I travelled with my partner, we're both aged 26. It was a brithday present for him from me, and we stayed for 1 week. We arrived first at Split airport and caught the Croatia Airlines shuttlebus to Split Harbour (a small fee to pay, available to passengers from all airlines). This took about an hour. When at the Harbour we... More

Friendly staff (best so far in Croatia), excellent food, big rooms. Located superbly. Spent couple of days here, and moved to bigger 4* hotel next door, Elaphusa. If I would choose between the two, Borak would be my preference. Somehow, felt more relaxed and satisfied than in Elaphusa. WiFi is pretty weak, typical problem in most of Croatian hotels

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.

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.
