“Honeymoon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2014

Just back from Croatia and chose this as our base for our stay in Hvar.
On arrival we were greeted with an upgrade and a bottle of fizz - lovely touch.
Throughout the stay the staff were first class - attentive, friendly and welcoming.

The location we loved, what a superb sea area for guests. And a lovely walk into town and back to walk off the food.

Our Room was clean and spacious with a great view.

Will definitely be back. Loved it.

A peaceful hotel, with a 20 minute walk to the harbour. The service was attentive but I found the room lacking in terms of what you would normally expect from a 4 star hotel. A bit basic. The sea view however was very nice. If you want to avoid the bustle this is a secluded hotel with a lovely outside area. Would advise not to eat here though, lunch was very poor and expensive and its much better to walk into town.

We recently stayed at this lovely hotel. After a confusing and long transfer to the hotel, we were upgraded to a room with a lovely view, which we really appreciated. The hotel is in a great location. A lot of the hotels in hvar town do not offer a private beach and if they do, the coastal walk runs straight past them. However, this hotel has a beautiful private beach, which provides a great escape from the large number of tourists that visit the island. The staff were very welcoming and a young guy at reception drove us down in his own car so that we could catch the ferry, which was very helpful. Only thing we would highlight is the battle for sunbeds as there's only a limited part of the beach area which gets the sun all day. Be prepared to get up early if you want the top spot.

this is a great location. perched on the side of a cliff, on the water, 15 mins walk from Hvar town port. The place is pretty modern and the private beach is quite small, but a very nice spot to relax. We had one of the cheap rooms, which had no view and was quite small. But clean and modern. The staff were all quite friendly, but on a few occasions they seems a bit lost. The was confusion about where we could get beach towels, and when we could get a massage. maybe they were new starters. Breakfast is OK, but nothing special. Overall a very nice copuple of days though

We were here for only 1 day but would like to have stayed for much longer. It is a beautiful resort situated in a lovely setting
Hvar reminded us of the Amalfi coast with its beautiful clear water and rock formations.
The staff was very accommodating and friendly.

My husband and I stayed here in June and had a wonderful time. We felt like we were in a delightfully secluded mini-resort.

In particular, for us:

- the staff, especially at the restaurant were very friendly and accommodating.
- the staff at reception are welcoming and very helpful.
- the waterfront/beach area was the perfect escape with views, easy access to the water and sun beds you can lay on all day ( I can attest to this, as I did devote and entire day to this!)
- great scenic walk of about 20 minutes to hvar harbour, with a waterfront bar along the way if you get thirsty (so my holidays involve a lot of laying by the water and drinking...)
- the rooms are exceptionally clean. The beds were not the most comfortable or luxurious, but they did the job and we certainly didn't lose any sleep.
- this is an all around relaxing place to be, if you want a wind down and beach time in hvar, it's perfect.
- there is a gym, but I was too busy attending to the aforementioned lazing.

We really enjoyed our stay and highly recommend it.

This hotel surpassed expectations. Great service, very friendly staff and good facilities. It's position on the water cannot be beaten. It is quieter and more secluded than hotels closer to town, which we liked. It is an easy 20 minute walk along a beautiful catwalk into town.
