This luxury hotel is very well located, few blocks from old town, with an amazing landscape and instalations. The rooms are spacious. Everything there is carefully prepared to make you feel in a luxury, beautiful and nice life. The staff is attentious, they gave me a free upgrade even without asking.. But, the breakfast is a shame! Scrambled eggs overcooked with a bad taste, bad orange juice (pasteurized) and I really think that a 5 star hotel must serve fresh squeezed orange juice (and they have oranges), the coffe comes cold, the pancakes also is not good.

We rented a car and drove from Split to Dubrovnik. We arrived at Excelsior to see beautiful views of the sea from their lobby. My husband had booked a seaview room with a balcony, but when we checked in we were given an upgrade to the most fantastic suite I have ever seen! The views from our balcony were simply breathtaking! We had 2 bathrooms, a comfortable bed, and even a living room that we were able to plug our Chromecast into to watch Netflix. It was perfect. We checked out the spa facilities and thoroughly enjoyed the hot tubs and swimming pool. The breakfast was the best we've had at any hotel in the world. There were multiple options on the buffet, and if none of that suited you, you could order off the menu. We both had eggs benedict one morning, and it was delicious! I even was able to start my morning off with a mimosa. My husband's birthday occurred during our stay, and we booked couples' massages which were also heavenly. As wonderful as all of the amenities at the hotel were, what made it even more spectacular was the service we received from everyone we came into contact with! Antun at the front desk was amazingly hospitable and helpful, and Ante, our bellman was super friendly and engaging! On my husband's birthday we went on a hike in the morning and returned to our room to find a birthday cake for us to enjoy and a letter wishing him a happy birthday from the hotel! Ante even stopped us in the hallway to wish my husband a happy birthday. This type of service makes it where we want to return. Some hotels have fine customer service, but everyone at Excelsior went over and beyond to make us a have a memorable and pleasurable stay. The service here was leaps and bounds above every other hotel we have every stayed in.
