“Nice hotel and a WoW factor”
Reviewed April 9, 2014

The hotel is beautifully facing the sea, with nice pool and a private beach.

Design is modern and wi-fi is OK.

Breakfast choice is good, but could be better.

The hotel is not close to the pier, but walkable distance.

When I first stepped into this hotel, it looked hip to me and suddenly felt the "Wow" in my head when passing the pool to the entrance. It was as if I had entered into some kind of Hollywood movie setting.

Amenities in the bathroom are nice, minimal packaging to save the environment, and also good quality products inside.

It looks like that it is the only really large hotel of this class in the area, and I think it is a good place to stay. If the price is right, I wouldn't mind choosing to stay here again. Somehow when visiting such sun and beach island, I tend to favour the bigger hotels with more facilities so that I can have something to do on rainy days.

The amenities of this hotel has bumped up my rating from a three star to a four star. The Amfora has the best (and coldest) pool on Hvar, without a doubt. It's a brilliant place to relax next too, and if you get down early enough then you can grab one of the more private huts that are scattered around.

The room itself was small, and ours was a bit of a trek away from everything. There was also absolutely no view as we were around the side of the hotel, and it was also quite dark. But we didn't spend much time here, so didn't mind too much.

The staff were very friendly, and the buffet breakfast was very good. Dinner was a little expensive for what it was, but there are many fantastic restaurants just a short walk away.

I probably wouldn't stay here again, as the Amfora is a little on the expensive side, and there are many fantastic and cheap holiday rentals around the harbour and up the hill. But I would visit the pool for the day or the afternoon, and we had a wonderful time here.

Room Tip: Spend the extra money and go for an ocean view room. If you do get a 'garden view room' on...

This hotel is beautiful. The architecture is a bit old school, but the location, views of the water, pool, etc cannot be beat. We loved the location because it is around the bend from the main town but is only a 5 minute walk and the walk is fun and has stunning views along a tree-lined water-side pathway. We arrived early but were not only able to check-in early, but they also upgraded us to a next level room simply because we told them it was our honeymoon. The hotel was also great on the day we needed to depart from Hvar and take the ferry back to Split. The ferry schedule was messed up due to an electrical storm out in the sea, so the hotel organized free rides for everyone to the ferry station in place of having to pay for a taxi. This resort was recommended to us by our friends, and now we highly recommend it to all of you. We went in May so the prices weren't at peak, the weather was great, and the entire island fight private as if it were our own that time of the year.

We stayed at the Amfora hotel last May. The room we had was small but had a balcony with a fantastic view over the pool, harbour and onto the sea. The service poolside was good, although it did take a while to get drinks or food ordered. There was easy access to the main bar and restaurant areas in Havr town, just 15 mins walk away, although the food at the hotel was also worth trying. Rooms were cleaned well everyday and the staff were always happy to help, although they didnt always understand English. The toilet in the bathroom was a little challenging as they had opted for style over practicality and had benched over the toilet, so there was no seat.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Amfora in Hvar, not only due to the AMAZING location, which provide stunning views, but also due to the great amenities - vast grounds to wander, huge pool area, water slides, free breakfast, and pretty decent service at the main bar area. We did have an issue with our bathroom, which had a shower spout which was not attached, but we were not too surprised due to the reviews and vastness of the space. Another issue was lugging our bags up the stairs to our room, which we had to do on our own.

All in all, it was a decent stay, and for the views and pools I would stay here again, though probably pack a bit lighter!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view if you can get one...we saw an amazing sunset.

We loved our stay at the Amfora! Such great service and the rooms were clean and well decorated. The breakfast was epic (although they enjoy eating cake for breakfast….). They also have a good bar where we had one of the best burgers we ever had in Europe! They also know how to make good chips (amazing!). However, the traditional Croation food in the evening was not very good. Go into the city instead for a typical croatian dinner!
