One week into our holiday I have decided to write this review. We have booked a 2 week holiday staying at the Croatia Hotel in Cavtat.
The choice of hotel is perfect for our needs. We are very happy with the hotel, its location and facilities. Its a beautiful place to stay, with a nice swimming pool, gym and great massage parlour & beauty salon. Cavtat is also a very picturesque town and having visited Dubrovnik I am glad that we chose to stay here instead. Dubrovnik was too hectic and busy for a relaxing holiday and Cavtat has a much more relaxed atmosphere. Dubrovnik was a great place to visit as a side trip. We took a boat trip from Cavtat to Dubrovnik for 80Kn return. Cavtat has a great selection of bars and restaurants and overall the quality, service and value of the food has been excellent.
Ok now the Negatives:-
Smoking in the Bars and Restaurants:
All the tables and seating are outside and there is no policy about smoking here, except for indoors. Its a free for all. Whats the problem you might ask - your sat outside. Well, the tables and seating at the restaurants are very closely arranged. Our experience was that on any one evening we would be sitting next to one or more tables with smokers puffing away like steam engines. This has just about ruined every evening we have had dining out in Cavtat. There is absolutely no consideration given to non smokers who wish to enjoy their food and drink without being intoxicated by the stench of secondhand cigarette smoke. On most nights it has been intolerable. It has been completely disgusting to eat our food surrounded by ignorant selfish smokers, who have to indulge in their filthy habit in the restaurants. Therefore, I cannot recommend Cavtat as a place to take your pregnant wife or your children if you wish to dine in a smoke free environment. I would like to recommend that the restaurants of Cavtat give consideration to this problem and provide smoking areas which are properly separated from those of us who want to eat our food in as clean air environment.
I'm sorry to say there are a lot of ignorant tourists. I find it such a shame that people cannot put their litter in bins. During this holiday I experienced litter floating in the bathing areas because people cannot clean up after themselves. Plastic bags, bottles, cigarrette packets and butts discarded on and around the beach fronts. What was particularly frustrating is that Cavtat provides a good number of bins so there is no excuse. Come on people respect and look after the environments of the places you visit.
