We had booked the Hotel Neptun but, on arrival, found we had been relocated to the Royal Princess. Our suite was absolutely fabulous - two bathrooms and a lounge and bedroom both with amazing sea views. You just couldn't have wanted anything more.
The staff were incredibly helpful, giving advice on bus times, locations etc., and always with a smile. The room was cleaned to a very high standard every day.
The breakfast was good. It was a buffet with something for every taste - fruit, meats, cheese, croissants, jams etc. There was also a 'hot' selection - scrambled egg, bacon, potatoes, mushrooms etc. which we chose the first morning but sadly found it only to be lukewarm so opted for the continental choice on the next two days. We had the buffet meal one evening but, again, it was disappointingly not hot enough for our taste. The rest of it was brilliant.
The Spa was good too - had a sauna and a 'steam room' experience and enjoyed swims in both the indoor and outdoor pools. Everywhere was spotlessly clean.
Buses into Dubrovnik were regular. We took the path at the front of the hotel around to the bay one morning and picked up the bus from there to take us into town. It was a pleasant walk past lots of little restaurants/cafes most with spectacular views. The Cave bar in the More Hotel is amazing and certainly worth a visit. The views from the terrace during the day are unbelievable!
If you're going to Dubrovnik, this hotel is certainly a 'gem'. It might be a little too far out for some tastes but the ambience, outlook and facilities certainly make up for the extra time spent to-ing and fro-ing into the old town.
Thanks for a wonderful stay.
