As we stayed in hotel Amfora, which is 50 meters from the beach, we first went to the beach in front of the hotel. The beach was ok, but a bit crowded. The second day we want to private beach in the same bay, called Bonj, and we really loved it! We rented sun beds, and private cabin. The service was excellent: you can order cocktails or meals. But the thing that impressed my wife the most is outdoor seaside massage. Just imagine: after one hour massage, take a swim, and after that sip a cocktail in a comfortable sun bed. A real paradise! Also, one thing to point out: this beach is very private and intimate; a complete opposite from other crowded beaches!
We really enjoyed the night life in Hvar. Of course, the first thing you should do is to find a good restaurant. We went for couple of nights in different restaurants in town, in which the food was not bad, but we were not thrilled (basiclly they offer the same type of food). But 2 days before we returned home, we went to a restaurant in hotel Riva, and this experience was great! We found out that they have different offer then other places (deffinitly unique specialties), and the service was like in best restaurants in Paris or London! And the terrace is huge, on one of the best spots in Hvar!
After staying last year at hotel Palace, this year we decided to change the hotel, especially as we heard that hotel Amfora was reconstructed this winter. And I must say that they did a marvelous job, we really loved the new rooms (the interior decor is very nice, lots of amenities: safe, air-co, hair dryer..). The food was also great with truly a four star hotel service! Also we saw presentation on huge flat screen (in hotel lobby) with the plans for second phase reconstruction of hotel Amfora, and for some other hotels in Hvar (obviously they belong to the same group). For what I saw they are definitely increasing the hotel quality and offer in Hvar. We can wait to go there next year!
