Amfora Hvar Grand Beach Resort
Ranked #5 of 16 Hotels in Hvar
Reviewed 31 October 2013

The location of this hotel is excellent. The view of the islands is magical. The pool area is impressive. The beautiful walk along the water to town is very easy and convenient to get to shops, restaurants, etc. Hvar is a very wonderful destination. We just loved it.

Cons: People who design rooms should have to stay in them for a week or two. The room is very small -- not the big complaint. The worst part is the bathroom. The toilet is square and flat -- very uncomfortable. The mirror is on the side instead of in front. The door to the bathroom is horrible -- very hard to open and close. The closet doors are also a challenge -- easy to open but hard to close.

Interesting fact: The bottles of water in the room are an extra charge, but the condoms are free -- really.

This is one of the more modern fully featured hotels in Hvar. It is not right on the harbour but a nice walk along the seawall gets you there. Somewhat popular with tour groups, which has its drawbacks, it is nonetheless able to offer a reasonable stay at a reasonable price. The pool(s) area is quite spectacular. We were there near the end of the season so some of the other amenities were closed (spa, beach club, boat trips and the like). Room was good, bed good, bathroom toilet seat just plain weird (like an old outhouse!), shower fine. Although only 5 years old, there are areas in need of replacing/upgrading.

Room Tip: If you plan to spend much time in your room, pay the extra for the sea view!

This huge hotel is well situated on Hvar with a good pool, view, beach in front and short walk to town. It was probably the best choice from those around and it is a good choice if you are looking for anonymity as once you have checked in their is little contact with staff. We had to wear ear plugs each night and even then the loud music could be heard from a conference one night and a wedding another. Plus you hear every footstep and suitcase being wheeled past the room. The music went until 4am! and the hotel basically showed no concern for other guests.

A sprawling white modern white hotel, outside of town with splendid views from many rooms, but the updated chic design lacks function, especially in the bathroom. Pocket door smashes fingers and toilet is contemporary take on medieval design without comfort and heavy lid that slams down dangerously. Dining room and lobby need a designer with a sense of color and taste. The views are the best part of this too large hotel.

We absolutely loved our stay at the Amfora Resort on Hvar. The room was beautiful, slick and modern and had everything we needed. The view from the room was stunning, watching a sunset from our balcony was worth every penny to stay here. Not only that but the pool is fun and gorgeous and the beach is only steps away. We were only able to stay here one night but we wished we could have stayed longer, it was truly a fantastic stay. The location was also super, with a nice romantic seaside walk into town. Just ten minutes or less, which is virtually the same as all the other hotels/guest houses, but you don't have to hike up any steep hills. Also have to put in a special mention that the breakfast buffet was delicious and massive - they had everything! We would LOVE to stay here again!! I highly recommend this hotel for your stay on Hvar, it was one of the highlights of our entire trip in Croatia!

Room Tip: If you're going to splurge for the Amfora, you absolutely MUST get a sea view, it's the best...

This was a great stay and I really enjoyed my 2 days in Hvar. The hotel itself is several stories spread out horizontally. (So you may have a long walk to your room.) The restaurant had some great food for the breakfast and dinner buffets. Since it was on the top floor, it also had a great view of the pool and the sea below it. If you take the elevator or stairs to the bottom level, you can walk right out to the pool which is amazing. A few steps further is the beach and the town of Hvar is a 10 minute walk along the path by the beach. It's great to be able to walk into town and then have a quiet resort a short walk away. Lastly, the bathroom was one of the most unique, stylized I've seen. It was a square, the toiled was tucked in under a shelf so to speak and the shower had one of those great rain shower heads.

The hotel is very modern and filled with services and quality staff. The views from all the rooms are spectacular. This has to be the place where all the see and be seen people come to. Food was terrific and reasonably priced. The pool has several areas and even a lap pool in the salt water. The steps can be daunting for anyone who is not ready to climb and is horribly inaccessible for those with disabilities. But it is a special hotel. Too bad future guests will miss the special toilet seats; ask about them.

Room Tip: Seems like very few rooms are missing a spectacular view of the Adriatic.
