We stayed here for 2 nights in August- perfect location if you want to visit the Zlatni Rat beach and it's about a 10/15 minute walk from the centre of Bol. Rooms were a good size and were clean- facilities were good and the reception staff were friendly and helpful. We paid well over £100 a night so maybe a... More

We thought this was a nice place to stay. Just what you would expect from a large hotel chain. Big, clean and nice breakfast. It's not the most amazing place your stay however it does the job for a beach type holiday. The only issue we had was that the shower was very very small which I did not like.

Feels like being at university. Big open entrance like an auditorium. No feeling to it. Very noisy as it is mainly family groups in house. They have kids clubs and activities late into the night which is ridiculously loud. Good location. Friendly staff. Very dated rooms. Breakfast is not bad. I would not stay here again. Love the Island but... More

We stayed 10 nights at this hotel. The hotel room was tiny, air-conditioning was unstable, and the interior decor material (also in other parts of the hotel) seemed to be from 1980's. There was a bird's nest on the balcony (as in many other balconies as well) which made the use of the balcony impossible if you wanted to avoid... More

Dear Miisa, Thank you for your review.

You are correct, hotel decor could use a renovation, which is something we anticipate to happen at some point. On the... More

The hotel is not new, but confortable. The swiming pool area is great, so as the bar. And we can use the spa at Bluesun Elaphusa. The breakfast is very good.

Our stay at this hotel was only 1 night long, but we still had time to enjoy, wonderful location, very close to the well-known beach. Room was spacious and comfortable, nothing fancy, but very clean. We arrived there in the evening and decided to take a walk, sunset on the beach was really fantastic and memorable. On the way back... More

This is not a typical hotel that we would stay at as a family (normally rent a villa/apartment) but we are glad we did!
