Looking like a sleek ocean liner moored on a hillside overlooking the Adriatic Sea, the Valamar Dubrovnik President is the place for five-star seaside luxury. Sprawling over the Babin Kuk peninsula four miles north of Dubrovnik Old Town, the hotel offers the classic Croatian beach experience, with a choice of three restaurants, bars, spa, indoor and outdoor pools, and a secluded stretch of pebbly beach with an adjoining dive centre. Every room in the hotel has a sea-facing terrace, giving you prime views of the Elaphiti islands and spectacular sunsets - and once the sun goes down, the sea is romantically lit up by underwater lighting. A bus just outside the hotel get you to the Old Town in 20 minutes.

We love the Deluxe Double room on the first floor, with the fragrant garden just below, great for sitting on the balcony watching the sun go down. And the beach bag with flip-flops and towel is a nice touch.
