I returned to this hotel, having first stayed here in 2012, to find that it was just as good, if not better than, last time. It is quite a feat for a wonderful hotel to live-up to a previous great experience - so often a place or hotel is never quite as wonderful as you remember. Villa Dubrovnik proves the exception to this sad rule and the reason is that they are constantly trying to be better and not rest on their laurels, as evidenced by the recent refurb of some of the public rooms and spaces which, whilst lovely before, have been given an up-date, and now look even better. This is, obviously, not a cheap hotel but, I feel, it is excellent value for money. All the staff are wonderful, polite, charming, well trained and not at all pompous as can be the case in some 5* establishments. The views from everywhere are superlative. The rooms are beautiful in a modern way and quite spacious. The food is first class and eating a leisurely lunch on the terrace with the best view of the city is something you should not miss. The "icing on the cake" is the boat service into the city, which is just the best way to arrive and depart. It is just wonderful to return to the hotel in the heat of the day when the city is getting too hot and too busy and relax and enjoy all that this beautiful hotel as to offer. I hope that I am able to return very soon.
