“Stunning”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2014

We went and stayed for 3 days. We stayed one night in Milna at a family run hotel - a bit far out but the rooms were fantastic and the food was very home made. Also stayed two nights at Hotel Adriana. Great hotel, very central, best breakfast ever but I think its a priced too highly.

“..stayed on Hvar for 3 days - so relaxing !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2014

on our visit to Croatia, we took a catamaran boat from Split to Hvar - 1 hour 5 min ride to Hvar. Buy tickets in advance on Jadrolinija.hr. You would need to stop by their office in harbor in Split to exchange your confirmation for an actual ticket. The ride is fast and convenient. Island Hvar has amazing beaches and restarants. Also taking a taxi water boat ride to an island of Palmizanana for a day trip to a quiter location with also an amazing lunch place called Toto's.

“Hvar island”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2014

Probably the top island off Croatia
Centered round Hvar town, which is buzzing; probably more for the young; the whole place has a permanent party atmosphere
Nice architecture and loads of places to eat and drink
Not excessively commercialised - yet; but more expensive than other places
Ferry connections (Jadrolinija) are excellent, but booking needed in high season
Few beaches, like anywhere in the Mediterranean, but swimming in the Adriatic is a dream
For a bit of peace and quiet, second town Stari Grad definitely worth a visit; possibly other places on the island too (which we didn't visit); reasonable bus service
