Less is more ... rather than overwhelming you with volumes of travel tips, here is a specific list of exclusive recommendations with Mr & Mrs Crystal's stamp of approval.

hotels

Bellevue

Perched on a rock above Miramare Bay, yet only a 10 minute walk from the old city’s entrance gates, Hotel Bellevue is one of the best hotel choices outside of the city walls. Its 93 guestrooms are decorated in modern, nautical style and its spa complex, cinema and small private beach create a veritable taste of intimacy.

Excelsior

A recent renovation has transformed this iconic Mediterranean hotel into a luxurious classic. The hotel is built into the side of a cliff directly on the Adriatic, providing unobstructed ocean views from its tastefully furnished rooms. In addition, guests can enjoy amazing views of the harbour from its numerous intimate terraces and feel truly spoilt splashing in the pool “built into” the Adriatic.

Pucic Palace Hotel

This luxury boutique hotel, in an impeccably restored 18th century villa, is centrally based in the historic town on a prominent baroque square. It allows guests exclusive access to a nearby beach club and perches itself charmingly over the morning local market. You will truly feel like you are in Dubrovnik when you open the shutters to admire views of the famed Dubrovnik red roofs and the famous Rector’s Palace. This is by far the best hotel in the historic town.

what we think

With its tall ramparts, towers and turrets, Dubrovnik is the image of a child’s fairy-tale fortress. Through the drawbridge of the Western Gate, the main street which dissects the town exudes old-world charm. Tour the city walls enjoying picturesque views of the old town’s orange-tiled rooftops and reward your exercise with a piece of one of the world’s best cakes. Take a stroll down the pedestrianised century-old cobblestone streets, soak up the warm honey-coloured limestone, medieval arches, Moorish facades and Arabian windows. Delight in the secretive alleys and lively piazzas. Watch the sun set behind your cocktail at a bar carved out of the Dalmation cliffs with mesmerising views of the breathtaking coast. A true jewel of the Adriatic.
