"Nice views in Mlini"
Good hotel that needs attention to details, beautiful view, good buffet, however the rooms had carpet worn out and dirty and the pool staff could be better trained in customer satisfaction. You had to ask twice to get answers.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Beach, pool & close enough to Dubrovnik +3star"
Lovely little resort and hotel was more than fine for a 3 star. Recommend the associated pizza restaurant & fine restaurant for evenings plus the beach restaurant for lunch. Great pool area and pleasant enough (pebbled) beach. Water taxis and hotel shuttle to Dubrovnik and nearby Cavtat - both are must see in my opinion.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good Hotel close to village amenities and beach"
We were on B & B basis and used the local paths to nearby villages. We used the Hotel restaurants in the village and the beach bar, all excellent. We also used the hotel transfer / taxi service and boat trip booking office. The siting of the Hotel is away from the crowds and nearby scenery is stunning.The beach bar had live music on most nights which […] were excellent and a superb finish to a day in the sun. Altogether a good experience. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Good location, and not bad for the price."
Arriving at the hotel, we were horrified at the condition of the beach, as tractors had been trailing up and down it to reach the building site which was for a new outdoor pool and bungalows. A member of staff apologised and explained that bad weather had delayed the building work. However, we found a very pretty beach 5 minutes walk along to the next […] village. Every day, we had to walk through a building site to reach the village. The only other negative that we found, was the unbelievably bad breakfast dishes. I have never seen or tasted anything like it, so gave up after day one and stuck to toast, cheese and yogurt. On top of this, the assistants strolled up and down with a trolley, scraping the left overs into a bucket right under our noses ! On a positive note, the hotel was clean and peaceful. Mlini village was quite pleasant with a few old buildings, a stream and a beautiful old tree. We tried 3 of the restaurants, which were all good, but the Lanterna was our favourite. The shuttle minibus was easy to book, pleasant and convenient. The bedroom was fine, but it could have been a travelodge on the M1 if you didn't look out of the window. The beds were very comfortable, with cool cotton sheets, and the bathroom was well designed although tiny. We were not allowed food or drink in our room which I thought was a bit strict ! In the evenings, we enjoyed dancing in the Piano Bar where a musician sang and played guitar to a backing track. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good location and cleanliness"
The hotel is situated midway between Dubrovnik Airport and Dubrovnik Old Town. Expect to pay approx 180kuna (about £19) for a taxi from the airport to the hotel. The hotel itself is spotless (even though it was undergoing some building work during our stay). Reception staff were helpful and attentive. Our room was in the annex, which is not as bad as […] it sounds - lovely sea view, newly fitted bathroom and a comfortable enough bed. Only negatives might be the reception area lacking much atmosphere, and the food. We were bed and breakfast, but on our night of arrival opted to pay for the evening buffet service at a cost of approx £15 a head and the food was bland and tasteless and definately not worth the money! Breakfast on the other hand was adequate and set us up for the day. The hotel beach is a little sparse, and again, lacks atmosphere. There are only three alternative restaurants close by to the hotel. The indoor pool was nice. An outdoor pool is under construction. The hotel is definately popular with an older clientele, with the average age at least 60! Special mention should go to Joseph who arranges transportation too and from the hotel. He is friendly and helpful. Buses too and from Dubrovnik and nearby Cavtat are relatively easy to negotiate, but the long slope to the bus stop could be tricky for some. Overall, a good stay and excellent base for exploring this part of the country. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Brilliant for some relaxation!"
This hotel is definitely targeted towards an older crowd, however the services available and provided are great for all. I read a number of reviews quoting the staff as rude or not very forthcoming. I think this is a misinterpretation and an injustice towards them. They were always helpful and tried to assist wherever possible. I do think their level […] of English language sometimes made them feel uncomfortable, but they could converse more than adequately. The swimming pool, gym, sauna and other amenities may cost extra (£3 per amenity), but it appeared this only applied in the evening (albeit the attendants were rarely there to accept the payment!). There is a shuttle bus that runs a return trip to Dubrovnik (7 miles away) for £5 pp or alternatively, there is a bus stop 200 yards from the hotel entrance on the main road which has regular buses (number 10) to Dubrovnik for £1.50 (the last bus back from Dubrovnik is at 0130 hours). The hotel itself is very quiet and idyllic for people looking for a relaxing break away from the hustle and bustle of the cities. There is an acoustic guitar player most nights in the bar from 9pm and drinks are relatively cheap. Breakfast was brilliant and there are a number of restaurants nearby to have a good choice of evening meals. All in all, it is a superb place and I would definitely recommend it to family and friends, but not if you're wanting an adrenaline packed holiday. The sunsets from the hotel are spectacular!

