“Nice hotel, nothing special”
Reviewed 21 June 2011

We booked a week in this hotel. It has pleasant comfortable rooms and is of a reasonable standard. It is also a pleasant walk into the Old Town. The terrace bar had live background music on an evening. There was a swiming pool and a platform access to the sea.
We were b&b the breakfast was ok if a little bland, there was no change in what was available throughout the week and nothing cooked to order eg an omlette chef. The staff were also clearing away fifteen minutes before the 10.30am close. We ate in the restaurant one night and were disappointed I had mussles for main ( I know, always a mistake in the med!) the portion was very small and the mussels poor quality. I could understand the latter bit however my wife ordered a steak which was tough and badly cooked. They did however notice that she had left it offered and alternative and refunded the cost, so good in that respect.
The speciallity Victoria restaurant was closed for a refurb but we did have cocktails at their terrace bar. fabulous views of the Walled city but the dry martinis had bits of ice floating in them so not so dry!
A nice hotel but lacked a bit of sparkle.

Stayed for 4 nights and was pleasantly surprised. Beautiful hotel, fantastic rooms and an unbelievable view. Small but adequate pool overlooking the adriatic.Only a short walk to the old town. (though the uphill walk back can be though... but who cares when you have such a great hotel to come back to. Of course they are many beautiful hotels around, but what sets this hotel apart is their staff. Everybody, from the front desk, doormen, cleaning staff, restaurant workers are polite and pleasant. Croatians must be the friendliest people around...

Rooms not great. Perfectly clean and tidy but smaller than we would be used to.

Breakfast on veranda magnificent view.

Lounge area by sea perfect with great swimming.

All in all great place for a few days!

We spend a fantastic four days in this hotel, and highly recommend it. The service was excellent, and the setting/location was amazing. It is a short distance from the old town, maximum 10 minutes walk at a leisurely pace (but up hill on the way back). We did not have a sea view from our room, but it was not necessary as the view from the outdoor terrace/restaurant/bar and pool is all of the old town and the sea. The hotel really is in breathtakingly beautiful location. We booked directly with the hotel and they were very helpful with any questions we had prior to our visit. The breakfast was served in the outside and was excellent, both food and the views. The one slight negative was the dinner we had in La Caravelle restaurant, which was not good. The hotel is surrounded with cypress trees and birds, which added to the lovely athmosphere. The hotel has plenty of good value packages, and the dinner in sister hotel in Cavat is not to be missed. Grand Villa Argentina provide a transfer to Cavat and back, by the hotel driver who is a very interesting man. The hotel also organised a day trip as requested with Amico tours, who again we could not fault. They were a local tour group provider which catered for small groups. Overall, we would give Gran Villa Argentina five stars, without question.

Room Tip: Don't worry about sea view from room.

We stayed at the hotel the last week in May and can't say enough good things about this hotel. two of our friends stayed next door at the Exelcior and while that is a nice hotel as well, Grand Villa has it beat. First, grand Villa is more charming and has more character. Second, the service was more personal and staff were more involved, better sense of engagement and humor while being professional. Third, the pool and surrounding area is better.
it is a delightful place to stay with many nice places to sit and relax and take in the spectacular view. the location is easy walking distance to the old town. I highly recommend Grand Villa, I can't wait to go back. Hands down, one of the nicest places I have been.

We chose to stay at the Grand Villa Argentina as the final leg of our Italian/Croatian honeymoon. We couldn't have picked a more wonderful place.

We did splurge a bit for a deluxe room in the Villa Argentina, but it was worth it. The views were amazing and the room well appointed. We had a small balcony, though I'm not sure all the rooms have this feature. The whole hotel does fall inline within 5 star standards, and it had some 'old world' charm that I think other, more modern, 5 star hotels lack.

It's just a short 10 minute walk to the old city, and it's something that we found added to the appeal rather than a detraction. The views are something that you wouldn't get if you stayed in the old city and we appreciated the peaceful quite of the grounds over the hustle and bustle of the old city.

The swimming pool and seaside seating were very agreeable, and something we appreciated over the rocky beaches for the ease of entry and exit for swimming.

Overall, we'd recommend the hotel whole heatedly to anyone looking for a romantic vacation. I'm not sure we would have had such a good time if we were in the more modern rooms, or in a room without an ocean view. Spend a little extra and I'm sure you'll find it's worth it.

Room Tip: Reserve early and online to save.

My fiancee and I stayed in this hotel for 3 days while we visited Dubrovnik. I would highly recommend it.

Cons: WiFi did not work in our room. We were prepared for this, as other reviews on tripadvisor seemed to indicate the same. While it didn't work in our room, we didn't have a problem taking our iPad out to the lobby where WiFi works just fine. The other potential con is that the hotel is located a little bit away from the old town (perhaps 10 minutes or so). It isn't prohibitively far by any stretch, it just got a little old doing it several times per day.

Pros: Given our recent engagement, we were upgraded to a water-view room. We had a beautiful window that overlooked the Adriatic Sea. In addition, the straff was extremely friendly and helpful. Breakfast was complimentary. Guests eat their breakfasts on a beautiful deck/balcony that overlooks the Adriatic. It was truly stunning! Lastly, the hotel offers two amazing pools (one inside and one outside). The outside pool is located DIRECTLY on the Adriatic. Amazing.

Overall highly recommended!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Grand Villa Argentina is Dubrovnik’s traditional luxury address, combining exclusivity and attention to detail with spectacular views of the sea, backdropped by pine tree-clad mountains. This five-star hotel in Dubrovnik has a regal, old-world charm. Just minutes from the Old Town, it has been an exclusive enclave in the city for nearly 60 years. Sitting on a steep cliffside, leading down to the sea, the views of the Adriatic stretch from the island of Lokrum round to the old harbour of Dubrovnik. As soon as you walk into the hotel reception, the incredible scenery stops you in your tracks. Lush gardens, with stone fences and secluded corners in which to sit, are filled with lemon, wild orange, rosemary, lavender and bay leaf plants – the flavours of a Mediterranean kitchen. Whether you’re sunbathing on the private beach, with its seaside pool, dining on the restaurant terraces or quietly reading your book in the gardens, spectacular scenery follows you wherever you go. ... more   less
