I loved this hotel.annot fault the resort type ambience, excellent swimming pools, nice rooms, reception, bars and restaurant. The buffet breakfast was excellent. It has a gym, needs attention, i dont think it is utilised much! The staff were all helpful, friendly and polite.
Major drawback the 15 minute walk to the main town, not too much of a drag, nice walk along the prom with wondeful seaviews, but just can't pop in for a coffee/meal! Taxi to the town is the long road route around the back of town, taxi drivers rip you off at 100kunas!!
Hvar is a beautiful island, yet very touristy, spoilt by loud bars andv nightclubs, mmm not the idyllic peaceful croatian island i was lead to believe, by day its ok.
Good tip at the Amfora hotel, get a room in the main building, not the bottom wing which ia a rabbit warren to find your way out.
all in all a good stay, i had 3 nights here but was ready to move on.

Room Tip: good hotel if you are wanting a resort to relax away from the noisy main town

Typical big unpersonal hotel.
Not realy good at anything in particular.
Good location front sea view.
15 min walk from city center. (not an issue)

Room Tip: If you like big american style hotels, overpriced with a big pool, then this is definetely your best...

I spend two weeks in Amfora during this summer.

It was absolutely amazing, The swimming pool was magnificent and a room with a sea view even better. My room was looking directly at the bay in front of the hotel.

Another thing I really liked is that it was a little bit out of town because in the night when you come back from party, you don't hear the music in your room.

Also a part of hotel, just few steps away is bonj les bains, a beautiful restaurant with a breathtaking view on Amfora bay. the food was amazing and service the best in Hvar.

Another thing I really liked is Cascade restaurant, right next to the pool, so I was able to spend whole day in/next to the pool.

I would highly recommend Amfora to anyone who comes in Hvar.

this is a great swimming resort, short walk into the town of Hvar. The hotel is nice, but our room was very small and without a view.

Amfora is the best hotel on the island, located in the picturesque Hvar Town. Croatia is fairly pricey compared to other Eastern European countries, and the Amfora Hvar is no exception, but it is still worth it.

Pool area is very nice, but water is very cold. Lots of sunbeds, swim up bar and poolside restaurant.

Main restaurant has stunning view of the islands for breakfast. Breakfast is standard European Buffet, but does not change ever! We stayed 6 nights, and it was the exact same thing every day. Quality is good, but we just got tired of it.

Rooms are super clean and super modern. As mentioned in other reviews there is a serious design floor with the shower screen, and the entire bathroom floor flooded each time we had a shower.

Hotel is located 5 minutes walk from the centre of town, which is a leisurely stroll along the waterfront, past lot's of restaurants.

Hotel also has a small pebble beach infront of it, which actually is surprisingly nice. It is not actually private as described on many hotel booking websites. Sunbeds can be rented there.

If arriving or departing Hvar Town on the catamaran, the hotel offers a free luggage transfer service, so you don't have to carry your bags the 500m to the port.

A great place for children and in a prime location.
Rooms, staff and swimming pool are fantastic like the town itself.
I highly recommend this place.
