We stayed at Hotel Bol on Brac for two nights during our two week Croatian road trip from Perla in the north to Dubrovnik in the south. The hotel is very nice, we had room 313 which had a balcony overlooking the pool. The room was a very good size with a seating area and was spotless as was the bathroom. Nice to have the facility to make tea and coffee and the welcome drink was a nice touch. On the second day we had a plate left in the room with small sweet treats which again was a nice thought. The pool looked lovely and although it really warm enough to swim we did enjoy sitting outside on the comfortable chairs one afternoon. Recption staff were very welcoming and very helpful in explaining the local area, places to eat and to visit. A very enjoyable two days spent here, Brac is a lovely island.

We spent 6 nights here on our first ever trip to Croatia, and what a find! the hotel itself is small and beautifully designed, the olive theme carried right through to good effect. Beds were comfortable, poolside amenities top class, a good gym(we didn't use it!) and comfortable chic surroundings. But the absolute bonus were the staff who without exception spoke beautiful English, were friendly and helpful and could not do enough. Particular thanks go to Mia? the restaurant manager for terrific breakfast and a delightful personality, a real asset. Also to the receptionist who gave so freely of her time, knowledge and patience, and whose local knowledge enriched our stay. The manager Darios is a star - our friend lost his passport in transit and he went way above and beyond the call of duty to ensure he got it back by making calls and organising things for him, our holiday could have been ruined but he saved it.
We would all highly recommend this hotel, set in a charming village, the cleanest we have ever seen with every shop and restaurant a testament to the charm and warmth of the people. We loved it and would highly recommend it. I only add that we are in the hospitality business ourselves and thought the standards here were of the very highest, thank you all for a wonderful time.

Room Tip: Ask for a balcony overlooking the pool for the best views and early sunshine

Dear Jane,

We are over-the-moon to receive such a wonderful review and for having impressed colleagues from our same industry. Thank you for taking the time to speak so highly about our hotel and in particular our staff - your praise will certainly delight them and make their efforts feel worthwhile as their season comes to an end. We are glad we helped you recover your friend's passport - we know how that kind of worry can ruin a holiday.

It was a pleasure to have you stay with us and we hope to welcome you back to Bol again some day.

Best Wishes,

Hotel Bol

Room 103 is spacious relative to the other rooms we are told. This is unfortunate as the room appears to be too large for the air conditioning unit which only managed to cool the room to 24 degrees by the bed. As the room has one small window and a door which never has the sun on it the room ought to be easier to cool than others which had the view. The electric room key was broken to be fixed at the end of the season. The tap in the bathroom was broken but replaced with one which did not operate the plug.

Bol was a great place but in future we will stay in the apartments near to the sea rather than up the hill in a so called boutique hotel.

Dear Andrew,

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us and others. We are very saddened to receive the first one star review in five years and to know that absolutely nothing in our hotel or service pleased you. We try our hardest to provide a top quality stay and service as most of our guests appreciate as you can see from the many previous reviews.

The air conditioning in the room is perfectly functional (we have checked) and the temperature can be adjusted in the room as we showed you during your stay. The average daily temperature outside was about 25 degrees and 18-19 degrees at night so we do believe the issue was a matter of settings as we've never had a complaint such as this before.

Indeed the electric lock for this room was not functional and since we are on an island we sometimes simply have to wait for a few days for electric parts and handymen to arrive. The lock was fixed today and hopefully will work better for future guests. We are truly sorry to hear that having to use the normal key for the door was such an inconvenience.

We try to be as accommodating as possible going the extra mile to ensure our guests are completely satisfied with their stay. We are sorry we did not manage to satisfy you in any way.

Kind Regards,

Hotel Bol

We had a room with a sea view and it was fantastic. From the initial pickup from the ferry and reception with Katarina we were treated wonderfully. Allowed to check in a bit early and given soo many helpful tips on restaurants, markets, and beaches . We used the pool and the work out facility which were absolute pluses . Just down the street there are great hiking/running trails along the mesmerizing Adriatic Sea and amidst the miles of vineyards. We rented mountain bikes and did some riding as well as relaxing at different beaches every day during our stay . This hotel truly makes you feel so cared for with so many personal touches. The breakfast each morning had many choices and many of them were very healthy. 100% endorsement of staying at this hotel if you want the extra attention and assistance as well as a lovely place to stay close to everything!!

Booked direct with Hotel transport provided from port then got upgrade on arrival !Katerina was very welcoming and gave us a lot of information on on Bol and surrounding area.Hotel is modern clean and bright with good facilities.
It is up a steep hill which would not suit everyone but if we return to Bol would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: ask for room with view
