Location, location, location as they say! That's what probably drives the price up, that and the hotel facilities which are pretty good (spa, roof top terrace etc). At £300-ish (superior, sea view room) a night I would have expected more. Whilst not disappointed, expectations were not exceeded either .... a missed opportunity for a hotel claiming to be one of the Luxury Hotels of the World. Whilst probably exceptional for Croatia/Hvar, on an international scale it has a way to go before it competes hands down with other luxury hotels we've visited across Asia and more developed parts of Europe.
The rooms are very small and the service fine, but I wouldn't say we were overly delighted.
However the spa is excellent - we had 3 massages each when we were there and the therapists deserve praise when it comes to the quality of the treatments and their service attitude. There was also a waiter and a bell boy that both went out of their way to make us feel welcome but the surly Croatian service ethos still exists more broadly across the staff as we found in other parts of our stay ...
Overall, I would take advantage of the '4 nights for price of 3' offer as this helps drive overall cost down and therefore value-for-money equation up ... but I would say if you're a seasoned luxury hotel traveller you might be feeling a bit short changed by a lovely, but not exceptional overall stay.
