Wasn't sure about staying here, but it was a pleasure. There is no PRIVATE beach but a PUBLIC beach that is right in front of the hotel. I preferred to use the nearby rocks for my leisure. Easy to get around, number 4 bus stops almost outside the door and runs every 20 minutes to Dubrovnik (8 kuna if you get the ticket form hotel). Not too far from restuarants and bars. Supermarket not far away. Hotel has been updated, my bathroom was great the room itself could have been better, it did have a balcony though no view (not a problem for me, was quiet and relaxing out there) it was "linked to" the next room and the door could have been better soundproofed, first 3 nights had a snorer and another night a "loud" French couple. Breakfast was adequate & taken on the terrace with views of the bay, nice touch, air-con was good, bed comfortable, what more do you want. Recommend Pero on the front desk, fountain of information & very friendly. Cleaning staff were always friendly if a little reserved, always ready with a welcome.
Best places to visit Atlantic Restuarant (free wi-fi), try the fried fish, Paladium Restuarant, owner is nice guy, had the black risotto (cuttlefish). Lapad Beach Bar for drinks and view of the bay, got to see a sunset from there. If you don't mind a walk or taxi try the Blidinje restuarant (the terrace) overlooking the new harbour (close to Lapad Hotel), had the squid/calamari.
Things that could have been better, the Lapad Beach area is rundown and needs work, lots of peeling paint and debris, although they were working on it the last few days,