Smelly shower curtain, tired decor. Rude overstretched piano bar staff. Staying for just one night so did not have the energy or time to complain at the time.

"beautiful location for a hotel."
The hotel was of easy reach from the airport, only a 15min drive. Staff were polite and helpful, providing a brilliant service and went out of their way to arrange excursions for us. Breakfast was satisfactory, it was the same thing everyday, a bit of variety would of been nice especially for vegetarians. cleanliness of the hotel was exceptional and […] the daily cleaning of the room was good. This location was good for those who want a quiet break, not for party goers. The view from the hotel was beautiful, from the sunrise in the morning to the sunset in the evening and watching the moonlight glisten over the sea was so surreal.

"Well located hotel"
The views from and around the hotel are stunning. The hotel itself is fairly basic, having adequate amenities. We went during the London 2012 Olympics so we were often hanging out in the bar area hoping to catch some action on the TV screen. On the whole this was a much underused area of the hotel even in the evening. Food was our one disappointing […] factor. We had breakfast included and this was not great but ok if you are not fussed about the quality of what you eat. Be aware use of the gym is at an extra cost if that is one of the attractions of this hotel for you as it was for us. We decided not to use it in the end as it was charged by the hour. We did have free use of the swimming pool but as the sea is literally on the doorstep of this hotel you will probably not make use of it like us. The hotel had car hire facility on site and a number of tour operators if you wanted to see the sites and was happy to let someone take care of that. We ended up hiring a car to see more of the area. This cost about 450 Kuna's which is about £50. It's worth doing when travelling further afield otherwise use public transport, which is pretty cheap. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"good to swim and rest"
outdoor swimming pool and beach is perfect. front service is not good. public transport is not easy to access.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Das Hotel ist sauber und ist nicht supermodern aber gut eingerichtet. Ein paar Modernisierungen in den Zimmern (Bad, Balkon) sowie beim Poolbereich hat es gegeben. Letzterer ist sehr schön zum entspannen. Ich war allein dort und wurde sehr freundlich empfangen. Als Frau fühlt man sich sicher. Das Buffet bot abwechslungsreiche regionale Spezialitäten […] mit Fisch, verschiedene Fleischvariationen, viel Gemüse, Salatbar, etc. Das Restaurant hat auch eine Aussenterasse, die sehr beliebt ist. Der Service war sehr gut, die Getränke im Hotel waren preislich in Ordnung. Am Strand gibt es eine hoteleigene neue Strandbar wo man neben Cocktails auch leichte Mittagessen zu sich nehmen kann- sehr modern mit einem wunderschönen Blick aufs Meer. Lediglich die Hotelgäste im Rentenalter waren in der Mehrzahl, was mich nicht störte da ich nur Ruhe suchte und fand, nur wer Party im Urlaub sucht ist hier falsch. Für einen "Eat, Pray, Love"-Urlaub also empfehlenswert. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Rummen var rena och fräscha, inget att anmärka på. Starka lukter i korridorerna dock, lavendel, som inte alla tål även om det är en bra sak. Service på hotellet bra över lag. Konstigt att gymmet tar bra betalt för att träna vilket borde ingå i totala priset som ändå är ganska högt. Hotellets läge är bra men dock tycker jag att det inte finns så mycket […] att tillgå runt i kring i Mlini överlag.

Påske er ikke sesong i Mlini. Det meste var stengt og dessuten var været svært dårlig i 10 dager i april, derfor blir "karakteren" til hotellets beliggenhet og nabolag noe negativ. Men betjeningen veide opp for mye av det negative; vennlige, hjelpsomme og personlige.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"hôtel, proche Dubrovnik"
Important hôtel au bord de mer avec parking, proche de Dubrovnik. Nous sommes allés dans cet hôtel hors période touristique fin octobre donc nous n'avons pas d'avis sur la plage, ni sur l'hôtel en période d'affluence. Nous avons profité quand même de la piscine d'eau de mer chauffée et très propre, agréable après une grande journée à Dubrovnik. Nous […] n'avons pas déjeuner, ni diner dans cet hôtel, donc pas d'avis non plus à donner. Il y a beaucoup de choix au petit déjeuner. La chambre était propre avec une literie très correct. En revanche, la salle de bain n'est pas très propre et est petite : la porte ne s'ouvre pas entièrement car bloque sur le lavabo, la douche avec un petit rideau de douche donne sur le WC et la pomme de douche avec son flexible pas adaptée à la fixation murale.

