We have just returned from the Uvula hotel in Lapad and were totally impressed with everything.
The location of the hotel was perfect, not too much of a transfer from the airport, a short walk to the beach and a bus stop a few steps from the front of the hotel with a bus every 15 mins into Dubrovnik.
A few people have commented about half board at this hotel, the selection of food in the morning and the evening were not only varied but very tasty, the kitchen staff and waiting staff were very friendly and very well trained, I feel hungry writing this review and thinking about that lovely food. As for wine, we found the prices fair and had a glass or two most evenings.
We were on the second floor and had a great view of the bay, our room was comfortable, clean and incredibly well maintained by the housekeeping team, they got a good tip at the end of the week to show how great we thought they were.
We visited the indoor pool everyday as other reviewers have said if you want extra towels for a swim you have to pop down to the spa, it's only half a dozen steps and the staff are very nice, it's not the end of the world to walk down there and ask.
Lapad is a nice little town the sea was still warm enough to swim in during October, lots of bars, restaurants and shops were open, the town is very clean, with the streets being cleaned several times a day, my street at home is cleaned once a year if we are lucky. Each night we popped down into the town to watch the sunset before popping back to the hotel to eat.
One thing we didn't like about the town was the locals next to the supermarket swigging beer from bottles and the lady who works in the kiosk telling us the chap she had just served was a heroin addict, it put us off hanging around too long after dark as it was too much like home.
We found Croatia clean, friendly, pretty, relaxing, good value for money and a place that we would like to visit again.
We used to love Greece, but now we have visited Croatia we will have to go there again, we don't know why we haven't visited sooner.
Uvula 10 out of 10, thanks to the staff for a truly wonderful holiday.
