After reading a lot of reviews ( some good, some not so good ) about this Hotel, I consulted with my local travel agent who told me that he sends customers there all the time with no "major "complaints. So I reluctantly booked our family trip only to be very pleasently suprised. We found that the Grand Hotel Park was very centrally located for trips to the old town , only a 10 minutes bus drive that cost about €1.30. The beach was about a 3 minute walk away. Breakfast was very adequate with a vast selection of cereals, cooked foods,fruits, cold meats etc. However my family did only sample the cereals and coffee but the rest looked good and seemed to be refreshed regularly. The room was adequate if you just slept there, otherwise it might contribute to "cabin fever" but this did not apply to us as we were out all day. I would not classify this hotel as a 4 * but probably close enough. A fellow countryman, George Bernard Shaw described Dudrovnik as the "Pearl of the Adriatic" I would describe some of the staff that I came in contact with in a similar fashion. All staff were very pleasant but we found 2 particular
" Pearls " The first was named Soldas and he was Manager of the poolside bar. He was smiling from early morning to late at night, seemed to speak several languages. He even spoke The "Cupla Focal" for us Irish. I heard him converse in at least 3 other languages. He smiled permanently for the total duration of his shift . The pool bar was spotless at all times and he was particularly nice to all the children that were there. Whatever amount of money you pay this Guy is not enough because he could be an Ambassador for your Country, not to mention your Hotel.
The 2nd Pearl that we encountered was Niksa. He seemed to be the Manager of The Hotel Bar. We went to him for our nightcap most nights and he knew our order immediately. When we asked "how are you Niksa tonight" his reply was the same "always good"
For us these 2 Guys "were "The Grand Park Hotel." We feel if you didnt have them then the Hotel was nothing particularly special.