"ruhiges Hotel am Strand"
Wir -3Erwachsene- hatten 2 Zimmer mit Meerblick und HP gebucht. Der Meerblick war toll, Frühstück OK, Abendessen wohl eher an die überwiegend älteren Reisebusgäste angepasst (kann in der Hochsaison anders sein). Geschlafen haben wir gut; in den meisten Nächten machte der Mühlenfluss das lauteste Geräusch. Nur einmal hat eine ( seltene) Gruppe Jugendlicher […] nachts die gute Akustik für laute Unterhaltungen genutzt. Der Strand ist nicht so besonders. Im Sommer gibt es eine schöne Außenpoolanlage (war im Oktober leer). Der Indoorpool ist groß und mit Meerblick, könnte aber ein bißchen Farbe an den Wänden vertragen.Wir waren mit dem eigenen Auto da, es gibt aber einen Shuttelservice nach Dubrovnik.

"Hotell i ein roleg og idyllisk landsby"
Dersom ein vil ha ein roleg ferie i ein idyllisk og roleg landsby er dette plassen. Landsbyen ligg mellom flyplassen og Dubrovnik. Det er lett å koma seg til Dubrovnik med buss, shuttlebuss frå hotellet og med båt. Mange gode restauranter i landsbyen og sjømaten var spesielt god. Vi budde i eit anneks til sjølve hotellet. Dette annekset var utan heis, […] hadde nålefilt på golvet og eit kondisjoneringsanlegg som laga bråk. Dessutan var det ein stram lukt på rommet. Desse romma treng oppussing. Hotellet ligg i ein bratt skråning ned mot sjøen og ein må difor gå i bratte bakkar og trepper for å koma seg fram. Hotellet har eit flott bassengområde og ei roleg og fin strand.

"bellissimo hotel con ottima location"
ottimo hotel sulla spiaggia,con piscine,solarium, sauna ed una buona colazione.belle camere ma personale un po' acido.Genuine Expedia guest review
Bra beliggenhet. Det er vel det mest positive å si om dette hotellet. I løpet av de 10 dagene vi var på hotellet fikk vi rene glass på rommet en gang, etter å ha etterspurt om dette. De skiftet på sengen en gang og det var etter tredje døgnet. Frokosten var kjedelig og manglet helt variasjon. Kokt bacon til frokost er ikke særlig godt. Air condition […] på rommet var alt for lite i forhold til varmen og størrelsen på rommet. Vi kunne bare kjenne en kald luftstrøm om vi satt 10cm fra anlegget, som sto montert på gulvet inntil en vegg. Videre er det nå i dag dårlig å ikke ha internett tilgang på rommet og at man må be dem om å resette ruteren for at nettet skulle virke i resepsjons området. Generelt så bar all service på hotellet preg av manglende interesse for jobbene sine. Veldig synd for dette kunne ha vært bra. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
De første to nettene ble vi plassert i et rom med nydelig utsikt, på Astarea 2. Utsikten kunne vi derimot desverre ikke nyte for om vi gikk ut på verandaen slo døren innover, uten mulighet for å lukke utenfra, og aircon slo seg derfor av. Det var utrolig høy temperatur på rommet, sikkert 29 grader, og vi sov på skift på sofaen for å ligge nært aircon. […] Trolig dårlig isolasjon og konstant solbaking på bygget førte til temperaturen. Etter to netter her fikk vi byttet over til hovedbygningen, og hadde 8 netter der som var slik vi forventet, kjølig rom, fortsatt utsikt til havet, og rent og pent. Flere restauranter å velge mellom, men vi brukte 3 dager i DUb og 3 dager i Cavtat for å få litt bedre utvalg og oppleve mer liv. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"OK Standard, Good facilities"
We enjoyed staying at Hotel Astraea, mostly because of the closeness to Dubrovnik (10 minutes with local bus), the new, fresh pool area, the calm surroundings and the cheap price. Mlini did not offer to many restaurants or pubs, but you can easily get to Dubrovnik. from the hotel. Unfortunately the breakfast wasn't the best, neither was the dinner.

