We are just back from a holiday at the Valamar Dubrovnik Hotel celebrating our son's 21st birthday - October 2013. The hotel was lovely. We were in a seaview superior room and the hotel upgraded the other members of our family to two similar superior rooms as they had them available at that time.
We were half board, there was a wide selection of food in the buffet which catered for all tastes... The head Breakfast chef was always on hand to supply you with what you would like, always with a smile, as were the rest of his staff.
The views were magnificant from the balconies/rooms with beautiful sunsets..
The staff were all very friendly and approachable.
We planned a special day for our son's birthday and the reception staff went out of their way to help plan this, with nothing being too much effort.. We would like to give a special mention to Ana Pulic who assisted with all of the preparation of the plans for our son's birthday, she was amazing. Also Jegko Bjelobaba and John Danicic who also helped make our son's birthday an unforgetable experience. As a rule I do not normally go onto Trip adviser making comments however given the help and support from the staff at this hotel I felt it important that others know of our experience, and what to expect from the staff at the Hotel President Dubrovnik.

Dear guests,
A big thank you for these kind words! I remember the staff telling me about your son's birthday and what they were doing to help you make your son's birthday an unforgetable experience.
I will pass on your thanks to Ana, Zeljko and John.
The fact that you normally do not go to Tripadvisor to make comments makes us even more happy and proud.
Hope you will come to celebrate your son's next birthday with us again!

Lots of greetings from all our staff!

Well where do i start, I found the receptionists very approachable when we arrived, nothing was too much trouble, very knowledgeable. Our room had a fantastic view of the sea and it was so quiet and peaceful. We had a superior room which was well cleaned and well set out. It had a mini bar which we didn't use, free use of safe and a massive bed. The only drawback of the room was the bathroom as it was a bit dated but there is a full upgrade of the hotel. The beach was stoney but the hotel had free sunbeds and towels and the sea is wonderful clear and warm. There is a beach bar but we never used. I loved the lift that has a sea view. The breakfast wasn't my cup of tea but there was plenty and a varied selection but not my selection. Had something to each during the day and found the food first class. The bar prices are not bad and i was expecting them to be far worse. The reception is on the 7th floor down to the beach on the 1st which i loved. Enjoyed sitting in the room and watching the sunsets. As i have said the hotel will be updated to 5* and i will probaley find out of my price bracket. There is the no.6 bus, outside the hotel, that takes you to the old town, anywhere else ask reception, so helpful

We stayed for a week sept/oct. Excellent location if you want to get away from it all - bus into town takes only 30 mins or so, though can be crowded. Hotel has its own private indoor pool and jacuzzi and beach, with residents having free access to beach and sun loungers. Beach is rocky but there are bathing platforms with steps to facilitate access. The view is fabulous and each room having a sun trap balcony and herb garden is a nice touch. The sunsets were spectacular. Room was average, clean, with a very large comfortable bed, though the décor could do with a touch up, especially in the bathroom. As others have said, the less mobile may struggle getting in and out of the shower.
We were on half board - there was plenty of food, though it was a little bland for my tastes. However, the hotel seems to attract an older clientèle, so this may explain that. Ditto, evening entertainment was a little pedestrian and 1970-80's influenced, but this is all a matter of personal taste. House wines are all local and are fairly well priced - the white in particular was very drinkable for the money. Staff were at all times helpful and attentive, even when obviously busy or harassed, their staff training must be excellent. Overall, we were very happy and would recommend.

Relaxing stay, wonderful location. Use bus to get to the city in no time, yet enjoy a majestic position by the sea. Sea facing rooms with terrace a really wonderful way to chill out. Great for family holiday, conference, or business visit.

Room Tip: All rooms are sea facing, with terraces. Igf your conference is in this complex use this hotel.

I stayed at this hotel on a recent business trip to Dubrovnik. What a fantastic location overlooking the sea and the islands.
Rooms are spacious and have a lovely terrace with a view.
The meeting room was excellent and the staff very helpful. The hotel is a little tired in places but will be upgraded over the winter and reopen as a 5 star in 2014. I would go back for a holiday.
