OK, if you like big rooms do not book a classic double we upgraded to a superior which was so much better. Next, there are no tea/coffee making facilities or irons/boards in the rooms but you just request these on your arrival at no extra cost. The Elfinite restaurant( level one ) is very expensive and not that good, and my hubby got bitten badly whilst eating in there so take mozzie repellent! but the sunset and view are breathtaking. The biggest let down for me was the pool area, there was no space, crammed in like sardines, six inch gap between people and children, not good, but thank god we found a tranquil spot next to the indoor pool (top floor) where we able to relax. One thing for the men, no shaver outlet in bathroom and no free sockets in room, take dual roundpin plugs, reception only have so many to lend out. Those are the negatives, positives, good bus service outside hotel, infact, its the terminus for the bus so there is nearly always one there waiting , number 4, 15 mins into old town( get tickets from reception as they are cheaper oh and eating is not allowed on bus ) the people are wonderful and the view from the hotel is fabulous. Dubrovnik oldl town is a beautiful place, stunning architecture, so historic and wonderful people, we took a boat trip from the port in the old town to Cevtat this place was beautiful, small, quiet, with good bars and restaurants and its cheaper than the old town, we were advised to eat at Leut, the food was fantastic, and right on the waters edge along with a backdrop of greenery and one or 5 beautiful yachts bobblng about. Take the cable car if you can the views over the old town and out to sea are not to be missed and if you are fit walk the walls of the city, mind you, leave these activities until late afternoon as it can be too hot.
One other thing, there are no english papers at hotel but they do photocopy the Times every day which is in reception. This is a good 5 star hotel, the rooms are classic style not boutique, the beds are very good but the pillows are a bit thick and firm and there are only english news channels on tv, not that you will be watching much tv!! The sea is crystal clear but there is no beach just rocks with access into sea. Enjoy yourself.
