Stayed here late August - originally was going to be a long weekend but decided to make it a full week and really glad we did. If we had had to leave after a few days I would have been gutted!! Reading other reviews - yes, I suppose they could be one or two minor niggles that shouldn't really exist for a 5* hotel but on the whole this place was great for us.
The cleanliness is excellent and the layout of the hotel very well thought out and the building responds superbly to it's stunning coastal location. Our room was just fine and the balcony great. Lighting in the bathroom was a bit gloomy but was very clean. Pool area and pool bar were excellent and the views from this area generally are to die for especially the sun-sets. Didn't find the cost of food and drink particularly expensive and the terrace restaurant had a simple but very good menu and wine range. This restaurant also had regular live entertainment which was also of a very high standard. There is an hourly free shuttle bus provided by the hotel to get you to the Old Town but this can get busy but the local bus also goes from outside the hotel every 15 minutes from first thing in the morning until 2.00AM - this is quite cheap and so was never a problem for us. The Old Town itself is superb and is very lively every night of the week.
The climate in late August was particularly pleasant (low-mid 30 degs daytime) and is also very pleasant in the evening and you don't need to wrap up when the sun goes down.
Couldn't really fault this hotel at all - great facilities - pleasant staff IMHO(contrary to some reviews ). We will definitely go back to Dubrovnik and I wouldn't hesitate to go back to the Dubrovnik Palace. Excellent!!
