This hotel was in great location. You were based on the harbour so could watch the boats coming and going all day long. We then found we were a 10 minute walk from a strip of restaurants and bars which had a very holiday resort feel to it. Saying that, if you walked the other way you were about half an hour/40 minutes from Dubrovnik itself. Some people preffered getting a bus but it is walkable with comfortable shoes. We also took a trip to copacabana beach which was around another 30 minute walk away.
The hotel itself was great, the swimming pool area was tranquil and relaxing even though sometimes getting sunbeds was a bit tricky. Couldn't fault the rooms. The glass door people are talking about to the bathroom? It's frosted glass so you can't see anything but shadows the other side.
One of the members of the party was Coelic - so gluten intolerant. If you asked the staff in the buffet room they would point what is okay to eat and what isn't. They could also make you up a packed lunch with gluten free bread for 70 kunar which was good value. There was confusion in the pool bar with the menu as some things are marked up as gluten free when theyre not so watch out for this.
Croatia in itself is a great trip for anybody - you get a real mixture of people there and tehre is so much to see and do. You could go with friends, family or part of a couple and have a great time.
