    Service could be better.

    by

    This accomodation is in Gruz. Exit the main bus station, cross the road. Facing away from the sea, go right and walk for about 10 minutes. The rooms are above the Villa Amfora Restaurant.

    When we arrived there was no-one manning the reception desk. We approached 3 people before we could check in.

    Eventually we were shown to our room which was clean and comfortable. The bed was comfortable, there was a fridge, two bottles of water were provided on the first day. There was no safe and no tea/coffee making facilities. I asked for a map of the local area, but they did not have one.

    We liked the Gruz area for restaurants. It was easy to get into the old town by taking bus number 1A or 1B from across the road near the sea. Buy your ticket from the Tisak booth and remember to stamp it on the bus. The Villa Amfora is close to bakeries and supermarkets. Our room was quiet at night and we slept well.

    The main negative about this place is that it is really a restaurant and the accomodation is very much secondary. There is no-one to ask for information. When I asked staff about buses to the old town, they claimed they did not know. I found out all the information I needed from the waitress in a much friendlier restaurant further up the street. We met the owner of the Villa Amfora on the last day of our stay when we checked out. I told him there should be someone manning the reception desk or at least a bell for summoning someone. It would have made a difference to us if the staff had been a bit more friendly and welcoming. We were put off right away from the disinterest shown when we checked in. I don't need people to be friendly or gushing, but to have to approach 3 members of staff before one bothers to check us in is unacceptable.

    Our other complaint is that our room was not cleaned on our second day despite the fact we were out all day. We returned in the evening to find clean towels left on the ironing board outside the door, but no attempt had been made to do anything in the room. This also put me off the place in a big way.

    As Gruz is an excellent location and the room was comfortable and quiet, this place could be really good with a bit more effort from the staff. We had intended to eat in the restaurant here too, as it is supposed to be good but again as we were not impressed with the staff did not do so.

used baby stuff

by daused

I'm planning a trip to Dubrovnik with two small children and I'm wondering if there are any used baby stores in the area. I hate to buy new at Turbo Limac since I'll only be using the stuff for three weeks before giving it away before we head for home. I just need a stroller, portable crib (pack and play) and some car seats.

Any leads would be appreciated.

Re: used baby stuff

Hi! As far as I know there are no such stores in Dubrovnik (second hand stores are very, very rare in Croatia overall). But, contact RODA (It's a non- governmental association- Parents in Action), web site www.roda.hr, contact is on www.roda.hr/kontakt.php (it's in Croatian but to make things easier: Vase ime=Your name, Vas e-mail= Your e-mail, Vas komentar= Your comment (question)) as I saw they have various sales of baby stuff in various towns and you can contact them and they'll probably refer you to active members in Dubrovnik who might know about it or will arrange it for you. Or try www.crodream.com which has a site in English and advertises a lot of things in various places in Croatia. Hope this helps.

Travel Tips for Dubrovnik

Pearl of Adriatica

by codrutz

Take your time, at least five hours and walk inside the fortress, exmine every building, look at every detail...go back in time when the city was populated and the people were living there as you live now in your homecity.. Superb peninsula and a unforgettable view to the Adriatic Sea..

Franciscan Monastery Stone!

by pure1942

Just outside the Franciscan Monastery is an interesting point of local tradition. There is a small stone carving of a twisted gargoyle face, which juts out of the wall. A local custom has made this face a traditional test of man’s endurance, where he must balance on the narrow ledge of the stone, facing the wall and remove his shirt, without falling off ...a lot harder than it looks!

Marina

by travelmad478

Most people don't get to the areas outside the old city in Dubrovnik, but there are many pretty spots. When we were on our way out, we had to go to the harbor to pick up our rental car. This is also where the Jadrolinija ferry terminal is located. We spent a few hours there while the National Rent-a-Car office attempted to locate our car (!), so we had a good time wandering around looking at the boats, buying cherries and strawberries in the street markets, and drinking yet more coffee in outdoor cafes.

Lumbarda

by davesut

Lumbarda had a good beach with sand, probably the only beach we saw that could be classed as sandy. You could use a bucket and spade here. Drive throough the village and on through to th ecar park by the beach. Many people walked this distance, about one mile form the village centre. Lumbarda harbour/marina was pleasant with a few cafes to pick up lunch. Sorry no picture of this.

Public Transportation

by sgrljevich

Try not to drive around. Trafic is very bad! Public transpotation will take you to where you need to go. It is reliable and cheap. The cost is 10 Kunas (1,50 Euros) one way a taxi is about 10 Euro around town. 50 Euro to the airport.
