Reviewed August 13, 2013

Have not long been back after spending 10 nights at the Argosy hotel. The hotel has very friendly staff, the hotel is faultless! It is clean, close to the beach and not far from the old city with a bus that stops outside the hotel. We had an amazing holiday in CRoatia and we fell in love with it. We are thinking of returning next year. The only small negative was the wild cats that wandered into the restaurant, myself and my husband had a few bites and are sure they were flea bites. Overall though, a fab hotel with lovely food and staff in an excellent position within a beautiful country.

My family and I stayed at the Argosy Hotel, Dubrovnik in July 2013 for two nights as part of a broader tour bus group. While the hotel itself is clean but average, it does provide a resort feel with a very hospitable staff, above average food choices and breath taking sunset dining views.

Overall, I was very pleased with the hotel and its amenities, including onsite entertainment for both children and adults alike, food buffet with varied choices, the opportunity to visit adjoining sister properties, beach access and reasonably sized pool.

One challenge for me though was the stray cats that were present throughout the resort. Was this really wasn't an issue for me in most areas, it did concern me for health reasons in the dining area. Unfortunately, much of the dining seating is outside ... an area that might be a little hard to manage the "wildlife".

Staff was just awesome, we lost a bag on a bus from airport, they called and tracked it and had it delivered. Location is great, beaches near by and multiple, very easy to get to old town , local bus stops a block from hotel and takes u to old town about 15-20 min ride cost under 3 dollars.
Breakfast was great, ever our picky two year old approved.

We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The location is great, food was good and rooms were lovely. Although I would recommend choosing one with a sea view as the views are really great. The pool area is very pleasant and the pool bar serves snacks throughout the day.
It's only a short bus ride into the old town of Dubrovnik which is wonderful. Very different in a good way, walk the wall and then dine in one of the many bars nod restaurants which are very good and very reasonably priced.
I would definitely stay in this hotel again.

I have just come back from a 1 week stay at this hotel and I could not fault it.
First of all I like to say that I did read some bad/not so good reviews before going to this hotel but I have no idea what these people were talking about or what they expected, this is a very good three star hotel.
The hotel is set in a nice location by the sea (A pebble beach) with a few local shops and restaurants nearby. The bus stop is located outside the hotel and the number 6 bus will take you into Dubrovnik old town in about 10-15 mins, buses also run every 10 mins so hardly any waiting, costs 15kuna for one way. We did walk this once took about 45 - 1 hour.
The nearby beach offers water activities too.

The hotel is very clean, the staff are very friendly and efficient. The restaurant staff were very efficient at cleaning and preparing your tables etc.
The food at the restaurant very good and I they do try to have different options of evening food available each day. Food is fresh and replaced often.
Everything you could possible want for breakfast too. The chef that does the eggs is very smiley and clearly loves his job.
Not sure what all the bad reviews were about where people were saying the restaurant was horrendous. Its a half board hotel that caters very well for a lot of people and has a bonus of lovely views.

Staff were very helpful. We had a problem with our private transfer back to the airport, as in we were still waiting 20 mins after we were suppose to be picked up and when I rang the number I was given by transfer people the very helpful women at the other end said that she doesn't do it no more. I rang another number and the guy didn't speak very good English and was telling me to ring someone else etc. So at this point I was getting panicky I went back inside the hotel and a very nice young women on reception (Didn't get her name I'm afraid) started phoning around for me and found out that the transfer people had sold the business to another company but this company were waiting at the wrong hotel for me (despite dropping me at the correct one) She was very calm and very helpful.

I would defiantly go back to Croatia it is a beautiful country. Would recommend a trip to the island of Mljet it does take a while to get there but well worth the visit.
The old town and the city walls are also well worth the visit and have lovely views.

We had a lovely holiday for eleven nights starting 16/06/213 at the Argosy Hotel. We had a sea view room overlooking the adriatic , and loved watching the cruise ships coming in and out. The rooms were comfortable and very clean and good value.

We went half board and found the food good. Busy,and at times noisey, but overall we found the choice very good.

We found the staff very personable and polite. The ladies at the reception desk were particulary kind and helpful to me and my husband wnen we had a problem, and did their very best to help.

The bus into Dubrovnick was regular and took about ten minuets to get there, although at one point I did think how many people could you get on a bus!! The Dubrovnik card was well worth buying, from hotel, or places in Dubrovnik. Nice walk to Lapad whch we only found on last day round the hotels on the way down to Lapad.

Lots of trips to do to islands, met some interesting people on a few trips which broadens your outlook.

Weather was good sunny every day.. Loved it. Would I go back, YES. Lets hope going into the Euro doesnt spoil things.

Room Tip: Sea View room quiet and not in full sun all day
