“Phenomenal!”
Reviewed 7 June 2014

We stayed here for 3 nights in early June 2014. The newly refurbished hotel sparkles--the lobby is gorgeous, the rooms are sleek and comfortable with terraces overlooking the water, and the beach facilities are among the best in the Dubrovnik area. With the new renovations, the facilities compare favorably to a high-end Westin, a high-end Hyatt, a Ritz-Carlton resort.

Transportation into the Old City is easy, with a city bus (15 kuna each way) starting directly across the street and heading directly to the city gates.

The front-desk staff are impressively professional and friendly (thanks especially to Zeljko for making us all feel at home). Equally impressive were the breakfast and dinner buffets. Those of us from the US felt like we were dining at a Whole Foods buffet: fresh food prepared to the highest standard.

As with any newly refurbished property starting a new tourist season. There were issues with the electricity going out in my room, though this was quickly repaired. The dining staff also needs to figure out a more efficient way to deliver coffee at breakfast and drinks at drinks. Catching the attention of a waiter felt a bit like a free-for-all at times.

Overall, this is far and away the best resort hotel I've ever found in my 20+ years of traveling to Croatia. It's an exceptional experience, and I'd seriously consider it even for once-in-a-lifetime events like a honeymoon.

My girlfriend and I visited this hotel at the end of May. The facilities were exactly as pictured, the staff were superb, the location was amazing and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We would absolutely recommend this hotel for anyone planning a trip to Dubrovnik.

A special mention must go to John, the Front of House manager, who went above and beyond to ensure that our stay was fantastic.

Room Tip: All rooms have a sea view, so you can't get a bad one here.

The hotel is constructed along the hill beside of the coastline. Every room has the ocean view and compacted with the beach seats in the balcony. However the whole hotel is like a maze and easily to get lost or pass the elevator corridor since the sign is not located at the proper place. And the pricing of the laundry service is not like other hotel that send before 10:00 AM then receive by the same day at 7:00 PM. We sent it out on 11:00PM and asked to be back the next day evening 7:00PM, it was charged 50% extra because that counted for "express". The staffs are friendly however not very efficient. They always missed our bills and needed us to remind them that we also had other bills not been paid yet when we checked out. The indoor pool is vey clean and warm and outdoor pool is quite comfortable. The sauna and the steam room were clean and smelled good. They also has the water beds for guests' relaxation which is very relaxing. The jacuzzi is located in a small yard with tree and quiet view. A good hotel for vacation.

We stayed at this hotel fir a special wedding anniversary and couldn't fault it. Lovely room with lounge area and spacious balcony with views across the sea. Has it's own private beachcomber relax and water is crystal clear. Breakfast on balcony with a super choice. Bus stop across the road for going into city - a walk around the walls are a must do. Fantastic!

Room Tip: Room with a lounge area is spacious

The hotel isn't the closest to the beach in that area but has paths to it. Very nice pool. Buffet for any meal is pretty institutional but some nice items are always available and many things can be cooked to order.
It's a perfectly fine hotel and a short cab ride to the old town . The sunsets are terrific. Bar late is a good place to watch old former communists crying in their beers over the good old days.

We had a superb short break at this wonderful hotel to celebrate my friend's big 0 birthday ! I'd requested a 4th floor room with terrace and it exceeded our expectations.
The view was spectacular and it was so spacious. The manager had even arranged for fresh flowers and fruit bowl as a birthday gift in the room. This thoughtfulness and kindness was shown by all the staff who were so friendly and helpful. We ate in the hotel for all our meals because the choice and quality food was amazing ! One of best hotels we,'ve ever stayed in_ beautiful. Can't wait to go back. Thanks to manager and staff for making a special birthday truly memorable.

Room Tip: All rooms have great view of sea but 4th and 5th floors have Huge terraces
