This luxury hotel has a great dining scene and a spot on the beach. It’s even got a casino.
Tiered into a cliffside, this contemporary hotel gets panoramic views across the Adriatic Sea. It’s right on a rocky beach with bathing platforms. And just above the beach you’ll find a big pool and a huge spa.
The hotel has 3 restaurants, with special mention going to the seafood place. It also has the only casino in town. Dubrovnik’s old town is about a 20-minute walk away.
Enjoyed our stay for a week. Booked a sea view room - worth the upgrade. Breakfast buffet was plentiful. Location was good - a mile from old town. Easy walk or you can take local buses that run often (bus stop is a short walk from hotel).More

Dubrovnik and The Rixos Libertas
Firstly, Dubrovnik is an absolute must visit. A beautiful setting, a spectacular coastline, a historic and fascinating old town, all blended with a wonderful climate, delightful restaurants at amazingly good value makes this an essential holiday location. I can't do it justice here, you'll just have to go and see it yourself.
If you are going to visit,then the Rixos Libertas is also recommended. It's beautifully situated just 20 minutes walk outside the Old Town (Pile Gate) and sits in a gorgeous bay overlooking the sea and facing toward the Old Town and Lokrum Island. A fabulous terrace sits above the sea and a few steps down allow you to sample some of the clearest, warmest swimming you'll ever experience.
Our room was excellent with fabulous views, plenty of space and all the usual mod cons, except a way to make tea.
The breakfast buffet was sumptuous with every dish you could imagine, including eggs made to order, loads of fresh fruit and many other delicious choices.
We had lunch on the terrace only once, but whilst being pricier than town, the food was excellent, as was the service.
The staff were cheerful, polite and could not be more helpful.
In summary, highly recommended.More

Ended up spending a night here quite by accident and have to say that it was very pleasant. Large hotel with lots of ammneties - think the think Iiked best about this hotel was the size of the room. Hotel was quite modern with lots on indoor shopping etc but unlike some hotels in this region the rooms themselves were quite large and very modern - good size bed , great bathroom/shower etc - didnt feel cramped - room had balcony with view if the ocean. Free parking, wifi etc.More

Nice Hotel but needs some attention
I recently stayed at the Rixos Hotel Libertas overall the hotel was ok, however definitely not a five star hotel, I would say with all areas considered and the overall experience that the hotel is more attuned to a 4 star. After arriving at the hotel the check in was seamless and very prompt, which was perfect to our surprize the room was ready at noon and we were able to go to the room straight away. We stayed in one of the executive suites the room was very spacious and ticked most of the boxes the view from the balcony was lovely. There was a very small fridge in the room, there was also a kitchenette albeit it wasn't stocked with anything. The room could of really done with a coffee machine and or tea making facility as the price you pay for this type of room you would normally get this and much more included. The balcony had glass panels in and we noticed that one of the panels to the right hand side wasn't anchored very well and so needs attention. The TV was hit and miss and the signal not very strong so we kept losing the channels.
The breakfast spread had a wide variety to satisfy most palettes however, I would like to point out that the staff in the hot food section should really wear gloves when preparing food for hygiene reasons. I noted this a couple of times during my stay.
One evening we decided to dine in the hotels a l carte restaurant, we ordered our meals my starter came out but the waiter forgot all about my main course and so my partner and I ate separately which is definitely not on and so more effort should go into the service and waiters should write down the orders!!!!!! not very impressed with that restaurant.
We ate a couple of times through the day at the Azzure bar in the pool area a nice selection was offered and good service received.
We used the gym frequently they had all the machines available for a good workout however, they are a little dated.
We braved the pool a couple of times as it was freezing some my top tip is to go in the sea first and then into the pool!!! the pool decking area was very tired and could do with replacing in general definitely wear shoes on this surface as some areas are quite rough wear the wood has worn away.
The sea was very inviting however access from the hotel is via some steps which are a little worn and so its best to add a little caution when getting in and out. There was a small cove that was in the next bay from the hotel I didn't venture over there as there were so many steps to ascend and descend I think that it was also a public area and not necessarily part of the hotel. A few days we noticed that people that were not staying at the hotel were coming into the pool area to use both the hotels pool and the sea access on all occasions they weren't challenged by staff apart from 1 time, we saw a security guy that would walk through but again no one was challenged.
Outside of the gym/pool pool table, ice hockey game there are no other facilities to the hotel in the week that we stayed there I only saw a piano being played once. And so when the heavens opened dramatically all you could do was go to your room!
As I said earlier the hotel was nice but to gain a five star status and to keep it you have to make sure that all areas of the hotel (Rooms/Ambience/Service/Facilities/Food/Experience etc..) are all five star too! This unfortunately wasn't the case at the Rixos Libertas.
Overall experience an ok hotel but nothing special and could do with an overhaul.More
With its beautiful views and impressive lobby the hotel gives a great 1st impression. It is a 20 min walk to the old town and has complimentary parking as well as free wifi.
Now to the many negatives: our room on the executive floor (12) had non working lights in the cupboard, drawers that would not open due to cupboard doors preventing their opening! I can't belive this point has never been commented on and worst never been fixed. We had limescale on the showerhead which i cleaned and wobbly taps which my husband tightened! On arrival there was a dustbin full of water in our room! one night we had sheets smaller than the bed which was very uncomfortable. The 12th floor corridor has paper peeling off the walls and carpet lifting off the floor. Non sea view rooms do not have balconies. At the beach.. The. Sea is accessed by steps straight into deep water. 3 of these steps are broken. Many of the tiles leading down are missing.
The staff overall pay no attention to detail. At breakfast we were never welcomed and noone ever offered us tea and coffee without us asking for it. However when asked to do something staff were always positive in their response which may indicate their errors are down to poor training. Perhaps the management should spend less time replying to TripAdvisor comments and spend more time actionning improvement. In summary, this is not a 5* hotel.More
