“Peaceful retreat”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

We stayed at Hotel Splendid in May 2014. The hotel is located in Lapad beach area, outside of the old town Dubrovnik. It was perhaps 15 minutes away via the public bus 4 (and the stop is literally outside the front door). The hotel is older and does not have the most modern decor, but the room was incredibly clean and the balcony views were stunning. There is not a pool, but there is some nice beach area and it is beach front so you can't ask for more. Our rate included both breakfast and dinner, which was a great deal. The breakfast was good, dinner was so-so but it was really awesome that it was included. The bed was not the most comfortable, but it was minor. The staff was very friendly and helpful. For the price, it is an outstanding deal. I would recommend this hotel based on the location and the price!

This hotel is expensive for what you get - travelling in high season, you expect high prices but the service and decor just do not match up, even for a 3 star. The location is good for the beach, but in a sleepy suburb and a bus-ride away from the historic centre of Dubrovnik where you will find all the interesting sights, restaurants and bars. This hotel seems to be geared towards large groups, so probably best to avoid if you are travelling alone or in a couple, although some of the staff are friendly enough, the overall impression is pretty soulless. The buffet breakfast is varied and plentiful but the options for dining in the evening are limited. The single rooms are on the small side.

Welcoming friendly staff , comfortable rooms the hotel splendid offers a peaceful and relaxing holiday.if you want discos this is not for you. It's not a location is ideal for all amenities of dubrovnik. The food is good but self service and things do run out, but if you ask
The staff will do what they can to help.it made for a fantastic weeks holiday.

Room Tip: Go for rooms 201 to 301 not ground floor because it is a job to see the sea.

We prefer smaller hotels so discounted lots of the hotels in the area. Based in part on Tripadvisor reviews, we booked this hotel for a one week break in June. Tonight is our last night. The staff have all been terrific. The amenities are perfectly acceptable - several bars, one just above the beach/promenade. The room is much as you'd expect from a 3 star hotel. We were in 119, at the furthest point from the main hotel building and I found the wifi signal was weak in the room, but fine in the lobby and one of the bars. But the double bed was huge, the balcony was welcome and we never used the aircon, so I can't comment.
The hotel is a 2 min walk down to its own beach/promenade. 15 mins walk to the main beach and bars. The No 4 bus stops right outside the door and the buses run every 15 mins. 12 Ku single into the main town. Tickets available at the hotel reception.
The only weakspot is the food. It's all self service buffet style and some of the main course evening meals were a bit mediocre. But there is ample choice and quantity, so that's fine. When you consider the price, I have no hesitation in recommending the Splendid. It does exactly what it says on the tin.

Don't go here if you have any difficulties with steps and stairs there's no lift and there must be 100 steps from our room to the beach. Breakfast is pass able although the same every day. The chef will freshly poach eggs for you on request __we had also booked an evening meal but ate out after the first night. The staff were very helpful and friendly and were mostly of a certain age! No pool and a rocky beach make it a poor choice for young children. The bus into Dubrovnik is just outside and there are some pretty walks nearby.

Room Tip: Some rooms have a separate sitting room and all have stunning views

Just returned from 7 day break, and loved every minute of it.Hotel situated overlooking the bay,all rooms have sea view, a 5-10 minute walk down to the main area of bars and restaurants.The rooms are spacious and and comfortable with a fully stocked mini bar, cleaned every day.The breakfasts and evening meals were very good with plenty of choice.Friendly and helpful staff in all areas of the hotel.There was 2 scenic walks to do which showed off the beauty of the area. Bus stop right outside hotel took us into Dubrovnik Old Town.All in all we had a fantastic time and would go back there, highly recommend it.

Room Tip: All rooms have sea views so any room is good

We had stayed happily at Hotel Splendid several years ago and although it was much as we had remembered the views were better in that the pine trees between it and the very pretty inlet had grown and we could see much more of the Lapad peninsula . For a 3 star hotel ( presumably a penalty for not having a lift) we found it very good and the atmosphere was one of people wanting to be helpful . Most had been there for very many years and although they may appear slightly reserved , we found them always very keen to help. The rooms all face the sea and have pleasant balconies . The food is not particularly imaginative but always plenty of availability i.e. regularly replenished. Beachside restaurants are available at Lapad Park - a 10 minute downhill walk where there are also many bars in attractive settings. Breakfasts are quite good but toast can be an issue as there is only one machine (new) with capacity for handling 3 slices BUT rather slow and only does side at a time. The availability of having breakfast on the large outside terrace is a real plus.

Room Tip: All rooms have sea views and small balconies so are much the same .
