“What a diamond”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

I apoligise for the delay in writing this review, however better late that never. Our week in Sept 2012 spent at the Valamar Dubrovnik Prseident Hotel in Croatia was a week of spectacluar service, cleanliness and exceptional value for money. The hotel is situated on its own beach overlooking the neighbouring islands and the approaches to Dubrovnik harbour. It is yet far enough away to avoid the noise form the Old Town but that in itself is still worth the visit(s). The hotel offers all you would expect from a 4 star hotel and, while full, still offers ample space for relaxing. The food is superb, the rooms excellent, cleanliness superb and the climate wonderful. The staff go out of thier way to ensure you receive excellent service and enjoy the experience and obvously take great pride in their work and service.. As a first time visitor to Croatia, I expressed a favourable complimentary comment, regarding all we had experienced including hotel and country, to the bar waitress who, without our knowledge immediately relayed it to the hotel manager. We were then rewarded uneccessarily, with a free desert on our lunch., which was a nice gesture. We were there last year and since then of course Croatia has since recently joined the EEC so that may have an impact on prices etc. Best buy is the local pear brandy called Kruskovac. First class hotel, proud and friendly people, well worth a visit

Dear guests,

thank you so much for writing and still remembering us and of course it is never to late to stay in touch.
I am so glad we managed to fulfil all your expectations, so the best reward for us is the fact you went home so happy and full of great memories.
The staff does go over the top to try and give all the guests the best service possible and me being among guests and employees all the time gives me the opportunity to get a lot of feedback and therefore try to react to them immediatelly.
I am glad you enjoyed the dessert for lunch and hope to see you here again for some more.

Until then all the very best from Dubrovnik.

Kind regards from all the staff members,

Belinda L. Božanja - Valamar Dubrovnik President general manager

We stayed at the valamar president this past September. I have nothing but good things to say about our experience. At the time of travel my son was ten months old and the staff was very friendly and helpful during our stay when we arrived the crib was already set up in our room and care had been taken during the set up. the room was beautiful and the view from our room was exceptional. I would stay at this hotel again or at any of the valamar hotels without question.

My wife and 3 of our kids stayed at the Valamar Dubrovnik last week and had a wonderful time. John at the front desk was very helpful and we felt warmly welcomed. The breakfast was great, the views and the beach are beautiful. When we left and realized we had left an item in the room, John was kind enough to have it sent to us back in the States. I would love to return to this hotel.

The first thing to impress us was the very friendly, helpful staff. This did not change over our 5 night stay. The rooms were very nice with big patios with stunning views of the Adriatic. Breakfast was a delight with a big choice of items. The waiters were wonderful, friendly and always fresh coffee. Having lived in California for many years we were not used to the pebble beach but got used to it after buying swim shoes. The water was great. Very easy accerss to the old town with the #6 bus stop only a few feet from the hotel entrance. The only negative was the in season hign pricing, but thats what you can expect when you travel at this time. Dubrovnik was just incredible.

This is an extremely well-run hotel : the staff are very friendly and attentive.

Breakfast is fantastic : your coffee cup will never be empty. Anyone posting a review moaning about the 25 kuna (about £2.50) surcharge for fresh orange juice is overlooking the ton of fresh fruit on offer every morning.

The beach is superb (but pebbly : bring a pair of beach shoes). There is a gentle current, but it tends to wash you up on the beach. It gets deep quite quickly. The water is VERY clear (and there are plenty of fish).

The bus service is excellent : cheap and very frequent - about 15 mins to the centre. The Dubrovnik card saves having to buy tickets.

A taxi to the airport was 250 Kuna : it takes about 30 mins and is a pleasant ride.

Wifi is free.

Minibar (and bar) reasonably-priced.

The hospitality stand is very helpful in arranging trips : the trip to Montenegro (with Elite) is very good, as is the Three Islands Tour (You get picked up from the pier at the hotel).

Fisherman's Dinner on Saturday night's is excellent value.

The indoor pool area is very good.

The only drawback is that - at present - some rooms have awkward bath-shower combos and the floor DOES tend to flood.

But it's a big, light, sunny hotel : a great base for exploring Dubrovnik. Although it's not cheap, it's excellent value-for-money, and you'll be made to feel very welcome.

Room Tip: Whatever floor you're on, rooms 1-25 (approximately) don't directly overlook the...

Dear guests,

it was lovely reading your detailed review, thank you very much for all the kind words.
I see you've visited all the areas and outlets in the hotel and it makes me very happy to know all was more than satisfactory.
It's already planned to buy lower new bathtubs for next season as a part of the investment project.
The prices will not be going up sky fly, so I hope you manage to come next season too.

Kind regards,

This hotel is about 10 mins out of Dubrovnik old town easily accessed by the 6 bus which runs every 10 mins.

Rooms are basic but good size and clean. Quite a big hotel and we ended up walking ages to lift.

We got a balcony but they are a bit weird. Big and you can see some sea but not down to the people and beach which is what we like to look at.

Breakfast is big we liked it.

Beach bar food is awful and room service food also disappointed us . Not that I'm ever that impressed with Croatian food but this was particularly bad.

Beach is nice. Water is lovely.

Service is really good.

Cot for baby was pretty bad without even a proper mattress.

We wanted something out of the old town that was child friendly and had a beach. It had all that but still not that happy. Just ok.

thank you for booking President hotel and for taking the time to share your impressions with us.
It's nice to hear you're satisfied with most of our offer but I am sorry you found a few things not to your liking.
What a shame you didn't like the food on the beach and in room service.
Hope you visit us again sometime to experience the changes we're planning for next season. I am sure you would like them.

Best regards from Dubrovnik.
