For a good number of years we have stayed at 4/5 star modern hotels with all facilities and the self service buffets. How would we adapt to a small (boutique) hotel?
The hotel is a 10 minute taxi ride from the airport (100 kuna) and there is some aircraft noise in town but not that much traffic. The hotel is right in the centre of town (pedestrianised - most of the time!). Our room at the front was a fair size with a bathroom with a large bath (and shower). The air conditioning was very effective (with the window shut this deadened the church bells at 6am. and the road sweeper noise). There is an outside seating area on the first floor overlooking local residences. There is also a small covered area on the second floor (2 tables). Breakfast was served in the veranda at the front of the hotel.There was a waitress service for coffee, tea, toast and hot food. We eat at the hotel in the evening (half board) in the restaurant across the road (Dalmacija). The choice wasn't as extensive as the 'external' menu but I managed to have a different starter and main course for the week that we were there. It was all waiter service. There was a good wine list of local Croatian wines at fair prices. The quality of the food was very good.
The town of Cavtat is very pretty. There is a promenade from where the local boats leave for Dubrovnic (40/50 minutes costing 80 kuna return, the bus takes around 30 minutes) and local islands. A good mixture of boats moor up in the evening. There is a good choice of restaurants (although the menus are very similar), and bars on the front. There are walks all around the horeshoe bay. There a no beaches, but you can hire a sun bed (30 kuna) at a number of locations around the bay and the crystal clear waters are fine to swim in, in marked areas.
This is how hotels used to be and the service was impeccable. However, we did miss the facilites of a large modern hotel.
