My partner and I stayed at Hotel Cavtat for a week in September 2013 on a half board basis.
Before we arrived in Croatia I had a minor issue with our holiday company. I was under the impression that I had booked a sea view but was informed days before we left that the sea room views were fully booked. I was in correspondence with Matea on reception about a taxi transfer and happened to mention my disappointment about not staying in a room with a sea view. She very kindly accommodated us in one of the 'sea views' at the back of the hotel. While we weren't situated adjacent to the sea, we still had a fantastic view encompassing the bay and surrounding countryside (see photo). Matea did a great job and along with the rest of the friendly staff, she helped make our trip even more enjoyable.
We arrived at Hotel Cavtat late at night, long after the dinner service finished. After check in reception arranged for cold meats, salad and breads to be bought to our room which were much appreciated after our weary day of travel. First impressions of the reception area were positive. The hotel presented as very clean and smart. There was a pleasant fresh smell throughout.
Our room was spacious with plenty of storage options and a handy desk. I wasn't too fond of sleeping on two single beds pushed together to make a double, but this was a very minor irritation and the beds were comfortable. The bathroom was perfect for two and the hotel provided good quality toiletries. The balcony was large enough to accommodate a table and chairs which were nice to sit out on in the balmy evenings.
The following morning I was pleased to see that my first impressions of the reception area extended throughout the rest of the hotel. It was smart and spotless throughout. My partner and I ventured down to breakfast whereupon we had a great selection of English and continental options to choose from. We ate breakfast on the terrace right next to the sea and were very pleased with ourselves indeed!
After a day of exploring the sights of Cavtat we returned for our evening meal. There was a wide selection of hot main meals, salads, vegetable side dishes and deserts. My partner and I really enjoyed the food that was on offer throughout our stay. Only one or two dishes were repeated throughout the week so there really was plenty of choice. We could choose to sit inside the restaurant or on the terrace. Occasionally a live band played during dinnertime which was tasteful and good fun.
A lovely aspect of the hotel was rooftop terrace complete with infinity pool. While the sunbeds were great to relax on with a cocktail or two, unfortunately the pool was absolutely freezing. My partner and I dipped our toes in almost every day but on only one occasion did we dare to venture in! It was still beautiful to look at and I'm sure in the baking summer heat, a chilly dip would be most welcome. However we did not miss the pool at all as we swam in the sea every day.
Hotel Cavtat is located in the middle of Cavtat right by the sea. Everything is within a five minute walk. The hotel offers wonderful views of the surrounding natural beauty,
The weather was perfect throughout our stay and I cannot recommend Cavtat enough to other travellers. The beautiful harbour side has a very laid back and sophisticated vibe without being expensive or pretentious. There is much to do in Cavtat and around the Dubrovnik area. My partner and I would love to return for more adventures and would not hesitate to stay at Hotel Cavtat.
