Not only is the 4-star Hotel Alabatros located right on the beach, it also boasts one of the largest outdoor swimming pools on the Dubrovnik Riviera making it an ideal holiday choice. The picturesque town of Cavtat is just a short stroll away and Dubrovnik itself, which you must visit, is easily reached by boat or local bus.
Additionally, there’s a second indoor pool and an outdoor pool reserved for children at Hotel Albatros. The Remy Club caters for children aged four to seven years; the Maxi Club for eight to 12 years and teenagers can get together at the Teens Club (open July & August). There’s a range of arts and crafts, team games, a movie night and more. Adults aren’t forgotten with poolside games and beach volleyball, basketball, aerobics and much more. If you need something a little more relaxing, head to the spa where there’s a range of massage and beauty treatments on offer. In the evenings, you’ll enjoy live music and in-house shows.
The Konavle restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner buffet style with, once a week, a Gala Evening with local Croatian specialties. The Civitas restaurant is open at lunchtime and offers a casual menu with waiter service. There’s a well-stocked bar that’s open until late and a second bar right on the beach open during the day. The Hotel Albatros has recently been completely renovated and this is reflected in the high quality of the bedrooms and public areas. Complimentary Wi-Fi is offered throughout the hotel.
Game of Thrones fans are in for a treat as Dubrovnik was the setting for Kings’ Landing, capital city of Westeros. You can see where King Joffrey faced a citizens’ riot and the site of the Battle of Blackwater. Moreover, take a gentle coastal walk around the village and enjoy dramatic views and frequent refreshment stops.
A city tour of Dubrovnik and a walk around its city walls is an absolute must during your holiday. It’s easily reached in 45 minutes from Cavtat by the regular boat service but do come early or late as the city can get very crowded especially when there’s a cruise ship in. The views of the city from the top of the cable car are breathtaking. You’ll need your passport to visit two of Dubrovnik’s neighbours. Mostar in Bosnia has bazaars where you’ll be invited to take tea or Turkish coffee with the stall holders. En route you’ll stop to cool down at the Kravce Waterfalls. Or why not travel south to the small country of Montenegro and explore Kotor and Budva?
