With its traditional charm, mediaeval quaintness, and a stunning Adriatic coastline with more than 1,185 islands, islets and reefs, Croatia definitely lays stake to being one of the most beautiful parts of Europe. Despite the tragedy of the recent war, its charms remain largely intact; most of the tourist areas have been lovingly recreated . Combining a wealth of history, culture and unrivalled natural beauty, Croatia is a truly memorable destination and of course coupled with a comfortable hotel, great pools and entertainment, the children will be happy too!
The climate is Mediterranean along the Adriatic coast, meaning warm dry summers and mild winters, with 2,600 hours of sunlight on average yearly – it is one of the sunniest coastlines in Europe.
We’ll be staying on the Dubrovnik Riviera, a lovely location just a short 1 euro bus ride away from the mediaeval city of Dubrovnik. Dubrovnik has enchanted many of the course of its history, George Bernard Shaw claimed “those who seek paradise on Earth should come to Dubrovnik and see Dubrovnik”, as well as, famously, describing it as “the pearl of the Adriatic”. Dubrovnik truly is a stunning city with its amazing Old Town, which became a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1979.
Dubrovnik is clearly special. The baroque buildings , pretty squares and cobbled streets are surrounded by a magnificent circle of city walls . The centre of the old town offers a wide variety of cafés and shops with outstanding monuments at either end. Churches, monasteries and museums ornamented with finely carved stone recall an eventful history and a vibrant artistic tradition. Beyond the city is a heavenly landscape of beaches, wooded peninsulas and a sea strewn with lush islands.
Croatia offers something for everyone. Sightseeing in Dubrovnik, mountain cable cars, island tours, an excursion to the beautiful Montenegro (remember the Daniel Craig James Bond movie?), visits to nearby towns and villages to experience the traditional Croatia, evening beach party…For the active there is also a good measure of quad bike safaris and water sports available.

Within a stunning Mediterranean garden setting, our hotel sits on the shores of the Babin Kuk peninsula just a few minutes bus ride away from the magic of Dubrovnik’s old quarter. Well away from busy roads and in a woodland setting, the location is great for children, the pool area and outside bar also enjoy lovely sea views. The hotel is beside a small pebble beach where you can relax and watch the cruise liners pass as they head for the Dubrovnik port or simply watch the sun set.
With the spotlight on sports, entertainment and non-stop fun in the sun for all ages, the hotel is a great choice for families and activity-seekers. There’s a range of activities on offer from aerobics to table tennis, swimming lessons to football. Water sports fans can also indulge in diving, sailing and water-skiing from the shores of the small Copacabana beach beside the hotel. Children will love the fun and creative activities at the mini club, the base for a full programme of games and competitions, while teens have their own cool diversions such as talent shows and discos.
Accommodation is in twin or triple rooms with views of green Mediterranean gardens. There are expansive terraces circling the large swimming pool, which, with gentle slopes and shallow areas is ideal for swimmers and non swimmers alike. The rooms all have a French balcony – see the gallery pictures for this.
The buffet style restaurant offers indoor and outdoor dining, there’s also a snack bar beside the pool.

" We had a lovely time and it just what we needed. We were pleased with how we were
free to do as much or as least with the group and there was no pressure or hard sell on
activities etc. It was very comforting to be abroad but part of a group for support where
needed. The highlight? The group, my daughter being happy and Croatia. Beautiful! "
" Jo was a great coordinator, very entertaining, and liked very much by all. "
" Lovely area and perfect hotel for the kids - not too formal that you had to worry.
The highlight? Jack says it was the pool and the inflatables at the beach. For me it was
the trip into Dubrovnik and the walls. The coordinator Jo really did look after us. She was
always there to help when I needed it. "
