Valamar Dubrovnik President Hotel
Ranked #9 of 68 Hotels in Dubrovnik
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 9 October 2016

The hotel is a real five star at reasonable price. Modern but friendly, very spacious, open and sunny, good breakfast, and easily accessed to old city by very convenient bus service every ten to fifteen minutes. Drinks in bar are a little pricey, and quantities very slim, but good service. Have several little benefits like luggage storage and free access if you have late flight out. Great contrast as a modern facility against the very lovely historic city.

Room Tip: No bad rooms, all have great views of the sea, islands, sunsets, and ship traffic.

Outstanding rooms, excellent service, nice pool, good cocktail bar, spectacular sunsets and a great breakfast with lovely fresh orange juice meant this made the perfect choice for a few relaxing days after staying close to the stunning Old Town for the first 3 nights of our holiday in Dubrovnik.

Although a few miles from the Old Town, transport there is still easy via the No 6 bus, made even easier as it stops at the terminus just outside the hotel. Not unnaturally there are loads of people wanting to go in and so the buses are crowded, with many standing on the bus, at peak times but it does the job.

The Babin Kuk peninsular, on which the hotel is situated, is nice to walk round and there are easy paths round and a pretty promenade, which starts right outside the hotel, that goes to Lapad . Locally there are also a couple of beaches, Coral Beach and Copacabana Beach, in addition to the hotel’s own beach. We were in peak season so they were busy - Coral was nice but Copacabana was tacky and one to miss !

Don’t miss the cave bar at the More Hotel, which is only an easy 15 minutes walk from the hotel round coast via the promenade. The restaurant there is also worth going to – it’s in a pretty spot and excellent for seafood. Unlike most of the hotel, we weren’t on half board and it is a shame that the half boarders, as ever, miss out on the local restaurants. We would highly recommend the Komin Restaurant just a minute’s walk from the hotel – the steaks are absolutely sensational – you might not believe it but truly they are and the blue cheese one is fantastic. Lovely restaurant, very reasonable prices and friendly staff and many thanks to John for looking after us so well.

Hotel evening buffets are not normally for us so we didn’t try, but did have a look and it looked decent enough, as you would perhaps expect given the standard of the breakfast and hotel in general

We did the 3 islands boat trip and it was OK. Sunj beach on Lopud is definitely the highlight. Sudurad on Sipan is nice for a beer by the pretty harbour but I’m afraid Kolocep is disappointing and not really worth stopping at. We went on a trip organised by the hotel but the boat was packed and not very comfortable and the lunch truly awful. Unlike normal boat trips the boat had no atmosphere, not helped by the crew were completely disinterested, and so it was a disappointing trip really although you do feel you have to see those islands !

Very nice 5* hotel. It's located right at a beautiful beach, around 15 min from the center of Dubrovnik. The rooms are quite spacious, most of them have sea view. The food is really good, the staff excellent and friendly. I highly recommend this hotel for a stay in Dubrovnik.

What makes a good hotel?
Great facilities, friendly and attentive staff, good food and drink, spacious well maintained rooms, lovely location on the Adriatic?
You got it
Downside the beers are a bit pricey. The wine at around £18 per bottle for a house white is very reasonable in a quality hotel. But a pint at nearly £6 is a bit much.
But that really is the only small downside.
The staff are so accommodating going out of their way to help.
Breakfast choice is fantastic and the evening buffet is excellent. Normally,at the end of a week, you start to get fed up with the same restaurant but the choice is so good and varied it's fine.
Breakfast or dinner on the terrace are a delight.
The views from the room are great.
The bus stops outside the hotel for Dubrovnik old town. As its the terminus you are guaranteed a seat.
Buy your tickets in the hotel it's cheaper. Validate the ticket as you enter the bus and you have an hours travel.
If you want to walk to bars and restaurants, including the cave bar, leave the hotel via the beach exit and follow. the path.lots of bars and restaurants within 5 minutes. If you want to stretch out just continue on the same path until you see the post office. There is a mini supermarket and more restaurants.
If you have had enough walking or too much wine from bar hopping you can pick up the number 6 bus just by the post. Tickets from the kiosk next door.to the post.
Lovely hotel as Arnie said I'll be back
