Ploce is the
neighbourhood just east of Dubrovnik's Old
Town (Stari Grad) and there are four beautiful hotels in Ploce. Private accommodation is more limited however as the terrain rises steeply behind the coastal road.
Ploce is the hotel neighbourhood closest
to Dubrovnik's Old Town and Dubrovnik sightseeing. Each
hotel has a rocky private beach and you're still close to the public Banje
Beach. The hotels have shuttle buses to transport you to the
Old Town but there are also public buses.
The location is so desirable and space is so limited that only top-line hotels have property in Ploce.
It's a five-star sybaritic paradise of pools, massages, beauty treatments
and fine dining plus there are great views of the Old Town from almost everywhere. A 2017 overhaul has brought the venerable establishment to a world-class level.
The facilities of the Grand Villa Argentina, available for all guests of the Glavić, include a private beach, an outdoor salt water swimming pool, an indoor swimming pool, a wellness centre and a gym, as well as a café, a restaurant and lounge bar and a spacious restaurant terrace.
There's much less private accommodation available in Ploce than in Lapad, mainly because the terrain rises steeply from the road, making it unsuitable for housing in many places. But here are some gems compiled from actual visitor reviews on booking.com:
Studios and a one-bedroom apartment with terrace and sea view.
