I really enjoyed staying here but I wouldn't recommend it if you like more than basic facilities.
If you're happy for basic but clean facilities then I wouldn't stay anywhere else on Hvar. The owner Luka is what really makes this place special. He can't do enough to make sure that your stay on Hvar is enjoyable as possible. One of the nights he stayed he organised a BBQ of locally caught fresh fish and it tasted fantastic. He collected us from the ferry port and took us back when we were leaving. His recommendations of what to do and where to eat were great.
The room we have was shared between 4 of us - we were travelling together. There were 4 single beds in the room which meant there was little room for anything else but it was all we needed. The bathroom was right next to our room so no problem there either. The kitchen facilities were outside which was fine as it was good weather when we were there but would't have been that enjoyable if we had had bad weather.
I would definately go back.

Since I typed yesterday's blog, I'm back where I should be. It must be the island life, as now I'm at Hvar Island. Or it could be the weather, which has improved from cloudy to sunny skies. Or it could be that I had my own bedroom and bathroom last night. Sometimes it's the little things in life... In the morning I took a wonder around the …
... we took the boost. We got to the top and all hopped on the bikes for the next section which was still some hills, so certainly not easy...but not all up either. We had also been told that there was another part of the route that was very difficult and many chose the boost here as well. Ken, again chose to give it a go. In the van we were all even more happy when we saw the huge hills that kept going up and up. ...
... to be also trying to get back had some wise words to the captains.
Back on the boat to bed we were all expecting to see the guys the next day at our next destination as they had been talking themselves up about how much of a huge night they were intending to have. They instead decided to wake everyone in the marina up a few hours later by bringing some annoying drunk girls onto our boat. We later found out two of them ended up being tackled into a cactus bush.
After Simon went for his run the boat sailed for Hvar. We stopped for a swim mid-morning and were going to stop in the afternoon but the wind had come up so the Captain just headed for Hvar. The dock in Hvar is very small so we were dropped off and the boat went back in the harbour. It returned at 5pm and ended up being boat #3 in a line of 8!
We had a walking tour which ended with the guide talking about her family's lavender farm.

... of old mosques and was once a very important city in the Byzantine Empire. More recently, Mostar was devastated by the War for Independence between 1991-1995 and you can still see buildings with machine gun bullet holes all over them. A gorgeous old bridge dating back over hundreds of years was also blown up in the war but has now been rebuilt. Travelling to these places makes you realise just how lucky we are to live ...
