Tucked into a hillside overlooking the Adriatic sea beyond, Sun Gardens provides top quality service and a haven of fun filled activities for children, within easy reach of the beautiful UNESCO heritage town of Dubrovnik.
Sun Gardens rooms range from Standard to Executive suites, and all are light and bright, with a terrace or balcony overlooking the island dotted Adriatic. The Residences at Sun Gardens are just perfect for families with between one and three bedrooms, offering the privacy of a private residence, with the conveniences of a hotel.
Dining at Sun Gardens will leave no culinary desire unfulfilled, as with the 16 bars and restaurants, guests can take their pick from fresh seafood, Italian, traditional Croatian, as well as Asian inspired menus.
If a family holiday in Dubrovnik is what you're after, then look no further - the Marco Polo kids club offers activities and crèches for little ones from age three upwards, ensuring there's a chance for everyone (including parents) to make the most of their time away. The Marina Pool is exclusively for adults, so for those without children - or those wanting to avoid their own - this is the place to come for a bit of peace. The Lemonia Pool is for everyone, and means a lively swim is possible any time of the day.
The OCCO spa has a wealth of treatments available, ensuring guests can unwind after a long day and let any stresses melt away. For those after a little more physical exertion, the advanced sports centre will get your heart racing; football, tennis, squash, yoga and pilates are just some of the multitude of activities on offer.
The centre of Dubrovnik is within easy reach by road, or guests can enjoy a half hour boat journey right into the heart of the port and the Old City. As a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Old City is not to be missed, and a trip here or to any of the other staggeringly beautiful surroundings is easily bookable through the hotel too.
Just a short 10 minute boat journey away from Sun Gardens lies a pristinely white sandy beach, putting paid to the myth that only rocky beaches exist in Croatia.
