Recent guest reviews
Pros: - 10mins bus ride away from old town ( bus alights right in front of the hotel from old town, however, you will have to walk a bit further to take the bus to old town) - clean and comfortable room - there's quite a variety for the breakfast buffet - good housekeeping services (however do note that they don't provide toothbrush and bottled waters, even on request) - swimming pool with many deck chairs Cons: - bath area is really tiny and the bathroom will be wet after baths - the "wall" dividing the bathroom and bedroom and the door to the bathroom is all glass (ok for couples, but kinda of awkward if I share the room with a fren) - our room is on level 8 and we had to change three lifts to reach our room from the lobby (which is really too much) - the room is slightly dated
This was our first visit to Croatia so can only compare Hotel Lapad to hotels in other countries. In all respects Hotel Lapad compares favourably with many we have visited, spotlessly clean throughout, comfortable rooms with modern well equipped bathroom and excellent very quiet responsive air conditioning (our room was in the “classic wing”); spacious pool area with an adjacent shaded courtyard for those wanting to relax around the pool; helpful friendly staff, particularly in the restaurant and pool bar. We stayed on a half board basis as Bed and Breakfast not offered with Thomson, in the event this did us a huge favour because the restaurant was exceptional. not once did we feel the need to venture elsewhere to find something to eat. A large varied selection of excellent food served buffet style for both breakfast and evening meal that I felt would satisfy all tastes and appetites. We did hear some negative comments from other guests about restaurants in the area in particular those more expensive bordering Lapad bay. Hotel Lapad in conveniently located on the outskirts of Dubrovnik, 30-45 minute walk to the old City Wall, a regular bus service runs right past the hotel BUT it seems to get VERY busy, there are other more comfortable public transport options within a 10-15 minute walk or taxi costing about £8 each way. I think the best way to assess a hotel is to ask yourself the question “would I return?” for me, absolutely would, without a moments hesitation, thoroughly enjoyed our stay there and could not fault anything. A few final notes: 1) there is some construction of a new marina just outside the front of the hotel, at no time were we disturbed by noise, the work appears to be nearing completion and in my opinion will enhance the current appearance of the immediate area. 2) large cruise ships visit Dubrovnik most days and make the already busy old city quite hectic, it does quieten down during the afternoon as cruise liner passengers return to the ship. 3) some trips and tours involve crossing the boarder into Montenegro, we were warned of lengthly delays (UP TO FOUR HOURS) at the boarder so if you were considering that its probably worth checking before making the trip.
Have just returned from hotel lapad dubrovnik. The hotel is located in gruz which is where the cruise ships come in. Although outside of tge old city it is easy to get to the city on the bus and if you buy a day card the bus becomes free. The hotel we wouldn't class as 4 star as on a par wuth 3 stars we have stayed in. The food is good but the last days tge dinner wasn't as good as had been and there were things missing from the menu that tgey had put up which was disappointing. The staff are on the whole nice and friendly as are all the croatian people we spoke too. we sensed an atmosphere in the hotel for the last 3 days also.on the whole we had a good holiday but feel that if something is advertised it should have been there.
Our boat was leaving from the port of Gruz, so we chose this hotel primarily because it was in close proximity, but in fact it was great for many reasons. The check in was smooth, they prepared a take-away breakfast the day we left early for a side trip, and on the day of departure they stored our luggage for half a day while we lounged at the pool. All these tasks were performed efficiently in a no nonsense sort of way. Breakfast was extensive and gourmet and the pool was huge with lots of lounge chairs around. If you can't find a lounge chair next to the pool there is an additional area with beautiful vines next to the pool. The hotel is housed in what appears to have been a palatial mansion, and it's set back from the street so very quiet and private. It has been tastefully renovated, and some areas, such as the glass dining room, appear to be new additions.
