Hotel Croatia Hotel 3 star

Dubrovnik, Croatia
Amy Adejokun Section editor

Built in the heart of a pine forest, all alone on a peninsula, the Croatia is one of the most popular hotels in the region of Dubrovnik. An imposing structure decorated in the best 1970 psychedelic style, it is very comfortable and suited for both active and cultural holidays.

    Location

    The Croatia hotel is the only accommodation located on Sustipan lush peninsula, on the shores of a limpid sea. It is 11 miles south of Dubrovnik. Dubrovnik airport is only 4 miles away, or a 5-minute transfer.

    Accommodation 6.95 /10

    The rooms are spacious (215 ft²) and comfortable. Unlike the flashy psychedelic decor of the hotel, they are furnished in discreet, contemporary style. They feature satellite television, direct telephone with international access, individual air conditioning, mini-bar, and a balcony oriented towards the sea or the garden. The bathrooms have a shower and a hair dryer. There is a safe at the front desk.

    Overview 6.95 /10

    Built in 1973 and renovated in 2004, the Croatia is spacious and decorated in the best kitsch style of the seventies. A high-class hotel, it can accommodate up to 1,000 guests in its 480 rooms and 7 suites, without looking like a large tourist factory. Its three buildings, including one with ten storeys, are surrounded by abundant vegetation and pleasant paths for walks. From the large terrace, one can enjoy a very beautiful view of the small town of Cavtat, also located on a peninsula.

    Food and drink 7.20 /10

    The main restaurant lacks light because of the tall trees in the park; it is decorated in the style of the seventies, flashy, with beige and orange tones. It can accommodate up to 800 guests and offers à la carte Mediterranean and international cuisine. The main restaurant serves breakfast and dinner buffet style. There is also a tavern, a snack by the pool, a coffee shop, and a grill on the beach.

    Beach 6.20 /10

    The pebble beach is narrow, and accessed through a path across the park, in the shade of parasol pines. It offers a minimum for suntanning. Deckchairs are rented. Small nautical base, and crystal clear water.

    To know

    Even though the Croatia hotel is close to the small town of Cavtat (a 30-minute walk), it is isolated, far from shops and cafes. A vehicle is necessary to go anywhere (the hotel has a shuttle).

    Worth knowing: The rooms were renovated during winter 2005. Curtains and carpets were replaced.

      The Excelsior hotel is very close (980 feet) to the historic centre of Dubrovnik. This is a city hotel offering great comfort, well-suited for people who are more attracted by cultural discoveries than by swimming.

      • Location 6.29

      The 5-star Bellevue overlooks Dubrovnik Bay, in a position from which it rightfully took its name. It belongs to the Adriatic Luxury Services chain and comes with a complete set of spa facilities, a swimming pool, a sauna and a gym. On top of this, it has a private beach with very fine sand and rather pleasant crystal-clear water, which is definitely worth a mention because it is not often the case in this part of the world. Deckchairs are also available for hotel guests. If you are interested in organising an outing or need help booking tickets to a show, you can do so directly through the hotel, which offers its own services.

      • Location 1.0

      The Pucic Palace, nestled in the heart of the old town, is Dubrovnik's only 5-star hotel. This charming boutique hotel is concealed inside a stone building, and each of its rooms is named after a famous author or musician. The decor varies from one room to the next: classic parquet floors, use of wood, warm colours, etc. Unfortunately, you won't be able to admire the sea from your guest room, as none of them look out onto Dubrovnik bay... We recommend you visit the wine bar, where you can sample a wide selection of international wines and learn more about local specialties. Local specialties are also on offer at the restaurant, along with many fish dishes.

      The Argentina is ideally located, in a beautiful park, a ten minute walk from the historic centre of Dubrovnik. It is better suited to guests attracted by cultural rather than seaside tourism: the beach ground is concrete and activities are scarce.