Vid första anblick verkar Astarea vara ett bra hotell, men tyvärr är det en liten besvikelse. Då vi i bokningen efterfrågade havsutsikt frågade vi om detta vid check in redan. Som vi misstänkte höll vi på att få ett rum på nedre planen utan utsikt. Receptionen var dock mycket tillmötesgående och uppgraderade oss till översta våningen utan problem. Servicen […] i receptionen var mycket bra! Det finns dock annat som inte var lika bra. Rummen (vårat iaf) saknade kyl. AC i rummet fungerar inge vidare. Servicen i den sk pianobaren var usel. Han som servade oss kan aldrig blandat en drink förut. Bekvämligheter som pool, bastu, gym osv finns på hotellet, men allt kostar extra. Kostar inte så mycket, men att det inte ingår i hotellpriset är ju värdelöst. Frukosten var helt ok. Stor buffé innehållandes det mesta, men kvalitetsmässigt ingen toppklass tyvärr. Hotellets läge är dock mycket bra. Bara en kort promenad till en del fina restauranger och en del barer. Mlini/Srebreno som samhälle är mysigt och perfekt för de som bara vill slappa på semestern.

I have been to Croatia many times over the last couple of years and have loved my time there and decided to return to Dubrovnik for my 30th Birthday. Upon arrival we were shown to our well appointed rooms. The rooms have lovely comfortable beds (with good quality pillows) a TV (with standard Croatian channels and the usual BBC News etc) a newly fitted bathroom, air conditioning, generous wardrobe space and of course the balcony - the views were incredible: Mountain and sea! The hotel itself contains a lovely reception area (with money exchange facility) main bar (some evening entertainment) serving wonderful cocktails restaurant, buffet restaurant serving breakfast and evening meals, an outdoor unheated pool (with pool bar) indoor heated pool and of course the wonderful views. The hotel was kept immaculate with regular housekeeping. The food served in the main restaurant is as follows: Breakfast - continental breakfast (including rolls, meats and jams) juices, coffee, tea and cereals. Evening meals - meats (chicken, pork, beef) fish, vegetables, salads and a variety of daily dishes too (mussels which were particularly lovely) the area surrounding the hotel is beautiful and just a short stroll from the hotel grounds you can find a few local restaurants serving beautiful, typical croatian meals for fantastic prices. A little further afield you can find some wonderful restaurants there is also a main shopping area and harbour with many wonderful winding streets and sights waiting to be discovered. Book the Astarea and you will not be disapointed. Take a trip into Dubrovnik. The city is magnificent! We spent a day there and visited the harbour, the walls and took some time to out to shop too!

Excellent hotel. First Saga holiday. The Saga lady rep, Mirvana (I think) was excellent and couldn't do enough. The hotel was spotlessly clean and shiny. The setting and views were stunning. The room was basic but clean with a wonderful view from the balcony. However.... just a few points for improvement....The food was ok but could have been hotter, especially breakfast (can't they put a microwave in at the end of the servery ?). The staff were generally very helpful and friendly BUT...the restaurant manager had a severe attitude problem after we all complained about the free wine suddenly becoming undrinkable on the 4th night. He laughed in our faces and was in complete denial. To be fair, Mirvana took our complaints extremely seriously and the wine reverted back thereafter. Their fire regulations seem a bit behind the times with hardly any "Fire exit" signs, extinguishers or hoses. Some of the organised trips (I'm told) were a disappointment, visiting farms where one couldn't even buy the local produce. However the trips to Dubrovnic were interesting and worthwhile. On the last night , we had a lecture from Mirvana on the history of Croatia, which was interesting but went on far too long, when all we wanted to do was chill out over drinks. Be warned...the hotel is some way out from the city, The hotel shuttle service was good, but if you want a local bus, there's a seriously steep walk up to the road, several hundred yards long. I recommend hiring a car which we did (the hotel arranged this for quite reasonable rates). This made all the difference to our stay. Not only were we able to come and go at will, but were able to explore the coastline better, especially Montenegro which was stunning, especially the fjord. We thoroughly enjoyed Cavtat, a few miles down the coast, which was one of the few places outside the city which had some cafes open in November. A generally enjoyable experience, probably even better in the Summer, when the local facilities immediately near the hotel are more available.
"Problems with hotel staff attitudes"
11/17/14 Dubrovnik37 Dublin, Ireland
Stayed here for two weeks at the beginning of September. The miserable weather for the time of year did not help, but then put the emphasis on the hotel and staff. On the second night there was torrential rain, and unable to leave the hotel to get something to eat (like everyone else) we arrived down at the dining room at 9.10pm to be told rather brusquely that service had ended at 9pm. This turned out to be a constant feature of the holiday, especially the hotel reception staff, who seemed to regard any query or request as a challenge to be batted away with as short an answer. This sort of behaviour would not be accept, able at home. The only time I got a smile was the last day when I was presented with an unexpected local hotel tax bill. In general though I also found local people had a similar 'not very friendly' demeanour, and I would not return to Croatia again. It was an expensive holiday, there is better value for money elsewhere. Try Spain/Portugal (cheaper) or Italy (similar value, but better scenery). The only plus we took away was the visit to Dubrovnik, but that's 1/2 days visit. PS breakfast ends at 10am SHARP! and all machines are switched off pronto.

