After reading the reviews of this hotel (prior to our visit) we really didn't know what to expect. The reviews we read turned out to be pretty accurate. The rooms and the restaurant turned out to bring the hotel from a 5* to a 4* at best. The rooms were dated and the evening buffet was not 5*. We were glad we had only booked B and B because it gave us the opportunity to experience the excellent choice of restaurants in the walled city (20 minute bus ride door to door for £5 return, two people).
The views from our balcony and from the rest of the hotel were amazing! You have to get up extremely early to get a sun lounger. Lots of people left their towels for several hours. Staff didn't seem bothered about this. The pool area is very clean with good facilities.
The cleaning staff were extremely friendly and the chocolates each night were a nice touch.
The location of the hotel is excellent if you want to be secluded, yet has easy access (bus every 20 minutes to walled area of Dubrovnik) to Lapad beach (10 minute walk away).
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the hotel and if we returned to Dubrovnik would most definitely stay at the hotel again. It was by far the best hotel we saw!
