Leafy gardens and the picturesque Dalmatian coastline cushion the Valmar Argosy, which had a makeover for May 2018.
This place perches between two petite pebble beaches, which are only a couple of minutes’ walk away. Hop on a bus from outside the lobby, and you can reach the historic city of Dubrovnik in only 20 minutes.
The hotel had a luxury upgrade for 2018. Highlights include a spruced up pool area, and revamped rooms done out in beachy colours like turquoise and sand.

Stunning, but not perfect
We have just spent a week at the Argosy and I have to say it's one of the most beautiful hotels I have ever stayed in. Location is absolutely stunning. The outdoor pools are superb (one heated pool and the other colder). Hotel is spotless as well which was a bonus. The food is some of the best food I have eaten in a hotel, the buffet dinner was different every single night,bdo we never felt like we were eating the same thing! I have to thank Jelka and Antonia in the restaurant. They were both amazing and always made our 9month old baby smile. The rest of the staff were also amazing, but these 2 really stood out, so I hope management can pass our thanks to them. My biggest peave - on the 14th may, we went down for dinner at 7 to a queue of people (we never had to queue before so thought this was strange) when entering the restaurant to find a table, it was near impossible. The place was absolutely heaving with people, most of which were extremely rude! They all had a lanyard on so I asked someone why they were wearing them, and they told me they were on a tour and the food was included. I felt the hotel taking this amount of people on, plus guests was a bit ridiculous. It mean that a lot of the guests were having to wait for some of these people to leave. I feel like guests should always take priority over visitors!!! The only other issue we had was with the room cleaning. The room was cleaned daily, but towels weren't replaced and neither were the toiletries. We had to ask a few times for clean towels and toilet roll. Other than the couple of things I've mentioned, it's a beautiful place with incredible food!! Would highly recommend staying here.More
Good stay, nice property
We stayed here for 3 nights as part of a tour group. It wasn’t the original hotel, but it worked out ok. He grounds were nice. The lobby and bar and outside areas were very comfortable for hanging out. However, some hotel room doors on floors 3 and 4 have doors that open into the common area, which could be lively in the evening with people at the bar and a little band playing music, so I can see that being an issue. But, we stayed in the main floor (2nd) down the hall from the main lobby, so noise wasn’t an issue for us. The room looked newly renovated and and was clean and spacious. However, we were often missing towels, no hand towels (they were waiting for laundry to finish) and then only 1 big towel the following night- but it was fixed quickly once we called and they brought us more towels right away. The other issue, was that the rooms were hot and there was no way to turn on the AC since it was centrally controlled, but also, Bc in mid-May they still had central heating on and all they could do was turn it off via the front desk. And, every day we had to ask them to shut it off. And, to cool down the room, we had to open the outside door to get a breeze in the room (which worked, but there was no screen). And at night we would close it when we went to sleep and would wake up hot. That was our biggest issue with the hotel. Also, the hotel isn’t near old town, but there is a bus with a bus stop at the end of the hotel driveway that is cheap (about 2 euro) and efficient to take you to the old town. We also ate dinner there twice as part of our tour groups and the food was good and the selection was wide and varied. Breakfast was also very good! The breads a pastries were freshly baked and delicious, however, the coffee was awful- takes like instant, but worse, so we had juice instead. Overall, our stay was decent and the hotel was nice and would recommend this place if you’re looking for more a resort experience.More
For the Management please read the reviews concerning your staff. The odd one or two like ie Bruno in the Restaurant Daniel in Reception and the housekeeper lady, these are a credit to your Hotel. The rest of the team need to learn some basic manners and be taught how to smile, not that this should be needed to be taught as we the customers are actually paying their wages, the hotel is so spotless and the room very comfortable with an amazing mattress. The opportunity that you have is a amazing its just ome of your team that let you down every day. The younger women waitress are by far the worst. Hope you do address this.More
Wonderfully relaxing place
My partner and I stayed here for a week in April and loved it! The hotel lobby is wide and bright with plenty of seats and sofas, a shop, hairdressers and bar - we spent many evenings down here after tea. We found a large library downstairs too (the travel books from your flight/booking operators are here!) Our room was spacious with a lovely bathroom and stocked mini bar which was restocked each day. My partner and I made use of the indoor pool, sauna and spa which was lovely and free to hotel guests (you paid for spa treatments). The outdoor pool area was beautiful with stunning views. A short walk away are two beaches - they were just getting ready to open when we were there so never got to see them open. It is VERY easy to get to the old town from the hotel. You can buy bus tickets from the hotel shop (12 kuna each) and walk a minute down the road to get the bus - we are the first pick up and last drop off. The food was just amazing for a foodie such as myself. There was a wide variety available for breakfast and the evening meal and the staff were very courteous. The lobby bar also served food which we though was ideal for a mid day snack.More
A True 4 Star Experience!
We recently spent 3 weeks at the Valamar Argosy, and I would highly recommend it to fellow travellers. Superbly located with breathtaking views of the Dalmatian coast and islands, the hotel offers marvellous daily breakfasts, relaxing lounge areas, twin infinity pools, spa facilities, and friendly, attentive staff. The old town is only a 25 minute bus ride away on public transport, the stop being steps away from the hotel. My complaints are few: air conditioning not turned on until May, the odd grumpy employee; however, these are small compared to the many positives.More
