Very nice rooms and bathrooms - just like the photos on the hotel website for double room side sea view.
Good location short bus ride from the Old Town.
Food rather monotonous. The wonderful photos on the website must be for a la carte - half board was a buffet with very ordinary food.
Big minus was the small pool area and lack of sunbeds. In high season definitely nowhere near enough sunbeds. Guests were moving bar chairs to the pool area or even lying on their towels round the pool if they could find a space - not acceptable for a 4 star hotel. Also, the free pool towel service consisted of one small towel the size of a hand towel - suggest you take your own!
Evening entertainment not as listed on the website - 3 evenings running there was a Croatian folk group. Other evenings a rather elderly DJ playing rather old music. No need to take your dancing shoes for an 80s night!
Dubrovnik and the islands were stunning. Would happily visit again but would probably look for a different hotel - Hotel Lapad was pleasant enough, but slightly disappointing. Better suited to guests who want to spend all their time exploring and not spend their holidays sunbathing.More
