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.
Hotels often look much better in the photographs. 5 stars are not really five stars, but this hotel was a pleasant surprise. The two bed apartment we were booked in which overlooked the sea was beautiful. Equipped really well (although the kitchen unit was a little basic). There is free wifi throughout the hotel which is great and should be standard across all hotels I feel. The beds were firm and comfortable. Toiletries were posh and smelled great. Everything looked of high quality but the best thing was the view. Seriously, pay extra and get the sea view. It's breathtaking. Note that dishwasher tablets, washing up liquid etc aren't provided but you can buy a small pack for about £15-£20. Bit pricey.
The pools were great but half of them were closed due to it being off season. In fact a lot of the hotel was closed. However, it didn't bother me too much as we got such a good deal. I can imagine it's twice the price in the peak season but also very busy.
It was a very nice. Small clean hotel with a pleasant staff in a quaint beach community on a cliffside outside of dubrovnik. The only problem we ran into was the extremely narrow street you had to take off the highway to get there. It is a very dangerous turnoff of the main highway which is only two lanes. One north and the other south and getting off and onto the highway was always a challenging because of on comming traffic coming up or down that main road. However overall the view was beautiful and tge beach was great.
