Karen’s trip to Croatia.
“In May I had the pleasure of traveling to Croatia for a 4 night break with Prestige Holidays.
Just a 3 hour flight to Dubrovnik and I was met by a private transfer for the 25 minute journey to the Hotel Croatia in the resort of Cavtat which was to be my home for the next 4 nights.
The Hotel Croatia is one of the larger hotels in this area but it never felt crowded or busy. Tit is a beautiful hotel, the foyer is very attractive with a great ocean view and the grounds are stunning with a lovely pool area and comfortable sunbeds.
The room was very nice, and the bathroom had an excellent waterfall style shower. I stayed in a superior ocean view room with a balcony and what a view it was! (well worth the small supplement to upgrade).
The resort of Cavtat is probably the most southerly resort of all in Croatia, located around 20 km south of Dubrovnik and only 22 km from the border with Montenegro. It is a very pretty town with plenty of good restaurants. It is a lovely place to stay and relax after spending the days visiting the sights & culture in Dubrovnik. You can get between the two resorts very easily by either a boat transfer (approx. 45 mins) or by road (approx. 25 mins).
Dubrovnik is full of history and has many activities & unusual restaurants/bars. You can walk the city walls or take the cable car which must have amazing views over the old city. Sadly I didn’t get to do this due to the weather which was disappointing. It does get extremely busy during the summer months though!
Between Cavtat and Dubrovnik is a little village called Mlini. I really liked this area with its pretty little harbour and one of the better beaches. I found Mlini to be more family friendly than Dubrovnik but still with easy access to the Old City. You can also catch a bus for a couple of euros or jump on a water taxi. There are a nice selection of restaurants and cosy bars; Mlini has a very laid back atmosphere.
Croatia for me is a great country and perfect if you want to combine a historic city with a relaxing break and it has amazing views around every corner!
I saw many hotels whilst there and would gladly recommend one to suit your personal needs. Please call me on 01937 845678 for more details.”
