“5* Welcome”
Reviewed 27 June 2012

First of all I want to thank the Dining room staff Petar and Stephen for going out of their way to make sure I was served with food catering for my special dietary requirements (low salt). It was clearly a pleasure for them to serve me in this way and took a lot of stress from my holiday and the worry that I may be ill, so I'm reluctant to complain about anything. They themselves and the chefs were 'stars'. Reception staff were lovely, very friendly and efficient. I can't comment on the buffet food as mine was special but my husband enjoyed it, although there was a tendancy to overcook the fish, but that aside there was a fantastic variety of food, and lovely desserts and fruit to compensate the guilt! Bar staff were very friendly and helpful too, although we couldn't get away from football in there as it was the European cup and there were 2 TV's! Others were enjoying it, so that was fine. We found fruit in our room for my husband's birthday and a happy birthday letter, which was a nice touch. Hospitality, service and welcome was definitely 5* with a family atmosphere. I thought the rooms rather dark, and was glad of the balcony to let the light in. I did notice that the balcony was not very clean actually, however the bathroom and room were kept clean. Could do with some kind of card to indicate a change of sheets or not.....I don't know how often they were changed to be honest! The hotel, as people have said is in the most beautiful position by the harbour with mountains around. Cruise ships can be viewed from the pool area. It was disappointing not to be able to relax on a sunbed at times, as there was certainly a shortage, especially to be in the shade (and only 11 umbrellas?). Temperatures soared to 36c when we were there. Croatia exceeded our expectations and it is really worth going on the trip to Montenegro and Mostar in Bosnia, hopefully you will have Tony from Gulliver Travel as your guide, he was fantastic, so interesting. We had the most wonderful time and would gladly return, maybe at a slightly cooler time of the year.

Room Tip: Try and get a room with a balcony.

Dear Sandra S,

First of all we would like to thank you for the time that you have dedicated to the Hotel Lapad posting this kind review full of details about your stay.
It's so flattering for us to read about 5 star hospitality and service!

The whole staff is so grateful for the beautiful words that you used to describe the courtesy of their services (from the reception to the breakfast room).

I am very glad to know that you had a very pleasant stay in Dubrovnik at our hotel and I will share with all the team your comments, especially with Petar and Stephen. They will be more than happy.

We are very sorry about your negative experience of the balcony cleanliness.We have already passed your important information to the housekeeping department. Please do accept our sincere excuses.

Regarding the pool area there is a limited number of the sunbeds because of the pool size but I hope that in spite of that you enjoyed your time.

We hope to welcome you again in our lovely hotel and our beautuful country.

Kindest regards,

Katica

Our group of seven motorcyclists stayed overnight here in mid May. We took the (old, dank, dreary Jadrolijna) ferry to Bari moored opposite the Lapad the following evening at 10pm. Lapad is a really nice, bright, modern hotel with a good food and nice rooms. Lovely swimming pool too.
The staff were very helpfull and the parking for the bikes on the site was safe.

A 35 minute walk (first part uphill, but then all downhill) brings you to the entrance to the old town. Beautifully restored after the 'homeland war' in 1990 the old town has lots of restaurants, shops and pubs. To walk the circumferance of the city wall takes about an hour and has some very steep stone steps, but is a must do. The cable car to the fort/war museum on top of the mountain is very well worth doing too.

Would recommend the Lapad to anyone.

We found the service, cleanliness, food and friendliness at this hotel second to none. The only slight problem is if you want a relaxing day at the pool it is too small for sufficient sun beds.
If we return to Dubrovnik we would stay here again.

Dear ChrisLeicester,

We are happy that you fully enjoyed your stay with us and appreciate your compliments.

We noticed your remark regarding the pool. It is small due to the traditional architecture that Hotel Lapad boasts.

We hope to welcome you back soon.

Just returned from a week at the Lapad, this is an excellent hotel. I can't think of anything to complain about, even found the evening meals acceptable for a buffet style dinner despite what some other reviewers have said. The staff are polite & very helpful, the position is great, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. I would definately recommend this hotel

Excellent class hotel Room 39 looked up the hillside. Very spacious. Shower equipped with modern jets was welcome on very hot days. Excellent breakfast included. Waterfront rooms extra 20 Euro's. Staff very pleasant and helpful. All you could want. Bus lets you off back home from the Old City just a few steps down the roadway. Ride down to the end and back around instead of walking a bit for the first stop back to town.

My friend and I spent 4 nights at the Hotel Lapad - we are seasoned travellers and very fussy!
Thanks to all the staff/the location/ absolutely everything was really a 5 star experience. I would return today if I could.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the 'new build' floor 5/6/or 7 - amazing views!

This was our first experience of Croatia and we shall be back. The hotel was the best we have ever stayed in, all the staff were really pleasant and nothing was too much trouble. It was my birthday on our date of arrival and there was a welcoming birthday message and basket of prepared fruit in our room. We stayed on the 5th floor, our room being fitted to a high standard.
We had decided to stay B&B, the breakfast was of high quality with plenty of choice. On the one occasion we ate in the restaurant the buffet the food was excellent. The service in the bar area was second to none. Location perfect for town and local facilities.
Two small restaurants one hundred yards to the right when leaving the hotel, The Mozart and Blidinje (for pizzas) are recommended.
The people were so friendly, the city and coastline so beautiful, we can't wait to go back.
