“Don't eat on resort!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2011

Resort fab and very clean with very helpful staff,pure luxuryMust admit though, we were surprised about the cost of eating on the resort. We felt that it would be like Italy where eating out would be full of good quality food at reasonable prices. This was not what we found to be the case here ,nearly £80 for a very basic lunch.reasonable supermarket helped. We went to a number of places off resort e.g nearby Orsan fish restaurant on staff recommendation and found it lovely but expensive with a limited menu. The best by far and local gem was KONOBA HILL in nearby Trsteno ,less than £ 10 return by cab.small,fab food and service ,a real find.Great meat and fish and an undiscovered ambiance.

The hotel was really nice and modern.
We stayed in a junior suite who has all the amenities needed.
The best thing, for us, was a "not allowed under 16" swimming-pool. During the summer you have a lot of families and it's really nice to have a pool only for adults, where you can swim without avoiding inflattable tube.
The breakfast was nice, with a lot of choice.

Room Tip: The junior suite was really nice

From the first moment, we came to the Hotel Resort, we had the feeling, that we are in a kind of wonderland! Although we were to early, we could use all the pleasures of the hotel area until our apartment was ready. It is a very wonderful and with a lot of heart made area, with three outdoor pools, a beach resort, a shopping and a restaurant mile, a spa and and and. . .
The apartment was great!
. . .and, the most important: EVERYBODY, who is working there, was so friendly and realy read our needs and wishes up from our eyes!
My favorite was Jelena Hajdic, who was, every time she was working and I need an information, very competent, serious, so friendly and could help every time in any way!
After one week beeing there we were complete relaxed, our skin was wonderful brown of the sun and our son (at the age of 14 years) was also satisfied!
Thanks to all for this wonderful time!!!!!

Excellent Hotel and Resort for families and couples who are looking for a relaxing break in luxurious surroundings. The hotel and resort have everything you need to enjoy a relaxing holiday with loads of facilities in an excellent beautiful resort. We stayed in a 2 bedroomed apartment which was spacious and furnished to a high standard. We stayed half-board, the breakfast selection was excellent and had everything you could imagine. Dinner had limited choice of food but it was all excellent quality and if you're not a fussy eater you will find something to enjoy. Some reviews say the resort is expensive but it is 5 star so you expect to pay a little more but you do get excellent quality food and wine. The hotel provided a shuttle bus which goes to the Old Town, it cost £7.00 return (half-price for children) but for this you get a luxury vehicle with air-conditioning, chauffer (care-full driver) who drove direct to the old town and return to the hotel. There is a local bus which passes the hotel - stops at numerous stops, you're not guaranteed a seat and you save little money. The staff at the hotel were helpful and professional and a credit to the hotel. i would recommend this hotel to anyone wishing to enjoy a luxury break in a beautiful resort within easy reach of the old town. There is a cake shop just outside the resort selling a huge selection of freshly baked cakes for less than £1 each - the best cakes ever!!

Dear Guest,
Thanks for this very objective review. We are certainly pleased that you found almost everything meeting your expectations for a 5-star resort, but at the same time somewhat disappointed that we did not meet these expectations in terms of the buffet dinner. Our goal is for the dinner offering to be of the same quality as that provided in all of our other 7 restaurants, and we’re pleased that you found this to be the case. Additionally we work hard to ensure a good variety of meals for parents and children alike to enjoy, so we shall include your comments when we next do our review of the buffet meals to help add some more creativity and ‘spice’ to complement high quality standards achieved.
Kind regards,
Zdenko Leko.

Great new rooms, balcony view of the sea, nice pools and bars. Only downside is too much concrete and rocky beach.

Dear Guest,
Thanks for your short and sharp review. I am delighted to conclude from it that all of the things over which we have control met or exceeded your expectations, and only the few that we cannot reasonably influence were downsides. Jokes aside, we spend considerable resources each year to make our pebble beach one of the better beaches in and around Dubrovnik, and for those used to sandy beaches we also offer convenient boat transfers to the nearby sandy beach on the island of Lopud.
Best wishes,
Zdenko Leko.

Had a brilliant stay at this hotel in August. We stayed in a deluxe room. Absolutely gorgeous views, nice balcony with sunbeds, great bathroom.

The many swimming pools are all brilliant, again with awesome views over the sea. All have an adjoining bar, and there is a separate adults only pool too.

The hotel has a nice a spa with a Pool/Jacuzzi/Sauna/Hydrotherapy etc. This is free to use. Although treatments are charged.

The service overall was fine. I did get the feeling that many of the staff are newly hired youngsters. They were always polite and ready to help.

Food was the one area where we had mixed experiences:
- The hotel has many restaurants. Some are within the main block, some are in the "Market Place" by the residences.
- The breakfast was just about ok. A very decent spread, but somewhat lacking in quality (the bacon too smelly, the hot food not kept warm etc.)
- The market place restaurants are cheaper and just about ok.
- The finest restaurant (Tartufso) serves Croatian food and wine for dinner. The food, wine and service here are all excellent. Highly recommended.

Note - the adjoining Dubrovnik Sun Gardens residences are also under the same management, and some of the reviews below seem to be of these residences/apartments. We stayed at the hotel, and absolutely loved it.


Tips for your visit:
* A visit to the Dubrovnik old town is a must. You could take the boat shuttle from the hotel (75 Kunas/head each way). I'd recommend you take the boat one way, and take a taxi back from the old town (160-180 kunas). The taxi is more comfortable and quicker, and you get to choose when you want to go back. The old town is brilliant at night. For food, "Restaurant Dubrovnik" on Marojice Kaboge here is superb.

* The hotel might not be easily located on a SatNav and is wrongly placed on Google Maps. Use these co-ordinates instead: 42.696713, 18.018866‎ (+42° 41' 48.17", +18° 1' 7.92"). The exit you need to look out for says "Dubrovnik Sun Gardens" (in Croatian)

* If you are debating whether to rent a car for your entire stay in Dubrovnik, or if you just need a car for a day or two - the hotel has car rental available, and is somewhat reasonable (probably a lot cheaper than at the airport). The roads around this area are great, very scenic too. I'd recommend a drive to Prapratno beach on the Peljesac peninsula (50mins); or further down to Orebic (1hr 40mins).

* Do visit the cable car which takes you from right outside the old town to the top of Srd Hill. You can actually drive all the way up there too (program your Satnav for a village called Bosanka). The road is quite narrow and steep but easily doable if you are confident driver. There are enough passing points for traffic coming the other way.
