Nice hotel with a short walk from the beach. Nice pool area, and the breakfast buffet was big and varied. This hotel is not elegant, not romantic, not trendy, not comfortable.
The room we got was nothing more than ok. The bed was not good, and could have been softer. Did not sleep well. The furniture on our balcony was old and not so good to sit on. Looked like they would fall apart very soon. The hotel is not modern, and in our opinion too expensive if you look upon what you get.
On the positive side you get free wifi in the reception and free safe deposit box and aircondition in the room. In many other hotels we have stayed on you often have to pay for that.

If you want to lock the door in your room from inside, you have to use the key which is quite unusual. Usually you do not use the key inside. A keycard and an automatic locking system on the door would have been nice. You even have to use the big key to lock the door when you are leaving the room.
We also had some troubles with the shower in our room, and was told that it was supposed to be like that, but it was not. After our second time of reporting the problem they managed to fix it, but the problem apared again after just one day. Quite disturbing.

The reason for being so critical is because the hotel did not live up to our expectations. The hotel staff was friendly though, so if they manage to upgrade the room standard they might actually live up to their room rate.
We visited the spa and wellness center in their neighbor hotel Elaphusa which I rather would have stayed on.

The location was so great though. Walking distance to the center of Bol, and zlatni rat. Beautiful place in Croatia!

The Borak is cheaper than the Elaphuse (same company). Of course, you will not find here the leisures as bowling or disco. But you can go in Elaphusa too, just 1 minute walk. The hotel is in front of the beach (you can go also to a beach that looks like a funny tongue, 10 minutes walk), the way is very nice with a lot of trees, and it is a pleasure to smell them. The hotel hitself is not very nice to see from outside, but inside it is clean and the team works well. Be carefull Bol is as expensive as West Europe.

We stayed at the Hotel Borak through Thomas Cook last July and it was honestly the best package holiday I've ever been on. We we well looked after on the journey (reps even looked after our luggage so we could explore Split while waiting for the boat to the island) and the information provided on the coach was spot-on. The hotel itself is spacious and clean and the staff are extremely accommodating. They go to great lengths to make your holiday a memorable experience by providing free activities to try, like archery, scuba diving and croation lessons. There is also an array of fitness classes in and by the pool each day. It's also in an ideal location, over looking the beautiful green water and only a short walk from the old town. While the beach is pebbly (which won't suit everyone), a lounger or blow up bed makes it ideal for lazy days and there's lots of watersports to try, including windsurfing and kite surfing. The food at the hotel Borak is OUTSTANDING... Despite the slightly impersonal self-service, the choice on offer is fantastic and there really should be something for everyone. The chefs even russle up things just the way you like it if you ask them! Bol is stunning and this hotel is just the icing on the cake - I would thoroughly recommend it and am puzzled as to why more people haven't discovered it yet.

I've been there in the apartment houses. It was really big, had a separate bedroom and a living room. It was clean, the food was the most awesome hotel-food I've ever eaten. The beach was clean and also beautiful. I really enjoyed this trip.

Bluesun Borak is a wonderful hotel. Spotlessly clean, pleasant staff, best self service food i've ever had. Nearly all staff spoke good English to say that not many Brits were in the hotel. Not good though for the disabled. I think not a hotel for the young either. Virtually no night life - there was a nightclub in the Eliphusa but a lack of people to fill it. So overall a very quiet, relaxing holiday. GREAT.

Bol and the area caters for the energetic and athletic types as there are all sorts of watersports to do as well as mountain bikes and quads to hire. Tennis courts galore, volley ball, table tennis etc. You can even hire a boat.

We went on a day trip to Hvar - a much older town over looked by a fort. The harbour is full of very expensive yacht, motor launch's etc. Great views from the fort. This trip is certainly recommended, we even saw dolphins on the way there as well as on way back.
