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.
"- just one comment about the Hotel Croatia (Hvar) - good position and hotel rooms good but please could the staff manage a few manners or even a smile would be good. Compared to the other hotels they really were not the best!!!"

"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."

"With respect to Hotel Croatia, we too had read the trip advisor reviews and were a little anxious in advance but I can honestly say it was a joy to stay in. I would go so far as to say that I would not have wanted to be anywhere else as the location is perfect, set in beautiful gardens, adjacent to the sea, a ten minute walk along the coast to town and run by great staff (far better that the 4-star Butlins look-alike next door). The hotel and outdoor areas had clearly been renovated over the winter (some rooms were still being decorated) so maybe this has helped although I never believe trip advisor reviews."

"Thank you for organising a brilliant holiday for us. We returned half an hour early on Easy Jet yesterday. The 5 hotels were excellent, car parking worked well and we were bowled over by Croatia in general. It's a shame so much of Zadar is pst ww2, but what an excellent hotel! Luxe in Split was a great choice, modern, chic and well positioned. We loved Trogir. Hvar was the highlight, once we mastered the kerb at the car park which was a story in itself! The drive across Hvar was great fun and the mountain road is brand new. The ferry q was 4 hours .... After Mali Ston, it will be a while before I can eat more mussels and oysters, but what a great evening we had. We drove thru Bosnia, as we had eaten our day in the ferry q, which was not an issue at all. Dubrovnik was sensational and the Bellevue great. Nice people, great food, lift to the beach, great swimming, friendly taxis. So superior to Portugal and Spain and the wines were delicious. Even the red."

"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."

"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."
