I have never been treated so badly in such a "nice" bar. We sat down with our drinks but were told to move as the tables were reserved for table service. The staff behind the bar were rude. We also noted that there was another Carpe Diem on an Island which was promoting it's very first "opening night". It's the oldest trick in the book. We didn't bother going and the next day we heard it had been dead anyway. We were also told by a local that they were certain that it hadn't been the opening night and they say that every week to trick tourists into going. Don't be fooled! Worst place ever!

Have just recently come back from a trip to Hvar Island in Croatia, Hvar is a beautiful stunning place and we were recommended that Carpe Diem bar was the place to be. It's got a nice chic facade, but the service is atrocious. Bartenders were slow with drinks and didn't keep track of which clients had paid for what. In a mix up we ended up paying twice for our drinks, and after we asked to get our money back for the second payment, the female bartender working there lied completely and said we hadn't paid at all and convinced the other staff to get us barred from the place. Will definitely not be returning, it looks very nice from the outside, but the staff in three words are pretentious, unfriendly and cheating.

Went to Croatia last summer with a bunch of friends for a month and travelled all over, and this was definitely our favorite bar and club we went to. Admittedly it’s quite expensive compared to the rest of Croatia, but it still doesn’t make it expensive compared to England. At 2am when the bar closes, there are taxi boats over to Carpe Diem Island, which was so cool, a small island with nothing but this club on it. Slightly pretentious but definitely worth it.

admittedly higher priced than probably every other venue in these islands, but great fun, good vibe, good music and nice action

ps bring some good shoes, as there's no sandy beaches here.. its all pebbles (imported) and rocks

pps the night-time parties (Whereby you jump on the taxi service outside the Carpe Diem bar-club at 01h30 inthe morning) are legendary - but dress well.. they like a bit of 'chic' here in Croatia

we went down to Croatia - for a long weekend and had the best time ever at Carpe Diem in Hvar. Tasty cocktails - nice service and best of all the new beach club at Stipanska island - looking forward to go back soon...
