      Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Uvala Dubrovnik

      Wundervolle Erfahrung

      from

      Ich war im April 2006 zum ersten Mal in Kroatien und übernachtete im Uvala. Alles war ausgezeichnet (auch wenn das Wetter kalt und das Schwimmbecken leer war); der Innenpool und das Freizeitangebot waren toll, das Personal und das Essen sehr gut. Habe eine fantastische Pediküre und Ganzkörpermassage genossen. Der Bus zur Old Town hält direkt vor dem Hotel und die Fahrt zur Old Town, wo das Leben stattfindet, dauert ca. 15 Minuten (kostet ca. 2 Euro pro Fahrt, Fahrkarten kann man an der Rezeption bekommen). Nehmen Sie ein paar Kuna (Landeswährung) mit, wenn auch Euro genommen wird. Wir sind über die bosnische Grenze nach Medjugore gefahren (Reisepass erforderlich), eine sehr spirituelle Erfahrung (wenn auch etwas kommerzialisiert mit leuchtenden Jungfrauen Maria etc.). Für die Medjugore-Fahrt haben wir ein Auto mit Fahrer gemietet (über das Hotel), anstatt an einer organisierten Busreise teilzunehmen, und haben einen wirklich schönen Tag verbracht, wobei wir auf das örtliche Wissen des Fahrers zurückgegriffen haben, um den Tag voll auszunutzen, einschließlich eines Besuchs bei römischen Ruinen, einer türkischen Siedlung, dem Dorf Ston (familienbetriebenes Restaurant) und vielen spontanen Pausen, die man auf einer organisierten Busfahrt nie hätte. Sehr empfehlenswert. Für eine fünfköpfige Gruppe (vier Erwachsene und ein neunjähriges Mädchen) kostete der Wagen mit Fahrer nicht so viel wie die organisierte Busfahrt und gab uns freie Fahrt in den Tag. Es gibt keine Märkte oder aufdringliche Straßenhändler oder Leute, die auf Kundenfang sind und versuchen, ihre Waren loszuwerden, und die Old Town ist fantastisch mit jeder Menge zu tun, einschließlich super Bootsfahrten (Boote mit gläsernem Boden oder die Eliphite Inseln). Ich kann diesen Urlaub Leuten empfehlen, die nicht unbedingt auf Sonne, See und Sangria aus sind! Durch die etwas höheren Preise ist ein Urlaub der besonderen Art gewährleistet. Uns hat unser Aufenthalt sehr gefallen und wir würden das Uvala Hotel auf jeden Fall empfehlen.

      Ausgezeichnetes Hotel!

      Dies ist ein ausgezeichnetes Hotel... Mein Freund und ich waren dort eine Woche Anfang Oktober. Die Angestellten waren so freundlich, das was einfach unglaublich. Ob Wegbeschreibungen oder andere Anfragen, sie haben uns immer mit Freude weiter geholfen! Ich empfehle ein Zimmer im vierten Stock mit Meeresblick... atemberaubend... Der beste Ausblick des ganzen Hauses und dazu noch ein Balkon. Das Hotel hat zwei Schwimmbäder, eines drinnen und das andere draußen, dazu noch zwei Jakuzzis, Dampfbad und Anwendungen im Wellnessbereich. Der Bus in die Altstadt hält direkt vor dem Hotel und es gibt verschiedene Restaurants nur einige Minuten zu Fuß am Strand entlang. Wenn man vom Strand spricht, er befindet sich direkt vor der Tür, nur über die Straße und ein paar Stufen hinunter und schon ist man da. Sonnenbetten und kristallklares Wasser warten auf Sie...

      Erstklassig in jeder Hinsicht!

      from

      Dies muss wohl eines von Kroatiens Juwelen sein! Meine Partnerin und ich waren im Mai für eine Woche hier. Was für eine tolle Erfahrung! Wir werden mit Sicherheit wiederkommen. Das Hotel war fantastisch, modern, sauber und bot alles, was man sich nur wünschen kann. Das Personal war fantastisch, äußerst hilfsbereit und sorgte dafür, dass unser Urlaub super werden würde. Das Essen bestand aus einer Auswahl von heißen und kalten Büffets, und wenn es auch nicht die Qualität eines Michelin Star hatte, fanden wir es jedenfalls so gut, dass wir nirgendwo anders essen gehen wollten. Ich kann Ihnen nur raten, sofort zu buchen, Sie werden es nicht bereuen.

