Expert review of Hotel Splendid
With its own beach out front, this low-key hotel occupies a 1970s modernist building overlooking the sea and backed by pine trees. The rooms are simple but comfortable and breakfast is served on a sunny sea-view terrace. A pleasant coastal path skirts round Lapad Bay, where you’ll find open-air cafes and watersports facilities - a lovely place to return to after a day’s sightseeing in Dubrovnik Old Town.
Overlooking the sea on Lapad peninsular, a 10-minute walk from the main pedestrian boulevard. Dubrovnik Old Town lies a 15-minute bus ride away (service runs every 15 minutes and stops right in front of hotel) or a pleasant 40-minute walk.
The 59 rooms (both doubles and singles) all have balconies and views either of the park or the sea (a little more expensive but worth it). The décor is a tad dated, in tones of misty pinks with grey tiled bathrooms, plus air conditioning, satellite-TV and mini-bar. The hotel stands on a dead-end road so there’s no traffic noise.
The hotel’s Glorijet Restaurant has a sunny dining room with memorable sea views, plus a glorious front terrace shaded by pine trees, ideal for an al fresco breakfast.
The generous buffet breakfast includes eggs, sausages, rolls, Danish pastries, and platters of sliced cheese and cold meats, plus tea and coffee. There’s also a buffet dinner – many guests are on half-board.
Below the hotel there’s a small pebble beach backed by rocks and concrete bathing platforms, with sun beds for hire and waiter service from the bar. I suggest coming for a swim in the late-afternoon and staying for sunset - very impressive as the beach is west facing.
Friendly and helpful staff.
Predominantly European couples and families, some on package deals.
