I requested a deluxe superior room and it was large, hip, and modern with a big balcony overlooking the descending patios of the hotel, trees and mediterranean ocean. They have a large breakfast buffet in the mornings, with a charming staff who will make lattes or whatever is requested. You can dine on the large balcony outside of the glass-walled dining room or down on the lower areas nestled amongst the trees.
Hvar Island is all about Where are you Going to Sunbathe? Like most of Croatia, it is a rocky coast and each hotel has its own beach vibe... Podstine is about the last one on the row from town... to me this was ideal, because no one is walking through. Others might prefer the loud resort vibe of Amfora. For me, the Podstine was divine, with a lovely deck and walkway built out into the rocks in the ocean... and the usual ladder descent into the water for swimming. It absolutely does not matter that it is a 15-20 minute walk from town because you only go into town maybe once or twice a day for shopping, dinner, partying... most of the time you want to lounge by your sunbed and relax into the mediterranean vibe. The town is very small anyway. You can also mix it up by going to the hipster little bar which is the next establishment toward town and feel like an expat in the top secret spot, or hang out with the muscle builders and 20-somethings at Bubba Gumps daily rental sunbeds.
Podstine had a piano player on one night and a sophisticated live jazz band another night with dinner on the patio. I was travelling alone and felt very comfortable here. It seemed peaceful and the staff was superb and really helped me in finding my lost phone. It's a more sophisticated place and very relaxing.
They will pick you up from the ferry.
