Dubrovnik Palace IS out of the way. On the one hand that's a good thing because you get uninterrupted views of the Adriatic and it also means a restful night's sleep. On the other hand, it does mean you can't just 'pop out' for a meal in the old town for instance as its quite a distance away. The major plus is the local bus ends and starts its route right outside the hotel and takes you to the old town. You can buy bus tickets from reception.
I agree with some of the reviewers here on the hotel staff. Some were absolutely lovely but reception in particular could do with a personality transplant. They weren't rude but they did not smile nor welcome us which for a 5 star hotel is the least to be expected.
Back to the actual hotel, the panoramic views from the bar are amazing - the bar and it's staff were also good. Every room has a balcony and a view of the sea which is breathtaking to wake up to. The rooms are pretty small but clean and well laid out.
Breakfast in the main restaurant was excellent and the chefs and staff there were very nice, helpful and friendly.
The hotel has a really nice outdoor pool as well as a heated indoor pool and spa. There are several restaurants too.
Ignoring the reception staff I would return for a short break at the Dubrovnik Palace just to pamper myself in the spa and I would also recommend it to others.
