“Nice hotel - One small bad point!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2009

Grand park hotel is a big, friendly hotel in a nice location. There are 2 pools - one indoors (quite big) but it is unbarable to stay in there as the room is like a green house! The outdoor swimming pool is big and salt water which makes it nice and refreshing. Although you have to get up about 6:00 literally because woman are like crazy animals running and swearing at people to move so they can grab a sun bed!! Also the pool is filled with screaming young children!!



There is a poolside bar selling refreshments such as drinks ( soft and alcaholic). I never went to the restaurant but it looked quite nice. There were restaurants around but there was only one that was half way decent, and it was called 'El Paytalos' they were a small family run buisiness but were very tasty. Also about a 5 minutes walk away is another nice restaurant by a supermarket that is surprisingly tasty too!



The beach is just down the road and is quite large. I would suggest getting a sunbed towards the back of the beach as by the front attracts families with loud young children - still its okay if you are family with young kids. It gets rather busy, so i would suggest you hire a sunbed in the morning for the whole day and leave your towel on it whilst you go for a spot of lunch.



Okay - the small bad point. When you walk into the village, either to have a spot of lunch or are on your way to the beach, you get harassed by the croatian market sellers. They pull you to their stalls and try and flog you off junk! We had to constantly vear from side to side just to avoid them so we could get where we wanted to in a decent time.




I would also suggest you to buy a pancake from a little pancake stall - they are cheap and delicious! This stall is on the way back from the hotel and on the way to the beach!

Had a lovely time in croatia our room was on the 7th floor over looking the baysea view which was beautiful. our room was a good size and the bathroom was very nice and the water very hot, but could have done with a few more shelves, there was a good choice of food available at breakfast and evening meal. it was the end of the season and wasn't busy. very handy for bus into the old town, gets very busy when cruise ships are in. getting from the airport to Dubrovnik was easy you can catch the bus from right outside the airport 35kuna's each each way (to pile gate or bus station then another bus to your hotel) alot cheaper than taxi which was 250kuna's.

We stayed at this hotel in early October. I agree with most of what has been stated in other reviews but do not stay here if you like to take a shower warmer than lukewarm. We were with a tour group of 45 and many of us had cold showers most days. I talked to the front desk, the hotel manager, and the tour leader also talked to the manager. The water was just as cool the last morning as it had been for all 4 days. To the hotels credit they have solar hot water but the backup is apparently not sufficient or hot enough to meet the demands of the rooms.

Otherwise the room, cleanliness, breakfast, location, and pools were all very nice. If not for the hot water issue I would rate this hotel a 4 easily.

Just returned from a week at Grand Hotel Park. Both me and my husband loved it.

The hotel is located in the Lapad area its literally a two minute walk to the beach which was full of sunbeds but the beach is not sandy but big pebbles but the pool area at the hotel makes up for this it was lovely both the indoor and outdoor pool area were fantastic.

We were located on the the top floor (7th) facing out over the mountains. The room was fine cleaned every day.

We were stopping at the hotel on a half board basis the breakfast was lovely plenty of choice the evening meal choice was also o.k.

There was plenty of walking to do around the Lapad area if you wanted, the hotel was a two minute walk to the promenade which was lined with bars and restraunts it was very quiet when we were there but was coming to end of season so was expected but in high season would expect it would get rather busy.

The bus to the old town runs regular at the end of the promenade day and night and only costs around a £1.00 and takes around 10 mins to get there. The old town is amazing we loved it and you must do the walk around the walls costs about £.6.00 each.

While we were there we also did the trip to Mostar in Bosnia this trip was amazing and would also recommend. Lots of history and plenty of bazaar type shops to look round, we had the pleasure in seeing two lads jump off the old bridge while we were there wow the must be mad. Would deffinately recommend this trip.

I could go on forever but I'll stop there to sum up we both had a great holiday, great weather for October apart from one day which was cloudy but we would deffinately recommend this hotel and beautiful Dubrovnik!

We stayed here at the end of the season, so I'm guessing it's much busier during the peak time. Don't get me wrong, it wasn't too quiet, still plenty of people, cant imagine it busier, but at least it was pretty easy to get a lounger by the pool.

