Positive review for PLACES hotel in Stari Grad! A lovely place to stay with great food, people and music! We were absolutely amazed with IVANA and STEFAN who were always here when we needed a drink :) Most importantly, theese two are so kind, generous, positive, fun and sweet people who made are stay perfect!
Hotel was great and clean. We booked a room with terrace and it was amazing. Staff is nice, friendly and helpful, especially receptionist Dragana as well as Borislav and Jelena at the pool bar. Breakfast was very rich but they should provide more variety for lunch and dinner. All in all it was amazing week and we would recommend it.
Just came back from Places HVAR hotel. What a wonderful stay, it was one week of full recovery! We were seeking for a place that will give us comfort and relaxed atmosphere, nice nature and beach, natural pine shadow…seems like mission impossible? Well, with good information, advices, … Sometimes it’s not easy to have everything you want in one place. But this time we’ve found surprisingly good concept - we choose “FlexURS” offer by Valamar - it means you have bed and breakfast and an amount of money (25€ per person per day) you can spend for lunch/dinner, or you can use for drinks and/or cocktails by the pool during the day or in the evening (what would be our proposal - find Dario, he makes fantastic cocktails, there are some with local fruits and his signature, short talk with him preparing it for you and smile will come to your face[s]:) From our arrival everything went nice, warm welcome by Nikolina and Marko at receptions, and later impression how good and smooth is a young team leading this hotel, with true passion, always ready to help you, give nice advice… Marisa and Luka were there at reception and gave their best when we decided to prolong our stay, again with smile, we felt like we were a part of family during our stay… Looking for activities out of the hotel - concierge Krešo is “a must”, nice and clever guy, with good proposals, if you have no idea, he has:) Advice - use for transfers Hotels shuttle - by side a fact it’s less expensive, the true value is another nice person, driver Vinko - he is more than a driver, if you talk with him, many nice proposals about local hidden places you will hear, he is like an “unrecognised” tourist guide of this hotel. Clear water at the beach, pine wood around, the surrounding is really something to remember! At the end all complements and respect for Mr. Boris Duša, leader/head of this fantastic young team! As we travel a lot, such a modern hotel concept, but still respecting traditional qualities that travellers want to find, is not so common… Will come back for sure!…
At first we were a little bit suspicious, because we didn’t get the room as on the photos. But anyway a lovely S size room with balcony is OK, definitely worth the money. Bed is really 5 star. Bathroom is too small for 4* hotel. Breakfast is almost the same every day. It is tasty and fresh. Staff is very friendly. Flexy thing is really good. You can order food anytime you want from 12-22:00. Menu is pretty much the same all the time but if you are not picky you have plenty of choices. In the lobby bar, pool bar and beach bar, all the staff is very friendly and in a good mood to serve you a drink you want. Beach and a pool is really beautiful. One pool is in the natural shade and the other is hit by the sun all the day, so you can enjoy pool as you like. Sea beach is concrete with stairs. Clean sea water. Almost every day DJ is playing at the pool in the afternoon. I recommend this place for young adults. Starigrad as a town is great. If you want more intense nightlife, Hvar town is about 20min of driving with a car away. Overall amazing summer resort.…
Stefan and Ivana at the lobby bar made our trip fantastic. They are so kind, helpful and nice. I enjoyed every contact with them. Employees such as them have to receive a lot of praises! They’re always smiling and positive even hard days!
I am a morning person and most inportant thing for me is to drink coffee in the morning, Stefan and Ivana made the best latte machiato for my taste. Threw the day they were there to make us the best coctails, they are are always happy and smiling. Thank you
I would like to put out two best employes Stefan and Ivana at the Places by Valamar at Hvar Stari Grad. They are very nice, kind, always smiling and there to help us. One of best experiences at the hotel, thank you very much for everything. Best,
Great party hotel for those who like dance music, coctails, sun, fun, beautiful sea and much more! Read my whole review on my travel blog in CZ and EN: hamiczech.tips For more travel tips follow me on Insta hamiczech or FCB: hamiczech.tips
Lovely place, it’s great that it is just next to the sea! Very nice pool area with many sun beds so always one for you. And great service with nice staff ☺️ Big shout out I would like to give to Stefan the bartender, for giving nice tips on visits and for making good drinks 👏
Dario makes the best cocktails at the pool bar. Had quite a few but none beat his - he was there most nights and gave the best service. I can recommend the honey basil smash. He really puts 100% effort in and seems to love his job! The hotel is absolutely stunning with no lack of areas to chill out and sunbathe even in August. Food is good, sometimes excellent but I think depends on the chef. Transfers into Hvar and Jelsa through the hotel are much cheaper than a taxi!!
