“hidden gem around the bend”
Reviewed 2 March 2014

This hotel is beautiful. The architecture is a bit old school, but the location, views of the water, pool, etc cannot be beat. We loved the location because it is around the bend from the main town but is only a 5 minute walk and the walk is fun and has stunning views along a tree-lined water-side pathway. We arrived early but were not only able to check-in early, but they also upgraded us to a next level room simply because we told them it was our honeymoon. The hotel was also great on the day we needed to depart from Hvar and take the ferry back to Split. The ferry schedule was messed up due to an electrical storm out in the sea, so the hotel organized free rides for everyone to the ferry station in place of having to pay for a taxi. This resort was recommended to us by our friends, and now we highly recommend it to all of you. We went in May so the prices weren't at peak, the weather was great, and the entire island fight private as if it were our own that time of the year.

We stayed at the Amfora hotel last May. The room we had was small but had a balcony with a fantastic view over the pool, harbour and onto the sea. The service poolside was good, although it did take a while to get drinks or food ordered. There was easy access to the main bar and restaurant areas in Havr town, just 15 mins walk away, although the food at the hotel was also worth trying. Rooms were cleaned well everyday and the staff were always happy to help, although they didnt always understand English. The toilet in the bathroom was a little challenging as they had opted for style over practicality and had benched over the toilet, so there was no seat.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Amfora in Hvar, not only due to the AMAZING location, which provide stunning views, but also due to the great amenities - vast grounds to wander, huge pool area, water slides, free breakfast, and pretty decent service at the main bar area. We did have an issue with our bathroom, which had a shower spout which was not attached, but we were not too surprised due to the reviews and vastness of the space. Another issue was lugging our bags up the stairs to our room, which we had to do on our own.

All in all, it was a decent stay, and for the views and pools I would stay here again, though probably pack a bit lighter!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view if you can get one...we saw an amazing sunset.

We loved our stay at the Amfora! Such great service and the rooms were clean and well decorated. The breakfast was epic (although they enjoy eating cake for breakfast….). They also have a good bar where we had one of the best burgers we ever had in Europe! They also know how to make good chips (amazing!). However, the traditional Croation food in the evening was not very good. Go into the city instead for a typical croatian dinner!

Brilliant hotel, lovely staff, pools great for kids
Hvar itself has plenty to do with fabulous restaurants
If you go in May/June be prepared for the weather to turn on a sixpence glorious one minute bucketing down the next
We would certainly go again
But with better raincoats and bigger brollies!!
Food & drink so cheap it was a pleasure to agree to ice creams and treats without worrying about the bill

I had the opportunity to stay at the Amfora Hotel in Hvar in June 2013 while attending a 4 day long business meeting. The hotel itself is in a great location, with beautiful views of the Adriatic (I wish I could have enjoyed the surroundings a bit more!). The only aspect of the hotel that fell short was the food, it is decent, but not what I would expect.

In regards to nightlife - a must visit is "Carpe Diem", which is about a 10 minute walk from the hotel - the club is half outdoors, half indoors.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the sea are nice - however I had a suite that faced the hillside and that provided beau...
