Stayed in Grand Hotel Park for one week. I was quite concerned reading previous reviews about the villa/annex rooms as this was where we had been allocated. We got a room in Villa Park and we could not fault it. It was very spacious in size with more than enough hanging and storage area for all our clothes. (Did meet one lady travelling on her own who was also allocated a room in Villa Park but she said it was very small and after two days she got moved into the main hotel so maybe we were lucky with our room!) Beds made and towels changed every day. Air con definitely needed in the soaring temperatures! Breakfast was great - plenty to suit all tastes so no reason why anyone would go hungry from it. We were usually down early between 8am and 9am so it wasn't overly busy but allow yourself time to enjoy a lazy breakfast in case of queues etc. I did not go into the outdoor pool but my partner likes to swim regularly and he said it was just too salty for swimming for any length of time.
The hotel is in an ideal location and Lapad is a beautiful area. We walked to the old town most days and got a bus back. Number 4 is more direct than the number 6 on way out of town. Had read lots of previous reviews of the hotel and things to do in Dubrovnik and made notes of them to take with me so this was all very useful when we were out and about. Lapad is much quieter and more relaxed than the old town. Everything had quietened down by mid-night though you were still able to get drinks in most bars. The old town is also much more expensive for food and drinks.
We did not go to the beach so not sure if you have to pay for the sun beds there. We preferred to walk around the cliff walk and then go down in to the rocks and swim and sunbathe there. It is amazing how you can do this in all areas we visited - the old town, Lapad and Cavtat!
Croatia is an amazing place to visit. Everything about it is local so it's not like other places I visited with English food, drinks workers etc....you just have to embrace their culture. It is an ideal location for couples or groups of friends wishing to enjoy a relaxing break in amazing surroundings. Maybe not so much for groups of young people wanting a party holiday!
