You can't beat the views and the location near to the old town is the reason we booked this Hotel. If you get a good room rate it's worth considering this Hotel but don't expect slick service with all mod cons. The comments below may Put you off but im only stating how it compares with other Hotels in its class. The room we were given was large, sea view and balcony, albeit a small one. The decor is not great unless you dislike the modern clean lines usually found in hotels of this standard. The bathroom layout was poor. No shower cubicle, just a bath with a small shower screen and a hand held, clamp to the wall type of attachment. Next to that was some dodgy looking SOS cord which was a tad dirty. The hair dryer was bizzarly situated by the toilet, in the bathroom, it was on a go slow and made it was impossible for us to get ready for the evening in unison. The Maid took off the heavy eiderdown after the first night and stacked it up in the corner. The beds don't need the eiderdown and the white linen looked a lot better. I didn't really want the whole thing along with bed cusions stacked in the corner of the room. Breakfast outside is lovely. The staff tried really hard but the restaurant needs a meet and greet, someone tanyhow you to a table, no one took our room number (or by the pool) so really anyone can pop in for breakfast or a swim! You just had to sit down and hope you got you got noticed. The first morning was bad, broken crockery on the floor, hardly any staff. After that things got better. Pool is nice, no drinks service tho and the Hotel are missing an opportunity there. One afternoon there were no beds around the pool, 4 pm being the peak when tiresome soles return from sightseeing. We wernt interupted from any partying, wedding receptions ect finished at 12 and once the balcony doors were closed, all was quiet. Front desk very helpful. I'd stay here again along as I'm not paying the full room rate, oh and bring your own hair dryer.

Der Guest,

Thank you for choosing Grand Villa Argentina and writing review about our hotel!
Your comments are valuable to us and we will take them into consideration.
Just I am not sure when it could happen that there were no beds and service at the beach. Was that maybe day after storms, even then beach boys were putting out sunbeds from around noon as waves were over the beach during the morning.

Best Regards,

This is our third night of 5 in the hotel and two nights have been loud partying. . . . . . it is 23h37 Sunday night and loud loud music and voices via loudspeaker is blaring outside. We have paid $500. for a room here. At this very moment I demand my money back. This is just ridiculous. Taking ones money and then do what they want? Is this just because the culture is different? This is not acceptable. Beware, if you do come and stay at this very overrated expensivce hotel that you may land up in the same situation.

Room Tip: any room here will be a gamble?

We recently had a six night stay during the first week of September and would have loved to have stayed longer. We could not fault the hotel on anything, everything was excellent. This hotel has amazing views of the old city and the breakfast/terrace is a beautiful place to start and finish your day. It is less than 10 minutes walk to the old town. The breakfast was by far the best we have ever had in Europe and the happy hour at Victorias bar is a great spot for a pre dinner drink with live music and that amazing view of the old city at sunset. For a large hotel it has such a calm ambience. The staff were very good and the day we picked up our rental car they were so obliging. We highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Even though the view can slightly obstructed by trees we definitely feel it is worth the additional...

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.

Room Tip: Don't pay extra for the sea view because really, how much time do you spend in the room anyways...

Great location, and what a stunning view! Just wish we could have stayed longer. Only a few minutes walk to the walled city, but all the amenities of a resort farther out. We wouldn't have booked something so expensive, but being procrastinators, the cheaper options were filled up already. But it was a lovely treat. The style is a little old school, I tend to prefer a little more modern or interesting design, but that is hardly a fault for all.

Room Tip: A view of the water is very nice

We stayed at the Grand Villa Argentina for 1 week in July. It is built on the side of a hill, so that you enter the reception on street level, then go down stairs/lifts to your room, restaurant and beach. The room was very clean and well laid out, however I was slightly disappointed in the view - we had paid additional money to our travel agent for - it was obscured by a large tree. This is because there is a lovely tree lined avenue below the rooms which face onto the sea. For anyone who has long hair - the hairdryer in the bathroom can take a long time to dry your hair so I suggest taking your own. We did however have a fantastic stay. Contrary to what some reviewers have put, we found the staff to be friendly and helpful. The selection of breakfast was good and a few guests even had a glass of bubbly in the morning. The views from the terrace/breakfasting area are fantastic. There are breathtaking views over the sea and to Dubrovnik itself. The 'beach' area is more of a sun terrace with pool, where you can enter the sea for a swim & order drinks from staff. The hotel is only a 10 minute walk away from the city, so is very convenient. If I am fortunate enough to visit Dubrovnik again, I would definitely stay here.

This hotel is a true paradise! Every ounce of the grounds are immaculate and stunning, and the pool area is beyond words. The pictures on the hotel website look too good to be true but I can assure they are a true showcase of the amazing view and pool area at this hotel. This really is the jewel hotel of the area - we like to get the opinion of the locals on their views of the hotels and they all said that the Grand Villa Argentina is the most beautiful and best represents a luxurious Croatian experience! Stay here, you will not regret it.

The location is incredible - a true under 10 minute walk to the old city which is so essential. Although, it's hard to pull yourself away from the amazing pool to go into town! All the food at the hotel was amazing, and we also found breakfast and lunch prices to be very reasonable. Dinner at the restaurant was a little out of price range (23 year old couple) but it looked amazing! The hotel did feature a daily Happy Hour where drinks were 40% off and they played live music on one of its stunning patios which was my favourite part of our stay.

The staff was also very kind - I cannot wait to come back!

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
