I will start by saying that our time by the pool was quite relaxing, the breakfast was good, and the town of Hvar is charming. The hotel is as many other semi-negative reviews paint it: rooms are hit or miss, and its almost too complicated to try to explain the floor plan and combinations of up/down elevators and stairs to reach any given section. As long as you memorize the path to your room, you're fine. When we first arrived, I was upset with the "sea view" from our room (2108) - you could see the sea, but also a concrete path and the pool bar. An attempt to try to request a room higher up was met with "we're completely booked, sorry". I had booked 2 months in advance for my honeymoon, noted the same twice to the hotel requesting a higher floor room, but was given a room in the same block as the people checking in before and after me (saw them in the hallway regularly). After a few days I realized that we actually had one of the better rooms because it was far from reception (fewer people walking by it), and all that we're doing is sleeping there. Without sarcasm, I feel for the hotel mgmt, as the layout of the hotel is rather awkward and I'm sure guests are consistently less than pleased with either the view, the walk to the room, or the hallway noise of rooms close to reception.
In general, we made the most of it by the pool, which was nice enough indeed, but there are plenty of other "resorts" and locations at the same (or lower) price point in the Mediterranean and beyond that I would spend my money at.
