We stayed for 3 nights. It is full of mosquitoes but a type that is the worst. All my body was full of huge bites. The breakfast is terrible. In such an island with full of products and fruits, the hotel gives only preserved canned fruits in the breakfast! If you go around 9:30 there is nothing left. The food is disgusting. There is no beach. It is only pebbles. The beach seats are taken even from the night before by people putting their towel and leaving there the whole day. The seats are not enough. There is nothing in the neighborhood. You need car for sure to find something to eat. I didn’t try dinner at this place after seeing most disgusting food in the breakfast. I wouldn’t go back!

Dear Demet T,

Thank you for sharing your experience of the Senses Resort.
We are sorry about the mosquito bites. We spray against mosquitos on regular basis. However, we can not kill every single mosquito considering we are located in a beautiful pine forrest a few meters from the Adriatic Sea.
Your comments about the food are heard, we are sorry you feel this way and wish you would have voiced your opinion while at the resort so we could have reacted and prepared something to your liking. Our breakfast buffet offers a wide variety of hot and cold choices but we do as well allways try to cater to special requests. The fresh fruit is available as well together with the compots. We also use localy sourced products such as honey and olive oil.
About there being no beach, the beautiful pebble beach Soline is one of the most popular beaches and one of the best family beaches on Hvar. It is located 10 meters from our hotel. If you prefer you can take a walk towards Jelsa and find many small coves. Unfortunately, the nature hasn't given us sandy beaches. The sunbeds are provided free of charge for our guests and they are available on first come, first served basis.
About there being nothing in the neighborhood, our Resort is located near the charming town Vrboska. Walking along the promenade by the sea, you arrive in the center of Vrboska in 15 minutes which enables easy access to cultural heritage. We are sorry if you were expecting something else.
We hope that you will change your mind and give us an opportunity to exceed your expectations during your next stay with us.

Kind regards,
Your Senses Resort team

The resort was right next to the sea and extremely scenic. We loved the decor if the reception area and took many photos sitting on the wooden swing, by the tall lamps etc

They had a perfectly adequate swimming pool but a few of the girls went into the sea too which was shallow enough nearby to be safe.

They had a great room with cards and games.

When we first arrived we were disappointed as there had been lack of communication between the resort and Travel company Fleetway about our Vegetarian and Vegan dietary needs.

When we spoke to them about it they tried extremely hard to provide us decent cooked food for breakfast and dinner.

They started providing us with cooked mushrooms and kidney beans for breakfast.

Making french fries every evening with different vegetarian choices including jacket potatoes and pizzas. Every day they had a delicious vegetarian soup.

We left happy with the effort Mario, the restaurant manager, and the kitchen chefs and staffade for us.

Whilst they had no kettle in the rooms they gave us hot water when we asked for it in the restaurant and bar areas.

They had a hairdryer and safe in every room which made our life much easier.

We found all the staff including reception and cleaning management and staff extremely friendly and helpful.

We would highly recommend Senses resort.

One issue though they don't give tap water to drink with evening meals however we started bringing our own bottles of water and started asking for hot water which they gave us.

A recently modernised hotel in a stunning coastal location on the Island of Hvar. Not the easiest to get too with out transport - you'll need to arrive from Split via car ferry into Stari Grad or foot passenger Catamaran into Hvar or Jelsa, then get a taxi transfer. However, oncer here it's well worth the effort as the hotel sits by the water's edge with the Adriatic sea lapping its shores. Rooms are not luxurious but are modern, clean and functional. They all have either a terrace or balcony overlooking pine trees and many also have sea views. Rooms contain comfortable beds, TV, desk + chair, adequate hanging space for clothes and a room safe. Shower rooms are smart and purposeful. There are no tea/coffee making facilities but there is a very reasonably priced mini bar. Bath towels are changed as required however a charge is made if the provided pool/beach towels need to be changes during your stay.

Dining it is a separate building and is buffet style for both breakfast and dinner. There is no lunch service, only panini style sandwiches available to purchase from the bar (they're missing a trick here by not providing more of a lunch menu!). Breakfast is as expected from an International hotel: cereals, fruit, yogurts, breads/pastries, cooked items (bacon, sausage etc) and fresh eggs and pancakes cooked to order. Dinner is a mixed affair - salads, soups, a couple of meat dishes and a fish dish with various accompaniments. It's a little bit like school dinners, but most people will find something to enjoy, it's just not particularly sophisticated. Saying that, it's very good value. Deserts are not worth bothering with! Drinks prices for local wine and beers is very reasonable and good value (quite drinkable if you're not snobbish), available in restaurant and the outside bar. The lobby bar opens if weather is bad and the outside bar is forced to shut.

There was no evening entertainment, which we weren't bothered about, however, some people may find this place too quiet.

The waterfront location is the star attraction. The sea is crystal clear and beautiful if you like to swim. There are various spots on site to sunbathe on loungers or walk 15 mins to the peninsular and you'll have rocky inlets and pebble beaches to bask on. This area is also classed as FKK - naturist friendly so if its your thing to bare all then you're free to do so without feeling on show! The hotel has a nice sized swimming pool too but that didn't interests us when we had the sea instead!

There are facilities on site to learn to scuba dive or go on diving trips. There is also facilities to hire bikes and kayaks - do explore further afield on a cycle as you'll see much more of this beautiful island. Others at the hotel also hired quad bikes from a place in Vrboska, the local town.

The nearest small town is Vrboska (20 minutes walk) and offers a few good quality restaurants, bars and cafes. A nice change from the hotel dining options! There is also a small bakery and a couple of small supermarkets and gift shops. Jelsa is larger and only a bit further to walk, but easy to access via cycle and worth a visit too.

Overall, a decent hotel in a beautiful location. Ideal if you want a simple relaxing holiday and to connect with nature. Not so good if you're wanting a lively, buzzy, party holiday.

Getting There - Thomas Cook Flights from Gatwick to Split were on time and adequate. As it was early season, the ferries Split/Hvar were infrequent, hence a 2 hour wait.
Transfers - were on time, adequate, but had to wait for late arrivals @ the airport.
Hotel/Resort - very good, and would gladly return again for early/late season holiday as it is good value for money. Facilities include tennis, crazy golf, diving, etc. It's located 25 minutes walk from the Vrbroska which has lots of bars and restaraunts. Our 2nd floor accommodation was excellent, food was good, staff were friendly and listened/acted to a couple of issues. Generally a good location for exploring the island (we used a local bus service, others used bikes, etc.), and weather was fantastic. The are also plenty of walks which we like.
Getting Home - transfers were very well organised. 4.45 am start from hotel (with a packed breakfast), 5.30 am ferry, airport check in was for all flights hence no waiting, 10.35 am flight which landed on time @ Gatwick.
Thanks to all involved - a good early season break.

Room Tip: Sea view rooms have trees in front of them, but you can see through them.

Came here on a girlie holiday with a friend.
Pros:
- clean
- great pool
- beautiful location
- easy access into clear blue sea
- dive school in the hotel
- smells nice?! Lavender, sage - can smell this around the pool
- rooms are clean, modern, really high standard in my opinion
- great shower
- easy 15 minute walk to vbroska centre
- can cycle to Jelsa in approximately 45 mins
- staff all friendly and helpful

Cons
- breakfast average. Lots of food but food not the best quality.
- main con for us is that we thought vbroska was near to Hvar centre where you can go out partying. This was an error on our part as it’s not and it’s an expensive taxi ride to it. Would not recommend here if wish to party in Hvar or party as vbroska town is pretty dead (only restaurants to eat in and not much else). Was a very quiet few days for us (which would normally be good) if we weren’t wanting to go out more!
