About Croatia Hotel
The Hotel Croatia is located in the town of Hvar, just 10-15 minutes walk from the old centre and the harbour. It is situated looking down to the sea in a beautiful garden of pine trees in one of the most beautiful locations on Hvar - Majerovica bay. It was originally built in 1936 and then reconstructed in the late 1990s; rooms were also upgraded in 2012 & 2015. The Hotel Croatia is a family-run hotel.
Accommodation: there are 22 double rooms with the possibility of adding the third bed, most of which are overlooking the sea. There are also 6 family rooms (family rooms contain 1 double and 1 twin in separate rooms with one bathroom). Central heating is in all rooms, so the hotel can be opened throughout the year. All rooms are equipped with bathroom/toilet, hairdryer, telephone, satellite TV, heating and air conditioning. Approximately half of rooms have a balcony which can be requested at no extra cost if available.
Facilities: on the ground floor of the hotel there is a restaurant where breakfast, lunch and dinner are served. On the small terrace with a view over to the Pakleni islands, drinks and meals are served. Orders of various excellent meat and fish dishes can be made 'a la carte' all day, with premium Dalmatian and other wines. For the guests on half-board there is breakfast-buffet, salad-buffet and 4 menus for dinner. All food is controlled origin, i.e. from local producers. There is also a gym and sauna on teh ground floor which is free for guests to use.
There is parking in the garden at the Hotel Croatia, access to the hotel is via the back road which passes around the ancient castle. The garden is very pleasant and relaxing and a gentle path takes you down to the sea giving you a real feeling of staying in a 1930s villa which could at any time come to life in the plot of an Agatha Christie novel.
"This hotel rests on its location and from the outside the grounds etc and location beautiful. But that's where it ended. Room was tired, dated and bathroom/shower very poor. The restaurant was run by one waiter who struggled to keep everyone happy and food poor. The breakfast was supposed to start at eight and on our departure date we were there with others at eight only to find a lot of it had not even been put out. Again only 1 girl to oversee it all. I had laundry done which was returned still very damp and poorly ironed which meant putting it in the car to dry off as the air con was keeping the room cool. I did complain about it and the food and was offered a reduction. "

"Wow what an amazing holiday. Great service everywhere and everyone very helpful Excited to get an upgraded vehicle to boot. No issues at all. Maybe could have known that the resort in the National Park took only cash and wanted Euros in particular. The food was really outstanding in all places and the tiny room in Trogir was quite acceptable as the weather was fantastic. Thank you Andy for such excellent service around all of your detailed work before and your help with the Croatia Air missed flight due to weather. The transfer men were lovely and helpful."

"The Croatia was, frankly, tired and in need of an update of its bathrooms, which rather spoiled the ambience, although it was in a great location. "

"The entire holiday was wonderful, more than we had imagined. Croatia is a very beautiful country. Every town/city we visited was a picture postcard. One of our memorable events was taking the ferry from Trogir to the small island of Drvenik Veli. After walking in the sun for 1 hour to a fish restaurant we came to the end of the road and a small building which turned out to be a private residence. We had walked in the wrong direction. The owner of the home turned out to be a journalist from Germany. We had a great visit with her, swam in the Adriatic at her private beach and then she drove us to the restaurant that would have been a 2 hour walk in the sun. It was a great afternoon, wonderful food and interesting company. Don't hesitate to visit the smaller islands on day trips. Learn about the history of each place through walking tours. Relax and enjoy the coast and swimming in the Adriatic. The island of Mljet is definitely worth a visit. We talked to many local people and bought their goods, such as fresh figs, sugared almonds and homemade Grappa. We also went to Konoba restaurants wherever we could to support family businesses. Excellent. We highly recommend this type of holiday to anyone travelling to Croatia. Driving is easy. Don't hesitate to do it. It is breath taking to drive along the coast."

"Received excellent service and advice from Andy and Dawn Scase at Rediscover the World on this trip. You may quote us! Any queries we made from Australia to Andy and Dawn in England were answered promptly and efficiently. Able to fit in an extra person at short notice. Trip advice on sites, hotels, detours etc resulted in a well paced and rewarding experience in Croatia."

"Hotel Croatia, Hvar: some of the staff were lovely, but there were some who were somewhat unwelcoming & unhelpful. Also, the communal areas of the hotel were fabulous, but the bedrooms (we had to be moved, so we experienced two) were sorely in need of updating. Loved the location and the setting."

"A short note to thank you for helping organise our holiday. We had a great time and thought Croatia was fantastic. Having good weather obviously helps and for us it was superb with the temperatures ideal ? mid to high 20?s. I think we went for one too many changes of hotel on the ?touring? section ie we should have spent an extra day probably in Hvar and possibly Zadar. The car hire was excellent and worked very well for the pick-up and drop-off. The hotels you arranged for us worked out well and, overall, we were pleased with them; perhaps the Marco Polo was a little disappointing but that was more to do with lugging our heavy cases around to the room than the actual quality."
