This 3 star hotel offers good accommodation with rooms recently re vamped but further work is required to make it a truly enjoyable place to stay. Few rooms have balconies and most have poor or non-existent views, over a scruffy courtyard if you are lucky.
It is a lasting legacy of the old Communist regime when large hotel complexes were built (5 in this area,and a 20 minute bus ride to the old city of Dubrovnik)... with no artistic flair....concrete walkways, straggly corridors, scruffy walkways/gardens......tidy but not pretty........terraces with no views. Little public areas and those there are have little comfort or atmosphere.
Dining room , in the basement, has been modernised but is noisy and functional. Food varies but generally adequate although little variation, after 4 days it seemed to be much of the same.eg pasta or pork!Desserts rarely varied.
Evening entertainment reminded me of Costas in Spain circa 1970s.......in fact the hotel is similar to this.Band started playing as majority of people went to dinner!No concept of trying to attract them to spend more money.
Most of the staff try hard but they seem to have little direction, and do not understand the concept of adapting to the customer's demands. A general feeling pervades of this is how we do things, we cannot and will nor change or adapt to the 2010s.
Hotel is fine for a few days, exploring Dubrovnik area but not for a 2 week beach holidya.
Small pebbly beach nearby which is fairly unattractive, concrete sunbathing areas, water sports available. but lovely views.Swimming pool is good.
Whole area needs knocking down and being redeveloped by an upmarket established hotel chain who have the necessary and relevant commercialhospitality experience.
Shopping mall!! between this hotel and Argosy is appalling!
