... another school that was directed to become an academy as it was deemed to be "failing", so much so that apparently the local papers had once described it as "the worst school in England". The old school was knocked down and the new academy built in its place. After speaking to the new Head it was very apparent the the new school buildings and rebranding into an academy had had a profound impact in the students and community. Many of the behavioural issues have disappeared and ...
... meals in my life, but that's a different story). After dinner, I went for drinks to the same spot, and got ready to leave early on Saturday. My next destination was Montenegro but not without stopping in Dubrovnik first. After hearing a lot about Dubrovnik I had to see it with my own eyes: on one hand I knew Dubrovnik is very beautiful, but in recent weeks I learned from sources and fellow travellers that it is very, very expensive. Being a budget traveler as ...

... we decided to head outside the walls and use the cable car to view all this splendour from above. Once again there were numerous steps to climb and we arrived just as the numbers for the next car were completed. However there is only a five minute wait for the next car and the added bonus of this was that we were first in line and got prime position at the front of the car. This enabled us to take photos all the way up and it was amazing to watch as the town decreased in size and ...

Our plans of a swim over at Lokrum Isalnd were put to bed when we found the ferries had been cancelled and so not to be beaten a group of us headed down toward the waterfront for lunch. By the time we had finished dining the grey skies had given way to blue, with the temperature rising accordingly. We took the opportunity to continue walking around the bay. It was along this ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Croatia Hotel Cavtat
Unique, creative and originally styled, the Hotel Croatia has a distinctive look, which we have never previously encountered. On entering the hotel, you would assume this to be the ground floor, but not here, it is below the 5th floor! Built into the steep rocky peninsula. You will be amazed, and slightly confused at first, at the bizarre plan of your hotel. There is an open top swimming pool half way up the hotel with snack bar and from reception you go down to further floors, including the restaurant for breakfast and evening buffet.
Croatia hotel wonderful
we spent the last week of september and first week of october in the hotel.
it is one of the best holidays we have had. the hotel was wonderful so were all the staff. it was very clean and lovely white towels and bedding. the food was very nice and was a very nice evening on the croation night . the area was very pretty and also the old town with the port. would recommend this to anyone.
Loved Hotel Croatia
Have just returned back 2 weeks ago from hotel croatia in Cavtat, lovely hotel. Staff very friendly and helpful, especially Anna in the piano bar and Lucy in the resturant. Great food, rooms not luxurios but nice and very clean,
very nice and helpful maid, towels changed daily, bed linen several times over the two weeks. Also very nice staff at the beach very attentive. Great service from the hotel to and from the airport. Great views from hotel, and in a lovely position.
Cavtat really beautiful for a quiet and relaxing holiday, gorgeous place, will certainly be going again.
We Agree with Previous Reviews
We spent the first two weeks of September at the Hotel Croatia and would agree with nearly all the comments of both your August reviews.We felt that the hotel was more 4plus stars rather than five.
We found the food to be varied, well cooked and well presented but the wines are very overpriced as are the bar drinks.On the subject of the bars we found that the staff and waiters were less than polite or helpful and in sharp contrast to the reception and restaurant staff .That said, a wonderful location and a fine hotel.
We stayed in this hotel last year (2004) and i have to say we had no real complaints. The only issue that i can think of is although it boasts a 5 star rating we were warned beforehand by the agent that it is more like a 4 star which turned out to realistic.
We have just arrived back from a wonderful week in Cavtat. Stayed at the HotelCroatia, food and hotel both excellent. The steps to the town could be a problem for anyone with impaired mobility. Had a trip to Dubrovnik but were pleased we chose to stay in Cavtat although it is a magnificent town. Croatians are really friendly and made us feel very welcome. Not a lot to do for teenagers. Would reccomend both the hotel and the town
We have just returned from a weeks holiday at the Croatia Hotel. We were allocated a room at Reception level overlooking the sea which, was clean comfortable and had a lovely view. The hotel facilities were good a decent sized pool (indoor and outdoor) with plenty of sun loungers around the pool and on the terrace. A disco and casino (we visited neither), piano bar and snack bars.
The Hotel Croatia is a large hotel, situated on a hill overlooking the picturesque village of Cavtat. For the less mobile, it should be noted that to reach Cavtat you have to decend 127 steps, and more importantly you have to climb them to return the hotel!
This is certainly a hotel that is worthy of over four stars and i would go back there for a few nights next time i'm in Croatia. The hotel is in a perfect location with fantastic sea views and a very well designed swimming pool (from what i remember there was an indoor swimming pool as well). The choice at breakfast was fantastic and the rooms were very clean and very luxurious compared to a lot of the other hotels that we have stayed at in Croatia. It is also in a perfect location if you have hired a car. Very close to the airport (yet you wouldn't know it) and perfect for visiting Dubrovnik and Montenegro (i recommend driving to the old city of Kotor and the Kotor fjord - great experience!). Very good if you enjoy quality accomodation and unusual sightseeing. Although quite a long drive of over two hours, the old bosnian city of Mostar is also worth visiting and possible to drive to in a day along the Neretva River Delta - beautiful (if you don't mind the roads which can get pretty bad at times!!)
