“Wonderful!”
Reviewed October 8, 2009

Great Resort Hotel - I think the only one in the area. The rooms were a little small but very clean, trendy. We got a great 3 for 2 night deal and were able to upgrade to a suite, which I highly recommend. they provided us with free champagne when realizing it was our honeymoon. the staff couldnt get out of their ways to help us enough. Only the concierge seemed slighty annoyed but still helped us find local dining places to eat each night. Great pool and poolside bars, erc.

The pool and beach area are beautiful and it is easy to spend the day happily lounging. As for the indoors, the rooms are mediocre with many form over substance issues like bathroom lighting that is dark by the mirror and so bright by the tub that it lights up the entire room. We had a very unfortunate experience where the entire hotel was taken over by a company conference. They even had a dance party until 12:30 for this conference with live music that made it impossible to sleep. Management clearly does not have the training or interest in being a hotel that focuses on customers. That being said, it is a really great location right near Hvar town that has outdoor amenities that out-do any other hotel on the island.

enormous hotel which seems to dominate the pretty bay, but once you are inside it seems more intimate. excellent sevice from eveyone and all super friendly. rooms are a bit on the small side with hard beds and pillows also glass doors on the bathrooms-yuk. but excellently clean and well appointed. food was good and great value.all the facillities you would expect of a large 4star hotel are here plus more. pool can get crowded so a 1 minute walk to the bay and £5 will get you a sunbed in peace and quiet in front of the hotel beach bar, of make your way 5 mins round the corner to the lovely tiki bar. hvar town is a 5 min pine scented walk .

The hotel is modern and has good rooms. The feature of the hotel is the pool area. If you are staying between Sept and June, there is no need to stay just to access the pool. For a small fee anyone is able to access the pool area so you can stay somewhere cheaper and still use the pool. It makes it challenging to get a banana lounge when backpackers are allowed in. The hotel staff are quite arrogant, particularly the male concierge and customer service is not at the level you would expect. They allow dogs in the hotel which is ridiculous.

We've just arrived from Amfora. We stayed 10 days in this beautiful hotel, we made 3000 photos with every single rock from hvar :)) The croatians are adorable, and Amfora is from far the best Resort from Hvar. In the night, the pool area is fantastic, Mate, the barman from the pool bar had became our friend during the stay, I've never felt so spoilt in my life. In town, Carpe Diem rulz. It is club where everybody dance and drink some spectacular coctails. Restaurants to go in town: Luna - very good food, Macondo, Paradise Garden. And the prices are very convenient.
Must do: - rent a boat all day and see the islands near hvar.
- scuba diving - Near Amfora ther is Viking, where you can do scuba whit a professional team.
- see Bol island and Green and Blue Cave.
- rafting and safari
- take a hot bubble bath in the room's tub after a long stay at the beach, wich is spectacular
- and lay back at the pool with a hawaian coctail made by Mate
Be aware of the hedgehoges in water. A friend of mine came home with a suvenir - some spines from one hedgehog :))))))) just to remember

Next year is Amfora again! We just love it! so.... maybe ....I'll see you there!

I stayed at the amfora hotel with my boyfriend for a few days and we had a blast. The rooms are small but gorgeous, the staff is helpful and the location of the hotel great. It is a little bit outside of hvar but one can reach town within walking distance. The breakfast buffet offers a great choice of food. There is a beach nearby where you can rent chairs for reasonable prices. The Bonj les Bains beach club nearby is stylish and attracts hot people from all over the world, but it is ridiculously expensive.
In general Hvar is beautiful. We didn't get out of Hvar town much, besides trips to the islands Stipanska and Jarolim (grab a boat at the harbour). We loved the food in every restaurant we went to. as soon as you get a little bit away from the harbour, the restaurants get much cheaper. we loved the restaurant near the amfora hotel, it offers great pizzas at very reasonable prices.

Having read the recent reviews of the Amfora I cannot recognise the comments made - this hotel is simply amazing!

We stepped off the catamaran from Split and were met by a minivan and friendly driver who book us and our luggage to reception. The check in guy was helpful and friendly and we gasped to see our room - all designer white gloss furniture, a wrap around balcony and romantic bath tub in the bedroom - awe inspiring! We chose garden view as the website pictures showed you got more space and features without a seaview/poolview and we chose well.

The pool was the best we'd ever seen with cool night lighting and loads of seats, a pool bar and poolside restaurant with little cabanas on the edge. We even tried the waterslide like a couple of kids, ha ha .

Breakfast was great with two identical halves of service areas so you didn't feel like you had 100s of other guests vying for food. They even got a good breakfast going the day the whole town suffered a powercut - very impressive

We just loved this place - a nice harbourfront 5-8 min walk into town and the best facilities we thought of all the sunichvar group hotels there. We could not believe it was only four star

The gym was enormous with great views over the harbour, again the best we've ever seen in a hotel

Hvar itself is amazing, with frequent ferries onto nearby islands and cool harbourfront bars and eateries to watch the world go by. Like St Tropez without the price tag! Croatia is stunning and Hvar was our favourite place by far, just loved it and already need to return!
