Hotel Aquarius

Three Star Hotels
Hotel Aquarius is situated in the very heart of the Lapad area, around 4 kilometres from the Old City and one of the most attractive suburbs of Dubrovnik. The hotel is surrounded by a gorgeous Mediterranean garden, in fact Hotel Aquarius is one of the most attractive small hotels in Dubrovnik and a great choice for visitors who are looking for a romantic getaway.

The Bay of Lapad beach is only 250 meters from the hotel and numerous restaurants and cafés are in the vicinity which although lively through the afternoon hours tend to be quieter in the evening. Hotel Aquarius has 4 apartments and 27 rooms in total, of which 20 are located in the hotel and 7 rooms in the hotel villa. Every room and apartment has air-conditioning, is equipped with elegant furniture, satellite TV and mini bar as well as a hydro-massage shower in every bathroom. Apart from the hotels main restaurant, where guests can enjoy a wide choice of local specialities and international cuisines,

Hotel Aquarius also has a beautiful bar and terrace. Here guests to the hotel can relax under the shade of a palm tree whilst enjoying a cool drink and even maybe a glass of a fine Croatian wine. With its elegant interior, friendly staff and relaxed atmosphere Hotel Aquarius is the perfect choice for guests looking for a small yet charming hotel in Dubrovnik. The Hotel Aquarius is open from the spring until the autumn.

Well above 3 star (even UK standard) Definite recommendation

No doubt you may be finding a difficult in finding reviews of Hotel Aquarius  As did we before booking. I honestly dont know why, as during our stay there were an abundant supply of both British and Americans booked in.

We were reluctant to book here as our experience of continental 3 star has been under par, however 4 star options were out of our budget. Needless to say we were not disappointed. Talking to the staff, the reason they arent 4 star is a) They dont have a pool and b) they arent open all year round.

First impressions  Splendid... Dark wood with luxurious comfy chairs in reception, well-presented reception staff with perfect English but most important eager to help.
One picky point was the tired and shabby looking carpet in the corridors, which didnt look too grand in the strong sunlight. This however was addressed with no action from ourselves as on our second day two local guys were on their hands and knees scrubbing away until midnight and I must say it did the trick.

We booked through Co-op and paid extra for a balcony and also requested that we didnt want a ground floor room. Sure enough this had been addressed and we were on the third floor which was sea facing. I havent said sea view as that would be stretching the truth but the sea was visible between the Grand hotel and a smaller building which were about 1 mile away but it certainly wasnt a spoilt view even with the three cranes in the distance building new hotels. We got the sun from noon til dusk, with beautiful sunsets. We were not overlooked other than the Grand hotel some distance away which I counted about 30 balconies, but these didnt get any afternoon / evening sun so werent that busy (I only every saw about four occupied at any one time)

There was a power shower with 3D jets, a fridge with mini bar (prices the same as hotel bar, so no rip off), built in hair dryer, air con and free satellite system.

We never tried the restaurant but it was the same area as the breakfast. About a dozen tables, cosy but not too intimate, and certainly looked if it had been recently been decorated. The breakfast was typical continental, cereals, yoghurts, toasts, rolls, fruit, scrambled and boiled eggs, local sausages, and the selection off cold meats and cheeses, all fresh.

Most of the restaurants close around 11/12 within 5mins walk and there are a multitude of them. I personally recommend the two immediately next to the hotel. Dont be put off, the hotel is set back and these are small restaurants so there is no noise. One is Madonna, which is on the same side and the other is opposite called Fellini. Personally wouldnt recommend Casa, which although very picturesque, set looking over the bay, the food was a let down even though there were very busy.

The beach is pebbly and has a fenced off section for swimming. The sun lounges are cheep 25Kn all day with a couple of very close bars on the front. We went end of Sept and it had that end of season feel about it. Some bars had started their annual refurbishment, painting of doors etc .

Good Value for Money

There is an advertising slogan in the UK which promotes paints and varnishes by saying that they do exactly what it says on the tin. >>> more
Mixed feelings

Our reservation at Hotel Aquarius was made fairly late on, and was based largely on it's competitive nightly rate when comparing with other Dubrovnik hotels. That the other were so expensive may have had a lot to do with just how busy they were, as the old city seemed to tbe teeming with tourists (top tip: if at all possible avoid Dubrovnik during high season month of August - too many people, plus very hot). >>> more
