Official star rating:
Overlooking the wooden fishing boats in Hvar’s pretty harbour, just a two-minute walk from the main square, the Adriana is funky and fun. Appealing to the young and young-at-heart, its light and airy minimalist interiors open onto sea-view terraces.
The ground-floor Val Marina restaurant serves a generous buffet breakfast, followed by brunch, then grilled fish or steaks at dinner.
Up top, the Sensori Spa has a covered 25m saltwater swimming pool, and does sauna and beauty treatments, and massages in open-air cabanas. Also on the roof, The Top is a small cocktail bar serving drinks and light summery lunches.
The Adriana stands on Hvar’s seafront promenade, lined with bustling open-air cafés and restaurants, overlooking the fishing harbour.
Across the bay the magnificent main square offers more upmarket bars and restaurants. It’s a ten-minute walk to the ferry landing station.
The car-free old town is made up of centuries-old traditional Dalmatian stone buildings, with a pine-clad hill rising up behind the hotel.
