Amfora Hvar Grand Beach Resort
Ranked #4 of 16 Hotels in Hvar
Reviewed 4 July 2014

I love everything about Amfora. The location is within walking distance from Hvar Town. It's quiet, peaceful and facing the beautiful Amfora Bay. Breakfast buffet was delicious with many selections. Breakfast room has an celing to floor glass windows with amazing view of the bay. The pool is large, beautiful, clean, and has water slide. Everynight we would walk to the town to have dinner. Hvar town is lovely. Food is amazing and reasonably price for the quality that we get. Lavender smell wafting in the air as we walked through the island. I love everything about Hvar and Amfora is a perfect hotel in terms of location and quality. Highly recommend this hotel.

We booked the Amfora the day before arrival and check in was flawless and staff helpful. The room was great, and huge, but about 5 minutes walk from reception and another 3 to the pool area. So assuming 4 trips to the room per day we were walking for about an hour! We asked for a different room and got one next to reception; again staff did their very best to accommodate. Both rooms lacked a sea view which was probably a function of booking late. Nevertheless the view was ok. Breakfast was good, although could have done with some more fresh fruit options. Pineapple was tinned one day (yuk).
One thing I did object to was the lady who stocked the minibar literally not taking no for an answer; one day she entered the room while I was on the toilet and the next she came in while my wife and I were both semi-naked, despite being yelled at to get out! Some retraining required. This was a small blot on an otherwise lovely stay.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a week during June, it's a lovely but very big hotel. Great location for hvar town.
Room was big and cleaned every day.
The pool was ok but FREEZING even during the really hot days, pool area also very cramped during busy times,
Breakfast was ok - if you like cold scrambled egg.
Overall a pleasant stay but very expensive, staff were ok but not 4* standards, almost felt like you were doing them a favour...

Superb hotel and worth every cent.The views are magnificent and the setting beautiful.
I loved the pool and facilities and thoroughly enjoyed the water slide.Well past pension age I went back several times and found it very exhilarating.
Breakfast was an experience all on its own and not to be missed.
The reception staff is professional per excellence and perfectly multilingual.
On a rainy day borrowing an umbrella was no hassle either.
Though no pianist myself that beautiful grand just has to be played and what a treat when one of the guests did an impromptu performance which he obviously enjoyed.
My double room was very spacious and well furnished.

All in all very impressive and highly recommended.

We stayed here for two nights on the beautiful island of Hvar. Our standard double room had a great view across the swimming pool to the bay beyond. The room had a super king size bit and had been recently refitted with lots of draw and wardrobe space. However the room was tiny and there wasn't much room for anything else. Had a nice balcony though.

The pool area is really good with lots of areas for sunbathing and relaxing. The common areas of the hotel are very spacious, and it has a gym of sorts - just a few exercise machines in a big room, with great views out to sea.

The breakfast was OK, but no more. Than that.

The staff were very kind, polite and helpful.

The one complaint I would have is that it is difficult to find your way around the hotel. It is spread around the hillside and must be two hundred metres from one end to the other. You arrive at the hotel and come in at the fourth floor. The room numbers are very confusing. The floor below the was the first floor (room numbers starting with a 1) and the ones below that where we were, starting with a two. If you wanted to get there using the elevator you needed to use two different ones, or use the gods lift to do it in one go - very odd.

We stayed for a week in early June, sea view room. Yes it was on the small side but nicely appointed & modern.The location of the hotel suited us perfectly.Easy 10 minute stroll into town yet far enough away from the noise which I am sure will be evident in the high season. Super breakfasts, lots of choice for the healthy and not so healthy eaters. Didn't dine here so can't comment on meals. If you are bad on your feet or lazy then the steps may not suit you. You can of course use the lifts but we loved the fact that it was a bit of a walk up and down, burned off some calories.

Plenty of sun beds when we went. Staff on the whole were friendly. Our friends booked a standard room and got a huge massive room (designed for disabled)!.. result

The only complaint was the sink tap design! Splashed all over the place. Gym not very well equipped but nice to jog round the coast.

Also we had dinner at the sister Hotel Adriana. Waited over an hour for main course.Steak was cold. Chef came out to argue when we didn't want to pay for it. Didn't get any apology which was why we were reluctant to pay for it. Don't bother dining here. Was our only bad experience of restaurants in Hvar, and on our last night !

So overall I would recommend this hotel... and over its pricier sister one.

Room Tip: Get a corner suite sea view if you can, much more roomier.

Beautiful hotel. Totally worth the money. We loved sitting on our balcony enjoying the view. The pool area is so beautiful. We saw Kiera Knightly here during our trip so you know it must be good! Wanted to make a special note about the staff. Everyone was friendly and helpful but we are especially thankful to Petra. My luggage was lost for 4 days and she went out of her way to help me find it. It finally got to me thanks to her!

Thank you Petra! Do stay at this hotel, it will make Hvar even better!
