We've just returned today from a great weeks holiday in the Grand Hotel Park, the hotel is in a fabulous position,15 mins by local bus (No4) to the wonderful city of Dubrovnik. The Lapad area, where the hotel is located, has a beach, a promenade, and some good walks locally, a good Hypermarket, which is a mere 10 mins walk from the hotel, also plenty of bars for a drink, and several restaurants, which we did'nt use as the hotel food was really good. The hotel has everything really, good rooms, upgraded recently, but just lacking a bit in the storage area , could do with some drawer space. A gym, indoor/outdoor pool, wellness centre, internet, free wifi, a garden, taverna which serves fantastic Pizza's, kids playground, but no evening entertainment or daytime activities.Restaurant service and food quality was very very good, perfect for us.
A room upgrade to a sea view room is a must, we had excellent views, Cruise liners sailing past, and fantastic sunsets.
Dubrovnik, well, absolutely beautiful, we visited 4 times in our week, the walk around the city walls is well worth doing, and we would also recommend the cable car, for excellent views over the city, but just being there is so special, just meandering through the city steets etc is fab.
There are plenty of boat trips to wet your appetite if you fancy it, and museums galore, but you have to pay for entry into these, as you do to access the walls, 70 kuna per person for the walls.
The bus fare is 12 kuna each way, no return tkts, and you can pay on the bus, but this is 15 kuna, or get your tkts from newsagents etc, the bus stop is ten mins from the hotel, and buses run every 15 mins, but they can get really full.
Thats about it really, plenty of trips on offer from our tour operator, Thomson, the transfer from the airport is about 45 mins, which is good.
Our only niggle, is that we had to wait 4 hours before we could check in at the hotel, we were told this on the coach transfer, but this is the norm, as we found out from other guests at other hotels, maybe because all the UK flights arrive on a Sunday?
Could Thomson mention this in the brochure?, would be a good idea, so you could prepare for it.
To sum up, we came to visit Dubrovnik, stay in a really nice hotel, enjoy some nice food & drink, and Croatian hospitality, relax in the sun, in a beautiful country, at a very good price, and the weather was good as well. Love Croatia.
