“A little piece of heaven !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 May 2013

We are just back from Hotel cavtat our second visit. We were very pleased to come back ,there has been renovation after the Winter and the rooms were fresh and clean. We also missed the sun terrace on the roof but used the one by the sea , which in no way is second best, a lovely spot. If you are thinking of going to Cavtat this hotel is in an ideal location with a completely flat walk to bars and harbour. We will definitely be back cannot wait to sup a lemon beer on the terrace watching the sun go down.

Just back from our third visit in a row to Cavtat (yes, we love it that much) but our first visit to the Cavtat Hotel. As previous reviewer stated newly refurbished rooms look great even if the walls weren't quite dry! One or two teething problems i.e. bathroom bulbs seemed to blow - ours went twice and another couples went three times and their sink dislodged from the stand, but none of this mattered and all were remedied quickly by the lovely staff who were all very welcoming from the maintenance men up to the Manager.

Although when we booked we weren't expecting a pool (which is due to be finished this season) a slight disappointment for me was that I was unable to sunbathe on the roof terrace due to the on-going works with the new pool - however as it was early season I was always able to find a space on the platform by the sea at the front of the hotel which was idyllic ... so peaceful.

The food for us was absolutely fine - there were lovely salads with nice fresh bread, a fish dish, a pasta dish, a meat dish and usually something more 'Croatian' style - all of which were very tasty, and if you cant find something you like all I can say is go self catering or go to Benidorm!!
I would rather a hotel do 4 or 5 dishes well than try and do 10 and get it wrong.

We loved the quiet 'grown up' feel of this hotel with no noise or raucous entertainment etc. and all only a stroll away from the beautiful town and harbour. Although the hotel we stayed at twice last year was okay, we much prefer the Cavtat and have already looked to see if the same package is available for next year - sadly it's not showing yet, but it really will be hard to find anywhere as lovely as Cavtat and the welcoming Cavtat Hotel.

Just back from an excellent stay at the newly refurbished hotel cavtat. Everything was fabulous. Accommodation was 1st class, staff very friendly and food v good. The situation of the hotel is great, within easy walking distance of bars, restaurants, bus station and boats to Dubrovnik and other destinations. Lots of lovely walks around the area, especially the trek to cilipi (3 hours).

We visited the Hotel Cavtat last year 2012. It was our 1st visit to Croatia. We were unsure whether to book a weeks holiday so instead we booked a short 3 nights Sunday 29th July - Wednesday 1st August break and we weren't disappointed. We were so shocked how fabulous the Hotel Cavtat was and Cavtat itself. We booked a seaview room with a balcony and we were given a room in the front block 1st floor Room 110. The room was a full seaview room overlooking the bay. Wonderful. We sat on the balcony many times enjoying the seaview. The Hotel Cavtat was very clean throughout. The staff work very hard to keep the hotel clean and tidy. We found nothing to complain about. We were Half Board so we did have our breakfast and our evening meals at the Hotel Cavtat. We found the food to be good and yes there was Croatian food on the menu which we did eat. We found the food to be very good. I have read other reviews concerning the complaints regarding the food and we can not understand what the problem is. The staff do try very hard to please.

We had an amazing and extremely good stay.

We had such a good time at the Hotel Cavtat and Cavtat that we have booked to return again this year 2013 but for a much longer period. We will be staying for a whole 1 week from Sunday 6th October 2013 and again at the Hotel Cavtat half board in a seaview room with balcony.

We are so looking forward to our return visit.

July 2012 was our second stay at the Hotel Cavtat, having also visited in summer 2011. This time we returned, taking our parents for their 40th Wedding Anniversary. The hotel staff and management could not have been more accommodating. They arranged a champagne breakfast for my parents on the day of their anniversary. Good value for money, with a good selection of Croatian food. Great location – 5 minutes walk along the water front to the main harbour. Highly recommended. We hope to return.

We stayed at the Hotel Cavtat in July last year and loved it. We hope to return this year. It was spotless, the staff are really friendly and the food good and with an excellent choice. One or two people complained about the food while we were there and we couldn't understand why! Neither could the manageress - she was tearing her hair out trying to please everyone. She was available every meal time and couldn't do enough to help.

My question is simply, where is the new swimmimg pool located? I've seen replies that said on the roof terrace - does this mean it is actually on the roof where the sunbeds were last year?

And is everything on track to be finished in time for this season.

Dear WiganPeer1,

we want to thank you for posting a comment on TripAdvisor site. It's such a nice to read wonderful words about our hotel, our staff, our management. We're always trying to please our guests and to fulfill their expectations.

The swimming pool will be situated at the roof terrace, but in the end of it, precisely on the top of first building. I hope that my description is helpful. Of course, you will have a much better roof terrace for taking a sun and relaxing in sun lounge chairs.
Looking forward to see you in our hotel this season!

Warm regards from sunny Cavtat,

We went to Hotel Cavtat, last September (2012) and on the whole had a good time. The Hotel had been sold earlier in the season and was not at its best. The overall experience has blighted us from ever going back to Cavtat. We are going back to Croatia for our fourth holiday this year. But Hotel Cavtat won't be on our list of return visits. In the Hotels favour. Extensive renovations were/are planned for this present Winter. A swimming pool etc. Which may well bring the ambience up. But as stated we will not be returning to find out.If you want a quiet location, and we did. Then Cavtat is great. There are some great walks. Some good restaurants and the pace of life is laid back, almost tyranquil. Dubrovnik is a boat ride away. Well worth a visit. When we went the city was heaving. 2 cruise ships had docked and its human cargo had been dumped on the quay.....Not much room. And having to shout at each other instead of talking to each other is not our idea of fun. We would go back to the City....but would make enquiries ref cruise ships before hand.

Room Tip: We had a sea view room overlooking the bay, on the fourth floor. Very quiet and sun all day
