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.
We stayed here for one week in October 2014 and it was better than expected (Trip advisor reviews weren't great for a 5*). We couldn't fault it, the staff were really friendly and all spoke brilliant English, the rooms were spacious, we didn't have a sea view but this was our fault for not paying for an upgrade, if we went again we'd go with a sea view as this was spectacular, especially at sunset.
The breakfast buffet was excellent and the location was perfect, although a lot of steps down into the village so if we were a little older or unfit it may have been an issue but for us it was fine...a great way to walk off all the food we consumed during our stay.
Can't comment on the evening meals at the hotel as we ate out in Cavtat every night.
Spa and Pool were great but the gym was a little tied the the exercise bike squeaked A LOT!!!...but all in all no complaints!
Weather was also FAB (better than Manchester in October any time!!)
It was my bday,and the hotel surprise me with flowers and a cake.
I was not happy with the first room I was given, I went to the front desk, and I was offered two room to choose from.
This is by far one of the best hotel I've stayed in. They are all about their guess. I will and have recomend this hotel to friend.
Thanks for a wonderful week.

Half the price as many others in the area, same great views and amenities as others. Great pool, reasonable lunch/beer/cocktails. Very few children. Lots of middle aged Germans. Very quite and relaxed guests.
Modern hotel surrounded by shady pine trees, just 350 metres from the beach and six kilometres from the centre of Dubrovnik …More
"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.
