Stari Grad Gem
Fantastic resort with spacious, clean, quiet rooms. Beach area is nice with a shower. Free extensive breakfast and 25 Euro voucher per person per day for food and drinks. Staff was polite and helpful. Only complaint is that they charge guests extra for umbrellas and chairs on the resort property on their own beach. That wasn’t cool.

Scenic, stylish and great value for money
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and can’t recommend it highly enough. We travelled as two couples in our thirties and found many other guests were a similar age profile to us. The hotel itself was is very stylish - perfect for those Instagram shots! It’s set in a great location, about a 15-20 minute walk into quaint Stari Grad and right on edge of the sea, so you can easily jump in and cool off. Stari Grad is a lovely town and we explored there a couple of evenings and had some lovely meals. I’ve stayed in Hvar town before and this is definitely more chilled and suitable for families. The food at the hotel was great. Loads of choice at breakfast and we were very impressed you could help yourself to sparkling wine! The flexi-board option worked well and we found there was plenty of choice. Each afternoon there was a DJ by the pool which is in keeping with the vibe of the hotel but in the afternoons we found the bass a bit heavy. It would be great to have a bit more of a chilled vibe for the afternoons by the pool. The staff were all great. We found check in/out a little time consuming, especially when checking out with additional charges for food and drink to the room. Overall this is a great hotel and with the flexi credit, we felt it was really good value for money.

All over very impressed with this fabulous new hotel! Pool and garden lounging is amazing - even three hot tubs for you to use! Breakfast buffet is great huge selection. The cocktails were a real highlight! Dinner is a bit disappointing, it’s self service and can get very hectic on a busy night and sometimes you can wait for 20 mins standing to be served then a 30-60 minutes waiting to collect your food. Ruins the feeling of dining out to be honest - more like a fast food restaurant. Food was ok near enough the same menu every night. Hotel is expanding and a lot of building work surrounding the hotel but we never even noticed until you walk down the coastal path towards town (which takes about 10-15 mins). We thoroughly enjoyed hiring one of the kayaks and kayaking to Vaiana beach for lunch. Staff very friendly and helpful and we even decided to book an extra night!

8/10 Very good

We liked it!
Rooms were functional but comfortable, although paid for a "superior" size room it was still on the small side. We had the half board flexi package which we could use for eating lunch/dinner & for drinks, which we liked. Breakfast was excellent. Lovely pool area and access to the beach, liked the location 15 minute walk to Stari Grad, or hotel boat taxi.
