“Beautiful place with friendly hosts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2010

We stayed at Bolbeach for 5 days in the beginning of July 2010 with our two children (3/9 years old). We rented the top apartment with a seperate bedroom for the children and a nice balcony overviewing the seaside of Bol. Bolbeach has only a short walk to the city center and a beautiful stroll along the promenade to the famous beach Zlatni Rat.

He owners were very service minded and helped us a lot with carrying our bags, information about Bol and places to dine etc.

Bolbeach gives you value for money, and is clearly a good alternative to expensive hotels and the "all inclusive-feeling" at several other hotels at Bol. Staying at Bolbeach gives you a friendly and cozy feeling.

The Bolbeach Guesthouse in Bol was a great place to stay as part of our weeks holiday on the Croatian Islands. It was fantastic value for money and the rooms had everything we needed. They were very clean, the beds were comfortable and the bathrooms perfect for us.
It is in a great location- 5 mins from the town centre and 5 minutes to the nearest beach.
The owner, Boris was really friendly and took time to give us lots of useful info about Bol and the srrounding area. He recommended a restaurant which turned out to be our favourite and we definately wouldnt have found it otherwise.
He made sure we felt very welcomed and was very quick to respond to all our queries.
I would definatley recommend this place to stay for couples, families and friends.

When we arrived at Bolbeach Apartments we were greeted by Boris, the super-helpful owner, who not only sat us down with a map and showed us the location of everything we needed, but also gave us a lemon from one of his many fruit trees. Now that's service!
The apartment itself was cosy and clean and more than adequate for what we wanted. The location was great, 5-10mins away from the town center by foot, 15mins from Zlatini Rat (the main beach), and a 2min walk from the nearest beach.
The location meant that the apartments are in a pretty quiet area (apart from a little bit of building work that was going on at the time of our stay), and the apartments are enclosed by fruit trees and flowers so you can sit out on the terrace to eat and drink with little disturbance.
All in all Bolbeach apartments were great value for money which I would highly reccomend for couples/families that want to stay somewhere clean and comfortable, but that doesn't break the bank.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2008

We came here after 2 days in Split.
We took the ferry to Supetar and then bus to Bol.
Boris the manager "picked us up" at the bus station and we walked with him to look at the room. It was a lovely studio with a double bed and a small kitchen, balcony and private bath all very clean and seemed to be newly renovated. Since the rent was resonable and the weather wonderful we ended up staying for 1 week.
Boris was very helpful and told us all we needed to know about local restaurants, walks, shops and bus and ferrie timetables.
They did not make their own wine anymore which was mentioned in another review.
This place is conviniently situated close to both the famous Zlatni Rat beach and the very small village center (harbour).
Since October is off season we had the beach for ourselves ;-) The weather was like our Swedish summers with 20-25 C high and 15-17 C low and blue skies. Water temperature was 18-20 C, enough for a quick swim.

In all we had a very pleasant stay in Bol.

It’s a perfect apartment block/hostel in the centre of Bol.

Boris, the owner, is really friendly and will meet you from the ferry port. He will happily tell you the best beaches, restaurants, etc. He will also sell you wine grown locally by his family. I bought 3 litres (it worked out at only about 75p a bottle !!!!) and as he will tell you, it doesn’t taste too hot ‘til the second glass, but then its actually really nice.

The personal touch in these apartments is really welcomed. Boris seemed to be into providing value for money, and a pleasant experience to the traveler, and not making massive profits.

I went in Sept 2007 and he was in the process of refurbishing the entire building to a very high standard. The rooms are large, clean, and most look out to the garden that has Limes, Pomegranetes, oranges, olives, etc, etc. He was also about to put in a terraced BBQ in the garden with seating area amongst the fruit trees.

The apartments location is about a 5-10min walk from the town, and 15mins walk in the other direction to the ‘Zlatni Rat’ beach (the one in the brochures).

If he suggests you go to a restaurant called ‘Mendula’ GO THERE !! It’s really romantic, cheapish, and the custom is for the waiter to offer everyone a free drink after your meal. They also have a help yourself salad bar that is free when you order almost everything on the menu. (Be warned though; it’s a [--] to find so get Boris to draw you a map !!!!)

  • Liked — friendly and helpful owner, and rediculously cheap accom for rediculously high quality accom !!
  • Disliked — nothing
