“Beautiful”
Reviewed October 21, 2013

This was a great stay and I really enjoyed my 2 days in Hvar. The hotel itself is several stories spread out horizontally. (So you may have a long walk to your room.) The restaurant had some great food for the breakfast and dinner buffets. Since it was on the top floor, it also had a great view of the pool and the sea below it. If you take the elevator or stairs to the bottom level, you can walk right out to the pool which is amazing. A few steps further is the beach and the town of Hvar is a 10 minute walk along the path by the beach. It's great to be able to walk into town and then have a quiet resort a short walk away. Lastly, the bathroom was one of the most unique, stylized I've seen. It was a square, the toiled was tucked in under a shelf so to speak and the shower had one of those great rain shower heads.

The hotel is very modern and filled with services and quality staff. The views from all the rooms are spectacular. This has to be the place where all the see and be seen people come to. Food was terrific and reasonably priced. The pool has several areas and even a lap pool in the salt water. The steps can be daunting for anyone who is not ready to climb and is horribly inaccessible for those with disabilities. But it is a special hotel. Too bad future guests will miss the special toilet seats; ask about them.

Room Tip: Seems like very few rooms are missing a spectacular view of the Adriatic.

I am so happy we stayed here, the room was clean and comfortable, the balcony was a bonus.View is excetional.
The breakfast was excellent, more than you could possible eat and the view from the hotel is amazing, breathtaking even and many people were taking photos of the view while we were there. Did I mention the view???ool is huge, the poolside service was wonderful and there are many seats to choose from around the pool.

It's well located, about 8 to 10 minutes easy walk from town but that is good as there is no noise to contend with. Just lovely and I would stay here again for sure.

Stayed here for 3 nights during my honeymoon. Paid about $330 per night! But had a nice room (although had a street view from our balcony - no big deal though). Hotel delivered complimentary desserts to our room upon check in (for our honeymoon). They were delicious. We spent most of our time at the huge pool. Great swim up bar. Friendly bartenders if you start up a conversation. Hotel is in a great location - about a 5 minute walk to town center for dinners. Good complimentary breakfast.

Checked in late at night with no reservation. Was given a pretty good deal on a room in what I'm sure is a very expensive hotel in high season. Room was small but modern and funky. Bedding was lovely but beds small and pretty hard. Bathroom had a great rain shower but the door to the shower was too small so water sort of sprayed everywhere. Toilet was trying too hard to be cool, looks like an outhouse and is rather uncomfortable! Door to the bathroom is a pocket door which is quite loud and the light from the bathroom is too bright in the bedroom in the middle of the night due to the smoked glass wall. Breakfast was included and is a huge spread in a room with an amazing view of the cove and pool. Really good food. Nice short walk along a trail to the main harbour. Pool is great and there is beach access as well. Very nice spot, but get a bigger room!

We came to this hotel as a result of upgrade from another hotel. What a lucky day. Fantastic views, comfortable beds, nice room, great pool area. They also had a good buffet for €19. Breakfast was also nice. The location was grea, just a short stroll to city centre through a park. Highly recommended.

We arrived to Hvar as part of our honeymoon trip to Croatia - having been told by our agent that the Amfora was going to be the real gem of all our hotels.

On check in there were two customers at the counter 1. complaining that the light was fixed but something else was still broken, 2. complaint about the dirty room and wanted to move - not a great start.

We checked in and were brought to a lift at the back of the building - a rickety old service lift that would only fit two people and two small carry on bags. The 'superior' room was awful, tiny, dark a bit dated and with absolutely no view.
After about 45-1hour and viewing a room that was still not cleaned we got 'upgraded' to a suite - which I would have thought was the normal superior quality room that most European cities offer....the attitude of the man on the front desk was that he was 'doing us a favour'....awful.

Breakfast was fine - a good choice of foods, not amazing but nice.

The pool is the only thing you are paying the overinflated prices for - it's really lovely.

The spa is not in the hotel grounds but in the sister hotel 10-15min walk in the centre!!!

Service - SLOW!

I would not recommend this hotel to my worst enemy - stay in a s/c apartment instead. Hvar is beautiful, the Amfora is not. Top European prices but without the normal European quality and service!

Room Tip: Anything below a suite is basic. Ask and insist on a sea view
