What could be more refreshing than a beachfront vacation on the coast of the blue Croatian sea. Situated on the Island of Hvar, the recently renovated beachfront LABRANDA Senses Resort with pools and specialized restaurants offers excellent services. Built 50 meters from the sea, the 184 rooms LABRANDA Senses Resort stands as a bastion of relaxation. The contemporary designed hotel is awash with aromatic pine trees and Mediterranean plants, giving it a lush vibe that is unlike most traditional Mediterranean hotels.

I went here with my bestie in September for a girly holiday for a week and we loved it but sadly we went at the end of the season so there wasn’t much entertainment apart for a couple of men who played a keyboard but the food was delicious and there was plenty on offer. The sandy beach was about a 5min walk away we did find out there was a nudist beach further down the road but we didn’t visit this one lol. The hotel staff was friendly and very helpful and if you wanted to get a taxi into Hvar they had their own taxi service which was much cheaper than other taxis. Would definitely visit here again and would highly recommend this hotel but be warned it’s about a 45min taxi ride from Hvar and if you want the party scene don’t go out of season a mistake we learnt from.

Great hotel with super friendly and helpful staff. Clean and spacious rooms but we did have a suite. Standard rooms pretty small. Sea view is best although through the trees. We went out of season so many of the local trips were closed down. Food is plentiful and varied with good quality. Kristina and Viktoria work hard to keep everything running smoothly. Very good value for a late summer break all inclusive.

Enjoyed our two week stay here and the weather was better than we anticipated although was feeling chilly at night, light top required. You need to go all inclusive as there are no other places to eat or drink within a 25 minute walk into Vrboska where there was a small selection of bars and restaurants. Our room with partial see view, 304, on the top floor was good. Breakfast was the best meal of the day, no complaints there, good choice and nice bread. Lunch and dinner were hot buffet style, and as normal with this type of service the food is not hot enough. The choice on the buffets was just about ok as most nights you could find something to eat. The pool bar we used every night . The draught lager was ok and the choice of local spirits was ok. The bar staff were good. Every night a couple of guys played guitar and sang to keep us entertained, Used the pool area every day and no problem getting sun beds which were comfortable. The water temperature was ok after the initial shock of getting in as long as you kept moving. The towels provided by the hotel were good. The sea temperature was surprisingly better than the pool.

This hotel is a solid 5* experience for anyone looking to escape and unwind and be pampered in a calm; aesthetically pleasing space in very unspoilt countryside. A flight to Split airport; coach to Split then ferry, then another coach, with so worth pre-booking transfers Nothing about this hotel is shabby or worn. Beautiful furniture; large photo canvases; neutral but not dull nor boring colour schemes; a very calm atmosphere a\ & extremely well managed Excellent food & wide choices, & the all-in drinks packages are very generous/good quality. An excellent self service coffee machines available any time The hotel is set in pine woods and blends in so well that it can barely be seen at all from across the bay. All views are beautifully framed by interesting wind-sculpted trees & shrubs. Beach - the rocks are smooth but the sea floor is gravel so either enter via the jetty steps or take beach/water shoes. We enjoyed table tennis, walking the trails & oh boy the spa!. Best massages ever. Nothing fancy in the way of facilities but when your eyes are closed & you’re enjoying a heavenly massage at a very very reasonable price who cares? If you want to be in the thick of things you’ll hate it so don’t go. But if your idea of heaven is a comfortable bed:: restful sleep; extremely fresh & varied food; charming/ super helpful staff; beautiful views; superb massages and extremely pleasant fellow guests then this will tick all your boxes.. Enjoy

Our overall experience was very pleasant - a beautiful resort. Would be enhanced if perhaps a courtesy shuttle to the nearest town(s) and some activities were included. Could be made more comfortable if the room was larger to allow for luggage storage.

The resort is very good overall with friendly helpful staff and particularly good food and is good value for money. My only criticisms are the terrible house wines, the pervasive smell of sewage by the restaurant and bar, and poor outdoor maintenance. Also a lot of the facilities are closed down at the end of season which we were not told about before we arrived and the entertainment was very limited.

