Hvar is a really amazing place! We have just had our wedding there. It was just wonderful! I would recommend it to anyone.
We had stayed at Amfora hotel before, so when we started thinking about our wedding, there was no other choice. It's a big hotel in a beautiful spot, with a nice pool and close to the beach. So we decided to stay there for 10 days together with the most of our guests. Overall, it was OK, however, we believe there is much to be improved. First of all, the people at the reception desk are not really helpful. The check-in process takes ages and there is generally a queue. When we asked for a late check-out from the room where the groom was getting ready, it appeared to be such a big deal... The receptionist had to talk to a manager to allow us to do it. Our wedding planner booked a suite for us for the night before the wedding and onwards, but somehow there was a mistake with the date on the booking and it took like 30 minutes to find a suite for us. It was almost a favour of some kind. It looked like the hotel maintenance budget had been impacted by the GFC. The suite we eventually got did not impress us. The couch looked terrible with watermarks all over and when we moved it, there was food, like popcorn, that was just disgusting... and it was my wedding day...
Another thing is the gym - or lack of. It's a bit of a joke actually... We strongly recommend the hotel management reorganize it. It's a huge space on the top floor, stunning view from the windows, etc. but... it's a terrible gym. There are just a couple of machines, lot of weights and no comfort what so ever. It was very disappointing.
Well, there was no "congratulations" from the hotel either... But it's fine, it was the greatest holiday and the happiest day of our life anyway! So if you think about going to Hvar, you definitely should. It's a great-great place! But considering value for money, you'd better rent an apartment.
