Sheraton Dubrovnik Riviera Hotel, on Croatia’s stunning Dalmatian Coast, is a newly opened hotel along the beachfront, overlooking the Adriatic Sea in Srebreno. This modern pad opened its doors in the summer of 2015 and provides a tranquil escape from the hustle and bustle of the country’s busier, tourist-filled destinations. Here, you can indulge in a truly relaxing escape, with a beautiful beach on your doorstep and delicious independent restaurants and historic sights nearby.
Lush green gardens envelop the resort, running right down to the picture-perfect beach.

How to Get There
Gorgeous hotel - we used the hotel transfers to pick us up from the airport and as we came through to arrivals they were there waiting for us! Very smooth transfer. Upon arrival at the hotel we were greeted and shown to our room after we checked in. We were in a deluxe room (246) which was beautiful. The balcony was enormous and had great views over the sea. The rooms are well soundproofed - I’m really sensitive to noise when I’m trying to sleep and we heard nothing!
Breakfast was plentiful and I can honestly say it’s one of the best hotel breakfast I’ve ever had - I’ve travelled extensively!!!
There is a small mall up the road from the hotel with a supermarket if you want to get drinks/snacks for the room. We only had breakfast at the hotel so can’t comment on any other meals - we had our eebing meals at a steakhouse up the road and at a pizzeria called “Tutto bene” which is near the little mall. The service there was great and you can take away.
We got a water taxi into Dubrovnik & we also had an afternoon in Cavtat - we got the local bus there. The swimming pool & leisure facilities at the hotel are great - we spent one evening in the indoor pool! Everywhere was absolutely spotless! We were there for 4 days at the end of October and we’re realky lucky with the weather. If I went back to this part of Croatia I would definitely stay here again!
The hotel is beautiful with very nice and helpful staff, the water taxi leaves from the hotel to take you into Dubrovnik and surrounding Islands, for late October we were lucky with the weather and enjoyed 4 days of sunshine .
We stayed here for a family holiday in mid July and had mixed feelings about this hotel :
Pros- the position of the hotel is perfect, leads onto a seaside promenade so you can stroll easily to milini and to restaurants and catch a boat to Dubrovnik and cavtat. It is only 15 minutes from the airport.
The delux bedroom was spacious ,modern and the bed was a high standard and comfortable and the bathroom was huge with a bath and walk in shower.there was plenty of space for 3 adults.
The breakfast was excellent in terms of the choice and the spacious layout with nice touches such as fresh smoothies .
The poolside attendants were very helpful with positioning the umbrellas etc
The service generally was very haphazard in many areas of the hotel and that is why it is not a true 5 star hotel.
On arrival the reception staff were not welcoming and were very robotic , there was no interest shown to us.we were not treated like a valued guest. They were efficient.we were not shown to our room .the porter brought our cases to our room .
During our week stay , we had one day where we had no maid service as we were in our room when they wanted to clean . The room was clean on arrival but during the week cleaning was minimal. We had dirty cups left on our balcony for 2 days and the balcony floor was not swept at all during our stay.
At breakfast the service of coffee at the table was very erratic. A few days we had coffee within seconds of arriving and most days we were not offered a drink at all so ended up going to the machine. This could be easily improved if staff are given set tables to serve coffee to as there were plenty of staff but no organisation or attentive service.
The bar service around the pool was also unpredictable. We asked for a drink and were told that he would be back in a few minutes but he never returned !
When we sat outside the pool bar for lunch , again we often waited for 10-15 minutes before anyone brought a menu and on one occasion we were not acknowledged at all.
There was no atmosphere in the hotel bar in the evening .It was often completely empty which is a shame.
On our day of departure we were not leaving until 4pm but had to check out of our room at 12pm. The day before we enquired if we could have a later checkout and were told to check the next day. We checked the next day and were told “no hotel is at capacity” with no other information given. I had to return to reception again to ask about where to store our luggage and if there was a curtesy room where we could shower and change before our flight. We were told to shower in the spa . My previous experience of 5 star hotels is that you can book a half hour slot to use a shower in a complementary room and at least feel looked after as a valued guest. Not have to use a communal shower and to pack your possessions into your suitcase in the reception !
Overall we loved croatia and had a good week but found the hotel lacked the personal touch , was very clinical and corporate and the service was sporadic and disappointing.
