“excellent location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 September 2011

Croatia is beautiful and cavtat is a lovely area ideal situation to vist dubrovnik by bus takes 30mins cost approx £2 oneway or water taxi £6. Cavtat is also only 30 mins from Montengro.
The Iberostar is a nice hotel needing a little updating, the staff are helpful and friendly especially those on reception. The view from the our room was spectacular over the sea I would have been extremely disappionted if i had been staying in a garden view room i would advise everyone to ensure a sea view when booking. The locaton of the hotel is the best in cavtat. Breakfast was very good, but unfortuately the down side to the hotel was the buffet evening meal the main courses we felt were very poor, this is the reason i would not rate the hotel as excellent. The fact that the hotel is a little tired did'nt really matter probably due to the view, but the evening meal needs to improve.

Room Tip: sea view room would be a must otherwise feel travelers would be disappointed

Have just returned from a lovely stay at the 3 Star Hotel Cavtat. The hotel may only be 3 star but you get 5 star service and views. The rooms are very tidy ( a little bit dated but that didn’t bother us) with a flat screen TV and good balcony area. Towels and bedding were changed daily which was excellent. The bathrooms are small and the shower blocks need modernizing but that is my only criticism. The breakfasts were lovely and better than 3 star, the evening buffet was good value and I have no complaints.
The hotel does not have a swimming pool but the see is just yards from the front of the hotel and you can swim safely in lido area, the hotel provides free sun loungers in its sea area. No beach so no sand in uncomfortable places! There is a sun deck on the top floor of hotel with an air conditioned room to cool off if you need to.
The view from our room was stunning ( hopefully my picture is with this review ) and it looked like all rooms had sea views but if you want the best ask for top floor.
Cavtat itself is a very picturesque resort with a small harbour that has some some stunning yachts in. Roman Abramovich’s yacht was in there early Aug. The cafes and bars are lovely and the service was good in every one we went in. We ate out in the restaurant Leut one night and the steaks were gorgeous.
If you are scuba diver like myself then there is a good dive centre 10 mins easy walk away called Epidarium at the Epidarus Hotel. They dive daily at 10 am and have a good dive boat and some interesting dives. I dived on 2nd century wreck that has been caged to protect it.
Dubrovnik is only a short trip away by boat (£10 return , 1 hour) or bus ( £2.5 single , 30-40 mins ) . Its well worth a visit and the war museum in the fort at the top of the cable car is very interesting. Its also stunning at night time , the last bus back leaves at midnight so you have plenty of time to spend an evening in the old town.
You can go on trips to Mostar in Bosnia and trips to Montenegro also boat trips to islands in the area. Lopud was my favorite Island.
Overall a lovely resort great value hotel and would/will gladly go back to Croatia and Cavtat.

We stayed at this hotel for a weeks holiday. The location is excellent , minutes from the main port area with the bars and restaurants. The town itself is beautiful and laid back. The hotel staff were helpful, room was functional and clean. There was good selection of food for breakfast (bacon, eggs, cereal, muesli, cheese, bread , pastries,fruit) . We stayed on b&b basis and while the breakfast was convenient, it wasn't something i looked forward to after a few days. However the hotel was good value and in a great location with a shop beside it and a hotel cafe/bar for drinks and snacks which were very reasonable.
I would describe the room as functional and clean.
The hotel provides safety boxes at reception, which require both reception key and your own key to open, which we thought was a good system.
Unfortunately on our check out date we could not get a late check out as the room was booked, so we had to settle for changing clothes in a room off reception and showered at the swimming area - which has cold showers and changing areas.
The swimming area is like a concrete jetty - not a beach - but it was great and very quiet and relaxing , even when busy.The water is so clear - bring your snorkel.
I would have two small issues - 1. On some occasions not enough sun beds were put out in the morning so we had to request them from reception and
2.We noticed a smell from the swimming area by the changing rooms on our last 2 days.

I would describe it as clean and functional but not luxurious and would probably stay here again.
One other point - when I emailed the hotel about airport transfer, they said this can be booked through their website.
Having looked at this option, which was approx €40, I decided to book a local taxi which was only about €15.

I stayed here for a week in August in a sea-view room. I could not have asked for anymore from the hotel. The food was nice, location excellent and views breath taking.

Branka on reception was very nice and very helpful.

This is the first time in my 50 years of travel that I have chosen half board in a hotel but IberoStar proved what I have been missing. The reception was very helpful with information on everything to make your stay enjoyable, the restaraunt was an excellent experience with food selection for every taste We had a sea view room on the third floor which we found to excellent quality. We booked immediately on our return in spring for our late September holiday. I would recommend this hotel to the holidaymakers who are seeking a quality of service all round.

Superb location overlooking the sea in a quiet part of Cavtat but a short distance from the town centre. Our bedroom was a bit small (but adequate) but apparently others are larger. Staff are very friendly and efficient. Breakfast is very good. We started off on a bed & breakfast basis but switched to half board after being ripped off in Pacific restaurant and discussing the hotel dinner with other guests. The buffet dinner has a good choice and nothing beats dining on the open terrace overlooking the sea. I would thoroughly recommend and so would any other guests we spoke to. The only downside was that there were a couple of stains in the bedroom carpet.

Have just returned from a wonderful week in beautiful Cavtat. The hotel was excellent, friendly and helpful staff, especially Branca at reception. Towels changed daily lovely view over the bay from our balcony which gets the sun in the evening. Breakfast had lots of choice, buffet style hot and cold menu. So relaxing lounging on the very quiet sun terrace which had lovely breeze or by the sea on sun loungers. Would definitely return, sad to hear the hotel has been sold and wish all staff working there all the very best for the future. Lots of nice restaurants to choose from Ciparis, just to the left and up road from hotel very good and excellent value, also Restaurant Ivan had lovely fish dishes and pizza restaurant next to hotel also delicious and good value. Could not fault beautiful Cavtat and only wish we could have stayed longer, will definitely return and have lots of memories to cherish in the meantime.

Room Tip: seaview is worth paying extra for
