We left you several days ago, at the end of the first day of our stint in Split. We got up on June 2 (Friday), our second day there, and enjoyed the ample breakfast at our hotel.

We stayed there talking for a couple of hours until it was time to go and find somewhere to eat dinner. After that we pretty much went home and slept since Jayna had started so early in London!

... we were all pretty drained so we headed to one of the cliff bars we had seen from the wall to watch the sun set. It was great, we jumped of rocks and had a few swims before a cider as the sun went down. Really relaxing however quite expensive, I guess we were paying for location. For dinner that night we had Mexican, which was perfect. We counted this as Sarah's birthday dinner as the girls were off to Ibiza ...
... for us, we didn't leave nearly enough time to walk the entire wall and only got about half way around before it closed. Either that, or we spent too much time taking photos and enjoying the views. What we did see, however, offered beautiful views of the city and of the sea and the rest will just have to remain a mystery for us (or to be seen in the unlikely case that we ever come back)!

Historical Traveler Reviews Neptun Hotel Dubrovnik
A lovely friendly place
i stayed at the neptun in october and thoroughly enjoyed it. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and tidy and were cleaned every day to a high standard. The cafe and restuarant served a good selection of delicious food and the staff in both of these eateries were very attentive and very friendly. Nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff.
Very nice place
I stayed in hotel Neptun for a week in august 2005 and I was pleasantly surprised with everything hotel had to offer. The room was nice, eventhough I got the cheapest one, the beach is a blue flag, beautiful and clean. We had half board so i must say that meals were the best. They exceeded our expetations, you can nicely sit out on the hotel terrace and enjoy your dinner watching the sunset. I will definitely return to this place next year and stay longer.
We have just returned from a week at the Neptun. After reading the reports on trip advisor I was not looking forward to the holiday but found the hotel nothing like the reports that I had read. We stayed in the new part of the hotel, the rooms were quite small but nicely furnished with a small but perfectly adequte clean new bathroom.
This past August I had booked rooms at Hotel Neptun for Eight days and after reading a few of these reviews I had started to get a little skeptical seeing that I was treating my Girlfriend and wanted everything to be perfect, however I must say I was pleasantly surprised... I knew that the hotel had a 3 star rating but the main tower (where i spent half my trip) is more like a four star and the pavillion (where i spent the second half) offers an old world charm. The views from the balcony in both units were breathtaking and the units themselves were very clean. The people were very friendly, the food was decent, the weather was great, the swimming area was fantastic (residents of the hotel receive free lawnchairs and parasols) and the value was, without sounding cheap, a sigh of relief seeing that i was footing the bill. My girlfriend and I had a wonderful time in Dubrovnik, whether it was exploring sites or just lounging around at the Hotel beach area and relaxing. Would i go back to Dubrovnik/Hotel Neptun? Most definately, like-NOW!
My first trip to croatia i stayed in the hotel Neptune for seven nights. I had read some bad reveiws of this hotel, particularily about the two older wings. Also the buffet on a half board basis wasn't supposed to be up to much. While the buffet was no Vegas it was varied, good quality with nothing running out. The only gripe i had was that my wife being a vegitarian had to choose from cold dishes every night but one. I can't say anything about the older wings of the hotel, but the new one is great with a late bar, very clean rooms. quite air con & balcony with great veiws. The staff at the hotel were very courtious & friendly......altogther a good experience. i would stay here again..Michael.
well, where do i begin?i've just returned from a week in dubrovnik where i spent the week at hotel neptun. croatia itself is unbelieveable but i would give the neptun a miss. as the last reviews say it all depends on what building you are in. we stayed in the new(er)building, which is very clean with comfortable rooms and the most amazing views. the best thing about the hotel are the views from the rooms in the new building. i must say i paniced when i got there as i read the reviews here after i booked and i was in fear of being put in the old hotel. thank god we weren't as it looks very rundown and shabby. to be honest the hotel isn't up to much, well not by irish standards anyway. while the rooms are fine, the pool is dirty and small and the food is of a very poor standard. we stayed on a B&B basis and found the breakfast to be poor to say the least. you basically get an offering of watered down 'orange juice', a bread roll, a cold boiled egg, cheese and a bit of ham (if theres any left after 9am, that is!!).
We have just returned from a week at the Neptun. We were put up in the annexe part of the hotel. Having paid for a seaview we were put up on the ground floor, imagine our suprise when we opened the balcony door and found we were staring at a large bush. The balcony was filthy and the table and chairs were broken. The cleanliness of the room itself had a lot to be desired and there were ants crawling on the bedside cabinet. The bathroom was smelly and the toilet seat moved every time we sat on it. When we complained to the hotel manager he just laughed and didn't want to know. We also complained to our travel rep, who was Croatian, but he was absolutely useless.
My wife and I concluded our honeymoon in Dubrovnik in September 2004. We were looking forward to visiting the city after driving down the coast of Croatia. When we arrived at the Hotel Neptun, we were very disappointed.
Hotel is excellent value
Stayed in the hotel for 2 nights and can highly recommend it. We had a room with balcony and sea views, it is away from the hustle and bustle but there is a bus every 15 mins to the old city for about €1.
The restaurant is fairly basic but good, there is a kids pool and adults pool right beside the sea and a private beach area. We felt it was very good value and would have no problem staying there again
