We enjoyed at this apartments. Spending four nights in Hvar and at this villa was to short period for us. Next year we are coming back to Hvar and we will spend more time there. All best about this place and whole town.

We had our wedding party in Hvar town in Hotel Park so we needed to find also some more apartments to accommodate our guests..
So we choose Villa Sandra for some family members after several apartments we saw around...
Villa Sandra is located few min walk from the old town, but our host Miha offered to pick our relatives up from bus station. This was very nice of him especially because our relatives are a bit older and this makes much help for them...
Anyhow apartment was excellent and it has also a balconies! Everything very clean and nice!
We recommend Villa Sandra for all those who are looking for nice apartment to stay in Hvar!

We booked the apartment (centre) and, on arriving in Hvar, followed the directions on the booking.com website which led us to the Villa Sandra apartments which are located up several flights of stairs. We were shown to an apartment, checked in by the owners (this included taking the details of our passports so they knew our names) and unpacked all our luggage. No questions were asked about which apartment we had booked.
At about 17.30 in the evening, the owners came to inform us that we were in the wrong apartment and that we had to move within the next half an hour. They said it was our fault that we had come to the wrong apartment and that we should have had an email telling us to phone when we arrived in Hvar. (The owner later admitted that his email to us had not been delivered), There were no apologies from the owners. They barely managed to load us and our luggage into a car to help us move.
The next day I tried to negotiate a reduction in the cost of the apartment with the owner but he again said the mix up was our fault and became aggressive saying that he would throw us out. Eventually he did agree to a reduction for cash payment.
When we tried to pay at the end of our stay, he would not take the cash payment and said that he would charge the full cost to our credit card. His wife then came on the phone and was even more rude than he was. When we arrived home, we checked with the credit card company how much had been charged and it was more than the apartment cost. We queried this with booking.com and he had added a transfer cost for moving us and an extra nights charge for arriving early at the wrong apartment! We eventually had the extra costs refunded thanks to help from booking.com. Beware of crossing this man. Do not trust him!!

As I were absent from Hvar till 16th of July I was in no personal or telefon contact with you. Here I do sincerly apologize for any inconvenience you may suffer during your stay from any member of our stuff which I honestly doubt.

We have never have to charge anybody for any damage in our apartments in 15 years of our business ! I was first time brought to situation to face considerable damage made during the stay. As I have no experience in dealing with departure without paying and without check out I decided to authorize your credit card after your departure ( authorize not charge ) for full booking amount and damage costs. After you leave in apartment there were inventoried bedding and inventoried mattresses which we have to replace.

And yes after consulting with Booking.com – we were warned about your bad reputation - we have on 23rd of July charged your credit card only for booking costs.

This was my seventh stay at Villa Sandra apartments in Hvar Town. It's a great value and location especially for a longer stay. They have all the amenities you'll need like mini kitchen, high-speed internet, AC, TV, bikes, parking (if with car) and laundry. 5 mins walk to any section of the center of town. Rooms are very clean and spacious. They have configurations for both small and larger parties. The owner's are very friendly/personable and they have given many great recommendations for beaches, excursions, and restaurants/bars. They can pick you up from bus station or port which is helpful if you have a lot of bags. Lastly, you can also pay by credit card which is very convenient.

I'm really surprised at the reviews of this place - we certainly didn't have that experience. On the plus side, the accommodation is clean and the owners picked us up from the town - the tourist info centre rang them for us. Although the woman who I guess is Sandra didn't speak to us at all on the way to the accommodation in the car which made us feel a bit awkward. However, they were kind enough to drop our luggage back in the town when we left which we were very grateful for. Our rooms though were extremely basic and we thought it was a bit run down - the doors to the balcony didn't lock and the shutters were broken. The towel rail fell off the wall, only half a shower curtain so the water went everywhere. Towels were provided but they were quite old and mismatched. No toiletries/soap provided in the bathroom. Very poor air con which only really kept the kitchen cool. The rooms were quite dark and the accommodation wasn't on a particularly nice street. When you entered the door to the stairs at the bottom there was an old battered camp bed there so not a good first impression. It felt like you were staying in a room in their house rather than an apartment (the entrance of their own house was full of junk when they opened the door with cats and cat food around- appreciate guests don't need to go in their but it didn't create a good impression) So.... I am confused as to why the reviews from others are so good! It also wasn't cheap at £125 a night!! Hvar is quite an expensive place so this is reflected in the room rates but we very much regret not spending more on a hotel which we could have got for around £200 a night. I would not recommend this accommodation.

Villa Sandra Hvar is about 5 minutes from the old time square, appartments are beautiful (mine has 2 balkonies), very clean, with towels and linen, small kitchen and pleasant furnitured. Even so close to the center of the place appartments are positioned in a quiet area, free wifi availible, owners are very helpful and friendly. Great value for your money almost in the center of the island which is very attractive on it´s own!

Sandra`s House was easy to find for me with a printed map for my reservation.It`s a little uphill from the action, but no more than five minutes walking.This situation guarantee silence and relax because is a residential area.The apartment was nice and very well laid.Very clean too and with everything necessary for a good time, even Sandra offer to lend a laptop if you don´t have one with yourself.She leaves at the ground floor, but the apartments have a different door and different bell.
