Stayed at Hotel Orphee, Plat about 12km from Dubrovnik. Only a 3* hotel but definitely 4* treatment. Friendly and helpful staff who all spoke very good English. Room, with view of mountain and the sea, was spotlessly clean and air-conditioned with pleasant en-suite bathroom and comfortable beds. Need to be fit to stay at the resort as there are a lot of stairs and no lift in the hotel, although it is only 3 floors so not too bad. It is set in very pleasant gardens on various levels. The beaches are pebble rather than sandy, which is standard for Croatia. It has a good-sized sea water swimming pool which sits on a raised area which juts out into the sea, so there is a 180 degree panoramic view of the sea and coastline. Could have done with a few more sunbeds and parasols at busy times, but on the whole the pool experience was very good. The food was good with plenty of choices for all tastes and prices for wine and drinks on the complex were very reasonable (on a par with most bars and restaurants rather than rip off hotel prices) and there was a lovely taverna overlooking the sea where you could have dinner for an extra 76 Kuna. The entertainment was low key with various musical groups playing for dinner and then at the pool bar or the lovely little beach bar which also had BBQ nights with tables set out on the beach. Dubrovnik was a wonderful place to visit, although it could get very hot up on the city wall, so best to go early or late in the day, and there is a cable car which takes you up above the city to get fabulous views. I would also recommend visiting Cavtat which is close to the airport. It has pretty harbours and plenty of nice bars, restaurants and souvenir shops. One day we got the boat there and another day we travelled by the very good local buses. There were also self-catering apartments in blocks around the complex which people appeared to be very happy with, although we did not see inside them personally.
