“Great hotel!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2014

Had a lovely 3 night stay at the Amfora, didn't want to leave! Staff were friendly and helpful, informative about ferry times etc, Location of hotel is nice, our room overlooked the pool and over to the sea, beautiful view, the hotel is located a 7-10min walk from Hvar town where all the restaurants and bars are located, this was nice as it is only a short walk and meant the hotel itself was quiet at night in comparison with the other ones that are closer, however we did experience noise in the mornings possibly from the cleaners and guests walking in the corridors, possibly something to expect in a large hotel. The pool area is lovely, very pretty, the shaded seat areas to sit in for something to eat/drink are a nice option. Service around the pool of drinks and food was great and also a nice touch. Would recommend the hotel and would stay here again.

Pool's got waterslide and ocean view. Pool towels stinks of puke. Music from pool bar very noisy. On the whole, the pool area is very busy and staff doesn't seem to notice people from outside also sneaks in. Large breakfast buffet suitable for vegans as they serve soy milk- regretfully it's inside with a canteen atmosphere with weird background music.
We had a nice sea view from our balcony. Room was not clean when we checked in. There was yellow pee and pubes hair on the toilet. Cleaning staff came immediately to clean. Next days they forgot to fill up with towel. When we called the front desk for new, staff did not apologize but sounded as if we were asking for some extras we weren't entitled for. The third day, the cleaning left balcony door open (which we partly shared with neighbors!) and one hour before checking out they blocked our room - again with no apologizes - but claiming we've misunderstood checking out time- (which we couldn't have as everyone else checked out the same time as us). Large gym on the top floor with a balcony to do outdoor stretching/yoga on your own. Great hotel bar with superb sea view.

What can I say, this hotel is amazing. We were celebrating our anniversary and what a great place to celebrate it at. The hotel is beautiful, with spectacular views in a wonderful location. The only thing we were disappointed about was our room not getting made up by the time we got back from a days exploring Hvar late in the afternoon, that's it. The stuff are friendly and everything is clean and breakfast is good. Very happy, would happily recommend to anyone!

This hotel is fine for a big, faceless 4 star which is not the kind of hotel I enjoy but it was a good price hence why we booked it. The location is great, the pool area is fine if you don't mind it being busy. The biggest problem was that it is a conference hotel and there were some loud groups constantly around. Room was clean and comfortable and staff we polite enough.

Room Tip: Make sure you have a room with a view of the sea not a stairwell!

This was our first time in Croatia and my husband and I spent 3 nights at the Amfora Hotel in Hvar, it was wonderful, the hotel is in a very beautiful part of the island, 10 minute walk to Hvar City, beautiful beach, amazing pool, great breakfast buffet (included). We reserved a Superior Room with a balcony and it was perfect, it had a small living room with a sofa and a table, a nice balcony and a spacious room and bathroom, very comfortable!
The only issues are that they do not have a heater for the pool and as we were there in May when temperatures are still low, it was impossible to swim which is a shame in such a beautiful pool. They should heat it during the spring. Also, the check in process was disorganized, we arrived when only a few more people were checking in and they had about 4 people at the front desk who did not seem to be properly trained, it took them a while to find our reservation and instructions to get the room were confusing, we had to ask several times to finally get our room.
Even when those small details we would recommend the hotel, we had a great time!

Room Tip: Get a Superior room so you have a spacious one!

We had a great stay at this hotel. The pools are lovely, and the views are amazing. I found the staff to be very helpful. The breakfast has many options, and if you can get a seat by the window, it is a lovely view. It's a nice walk to the downtown area, and I liked being a little removed from the downtown. I would definitely stay here again.

I will say the laundry seemed expensive. And, I am seeing a lot of comments about loud students staying there, and we had the same experience. It's not he hotel's fault, but it does take away from the experience.
