How to Get There
This hotel is so good at lots of things...cleanliness, food, service.
It would be an improvement if you had someone to welcome the guests and assist them with there bags when ordering a private transfer from spilt which was organised by the hotel. We had to drag our bags from the port to the pool area and had to drag the bags up several steps in the heat of the day. It was such a bad first impression.
All in all though rooms are lovely and spacious, gym a little small but would definitely revisit. Although would not recommend private transfer, it’s really not worth it. The public catamaran is regular and so much cheaper
Many thanks for a lovely holiday
Amfora is the largest resort on Hvar. We were lost between many hotel choices and glad we ended up picking Amfora.
The location of the hotel is 10 min walk from the town. The hotel has a nice beach, gorgeous sunset view and a great breakfast.
The downsides of the hotel is that the rooms are small although. We had a dunolex room which was quite big but most rooms are generally small. The furniture is modern however the finishing wasn't great (shower leaks a lot, toilet seat was very weird and annoying, bad AC smell and sound).
I would still recommend the hotel and would stay there on my next visit. Probably will take a room with a sea view and the view is really something.
Finally, the hotel is great for families, couples and group of friends.
Staff were very friendly and helpful
Collect luggage to and from port service
Good breakfast choice
Away from the main areas where it would be noisy at night
rooms a bit small for the price you pay, but understand that all of hvar hotels are priced this way.
My 2 other girlfriends and I stayed at the Amfora for 4 days and had the best time there. We thought the resort was BEAUTIFUL between the views from the pool/restaurant of the pool and ocean. The rooms were nice and the bathroom/showers were very accommodating. The breakfast that was included in the morning was equally as good and had alot of things to choose from to satisfy whatever your typical breafkast need was. The pool area was good with a balance of families and people on the younger side. Everyone was polite for the most part and the swim up pool bar is always a plus!
Mixed views on this hotel, which is in a prime location facing the Pakleni islands and is only a short walk round the nice coastal path to the centre of Hvar Town.
On arrival by ferry we were warmly greeted by the guys from the hotel collecting the luggage and then delivering it back to the hotel whilst we walked there round the coastal path, which was a good start and a big help. Unfortunately the luggage took a long time to make its way back to the hotel which left us completely marooned for nearly an hour on arrival there !
The centrepiece of the hotel is the swimming pool complex. The pool itself at first glance looks dirty but this is actually due to little brown stones set into the floor of it – a very strange design and not really appealing to the eye at all. One of a number of instances throughout the hotel where you feel it is desperately in need of refurbishment.
Reception service was initially awful at check in on first arrival but improved dramatically with the next person we spoke to, albeit half an hour later. It did seem to vary considerably from excellent to indifferent depending on who you spoke to. The Concierge desk, however, was very good throughout and thanks to Ines for all her help.
The public areas for foyer/reception are open plan and look somewhat unattractive, dated and tired. The cocktail bar is at the edge of this area, which is not a good place for it and so it completely lacks ambience and atmosphere. The cocktails themselves, however, made by the excellent Ivan, were great !
We had a corner room with a bath in the room and, having seen other rooms, would recommend as it was much better than the standard rooms which were very small with really tiny bathrooms. Housekeeping was friendly and efficient.
The main problem with our room was that the corner of the base supporting the bath jutted out into the room (very bad design fault) and had not been properly maintained meaning it was jagged and dangerous. You often did not really see it walking across the room from sitting at the desk unless you were concentrating and I stubbed my toes badly twice on it, the second time causing a nasty injury. The hotel immediately repaired the dangerous plinth and were very apologetic but they offered nothing other than sympathy, which was a little surprising and much less than you might have thought was appropriate in the circumstances as my injury ruined the night when it occurred and meant I was very sore, limped badly and could not swim for the rest of the holiday !
Trying to contact the hotel management since regarding this issue has been impossible. They have ignored every email over 11 months and shown absolutely no interest or concern whatsoever in the problem I suffered. Shows a contemptuous disregard for their clients welfare.
