I can barely pick fault with this hotel as everything about it will meet you expectations. The reception/lobby area is very nice and modern and check-in was really efficient. Our room wasn't quite ready as we arrived earlier than we were supposed to so we went to the pool area and ate lunch in the Cascades restaurant which was again very nice.
When our room was ready, the cases were brought up to the room. The rooms are, as mentioned in other reviews, a bit pokey but they're really stylish and have everything you need for a comfortable stay. I recommend paying a little extra for a sea-view as the 'park' view is more a 'car-park' view.
The pool area is lovely but like most hotels, sun loungers are hard to get unless you reserve them with you pool towel. You get your pool towels with a pool card given to you on check-in and this must be returned at the end of your stay otherwise you have to pay for the towels.
The private beach, Bonj Les Bains, is very chic with stone cabanas etc. and they even come round with watermelon after lunch which is very refreshing! The sun loungers at Bonj were included in our room but I think it would be quite expensive if it wasn't.
The hotel restaurant has excellent view. Breakfast has everything you would want and I would recommend having the buffet for dinner as there is plenty of choice and costs 22 euros which is excellent value compared with some of the restaurants in Hvar Town (the nicest restaurant we found there was Luna so I would recommend asking the concierge about that one!).
We also liked the fact that the Amfora was part of the chain, Suncani Hvar Hotels, which meant you could get a 10% discount in any of the other hotels on the island. The Riva and The Adriana are both very nice.
The staff are very friendly and obliging which made a change from the other restaurants we went to in Hvar town where service was slow.
Overall, I thought the hotel was fantastic and I will recommend staying here and Hvar to all my friends!

The ice-cream stall between the hotel and Bonj sells the best ice-cream for around 80p (7 Kuna) each!
Take jelly shoes for the sea as it is rocky and there are lots of sea-urchins
Hire a boat from the stall opposite the ice-cream to go around the Pakleni islands
Pre-Book the Jadrolinja ferry as tickets sell out
Hvar is beautiful!
