“Marvellous!!”
Reviewed May 23, 2014

We spent 4 nights at this wonderful hotel, and from the biginig it was a great experience. All staff was absolutely welcoming and kind with us, specially the 2 ladies from the front desk. They helped us on renting a scooter and also arranging the taxi to take us to the catamaran when we left. A special detail was that they gave us, before we asked, a breakfast to take away when we left, because we had to take the catamaran earlier that the breakfast hour.
So I absolutely recomend this hotel, not only because the people, but it outstanding location and big and cozy rooms. Thanks for everything, and we'll be back!

Situated right next to the amazing Zlatni Rat Beach, this hotel is perfectly located. The staff are really friendly and helpful, which is one of the most important things in a hotel. We only stayed for one night last August, travelling through Croatia, but the staff still made us feel very welcome.

The rooms are plenty big enough, and all have Wi-Fi. The breakfasts are great, with much variety, and you can eat out front with great views of the beach and sea.

Plenty of car parking spaces available. No pool, but with the beach only 2 minutes away, you really don't need it.

The main town of Bol is a very pleasant 10-15 minute walk along a pine tree covered promenade. Lots of restaurants and bars there, but certainly not too touristy. There are bigger more expensive hotels nearby, but this one is closest to the famous beach and is definitely recommended.

Greeting on arrival was friendly and helpful. We booked the one bedroom suite which was awesome. It was exactly like pictures we seen online. Our room had big bathroom, big bed that was very comfy, wardrobe, kitchenette and lounge with coffee table. Of course Wi-Fi was great. We had complimentary tea and coffee facilities as well. On rainy days the hotel supplied loan umbrellas. The staff were always friendly and helpful and spoke English very well. The hotel is about 50 mtrs to to the beach. Walking distance to Bol town and all the activities, bars and restaurants. This hotel also has a lovely restaurant and bar area. That does not get noisy. We found it great value for money and enjoyed our time in Bol.

We stayed at the Zlatni rat Beach Resort for a week last September. We have never been to Bol before but we have friends that visited it the year before and they raved about it for weeks after coming back home so we decided to give it a try.

We booked this hotel mostly because of the location and we were so happy when we arrived and saw that it literally is the most perfect beach location. The hotel is located less than 100 meters from the beach Zlatni rat which is a beach unlike any we have ever seen. To have that just a few steps from your hotel room is priceless. The other positive thing about location is that it is outside of the town area. It is surrounded by a small pine wood and a vineyard so it is super quiet and relaxing. The town can still be reached in 15 or 20 min along a beautiful promenade. We found the stroll pleasant after an evening meal in the town.

The hotel staff was helpful and kind from the first time we called and asked for direction. We arrived to Bol by bus and they sent a car for us. Nice touch! At the check in they explained they do that all the time. They also gave us some basic information, a map and a discount card for various services in town. Another nice touch! We stopped by reception every day to inquire about this and that not once felt like we were a trouble. They always had time and after two days we felt like going to say hi to friends.

We stayed in a sea view room which was spotlessly clean and comfortable. The air-con worked impeccably, the wi-fi was good, the balcony was large, and there is free coffee restocked daily. What more could you ask for.

The breakfast is served in the hotel restaurant where you can sit at one of the tables lined up at the promenade, overlooking the sea and the beach. There was a big choice of fresh fruit, cold cut meats, yogurts and pastries. They also serve freshly prepared omelets. We had something different each morning.

Altogether we had a great time. Bol is a beautiful, lively, little town with amazing beaches. We will definitely revisit and stay in Zlatni rat Beach Resort again.

AWESOME location!!! You can walk just a few steps in one direction and you are on Zlatni rat, the most beautiful beach in Europe, or you can walk for about 15 minutes in the other direction to lively village Bol for some really nice restaurants and bars. The hotel is very small and personal. The hotel grounds are well kept and pretty. The cocktail bar does fantastic cocktails and we had two dinners at hotel restaurant which was really good too! The rooms are clean and there is enough space for clothes and luggage. They have a fridge, daily stocked toiletries and my favorite the complimentary tea and coffee in the room. The wi-fi worked good during the whole time we were there.
The staff is extremely helpful, welcoming and friendly. You are presented with a discount card at check in that you can use for various watersports, restaurants or excursions.
I can't recommend this place enough if you are after a small, relaxed hotel on an awesome location!

We stayed at this place for two night beginning of October 2013.

What we got was a clean room in a beach hotel that made us feel being back in the 1980s. Some refurbishment here and there had been done, but the place as a whole was not what we had expected from a hotel at that price in the 21st century. The beds were comfortable and the room would have been big enough for two people - but as we had booked a room that sleeps three people, it was a little too small.

The bathroom was clean, but the sink was stinking incredibly! After opening the bathroom window, the smell disappeared within an hour, but when coming back to the room after an afternoon at the beach, the entire room was smelling again. Given the price of the room, this is an absolute no-go! Besides that, there should have been WiFi in our room, but in fact, there wasn't.

On the service side, we were also rather disappointed. The service wasn't this "bad", but not as good as we would have expected with regard to the price of the room. Also, two of the three points of touch with the people working at the hotel showed quite a level of imcompetency. The most annoying one: The gave us wrong information on ferry schedules and times which, on the day of our departure, brought us to a town on the mainland from where the was no ferry going to where we wanted (as there was no car ferry, only catamarans) and one day later to another destination where there simply was no ferry as the hotel gave us the summer timetable which was not valid anymore.

This hotel is a valid option if you are just looking for a room to stay, but I would not recommend going here if you want to spend a relaxed holiday at the beach. Also quite misleading: The hotel also names itself a "beach resort", but once a the beach, you noticed that not even the beach beds are included, but rented separately by a guy that charges 50kn for it. Depending on what you might look for, renting an aparment in Bol could be the better deal. From Bol, it's a charming 20min walk along the coast to get to Zlatni Rat Beach.

I've never been treated like that in my entire life! I felt like a princess! ;) The service was overwhelming! The manager called us before we arrived the hotel, asking if we could find a boat to go there, she said a car would be waiting for us at the port, and she offer the same on our way back. During the breakfast or lunch, she always came to say hello and ask if everything was ok with the room and the facilities of the resort. At the reception, they explained to us everything about the surroundings, even other restaurants, the city center and how to get there. The people, the place, the hotel, the food, the wine (the local ones: domestic), everything was absolutely perfect! What a place!
PS: The only thing I should make a note is: there is too many wasps around the restaurant and is really annoying to eat or drink. The hotel should do something about it.

Dear Priscila,

Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review of Zlatni Rat Beach Hotel. We are extremely happy you felt like a princess during your time with us and appreciated our effort to provide a level of service over and above guests' expectations. We are also deeply satisfied that you enjoyed the food, the wines and the hotel itself.

With regards to the wasps, this has been a particularly bad year for wasps throughout Bol and Brač, due to the 'ideal' conditions the wasps enjoyed in the spring that allowed them to thrive like never before. When there are so many, most methods used to get rid of them are ineffective. However, we appreciate your comment and we can implement some short-term solutions to allow guests to, at least, enjoy their meal in peace.

Thank you once again for such a positive review. We hope to be able to make you feel like a princess again at Zlatni Rat Beach Hotel. We think everyone should feel like that at least once a year!

Kind regards from sunny Bol,

Valentina
