My wife and I booked a 5 night stay at Villa Milton in Hvar for our honeymoon through our travel agent. Unfortunately, we were placed in the annex, the building right next door. Having been to other hotels elsewhere in Croatia prior to arriving, we were extremely disappointed. Our travel agent booked the stay for us, based on the photos available on booking.com that we had reviewed and no where were pictures of the annex on that site. Despite the host being very kind, he was unable to help us in upgrading to something that was more welcoming. The owner told us to “contact Expedia for a change of accommodations” and “that it was not a matter of money” to him. However, when we did so, he refused to refund us so that we can stay elsewhere. The owner admitted to the fact that the pictures of our room in the annex were not on their website booking.com (when googling the hotel, the official website brings you there). Here are the things with which we were disappointed: - Upon arrival, the host told us that our room wasn’t ready yet, and we could leave our luggages in his garden. We refused and stayed with our luggages because this was an open space, accessible to anyone. - When our room was ready, our luggages were passed over through shrubs to the neighbouring building. - Along the 20m walkway to this annex building, we had to face a dozen hornets and wasps. This occurred on a daily basis, whenever leaving or entering the establishment. When we told the host about this problem, he suggested we use “biokill” ourselves to spray and kill the hornets and wasps. - There was no shampoo, soap, toilet paper or bathrobes as advertised. - We were informed that they were not responsible if the doors were not locked and if personal belongings were taken, however the lock on the patio door was broken. - The shower head was not adjustable, as it was broken. The overall state of the bathroom was in terrible condition. (See photos) - The air conditioner had either of two settings, Arctic cold or Saharan hot because it is directly above the bed. - In general, the room was extremely dated. Despite the beautiful view, and the gifts of wine and lavender from our host, we were uncomfortable and upset that we did not get to experience Villa Milton as advertised. Be careful when booking and DO NOT book the annex.
When in Hvar, we are staying at the Villa Milton which I would recommend to anyone wanting to enjoy the views of Hvar while staying in a clean and beautiful room overlooking the Adriadic. The room we are staying in is spotless and the modern decorations add a great touch. The host is very friendly and made sure all of our needs were met! He even delivered us beautiful plates of Croatian cheese and olives on a rainy day to ensure we weren’t bored! The elevation of the apartment provides a spectacular view... truly a lovely place to stay!
Just got back from Croatia and stayed in 8 different places a mixture of hotels and apartments and this was the best out of all of them, the view from the balcony is incredible, the location is just a few steps down into the port, I wouldn’t advise walking up the steps when arriving if you have a suitcase, the owner is very friendly and informative he even left a bottle a wine and beer for us on arriving and when we left he gave us some local lavender which was a great touch
My friend and I stayed here for 2 nights. Pero was extremely communicative right before arriving in Hvar. We got a cab/taxi right past the cathedral in the main square to the Villa Milton, which was 100 kuna. We met Pero right away and he gave us an upgrade upon arrival, which was extremely generous. Pero spent about 20 minutes with us showing all the sights, bars, and restaurants to visit in Hvar on a map. It also happened to be my friend’s birthday, so Pero came back and gave us a free bottle of white wine. The apartment has spectacular views, the apartment was clean, had a washing machine and all the amenities, and the bed was comfortable. It was also such an easy walk to “downtown.” Also, we were able to store our luggage on the day of departure because our ferry to Dubrovnik wasn’t until later in the day. I highly recommend staying here!
i visited Villa Milton with my wife. The apartment with balcony facing sea view had an amazing view and was totally beautiful. The owners are very friendly and helpful and also at the time of arrival the owner guided us with a lot of options of good restaurants in the Hvar island and the places we could go. It's a totally pet friendly place and the apartment was kept neat and clean and also is very spacious. The surroundings were nice. Please call the number on arrival and follow the instructions as it might be a bit difficult to get the place. Rest assured, it's amazing. Totally recommend...
We loved the owners and their dog! They made us feel right at home and even had the sweetest pup. Room was very clean and the view was amazing! We were even given lavender pouches at the end of our stay as a parting gift. Would stay again and recommend to anyone in a heartbeat.
Pero will pick you up if you advise him, and you will need it as the town is a warren of paths and stairs. Once there, it is so convenient and a few minutes down stairs and paths to the port and main square. Great facilities and lovely new bathroom and bed. There is a little courtyard with table and chairs and a great view. Pero is very friendly and can advise you on your plans.
I spent 5 days at Villa Milton; island hopping. The airlines lost my checked bag. No results on my own ; but the owner Mr Pero took over my problem. He handled all phone calls and even drove me to the ferry to collect my bag 3 days later. The rooms are 3 star but the view and personal service are 5 or above. The only draw back is the STAIRS. Every time you come or go it’s a 3 story climb. No matter what your physical condition is .....From the ferry; Take your bags to the main plaza ( it’s level and relatively smooth) then take a taxi to hotel. Maybe $15 US. Believe Me; it’s well worth it! After that you’re just carrying your day pack up & down. Mr. Pero can tell u the best restaurants and activities to enjoy. Villa Milton’s positives outweigh the Stairs. Croatia is just budding as a US destination. When they ever get a direct flight it will Bloom. Get in Now and enjoy !!
This place is hard to find. Follow the owner's directions precisely, or you will get lost, which is no fun. Also, there are lots of stairs from the ferry to the room, so don't try to lug a large rolling suitcase up all those stairs. The owner charges a significant daily cleaning fee plus a resort tax, in addition to the room rate, which should have been mentioned within a few days after booking the room. The wifi is terrible, so do your web surfing down in the town. My room was quite small and unimaginatively decorated. I don't think I would stay here again, although the view was stunning.
We booked Milton apartments for the Hvar portion of our honeymoon. It’s less than a 5 minute walk from the port/water, main square and all the shops. Stunning view of the harbour and island. The room and bed were also very clean and comfortable, better that the pictures even. We received an incredibly warm welcome from the owner(Pero) and he made our stay above and beyond what we could have expected on our honeymoon, so good we changed our flights and stayed a few extra days!! We would recommend Milton apartments and Pero to anyone. As a local he recommended all the best spots to visit and dine at and we were never disappointed, some of the best restaurants we’ve ate at in all of Europe. We travelled around Croatia and highly recommended spending the most time is Hvar! There are so many places to visit on the island, from beach to wineries, and a ton of day trips to other islands. Pero is definitely a gem himself, and helped with trip planning on the island. We will definitely be back!!
