We have just returned from staying at the dubrovnik palace hotel. We enjoyed our stay but have to agree that the hotel is not 5*, although prices in their restaurants and bars are pretty steep (as you may expect for a 5*)
Free wifi which was excellent...never had a problem with connection or speed contrary to other reviews.
Clean rooms, nice powerful showers
Nice pool and access to the beach was not as difficult as I expected, even at 5 months pregnant
Great location, number 4 bus into dubrovnik starts there and you can buy tickets at the desk
Dive school located on site was excellent...my husband completed his PADI course there and loved every minute
Rooms are quite small and dated
Breakfast was good but when busy there could be a lack of choice - refilling fruit and pastries, particularly by 10am was not always happening. They did have a cooked breakfast option but it wasn't that appealing. Not as much choice and quality as other 5 starts that we have stayed in around the world.
Drinks at the bar and food in general at the restaurants was pricey (£3.00 for a coke and £7.00 for a cocktail in plastic glass!) and not as good quality as meals we had out in lapad or dubrovnik.
Mini bar didn't get restocked regularly and we often had no new sheets on which to write what we had taken. Only on the second to last day did someone come to refill it. Not what you expect from a 5* hotel.
Our safe didn't work and despite asking at the desk, this wasn't rectified during our stay.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Situated on the beautiful peninsula of Lapad, the hotel's dramatic cliffside location, below the aromatic, pine-covered Petka woods, affords spectacular views in every direction.Fully renovated in 2014, each of the 308 contemporary rooms and suites all have private balconies and beautiful sea views. Great food and excellent service prevail. During your stay, you will be tempted to try out everything that is on offer: four swimming pools, one of which is indoors, a private beach, tennis courts, fabulous snorkelling and a PADI diving centre, as well as a leafy jogging path and walking routes through the woods behind the hotel. ... more less
