Travel Blogs from Dubrovnik
We left Split at 9am with the depressing news that the Crows had been beaten by Collingwood. Unfortunately there were Pies supporters on the tour so we had to endure a short(thankfully) rendition of Good old Collingwood Forever.!! We drove along the Adriatic coast. Every turn brought us to beautiful bays and inlets with stunning views. We crossed …
... over a thousand people, and huge stone arches and vaulted ceilings. Again we had most of the group partying together, which was great fun. Add to that recipe booze, good music and pole dancers, and it made for an epic night.
After rising around lunchtime the next day, I found we were already most of the way to Mljet. Mljet is only a small town on an island, but it has a large national park next to it. A group of us strolled in to ...
... Once we had composed ourselves we took a stroll into the Old Town. Because we were so limited on time we decided to just see where the city took us. There are so many things you can do in Dubrovnik, the guide books are brimming with ideas so you could easily spend a long weekend exploring, having only 24 hours felt quite daunting! We walked along the perimeter of the walls until we reached one of the gates and headed in.
The cobbled alleyways ...

Caught a morning bus to Montenegro, weather not much improved but perfect for a scenic bus trip down the coast marvelling at the rugged coastline and high mountains. Somewhat disconcerting to have bus conductor gather up all passports to drive though the border, with a sense of relief when as the ...

When we arrived at the first island ,KOLOČEP, we had a maximum time of one hour so we decided to go for a walk to a beach. So as usual being the Wright family we got lost (not much change in that ). When we were getting lost we were boiling to death. We came across a stone ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Grand Hotel Park Dubrovnik
I stayed in the Grand Hotel Park for the 1st week in June of this year and we found the hotel very nice. The rooms were large and clean. The staff were always friendly. The food was buffet style. You could prebook tours there as well as in town. You could get a boat tour to some of the islands from just around the coner. They did have music in the evening but this mostly consisted of a guy playing a keyboard without singing. Not what we were looking for. They were suppoesed to have a late night bar opening this summer in their building by the pool but there was no sign of it opening at all while we were there. But the Kompas hotel around the coner had outdoor music. Very nice. The Grand has an outdoor and indoor swimming pool, massage, sauna etc. Short walk to bus stop into Old Town. All in all a very pleasant stay.
Great location and very good value for money
I stayed in the anexe, called 'villa park'. The room was modest but clean. There was a satellite TV and air conditioning, with was not a given for a 2* hotel. It is very close to the beach and to Lapad main street. The bus to go to the old town is at a few minutes walk. We had a great time there and in Dubrovnik and I definitly recomment the place !
We stayed in a inland facing room with the half board option on a First Choice package holiday. This was in teh main hotel building, not the annexe. Despite facing inland the views were still terrific.
Excellent hotel in good location
We stayed in June 2005. The seaside rooms are worth the extra money because of the spectacular views. The hotel has a lovely outdoor swimming pool and plenty of sunbeds. The beach is just a short walk away and is safe for children. Although pebbly, if you walk out a few yards into the sea you will find sand. The best places to visit are Catvat, by boat from Dubrovnik harbour and Lokrum. Do not miss the walk around the walls of Dubrovnik as the views are incredible, but remember to go in a clockwise direction from the city gate in order to do the steep bits when you are less tired. All in all a great holiday and highly recommended.
What a lovely hotel
What a surprise Dubrovnik was.Spotlessly clean,crystal cear water,beautiful scenery,and very friendly people.The Grand Park was a lovely hotel, ideal for adults and couples.The choice and standard of food,which being buffet style,means you have as much as you like,which was excellent,as was the friendly staff.The pool was lovely and big,with a friendly waiter for drinks.Entertainment is low key,but next door is a lovely taverna with music every night,or 2 mins away is lots of bars and restaurants to choose from.Perfect.It is an ideal place to explore the old town.The hotel provides a bus,but bus stop 2 mins walk and goes every 10 mins.Have a nice time!
We greatly enjoyed our week's stay in Dubrovnik at the Grand Hotel Park. The staff were helpful. Our room was clean & comfortable. The buffet Breakfast & Dinner were fine - not gourmet dining but good cooking. We thought it worth paying extra for a sea view room with balcony. It was wonderful to sit and admire the view every evening - even better with a pivo or two (local beer is very cheap in the nearby supermarket)
Good Place to Stay
This hotel in Lapad was modern and very pleasant with gardens running down to the seafront, swimming pools and sun terraces, Most rooms have their own balconies where you can sit and watch the lights at night. A few minutes from a very good supermarket and up-market boutiques in strange shopping complex. Several coffee bars and restaurants scattered around. No. 6 bus from the main street takes you to Pile Gate in Old Town and runs every 10 mins or so. Also a minibus service from the hotel several times a day. This is cheaper for airport runs than using local taxis. Breakfasts are excellent, supper mainly buffet and staff on the whole very helptul. Good position.
We stayed here in september of 2004, nothing to complain about but than again nothing extraordinary either. All in all, rooms were clean and the people nice, close to restaurants and the supermarket. Not too far from the beach or the old town. Would i stay here agin.......maybe.....
If you get a chance make sure you visit all the islands around Dubrovnik.....great experience!!!
Great hotel in Great location
Great hotel in the Lapad area of Dubrovnik.
Rooms were very modern and comfortable.
The hotel is just steps from the beach, which is shingle, not sand.
In the immediate area there are a whole load of cheap restaurants and bars.
A regular bus service to the old town stops just up the road from the hotel. Journey
takes about 10-15 minutes.
The hotel food was good, although I didn't like the fact we had to sit at the same table every day. If you are self catering there is loads of restaurants nearby, plus a big supermarket less than 3 minutes walk.
The hotel had both an outdoor and indoor heated pool. Friendly staff.
I would not hesitate to stay here again.
Visited this hotel in May/June 2004.We had booked two twin rooms for my wife and self and two teenage children but as they didn't have any ajoining rooms we had a suite instead.The hotel is in a great location in a nice quiet residential area and only about 25 minutes walk to the old city.The meals we had were quite good and the staff were very friendly and professional.The hotel is surrounded by woodlands and it is a few minutes walk to the sea.There are lots of things to do and see and we took advantage of several excursions ,Montenegro,Bosnia visiting Mostar and the local three island trip which we all enjoyed immensely. There is a large supermarket ,bank ,post office and bus stops about 5 mins walk from the hotel.We visited Dubrovnik nearly every day when we did'nt go on any excursions ,there is so much to see.A good day out is a visit to Lokrum the little island opposite the old city. On reflection I think we made a wise choice as this hotel had every thing we wanted ,good location ,clean,and the meals were good .I would definitely recommend this hotel and revisit it at some time.
