34 years ago we honeymooned at the old Plakir now re-named the Lacroma as the Plakir was badly damaged in the war . We returned to the Valamar complex which consists of 5 hotels belonging to this group . The Tirena is linked to the Argosy via a shopping mall 30% of which are empty ,the rest are taken up by bars ,gift shops , a scooter shop ,women's clothing shop and weirdly a bridal shop . The whole set-up is a bit of a concrete jungle , but a nice one .We found the Tirena very clean ,well run and good standard food above most 3 star hotels .We found the Babbin Kuk complex a little isolated on a night time ,during the day there are plenty of buses , and lots of great walks around the headland ,so take a good pair of trainers . Dubrovnik old Town is some what spoilt by the huge number of visitors ( the Cruise ship trade has a lot to answer for and is much like Venice ).The Tirena was mostly full of older folk with one or two families ,hence the lack of atmosphere on a night .Last tip there is a ladies hairdresser at the near by Neptun Hotel if you require one ( always keeps the wife happy)
