Villa Glavić5.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Hotel is annexe to Hotel Villa Argentina which is very luxurious which is excellent for meals and as we were there on a sightseeing holiday, it was sufficient as a base. Although our room was classed as ground floor, we had a flight of steps to climb from the road. The room was comfortable but our view from the only window was a wall. All the staff we met were very pleasant and helpful.
We recieved rooms in 2nd and on 3rd floor. The first one had a balcony, the other not (it had a small window), which was very dissappointing, beacuse the price was the same. The rooms were small, and you had to overcome quite a lot of stairs to get to rooms. Overall we weren't pleased. The breakfast in the Villa Argentina was very poor(as you would expect in 3* hotel) and certanily not what it should be. The best thing this hotel has is the view and the location.
Recently had joy of staying at Villa Glavic and loved every moment. Room was wall facing but this helped keep the room cool and air conditioning was spot on. Breakfast over in main hotel was good and we did partake of a glass of prosecco, why not! Our favourite was the big comfy couches on the terrace overlooking the crew, Lockrum Island and Old Dubrovnik. Location was excellent for us, yes it's a good walk but we enjoyed it and stopped at wee supermarket for an ice lolly on way back. Only thing I missed was tea/ coffee facilities in our room, if we had that it would have been perfect. We're already looking to see when we can go back.
This is a classic for Croatia- everything is overpriced and often sub optimal quality. The hotel is fine, especially the pool area and access to the sea. And let's be clear: this is what you are paying for. Hotel rooms decoration are a bit dated (but very clean), the restaurants (especially the pool bar) is outrageously expensive and not very good. Be aware that the villa glavic has no elevator and some rooms are located on the third floor. To end with a positive note: the service is attentive and very nice
One of the best hotels we have ever stayed in over the years and we are only one day into a weeks holiday here in Dubrovnik. Rooms well appointed with good air con, breakfast patio overlooking old town and castle and serving a great variety of hot and cold food.

Villa Glavic is part of hotel Argentina and guests are able to use all Argentina's services, which are pretty amazing. Private beach with pool, gym, restaurant, parking etc. Room itself was ok, very clean and lookd like it had been renewed lately. View to the sea was beautiful from bar and restaurant. Breakfast at terrace was excellent. It took about ten minutes to walk to the old city, but it was worth it. Strong recommendation for Glavic or Argentina.
This villa is just across the road (less than 1 minute walk) to Hotel Argentina, it is its own large villa with hotel style rooms. The rooms here are nothing to shout home about which is why this review has only 4* rather than 5*. You can use all the hotel's facilities including the most stunning views from breakfast you could ever ask for - absolutely divine. The breakfast is very good, wide buffet variety with excellent waiter service for teas and coffees and drinks etc. There is even champagne (local sparking wine) at breakfast included in the price! You can also eat lunch and dinner here and there is also a restaurant for fine dining. The highlight is the pool / sea area which is at the base of the hotel. Staff very good and friendly and provided towels / loungers and umbrellas. We never struggled to get a lounger at any time in the day either. The sea is beautiful here and you can jump off the pool area into the sea and there are also some steps to get in and out. This is a lovely place to relax and unwind and take in the fantastic views, you can also see the walls of the Old Town from here. Hotel staff were excellent, advice on restaurants, booking taxis etc. All very good. They even provided cake, flowers and a birthday letter on my birthday, we didn't tell them it was my birthday so they must have realised from scanning our passports! The bar does happy hour 5-7pm and it's stunning to sit outside with a drink with the beautiful view. The rooms are relatively small and a little tired but do the job, my only complaint is that the air conditioning was not very good so we were a little hot in the room. Location is perfect though, 10 minute walk from the old town to avoid the crowds but very close to walk in. Overall a stunning place to stay, if you plan to spend loads of time in the hotel room you may be a little disappointed, but if like us you want to be by the pool and sea and in the town then absolutely perfect, we would stay here again!