"Never would be my choice"
11/03/14 Dawn L Seoul, Seoul, South Korea
I did not stay here on my own will; my flight to Zagreb via Croatian Airlines was CANCELLED and the airline sent the passengers here. So, OK, I was not in a good mood when I got here. I have no idea where this hotel is located really, as I was just transported here in dark by a bus, and have no idea how much the rooms cost, etc. Having said that, this hotel would never be my choice ever. The rooms were mediocre at best, and service was not any better either. The only consolation was that my husband was with me, otherwise the night would be have been more miserable. Still, I give three stars because I know that my sour mood definitely played into my negative review.
"Beautiful setting lovely hotel shame the food so average. "
11/02/14 JAG979 Leigh-on Sea, United Kingdom
We went here during the half term.... There was no children there at all! The weather was great the beaches stunning. Easy trip on the bus to Dubrovnik old town and nearby Cavtat. It was extremely quite but the end of the season. We loved it. The down side although the hotel was great the food was really very average. This could be so much more. The restaurant is very dated and the food was repetitive and tired. Overall a good holiday let down only by the food and perhaps lack of evening entertainment.
"Not my First Choice"
10/22/14 frau_sauerkraut Columbia, SC
We just returned from 10 days in Mlini and stayed at several hotels in the area: Astarea, Guest House Fontana, Daniela and the New York. Out of these 4, we were the least impressed with the Astarea. The views from the rooms at each of the smaller hotels was absolutely stunning! They were spotless and had kitchens and lovely stone terraces for sitting outside under grapevines. Quaint and full of local character, which was a much more enriching experience than the sterile and modern Astarea. The owners of the smaller hotels will bend over backwards to make your stay pleasant. Many of the staff at the Astarea are hardened from dealing with crowds and it shows. We discussed this with owners at the smaller hotels and they told us it wasn't the first time they have heard complaints about the Astarea.
"A bit of paradise"
10/21/14 Rona K Inverness, United Kingdom
We travelled on a package holiday with Newmarket Holidays from Inverness, Scotland. And arrived on a nice sunny day. Hotel very clean and spotless in reception area. Our rooms were not available until 2pm so we all were able to sit out on large terrace near the bar. The hotel is in a lovely position overlooking the sea and the lift takes you down to -3 where you are able to go outside to pools and Oleander cafe bar etc. there is a walkway by the sea and surrounded by trees to small bars and it takes you to the small harbour where the boats leave for Dubrovnik and Cavtat (a beautiful place). A walk of about 20 mins takes you to Srebeno where there is a supermarket. Our room was very nice with great walk in shower always with plentiful hot water. Nice view to sea and small islands. Food good with plenty of choice. Very busy with all nationalities. Staff very good and Ana very friendly and helpful. Also Vinky . Shuttle buses to Dubrovnik and Cavtat great and always on time. Antonio the driver very mannerly and chatty. Was once a water polo player for Croatia. He deserves a new mini bus! Music every evening with guitar player. Very good. Weather very good for October so all in all a very enjoyable holiday with nice Scottish company.
"Great quiet and relaxing hotel booked through Saga"
10/19/14 Debbie355 Hartlepool
Very friendly and newly refurbished hotel; with Saga, we enjoyed the separate lounge for all inclusive drinks. The food was too good and great choice every meal. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Rooms were good with a side sea view and kept extremely clean. Enjoyed the sea water heated indoor pool and had a fantastic massage...50 mins for approx. £18, which is exceptional value. Perfect location with superb scenery of beach, Cyprus trees and hills; great for beautiful Dubrovnik, as there is a hotel shuttle bus for a small charge, and water taxis at the Mlini harbour (which is a regular service and harbour is only 5 mins from the hotel) It's not a hotel for 'entertainment' but this is not what we wanted as we wanted to relax and meet fellow Saga travellers and we had a brilliant time!
