“Peaceful retreat, gracious hospitality, delicious food”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

My husband and I have just returned to England after discovering Pension Tonci. From the moment we arrived we felt at home: Perina's charming driftwood art, fish-mosaic stone paths and beautifully designed garden seduced us immediately. These were matched by the warm and gracious welcome we received from both Perina and Thorkil. Every day we feasted on freshly-caught fish, home-made organic bread, vegetables and olive oil harvested from the garden, eggs from the hens and white wine from the Pension's vineyard. Not forgetting the best home-made limoncello liqueur you will ever taste! There are no roads, no cars, just the sun and the moon and the beautiful clear sea. Perina's family have lived on this island for generations, and her father Tonci still fishes for the guests. If you care about the environment and want space, tranquility and quiet, along with some great conversations over the dinner table, this is the place to be. If you want air conditioning and power showers, go elsewhere. Pension Tonci is a real, authentic place to enjoy. The reason I have only given 4 stars is because the mosquitoes ate the other star: a salutary reminder that we share the planet.

Against: because of distant location and parking difficulties, travel by car is not always the best option (transportation to Split by airplane and from there on with a catamaran recommended), poorer sound insulation of rooms, limited consumption of water, too few moorings for boats, quite demanding conditions for hiking around the island, low quality standards of rent-a-boat companies in port of Hvar.

For: romantic atmosphere & great hosts - tradition and hospitality at its best! Exceptional sea water, clean rooms & regular change of towels, excellent cuisine (local ingredients only, fresh wild fish, homemade olive oil & wine, premium homemade aperitifs & digestives, etc), free transportation from Hvar to the island and back arranged by hosts, free wi-fi, many opportunities to enjoy the secluded beaches,
Great value for money!

This was the second time my partner and I have been to Sv. Klement...but I would return time and time again if it was to stay at Pension Tonci. The hosts Thorkild and Perina were amazingly friendly, the food was delicious and the home made wine, olive oil and freshly caught fish for dinner were out of this world.

If you want to escape from the world for a while, Pension Tonci is the place to do it. Only problem is you just may not want to leave :) !

We hope to return next year!!

Room Tip: All the rooms are beautiful!!

We had a great stay at Tonci and enjoyed the home cooked food freshly harvested from the garden and fish from the sea. I even went one morning with Tonci to get the fishing nets in and caught my own dinner. All have been really nice ther, especially Thorkil and Perina who were the perfect hosts. There are plenty of beutiful hidden coves in walking distance where you normlly dont see anybody.

You have to try the home made wine, olive oil and Limoncello... Amazing stuff!

All in all it was the perfect place to relax and unwind, so nothing for the party people...

We will come back!!