We stayed here for only one night, but wished we'd had longer! We picked the hotel as we wanted to be close to the Old City, have good comfortable rooms and facilities and be in a location which was easy to get to by car which also had parking- this ticked all the boxes perfectly. I knew from reading previous reviews that it had no lift-and we were prepared to carry our luggage-but in the end this wasn't needed. Villa Glavic is part of the Hotel Argentina and has all the facilities you'd expect in a 5 star hotel, including help with the luggage-our cases where taken and collected from our rooms on arrival and departure. The rooms are good, very spacious and with good air con (welcome in the 33 degree heat). Plenty of storage, and clean with good finishes. It's also a lovely quiet spot, we were on the front of the hotel, but couldn't hear anything from the road outside. So a nice retreat from the hustle and bustle of the Old city. The facilities in the hotel Argentina which you use are excellent and rank alongside other 5 stars. Breakfast was very good, with stunning views out over the sea and city. We weren't there long enough to use the indoor pool area or beach pool area-but from a wander round it looked good. The Hotel Argentina is literally a minutes walk from the Villa Glavic, so you are no distance at all from everything you need. Everyone was very friendly and helpful, and requests from storing our luggage to helping give us directions into town where quickly helped. It's a lovely walk into Dubrovnik from the hotel-about 10 mins. And if you feel lazy on the way back (uphill!) there are no shortage of taxis outside the City gates to bring you back-for about €6. A day definitely wasn't long enough in this beautiful city, and we've already decided to return to the Villa Glavic when we come back to Dubrovnik.
We stayed in the impressive Villa Glavic for three nights while in Dubrovnik. It is a three story 'off-shoot' of the Grand Argentinian resort across the road, so check in and all of the facilities are over there. The Villa building is up a set of stairs from the main road, and then our room was on the second floor which means more stairs. The main hotel however has lifts so there are no stairs over there. Breakfast was served each morning on the terrace overlooking the sea. Very impressive! A good range of hot and cold options, cereals, breads, fruits, eggs, pancakes just to name a few. There are two pools, one indoor (which we didn't use) and one outdoor by the sea which we spent a lot of time at. The Beach Restaurant is very good, and they also provide a drinks service to the outside pool. Our room was fairly small (common by European standards though) but had all of the necessary features including air conditioning. It is about a 15 minute walk from the Old Town which didn't cause us any problems (we're reasonably fit 30-somethings). I would choose to stay here again, but would more likely choose the main Grand Argentinian purely to avoid the hotel stairs.
The Villa Glavic is extra accommodation for the Grand Hotel Argentina (5 star) and although the accommodation in the Villa is slightly cheaper guests have access to all the hotel facilities. The villa is just across the road from the hotel. There is no lift which could be a problem but we were on the ground floor at the front. Also the rooms at the back have a cliff face to look at but how long do you spend looking out of the window when you can be outside in such a beautiful place as Dubrovnik! It could have made the rooms darker but I can't comment on that. We could not fault the service or cleanliness in the room and linen and towels were changed regularly. Slippers and gowns provided certainly in our room and a delicious chocolate waited by the bed every night for our return after dinner! Room also had safe and mini-bar. All the staff we came across in the Villa and the hotel were friendly and courteous and helpful. The Grand Hotel Argentina is lovely with a bit of character and 'old world' charm. The choice at breakfast was great - plenty of cold or hot options (including omelettes if wanted) and even Prosecco if wanted. Coffee and tea made freshly and not from a machine. The restaurant had a large outside terrace with beautiful views over the sea to the Island of Lokrum and of the old town. We ate in the restaurant at night twice and both meals were good. There was also music both nights - a keyboard and singer on one and a piano player the other. There are places to sit in the garden, again with lovely views. There is also a pool bar near the pool where drinks and snacks are served. We had lunch there on arrival while waiting for the room to be ready and that was also very good. The outside seawater pool was lovely with even depth throughout. Sunbed and towel service provided and also drinks from the bar if required. Steps also down into the sea. Plenty of sitting areas in and out, near reception and in the bar area and near the restaurant. Spa facilities and indoor pool neither of which we used but looked very clean and good. The hotel also has another accommodation Villa adjoining which has another restaurant (we didn't try that one) and seemed popular for weddings. Villa and hotel in good position just about 10/15 mins into the old town.
