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.
