Very comfortable beds, especially the pillows. Terrace area for breakfast was beautiful and the range of food excellent although the fruit offering could have been better. Fabulous Spa and sunbathing facilities and even at busy times, sun loungers could be found. Sea swimming excellent but the pools were a little small due to the rock face restrictions. Lunchtime menu was adequate. The evening menu was excellent but top end of price range. There was a frequent bus service into the old city which made the hotel conveniently placed. Staff very pleasant indeed. I stayed with my two daughters, both in their 20s and we all would consider staying there again.
This is an excellent hotel, we had a great stay and are already looking to book to return again next year.
We stayed in one of the master rooms with a private jacuzzi, everything about the room was very very good. The views from our room were superb, the balcony was huge and meant we could be in the sunshine all day there if we wanted to. The food at the hotel was great although a little more expensive than some places. Even the wi-fi worked well in the room!
Lopud is a lovely island, transferring to/from Dubrovnik is also very easy with the option of taxi boats and a ferry (we used the ferry - it's only a few euros per person).
I couldn't recommend the island or the hotel highly enough!
"Lovely hotel close to beach & easy access to town"
We loved the Valamar President. Very clean and modern. We stayed for 5 nights.
There was a really convenient bus that took you straight from the hotel into the old town. It made it very easy as they were both ends of the line.
The staff were so helpful and always had a smile on their faces.
The pool was beautiful and so was the private beach. There were loads of water activities ranging from jet ski, banana boats or just tours of the neighbouring islands.
Breakfast was so lovely and so was the beach bar which served fresh food daily as well as great cocktails and fruit smoothies!
We ate dinner mostly in the old town which was spectacular. If you like sushi go to Bota, you will need to book a day before. We also went for a really romantic meal at Karisa, which is just as you enter the old town from the main entrance.
We really enjoyed our stay. It was our first trip to Dubrovnik, and the hotel was a superb retreat and very pleasant place to stay. The help was kind, helpful and low-key in all the best ways ( assisted with bags, recommendations for sightseeing, taxi service, ice for a gift of champagne, Fex Ex help) and the setting of the property is superb. We will return.

Ideally located in an exclusive residential area of Dubrovnik, on the waterfront, the 4-star Boutique & Beach Hotel Villa …More
We stayed in room 591 at Villas Mlini which is adjacent to the much older Asteria Hotel. The Villas are new and very modern. 591 is front row on the bay. The view is amazing. Very tranquil. Small beach platform area just below the villa, 1 minute walk through the complex to the sandy beach. The villa is compact, modern, very clean, quiet, and has two floor to ceiling windows so you can relax in bed with the great view and in the living-room too. Small kitchenette is useful to prepare your own coffee etc. We loved it and would return in a heart beat. Restaurants abound within in a couple minutes walk along the front. Pool area gorgeous and well kept. Only complaint, no pool towels, so bring your own. All in all, wonderful experience.
We were made to feel welcome before we even arrived with an email telling us how to get there and where to park. On arrival, we were greeted by the friendly owner who speaks little English but immediately phoned Petar, who came over, showed us to our room, asked what we were interested in during our stay and sent us a very informative email the next day with lots of useful information. The apartment was very clean and spacious, the kitchen area is small but extremely well-equipped, although in the end the nearby restaurants are so reasonable we always ate out, and the view from the balcony is amazing. We were offered clean towels during our stay, and we were always greeted with a smile morning and evening, making us feel very at home.
