We were very apprehensive about going to Hotel Albatros as at the end of May and the first week in June we read they were invaded by two large parties of Irish and that our holiday would be spoilt as it was close to the airport. Yes there were planes passing over the hotel but not at all intrusive and as to say you would need ear plugs and that you would be woken up in the morning was utter nonense. It was an advantage as it only took less than 10 minutes from the airport to the hotel where we were checked in by very pleasant reception staff and our cases were taken to our room. Anna our rep was a charming local girl and was very knowledgable. Our rooms were large and spotlessly clean as was the rest of the hotel complex. We found all the hotel staff pleasant and helpful. The food was buffet style and we never had to queue. Breakfast pancakes and fried eggs were always cooked fresh. In the evening there was a variety of food and fish and meats were cooked in front of you on the griddle. Yes the drinks and icecream were more expensive in the hotel but isn't that the same anywhere.
There are several bars just outside of the hotel on the waters edge where we ate mid-day and went there in the ev ening to watch the amazing sunset. The waiters there were charming and spoke english very well. We took the boat to Dubrovnik twice and it took about 30 minutes. The 2nd time we left late afternoon and had a meal in a restaurant overlooking the harbour. As the boats never ran in the evening and apparently you had to change 3 times on the buses we had a taxi back to Cavtat and there were 5 of us and it took about 40 minutes and cost 250 kuna. I hope this will reassure you if you are booked to go to the Albatros that you will have a enjoyable holiday and if you are booked with Thomsons please go and see Anna and say hello to her from us. By the way the Irish parties were only booked in for the last week in May and first week of June and will not be visiting again this holiday season 2009. It would be advisable if you are thinking of going in 2010 season to check to make sure that the Irish Company haven't made a reservation.
