“Lynne G - Fantastic family holiday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

We spent just over a week with our grown-up children at the Importanne Resort in July. We stayed in an apartment in the Royal Palm with a stunning sea view. The rooms were well furnished and very clean. We had a problem with one of the large windows opening onto the balcony (this seems to be a fundamental design fault) but it was dealt with quickly and efficiently. We had a fabulous day with 'Captain Robert' in his boat, Ragusa, visiting several islands and lunching at Hotel Bozica. Our family (7 of us) had the boat to ourselves which was great. Would thoroughly recommend this resort.

My wife and two children aged 6 and 7 stayed at the Royal Princess for 4 nights in mid-August. If you want to stay at a hotel that is top notch with an incredible view of the Adriatic Sea and not too far from the Dubrovnik's Old Town, this is the place. I have stayed at other hotels in the Dubrovnik area but none of these hotels come close to Importanne Resort. The suite we stayed in was not only luxurious and spacious but also had a beautiful view of the sea. The service at La Castile and other restaurants was great. The food at all of the restaurants was incredible. You have the choice of swimming in a fresh water pool, salt water pools or even swimming in the Adriatic Sea. There is also a diving area which can be used to either jump into or dive into the sea. If you want to go to Dubrovnik's Old Town, you can take a cab (we paid 70 Kuna which is the equivalent of 9 Euro) and get to the Old Town in approximately 15 minutes. My family is planning to return to Importanne Resort in the near future.

I only had two nights in Dubrovnik and I am so happy that I spent them at Importanne. The views of the coast line are superb and the patio is excellent for diving into the Adriatic and lounging in the sun. The service was great and very friendly. Dinner at La Castile was excellent and the best meal I had travelling through Croatia. The portions were well sized and the flavours savory. The service at the restaurant was perfect. I will most definitely be returning to Importanne Resort.

I vacationed for a week in Dubrovnik last August with friends and loved every minute of it. We chose to stay at the Importanne Resort because it is one of the few places we could find online in Dubrovnik that has rooms and suites, which was perfect for our group of 7. We didn't regret our decision one bit as the accommodations were spacious, the beds were comfortable, the bathrooms were clean, the towels were plush and the sea view was breathtaking. Another great point is that breakfast is buffet-style and we were able to sit outside on the terrace altogether as a small group next to the sea. We were equally delighted with the buffet-style dinner, which we had five times during our stay as well as the a la carte restaurant Zoe's where we dined twice. We didn't eat at the Old Town, but did visit several times. The Old Town is magical and unique and only a 10-minute taxi ride from the resort. You must walk the walls if you're visiting Dubrovnik and make sure to bring water, suncream and a hat (or something for shade) as it gets hot up there. At night, give the ''hole in the wall'' a try as it's definitely worth the experience. I'll definitely go back to Dubrovnik in the future and will be staying at Importanne Resort again.

I'm generally not a fan of resorts but we were in Dubrovnik with friends and their 2 young daughters so this worked perfectly for us. We stayed at the Royal Palm (a notch down from the Royal Princess) and it was quite nice. The rooms are modern and tidy, albeit some parts a little tired. We had a suite with an adjoining room for the 6 of us. The suite apparently had a kitchenette however this was simply a 2 burner ceramic stove and sink with no crockery, pots or utensils. The microwave was in the cupboard with no connection to power so had to be lifted out and placed on the small bench. Really it was entirely pointless. Other than that no real issues. On site facilities are good, the main pool was a decent size but icy cold water. Even the water in the large indoor spa was tepid. Strange given most resorts heat their pools.The bar was great, and the food and alcohol was very reasonably priced for a resort, so big bonus there. Breakfast was excellent and the quality of food was good. Restaurants on site don't bother with. Go for a 10 minute walk to the local eateries and you'll have a much better experience. Finally, staff are indeed excellent as per the recent reviews - big tick for customer service.

On arrival at the Hotel Reception, we got upgraded from Hotel Ariston to the recently refurbished Royal Princess Hotel which couldnt have been a better start to my 50th celebrations in Dubrovnik. I can only echo the reviews of others here it is an amazing resort and our room (No. 3002) was definitely 5 star luxuriousness - it overlooked the sea and had a lovely balcony with sunbeds, table and chairs for when we wanted to relax and enjoy the sunsets over a glass or two of wine. My husband organised a cake (chocolate) of course! to be brought to the room on my birthday which was beautifully wrapped in cellophane and was extremely gooey and lovely. The food in the Resort was absolutely delicious too. We had dinner in the restaurant one evening out of the 4 we were there and we were spoilt for choice with the variety of food on offer. The breakfast choices in the Royal Princess Hotel are all excellent - anything you asked for was provided. The breakfast fruit platter was truly delicious. The bus (No. 6) into the Old Town is a 5 minute walk from the hotel. You can purchase from the hotel, a three day or a weekly Dubrovnik tourist card will give you 10 or 20 journeys on the buses which is good value as it also allows entry into the museums. Dubrovnik is a wonderful place to visit - a trip in the cable car is a must and a meal in the restaurants in the Old Town is a must do! We went up one of the side streets and came across a fish restaurant - not cheap but it was a great find! We will go back to Croatia maybe to another part but I would recommend Dubrovnik to anyone wanting a long weekend as we did.

Room Tip: If you get upgraded ask for Room 3002 which is the ultimate in luxury - two bathrooms and a lovely l...

Last minute beach getaway with the girls! Booked through Jet2holidays and found a fantastic deal with flights and 7nights B&B. On arrival at the Importanna Resort, we were surprisingly upgraded to their Royal Princess Hotel building - a 5* hotel, which was truly luxurious. The staff could not have been kinder and more welcoming. The hotel was spotless and beautifully decorated. The location was supreme, and the facilities provided were more than enough! The breakfast buffet was amazing - a whole spread of different foods ranging from cooked english breakfast to bread/cheese/meat to miso soup, with coffee and juice "on tap". The a la carte menus, whilst slightly pricey, were totally worth it, with a fantastic menu on offer and a wonderful atmosphere. I could not rate it more highly.
The day trips that they offer seem to come with a bit of a surplus charge and I would advise shopping around. But to be honest, the area (Lapad) and even just the beach within the hotel, is enough to provide a fantastic week of fresh fish, cocktails and a relaxing holiday in the sun on the beach.
The only area with room for improvement (if I have to be critical!) is the air con in the rooms - it doesn't get that cold, and therefore it can be quite warm at night. If you like to almost freeze, perhaps bear this in mind.
