Hotels

Our most regularly used 3 star hotels are located in Lapad, an idyllic and typically Mediterranean bay, located 10 minutes drive from the Dubrovnik old town. In our opinion Lapad offers a tranquil oasis in comparison to the busy street life of Dubrovnik town centre. Lapad has many lovely restaurants, a beach area and many other private batheing spots. Here you’ll find the famous cave bar, many places to enjoy a cocktail and watch a perfect sunset. All our hotels are a 5 minute walk to a sandy beach, and local conveniences. All rooms are equipped with shower or bath, WC, Sat TV, phone, and a hair dryer. Fully air-conditioned and free Internet access in the hotel public areas. Room WIFI isn’t always guaranteed. Upgrades to 4/5 star hotels is possible during your stay on Dubrovnik, Lapad, Lopod Island but not Sipan Island.

Guest houses, studio rooms and apartments

Even during the peak season both Sipan & Lopud have very charming & calm atmospheres. The accommodation’s we use are a mixture of: guest houses, apartments and studios. They are basic but clean, comfortable & maintained with care. Rooming is shared, with two people per room. Where you will be staying can be best described as; simple, comfortable and clean, with private bathrooms. Of course – bed linens and towels are provided in the price [although we advise to bring 1 x big beach towel]. It’s important to note, these are not luxury boutique accommodations.
