The hotel has a superb location across a small road from the pebbly Albatros beach. This location becomes a spectacular one in the evening as it provides a most stunning vivid scene as the sun sets over the horizon with the city of Dubrovnik in the distance.The beach itself is a hub of activity during the daytime offering the usual array of beach facilities such as sunbeds, pedaloes, sea kayaks etc - all payable. A variety of local businesses offer a range of boat trips directly from the beach, including regular services to Dubrovnik where you arrive directly at the city walls via the old port.
A 15 minute stroll around the bay takes you from the hotel into the centre of this most picturesque resort, with its Marina and adequate range of cafe bars and restaurants.
The hotel itself is a standard 4* property, albeit a little dated in places, noticeably around the uninspiring Front Entrance and Reception area. Apart from this the hotel provides most of the things one would expect from a 4* rating, with just a couple of gripes outlined a little later. We had a sea view room on the 1st floor which was more than adequate in terms size and fittings. The view was one which overlooked the extensive pool area and beach, and contained a good size balcony (although one which lacked any privacy). The fridge in the room was not stocked at any time which provided the opportunity to store cool drinks purchased at the local supermarket. Daily housekeeping was of a very high standard. As the temperatures rose the air conditioning was switched on so keeping the room at a comfortable temperature. Safes are provided in the room but at a small charge.
The pool area is a very attractive one with the large circular pools surrounded by sunbeds including a large number which provide permanent shade from fixed sunshades (always the 1st ones to be claimed!), Plenty of standard sun umbrellas are available around the whole complex however. The only irritant we found around the pools was the fact that a number of locals from the beach tended to wander freely onto the area at times and treat the pool as their own. This could spoil the generally quiet atmosphere and disrupt leisure swimming by guests who had paid for the privilige. Perhaps this is something hotel management need to look at.
The restaurant provided in our opinion exceptionally good quality in terms of the standard and range of food on offer. Fresh fish and meat cooked on the grill while you wait, together with a wide range of 'pre cooked' dishes. We stayed for 11 nights and never tired of the menu. We preferred to eat outside on the terrace and were a little disappointed at times with the table service which fell below 4* standard at times. To eat a 3 course meal without any clearance of plates from previous courses was a little disappointing. I would stress that little blame should be attached to the staff who were run off their feet, it was clear that the area was understaffed.
I cant comment on the Indoor Pool or Gym as they were closed with the Gym area being redecorated.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would certainly consider a return to the Albatros.
