The Fontana Resort is located on the wooded hillside of the town of Jelsa on the island of Hvar, directly facing beach. The city center is about 1640 feet away. Free WiFi is available in all areas. Everything. The location of this place is magical. Rooms could use and upgrade but that didn’t take away from how perfect Jelsa and this place was.
Located in Jelsa, B&B Aurora offers accommodations with a patio or a balcony, free WiFi and flat-screen TV, as well as a garden. Some units feature a seating area and/or a terrace. Magda, the host of B&B Aurora is one of the nicest person I've ever met in my life. Great hospitality, breakfast always fresh, room clean and tidy, and the little garden around the building is fascinating. If you are looking for a relaxing and charming place, this is the one!
Facing the beachfront in Jelsa, Villa Riva has a terrace. Staff on site can arrange airport transportation. the apartmant is right at the port of Jelsa in the heart of the old town.the window was overlooking the sea, the port and all. The apartment was modern, clean, spacious, comfortable. The owner was a very nice, friendly young couple who did everyting even beyond for us to enjoy our holidays! Wish we would have stayed longer! Thank you for this amazing stay Marija! You are such a great host and a very nice person!! :-) see you soon! Krisztina
Featuring free WiFi throughout the property, Guest House Jelsa offers pet-friendly accommodations in Jelsa, 27 mi from Split. All rooms come with a flat-screen TV. The owners are very kind but weren't around most of the time which was complicated for the check-in and check-out. Great view from the balcony and great location to get to the center.
Offering free Wi-Fi and free parking just 492 feet from the sea, Villa Volga provides rooms with attached bathroom and apartments with a TV. The host, the place, the attitude as well as the location and breathtaking views - everything was great! Appreciate the help and assistance of Gordon for making our stay that convenient and pleasant what it was. We hope to see you again!
Perfect little town for families or pairs who are looking for a relaxing and calm trip. Scenery is beautiful, good restaurants and bars, all people are really kind and welcoming. Another really great plus is that I haven't met anyone who would not be able to speak English at least on a basic level.
Town is easily accessible by ferry or catamaran from Split . If not arriving directly to Jelsa - you can take public bus from Hvar Town or Starigrad to Jelsa bus station- walk from here is approx 15 minutes. There are 4 supermarkets, and a small market stall selling fruit and veg. Restaurants cater for all diets and local ice-cream is delicious. Take or buy swim shoes for swimming in pebbly coves ( watch out for sea urchins) - take swimming goggles there are loads of fish to see. Be sure to explore the side streets and alleys. Enjoy a stroll round the coast road to Vrboska - and get the bus back to Jelsa. Invest in the Lavender oil sold by locals - it will remind you of your holiday everytime you use it .
A wonderful small town with some big aspirations. A mix of tourists and locals. A kids park, great restaurants of all price ranges. Easy to walk around. Safe to walk everywhere. Beautiful. Great local library (with a small English section). Great place to get lost.
The final place we stayed before returning to the UK. There was a nice balance of relaxation and fun in this area. Took a short cycle ride to the nearby ‘mini venice’ (recommended to us by a local in Trogir) which was a nice sweet village and a highlight for us. Lots of nice ice cream and some sandy beaches to explore too. Would go back again!
Lovely town with a great vibe in the evening and a quiet feel in the day. It has a beautful marina and charming lanes to get yourself lost. We ate at Bistro Star on the marina, which we would recommend. We went to the beach near the centre, which is pebbly but easy to walk to from our apartment and quiet enough. Our kids enjoyed snorkeling there. We really want to go again.
Jelsa ist für uns die schönste der 3 "großen" Städte. Nur die Altstadt in Stari Grad war noch schöner. Es ist aber sehr nett in Jelsa Abends zu essen und danach ein paar Cocktails zu trinken oder wo anders zu essen und in Jelsa ein paar Cocktails zu trinken. Eine Bar haben wir besonders gerne besucht :)

The location is very convenient for people with small children because a sand Mina beach is quite close (approx. 10 Minutes by feet). At the same time, the center with cafes, restaurants, shops and a small market are very close. There is a large balcony where you can have dinner or breakfast or lunch. The view from the balcony is wonderful. In the evening or in the night you can observe stars (upstairs) or see the night life of Jelsa (downstairs). The apartment is quite large. there is enough place for the child. The hosts are very friendly!

Nice, quiet. Close to Jelsa (2km) and Vrboska (3km). Two flights of stairs to the nearest beach. During our stay or was as if it were a private beach. Homely welcome with wine, limoncello, rakija and cookies. Helpful owners who speak rather good English. Well equipped kitchen. Clean bathroom. Would recommend for a longer stay for people looking for some quiet time. Prolonged parking available on a neighbouring street, with free spaces visible from the balcony.

B&B Aurora was exactly what we were looking for on Hvar Island. It is located right within the Center of Jelsa town, just far enough from the bustling ports that it was a quiet escape. Magda (and Aurora, the dog!) was an amazing host and shared great recommendations for first-time visitors to Hvar. Breakfast was great, too. We even chose to extend our stay within the first few hours! We were so happy with the stay, and hope to be back!

This apartment is the best I have stayed at in Croatia, or anywhere else. The decor was beautiful and really felt like home (I wish my home looked liked this) - the owners have clearly invested a lot of time and thought in creating an apartment that stands out. The view from the balcony was jaw-dropping, the best in Jelsa! Nice bath tub and comfortable beds. The owners and staff were very friendly and welcoming. I would 100% stay here again.

Rubin Jelsa features cheap price at highest level of comfort you could imagine. Location of the property is excellent, with reserved parking space. Host is approachable, helpful and non-intrusive. Appliances in studio are all in working order. Studio interior was spotless clean on arrival. To sum it up, this is surely the best accommodation option you have in the whole Jelsa.
We loved the large private terrace overlooking the harbour and the pool area with its own kitchen and bathroom. The neighbouring restaurants were happy to deliver food to us on the terrace and we were only minutes from the main village/town square and facilities. Jelsa itself felt friendly and safe.

The view of the house it's incredible. Although it sits on the upper colin, it's close to the marina and close to the beaches of Jelsa and the main road of the island. It has a parking.

The only thing I liked was the location but this is very easy to find in any other place in Croatia.
It is in the center of Jelsa, it has aircondition in 3 rooms. Landlords were very friendly.

We liked the grill at the balcony with pretty nice view over Jelsa. The pool was nice for kids too. There was a rocking bench at the balcony which was nice to use in the evening. The lady owner is extremely nice, helpful and friendly. Her husband has many electric bikes for rent, they offer them for free to test too. The location is up the hill which we liked since there are no crowds as in the city. The view is limited but still nice.
