Hotel Croatia5.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
We stayed for a night in this hotel. The room is not very big but there is a balcony with a view of the sea. There is wifi but no kettle or coffee and tea as in most of the hotels we have stayed in. We had buffet dinner and buffet breakfast as part of our package. The food is not bad. There is pasta and roast pork for dinner, and breakfast is quite a good spread with bacon, sausages and scrambled eggs. As we were part of a tour group, we had to check out early for our tour, and therefore we did not have the chance to see the swimming pool or go to the beach. We would love to return and stay longer to enjoy the facilities of this hotel.
Although the hotel was very good, the room wasn't really 5 star. The facilities were great and we enjoyed our stay very much though. Being high up, the views were wonderful and the sunset was fantastic.
This hotel has an official 5 star rating - it is definitely not five star however. Don't get me wrong we had a fab holiday but there were so many little things that stopped it from being five star. The good things - the room was very spacious as was the reception. It was situated five minutes away from Cavtat which is a lovely harbour town with enough bars and restaurants to keep us occupied. The hotel offered a buggy service to transport you and down the hill. The hotel clings to the side of a cliff. The minuses - firstly the food, We were half board - the breakfast was ok but the standard of the evening meal was pretty poor, the quality and choice left a lot to be desired, We ended up eating out probably about 9 out of our 14 nights. We paid extra for one of their speciality nights expecting a menu and table service but no it was the same buffet food as in the main restaurant and self service - a bit of a rip off really. The pool area was quite small for the size of the hotel but had not problems getting a bed. The real negative was the pool area was never cleaned. The pine needles were never swept up in the whole time we were there and any spillages were not hosed away - so there were sticky patches and stains all around the pool. The other thing was the rice of the drinks in the bar - they were really expensive so it was down to Cavtat for us. Like I say we had a great holiday - Croatia is gorgeous, Cavtat is a lovely harbour town and we had some good trips out and went to Dubrovnik and Mostar - both worth a look. The hotel was disappointing but did not let it spoil our time in this lovely resort.
Ok, I don't usually write hotel reviews (I'm a restaurant guy), but I wanted to go out of my way to write one for this to counterbalance some of the negative reviews here. Stayed in this hotel during the summer on a family vacation, on a half board (breakfast and dinner) basis. Overall had a great time, really, really enjoyed it. The hotel has a lot going for it, big spacious and very nice rooms (we had a sea view). All hotels have room for improvement, and this place is no exception, but overall it is a fine place to stay. Yes, I have stayed in more modern newer hotels, but the beauty of its natural surroundings more than makes up for this...nestled in a corner of Cavtat harbour with a pine forest with nature trail and beautiful seas, brimming with sea life - bright orange star fish, a wide variety of fish and yes we even saw dolphins (they are elusive) on one day! Ok, let's talk about the food, as for the people who said it was a bit bland or not very good, I'd ignore them. The breakfast buffet was full service, so all the usual stuff, breads, pastries, fruit, cheese, juices, hot items, cold cuts - and food cooked to order - all fine. I ate here for 2 weeks and did not get bored of their breakfasts, now that's saying something. The dinner buffets were also very good, rotating menus daily and plenty to suit everyone, including fish lovers, meat and vegi folks. Did I mention the truffle cheese on a varied cheese section? How about the squid ink risotto? Desserts galore, including their local version of a baklava. Veal steaks, grilled squid, sea bass. The hotel also has several other restaurants, but going by the buffet alone, you will not be disappointed. Do go at the right times and you will avoid the queues, this is just common sense. Service was good, many young staff here and they are happy to serve. If you are a big coffee drinker (good coffee btw) just ask them to leave a whole pot at breakfast. Facilities, really nice pools, both outdoors and indoor and of course you have a choice of sea locations to swim in. Yes, there is no sandy beach, but got over that, put on your diving mask and explore the crystal clear waters. I do recommend you bring some gum sea shoes, as there are urchins and you really don't want to step on one! Or go kayaking, nice. There is a gym, which is fine, but seriously go outside. Oh by the way, there is a spa part which not many people knew about, an oasis of calm. Ever sat in a sauna staring out to calm blue waters? Well you can do that here. Rooms are very nice and clean, no complaints. Wifi connection was good. I could write more, but I think you get the picture. Yes, given the opportunity, I would stay in this hotel again. Overall very good indeed.
Stayed here for a few days for a wedding in Dubrovnik. The hotel has stunning views. It is located a short walk away from the town center which has a great variety of bars and restaurants. The staff was friendly and pool/restaurant area were very nice.
