We had a lovely week at this hotel. The city is a 15 minute bus ride away. The room was a good size and clean. The only negative is that the balcony area needed tending (weeds plus cigarette ends). The staff are polite and efficient (especially at the Reception).
We booked bed and breakfast. The breakfast is good but I would suggest bringing your own tea (the Sir Winston Churchill Tea isn't like any tea that I have tasted!).
The pool is clean and of a good size and, unusually, there were enough sun loungers. There is a nice bar at the pool. The hotel is set within a complex where there are some shops and restaurants. We had a very nice pizza in one of the restaurants and there is a good bar opposite with excellent service. Overall, we were very impressed. A hotel that is very good value for money with hard-working staff.

Room Tip: Bring your own tea!

We stayed at the Tirena for 8 nights in July 2012. We arrived on a Saturday evening and were given a room in the same floor as reception overlooking a garden area in the middle of the hotel. The room was really dark so we asked to change rooms. There weren't any available that day so we went back the next day and changed to a room overlooking the restaurant courtyard which was a bit noisy in the mornings but the room and balcony did get some sun!

We were on half board and the food was really good, pancakes in the morning were a nice touch.

The hotel is in a good location on a peninsula with a few other Valamar hotels and is well served by the buses into Dubrovnik. The bus is frequent, only 12 Kuna and timetables are given by reception, you can by tickets in advance from the shop.

We want to a Dubrava night which was really good.

The beach is a 7 min walk down hill from the hotel, make sure you get some rubber shoes to wear in the sea you can buy them locally for about £6.

I stayed here for 2 nights and was very comfortable. The small room and shower cubicle were adequate for my needs and the selections at breakfast were very good. I also had dinner here 1 night and it was standard but very nicely presented buffet fare.
The staff were friendly and efficient and the grounds surrounding the hotel were pleasant with paths through trees and shrubs leading to the pool area. This is the best part of the hotel, with a large, well kept pool complete with pool bar, kiddies pool, and terraces with deckchairs, sunloungers and sun umbrellas. A very welcome retreat on a hot afternoon! It's only a short walk down to the beach, too, but I didn't go so can't really comment on this aspect.
The Number 6 bus takes you right to the old town (1 euro 15, I think) but is often full if you get wait at the stop near the hotel. Walk down the hill to the village and get the bus there, but coming back, alight at the hotel or you'll have to walk back up the hill!

Room Tip: My room was near the rear of the hotel so was very quiet and pleasant with trees and shrubs right ou...

We stayed here for 10 days. It was a lovely, clean hotel. Really easy to access the Old Town, via the number 6 bus and we loved the pool.

The only negative really was that one evening there was a big event going on outside the hotel, the music was really loud and went on very late. Apart from that there were no problems at all.

The service was great and we booked some trips through the desk.

Breakfast was nice although we only ate in the restaurant one night and didn't really feel like it was very good value for money.

We stayed here for 2 nights. It was a 30 minute journey from the airport which was really easy - about £25/30. Hotel room was really nice and clean. The pool was lively with plenty of sun loungers and lunch was also really good at the cafe. The girl on the hospitality desk was excellent and answered a lot of our queries on boats etc which we learnt are not as easy in Croatia! Excellent knowledge from here. You can take the 6 bus into the old town which runs every 10 minutes and stops at 2am so although this is a bit out of the old town it was really easy to access. Really pleased with this hotel!
