“Excellent hotel with great facilities”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2013 via mobile

Spent two nights here and really enjoyed it. While I agree with the previous reviewer that the rooms were somewhat dated, the facilities including the pool lounging area were great - spent many happy hours chilling out on a sun lounger looking out over the sea and had some refreshing dips.

We had breakfast included which were very nice on the terrace.

We found the staff very helpful and attentive - no issues there

All and all a great hotel

The property is old and mantince just ok, to go to the hotel's main building (Lobby, restaurant, pool, frontdesk, etc) you have to cross the street.

The web site said tha the rooms have views to the Adriatic, but ours faced to a wall as many others, so they are not clear in the information.

I spent three nights at the Grand Villa Argentina and would be more inclined to class this as a lower 4 star hotel - not a 5 star. It has a wonderful location, 12 minutes walk from the old town, on a cliff overlooking the ocean.

I was in Villa Glavic across the road which was convenient - but the rooms themselves are quite dated, especially the bathroom. The room itself had most of the conveniences required (safe, mini-bar) except there was no tea/coffee making facilities so we had to go across the road to the hotel for this (and order it from the expensive bar/restaurant).

The location, as mentioned, is the best thing about the hotel - it has stunning views across the ocean and of the old town. Victoria, the lounge bar, has been recently renovated and is lovely.

Breakfast was good. There is a nice spa with well-priced treatments as well as a pool and jacuzzi. From looking around the hotel, I understand there is a modern wing where hopefully the rooms are more updated. The ones I saw were all quite worn and not up to five star standard.

However, I'd say the biggest issue with this hotel is lack of staff training. When we checked in, the receptionist was quite surly and abrupt. We had a issue with our room so I went back to the reception and, mid way through discussing the issue with me, he answered the phone and began taking someone else's reservation. The issue was sorted out afterward but I felt I should have received his attention until it was resolved. At breakfast, some of the staff were talking/gossiping loudly together at one corner and we generally had to look for the attention of the staff even though there were enough present. Again - these aren't massive issues and I in no way blame the individual staff members themselves - but they do need a bit more training to achieve the service expected in a five star hotel.

In summary - this is a good four star hotel but the rooms need updating and the staff need more training for it to be a proper five star.

The Villa Glavic is actually part of the Hotel Argentina, which itself sits on the rocks above the bay and offers fabulous views over the gorgeous little gem that is old Dubrovnik. Guests at the Villa are welcome to use the facilities of the hotel, such as the private beach, swimming pool, restaurant etc. It is a short walk (10 minutes) into the centre of old Dubrovnik.

Hotel staff were very friendly and helpful, our rooms were clean, traditional and well presented and we had wonderful views across the bay from the balcony of our room.

Evening bar service on the large hotel terrace is a bit hit and miss, and we didn't have a lot of luck in terms of securing pre-dinner gin and tonica, but the breakfasts are very good, and it was lovely to sit outside in the morning sun with lovely fresh pastries, fruit etc.

The old town itself is just glorious - small and perfectly formed - and can really be seen in a day. The walk around the city walls is a must, and takes around 40 minutes (but if you are infirm, beware; there are quite a lot of stairs to climb at the start of the walk).

There are loads of outside cafes and places to eat plus some stalls selling the most delicious ice cream. Pretty much all the waiting staff we met spoke fluent English and were pleasant and welcoming. Great pizzas and cocktails at Restaurant Dubravka.

We took the cable car up to the war museum, which was worth it for the view, and also informative - via old BBC newsreels - of the historic perspective of the war with Serbia. We found it hard to believe that in very recent history the rest of Europe simply sat back and watched the destruction of this bewitching little town, despite it's classification as a UNESCO world heritage site.

Having totally rebuilt the bombed out buildings, and returned the streets to their former glory, this is once again a peaceful, restful, beautiful and very special destination, and the only clues as to its recent problems are the maps strategically placed throughout the city which pinpoint the location of every shell that landed on a roof or paving slab, and which serve primarily to demonstrate the justified and palpable Croatian anger at the injustice of it.

We took a boat to the pretty little seaside town of Cavtat, which was a lovely, peaceful place to wander around, and a peaceful break from the bustle of Dubrovnik.

Room Tip: Ask for the room at the front of the villa if you want sea views and a view of Dubrovnik old town.

The Villa Glavic is, just as some other neighbouring 'villa's' part of the Grand Villa Argentina. The Glavic rooms are located just across the road from Argentina's main entrance (which is located on the 6th floor!). You have to climb some stairs in order to reach the Glavic. The rooms are well equiped, with all the usual (four or five star) amenities. Rooms are a bit on the small side, but bath room is quite spacious (at the least in our room). The hotel is just a short walk (about 10 minutes; alongside a fairly busy one-way street) from the beautiful historic center of Dubrovnik (UNESCO-site), which makes for an excellent location. The views from the breakfast area (outside) are stunning, with views over the old town, and a small island just opposite to the hotel. Quite often you will see cruise ships floating in the waters close to the hotel. All facilities of the Argentina are open to visitors of Glavic. This also applies to the pleasant swimming pool area at the sea side. To reach this, you have to use the large elevator (the small doesn't go there), and then walk through a tunnel.
I think Glavic is an excellent alternative to the Argentina: same facilities and location, but generally a bit cheaper. Also, I noticed that some rooms in the Argentina are poorly located (e.g., overlooking the breakfast area). A few critical comments: the staff (reception and restaurant) is not particularly friendly or communicative. In addition, there is a school nearby. This means that at certain times, you will hear school kids making a lot of noise outside (while waiting for the bus; the bus stop is located just in front of the Glavic, which is actually also quite convenient for the hotel guests).

We stayed just one night but loved it. We were blown away by the view of the old (Dubrovnik) town walls and a shimmering blue Adriatic Sea.
The pool/beach area is very nice, functional and clean. What I particularly liked about it is that it was fairly crowded but quiet - everyone was on their best behavior!
The hotel service was excellent (free valet, dorman etc). Our room was small (by comparison to a standard hotel room) but nicely decorated and the bathroom was top notch/brand new. The place is not cheap but it was well worth it. The location is also convenient for a short 10-minute walk to the old town.
