We went to Dubrovnik for around 10 days a couple of summers ago, and loved it.
We stayed in the Sun Gardens hotel - which although pricey was pretty good. We opted for an apartment - in hind sight, we would have been far cheaper taking a hotel room. I am a blogger, and wrote a post on both the highlights of our trip:

I also wrote an independent review of our stay at the Sun Garden:

Hopefully you may find them useful, if you are considering Dubrovnik as a destination - and feel free to PM me if you have any specific questions. Happy Holidays.
