“Excellent choice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

Great location with easy access to old town and yet a 15 minute walk away to avoid the crowds. If not interested in walking, there is also a van shuttle or a water taxi that has almost hourly transit to old town. The rooms are beautifully appointed and ours had a terrace with a spectacular view of the sea. I found the mattress too hard although others say it is comfortable. The staff is wonderfully friendly and helpful. Food and drinks are good but VERY expensive. There is a pool, a "beach" with rocky access to the sea, chaises in various locations, and many lovely sitting areas inside and outside.

We've been to some of the top hotels in Dubrovnik and left with very positive experiences - friendly and professional services, great views, nice food...

However, Villa Dubrovnik takes the experience one step further. It provides you with a sense of belonging and mutuality. Staff pays attention to your preferences and it seems service subtly adjusts to your needs on daily basis - they observed what we liked to eat, drink, do, and made efforts to provide us with suitable options that we perhaps did not consider.

Information on Dubrovnik's hidden gems and events were delivered timely and staff was really interested in what we had seen and offered additional suggestions on these basis (staff knew we are not new to Dubrovnik and still made effort).

Boat rides to the old city were arranged perfectly, as conveniently as we needed and alternative transport options were suggested in a case we have a spontaneous change of mind during the evening in the old city. A walk is not a problem either, entrance to the city is about 5 minutes away.

Design is tailor made to comfort. It resonates warmth and taste, just as you would expect in a well cared for home, where you want to make everyone at ease.

Rooms are cozy, ideal for peaceful rest. Luxury does not burst into your face, the hotel impress with subtle sophistication and empathy. We felt rooms are furnished to make us feel as we were designing the setting to our tastes and preferences.

Menu seemed well balanced. We felt sorry not to enjoy more of the offerings, especially dining at the terrace overlooking the Dubrovnik. If breakfast is your thing - do not skip it.

Overall, Villa Dubrovnik is a combination of comfort, warmth, friendliness, tailor made to your liking. It is a place you can really rest in and refresh all your senses.

We just absolutely loved this hotel!! The rooms are beautifully designed to completely enjoy the breathtaking view. The bed was just so comfortable. I cannot say enough about everyone who helped make our stay so wonderful!!! Ivana at the spa gave me one of the best massages I have ever had. The beach could not have been more charming. The Vaporetto was very charming to get to the Old City, but it was also an easy 10 minute walk to get there too. We would stay here the next time we come back!

Having never been to Dubrovnik, I researched many of the reviews and almost settled on several of the other choices. I'm very glad I didn't. The hotel is very clean, modern and has amazing views from many of the rooms and the restaurants. As far as the photos go, I would say they are much more accurate than I've come across in the past. The hotel is only a 15 minute walk from the old town, but a very nice boat is provided to get there complimentary from the hotel (or a shuttle if the sea gets too choppy, which it tended to do in the late afternoon). When i was researching, I debated trying to stay either in or next to the old town, but I would say that's a mistake. It can get very crowded in the old town (especially when cruise ships are in town) and you will appreciate a quiet retreat to return to. As for the restaurant, there are several tables that are prime and if you indicate which you want to reserve, they are happy to do so. Service was impeccable and every time we indicated we wanted the room made up, it usually was within the hour. There is a small beach area as well as an indoor pool with food and drink service. Overall, an excellent experience and would stay here again as my first choice.

Room Tip: most have direct sea views, but some have old town views as well. you will see amazing sunsets if y...

The hotel is situated close to the old city- a mere 10 min walk. Close enough to explore easily but away from the crush of tourists from the cruise ships. A complimentary hotel boat also does hourly runs to the harbour for those not keen on walking.

The room was clean and had all necessary amenities. A roof top bar the perfect setting to watch the sun fall behind the city walls.

Prices in the hotel were steep,with both food and drinks expensive.

The Villa Dubrovnik is in a lovely and quiet location just a 10 minute boat ride from Dubrovnik. The food and service in the restaurants is of excellent quality and the waiters very friendly. We were a little disappointed by the prosciutto/wine bar which only served one type of prosciutto although advertised several different kinds. We would have liked that other light dishes/salads or tapas be offered there but were not. The physical structure of the beachfront is poor, with many different platforms of various shapes and sizes, not always level and sometimes difficult to access with no steps. They have a first-row policy on the beach front which means that the loungers next to the sea can only be had for a charge of 35 euros. This is most unfortunate as most guests refuse to pay the extra charge and this means that most of the lounge chairs in the front remain empty. We stayed here twice for 4 days within a 2 week time frame and both times we had a chilly reception. However, Roberto the baggage-handler was exceptionally helpful and friendly both times we checked in.

Room Tip: Upper floors for the best view.

Dear LesleyLI.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review following your visit this summer in our Villa. I was delighted to read that you enjoyed the atmosphere and quality in our restaurant. I truly regret for your experience that you had in our prosciutto/wine bar . We present some type of proscuitto on our bar , daily offer , but you can order everything from the menu. I will immediatly review your comments with my team and make sure that those things not happen in the future.
Your kind words received on the service in the restaurant are also much appreciated, and I look forward to sharing them with the team.

Regarding the sun loungers charge of 35€ , we did this when we had a full hotel occupancy in order to provide the exclusive use of the first row since not everyone can have it at the same time. Moreover , the special food and beverage treatment has been provided to each one of them who used it for 25€ For next summer we will find the best solution for the beach club and how to provide the experience of it.
Thank you one more time and I sincerely hope that we will have the pleasure of welcoming you back soon.


Warm regards,

A beautiful hotel with great views from every room. The food was very, very Tasty and service in the restaurant great. you will struggle to find better views than from the restaurant and sky bar. the complimentary transfers in the boat is also great. The lobster holding tank in the main restaurant really bothered me a lot- I felt it was out of place. Service was generally good- my only complaint would be the lack of service at beach and pool.

The rooms were spacious and well furnished. All and all- a good hotel. Drinks and food are quite expensive though.