We stayed at the Hotel Croatia for a week in October to celebrate a special birthday and wedding anniversary. We were looking for a quiet relaxing week in a good hotel, with things to do if we wanted. That's exactly what we got. The hotel is built into the hillside on the peninsula opposite the little town of Cavtat. It's big (400+ rooms) but never felt overcrowded. We had a lovely double room with a sea view looking out over the islands. It had all the facilities you'd expect and a nice balcony which got the sun in the afternoon. Great for looking at the amazing sunsets too. The hotel was arranged over 9 floors with the reception in the middle. The restaurants were on lower floors and spa area with indoor/outdoor pools, sun beds and treatment rooms on the 5th floor. The food at the buffet restaurant was very good. Plenty of choice for breakfast and evening meal. There were cafes at the pool and the Piano Bar throughout the day. The outdoor pool was a bit too cold to swim in (in Oct) but the water at the indoor pool was perfect. Fresh towels are supplied at the pool. Didn't have any problems getting a sunbed, but you do have to move to follow the sun as the pool is surrounded by trees- so partially in shade. The spa is excellent, we had a couples massage which included fruit and herbal tea on a private balcony. My husband ordered flowers to be delivered to the room for an anniversary surprise- and they came with a bottle of Prosecco from the management. Staff were excellent, very helpful- esp. the bell boys who would drive people to and from the town on request (it's a very steep hill). Cavtat is lovely. Very pretty, with a long promenade lined with shops, restaurants and bars. It was very tasteful and quiet. No lively nightlife (which suited us). It also has a supermarket, post office, banks and a bus station. Things to do: apart from lounging round the pool and strolling round town, there are several walks around the bay. There were kayaks for hire too. The holiday company (Thomson) offered a number of day trips to Mostar and Montenegro. We didn't do them but heard good reports from people who did. However, the big advantage of Cavtat is that you can get a water taxi to Dubrovnik and the islands. It takes around 40 mins and costs around £10 return. Beautiful atmospheric city and well worth going two or three times. I'd definitely consider staying there again and would recommend it to others. Tips: Book a sea view room and buy your drinks at the supermarket- the hotel prices for beer, wine and cocktails are on the pricey side.
My husband and I went to this hotel for our mini-moon just after our wedding. The hotel was lovely and clean, well kept, good facilities and staff very helpful. The steak restaurant was very good at the hotel, as were the cocktails in the piano bar! The hotel doesn't have much going on in the evening but we just used to stroll down to the marina and there was a beach bar there that was quite entertaining. The outdoor pool was nice and we could always get a sunbed when we wanted one, just not a lot of them stay in the sun for the afternoon unfortunately. The 'beach' was lovely and where we spent a lot of our time. It is always in the sun, and sitting looking over the rocks out to sea (especially at sunset) with a glass of wine was so relaxing. There was a lovely restaurant down in the marina (can't remember the name) but the food was amazing, we went back a few times! The prices down there are slightly cheaper than the hotel, or if you walk around to the next bay I think the prices went down again (if you fancied a big walk!), although we only walked round there for a stroll during the day so couldn't comment on restaurants in that area. Overall the hotel was lovely and staff really helpful, would 100% go back. TIP: I don't know if it was the time of year but we got bitten a lot in the evenings by mosquitoes, so make sure you take or buy some repellent!
First time in this area of Croatia and we were very pleased with the week we had there. One benefit is the closeness of the airport, just less than 10 minutes by taxi away. The town of Cavtat is lovely and a short walk from the hotel. We travelled through Thomson and having seen the brochure showing the views from the balconies seemed just what we wanted, however when we were shown to our room we were given a dark room facing a bank of earth and trees with no sun all day. When we complained we were told that was a standard Thomson room. Thomson do not make this clear and reception do not want to help other than charging to upgrade. That aside, the hotel was a good standard and food was plentiful although a little bland and lacked flavour. Must dos are Dubrovnik by water taxi, Cavtat at night etc We would return to the area but not this hotel unless we checed room type before booking again
Beautiful hotel, brilliant views, staff friendly and very helpful. Food really nice. Room didnt get cleaned one day and staff immediately rectified it and gave a bottle of wine as an apology do dealt with very well. Hotel could just do with at least background music in the piona bar on an evening as no entertainment at all. Boat taxi to Dubrovnik was brilliant with a couple of stop offs on the way . Fantastic holiday will definitely return .
Went with my Daughter for a weeks holiday. Hotel very large, 2 swimming pools indoor and outdoor. Piano bar and downstairs a club/ disco, cant comment on this as never used too tired after being out sightseeing all day. Was impressed with the facilities and staff and would definitely go again. Cavtat is only a small village but has plenty of restaurants and bars, not really suitable for anyone wanting night life. Caught a boat into Dubrovnik which cost 80 Kuna return approx £10. Beautiful scenery.
