Hotel Dubrovnik Palace, Dubrovnik, Croatia
Built into a slope rising from Lapad Bay and framed by the pine forests of Pletka Hill above, Hotel Dubrovnik Palace suits its majestic position beautifully. This five-star hotel dating from 1972 really is a waterside palace, with all of its 308 rooms featuring balconies with views of the Adriatic Sea. Everything maximises those marvellous west-facing vistas, from the two outdoor pools and rocky beach to the indoor pool and all three of its restaurants. With so much to do - tennis, dive centre, spa, jogging trails on Pletka Hill - it's tempting to make just the occasional foray into town. It's peaceful here on the south-western tip of Lapad peninsula, yet the hotel is on a bus route to the Old Town three miles away.
From this hotel, you feel as if you're far from the madding crowd, yet it's an easy bus ride into the Old Town.
A scenic seafront location, the hotel is on the edge of the Velika and Mala Petka Forest Park. It's a 20-minute bus ride to Dubrovnik's Old Town.
By plane: direct flights from London to Dubrovnik take 2 hours 30 minutes. The hotel is a 30-minute drive from the airport. Free parking available. skyscanner.net

Food & Drink
Every bar and restaurant came with enchanting sea views, and it was hard to beat having a cocktail by the pool. Maslina's Fisherman's Pot for two is a virtuoso feast of crabs, shellfish and white fish in a delicate wine and herb sauce.
