We traveled in July 2015 with a family of four (including a 6 year-old and a 2 year-old). This hotel was close to being a truly extraordinary experience, but fell short for reasons out of their control. Basically it is an incredibly quaint hotel with wonderful service, that happens to be next to a very busy and touristy yacht harbor.... More

We stayed at Palmizana for the last week in July and I cannot praise it enough. From our transfer over by speedboat from Hvar to our last delicious breakfast, everything was wonderful. We were in White Villa, perfectly located above the beach, and it was beautiful. Comfy beds, fantastic private terrace, surrounded by the garden ... Heavenly. We chose half... More

My group of 10. Ages 10-65 loved Palmizana. We went to Bacchus for lunch and hung out for hours under the olive trees. Beautiful view and awesome food. We then went to the next door and had drinks at the coolest bar. We only wish we got a seat in the tree house.

Amazing island near Hvar. Only 20 min from port of Hvar. Excellent crystal sea, there is few restaurants and bars with great offer. Also there you have very nice and comfortable deck chairs on the beach. When you walk trough island from Marina to beaches feels like passing trough little jungle. There is a lot of domestic flowers, millions kinds... More

The staff are very friendly and welcoming.The botanical garden, in which the complex is built, was founded by the Meneghello family back in 1906. Creating a back-to-nature atmosphere, it is densely planted with pines, palms, orange trees, cacti, and aromatic herbs such as rosemary, sage, lavender and mint, steps lead down to a pebble beach, with sun beds and parasols....

The Meneghello estate is more like staying with a family than staying at a hotel. The multigenerational staff is super friendly and helpful at arranging transport and daytime activities, ie circumnavigating the island in a small boat. The seafood is excellent, just point out your fresh fish and follow your waitress's advice. You can't go wrong. Cottages are big and... More

We have just returned from a one week stay in the White Villa - family of five, with 23 year-old son and two daughters aged 13 and 11. I will stick some practical tips (and prices for fellow moth-friendly wallet-clutching dads) below but overall impressions first. The island is striking - it took a couple of days for this to...

Meneghello Estate, on the small island of Palmizana, just before the coast of Split and Hvar, is not. far from Western Europe, but feels like another world, far away in the ocean. it offers 5 idyllic houses on an estate-like property within a huge botanic garden. Besides, next to a charming and very hospitable local restaurant, the island offers some... More

This is not the quiet island retreat one would expect from the publicity put out by the hotel. During the high season, the small bay where the cottages are located is full of large yachts (more than 60; we counted) and at least as many smaller boats, so there is constant noise from motors and plenty of oil in the...

It is not really an hotel but a place where you feel part of the family as soon as you arrive. The little colourfull houses are all decorated with paintings and sculptures made by Croatian artists. The surrounding gardens are filled with all kind of cactuses and plants and the scent of lavendel and rosemary. We stayed at the Turquoise... More
