“Wonderful Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2012

We stayed at this hotel in July. The family that runs it couldn't be nicer. For its price, this place is great and in a great location, small fishing village with beaches and local food options, not far from the nightlife of Hvar city. Relaxing, welcoming... anyways, one of the best places I have stayed in recent years.

I was traveling with my husband and a friend. My friend stayed in a different hotel, the Amfora Beach resort because Fortuna was fully booked. We both spent time at both our hotels and the main difference is that even though her hotel was enormous with a really nice pool area and right next to town which was a plus, the reception and concierge services were awful, not helpful, and impersonal.

In contrast, Hotel Fortuna is run by a friendly family who really does everything to make their guests' stay pleasant. When I needed something ironed and asked for an iron, I was told they didn't have one to bring to my room but instead ironed it for me for no charge and my husband had his laundry done quickly and for a reasonable price.

The ride into town only takes 5 minutes or so and is scenic and is offered by the hotel at about half the price a taxi charges and they will pick you up in town as well and is available whenever you need a ride, someone will literally drop what they are doing and drive you. We used this service several times unless we were coming back after midnight, then we took a taxi. The transfer to and from the ferry - or catamaran (make sure when you ask them to pick you up or drop off, you make the distinction) is included. The beach area is right outside the door and is lovely. The best part about this hotel is the food, we had two amazing meals - prawns, whole fish, salad, wine - and it is such a better value and better tasting than what we found in old town.

The room was plain but clean and spacious. The wifi worked well. Overall a wonderful stay.

We spent our last night in Croatia at the Fortuna Hotel and were sorry we hadn't planned a longer stay. We thought the location 6 kms outside of Hvar town might be a problem, but it worked out well. The hotel picked us up at the ferry at 06h30, and took us back to Hvar in the afternoon at a moment's notice, and didn't charge us for either service. The hotel has a lovely spot right on the (stone) beach, with loungers for hire at 20 kuna per day. The staff were extremely friendly and service-orientated, breakfast was plentiful, fresh and delicious. Our room was clean, very comfortable, fully air conditioned, equipped with a fridge, coffee machine, and fabulous shower. We didn't have a single criticism, it was amazing.

Room Tip: We had room 103, which has an extra alcove for the sleeper couch, making it more spacious for famili...

Magda and her family run a superb little hotel right on the beach. Nothing was too much trouble for them - their hospitality was exemplary. The rooms are very clean, comfortable and freshly decorated - and linen and towels changed very regularly. We could have stayed much longer!

Room Tip: We had a side room which was perfectly nice but if we return next year I would love one of the rooms...

The owners and their family could not be any more attentive to their guests needs making your stay a truly memorable experience. The rooms are very comfortable. Every meal was delicious and very reasonably priced.
Milne bay was beautiful and only hope that it will never change.

This hotel was such a great find; an amazing location right on the beach, the usual impeccably friendly and helpful Croatian hospitality and a really hearty breakfast to get the day going. Just perfect!

We enjoyed 4 nights overlooking Milne bay in one of the ocean view rooms. The family who runs this hotel could not do more to help during your stay - they picked us up from Hvar town (5 mins drive only, there is a bus but its not frequent or convenient) after we stayed there for three nights previously, offered to take us back as often as we needed, bought us ferry tickets for our return to Split and offered anything else that we needed to enjoy our stay. The rooms were basic but comfortable - the air conditioning was needed during summer - but the view from the balcony was incredible. There is plenty to do in Milne if you enjoy swimming and strolling - there are a number of small bays to swim around, a large number of cheap and great quality bbq restaurants right on the water to test, and some nice walks if you can leave the water or the balcony. Book early as we were told that often it books out a year in advance for peak periods - cannot recommend more highly. Ensure that you ask for the absolute sea view room. We did enjoy doing a few nights also in Hvar town for the nightlife and restaurants first and would recommend coming to Milne for a purely relaxing few days in the sun (and not to leave the small village).

Room Tip: Sea view room is perfect for enjoying sun sets, reading on the balcony in the shade during the midda...
