We have just returned after a wonderful week in Dubrovnik,and the Uvala satisfied all our needs as a hotel.Though I would agree that the Uvala does not merit being classed as 4-star,for example it lacks a proper lounge,we personally could not fault our stay here.We usually use 3-star hotels in Croatia,most of these have been very good,but decided to upgrade to a 4-star.Booking with Thomson,we paid only a small supplement for a sea-view and paid only £60 more than we did for a 3-star in Dubrovnik in May this year.We were lucky enough to get a room on the top floor,giving us a simply stunning view over Uvala Lapad and up the Kolocepski Kanal to the islands and mountains.Though the room decor could do with brightening up,everything was very clean,towels changed daily.Room was spacious,as was bathroom and balcony,beds comfortable.Any noise from traffic did not disturb our sleep.I appreciated the bonus of shaving-mirror and safe(free of charge) for valuables.Quality of food was very good,though choice was not as great as in some larger Croatian hotels(to be expected in a hotel of only 51 rooms).The Uvalas small size actually gave it a more friendly and intimate feel!I actually liked the hotels exterior,which I believe is local limestone and not concrete!We could not fault the staff,always helpful,friendly and courteous.I must give thanks particularly to waitresses Marina and Paula,and Mario on reception.As for location,so easy to get around by local buses,the number 4 very close to the hotel and the 6 about 15 minutes away going to Dubrovnik old town.As the hotel faces north,there was no direct sunshine reaching our room,but to enjoy the sun,just go to the beaches on either side of the bay,Uvala Lapad,so close to the hotel.Did not use the pool,as the sea is much warmer.This was our 4th visit to Dubrovnik-we keep returning as there is so much to do and see here!Did not use Thomsons own trips as its so much cheaper using a local operator-most of the fish picnics available are very good value.Yes,though I agree that the Uvala may be limited compared with a true,large 4 -star,this did not in any way impair our enjoyment of a wonderful holiday.In my opinion,Croatia has an unbeatable combination of beautiful scenery,lovely old towns,history and culture,lovely beaches(though most are of pebbles rather than sand),and beautifully-clean and clear seas.As the weather was excellent,the lack of a lounge or gardens was not a handicap to us,we were usually out early and back late.
