Let me start by saying we booked this last minute and so had an amazing deal - £340 AI and i would say that this was easily the best value holiday i have ever had. I've stayed at some top quality hotels in London, New York, Bangkok, Barbados and this isn't one of them...BUT, it was clean, functional and more than adequate. It certainly is a bit tired, but not horrible. The major plus was the view - right on the seafront and we could see Dubrovnik quite clearly from our balcony by day and night - we were in room A331. If you stay on this side of the hotel, keep your curtains closed during the day - even in the last week of October the sun heated the room like a sauna!! The food was really quite good and whilst a bit samey, there was a choice of at least 2 fish dishes, 4 meat dishes, 3 pasta, a couple of rice and a good variety of salads & soups & breads at lunch and dinner. Breakfast offered a similar range - fresh omelets, pancakes, croissants, donuts, and the normal accompaniments, plus cereals, fruit, cheese, cold meats and even veg!!! I honestly wonder about some people - at home you don't have salmon, tuna, squid, pork, chicken and beef plus veg, pasta, salad and spuds all in 1 meal and if you choose to load your plates with everything, then you will find the food the same. Desserts were a little bit of a letdown, but again, a decent selection plus fresh fruit and an excellent selection of cheese. If you go all inclusive, the beer was good, local spirits fine and the house wine was really quite good. Cavtat is a beautiful little fishing village and has a good selection of restaurants and bars, Dubrovnik is stunning and well worth a visit - I'd suggest by boat which was 70 kuna's, just under £10 return. Oh, change your money out there - at Gatwick the offer was 7.6 kunas to the pound - we got just shy of 9 in the hotel and i suspect you would have got slightly better in a bank. We booked through Thomson and also took a day trip to Montenegro - that was amazing. If you are not AI, you can eat out in local restaurants for around £10 a head, drinks were slightly less than £2 each and ciggies about £2.50 a pack for Ronhills and just under £3 for Marlboro (£1.50 in Montenegro!). All in all, a fabulous week and we would definitely return.
