We had a wonderful 10 day break in Lapad. It is a quiet and relaxing area but well placed for catching the bus to the old city. There are a number of good reasonably priced restaurants and a fairly large, well stocked supermarket. The walk around the peninsula is lovely and the views are stunning. From Lapad it was a...

excellent place to stay in dubrovnik, instead of the old city. Bus to the city rides every 10 min. the place is less crowded and easy to reach with luggage

We are a group of middle aged men who enjoy an annual weekend away, which involves drinking and bonding. This destination did not disappoint and caters brilliantly for both groups and couples. Lapad has so much charm and I can imagine at the height of the season would be fantastic. The locals appear to like the English and one of... More

Lapad has some lovely hotels and the port. We based ourselves there as its only a few kms outside of the old city which I should imagine will get very hot in the summer. Public transport is excellent to take you to the old city or to any of the surrounding places. There are also lots of cafes and restaurants... More

great place for hotels, accomadation, restaurants and bars, but there is a lot of redevelopment going on at thee moment and it would be worthwhile asking the question before you go. did not cause us any problems but one particular site next to the beach was working all night 24/7

I felt very fortunate to have selected my accommodation here. It's just a short bus ride to the old town but to get back here to the peace and serenity is much better than being amongst all those tourists!

We stayed in Lapad for 6 nights, and I would encourage anyone staying in the Dubrovnik area to do the same if you are staying more than 2 nights. It's a 5 to 10 minute bus ride from Lapad to Dubrovnik's Pile Gate on the #6 bus at 12 Kunar each. You can then fight the tourist and cruise line... More

So fake we didn't stay here and booked an apartment near the old town. Thought it was pretty much a dump, walked through and got the first bus back into Dubrovnik! There are some beautiful villas aside the promenade but can't imagine coming here and spending a week in the height of the summer. Reminded me of a run down... More

We went to Croatia some years ago (prior to 2014). However, the hotel we reserved, near Dubrovnik, summarily closed the week before we were to arrive. So we contacted the airline, whose tour department we used, about the emergency problem. They responded quickly and got us into a hotel just a day before we departed for Croatia. What is the...
