Carpe Diem could be amazing but ultimately service lets it down. The staff are generally a bit rude and not very helpful. Little things like waiting ages to order drinks and not being able to order a side of chips despite many meals coming with chips. It's also a shame you can't order food to the beds. The music was...

People passing by, free wifi, easy music, sunny day, the sea is just to incredible, come on! What more do you need?! I heard a... More

Went there to the full moon party at night after having a cocktail or two at the main carpe diem bar in Hvar. loads of americans, aussies and europeans at the party with a few locals as well. The entry to the island is 150 kunas and drinks are expensive by Croatian standards but reasonable by London ones which thankfully... More

Very good looking bar with expensive drinks and a loud clubby atmosphere...especially if you turn up around yacht week when the world's rich kids decide to spray champagne all over the place. The thing I definitely would recommend however, is getting their free boats (they run all day and night) to the Carpe Diem party on a nearby island. Entrance... More

Regular club, lots of college kids and very drunk people usually. What's nice is that they have boats to the party island, also called carpe diem. Party island is way better than the bar. Just a fun place to have a drink and dance for a bit. Closes at 2, don't take credit cards.

If you are in Hvar, Cro. this is inavoidable place to be! By day and also by night, starting from the music to the atmosphere, is the most awesome bar in Hvar ;)

Of course I needed to visit this loungebar in Hvar Town after reading allllll those reviews about it. And I got very disappointed. Average cocktails for high prices, incredibly arrogant staff (I think that is rare in Croatia) and a weird policy in who is allowed to sit where. Music is very loungy, and so very interesting when you walk... More

Nice location and cool interior, but other than that nothing special. Overpriced, average cocktails, no atmosphere and arrogant staff. A whole lot of nothing!

Very overpriced - nice setting but not great vibes. We were disappointed that the beach party wasn't open as hear that is meant to be amazing. Would recommend nautica over carpe diem

The sea and the nice breakfasts there make the perfect combination for the nice and cozy cushions there. The place isn't cheap, but worth any cent spent there, free wifi and great posh atmosphere makes a unique place in a paradisiac island. One of the best places I have been during my trip in Europe last year!! Worth to have... More
