Review Summary

Photos and Review by

Pros

  • Right on Lapad bay with views of Elaphiti Islands
  • Outdoor terraces along the waterfront offer gorgeous views
  • Must-see, renowned underground cave bar on-site
  • Outdoor pool and hot tub are small but well-maintained
  • Full-service spa features a hydrotherapy room
  • Mediterranean restaurant and bar on-site
  • Freebies include breakfast, parking, and Wi-Fi
  • Meeting spaces and a conference hall are available for business travelers

Cons

  • Necessary to drive to Old Town attractions
  • "Beach" is more of a rocky terrace
  • Fitness center is tiny
  • Some find room decor a bit bland

Bottom Line

Built on a cliff overlooking Lapad bay, Hotel More has its own private access to the Adriatic from a concrete terrace along the rocky shore. Travelers looking for a sandy beach may be disappointed, but the hotel hides a natural cave that makes Top 10 lists for coolest bars in the world. The restaurant pairs regional dishes with an extensive wine list and outdoor terrace. Rooms are posh if dated, but they have marble bathrooms with big jetted tubs. Sightseers must travel across the peninsula to get to Old Town attractions, but views of the islands are right outside.

Oyster Hotel Review

Scene

Cliffside terraces overlooking the water make for beautiful views.

Cypress trees and pines surround the hotel, isolating it from the nearby road. Wall-to-wall windows brighten dark marble floors and sharp angles in the lobby, which features a small reception space, clustered seating, and a display case of custom jewelry. The common area gives way to rough-hewn rock walls deeper into the building. Most of the action is in the back, where terraces protrude from the cliff, providing diners and sunbathers with views of the bay.

Location

On the bay northwest of city center, within driving distance of famed Old Town

Hotel More is located along Lapad bay, with a beautiful pine and cypress forest on one side and the sea on the other. It's not immediately accessible from Old Town, but the No. 6 bus stops nearby and most popular destinations are within a 10-minute drive down the shore of Dubrovnik's Babin Kuk peninsula. Ringed by ancient walls -- and partially damaged by an earthquake in the 17th century -- Dubrovnik's picturesque Old Town is a UNESCO World Heritage site packed with historic attractions in narrow limestone-paved streets. Dubrovnik Airport is a little more than 30 minutes southeast by car.

Rooms

Rich wood and private balconies can be found in rooms outfitted in a dated nautical theme.

The 36 rooms and four suites of Hotel More have nautically themed decor that's begun to show its age. Bright blue carpets invoke the sea with rippling green patterns, and the rich wood furniture is reminiscent of a stately ship's cabins, but the overall palate is dated. Sitting areas have dark beige armchairs, and work desks come with sleek chrome lamps that seem slightly out of place. Many rooms have private balconies and either sea or garden views, and suites have outdoor hot tubs. The marble bathrooms have big, jetted shower/tub combos and thoughtful touches like lighted vanities and foot stools. 

Features

A unique cave bar, full spa, terrace on the sea, and free breakfast, among other amenities 

During the building of the hotel in 2007, a cave was uncovered -- and subsequently turned into a one-of-a-kind bar with multiple levels and many rocky nooks to enjoy a cocktail or coffee. The hotel was quick to preserve both the natural beauty of the cave and the animal life living in the water, which remains protected by special lighting and a glass floor (all inspected and approved by the Speleological Institute). More typical hotel highlights include a small outdoor pool and hot tub overlooking the bay. There's also a concrete "beach" terrace at the water's edge, allowing for direct access to the sea. The third-floor spa has a full range of massages and treatments, as well as a sauna and hydrotherapy tub. The fitness room is tiny, cramming in a few cardio and weight training machines between a cave wall and mirror. Breakfast is free and includes hot options like eggs cooked to order. For breakfast and lunch, the hotel's Restaurant More -- the latter word meaning "sea" in Croatian -- serves regional and Mediterranean dishes like lobster and rocket salads, monkfish stews, and Dalmatian-style steaks paired with an extensive wine list. For business travelers, meeting spaces can be set up on the premises, and a conference hall is also available.
