Although we were in Lapad preseason and only a few restaurants were open, these were to be found inviting and agreeable. The shops were also closed until a few weeks time. The area is clean and very well looked after, highlighting once again, the proud people of Dubrovnik. Only 15 minutes by bus to the Old Town - buses running... More

Find a some big flat stones along the side of the beach, away from the crowds, and enjoy the tranquility. You'll need a bit of courage (or gel sea shoes) to get into the sea but it's worth it; cool and clear water, perfect for a swim before returning to your book. But don't forget to slap-on the sunscreen -... More

We stayed in Hotel Uvala where we overlooked the bay at Lapad. There in March/April, it was dead. No one around other than hotel workers preparing for the tourist season. Although the lovely pebble beach was ideal being walking distance from the hotel, there was again, quite a bit of rubbish about, including a shopping trolley in the bay! Didn't... More

Stayed here twice, once on our first trip to Dubrovnik and the second when we married at Grand Villa Argentina. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The hotel and the rooms are very clean, contemporary and light

We stayed a fortnight in Lapad (Uvala hotel, see separate review),it is in an ideal situation to visit Dubrovnik, 5 minute bus ride. There are some very nice restaurants for food or just a drink and people watch! Visit the Cave Bar, really different.

Beautiful bay and beautiful view from the hotel More. Max 10mins stroll along the promenade through the local park to the bus stop for the Old City. Take the number 6 bus and buy your ticket at the bus stop - very convenient. Otherwise nothing much about Lapad. The shopping centre near the bus stop is disappointing.

Stayed in Lapad area for one week, found it quiet, friendly, unspoilt. Lovely walk around the bay toward Babin Kuk, passing rocky swimming areas, the cave bar and stunning views. The cafes and bars along the 'promenade' ( pedestrianised area leading up from the beach) are great to chill and people watch. Went in October, weather wall to wall blue... More

This is a pleasant area outside of the main city to walk around and explore. It is a lovely place to sit and contemplate, either at one of the many bars or restaurants or to just to swim, sunbathe and simply chill out and relax
