“What a view!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2009

Stayed here for a week. The rooms are very comfortable and the view from the room and balcony is just stunning! One that you would never tire of.

The reception bar and resturant staff are just excellent and I have never experienced better or more helpful people.

The food, morning and evening, is varied and plentiful, and very tasty. Despite being very careful, put on weight!

The indoor pool area gets a bit hot in summer, and we missed sitting near an outdoor pool, but that was the only, and very minor, gripe. That and the 1970s decor. But very minor really.

This is by far and away among the top three best places I've ever stayed in. Go there beoore it gets 'discovered'

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2009

We stayed here for a week commencing 5 July travelling with UK Holiday Options. Check in was welcoming and polite and we were in our room in no time at all before heading straight down to the beach bar. The room had comfortable beds, a sofa, TV, mini bar, safe, a large balcony with furniture overlooking the beach, plenty of storage space for our bits and pieces, air conditioning and wooden floors. The bathroom was OK with plenty of towels, toiletries etc, however, the bath in particular was cramped considering the size of the room and the position of the shower head made hands-free showering difficult. Care had to be taken when getting in and out of the bath due to the thickness of the bath edge and the tiled wall. Breakfast and dinner was buffet all you can eat style and there was plenty of choice each day. If you manage to get a table on the terrace at breakfast time, don't leave your food unattended or the sparrows will pounce! The view was fantastic and this view is the same as that from all the bedrooms. All the staff were very friendly and most spoke at least two non-native languages. Beach towels, parasols and sun beds were all free for hotel guests. Each floor in the hotel has the same patterned carpet but in a different colour, which helps as another way of enabling you to remember your floor. Journey time by No 6 bus to the Old Town is 20-30 minutes depending on traffic and the bus was always full to bursting by the time it arrived there and not all of them had air conditioning. It was a free for all getting on to come home though. There is a nice walk around the peninsula to Lapad where there are lots of bars and restaurants. I would have no hesitation in staying at this hotel again.

We had a great stay at this hotel. There is a town bus that stops right outside the hotel and will take you to the Old City. It was easy and convenient. The rooms were clean and modern. We looked into the Hilton; this was a little less expensive and worked out well. Three people shared the room and we were comfortable!!!

We stayed for 3 nights. Our room was much better than expected, spacious with sofas, large terrace/balcony overlooking the beach with great sea, coastal and sunset views. Our bed was decorated with fresh rose petals and the room was very modern and light. The bathroom probably needs a refurb however was quite satisfactory. The staff were friendly and helpful and breakfast offered a great selection of hot and cold foods. We found the piano bar most inviting and relaxing after a long day of sightseeing. Transport via the local buses to and from the hotel was excellent, being at the end of the line always ensured you got a seat and no confusion about where to get on/off. If we ever come back to Dubrovnik we would definitely stay again and would definitely recommend the hotel to others.

We drove down the coast of Croatia for over 2 weeks before arriving in Dubrovnik. the hotel is located on the Babin Kuk section-a peninsula to the north of the walled city. The front desk was excellent-they immediately called the rental car company and made arraingements for the rental car company to send someone to the hotel to pick up our rented car (you have to be slightly insane to drive in Dubrovnik). We had arrived early and the room wasn't quite ready so we dropped our bags, had a great lunch on the outside terrace overlooking the adriatic with a great glass of local white wine. The room was excellent. spacious with a sitting area and a large deck/patio. The location is outside of the downtown area, but the buses stop right in front of the hotel and travel to the Pile Gate of the walled city every 15 minutes-and they're on time!! According to local cab drivers and tour guides, the Dubrovnik President is the bast hotel in town. We believe it and will stay again when in Croatia.
