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.

Dubronvik Trip in October 2018
Valamar Argosy Hotel - good food, friendly service, pool area with fantastic view. The hotel gave me a complimentary bubbly for my birthday. There were plenty of sun loungers and we had no need to fight for a place near the pool. More
Stunning views and excellent location
We stayed for one week on a half board basis and would definitely recommend the Valamar Argosy. Reception area is modern and bright, and open plan with a lobby bar and lots of lots of seating areas with unusual armchairs/lounge beds, footstools etc. Check in was quick and easy and we were allocated a room on the fourth floor, easy to get to using the lift. Our room (440) was really quiet and had a balcony facing onto trees, so no view as as such but it did catch the sun, having said that the views from the pool area is absolutely stunning so we spent most of our time there. Watch the sunset from the pool area and you will not be disappointed, breath-taking!! Sit on a sun lounger of which there are plenty or choose a four poster cushioned bed with drapes if you prefer? You can also watch the boats passing, including cruise liners which is impressive as the sail slowly past. We ate in the restaurant and the pool snack bar - food was very good - no complaints. Drinks are about the same as home so no Happy Hours or Buy One Get One Free etc. and found that the prices overall in Dubrovnik were similar wherever we went. The bus journey into Dubrovnik is so easy, buy tickets at the hotel shop or on the bus itself, the hotel is the last/first stop so no need to worry about where to get off. Dubrovnik Old Town is beautiful, although can be busy the days that cruise ships are in, but an absolute must to visit, easy to do on your own or as part of the many tours you can take. Found a great little bar - Bar Buza, literally hanging on the side of the cliffs with views out across the water, we watched sea kayakers and Galleons go by. Also worth doing from the hotel are the coastal walks - turn right to go towards Coral Beach and Copacobana Beach and left will take you along the Hotel More where you can visit The Cave Bar, again an absolute must visit, great to sit outside and watch the sunset but absolutely go inside as see the stalagmites and feel the cave vibe. Location, views and comfort of hotel were first class. Staff are polite and helpful they are more reserved than some other places I have visited but I really liked the way they were there if needed but not annoying or pushy which is exactly what we wanted on what was a very relaxing holiday. Will definitely stay at the Valamar Argosy again, did visit the sister hotel The President, absolutely stunning and worth visiting but not sure I'd feel the need to stay there as preferred the more relaxed vine at The Argosy.More
Wonderful holiday at the Argosy hotel! Spotless clean, lovely food with so much choice. Really enjoyed our holiday, would certainly recommend. Bus stop just 100 yds away with a bus every 15 mins into Dubrovnik. More

Plenty of style but a few issues to consider
The Argosy Hotel is certainly very impressive when you first arrive. A spacious and stylish reception with large clean rooms. The location is wonderful with excellent views across the water from the infinity pool area. This is the perfect spot to watch the colourful sunsets by the pool bar. Dubrovnik old town is easy to reach by the No 6 bus costing just 12 kuna one way. Tickets can be bought from the shop in the reception. On the way back if you get off at the post office there is a nice coastal walk with bars and restaurants that brings you back to the hotel. Although a lovely hotel there were a few things which we would like to mention. Our room was overlooking the main reception lobby. The open area ment that it was always noisy with chatter from the bar and evening live singers. Worth asking for a room that is not in this reception area. Secondly we were on a half board basis. The variety and choice of food available was enormous and perhaps more care could have been taken on the preparation. Much of the food was luke warm and overcooked. The dining area was huge and with so many people eating and circulating around the buffet it was rather chaotic. We both found that it was not a pleasant dining experience and too loud to have a sensible conversation over dinner. We just wanted to eat and leave as soon as possible. All in all a very nice hotel but in some aspects rather too much style and not enough substance.More
Amazing views and great hotel
We stayed here for 4 nights and it was great. The hotel is quite nice and staff were helpful. The room was nice but the aircon seemed to struggle just a bit...not a deal breaker. There is a bus you can take to the old city. Get the tickets on the lobby shop. You will get a seat on the way down but coming back from the old town...the bus will be packed. The pool is good...not quite as big as in the pics but still ok. We found the water a bit cold for us. There is a Coba cabana beach..or pebbles...rock beach that you can walk down. But you have to take cash or card to pay. Bring your reef shoes as well. We went to the valamad President next door which is nice. The only thing we did not like was the restaurant at the hotel only does buffet dinner. The bar services food but the choices are limited. Overall a great stay.More
