Over hyped

Place is over hyped by the internet reviews. I found it nothing great but good people to party with. Theres not much to do on Hvar and thus this gains more importance.

Went to end of season closing party and it was terrible. Drinks are expensive and everybody there is quite pretentious and posh. Not the kind of vibe we were after at all.

Me and my other half had read a few good reviews about the beach club, so we thought why not try it? MISTAKE! From the off we experienced terrible hospitality, drinks that tasted watered down and the music was mediocre - then to bloody awful - and back to mediocre - all night. Granted the setting is beautiful, but even... More

This is the place to be for late night (well, 11pm-1am) cocktails. Outdoor/indoor bars and seating. Good music. The younger crowd then gets on the water taxis and heads to Carpe Diem Beach Party across the harbor.

I was on Hvar recently and felt very unsafe. I saw bouncers bash tourists even women. I also had locals threaten to kill me if I didn't pay them to use the public toilet. I have heard that the Hvar Town is controlled by the Local mafia who also control the local police. Hvar is dangerous you shouldn't go there.

This place is by far the most beautiful place to party, fancy a cocktail or chill with an amazing view.

Atmosphere is slow as most tables are reserved despite there not being anyone on them. Drinks are expensive compared to the rest of the bars on the harbour. As mentioned in many reviews below we were treated to a display of the rude, threatening bouncers. Rather than argue back, we just left. After reading reviews here, im glad we did... More

So I went hear daytime with my boyfriend for an entire weak (we did not go during the night). The place has a beautiful nature. We rented sunbeds (70 HRK each) and just chilled and enjoyed the peace and great lounge music. Beware as they do not accept cars if your tab is not 500HRK or above. That is a... More

We loved the island but it was defo tailored more towards the non-family crowd. We ate at one of the restaurants and found it slightly pricey. It was also difficult to moor the boat as it was so so busy! Great place would defo go back and party without the kids 👍

Very very expensive, then when you get in there's a very weird vibe like everyone is only there because they've paid in and don't want to leave just yet, awkward dancing and rubbish music. Boat trip over was the best bit but should have stayed on and gone home again! Bars along front of harbour SO much better and much... More
