Hotel Villa Adriatica
10 Traveller reviews from Holiday Watchdog
Good value and frindly service
"We spent a week here in late June after a week in Dubrovnik.
We agree that the service is lovely and the owners and their staff could not have been more helpful, but the pool area is tiny, four sun loungers fill the area up and there is no view at all apart from brick walls. But we weren't too disappointed as the beach is so near and the sea so beautiful. Try the local snacks called Longos at the western end of the beach - like deep fried crunchy pizza!
The breakfast is basic but fine. We had a room with a great view at the front on the top floor. Ask for one of these if you want any kind of view. The rooms are basic but perfectly adequate with quiet air conditioning.
Supetar is lovely, very unpretentious with reasonable restaurants and bars. Seems to be a popular spot with Eastern Europeans of all nationalities, so English is spoken everywhere. Hire a car and have a llok at the ;little villages around the island. Some along the coast not far from Supetar are so pretty and quiet. Bol is very busy. Watch out for the nudist beach which is easy to come across and can be a bit of a surprise if you aren't expecting it!
We'd definitley come back here for a few days. Very relaxing and good value."

"repetative breakfast,warm juices,,cold scrambled egg,and when we were there no dinner as advertised. Small pool, nicely laid out garden, but at the expense of anywhere to park. The choice of "BEACHES " is between concrete pavements (as used by the locals) or rocks. There is no such thing as sand anywhere on the island. The hotel rooms were spotlessly clean as was all the hotel. If you come to Brac stay a few days and then visit other places as there is a lot to see."

"We stayed at the Villa Adriatica for a week and it was a great experience. We went with a small baby and the hotel owners and all of the staff went out of their way to help us. We were always greeted with a smile and all queries were responded to positively and promptly. The hotel is beautiful and very clean and the air con in our room worked fine. Breakfast was lovely, with a wide variety of foods, including hot and cold.
The pool area, jacuzzi and outside bar are beautifully done and ideal for a bit of realaxation.
The hotel is an extremely short walk ( 3 minutes) from a beach with watersports and a short walk away (5 minutes) from quieter, wind shielded beaches.
A 5-10 minute walk from the Port, the hotel is ideally placed for all restaurants and bars.
Brac is a beautiful island and in our experience the Villa Adriatica is fantastic value money and the best place to stay there!"

Inviting, friendly and relaxed..
"The tone is set by the manager Dan, his wife Paola and his no 1 Neva who create a relaxed atmosphere in this family run hotel. It is warm, friendly and the customer service in all areas, from all staff, is excellent and executed in a most understated manner. You really feel that your custom is valued - what a joy!
The decor is bright and modern with some innovative art work adorning the walls of the hotel in keeping with it's island setting. An indoor terrace and an outdoor terrace as well as a small pool area give options for R & R.
There are plenty of opportunity for exploration with the ferry and bus terminals being only 10 mins walk away. Numerous pebbly coves are within walking distance. Lots of various water activities and tennis available. You can eat dinner at the hotel or in some quite good eateries nearby accessed on foot.
Enjoyed our stay enourmously. One word of warning..credit cards not accepted."

This Dump Is The Worst!!!
"This place is nothing more than than the cheap motel of your worst nightmares. It is not even on, or in sight of the beach. On their website, they advertise that the rooms are air conditioned and they have free WIFI. Forget about the internet & even though the temps. were in the mid 80's, but no a/c. When we asked for both, they said we complained too much, & kicked us out of the hotel. They would not return our passports until they made sure we did not vandalize their property. They even called the police to detain us. It was shameful.
My goodness, we are 2 retired folks in their mid-fifties. Were we really such a threat?
Croatia is gorgeous. We finally got back to Split at 9PM, & checked into Le Meridian, & were spoled to death."

Very comfortable, excellent service.
"We stayed at Hotel Villa Adriatica for 7 nights, and I have to say my holiday was just like a dream. From the first moment I entered the hotel, the staff welcomed us with beautiful smiles, and we immediately felt at home. The management and staff who work in this hotel are friendly and charming and this helps to make such a relaxing atmosphere.
The hotel restaurant is really something special and therefore worth mentioning. Large buffet style breakfast can also be enjoyed on the terrace.
The reception desk was very helpful. They booked us a great sightseeing tours (Krka Waterfalls & Rafting). They recommended a great tavern in the village of Humac. I was impressed with the laundry service which returned finished items the same day I left them in for washing.
The air conditioning was excellent.
The pool area is so clean and elegant, like a private oasis, it may be a little compact, but what do you expect from this kind of intimate hotel?
In the end I was so sad on my last day when I had to leave.
I found the service at the Hotel amongst the best we have encountered, but what we shall remember most of all is the staff who could not have made us more welcome, and the degree of service we received from them, served always with a ready smile, is the stuff we can only dream of getting in France nowadays..
Hotel Villa Adriatica was excellent value, I enjoyed every minute of my stay, and I cannot wait to return."

A friendly, quiet, relaxing spot
"The Villa Adratica is 3 mins from the sea in Supetar and only 5-10 mins walk from the ferry. It has good amenities including a small pool and jacuzzi, sauna and mini-gym, drinks and food.
The staff are really friendly and will book you on any day trips you want to take. Breakfast is included and is very nice.
The rooms are modern, clean and cool - they all have air coniditioning that can be left on all night because it's quiet. The bathrooms are very nice and looked recently decorated.
It's generally pretty quiet and we would visit it again if we came to Brac."

Feel like Home
"Warm feeling in the hotel and colorfull design of the rooms made my stay feeling like staying with a friends. (That experience I did not have everywhere in Croatia).
Family managing the hotel (Dan and Neva) showed us best Croatian hospitality that cares for details.
Definately recommending to visit the different places and Villages in the Island and explore still untouched nature."

Supetar is Super !
"We stayed in Hotel Villa Adriatica, Island Brac, for 5 nights. This place was of a very high standard and the staff were very attentive. We enjoyed our time on the lovely pool and terrace sipping our favotite Sex on the Beach cocktail. One day we spend in Trogir and on the way back visited Diocletian Palace in Split. Another trip with rent a car we made to the other side of the Island to the village Bol. Stop at the Vidova Gora, it is off the way a bit but really worth.
We completely enjoyed the atmosphere in Supetar and our small boutique hotel Villa Adriatica."

We have just returned from a week at the Hotel Villa Adriatica. This small family managed boutique hotel offers excellent service and friendly staff is always there to help you explore the magnificent sights of the heaven like Island of Brac. Otherwise, you can just relax and sunbath at the lovely hotel outdoor pool and Jacuzzi area, sip a cocktail and listen to relaxing Dalmatian music. Beach is just 100 meters away and there is the unique experience of the clearest - Adriatic Sea.
Busiest season is in July and August and I would recommend that you avoid these months. You can enjoy the peace and tranquility of the hotel and Island Brac from May to July and in September and October.
Rooms are not too spacious but very comfortable, all rooms are double with air-conditioning , balcony, Sat TV and direct dial phone. Hotel is completely remodeled and refurbished in 2003.
Enjoy room service on your balcony and taste local wine and excellent Island cheese. Including is the lovely buffet breakfast with cheeses fruit pastries etc. During the afternoon sitting in the garden terrace you can enjoy aperitif before the dinner.
We paid only $79 per night for a double room which we thought is excellent value. Overall I would say this is probably the best and most convenient hotel we have ever stayed in on holiday!"
