Spent a week at the 3 star Argosy and although this wasnt the hotel originally booked we had a very pleasant stay. We had booked the Tirena Hotel but on arrival they didnt have our booking and we were moved to the Argosy which was a bit of an incovenient start to the holiday. There was only 1 room left on the 1st floor but before we had even seen it the hotel reception staff had said if we werent happy they would move us the following day as we had originally booked a balacony and this was a ground floor room. Room was clean but a bit dark and dated. The following day we moved to a room on the 2nd floor with balcony which had a lovely view over the garden and you could see the sea. Room clean, birght and airy. Staff very pleasant at the hotel , good choice at breakfast and cant fault the drinks they poured at the bar (bad head most mornings ensued) An older client group stays at the hotel so enternainment cheesey but we went out at night and returned for nightcaps. Only drawback is the pool area not very big but we went up to the tirena as they are all on the same 'complex'. Dubrovnik is a beautiful place and from this base you have the choice of bars and restaurants in Lapad with Old Dubrovnik only being a 20 min bus journey and buses run every 10 minutes till 1am. Took a boat trip to Elaphite islands although not quite as described and they limited the alcohol really as they ran out of the unlimited croatian brandy after the 2nd stop and to get to the first island we werent on the boat but taken by a different boat. Defintely recommend Buono in Lapad for food , Taj Mahal in Old Dubrovnik is a must as well for bosnian food. (Dont let the name put you off). Will defo return to Croatia and wld stay at Argosy again.
