“Check-In: Villa Dubrovnik Hotel, Croatia”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

When we stayed there, we were amazed by this little boutique hotel with staff eager to help out. The hotel is in trendy Dubrovnik, but not in the center, away from the tourist dives. The interiors were spacious. The motif slick, yet elegant. It is a 10-minute boat ride away from the historic center by boat (which leaces every hour from the beachside of the hotel) and facing Lokrum Island, famous for its nude beach. Moreover, it could possibly have the best pool in town! They just need to polish some things around the edges.

I have read some varied reviews of this fine hotel and can only comment on our own experience, best summed up by wow!! The very modern design - lots of stone, glass, wood and steel - may not be to everyone's tastes but we loved it. The hotel is modern, spacious, well equipped and does everything a hotel should do, and does everything to very high standards. The location is second to none. Take a 20 minutes walk to the city on the quiet coastal road, or catch the hotel's own Vaporetto, or failing that, a hotel mini bus that runs on the hour. Rooms are all sea facing with some looking over at the neighbouring island, and others with an enviable view of Dubrovnik itself. Patio doors and balconies make the rooms even lighter and brighter; room space is plentiful and glass walled bathrooms make the most of the views. Public spaces are plentiful; the hotel's staff friendly, obliging and always smiling. The spa, pool and "beach" (rocks by the sea really) offer areas to relax. The restaurant is understated but offers quality food and an odd prosciutto come wine bar on the top deck has the best views of the city. Breakfast is cooked to order with as much choice as just about anyone could wish for. Make no mistake, this is a relatively expensive hotel but you get top quality service in top quality surroundings. My only (minor) gripe - we asked about the tailor made excursions but balked at the exorbitant prices. A tip: the same excursions can be bought at half the price from one of the travel agencies in the city. But, that apart, top marks for a top hotel.

Villa Dubrovnik is extremely designer-y right from the outside elevator tower down to reception to the rooms and restaurants. The decor is faultless, yet feels a bit cold and business like (dark wood, lots of beige, TV planted as a focal point in the middle if the rooms..). What makes this hotel stunning is the location opposite Dubrovnik with a view of the old town and a motorboat shuttle provided to take you there. I truly liked the informal, but very friendly staff at the restaurants and the beach- they make this a wonderfully relaxed experience for a five star hotel. The food is delicious, very fresh and never too much (though people with a large appetite might find the portion sizes on the small side). Spa treatments were all good. The beach though is very small- essentially a series of rocky plateaus with loungers and you share the swimming with the landing for the hotel boat shuttle. When its windy, it is quite difficult to get in as it gets a bit choppy and the ladders and rocks tend to be very slippery. So- go if you want to see Dubrovnik and stay at a fabulous place, but choose another place if your aim is swimming and a resort experience.

"Liked the location of the hotel and contemporary design, some of which worked better than others (liked glass sea-view and the rooftop lounge, didn't like shower in steep tub and TV in center of room at foot of bed). The housekeeping left a bit to be desired- the dirty glasses of the previous guests were still in the room when we checked in and the next day the cleaning rag was left on the desk chair. I put the rag in the hallway where it remained there until we checked out. None of this would have fussed me but you are paying top-notch prices here which should guarantee a bit more. The staff were friendly, the food good and the view amazing. In fact, my husband choose this as his favourite hotel on our trip. He loved glass overlooking the water, which made our room light and bright. We stayed in room 401 which has a Jacuzzi on the deck and he enjoyed bathing there every day. I liked the spa and especially the Dream machine which balances your chakras with coloured lights. We were happy to have stayed there, weren’t over the top about the great value, but Dubrovnik is a world class destination and nothing is inexpensive."

We had an amazing stay here in June. The staff are brilliant, very welcoming and helpful without the stuffiness of most hotels of this standard. The rooms and big and comfortable and the facilities are lovely - the view from the roof bar has to be seen to be believed. The highlight is the vaporetto that goes from the hotel jetty to the Old Town - the main reason we booked and a lovely way to go in and out of town.

This in my view is the nicest hotel in Dubrovnik.....

The decor and environment is second to none. The location is great; the hotel providing both complimentary boat and taxi services into the centre of Dubrovnik ....the boat is particularly lovely as it is a retro Italian number ....

Nice indoor pool area with open sun-bathing area .....although we preferred the sun-beds by the sea.

Overall very enjoyable stay ....only reason for 4 stars rather than 5 is that we had a bit of a problem with the bill when we left; we were charged for items we hadn't had, and whilst it was sorted I felt they thought we were being trivial despite it being a substantial amount of money.

I hope this was just a minor oversight on their behalf as the majority of staff that we dealt with were absolutely first-class, we really enjoyed it and would like to return.

Stayed for 2 nights as a treat at the end of a lovely holiday in this part of Croatia. It's very expensive but overall a lovely experience. The staff were excellent, we were greeted from the cliff side lift by a charming guy who showed us around the hotel while our room was being prepared. The hotel is in a perfect spot, a short 10-15 mins walk downhill to the old town, or a 5 minute cruise in the stunning hotel boat which ferries guests across hourly. Wow, that is a special experience.

Views from all of the rooms are beautiful, we stayed on the 3rd floor in the wing set slightly back from the main area and had the most stunning view of Lokrum Island and a different luxury yacht moored up in the channel each night. I would say all rooms have an equally great view.

The room itself was good, king sized bed v comfortable, the TV is a little odd on its pole in the middle but great for TV in bed if that's your thing! The glass bathroom had a privacy curtain that covers most of it (annoying leaving a little gap so if you are not with a close friend this could be an issue!), twin sinks and a shower in the bath. The shower was fine but could be improved with a bigger shower head and slightly less awkward position (it's in the middle of the bath rather than the end, but I am being fussy here!). Disappointed in a hotel of this standard not to have a coffee machine, sachets of Nescafé and a kettle are not good enough, sorry Villa Dubrovnik! Complimentary bottle of water on day 1 only. No milk for coffee on day 2 either. Also disappointed to have to pay £17 for two tops to be ironed. There was option to iron anything yourself which may be the norm in some 5 star business hotels but I feel this is unreasonable for most holiday travellers and I felt a bit conned to be left with on other choice.

The 'beach' area is typical of this stretch of Coast with sun beds out on the rocks and steps to the crystal clear sea. Lovely, although some of the sun beds were a bit tatty, again I'm being fussy but you are paying a lot to stay here!

We only ate breakfast which was an 'all you can eat a la carte', i.e. order whatever you like from the menu for a set price of about 22 euros. This was good and the service excellent.

I'd recommend this hotel for the general ambience, style, location, views, service and the private boat, it's a classy place, but I disagree with reviewers who say its flawless. With a few adjustments it could be, but not quite yet.

Dear LondonMolly99,

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at Villa Dubrovnik.
Whilst I am pleased to hear you appreciated the service from our dedicated team and overall hotel amenities, I was disappointed to hear this particular guestroom facilities were not to your liking. We do offer complimentary bottle of water each day and I appologize if you didn't recieve it. I will share this feedback with my managers in order to emphasize service details.
I also appreciate your feedback with regards to shower, TV location which we will take into account in the following reconstruction.
Looking forward to your next visit.
