Sun Gardens in Dubrovnik is an exceptional 5 star family resort with superb facilities that is perfect for families looking for a luxury hotel which the children will love as much as the parents.
Located on the Coast 11km North of Dubrovnik and looking out over the Mediterranean and Elaphiti Islands, the resort has 201 rooms and 207 residences (one, two and three bedroom villas). Admittedly this is a large resort, but the facilities are of such a high standard and so extensive that its scale if forgiveable. In resort there are three pools an award winning spa, 5-a-side football pitch, clay tennis courts, squash courts, badminton courts, table tennis, games room, indoor climbing wall, beach volleyball and basketball, Pilates, Yoga and a fully equipped gym in addition to the exclusive pebble beach. Kayaking, diving, waterskiing, water tubing and banana boating are available from the beach’s marina and Tourdust can organise more extensive one day or multi-day kayaking expeditions in the Elaphiti Islands offshore.
There are several dining options in the resort, MaraskaBar & Lounge, Origano restaurant, Giardino restaurant, Sunset, Lemonia& Marina pool bar & grills, Cilantro restaurant, Market place (La Pasta, La Patisserie, The Market, Vino bar, The Butcher), Beach bar, SpaVitalityBar and Sport Centre bar. The size and location of the resort mean that eating off site will be more of a mission, Dubrovnik old town is a 10 minute shuttle away. The hotel offers regular road and boat shuttles to the Old Town (charged for)
Our customer's typically stay for one or two weeks. There is no typical itinerary, families enjoy relaxing by the pools, using the extensive sports facilities, spending the day exploring Dubrovnik Old Town or taking a tour out to the nearby Elaphiti Islands.
The complimentary Marco Polo Kids Club and Hideaway (run by the renowned Worldwide Kids Company) is world class with three age groups catered for (3-6, 7-11 & 12-17 year olds). The club is open 7 days a week in season with all staff are fully trained and operate childcare services to Worldwide Kids Company standards. Various activities include arts and crafts, sports, culture and team games. For teenagers, activities include water sports, cooking lessons, mocktail making and team sports. Some activities will be payable and costs will be advised on the activity programme.
We can arrange a wonderful guided day sea kayaking in the Elaphiti Islands during your stay. For the more adventurous we recommend combining a week at Sun Gardens with a 4 day kayaking tour of the Islands staying at small guesthouses on the Islands.

The main season in Croatia runs from April to September. The weather during Easter is often lovely, as long as you are aware sea temperatures can be cold. May Half Term is a wonderful time to be here. The summer holidays are peak season, whilst October Half Term is very hit and miss with frequent storms blowing through with strong wind and rain.
My kayak tour with Tour dust is an experience I will treasure forever. I believe Johnny is exactly the type of guide everyone hopes for on a trip like this. Upbeat, funny, enthusiastic, and an incredible level of skill in this sport. I have been kayaking for many years, but, being over 60 years old now, I certainly appreciated knowing we were in such very, very capable hands.
And the other people who took part in the trip? What a great bunch! It's hard to believe we were mostly complete strangers just one week ago. I will treasure those friendships forever as well.

On our final night now in Dubrovnik sadly.
Thoroughly enjoyed the first half Tourdust arranged with all the kayaking etc. our son was very sad to leave and preferred the earlier part of our trip to the second half chilling by the pool!
Accommodation was 'ok', activities were just enough, some people couldn't keep up with the amount of kayaking but for us it was just the right amount. Johnny and Mattie were superb, they went out of their way to ensure everyone was happy all the time (I hope Tourdust look after them as they are a great asset to the company!!).
They took us to some great restaurants, arranged all the transport and ensured everyone was safe during the activities.
5 out of 5 to you guys, we hope to be back!!

A few comments on our recent trip
Organization Excellent including pick up and drop off
Our guide Amir was friendly, spoke good English, and competent as our instructor / guide, he went out of his way to give us a good holiday.
Accommodation , First island was fantastic with a friendly family, Breakfast was outstanding
second island was good although the breakfast wasn't up to the standard if the first.
Equipment was all of good quality and in good condition
overall the holiday was relaxing , enjoyable with sufficient paddling for two experienced paddlers,
the restaurants and bars produced food which was fresh, tasty and reasonably priced
we would highly recommend the holiday to friends and family
we will hopefully return again to do more in Croatia in the future