      Wir würden es wärmsten empfehlen

      from

      Unsere 4köpfige Familie hat das Hotel Uvala geliebt. Es ist genauso wie auf der Thompson Webseite bzw. in der Broschüre beschrieben. Wir hatten nebeneinander gelegene Zimmer (keine Verbindungstür) auf dem obersten Stockwerk mit Balkon und wunderschönem Ausblick über die Bucht. Wir waren hier während der Herbstferien und es war sehr ruhig (nur ein Drittel Belegung). Zu dieser Jahreszeit war das Außenschwimmbad kalt, da die Sonne nicht darauf scheint, jedoch hatten wir den Innenbereich fast völlig für uns alleine. Die gesamte Anlage war blitzsauber, die Angestellten sehr hilfsbereit und freundlich und das Essen ausgezeichnet. Sehr schöner Wellnessbereich. Zum Stadtzentrum sind es 10 Minuten im Bus und es gibt sehr gute Verbindungen. Das Meer war schon sehr kalt im Oktober, aber wir haben es trotzdem einmal gewagt. Andere waren da schon mutiger! Wenn man ein 5-Sterne Erlebnis möchte, dann sollte man ins Dubrovnik Palace Hotel gehen, das nur ein Stückchen weiter ist und luxuriöser. Uns hat die entspannte Atmosphäre im Uvala mehr zugesagt und wir würden auf jedem Fall zurückkehren.

      Beautiful town and the hotel is not too bad at all

      from

      First of all let me say Dubrovnik is awesome - I have been to some beautiful towns and cities around the world and Dubrovnik is right up there, the town and walls are breathtaking, (when you consider 15 years ago the place was in the middle of a bloody conflict it is all the more staggering).

      The restuarants and bars in the old town are plentiful and generally good quality (we found dining out to be of a particularly good standard generally and quite cheap - averaged around £27.00 for 2 people with drinks).

      Secondly, the locals were really nice and very friendly - I think having a 16 month old boy with us helped - they seem to adore childen (it actually got a bit over-whelming on occasion with the hotel staff)

      As for the Uvala - I was overall very impressed, to summarise the plus points:

      Very clean & modern with good amenities - indoor and outdoor pool, jacuzzi, spa, gym

      Perfectly adequate rooms - we had a 3rd floor room (of 4 floors) with a sea view - I would ask for a sea view otherwise you'll be looking at a hillside for the course of your stay

      Excellent staff - Very helpful, happy to chat, always keen to help - the chamber maid did a great job every day on the room - spotless

      Pretty good location - In Lapad, a suburb of Dubrovnik (about 10 mins on a bus from the old town) where most of the hotels are - nice little promenade and pebbly beach -absolutely crystal clear sea), reasonable bars and restaurants - all feels it is still being developed - but not bad

      There were a few negatives about the hotel I guess (all minor and no doubt subjective):

      Booked direct - worked out alot cheaper but I did find them a bit disorganised - no problem when we arrived though (but I was a bit nervous we were going to turn up and not have a room!)

      The outdoor pool was freezing! Our little boy would only go in the indoor pool - which wasn't that warm either (although it did warm up during the week)

      Having a young child, we opted for HB - The buffet dinner was OK, but smacked a little of mass catering - we ate out most nights (as I said earlier prices were reasonable in all the restaurants and Dubrovnik at night was great) - I would book B&B only if possible - however the Breakfasts and a'la-carte lunch menu was very good

      Very small bar and lounge - but nice

      Cheesey entertainment at night (another reason to scarper to Dubrovnik)

      No grounds - hotel perched on hill overlooking road, outdoor pool on deck on 1st floor - great if you dont have kids - a bit limited when you have a 16 month old wanting to charge around all the time

      So - In summary, I think the Uvala is good value for money - great for couples / oldies who just want it for a site seeing base, not so good for families - opt for B&B if booking direct

      First Class in Every Way!

      This has to be one of the jewels in Croatia!

      My partner and I stayed for one week in May. The whole experience was superb! We will definitely be coming back.

      The hotel was fantastic, modern, clean and with all the amenities you could wish for. The staff were fantastic, extremely helpful and they ensured we would have a fantastic time.

      The food was a selection of hot and cold buffet and whilst not michelin star quality was nice enough for us to ensure we didn't want to go elsewhere to eat.

      My advice is book this hotel now, you won't regret it

      Wonderful Experience

      from

      Visited Croatia for the first time in April 2006 and stayed at the Uvala. Everything was excellent (though the weather was cold and the outdoor pool empty) the indoor pool and facilities were great, the staff and food very good. Had a fantastic pedicure and full body massage. The local bus for the Old Town stops outside the door and takes about 15 mins to the Old Town which is where everything happens, (costs about €2 per journey and you can pick up tickets at the hotel desk). Bring some kuna (local currency) though Euro is accepted.

