I stayed at hotel Vis during October 2-7, attending a conference in another hotel near by. Since the reviews are contradicting, I wasn't sure on what to expect, but everything was really good.
The first thing you have to bare in mind is that this is a 3 star hotel, so you cannot expect or demand amenities that you would find in 4-5 star hotels. Moreover, since this is a highly touristic area, you have to book early in order to get good room prices (or prices reflecting 3 star hotel).
The hotel itself is located in a bay, offering fantastic view and a semi-private pebbled beach. There is a pedestrian street near-by, with a variety of good restaurants and coffee shops.
The rooms are quite basic, with renovated bathrooms. They look a bit tired, but they were spotlessly clean (which I value more than a flat-screen tv), as the cleaning ladies did an excellent job all the days of my stay. The only thing I regretted, was that I booked a room with garden view (actually it was overseeing the parking lot), assuming it would be more quiet. Well it was, but the view from the sea-view rooms is breathtaking and, in addition, the sun was on my room for the whole day, forcing constant use of the AC. Go for a sea-view room!!!
As for the food, starting with breakfast, it was tasty but pretty basic and I really missed some baked cakes, but for a 3 star hotel it was more than enough. For lunch I went a couple of times at the bar above the beach, which I found a bit pricey for what it had to offer. But both the beach bar and the hotel bar offer amazing view at the bay in front of the hotel. Dinner was a pleasant surprise, since there was an open buffet, with a great variety of soups, salads, meat, seafood, pastry and fruit. Don't expect a fine dinning experience, but everything I tried was really well-cooked, tasty and fresh.
The staff was quite helpful and professional. Starting from the front desk, which were really helpful on a problem with my debit card, moving to the waiters at the restaurant that were attentative and discreet, to conclude to the servers at the hotel bar, who struggled to serve large groups of people every night.
Overall, it was a good experience, with respect to the price I got and the fact that this is a 3 star hotel. I would definitely return to hotel Vis when back in Dubrovnik...
