Having read some of the reviews on here, I was not sure what to expect - it seemed to be a pretty mixed bag! So I have to say I felt presently surprised!
We have just returned from a 7 night stay at Iberostar Albatros in Cavtat. This is a stunning little town a very short journey away from Dubrovnik airport. The staff all spoke perfect English, reception were friendly when we arrived and offered us a porter service for our luggage.
We had booked for a standard double room and hadn't paid the additional cost for a sea view. We found are room easily, and let ourselves in to a large triple room with a lovely little balcony that looked out over the mountain, the outdoor pools and the sea! The balconies are not big, and the wall between each one is very low, so do not expect privacy on your balcony!
The bathroom was also a good size with both a bath & shower. Our room was cleaned & tidied daily - although I'd recommend putting the "do not disturb" sign out the night before if you're not a morning bird. We didn't do this the first night and got a knock on the door from the chambermaid at 8am!
The breakfast is a good selection of hot foods (scrambled eggs, boiled eggs, bacon, beans, etc), omlettes cooked to order with your choice of filling, cereals, fruits, yogurts, breads, etc. I would recommend you cut your own bread though. They put out cut & uncut bread, but the cut bread appears to have been out some time and was always going stale. Dinners are not particularly exciting (we had paid for half board) - but they varied it each night and there was plenty of choice. We did pick up that it was cheaper to buy drinks at the lobby bar and taken them to dinner rather than order while we were down there.
The hotel is a short walk from Cavtat which is beautiful with a selection of restaurants and shops. You can get a bus directly from outside the hotel to Dubrovnik every day at 9:15 or 11, which costs 20kn. This was very useful. Also boats stop outside the hotel to take you to Dubrovnik. We booked an island boat tour through the tourist information in the hotel, which turned out to be a bit cheaper than the other operators.
The evening entertainment was terrible it has to be said! And at times was very very odd! Also I incorrectly assumed I would be able to access their gym for free as a guest, but there is a charge for each use!
If you are expecting a truly amazing hotel, the Albatros is not it. But it was very clean, with good size rooms, a lovely location and helpful staff.
