“Great place to relax”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013 via mobile

The Lapad hotel is situated in a very quiet part of Lapad. The view from the sea side rooms is amazing, you got everything Croatia has to offer right there- mountains, sea , boats , sunshine...
The service is excellent and everyone is very kind and very helpful- nothing to say there.
The room we stayed in was a bit small, and the privacy in the bathroom wasn't ideal but nothing too bad. Bed was comfy, lighting well placed, electricity plugs, fast Internet...
The pool is very nice, yet busy, and unfortunately you are not welcome to have a drink while sun baking.
Breakfast in very complete and a lot of choices are available- not all of it is the best quality product, but definitely above average.

We had a great holiday at hotel Lapad, It has a relaxed atmosphere and helpful friendly staff,our room was spotless we never heard any noise from the other rooms apart from the doors which close heavily. All public areas were spotless at all times, The pool area was clean with plenty of towels we never had a problem getting a sun bed, the bar prices were higher than the local pubs but you expect that. There was a very good choice of food at breakfast & dinner and always plenty of it the only little gripe was it could be hotter ( loved the pancakes each morning with the delicious fruit compote) the staff in the restaurant were very efficient and helpful as were all the staff. I dont think i would take children here but others may disagree. The bus which stops outside the hotel is very handy. Dubrovnik is a great place, we also visited Cavtat which we loved it was idyllic. The hotel has good internet access.I would recommend the Hotel Lapad.

This hotel is excellent - good food- nice friendly staff. Good location. Room spotlessly clean, plenty of toiletries. When you come to Croatia bring plenty of cash, they don't seem to like credit cards for trips etc. three island boat trip very good, pick up outside hotel.
Would recommend this hotel and location to anyone.

Hotel Lapad was lovely and the staff were all very friendly and accommodating, The Lapad area is lovely and the hotel is right on the harbour so has gorgeous views, there are plenty of restaurants close by and we eat in a couple of them whilst there we also found the restaurants in the Old Town to be quite reasonable so long as you stay off the main street. On our final evening and on the recommendation of one our day trip guides we ate at restaurant Mimoza just up the road from Pile gate they cook traditional Croation food and it was excellent. I would definately recommend both the city and the hotel.

Room Tip: We were in room 29 very spacious and had everything we needed for a plesent stay, this was a delux r...

We stayed here during the second week of August for 4 nights as we were attending a wedding. The location, staff, rooms, food and general facilities were all excellent but it was very frustrating that there was a complete lack of sun loungers. This was very frustrating as there was plenty of room for many more. Guests at the hotel could sun bathe next to the pool or in a walled area near to the pool. The walled area had lots of space and could easily have accommodated a lot more sun loungers. This would make it so much more relaxing for guests as it was the usual rush before breakfast to try to reserve a lounger and if you missed out you would have to sit on a chair!!

On a more positive note, I have to say the breakfast was excellent and the staff were very helpful, friendly and couldn't do enough for you.

Dear KittyKent,

Thank you very much for your positive feedback.
We appreciate your comments about excellent breakfast and very helpful and friendly staff.
It's lovely to read they all ensured you enjoyable stay.
We regret you were let down by the lack of sunbeds in high season. Hotel Lapad is a city hotel, not a resort so we have small pool and garden area with limited number of sunbeds.
It's interesting that majority of our clients prefer sitting and relaxing by the pool than going on the beach that's within walking distance.

We hope you will come back again on your next visit to Dubrovnik.

Kind regards,

Katica

We spent 3 nights in Hotel Lapad. It was perfect for my husband and I. We were also traveling with my daughter and friend who are in their early 20's.
We were very happy with the accommodation. It had fantastic breakfasts, excellent internet (not so in many Croatian places we stayed in), friendly staff, the rooms were a reasonable size and everything was clean. The location was good, it was near some great restaurants and walks. It is about a 20 minute walk from the old city, or you can take a bus which stops almost outside the hotel door.
My daughter and friend felt that the place was set up for older customers and families with young children. they felt a bit like outsiders.

Thoroughly enjoyed our 3 day stay at Hotel Lapad from the friendly greeting to the friendly, professional goodbye. Our room was on the 6th floor with a balcony and facing the sea, what a view, just lovely. Loved the modern room and bathroom, toiletries were replenished every day and room was spotlessly clean. It was no hassle to change elevators, took just a couple of a minutes to walk from one elevator to another with your bags, without bags easy to use the lovely stairwell from the 1st floor.
Breakfast was very good, plenty of variety, something for everyone. We had dinner at the Hotel on our last night, sitting outside by the Pool listening to live music which was very pleasant, unfortunately the meal did not live up to everything else at the hotel, both our meals were over cooked, I had chicken Breast which was very dry even with a sauce and my husband's fish dish was also over cooked, however, our bottle of wine was very nice.
Hotel has the local bus stopping outside which was excellent for getting into Old-town.
Would definitely recommend the hotel and would love to return one day.
