We stayed in this hotel at the end of May. We were booked in to the Neptune and stayed there for 3 nights. The weather had been terrible before arriving meaning 2 of the 4 pools were out of use for a few days. With a four year old daughter we had booked this hotel for the pools. The operations manager was very sympathetic so upgraded us to the Royal Princess which was great.
The Royal Princess was beautiful. Only a couple of years old, it was immaculate. The rooms were spacious and very tastefully decorated. The double bed was huge. We had a suite with a double bedroom and living room with a sofa bed and small kitchen off. The balcony was really special. Go for a top floor if you can. The balcony had a glass wall so your view of the sea is completely uninterrupted.
My husband regularly used the gym which he said was good. The outdoor pools (shared with the Neptune) are pretty cold so we often used the indoor pool with our daughter. Having an indoor pool was a real bonus.
The staff in the restaurants and bar were really warm and friendly. In fact, all the Croatians we met on holiday seemed to be really friendly.
The hotel shares facilities with the Neptune as part of the Importanne resort. The breakfast was very good, as was the buffet evening meal. The outside snack bar also served good food.
When we arrived at this hotel and the outdoor pools were damaged I originally thought I had made a bad choice - the hotel and resort is on the Babin Kuk peninsula so it is very exposed. However, I later realised it had been a good choice as it is so beautiful. The sea and scenery on the peninsula are breathtaking. Once the pool was fixed, walking round this small 'resort' with our daughters in the evening was lovely. It was great watching the big cruise liners sail past from Gruz harbour on the other side of the peninsula especially when they are all lit up at night.
Also worth noting if you have small children, you can walk along a lovely coastal path from the hotel/resort (about 15 mins) to Lapad Bay where there is a really good children's playground. Our daughter made plenty friends there. There is also a little beach here and on the other side of the peninsula too.
All in all, this was a beautiful hotel in a lovely area of Dubrovnik with great facilities and staff. We hope to be back soon.