The resort itself is beautiful and the location is ideal. I would recommend renting bikes to travel to the town of Jelsa but walking to the town of Vrboska is very manageable and it's a lovely walk. Our first night we took the walking tour to Vrboska with Antonio and he was a great tour guide who offered great knowledge of not only the local town but also knowledge of Croatia. The staff was helpful (especially the bartenders). The only complaints I have are sometimes the outside bar smells a little like sewage. I am not sure if it was because of the end of the season or what. As our stay went on the smell did improve. The entertainment was repetitive at night but one of the nights there was a traditional Dalmatian night in the cafeteria that was fun. Also, the woman that does the excursions seems to be overwhelmed and could benefit from some extra help. I am not sure if there is more support for that when the season is in full swing but she was overworked and rather unpleasant. The cleaning staff was wonderful and they were generous with the bottled water. I would highly recommend the half board where you get two meals and drinks at dinner time. The drinks are reasonable at the bar and the food was decent for a buffet. I am not sure why the dining room really stressed only spending 45 minutes at meal times when there is plenty of seating. That made me feel a little rushed when overall the vacation was laid back. If you want a relaxing vacation and a break this is a nice place to do so.

Dear Hamerry88, Thank you for writing a kind review. We are delighted you had a great and relaxing time at our lovely location. A friendly people here like to share traditions, stories and are quite amusing so it is no wonder you had this nice experience. To bring our culture and local flair closer to the guests we also like to make some of Dalmatian nights you could enjoy and have fun. Also, we have program in place to enrich entertainment even more. Hope you will like it when come here next time. Thank you Hamerry88 for all suggestions. It definitely helps us with improving, just like we did with the bad air scent you wrote, that was due to maintenance refurbishments. Looking forward to seeing you again where we warmly welcome you.

From the moment we got off the plane it was easy relaxed and stress free. We paid for transfers and we are so glad we did as it worked so well and was very efficient. We were met at every stage of our journey with instructions of what to do and where to go. We had time to visit some of the old town of split which was just amazing would highly recommend if you can. The ferry crossing was exciting and just beautiful! The hotel is trendy modern and very clean in a beautiful location right on the waters edge in amongst a pine forest. It's very quiet, relaxing with beautiful little coves to explore. The rooms are lovely with big comfy beds and amazingly soft Pillows! Some have mentioned how small the rooms are but we found them to be the perfect size as we were hardly In it and it has a balcony which was nice. The food was great but I especially appreciated the fact they had allergy symbols on all the dishes which was helpful as I have an allergy to gluten however i would be careful if you are coeliac. The breakfast could of been better though as it was the same everyday and I couldn't have much but other than that the food was fab! The bar staff were great and we found them to be very generous with the spirits! My only complaint which is why I've only given 4stars is because the entertainment was so bad! I don't know if it was because it was the end of the season but it was shocking. But then we didn't go for the entertainment we went to relax and relax we did! Also Some of the tiles along the pier are cracked and have fallen through in places so its abit of a trip hazard....but then if u fall you'll fall into the sea! We hired bikes one of the days and cycled to the 2 little towns along the coast which was so much fun and very easy as the roads and paths are quite flat with not many hills. All in all it was a fabulous relaxing holiday. We don't normally go back to the same place twice but on this occasion we definitely would! Was a very special holiday in a very special place.

Fabulous experience, beautiful location and short 20 min walk into Vbroska (which is beautiful harbour town), stunning costal walks in other direction too. Food was genuinely the best we’ve experienced all inclusive! Well done kitchen team, the choice and attention to detail in you flavours and seasoning was excellent! We really looked forward to seeing what was new each day and your salad bar section was incredible! All staff were lovely, special shout out to pool bar manager, Yahia, always so friendly and welcoming. Would 100% recommended to anyone, we would love to go back again! Finally, I was nearly put off going by a few negative reviews and the fear of transferring from Split to Hvar island by Ferry. If you’re thinking the same, don’t be! The hotel, food and service are all fantastic and the ferry was no bother at all! We did our own transfers, picked car up from airport, drove to ferry port, yes you might have to wait a few hours but Split is so pretty also the wait is a delight, just put your car in line then go for a wonder around! The ferry journey itself is beautiful and who can’t while away 2 hours looking at beautiful coastal scenery, chatting or reading a book?!! Hotel is 25 minutes from getting off the ferry, great roads, uncomplicated! Don’t miss out on this Gem of a holiday because of fear, I nearly did and I’m soooooo glad we went! We had the most incredible holiday, LOVE Hvar, see you again one day 💕💕
