“5 Star Potential”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2013

Stayed here recently with a friend and I have to say that the hotel surpassed my expectations. Away from the bustle of Dubrovnik you can hop on one of the buses which pick up from hotel every ten minutes and be where it is all happening!
We had a reasonably sized room which had all the usual amenities and was invariably quiet despite the fact that the hotel is used by lots of tour operators with people checking in and out regularly.
The hotel is situated such that you really do have the most amazing views of the coastline, mountains and islands opposite. The gardens are beautifully tended with water features and whilst we were there they were making improvements to the surroundings.
Staff are really helpful ( thank you Marco for arranging for us to keep our room after checkout) and also to the concierge for really useful tips including times to avoid in the Old Town due to cruise ships calling in.
Breakfasts are very good with omelettes and eggs cooked to order. The evening buffet is not so adventurous and could maybe be spiced up but the food was plentiful and we were always greeted with a smile. There is an a la carte restaurant which once we had checked prices we wish we had tried. However, there is a myriad of restaurants to experience in Dubrovnik.
Pleased to say that we did not suffer any sun bed nonsense and the clientele was truly mixed which was great.
My only criticism would be that the indoor pool should be reserved at certain times as adult only. The layout is definitely for relaxation but invariably it was being used by young teenagers- I don't object to that- but not all the time.
We had a fabulous time and I would certainly consider a return to the hotel and this wonderful area.

Room Tip: Book a room with a balcony and sea view.

Beautiful hotel. Comfortable beds, immaculate rooms. Friendly staff. Amazing sunset views from the bar in the evening. Great breakfast. Plenty of sun beds available around pool area. Did not use the bus to the old town, got taxi instead, €10 euro. Would highly recommend this hotel.

This hotel enhances the experience of traveling in Croatia - well appointed, good views, nice rooms. All the amenities a traveler wants are there - terrace with amazing views, swimming pool, good food both in the cafe and in the restaurant, gracious service. The best way to wind up a busy day is to watch the sunset on the terrace, while listening to the live band playing covers. This hotel is preferred by tour groups -it can be somewhat crowded at breakfast, so plan accordingly.
The only drawback of Lacroma is that it is far away ( not within walking distance) from the Old Town. There is a bus service, but at times the buses can be very crowded.

Dear Guests
Thank you very much on a most encouraging and motivating review. It “enhances” our day to read of such positive experience from our guests. We discuss our guests’ reviews daily with our management and staff and it means a great deal to all of us to have our guests’ appreciation. Yes, as you kindly point out we are a large hotel and even in the high season have a few groups in house so to avoid busy times for breakfast it is best to come a little later when most of the groups have left for the day on tours. Thank you once again and we hope to be able to greet you in Lacroma on another occasion for some more unwinding on the terrace with sunsets and music playing in the background.

Yours sincerely

This was our first time in Croatia it was our 30th wedding anniversary so I wanted it to be special so I picked the hotel valamar lacroma after looking at all the good reviews it had leading up to booking it. The hotel was even better than I expected everything was perfect from the room with the sea view, Buffet breakfast and evening meal with loads to choose from, the staff are outstanding in all areas nothing is too much trouble for them. The Babin kuk area of Croatia is an amazing place to visit I defiantly will be returning next year thank you for a great time Ian Bentley

We have just spend a week here and it's great. It's a Spa hotel very reasonable priced. You have 2 pools, a cute beach at the sister hotel 2 minutes away, lots of space, great selection for breakfast and dinner, a local bus ride away from the old town. Nice.

Awesome hotel! High quality service, friendly personel, great pools, spas. If you want to have summer of your life then you should come here. The coolness of the place is amazing. You could see that everyone was really relaxed and had nice time. People are coming here from all the world and that just shows what kind of quality there is in this hotel. The nature surronding this place is the best there is. Beaches, streets, mountains, restaurants, tennis courts, you name it. The food is really good, there are lots of croatian and dalmatian specialties, just take your pick. If you want to go to the city the buss is not far away and its just couple of meters from the hotel.

Further more, the hotel is situated in nice nature so you don't get any fumes from cars and other stuff. Personel is very well organized and if you need something they are there right away to help you. The rooms are clean and nice, there is aircondition, internet, phone and everything. This hotel is perfect for me with its high standard and quality.