The hotel is lovely and modern and clean, and I don't think you can ask for more. Its one of the bigger ones in lapad, and theres plenty of areas to sit and enjoy a drink, outside, or inside, at night.

Its near the pedestrian walk way, but not right on it, which I liked. But it's not on a main road, like Hotel Lapad, which opened onto a road, which no pavement to walk on, which scared me. Buildings on one side of the road and water on the other. You have to keep an eye out for traffic then dodge out the way.
Anyway, no worries like that at this hotel.

Its a 5 min walk up the pedestrian walkway to the bus stop for the public bus into the old town. We went into the old town a couple of days and a couple of nights during our trip. But mostly we just stayed in lapad, finding somewhere to eat near the hotel.

We stayed in one of the bigger rooms, since we booked a twin. Although the twins beds are pushed up together, which makes it look like a double room...

We didn't eat dinner in the hotel, but the choice for breakfast was good.

I think the hotels all been done up recently, and any bad reviews on here must be old or just posted by people who will moan about anything. Looking around, and seeing other hotels, I think this was the best choice. Not in the middle of nowhere, like some of them, and not on busy roads, but just right for coming out the hotel and going a wander...

All in all, very good, glad we chose this hotel.

The whole stay at this hotel was delightful. Get a sea view and watch the sun set over the bay. Food was varied, tasty and very plentiful, but if you feel like a change, the super promenade of cafes and restaurants is five minutes walk from the hotel.
Easy to get to the old town by bus and lovely walks round the peninsula. We loved it.

we have recently stayed from a stay at this hotel. Having read all the reviews prior to going we were slightly apprehensive. However most of our fears were unfounded.
We stayed in the main hotel. I would agree with the comments that the rooms are a bit small, and there is definitely a lack of storage space.The rooms were refurbished last year and are nice. There is plenty of hanging space, just no drawers or shelves to speak of. There is a large shelf at the top of the wardrobe where spare pillows and blankets are stored and you can get these removed and use this.
If you like a bath, as I do , this may not be the ideal hotel.Most rooms have fantastic large walk in showers with extra jets and a seat. I had asked for a room with a bath and 2 days later we were moved to one, which was a rather old-fashioned hip bath.larger rooms for 3 people had modern jacuzzi type baths.

Food. - Breakfasts were excellent, every type of hot and cold food imaginable. I don't drink coffee, but there were different types of tea available and herb teas. My husband had coffee from the machine and said it was fine.
We were booked half-board and were pleasantly surprised. There was plenty of choice, lots of salads, 2 soups, several different meat dishes,a fish dish, omlettes , and pasta, and lots of different interesting vegetable dishes each day. Not cordon bleu, but well-cooked and very good value for £6 a head.

Staff. Generally we found these to be very helpful and friendly. Anything I phoned down for was brought very quickly.

Pool area. Very nice. During our 1st week there beds were reserved with towels on as early as 7. Madness! We were not bothered, and like to sit round the pool later in the day when some were vacated. By early September there were always spare beds. The two pools, indoor and out, are strong seawater which some don't like but I enjoyed them.
The beach is two minutes away and the sea is lovely to swim in.

Location is excellent. Lapad is very pleasant and it is good to get away from the mad bustle of Dubrovnnik old city. Lapad is a true resort, sea, cafes, little shops etc. and lots of hotels have outside entertainment in the eve where you can sit and have a drnnk.

MY FINAL POINT If you are going to Croatia make sure you have a very good travel nsurance policy. I was taken seriously ill at the beginning of our second week there and had to have major abdominal surgery. Our lovely holiday became a nightmare. BUt thank goodness for many things. Firstly the hospital is in Lapad, which at least made it easy for my poor husband to visit. Secondly,our insurance covered everything, - extended stay in hotel, escorted travel home. Thirdly we booked through an excellent company, Holiday Options,highly recommended. Our holiday rep was wonderful, the best ever. She helped my husband sort everything out, visited me, answered queries and even brought me food as the hospital food was awful. We would never have managed without her.
Also, the hotel staff were kind and helpful. They lent us a wheelchair when I came out of hospital and often asked my husband how I was.

To sum up,the hotel was generally good, and everything about the area was very nice, but try not to get ill! The hospital standards are way behind ours.
