We spent a week here in October. Cavtat is a lovely place to stay in this part of Croatia. It is only a short bus ride up to Dubrovnik or a 45 minute ferry ride. We used the ferry to Dubrovnik then bussed back!! Dubrovnik Old Town is a real gem!
We booked this hotel on Expedia earlier in the year, as we had always felt that Iberostar's were of good quality and because of the previous good write ups on here!! Although the hotel was OK we were very disappointed with the standard. Without picking over the negatives, the hotel seemed very tired.
Before we flew out, we did realise that the hotel was about to change ownership, so it was an unusual experience to be resident at a hotel when this happened. The new owners are a Croatian company called Remisens. We feel that Iberostar had lost interest in the hotel and wanted to offload it onto someone else!!!
Negative comments are; We are both veggies, so were on a hiding to nothing anyway, Croatia doesn't really do vegetarianism very well, but the catering at the Albatros does really need a good overhaul! The rooms and general areas also need a good freshen up. Our room, 414, had a musty smell to it which wasn't helped by what we felt was a drain problem. The washbasin in the bathroom emptied very slowly and the smell seemed to come from the drain in the floor. The shower screen was not really watertight and resulted in excess water all over bathroom floor. It transpired that a lot of other guests had the same problems. Whether Remisens resolve these problems will remain to be seen. We do not feel that it deserves it's 4 star rating, it is a 3 star at best. Not sure whether JollyScotland went to the same hotel!!!!!!
Positive comments are; Location, The Albatros is just outside the main centre of Cavtat, which is a nice 15 minute flat walk away and there is a ferry landing stage right in front of the hotel, so you don't have to walk into Cavtat to catch ferry to Dubrovnik. Finally, if you are trying to decide whether you stay in Dubrovnik or Cavtat, it depends on what you want. We found that Cavtat was an ideal base to discover Dubrovnik from. It has a lovely harbour, some nice walks and can provide a lovely relaxing break. Obviously Dubrovnik is busier, but the most scenic way to enter it, is definitely ferrying into the harbour on one of the ferries. If we go back, we would definitely choose Cavtat again, but would probably choose to stay in the Hotel Cavtat, which has better reviews and is slightly closer to the harbour!!
