“Third time's a charm!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2011

This is our third stay at Castelletto - first was in 2005 under the original British owners, second was in 2009 after it had been sold on and now again in June 2011. The basic rules remain - a lovely clean, small, quiet hotel in the beautiful village of Cavtat about 10 miles south of Dubrovnik. A small plunge pool has been added and there has been a slight reworking of the dining spaces to allow for breakfast outdoors under the shade of a giant magnolia tree, the staff are different but remain friendly, attentive and helpful. The rooms are compact but the solid wooden furniture purchased by the original owners is standing the test of time and if anything is getting better with age. The property would benefit from a coat of paint on the outside and a freshening up of the green painted wooden areas, but overall it doesn't affect the quality of your stay there. It's proximity to Cavtat and the ability to jump on a 25 min ferry to Dubrovnik old town makes this hotel the perfect location to enjoy the beauty of the Croatian coastline without having to pay the extra sums for accommodation within Dubrovnik itself.

Lovely small hotel hotel with beautiful views of Cavtat sea and mountains. Situated above Cavtat town, 5 mins walk down hill, 10-15 mins uphill, though perfectly manageable, alternatively one bus stop out of town on regular Dubrovnik bus route. Small swimming pool a bonus after walk uphill on a hot day. Although no hairdryer in room, easily available from reception. Lovely breakfast, good selection for a small hotel, on quieter days we were lucky enough to have breakfast of our choice cooked personally for us. Tea and instant coffee available, but staff will make fresh, any type of coffee. Airport transfer at no charge. All staff very friendly and helpful, nothing too much trouble.

After staying at 4 lovely hotels travelling around Croatia, we were not impressed with Hotel Castelletto, in a very poor position, badly laided out, with very small bedrooms,you could hardly get around the bed when your cases were on the floor, no hairdryer, that all other hotels had provided in the bedrooms, no fresh coffee pot available at breakfast , but instant, and the most expensive rate we paid, being the same price from May 1st through to the end of September!,also only place requiring full payment before arrival,so no option of leaving! Oh, and a pool to small to swin in!

Hotel Castelletto is well situated a short walk from the town. Don't be put off by comments about distance from the town or the steep walk. While its not for the lazy it helps walk off the excellent dinners to be found in Cavtat. You can catch a bus if need be from about 50 metres away. There is some aircraft noise but not causing a disturbance. Being only 13 rooms it's easy to make conversation and share experiences with other guests. The week we were there it was full all the time - a good sign. The staff are brilliantly helpful, everywhere is sparkling clean, all in all warmly recommended

Great stay, very friendly and helpful staff, very comfortable beds, stiff walk up the hill from Cavtat.

PS re: one other posting, one can get 'proper' coffee in the morning just by asking

After travelling along the coast of Croatia for 2 weeks, we decided to stay in Cavtat before flying out of Dubrovnik (it's 10 mins from the airport). It was one of the best decisions we made and Hotel Castelletto made for a great ending to our trip. The staff was so helpful (the airport shuttle even saw us and picked us up while we were walking back to the hotel from walking around Cavtat).

Great service, wonderful rooms, cute pool and a great, quiet environment. Perfection.
