8/10 Very good

Relaxed stay
Please tell accommodation spacious room large balcony. Air conditioning could have been better. No bottled water provided in room but fill up at breakfast. No beach adjacent to hotel not really suitable for kids or non swimmers though there are pools. Bus (no 6) leaves every 10 mins to old town from beside hotel. Bars are quite in evenings and no entertainment. Get down early for sun loungermist of places ‘towel claimed’ from early morning.

Did not meet expectations
Overall it did not meet expectations of a five star resort. Really annoyed that housekeeping threw away my personal sensitive soap and shampoo and guest services did nothing to resolve it except say "were sorry". Breakfast is bedlam from 9 am and wasps are sitting all over the food being prepared outside. No COVID safety measures. When I booked, i was told that i could get a free upgrade if available, and when I asked, the guy on reception said there was no availability but i could see online that was. My booking also stated a two hour late check out, for which they only granted me one hour. This sounds so petty but it makes a difference to the experience and it's not what's expected at a 'five star'. The service is generally mediocre. The room was nice and comfortable, and there are many pool and swimming options available across the five different hotels within the resort. Heads up that it's a 15 minute drive to the old town of Dubrovnik, and Ubers usually take about 10-15 minutes to arrive too.

2/10 Poor

DO NOT STAY HERE. I cannot express how upset we were at every aspect of this hotel. First and foremost, this is the most understaffed hotel I have ever stayed at. You get there, thinking this is a "resort" it is not. Upon arrival,our room was not ready so they suggested we go get a drink and gave us a drink voucher. We go to the bar, waited 30 mins for service. My husband eventually had to go inside himself where the waiter was extremely rude and said he would be right there. Finally came over to take our order and he then informed us the drink voucher was only for beer or champagne. Waited another 10 mins DRINKS NEVER CAME. We left. Dinner time came around, we could not get in ANYWHERE to eat, so we ordered room service. We were told it would be over an hour and a half because they only have ONE PERSON for the entire property (mind you, this is 4 properties in one ) to deliver food. it took over 2 hours. We ate dinner at 11pm. It was awful and so was the food. They do not answer the front desk phones if you need anything. EVER. We had to walk down every time or call at least 5 times before we got an answer. Your "free breakfast" - more like get up at 6am if you want to get any food. We got there at 745 and everything was gone. The grounds themselves are DIRTY, There were hairballs everywhere, no clean tables, old towels lying around. This place put a large damper on our trip. I NEVER write reviews but I hope this helps someone looking to stay here, please turn away.

The views from this property were amazing. Beautiful scenery and lovely to wake up to every day! Hotels are situated in a nice area, ten minute walk into the local town. Good location. Ten minute taxi ride into the old town

4/10 Fair

Definitely not a 5 star. The service at reception was slow and there was only 1 person servicing. No sunbeds and when asked where towels were the staff grunt to a tray. Breakfast was the worst, like a zoo. No tables, no staff, no bowls. Fly’s flying over all the food. This was more like 1 star! I’m actually appalled this has been reviewed as a 5 star. They are massively under staffed. Glasses left all around the pool. We went to reception and ordered an iron, 2 hours later it still doesn’t arrive and the phone didn’t work to ring back reception. I wouldn’t return to this hotel.
