Dubrovnik Palace Hotel
Located just west of Dubrovnik’s Old Town on the Lapad peninsula, this 10-story luxury hotel overlooks the Elaphite Islands off the Adriatic coast. All 308 guest rooms face the sea and come equipped with a private balcony and flat-screen TV. Outside, a rocky beach provides direct access to the water, while three pools provide plenty of space to sunbathe. The hotel also has a spa with an indoor pool, as well as a PADI scuba diving center. Dining options include two waterfront restaurants and the signature Elafiti Restaurant, which serves traditional Mediterranean fare amid panoramic views of the islands.
