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.

A very relaxing stay
We have just returned from our lovely holiday staying at The Valamar Argosy Hotel in Babin Kuk. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this hotel. When we arrived we were greeted by a lovely long dark hair receptionist, she was so polite and helpful. We arrived a bit early, so had to wait just for an hour, so we had a good look around the hotel and its grounds. Every thing was so lovely, the views outside were amazing. We were given the keys to our rooms and they were just fantastic. Lovely bed so comfy and the toilet/bathroom was nice and modern. We were very pleased with our choice of hotel. The hotel next door which was another Valamar hotel,they had there own private beach. We just loved it, went several times, it was lovely, very clean, with excellent amenities. The bus service was amazing, every 6 minutes approximately, we never waited long for a bus.Very good service. Breakfast was a little hectic, but there were a lot of people to .cater for. There was a very good choice on the breakfast menu, The .waiters/waitresses were so hard working during breakfast. We did find perhaps a little more entertainment might be nice, such as a pianist playing the piano as you .walk back into the hotel in the evening.The hotel is so relaxing and we managed to have a good nights sleep every night, which is very unusual. We did find when enquiring about trips, that the young lady who was dealing with the trips, was not very helpful. We wanted to book several trips, but wanted to find out more about them obviously, before booking them. Her attitude wasn't nice, so we decided to book else where, which was sad. That was the only negative thing about our stay. Every thing else was just wonderful. We will return again. Thank you for our stay.More
Comfortable modern resort
Stayed 4 nights visit. Hotel is large and spread out. Sea view room. Modern bathroom with shower. No bath. Grohe. Balcony overlooking sea. Large pool area is nice. But beaches are located down a path and are extra cost. Unexpected. Gym is smaller but adequate. Also has outdoor area with trx. Breakfast is vast array of options. Several cooking stations making omelets on demand and for you. But espresso is extra. The hotel is about 12 minutes ride from pile gate. Not walkable. Use a bus no. 6. Can catch it outside the hotel. And runs frequently. Or take Uber. The hotel is part of a vast collection of valamar hotels on lapad. Next door is the valamar president 5 star also greatly. We ate dinner buffet there. Lapad can be reached on foot via a very pleasant walk along the seafront. Many restaurants along the way. More cave bar is located on this walk. We ate dinner at the more hotel. Excellent. More
Stayed 3 nights in June, 2019 our room was spacious with king size bed, comfortable mattress and pillows. The bathroom was large with a spacious shower, soap, shower gel etc supplied. There are 3 swimming pools on site, 2 x adult and 1 x kids pool, all well maintained with plenty of sun lounges available. The standout at this hotel was the magnificent breakfast which had the greatest array of food I have seen in a hotel. Cereals, many types of bread, hot and cold selections catering for all tastes and dietary requirements.More

Could of been excellent
Had a fantastic weekend at this hotel and really did enjoy our stay with a group of friends The hotel is clean, modern and very comfortable with all the facilities you really require. The rooms are of a good size and condition. The mattresses are super comfy and really didn’t want to get out of bed! The pool and spa facilities are very good. As for the breakfast it was great with good choice to suit everyone. Quality was decent with freshly cooked eggs, bacon etc in front of you. We did have lunch at the poolside on one occasion and did enjoy the quality of the food yet again with good value for money. My only dislike was the poolside staff. They are miserable and really need to move on. We wanted to split our bill and were informed it can only be one method of payment for all... cash or card? We did find this a bit odd but with no fuss was happy to accept. We chose to pay by card and was then informed it has to be one type of card merchant only for everyone...Visa or MasterCard? I’ve travelled many countries and have never been requested or told this before. We had to in the end just pay with one card to save a lot of effort. I later asked reception if this was accurate and they said it wasn’t! The same member of staff was very pushy in which table to select and refused to put sun blinds up in a way she just couldn’t be bothered. On another occasion I wanted to purchase an ice cream and some water at 17:59. I was turned away and told that close at 18:00. Ok fair enough... do not go out of your way for the one minute! However, The hotel is great and would stay here again although you need a taxi ride into the old town. More
This hotel is lovely. It’s about a 15 minute drive from the old town but there is a regular public bus which is easy to use so the distance from old town didn’t matter. It was great being able to enjoy the seclusion and amenities of the hotel while also still being able to get to town easily. Hotel extras such as the spa and bar were reasonably priced unlike most other hotels. This meant we had true freedom in deciding whether to eat and drink at the hotel or elsewhere. We will definitely be staying here again.More
