That was my third visit to Dubrovnik, such a lovely town and surroundings, Croatia is one of my favorite holiday destination.
This was my second time at Rixos Hotel and both i had great time and i was happy with my choice, especially this time! My first visit was a bit off season and constant rain ruined my holiday, therefore not much to say about first stay.
This time me and my wife had only 3 nights, luckily Dubrovnik welcomed us with bright sunshine and marvelous weather, which was couple of weeks ago.
What makes RIXOS Hotel is a great choice? Hotel means room, where actually you stay and Rixos has great rooms, nice view, flowers in balcony, refreshing bright room even the bathroom thanks to glass separator, rooms are clean and housekeepers are nice. Room has good storage area (we stayed in a regular room) with a safety box, clean and comfortable bed and good quality of bits and pieces... Nice and very Refreshing Room.
If the Food is second most important!? It was really one of my best breakfast i've ever had in a five star, extraordinary variety of pastries, bread, meat products, fruits and everything, start a day with great view from restaurant with good food in front of you is priceless.
We had dinners out but i know hotel had a great a la carte restaurant with international cuisine.
Dubrovnik doesn't have many great sandy beaches, same for Rixos Hotel but they have a nice sea front, no need to mention the water, refreshing Adriatic sea is in front of you while you are sun bathing in a well shaded, wide pool area. Easy and quick lunch opportunity by the pool area if you are in the premises during the day.
Transportation to the Town Centre is easy, quick access by taxi cab in 5 minutes, around 50Kuna, coming back from the Town is bit more because of a one way street. Great location, not right in the town but only five minutes drive or 15min. walking distance.
I am sure some people might get interested, Rixos has the only Casino in Dubrovnik area, there is a decent casino downstairs with live games.
Overall Rixos is NOT a classic boring 5 star hotel, it's fresh, bright, young at heart feeling kind of 5 star hotel with great service, it is definitely NOT expensive, great value for the money, friendly and helpful Staff. Well managed Spa and a Casino definitely make a difference. Not much needed but i had to leave hotel to buy some creams and needs, strangely there isn't a drug store in premises! That's probably the only problem with the hotel.
Rixos Hotel is a cool and fresh place to stay and enjoy Dubrovnik.
