How to Get There
Was not a great start to be honest. We had a sea view and balcony but on the same floor as the reception which means you will have the restaurant roof in your eye line and all the noise from reception to contend with. My wife complained and they moved us to the 7th floor which offered fantastic views of the sea and the island of Lokrum.The hotel itself is stunning and indicative of the Old City itself. The area by the pool is really nice and ideal for jumping in and out of the sea.The staff can appear a little curt at times and those on reception are not particularly warm or friendly but some of the waitresses were divine. Breakfast was great and I would recommend Tomac as a local bottle of Rose fizz with your evening meals which were pretty good value.
We stayed at the Grand Villa Argentina from 6-13 June 2019. It was not cheap but worth every penny. Our room was at the back of the hotel with a juliet balcony overlooking the hotel gardens, the sea and Lokrum Island. There are terraces where you can order drinks and food, whilst watching the ships, private yachts, fishing boats and kayaks go by. The terrace on level 4 where we had breakfast every morning and drinks each evening was gorgeous ith great views of Dubrovnik and the Adriatic. The service was excellent and meals we had there very good and reasonably priced. At the foot of the hotel there is a terrace with a swimming pool and ladders to climb down into the sea just below the pool. The water is clear and deep, and there is a roped off area where you can swim safely. Niki, the pool attendant is brilliant. The moment you arrive he sets you up with loungers, parasols and towels on the terrace, so no need to rush down to reserve loungers. If you tell him you will be coming backleter or the next day he will have loungers alreay set up for you. His English is very good too. Staff from the cafe terrace above come down to take your drinks orders so you dont have to move an inch. Ana Marija who was serving both on the breakfast terrace in the morning, and later at the cafe terrace above the pool was great. She always had a smile, was very attentive and helpful, and spoke good English - a real ray of sunshine. The indoor pool and spa was very nice and we spent several hours in there. Nika gave me an excellent pedicure. If you are looking for a 5* hotel that has great views, lovely rooms and lots of places to sit and relax, serves good food and is within a comfortable walk from the Old Town, this is it.
We visited the hotel 2 years ago and were back from the 8th to 13th June during which time we were married in Dubrovnik. The hotel gave us a beautiful room with balcony facing Lokrum where our ceremony was held.
A lovely hotel, great breakfast and helpful staff.
We returned to this hotel for the third time in several years as it meets all our expectations. We only decided to book our holiday two weeks before travelling, so were lucky to get a sea view room with balcony. The hotel is in a great location with fantastic views and if the weather is good enough, it’s lovely to eat breakfast and evening meal on the dining terrace overlooking the sea, Lokrum island and Dubrovnik town.
The food is very good at mealtimes with lots of choice at breakfast and room service has a good choice with speedy service and at quite a reasonable price. The staff are efficient and friendly and the main beach/pool guy (who remembered us from two years ago) is wonderful and an asset.
The bedroom has a lovely comfy bed and it’s always good to have the choice of a bath and shower with good quality towels. Housekeeping is done well and everything is kept clean.
A hotel you can trust and one we’d like to return to again.
Superb location with good views of Dubrovnik town. Only 10 mins. walk to city walls with a slight uphill on return. Staff friendly,helpful & efficient. Housekeeping always did a good job in the room, they are often forgotten. Good quality selection at breakfast. However, be careful when reserving a room, depending on what type of room is preferred. . Our Holiday Co's brochure ( Tui ) & the hotel website do not mention that the G V A has a modern (1960's?) annex with rooms linked with a hallway & lifts to the original villa. Nor are there any photo's in the brochure or on the hotel's website showing this. Consequently, when booking a holiday costing nearly
£ 3 k for a week, only to discover that we were in the "main building" which is the modern annex and not the historic villa, was very disappointing to us. We would have assumed that the main building was the actual original villa, especially as this is the main advertisement, showing the lovely villa.. On the G V A website, it shows "villa rooms" & "hotel rooms" . The "hotel rooms" are the smaller modern rooms in the annex, classed as the "Main Building" . Easy to know now that we have actually been there! Even though the hotel was contacted a few days before our arrival (I discovered by accident that not in villa rooms) they were sadly unable to put us in a room in the villa, even though we had booked a deluxe room.
