Yes - the basic rooms could cost up to $300/night but the views from this hotel and the amenities are priceless. If you are short on time like we were, take advantage of the hotel beach and pool for some true R & R during the day, and head into the old town after 4pm to avoid all of the traffic from cruises. The ships dock here daily and can bring in almost 10,000 visitors per day! For the hotel pool, during peak season, I would suggest going down early, right after breakfast, to reserve some lounge chairs. We went the first week of September which is technically no longer peak season, and never had a problem getting a lounger, but did notice that there were very few of them and sometimes none left at around 2pm. It's really nice having both the pool and the sea especially for me since I'm quite afraid of deep water - it was perfect to cool off in the pool. While down at the beach area, you can order drinks and also go up to the Beach Restaurant for lunch. Check the hours however since depending on the season, they vary.
Should it rain during your stay, don't let that hold you back. The hotel also has an indoor pool and spa facilities. We took advantage of these and also booked the sauna for an hour to unwind while it was raining outside. The rain stopped after a couple of hours and we were the first ones back down at the outdoor pool. The breakfast here is much better than other European cities I've visited. You get an entire buffett (fresh bread, cheese, eggs, sausage, bacon, pastries, etc).and if you're not happy with the options, you can request that something is made for you outside of the buffett. The service at this hotel is what I believe truly sets it apart from any other place I've visited. The hotel staff in unbelievably attentive and courteous. During our stay here, we also had dinner at the hotel restaurant Victoria, TWICE. We felt that the restaurants in town were all too similar with very limited options. The restaurant at the hotel had amazing French cuisine and the view of Dubrovnik at night was unreal. I highly recommed this hotel if you are looking for some luxury and good service.
- 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
