“A stunning and beautiful location, well organised and friendly”
Reviewed June 15, 2012

This hotel has beautiful views and is well located only 20 mins by bus to the old town of Dubrovnik. The highlight of our stay was each evening dining outside or on the covered terrace (sunsets, Islands and passing cruise ships). The staff are friendly and helpful and high standards were maintained throughout our stay. This hotel offers a relaxing atmosphere with quiet, clean areas to sunbathe in a garden setting. You can choose from a low key evening in the hotel or travel to the old town quickly and cheaply for a lively evening (the buses run till 1am in the morning) You also have the option of walking to the other Valamar Hotels (Lacroma Dubrovnik, Dubrovnik President and Club Dubrovnik which are all minutes away with a variety of facilities and fantastic views. We really loved the coastal walks one way takes 20 mins to Gruz Harbour and the other is 25 mins to Lapad. There is seating and shaded areas along the walks. We would like to thank all the staff we had a lovely stay and hope to return soon. In Dubrovnik the city walls and Cable car experience is amazing but do it around 4pm when its quieter and cooler.

Room Tip: We were on the third floor and the room was spacious with a lovely vaulted ceiling.We had a sea view...

6 of us have just returned from a lovely stay.
The staff at the hotel are really welcoming and helpful. Our room was great - with a view over the sea to the mountains. I had some fun trying to open the patio doo but finally cracked it with trial and error.
The food was really good - such a big range of options that seemed to change throughout our stay, so we were not bored. But the best part for us was the outside area at the restaurant - we enjoyed our breakfasts with the sun behind us but in the evening we could watch the sunset - stunning.
There was no beach associated with this hotel - but there are a number of hotels in the same group nearby. We went to the President and down to their beach - take one of the towels from the Argosy ( they are the same for the President) so if you put the towel on the sunbed it is free. Beware all the beaches are pebbles - take some shoes that allow you to walk into the warm sea.
As others have said the number 6 bus is at the front of the hotel - this is the first stop so you might be lucky enough to get a seat. But coming back from Dubrovnik is often a squeeze. The return ticket is cheaper from the shop in the hotel than buying on the bus.

There are some lovely walks around the edge of the peninsular, with bars and restaurants - be sure to try them out.
We found that some of the supermarkets were amazingly cheap - a 2 litre bottle of good beer for the equivalent of £1.30 ! And the bottle fits in the mini bar fridge in the room to keep cool.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the garden or the sea. Avoid rooms that face the central area where entertainm...

My husband and I have recently returned from the Argosy Hotel after a stay of 4 nights with a tour group. Beautiful location with stunning views which could be improved if the shrubbery was cut back from around the rooms patio doors. We love to sit out whilst on holiday but we did find ourselves shrouded in darkness. Also, I was extremely disappointed to not find even 1 tomato on offer at each evening buffet. Yes there was all manner of different salad dishes but not 1 tomato! Very quirky hotel with very friendly staff in a lovely location. I've attached a photo of our favourite view from the hotel terrace (which I've had made into a mouse mat!).

My wife and I stayed (with a group of 30) from 27 May to 3 June 2012.
All staff from reception, dining room, snack areas to room staff were more than helpful. On the one occasion that I had a problem (with managing the balcony door) two "workmen" arrived within five minutes and resolved the problem within minutes; efficient and understanding!
Buffet style dining proved to be very flexible for busy/coach touring guests; food was very good and the variety was excellent; chefs grilled meats/fish/sausages to "order" - in the dining room. Eggs/bacon were cooked freshly for diners.
"Sweets" were up to standard, variety good and the provision of locally grown fresh fruits (especially strawberries) - excellent.
Pool provision was fairly good but seemed to meet the needs of the hotel's clientele.
Our room had a sea view (at no extra cost) - with stunning views of the Adriatic coast and passing boats and cruise ships.
A local beach/sea-activities area was accessible within a leisurely 15 minute walk - but the path was stony and uneven.
It was one of the quietest hotels I have ever stayed in (but I had been given a ground floor room away from lifts - at my prior request).
Suitable "cultural, low key" entertainment was provided in the lounge area between 9pm and 10. 30pm most evenings - with a Croatian "stringed" trio entertaining diners with folk music/songs on one evening during our visit.
Our room was spacious but the balcony was very small (larger - costs extra).

Overall - a good three star hotel mostly suited to "the retired" or couples using it as a base for sight-seeing.

Room Tip: West facing - away from lifts.

We stayed at the Argosy for one night on the 7th June, 2012. Very pleasant staff etc. Choice for breakfast was excellent, and also the buffet at night was amazing. Lovely hotel, but definitely need a refurb in the rooms. But for one night it was ok. Small pool area, which was a bit disappointing for the size of the hotel. Bus to the Town was located close by, but it is very busy, and coming back it was packed, as they dont bother how many they pack onto the bus !!!!! Think there were more people standing than sitting.

Spent 5 nights here and find it very difficult to find any faults. The room (sea view) was light and airy, huge patio windows and door. The bed was very comfortable (and also huge). Bathroom nice and big, overbath shower good but water temp did fluctuate alarmingly.
The food was excellent and varied in the evenings and good value for money. The staff were very polite and helpful. Evening entertainment is aimed at the older client, so if you want livelier evenings then it wouldn't suit. The pool and patio area with bar very very good, great walks from the hotel to very clean pebble beaches and although situated at the end of the Babin Kuk peninsular, very easy trip to the Old City via no. 6 bus.
If not eating at the hotel, there are some good restaurants within walking distance.
All things considered I would recommend this hotel and wouldn't hesitate to return should we revisit in the future.

We would strongly suggest if you are offered a room on the 2nd floor you change immediately , the over the bath shower was dropping off the wall along with all the fittings,it leaked flooding the bathroom, the room looked like something out of the early 50's Butlins Holiday Camps, a few of our party asked to be relocated, we found the third floor had been updated and was more acceptable. The food was ok if you eat meat but not a lot for a veg eater.

Room Tip: third and fourth floor seem to be a better quality
