We spent a week at Labranda in late September and had a marvellous time. The setting is beautiful and the hotel is right by the sea, surrounded by pine trees, with a pebble beach, a pool and stunning views. We booked through Travel Zoo/Jetline Holidays and the deal was amazing, with flights, transfers & all-inclusive board for under £500 per person (a massage was also included from an expert masseuse - so relaxing!). The transfers were all arranged by Jetline/Meeting Point and it took about four hours from Split airport by shuttle bus, ferry then taxi. We loved the food and drinks, with meals served buffet style in the hotel's main restaurant, and drinks served in various bars by lovely staff including Joseph, Filip, Ivan and Robert. We enjoyed the themed food nights, especially the Dalmatian and Italian evenings (with delights like brudet, the Croatian fish stew, suckling pig and squid ink risotto; you can even make your own affogato with hazelnut icecream & espresso). There were also wood-fired pizzas available in the daytime from the terrace bar. One night we booked dinner at the terrace restaurant with its red & white check table-cloths & waiter service, just for a change. Also, we had quite a few amazing cocktails on the beach. We visited Diocletian's Palace in Split; Vrboska (20 mins walk from hotel) and the ancient city of Stari Grad (30 mins away by bus). We met some fun people and went clubbing at Carpe Diem, a nightclub on a little island near Hvar town where we bumped into the hotel manager! (Hvar is a 45 min taxi ride from the hotel, it opens at 12.15am and your 300 HRK ticket includes the water taxi to the little island.) Taxis from Slaven Dereh +385 91 534 0538 hvartransfer@gmail.com. Boat taxis & trips from Ivan +385 91 1353 315 (amazing speedboat!). Other tips: no need to bring a beach towel, they are provided; bring rubber-soled shoes if you aren't keen on pebbles. Our room was B214 with a lovely side view of the sea from the balcony; top floor, no lift. Lovely Angela from Reception arranged a packed lunch for our journey home. All in all, a fabulous holiday - we would love to return. Thank you everyone at Labranda.

Excellent food, friendly staff always willing and ready to help. It was a wonderful experience to stay in the Labranda Resort. Easy to book excursions and a lovely walk from the resort to Vbroska, which is a beautiful town.

Really enjoyed our recent stay at the resort. It was such a pleasant place to be, right on the rocky beach with so many places to sit or lie and relax. Maybe different in high season, of course, but not overly busy anywhere. Always beds, chairs, tables in the buffet. Staff were, in the main, lovely, great facilities, nice spa, international crowd with no idiots. Oh actually, there was one but he left after a couple of days. Hire a bike and ride to Vrboska, it's so cute. Then continue on to Jelsa. The scenery is stunning, the water turquoise and so clean. Boats come right to the resort to take you over to Bol, which is fab. Paddleboards to hire, normal and electric bikes, tennis, diving and loads more. The Italian restaurant down at the sandy beach was closed but that might have been a nice evening away from the buffet. Would definitely recommend.

I stayed at this resort for a week with a friend during the off season, so we did not get to experience all of the amenities the resort has to offer as certain things were closed. We still had a good experience there but wish we had known about the country’s off season prior to booking in order to better plan our trip. The majority of the staff we interacted with were great. There was one individual who didn’t seem to be happy dealing with guests, but I just chalked it up to a bad day for that person. Please be aware that there are no elevators, so to get to your room you will likely have to carry your luggage up some stairs. I was surprised they didn’t offer to help us with luggage at check in, but this may be due to being there in the off season. We stayed in a regular room, which had just enough space for two adults to comfortably stay in. All meals were at the buffet, which was ok. There was always something for me to eat, a lot to choose from, and seemed to be some variety in what they served. We were a little disappointed that there were no authentic Croatian meals offered though. The location is great if you do not care about being super close to Hvar town. This resort is in walking distance to Vrboska, which is a beautiful village to walk around. There is also bike/scooter/quad rentals and a bus stop in Vrboska if you want to explore further away. Overall I am happy with my stay, especially for the deal we got and would be very curious to see how different it is when it’s not the off season.

Does exactly what it promises - spectacular location, friendly staff, food is plentiful with lots of hot and cold buffet options for all three meals. Can't complain about much when food and drink is included! Danilo and Damiano were great on the beach bar. Some long queues at busy times, not their fault, free cocktails take time to make and always served with a smile. I could tell that the whole place was understaffed but those that were working so hard could not be faulted. Some cosmetic stuff could be improved, pathways etc, but I guess that is done over the winter. Room was clean & modern, shower was amazing, side sea view was as described. Beds! So comfortable! Thanks for a great holiday.
