First of all the island in itself is a true experience. Beautiful, wonderful ocean and nice beaches. The hotel is beautifully located and the interiors of the rooms are nice. The staff is overall nice and service oriented with a few exceptions. Really nice pool area and very closed to the sea. We highly recommend it and overall our experience... More

The hotel is very pleasant and the rooms are nice. The pool area is nice and clean, although it can be a struggle to find sunbeds if you're out after 9.30am. We booked two rooms and it was a hassle to get rooms next to each other, although they finally got us on the same floor at least. We ate... More

My friend and I stayed here for 4 nights on holiday and we loved it! It is in a great location... about a 10 min walk to town and right next to hula hula beach party (if you're into that kind of thing). Also the pool is very nice. It is one of the only hotels we were able to... More

We actually booked a sister hotel of the Amfora, The Palace Hvar but the website i booked through said it had aircon and a week before travelling i realised from reviews on here that it didnt so complained and was offered to upgrade to the Amfora. Having read the reviews here i wasnt sure if i should take the upgrade... More

I will start with the positives - we had a lovely view from our room. The room was very small and the service was poor. The beach was very crowded and the person you pay to rent a chair was incredibly rude. We needed to check out early to catch the ferry back to Split - after arranging for transportation... More

The photos online of this hotel are very misleading. The view from the lobby balcony is spectacular, including the pool and beach area below. However, the hotel is mediocre at best. I initially had booked a room not realizing it was not an ocean view. I asked to change it (and pay the extra) but was told they were sold... More

Staff were rude and we were ignored upon arrival, and carried our own bags to our rooms. Rooms were small and crowded, and one smelt of stale smoke. View was good, but as soon as you opened balcony doors you were met with ridiculously loud music. Very un-relxing. Pool was over-crowded, beech in-front of hotel was discussing. Hotel breakfast was... More

Middle-class hotel with Balkan mentality, at Monaco prices. No real service. The breakfast is terrible (the same for all morning), the rooms are poor and many kilometers every day to reach the pool from the room. Spa? What indoor Spa? There is a “sister” hotel somewhere nearby and this can be used as an indoor pool, for extra charge. Therefore,... More

Another hotel in the Sunchani Hvar chain. Actually I think they own like 70% of Hvar. This is a large hotel with a lot of room and has recently been renovated. We were upgraded to a recently renovated room with a nice sea view which was kind of small but very nicely decorated. The bathroom has a funny "boa like"... More

Staff were rude and unhelpful, pictures on the website are very deceiving don't be fooled by them! Food is awful, personally ended up checking out a day earlier to get away! I found the people in general weren't happy to see tourists and wanted to take advantage of you however only good thing I can say is that the island... More
