Grand Villa Argentina

Luxury Hotels
Grand Villa Argentina is a Dubrovnik hotel complex which combines the highest standards of elegance and comfort. The business politics and work ethic of “Argentina” have for a long time been a traditional bench mark for excellence in Dubrovnik. Hotel Argentina is famous for the attention to detail shown to every guest as well as the unrivalled hospitality which makes visitors feel special, comfortable and relaxed. Apart from holidays, Grand Villa Argentina is the ideal choice for meetings, congresses and other business presentations due to the various possibilities available in the hotel.

Even though the Grand Villa Argentina was completely renovated in 2002 the whole building has retained its spirit and the entire new interior as well as the gardens have kept their architectural beauty, perhaps even more shiningly beautiful than ever before. Grand Villa Argentina is made up of five separate objects: Villa Argentina, Villa Orsula, Villa Glavić, Villa Sheherezade and Hotel Argentina.

All of the 162 rooms of Grand Hotel Villa Argentina are furnished and equipped with stylish furniture which, along with all the other details, gives you the feeling of a combination of the modern and the traditional. The hotel also has 7 apartments and 9 deluxe rooms which can satisfy the requirements of the most demanding business and leisure guests.

The advantages of the complex Hotel Villa Argentina are many and varied. A private beach offering glorious views over the Old City of Dubrovnik, inside and outdoor pools, a mere 5 minute stroll from the heart of the Old City, free valet garage parking are just the tip of the iceberg. The restaurant and bar complex offers various cuisines from international to local, and the ambience of the Mediterranean gardens and terraces with views towards the Old City compliment every meal perfectly.

Overall good hotel with some flaws

My husband and I stayed at the GVA Hotel Argentina for 3 nights at the beginning of August 2008. Overall, the hotel was above satisfactory. The location was great - just a 10 minute walk from the old city where all the restaurants and shops are (you can't get much closer than this). The hotel is also located right on the water so we could just walk down and there is an area to sunbathe and ladders that lead from the rocks into the sea. The hotel was clean and the view of the sea from our room was really nice (we were on the 1st floor). I don't think there is much better than this in the town of Dubrovnik because I did a lot of research before I left on the hotels and this was really the best choice.
However, we were not happy with a few things - namely the poor quality of service that we received from the front desk reception and from the concierge. The concierge was a woman who gave us very little information and seemed to not know any of the answers to the questions we asked about boats, trips in the area, etc. She always had to pull out pamphlets from local boat companies or tourist companies and basically read the information from these pamphlets. And when she did not know the answer to a question we had (because the information was not on one of the pamphlets), she simply shook her shoulders and said she didn't know - she did not offer to call the company to ask or find the information for us. We were looking to take a boat out for 2 people and she said that the cheapest boat we could rent for the day would be at 500 euros. We were shocked that there were not more options and actually in the end, it was only after we pushed her that she pulled out yet another pamphlet that showed a lower priced boat rental. The funniest part was when she said that the following day, a Sunday, she was only working from 8 - 10 am because it was Sunday and she "needed a break". My husband and I laughed at the thought of a hotel not having a concierge on a Sunday - during the high season - just because they want to give the person "a break"!

The reception service was similar in that they did not offer help voluntarily and it was only after we pushed them that they helped. We had to work with them to rent a car for the day we were checking out so we could drive to Split (because it was Sunday and the concierge was no longer working!) and I asked them to call a local car rental company. They did and when I received a price quote that was crazy for one day (like $200 because the company was charging us for 2 days instead of one since they accounted for someone to drive the car back to Dubrovnik). The hotel reception said that we would not get anything cheaper - that we should just accept this price. But I did not listen to their advice. I asked them to call another agency and when they did, I received a price of $100. I was really annoyed with the reception because it seemed like their attitude was one of apathy and I expected much more from a hotel. After all, we were tourists in a country that we were unfamiliar with and the hotel was there for us to receive information from.

One more thing - stay away from the food! We ate lunch one time at the restaurant near the beach area and it was HORRIBLE and overpriced for the quality they served us. There are nicer little restaurants in the old town - although don't expect the food to be so great in Dubrovnik overall. But the old town is really beautiful and charming and so there are other things to appreciate there than the food. I hope this review helps!

3 lovely days there, hideous end that spoilt it

Other than the Grand Villa's location being walking distance to old town Dubrovnik, the hotel has nothing else to offer - bad service, old, musty rooms that haven't been upgraded in decades, a pathetic "spa" and a tired, overpriced restaurant menu. >>> more
Excellent service and location

Although quite pricey this hotel is well worth considering. It has a brilliant location on the sea side within close proximity of the old city. >>> more
Mixed review

My husband and I spent 3 nights at the GVA in early September. The location was wonderful! Our balcony room in the hotel provided gorgeous views of Old Dubrovnik for evening drinks. >>> more
