Valamar Dubrovnik President Hotel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 28 May 2012

First impressions of our hotel were draped in mystery because upon arrival, the full view of the hotel is not evident because of it's unusual design.However, when you walk into the reception and catch a glimpse of it's porthole views across the sea, you start to get an idea as to just how lovely this hotel really is.
The check in was swift and efficient and we headed off to our room. (room 512), wow! Our first view was of the large bed with overhead canopy and the lovely lounge area,but the best was yet to come; we opened the shutters to reveal the most fantastic sea view ever! The "balcony" was actually a huge terrace (our rooms were deluxe booked via Cosmos), approx 25ft long!
The only thing missing from this great room was the provision of tea and coffee making facilities, but honestly this is really just nit picking!
The hotel food is good and plentiful and regularly replaced as and when required.Evening entertainment for the beginning of May was either non existent or very poor, with the exception of a string trio one night, who were actually very good and added a bit of culture to the evening.
The spa facilities and indoor pool were excellent and never crowded.The hotel and rooms were exceptionally clean and the staff were always brilliantly helpful and friendly.
The location of the hotel is perfectly located and a number 6 bus will take yo directly to the old city!
Tip: buy a three day "Dubrovnik" card because this is excellent value and will get you free admission to a number of attractions that you would probably miss otherwise; you also get 10 free bus rides included too!
The scenery in Croatia is stunning and one of the loveliest places we have ever visited! Go soon, before others also discover the charms of Croatia!

Room Tip: We booked via Cosmos, who include a deluxe sea view room which was truly outstanding!

My wife and i stayed at the President for 7 nights in May 2012 and had a wonderful time. The hotel is situated right on the beach and the views and sunsets from our balcony were amazing. We had no problems getting into the old town as the bus stop is right outside the hotel and the buses run every 10 mins. up until midnight. We had our breakfast outside on the terrace every morning which was fantastic and the chef cooked our eggs to perfection. We found the staff very friendly and helpful and the hotel was spotlessly clean. The only downside was the bathroom which needs updating as we found the bath very awkward to get in and out of, but apart from that minor issue we highly recommend this hotel.

We stayed at the President for a week in one of the romantic rooms.The view from the balcony was just stunning. The room was perfect, modern and clean, tv, free Wi-Fi etc (just a very tiny thing, no milk for tea!). Breakfast each morning is a large buffet with something for everyone and is again perfect. We used the Wellness facilities each day(pool, jacuzzi, sauna, small but adequate gym with great views) which were all superb. Hotel service on the whole was great, the one thing that let this down somewhat was the service in the restaurant which was a little slow - the food is good but we only ate in the hotel on the first night.

We would definetly look at staying at the President again if we we visit Dubrovnik, which itself is beautiful especially the old town. There is a number 6 bus service from right outside the hotel which takes you there and back all day so even though it's about a 50 minute walk to the old town from the hotel (which is worth doing on a nice day anyway and stop at a few cafe's along the way) - it's really only a 15 minute bus ride. Thanks to all at the President for making this a great stay.

This was our second visit to CROATIA and first to Dubrovnik. The week long holiday was everything we wished for. The hotel was situated in a quiet spot and facilities were great. Room was beautiful and spotless with a wonderful terrace and spectacular views. The buffet "show cooking " was about the best we have sampled and was freshly cooked, with plenty of variety and we enjoyed our breakfast on the terrace restaurant each day again plentiful and freshly cooked eggs. We didnt get time to use the spa as the weather was glorious so we went out each day but the indoor swimming pool was fine. You can take long walks on the coastal paths from the hotel or catch the regular bus from the stop outside day and evening. The bar staff were efficient , prices reasonable , but entertainment limited to one evening this early in season.I would certainly return to a Valamar hotel when I revisit Croatia

Looking for somewhere new for a weeks break this year we decided on Dubrovnik and The Valmar President Hotel. This was a package booked through Monarch who have just started a weekly service to Dubrovnik. We chose this hotel because it had good reviews, it is on the end of the peninsular facing west, every room has a sea view, and what turned out to be a real bonus is that the number 6 bus starts from outside the hotel reception and takes you into town in 15 - 20 minutes for little over £1. The return journey is just as easy because the route starts from opposite Pile Gate in the old city. We used that service quite a lot...

The hotel has its own private pebble beach and there are secluded rocky coves in each direction away from the beach. There is a novel funicular style lift on the outside of the room blocks that will carry you from reception on the seventh floor down to the beach on the first. To the north of the lift there are two blocks of rooms with balconies overlooking the sea. To the south there is a third block, where we stayed, with rooms with a terrace then a garden area beyond which is the sea view. We were rather pleased to get our room because you are not overlooked from above or below. The sunsets are amazing as you look due west.

The room was large and very well equipped with twin beds, generous wardrobes and additional hanging space, a room safe, TV, Mini bar, settee, chairs table and desk. Outside were two chairs and a table. The bathroom was complete with all your needs including hairdrier, shampoo and gels.

The breakfast and dining was excellent. Mladen the breakfast chef will prepare you one of his special omlettes, or eggs however you like them. The half board dinner arrangement was really good with chefs preparing fish, salmon or meat freshly cooked. There was a wide selection to chose from but the seafood salad starter is something special.

I could go on but suffice to say, we are experienced travellers and rate this hotel very highly among the best we have stayed in through the middle east, far east and African countries.

Room Tip: All rooms have a sea view. Rooms in the north blocks look over the beach and could be noisy in high...

My partner and I stayed at the President from sunday 29th april. The hotel has a wonderful setting outside dubrovnik. Every room has a sea view and as noted before the sunsets are breathtaking. We found the food excellent, good quality and extensive choice. I like sea food and was particularly well catered for. Excellent bus service from just outside the hotel straight to outside the old towns walls. Best thing for me though was the professional, helpful and friendly staff. Special mention here to john the reception desk manager and snezana within the dining room. The hotel overall was fabulous as was dubrovnik which was equally beautiful and fascinating. Great week.
