Good Clean Hotel
22/10/07 - Just returned from the Hotel Albatros Cavat. Good clean hotel, with excellent food and spotless kitchens. Rooms adequate not the largest we have stayed in but not the smallest either. Very comfortable with carpeted floors. 'A' block sunny side is the best block but having paid for a superior room all the rooms were the same!!! So it is rather a waste of money to pay this supplement. The Albaros is in a very quiet position and is 16K from Dubrovnik and within walking distance from Cavat which is very quiet with a handful of shops selling tat. Plat and Miline is also dead.
Staff on the miserable side at the Albatros and not a smile out of the restaurant staff. The head of the restaurant we named 'Manuel' as he looked like him and did his job much about the same as Faulty Towers. Never checked what room you came from in the whole of the 2 weeks and any one could have eaten in the restaurant without being stopped.
The hotel was full of American coach parties which was a bit daunting. Thursday night it was a special night and coaches of people seemed to appear from everywhere and it was a free for all at the meal. Which take it from me was NOT good. Pool very cold both indoors and out and was not heated.
Be aware if you are booking this hotel or anywhere arriving at Dubrovnik airport as if there is a cross wind the planes cannot land and have to go to split airport and get a bus down which takes 4-5 hours and the coach does not stop. This happened 4 times in the two weeks we were there. If you have this transfer and are staying in a hotel in Dubrovnik then the coach just drops you off in the town and you have to find your own way to the hotel. No rep present and sometimes it was 4.00 in the morning!! Not so good especially if you have children with you and are not told where your hotel was which did happen.
There is not a lot to do or see unless you want a long coach ride. Dubrovnik is about the only place. Walking the walls was good and took about 2 hours but the views were quite special.
Enjoyed the holiday and hotel but too quiet for us. Will not be returning to this part of the world as like a bit more life and a few shops to look in now and again when the weather is rough.
