The resort is a little far from downtown, but there's a bus that stops right in front of it. Breakfast is very good and all the staff very gentle.
The view from the room is great. Food is good and there's also a small shopping very near with nice options of restaurants.
Two things that aren't good: the shower is inside the bathtub, and it's very high (old people can find it difficult to get inside); and there are only two very slow elevators. Despite these two things, I surely recommend it.

Dear guest,

thank you for taking the time and sharing your opinion with all of us. The good things are always a flatter to hear, but the downsides are the things we give more attention to as they help us understand better what guests prefer and like and what not.
We are aware the tubs may be a problem for elderly people and the fact the elevators are a bit slow, so all of this will be solved next winter when we are planning a big investment.
I hope you get the chance to come and visit us and see all the lovely changes we're planning on doing.

Thank you once again on your recommendation.

Yours sincerely,

Belinda L. Božanja - Valamar Dubrovnik President general manager

Taxi stops on the upper level, and nothing tells you what you will see next.
You enter - and there it goes, an oasis of calm.
Even for one who knows this venue from 80ies, the impression is always fresh and fascinating.
Superb facilities with gourmet cuisine. For sunsets... you know, you don't get even a glimpse of
such a stunning view, from opposite site of Adriatic.
First class, fine wines, a heaven of panoramas.
Love this place!

We have just returned from a 10 day holiday at this hotel in Babin Kuk, Dubrovnik.
We were really looking forward to our holiday, especially after reading some of the comments on Tripadvisor. Our expectations were completely exceeded. We had a wonderful room, described as superior, which it certainly was. The beds are very comfortable. The balcony/sun terrace was extremely roomy. The sea views were excellent and as stated by other visitors we watched cruise ships enter and leave Gruz harbour on a daily basis. The sunsets were beautiful. The food was delicious and there was plenty of variety to cater for all tastes and nationalities. The staff were friendly and professional, nothing seemed to be too much trouble. The staff in the restuarant were efficient and helpful. The Chef serving breakfast in the morning was always cheerful, he spoke many languages and always made time for a chat whilst preparing food. There was always plenty of food no matter what time you arrived in the restaurant.
The hotel was always extremely clean and tidy. Our room (332) was kept to the same standard throughout the holiday. Bedding and towels were changed on a regular basis.
We cannot recommend this Hotel enough and will return at some stage in the future.
It is ideally suited for a holiday which allows you to relax and experience all the culture of this wonderful Croatian city.
Although this hotel is outside Dubrovnik the travelling is really easy as there is a bus stop (terminus) just across the road from the hotel and buses run every 10 - 15 minutes.There are also some wonderful walks around the area, with a park which runs alongside the hotel and throughout the local area. There is a shopping complex close by with restaurants and other facilities.
We couldn't get over how clean and tidy Dubrovnik is. Our sincere thanks go to all the staff at the hotel for making our stay so memorable.

Dear guests,

what a superb review I must say .... thanks a million from all the staff members.
What specially made me happy was the fact you said we exceeded your expectations which is not an easy task. We all always do our best to fulfill our guests expectations but when we manage to exceed them then we know our job was done perfectly.

Once again thank you very much for the lovely words of support and are looking forward to having you here with us soon enough.

Take care,

Belinda L. Božanja - Valamar Dubrovnik President general manager

Stayed half-board for a week. Excellent room with wonderful view (and continual interest from assorted passing cruise ships). Relatively plain food - but very fresh and a large choice. Friendly efficient service. Lovely (pebbly) beach with immaculate facilities. Easy bus journey to Dubrovnik Old City. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: We had the 'better' room, but I'm sure they're all good

We were traveling in Croatia through a few cities, with Dubrovnik as our last stop. After thorough research, we selected the Valamar President as our grand finale to our trip. While the hotel information online and on TripAdvisor is great, our expectations were greatly exceeded. The hotel rooms are very comfortable, large, and clean. The property is perfectly manicured. The waterfront, though rocky which requires water shoes, was relaxing. The water is also the clearest, freshest blue I've seen in the world. Finally, the staff is the icing on the cake- especially the front desk manager John. Beginning with our friendly check-in and accommodations, the reception desk was knowledgeable, efficient and caring. (In fact, I left my mobile phone in the hotel and John helped me ship it back to my home in the USA--amazing). I would wholeheartedly recommend that if you are going to Dubrovnik, stay at the Valamar President. Don't forget to ask for John :-D
