Grand Villa Argentina
With its unrivalled views over Dubrovnik and its seafront pool, this hotel is one of Croatia’s most elite retreats.
It’s hard to beat the views from the pool at this stately hotel. Set at the bottom of tiered subtropical gardens, its wide sun terrace looks straight across the sea to Dubrovnik’s Old Town – as does its stylish restaurant.
Dubrovnik’s Medieval gateways are only a 10-minute walk away, but there’s plenty to keep you at the hotel, including a Meditierranean à la carte, a fine dining place, a bar and a luxury spa.

Great 2019 trip
A second time to Dubrovnik but never stayed at this hotel and we were very happy we did. The hotel is located on the main road and a little walk from the old city but is up hill returning to the hotel. The hotel has a balcony with a great view to have breakfast, dinner or an evening drink. On the bottom floor walking through the stone tunnel hotel staff assist with towels, seating and umbrellas next to the salt water pool and the cool clear Adriatic Sea. The entire staff did a great job and if we return this would be a must.More
Perfect Location and Beautiful View
We recently stayed here for 4 nights in room 701 which is on the top floor, in the corner furthest away from the Old Town (but still with views of the city walls), of the newer part of the hotel known as the ‘main building’. It’s many years since we’ve stayed in hotels abroad as we usually stay in villas and so are a bit out of touch with hotel standards. Having read a number of reviews suggesting that this is not a 5 star hotel we are still none the wiser ... I do think we were in the best room of the hotel though so our experience may not be typical (we’d advised in advance of our anniversary and a birthday during our stay which possibly secured this room). We arrived around midday and there was a large queue of people checking both in and out. Reception staff were not rude but neither were they friendly or welcoming. Our luggage was stored in reception as our room was not going to be ready until 2pm. This was frustrating as like most people after an early morning flight we just wanted to get to our room, unpack and shower. To be fair though this wasn’t the hotel’s fault as their website clearly states check-in at 2pm ... we’d booked through a tour operator and although we knew our expected time of arrival, we hadn’t realised that there’d be a delay actually getting into our room. Our room however was ready at 2pm and was very clean and comfortable with a lovely large balcony. I fed back to the hotel that the balcony could accomodate a couple of sunloungers as well as the small table and chairs. The views were simply gorgeous looking out to the Adriatic and Lokrum Island and the Old City to the right. It was incredibly relaxing and peaceful to sit outside any time of the day or evening (except when the very loud american lady next door to us was in residence ...). There is a little noise from the restaurant in the evening but it isn’t late and you are usually treated to a wonderful musician ... the pianist was excellent. The bed was very comfortable and there was plenty of wardrobe and storage space. Robes and slippers are provided and there was a safe in the wardrobe. The hotel had left us a bottle of bubbles on ice and a nice letter from the hotel manager for our anniversary which was lovely of them. The hairdryer, to my suprise, was an old fashioned ‘in-the-wall’ type in the bathroom and I did leave feedback suggesting they invest in modern plug-in types. There is also a telephone next to the toilet which literally had us in stitches laughing ... perhaps for the busy exec. from the 1980s?! Time is money after all! A number of miniature L’Occitane toiletries are provided including shower gel, shampoo, conditioner, body lotion, cotton pads & buds, shower caps and a nail file. The shower is connected to the bath but is powerful and there was always a supply of hot water. The AC wasn’t very powerful but we forgot to feeback on this. It wasn’t a problem for me (Mediterranean blood!) but my husband could have benefited from the room being a bit cooler. I’m sure we’d have been provided with a fan if we’d have requested one. The hotel provides a laundry and pressing service which is possibly why an iron and board were not in the room. I requested these however and they were sent to our room instantly and without query. The cleaning service was exceptional and with what felt like a constant supply of clean towels, bed linen and toiletries. Every night when we returned from dinner there were 2 little good quality praline chocolates left for us. Breakfast was wonderful and I’m afraid to say that we overate every single morning but it kept us going until our evening meal! A huge choice of buffet style hot food, fruit, cheeses, cold meats, cakes, pastries, cereals, nuts, seeds, yogurts ... even broccoli and green beans! There were lots of juices and of course unlimited tea and coffee served at your table. The quality of breakfast, as well as the choice, was really impressive and the waiting staff worked exceptionally hard whilst remaining very polite and professional despite some patrons, in our opinion, behaving rudely and arrogantly towards the staff. This was completely unnecessary as the staff were very helpful efficient. Pool towels are provided and the pool and sunbathing deck is glorious, if a little cozy! Food and drinks can be ordered and attending staff are very pleasant. On my husband’s birthday, the hotel manager sent another lovely letter and a birthday cake to our room! Thank you thank you! All communal areas were spotless and both circulating and door staff always acknowledged us and were very friendly, helpful and polite. The location of the hotel was perfect for us providing for a lovely 10-15 minute walk to the Old Town which we really enjoyed in the evening. It wouldn’t necessarily suit anyone with mobility issues though or if general lack of fitness is an issue. Having said that, there are plenty of taxis. The hotel is also only a 15 minute walk away from the lower station for the cable car to Mount Srd. Overall, we truly had a wonderful stay in Dubrovnik and would be very happy to stay at Grand Villa Argentina again but ... only if we can have room 701 and if Matea the Hotel Manager will have us back!

Nice stay but not five star
Overall this is a nice hotel and we enjoyed our stay here. The outside beach café and cocktails area overlooking the harbour has views to die for and the happy hour cocktails are reasonably priced. The reception area also has lovely views to the Adriatic. This is supposed to be a 5 star hotel but it is a country-mile away from being this. The décor on the Villa Garcia side is tired and in need of refurbishment. In my daughter’s room the carpet had a huge bleach stain near the entrance to the room. Our bathroom looked like something out of the 1980s, which is when it was probably last decorated as well. Our rooms at Garcia were up at least 2 flights of stairs (no lifts); concierge weren’t overly helpful offering to deliver our bags so we took them up the stairs ourselves. So, this hotel would not be suitable for elderly folk. Room quite small, no views. No tea or coffee making facilities, and no bottled water is provided. Drinks generally expensive and was quite shocked to be charged £14 for a large glass of house wine at lunchtime. On a positive - a very nice touch was when the hotel despatched to our room some roses, a card and a cake for my wife’s birthday. The hotel is very convenient for getting into the old town which is only a 10-minute walk away. Outside and inside pools are available along with an excellent sun-bathing area with access to the sea and excellent views over the harbour. English newspapers available in reception. Excellent breakfasts with very good choices to suit all tastes.More
Nice views ; excellent pool that allows fir a jump into the Adriatic Sea ! Rooms need updating, but our bed was comfortable and place is clean . We asked for a fan and therefore the low strength of the a/ c was not a problem. Dinner at Victoria was wonderful with our group and breakfast was sufficient with a large array of choices. Hotel is located about a mile away from the old town . More
Quality hotel superb location
Just spent a week with my wife and two daughters. Great rooms, fantastic breakfast and a very attentive staff. Superb pool staff who always were able to find beds and umbrellas. Drinks service second to none.More
