I have just returned from one week at Valamar Club Dubrovnik, and my overall impression is quite positive.
The rooms are somewhat small and the bathrooms are of course also small, but they are quite modern and the
shower was one of the best that I have ever come across, at any hotel all over the world.
The "All inclusive light" package consists of breakfast, lunch and dinner, including unlimited wine, beer and different kinds of soft drinks
during the meals (07:00-09:30, 12-14 and 19-21).
All meals are served as a buffet and after a few days, the variety of the food gets a bit boring, but the food is, however,
always very fresh and well prepared, often as "live show cooking".
The only real change on the menu was on Friday evening, when they served grilled tiger prawns and mussles.
The pool area is large, so there is always a sunbed for everyone, but you should not choose this place if you want to have a peaceful and
quiet vacation, because the animation team is really up and running, and the music is almost allways turned on, but during my stay, they
managed to activate people of all different ages. You should also be prepared on the fact that there will be a lot of children in the
pool, and for me, which is the father of a nine year old girl who loves to swim and jump into the pool, this is not a problem, but it
might be for others, if you are not prepared for it....
The Copacabana beach is only a few hundred meter walk from the pool area, and it's nice to take a swim in Adriatic sea as a change,
but it's better to have a sunbead at the pool, and walk down to the beach once in a while, because the beach is covered with pebbled rocks.
The animation team was very professional, without being pushy, and also their "night shows" were reasonably entertaining, at least
compared to many other animation teams I have experienced in other hotels.
If you plan to visit Old Town Dubrovnik, which I think that you should, then I suggest that you do this as early as possible in the morning, because it's
a very hot busride from the hotel area (about 30 minutes, depending on the traffic and the number of passengers)
and it's also very hot inside the Old Town, and it will be even more crowded in the afternoon.
I went into Old Town at 16:00 to watch the game between Liverpool vs. Arsenal, and I much say that both the busride into town and then back again,
were among the worst short busrides I have ever done, but you could of course always take a taxi.
As a conclusion, I would like to mention that we did not pay the full price, because our travel agency had a campaign at the beginning of the summer,
and we got about 25% discount on the normal price, so I'm satisfied with value of the stay at Valamar Club, but I would not have been satisfied if we had
paid the full price, because then you could get a much better deal at a real All inclusive 4 or 5 star hotel in for example Turkey or Egypt.
