“A stationary cruise ship. But good service overall.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

This is a huge hotel , but somehow the staff make it work , even if the service is a little erratic at times. But it is a lovely setting with access to the beach, cafes, and good restaurants all around the hotel. It's also great if you want to be close to the party scene in Hvar but not necessarily part of it because all the rest of the hotels are bombarded with loud disco music until 2 am. Breakfast was a little daunting at first given the size of the hotel ( and the number of guests) and it is included in the room price. Overall , a good places, especially if you have kids. The hotel works well, but need s a little more staff during the peak summer period given the size of it.

Room Tip: All rooms are pretty decent but make sure you get room with a sea view, even if partial.

Great resort. Great food. We had a suite which was very nice and beautiful view. There are different wings to the hotel so it is huge. Make sure you check which wing you are in before you book your room. Waterfall is nice, can walk down to the beach below as well. We stayed two nights. Well located and we can walk everywhere from there.

Modern Hotel in great location only 10 mins walk to main Hvar centre. Pool was so fantastic we found it hard to drag ourselves away to do anything else. Our room had an amazing sea view and was fresh and clean. The best breakfast buffet of our entire european tour. Service from all staff very good

Hvar, stunning as itself, offered us way more than good vacation....It gave us a chance to experience amazing beaches, delicious food and great fun at the same time. Hotel Amfora has fulfilled all our expectations, everything is really close, stuff is always polite, food is great...We are coming back again for sure!

Hvar Island is one of the most beautiful Islands in Croatia, and our stay at Amfora Hotel was amazing. We stayed for 15 days from 16 August and had a suite with breathtaking view of the sea , pool and other islands. Service in the hotel was exceptional in every department, 10 out of 10 and I must particularly praise Irene from reception and her kindness and wonderful customer service, she made our stay so welcoming and pleasurable. Food was amazing in the hotels restaurants as well as room service. Location of the hotel and the breathtaking views are a must!
My girlfriend and I stayed for 15 days and had a one of the most amazing holidays, and we will definitely go back next year. We loved it so much that next year will go as group of 8 people.
we already recommended this hotel to all of our friends.
To all the staff at Amfora Hotel, Thank you again for exceptional service and see you next year.

All the best wishes, Eldin, London

The hotel seemed like a singles hot spot. From the loud music, the crowd, the tattoos, to the condoms in the rooms my family was clearly in the wrong spot. My kids loved the pool and the water slide; I worried I might catch something. Not what we thought we would see in Hvar, but times change.

We booked this hotel for the beginning of our Croatia trip for a bit of luxury; we were really looking to relax somewhere plush for a few days and this hotel didn't disappoint. The pool area is amazing; great for kids, couples, friends, everyone! Complete with childrens pools, waterfalls, water slide, pool bar overlooking the ocean - it is absolutely beautiful and worth every penny. Service is pretty decent too and although we were a little worried that our spend there during the day may be a little excessive, the bill wasn't too painful at the end of our 4 day stay.

There is room for improvement however. We were upgraded to a studio as we were there for 4 nights; it didn't feel like much of an upgrade to be honest and I am glad we didn't end up in the original room we'd booked, as I imagine it might be a little on the small side. Wifi wasn't strong enough in the rooms or by the pool to access either, only in the lobby. To be honest the rooms themselves aren't much better than what you expect at a Premier Inn (maybe that is testament to Premier Inns!)

Location wise you are about a 8-10 minute walk away from the main square and the bars, but its a nice walk and you can catch boat taxis outside the hotel to go to the little islands.

To sum up; amazing pool, good service, smallish/less luxurious than expected rooms, but then how much time do you spend in the room! Will definitely stay here when we go back to Hvar.