Stayed here for the first week of our two center holiday on 9th.Bed and breakfast only as we like to explore the local area for restaurants.We did however enjoy the breakfasts with a big choice and the standard of bar meals on the terrace was very good.We found the staff nothing other than friendly and efficient-especially those in the terrace bar.Rooms are not massive but very clean and with good decor and modern spotless bathroom.We found this a very comfortable hotel with lots of character.Having walked round the peninsular there are some very large modern hotels that look excellent but missing the character of Lapad.We are seasoned travelers and consider we made an excellent all round choice with this Hotel.All countries and Hotel details vary- that is the joy of travel.We would like to thank the Management and staff for a comfortable and welcoming first week of our holiday in Croatia. We bought Dubrovnik cards that paid for themselves especially as we had a couple of days of bad weather when we simply visited the indoor attractions of Dubrovnik aside from the walk around the walls.These included tickets for bus trips both locally (multi ticket saved having to buy at hotel or kiosks) and suburban bus tickets also.Trip to Cavtat on No 10 bus from the bus station is worthwhile-Lovely spot.Yes No6 bus is always full but stops right outside and a short ride from old town due to this Hotels location on the Harbour side and barely out of town.A minor inconvenience if you don't get a seat but admittedly a scrum to board in the old Town.Nothing to do with the Hotel!The building work at the new Marina looks almost finished and whilst there are still some works outside it did not spoil our stay in any way.It may obstruct the view of the Cruise ships berthed opposite (Queen Elizabeth arrived during our stay) but should look smart once all the boats are there and looks to be a high quality development right outside the Lapad that should be an asset after this season. Can highly recommend the day cruise to Montenegro booked with the agents at the Hotel.
Hotel lapad is located opposite the coast and is a wonderful place to stay. The rooms are spacious, some offer a view of the waters. The buffet breakfast is awesome and the staff is courteous. Bus pick ups for local sightseeing as well as for distant locations like mostar and medugorge are available just outside the hotel. The hotel also has a lovely swimming pool and restaurant. However a budget restaurant called peppers is walking distance from hotel lapad.
Spent a week at Lapad Hotel 7th to 14th September 17 Our room was tastefully decorated Fitted furniture ample wardrobe and draw and shelf space Bathroom well designed with power shower head over bath the wash basin sink looked nice and modern but not very practical. Small balcony with 2 chairs and small table. the bedroom had double bed Mini bar in fridge. Flat screen TV and a sofa. Room partly carpeted so was the corridor. The kitchens and restaurant provide a good choice of nicely prepared meals. The staff are very helpful and friendly. The Hotel is situated overlooking the Port. A regular bus service runs outside the Hotel. But if like walking an ideal location for all the tourist sites. We enjoyed our stay at the Lapad
We were a group of three couples and we all were very happy with Hotel Lapad. Our room was very large, clean and a good bathroom. The pool area was nice with a lovely outlook and the only complaint would be the price we paid for an Aperol Spritz! There were some lovely restaurants nearby or it is easy to catch the bus into the old town, just a short distance away. Happy to recommend.
First time in Dubrovnik ,loved the City and all it had to offer. Stayed for a week at Hotel Lapad - Positives 1 / Modern room, very clean, Toiletries / tea and coffee replaced daily. 2 / Good base for Old town - 40 min walk or No 6 bus every 10 min. 3/ Good base for 3 beaches, 20 min walk. 4/ Bar staff friendly and helpful. Negatives- 1/ Food is average, overcooked buffet food for evening meal. Start clearing up by 9pm when should be serving until 10pm, food items run down and not replaced. 2/ Restaurant staff are unfriendly, especially not happy if you do not order a drink with your meal. Why can they not put a jug of tap water on each table? 3/ Bus tickets are held at reception but always sell out quickly . 4/ Beware the No 6 bus is always packed- standing room only, no health & Safety. Taxi's available but more expensive.
This is supposed to be a 4star hotel. It is in need of renovation. The Sperior rooms are very small hallway castrophobic. The buffet dinner was worse than that of college cafeteria with fairly rude staff. I would not recommend it at all.
