be described as 'boutique'.Why? Well,the gym is minute with no running machine.It is shoe-horned into a very small internal room.There is a not very good multi gym(I have a bigger one at home.More than 3 people in the 'gym' at any one time and it would be packed.
There is no outdoor pool ,albeit there is a good private beach.The indoor pool is small but is perfectly fine if onl;y one or two people are in it.There is no business centre and the two PCs which afford free internet connections are very slow.Amazingly,there is no tea or coffee facility in the room.
As to Dubrovnik? Quite fantastic.I suspect that 4 days is the absolute limit for visiting though unless like me you enjoy walking the hills behind (Bosnia is not far even by foot).Make sure you visit the Fort and do try to read about the history of Croatia especialy the recent 'homeland' war.We found that people like to talk about it and are incredibly patriotic about the city,the country and their culture.As they shold beu
Restaurants in Dubrovnik old town are ,however,generally poor( a lot of pasta on offer much of the sauces for which seem to come out of a jar with limited menus and over-priced for what they offer whilst the top end ones-there are about 6 of those-are very expensive and on a par with top end London prices.If like me you are a veggie you are going to have a problem.
In the longer term I think this is going to be a real competitive problem for the city and the country.
Nevertheless a good experience overall.
