Our trip to Dubrovnik; 'pearl of the Adriatic' ; was a first for us.
We chose this destination with great care; thoroughly researched and so fully informed. Our primary reason was about the History, Historical sites and Culture. As we do enjoy discovering the unique aspects of a resort.
Whilst reading this it must be acknowledged that this resort is still in the process of recovering from the terrible Sectarian conflict that occurred around twenty years ago. Some scars are still visible.
We chose the Hotel Splendid as it appeared to be one of the smaller Hotels in the resort; as a couple we like to get to know the staff and generally find this so much easier in the smaller hotels.
The hotels communal areas were all very clean and well presented. Reception was fronted by very polite, helpful and friendly staff all under the watchful eye of Doru; who we found to be very chatty, approachable and informative. All the reception staff were eager and willing to help in any way they could whether it be providing you with your bus tickets, times of buses or other information pertinent to your request. On the whole the reception staff were exceptional.
The outdoor sea terrace and adjoining areas were serviced by Serge. This area was an extension to both the bar and Restaurant areas of the Hotel. The service for this area was usually provided by Serge a very polite, respectful, friendly and knowledgeable member of staff. He too was more than willing to spend time getting to know us.
As usual we chose half-board for this particular holiday; as we were unsure of the standard of the local eateries or indeed the availability.
The breakfast service offered a wide variety of European foods in both hot and cold varieties and appeared to meet the needs of most guests. Indeed if required any and all special dietary needs were met.
Our evening meals were again just as wonderful this was in part due to the variety of cuisine on offer; both Hot & Cold. Also present was an impressive array of desserts both delicious and local. The atmosphere in the restaurant was friendly and efficient, this was due to the two waitresses; Anka & Luce. Who ensured that the evening meal was a very smooth and enjoyable experience.
Our Hotel room in itself offered all the usual facilities. A clean and tidy bathroom with Shower combined. The double bed was very comfortable and we both had no trouble sleeping. Additional bedding was available on hand if required. The view from our balcony was spectacular; offering us a wonderful vista of the locality, surrounding Mountainous areas and sea shore. The noise from the surf which we found very soothing.
On the whole we feel very pleased with our experience at this wonderful Hotel and would recommend it to others; especially during the quieter months of the season.
