A little late in writing this review but just had to do it. Stayed at the fabulous Valamar Argosy in late June and had a great time. Arrived disappointly in pouring rain but it brightened up the next day and allowed us to do some sightseeing in Dubrovnik reached by bus at the end of the road, which is the last stop so you always know where to get on and off!
The hotel itself is fabulous, if a little dated on the outside but the rooms were lovely. We changed our room twice - the staff were so accommodating - as we wanted a room with a sea view and boy did we get it. We had room 158 which was located right at the front of the hotel by the play area and every time we opened the curtains in the morning we had the most fantastic view of the sea and the island opposite - magical! So thank for accommodating our needs, much appreciated.
We were halfboard and expected to go out most nights as other places we have stayed the food has not been good but there was no need to at the Valamar as the food was excellent plus who could deny we had the best view every evening from the outdoor restaurant especially watching the evening sunset which was to die for. Breakfast was equally as good, one morning I counted 10 different fruits and as I am not into fried stuff the light breakfast counter was so appreciated -could not fault the food in any way. The pool area was amazing clean and the pool itself great for doing lengths plus being infinity allowed you once again to gaze longingly at the fantastic view and pretend the workplace was on another planet!
The one night we did go into Dubrovnik we went to the Restaurant "with the best view in Dubrovnik" just as you get off the bus, I think it was called the Terrace but not sure. Anyway it was fantastic with lovely food and a view over the castle and sea to die for. A lovely place for a special meal.
But back to the Argosy, so worth a visit with walks both ways from the Hotel, one to reach the harbour where the cruise liners come in and the other a lovely cliff walk taking in beautiful views and fabulous Cliffside hotels. A must to visit is the Cave Bar attached to the MORE hotel where a cocktail bar has been built into the side of the cave with fairy ceiling lights - magical!
So thank you everyone at the Valamar for making our stay so pleasant and lovely, we shall return, just wish we had stayed longer than 7 days and that we had more than 4 days of sunshine!
