The front of the hotel does not do justice to the splendour of the view as you walk through to the rear. There are several layered terraces, all with comfortable seating, overlooking the sea. Lush palm trees and greenery provide shade in the hot summer months. Sun beds & 'beanies' are provided on the lower terrace, which acts as a private beach - ladders lead down to the sea.
The staff were friendly and courteous, in particular the two waiters - Deda & Dado. As it was the start of season, there were not many guests, but we were treated like royalty. Food was excellent, particularly the five-course dinners which were provided to half-board guests.
The hotel was spotlessly clean and very quiet. There was a small outdoor pool, but we did not use it as the water was too cold at the time, as was the sea.
We had a room with balcony facing the sea - the view was amazing. The only minus point was our shower - only 50 litres of hot water and not enough for two people bathing one after the other (at least 30-40 mins to reheat water).
Hvar town is about 30 minutes stroll from the hotel.
Visit Stari Grad - a small, pretty, village on the island - lots of Roman history. Also Palmizana island.
We were told that the best time of year to visit Croatia is September, as the sea is warm and there are not many tourists.
