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.
Large hotel but with first class staff, excellent facilities and breathtaking views. Most certainly well worth paying a bit extra for sea view balcony as the sun is with you all day. Hotel is conference centre. Whilst it was quiet during our stay it is large enough to accommodate the extra guests. Breakfast is buffet style and caters for all appetitive sand tastes. Lovely quiet village of Cavtat is within 10mins walk whilst Dubrovnik is 40min boat trip or bus ride. October proved to be perfect time. Good weather, quiet area and warm evenings for outside dining. Will go again
"5 minutes walk from the romantic town of Dubrovnik"
The Hotel Excelsior and the historic town of Dubrovnik are inextricably linked. A 5 star hotel with stunning views from many bedrooms to both the sea and the old city. In fact from the private beach area, restaurants, bars and balconies of the hotel, there is a view to one of the most picturesque sights anywhere. The fact that this is all five minutes walk from the Hotel gives it one of the best vantage points anywhere in the Adriatic.
Since I was last at this Hotel,in 1973, it has upgraded itself significantly: indoor swimming pool, gym with personal trainer, hair and beauty salon and the choice of 3 different restaurants. There are also several upmarket shops for watches, jewelry and clothes.
However, it is the quality of staff who make the hotel. All the staff, whether it is at reception, the waiters and waitresses, the bar staff and those ladies who change the bed linen, are all very polite and well trained. They all care about you as an individual. You genuinely matter. Nothing is too much for them. This all the more impressive given that this whole area was heavily bombed in 1991/ 92

"A lovely restful stay in beautiful surroundings."
I arrived quite late from the airport but I had a supper tray made up for me and brought to my room. I woke every morning to the moon dropping off the horizon. I walked most mornings through Lapad on the Coastal route to the the Dubrovnik President Hotel setting me up for breakfast and the rest of the day. I took the bus into the old city either for evening concerts or a late supper and visited a number of exhibitions too. I will most likely visit again next year but be sure to book some sailing days.
All staff were extremely helpful. The hotel is very well maintained. We were in the magnificent older building; which we can thoroughly recommend. Very atmospheric, with window shutters and stone balconies to some rooms. Views were amazing. Breakfasts were fantastic!!
