Decompress from the bustle of Croatia’s Dalmatian Coast at the boutique Hotel Adriana on the picturesque island of Hvar. With just 59 airy rooms and an envious spot fronting the harbor, the ambience is intimate and the focus is on water-based relaxation. From the Sensori spa, with its hydrotherapy circuit and marine-inspired treatments such as the healing sea mud wrap, to the rooftop saltwater pool with jaw-on-the-floor views, this divine hotel doesn’t disappoint. Guestrooms have natural hardwood floors, white linens with lavender bed runners and orange throw pillows and offer views of the old city or harbor. But with a see-and-be-seen beach club set in a revamped 1930s colonnaded building, a chill rooftop bar and a trendy restaurant, you won’t spend much time in your room.
In the Area
Continue the marine theme by poking around in the island’s hidden coves and secluded bays, then hop on a water taxi for a 30-minute ride to the Paklina Islands, with their beautiful beaches and liberal clothing policy (as in, birthday suits welcome.) Back on Hvar, remnants of the town’s medieval past are everywhere, including the impressive Cathedral of St. Stjepana, which houses a four-story bell tower and ornate organ pipes. Ascend the stairs to rooftop restaurant Luna to sample simple-yet-sublime dishes like grilled calamari.
How to Get There
Excellent location and lovely views of the harbour. A lovely swimming pool, although it is indoor. Excellent Spa facility. Some rooms are outstanding, others quite ordinary. We had a suite which was superb, our kids had a twin which was average. Excellent breakfast menu but service can be quite hit and miss, at times they didn't seem to have enough staff to cope. A bit more attention to detail and some extra staff and I'd have given five a 5 star rating, its not far off....
It took around 1 h 30 for our food to arrive and had to order drinks multiple times. Some staff were polite, others were entirely charmless.
We only had one course each and had to ask at the bar for snacks to keep us going.
It seemed as though the same was true for the other tables around us and some even left.
Spending more than 2 hours at a restaurant for one course and a coffee is beyond poor.
The food was good, but not worth risking the service.
We stayed in one of the penthouses on the fourth floor. The room was gorgeous, interior was very modern, but the view was the best part!
Staff at frontdesk was extremely helpful and very friendly.
I would highly recommend this hotel and I’m looking forward to coming back in future.
This would have been a 5 star review but for two matters. Firstly a member of staff came into our room unannounced one morning. Secondly they use the room keys to charge for items. All room keys look the same and are credit card size. Two items on our bill were not ours. The signature was of someone else entirely. Not the best start at 7 A.M. in the morning. Other than that the hotel is excellent although the rooms are small. Great breakfasts and good staff. Fabulous views from the Top Bar. Great pool and sundeck.
This was my favorite hotel of our Croatia trip. The staff is super friendly and helpful. The views of the harbor are great. The rooms nice. The pool is fantastic. The included breakfast delicious.
The few complaints I had were minor. The rooms are a touch small. The rooms and hallways were a bit less bright than I'd personally prefer. The hall lights also had an almost imperceptible strobe. The shower had a glass door visible from the room entry, so not a good option if you are sharing the room with someone you're not close with.
I'd give it 4.5 bubbles if I had the option. I'm giving it five, because it was great, and the best hotel of the trip.