      We went across the Bosnian border to Medjugore (passport required) which was very spiritual (if a little commercialised with luminous Virgin Marys etc). We hired our own car and driver (through the hotel) for the Medjugore visit rather than opt for an organised bus tour and had the best day, using our driver's local knowledge to make the most of it including visiting Roman ruins, a Turkish settlement, the Village of Ston (family run restaurant) and lots of impromptu stops that you would never get on an organised tour. I highly recommend doing this. For a party of five (four adults and one 9-year old girl) it cost less than doing the organised bus tour and gave us carte blanche for the day.

      There are no markets or lookie lookie men, or people touting for business and trying to sell their wares, and the Old Town is fantastic with loads to do including fabulous boat trips (glass bottom boat or Eliphite Islands).

      I would recommend this holiday to people who aren't looking for sun, sea and sangria! The slightly higher prices ensure a very special kind of tourist/holiday. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would certainly recommend the Uvala Hotel.

      Would highly recommend

      from

      Our family of 4 loved the Uvala. It is just as described on its web site and in the Thompson brochure. We had adjacent (though not linked ) rooms on the top floor with balconies and wonderful views across the bay. We went at October half term and it was quiet (about a third full) At that time of year the outside pool was cold - it doesn't get the sun, but we had the indoor facilities practically to ourselves. The whole place was spotlessly clean, the staff were helpful and friendly, and the food was good. Good spa facilities. It is a ten minute ride on the bus to Dubrovnik and the bus service is good. The sea was cold in October but we did brave it once. Others were braver!

      Those looking for the five star experience may prefer the Dubrovnik Palace Hotel just up the road which is more luxurious. We prefered the relaxed atmosphere of the Uvala. We would definitely go there again.

      First Class In Every Way

      from

      Not an ordinary hotel by any means in terms of design and decor. Neds to be seen to be appreciated as the outside view is very ordinary.

      It was certainly not ordinary at all once you got inside,as well as the outstanding friendliness and service from everyone there.

      Marvellous views and location near to local transport, beach and shops.

      Everyone, everywhere was always so helpful.

      Beautifully clean and sparkling at all times.

      The Uvala also has the most friendly Dining room we have come across - they could not do enough for you -and the food matched the service!

      We shall be back there without a doubt.

      Apart from the Hotel there were abundant lovely places nearby to visit, Islands and small friendly resorts, all with good eating choices as well as the Old City of Dubrovnik a very short distance away.

      Dubrovnik is not really a family holiday as yet and the shopping needs to improve to keep the ladies happy- but that will come with time we are sure.

      Brilliant Hotel!

      from

      This hotel is fabulous... My boyfriend and I stayed there for a week in early Ocotber. The staff are so friendly it is actually quite unbelieveable, any directions or queries you need to ask, they are more than happy to help you out!I have to recommend getting a room on the fourth floor with sea view... breathtaking...The best view of the house and complete with a balcony... The hotel boasts two pools, indoor and outdoor along with two jacuzzis, steam room, and spa treatments in the beautiful wellness centre...The bus into the old town awaits you just outside the door of the hotel and various restaurents are only a short walk across the beach... speaking of the beach, it is at your doorstep, just across the road and down a few steps and there you are...Sun loungers and crystal clear waters await you....

We had a beer and antipasto for lunch in the old town. The cafe did not have WIFI so our contact with the outside world will have to wait until tomorrow when we are in Kotor, Montenegro. It seems the old town is a WIFI zone but it required an online registration and texting process that we couldn't ...

      Dubrovnik!

      As briefly mentioned in the last Split blog, we got the bus from the MedSailor marina straight down to Dubrovnik. Slight hiccup that the bus had **** all aircon, so I was sweating my balls off the whole way. We had a quick stop in what turned out to be Bosnia since there is a little stretch of the coast that belongs to Bosnia, with Croatia on both sides... Main thing was that it slowed us down as we had to go through the border twice! A couple of sodas and ...

Just as we walked in, we found the Orofrios Large Fountain which was damaged in the Seige of 1991-1992. This 15th century fountain has been restored and once was the stop for travellers to wash their hands. Immediately on our right was the entrance to the city walls. We paid our 90 Kuna and started the climb up the stairs. The walls showcased wonderful views of ...
