Villa Giardino is a real gem. I won't repeat all the good things others have said - they're all true. What I will say is that Christine and her staff provide a level of service difficult to find anywhere else. Exceptionally accommodating, always eager to help, wonderful meal suggestions (including making reservations), etc.. On the day we left we departed before morning breakfast service (with the amazing fig jam and honey) - not a problem! They packed a breakfast for us! Who else would do that?!?! Our sea view room was immaculate, very nicely updated, excellent AC, and spacious. The grounds and gardens are gorgeous, the house is beautifully decorated. If you like/appreciate the B&B experience and enjoy a non-party, refined atmosphere, this place is a must.

We thought we knew the best spots on the beautiful Croatian islands. But we have found a real treasure in the magnificent Villa Giardino surrounded by the perfect gardens. Every detail in the house and in the garden is really special .One can clearly see that there is a lot of love and good taste invested in the final result. Our only regret was that we could only stay for 4 nights as there were no rooms available. We are really looking forward to going back for a longer period next year.

I stayed here for 8 nights in July for my honeymoon. We arrived and were greeted by Christine and some nice cold lemonade. All the staff were very polite and helpful, with a special mention to Aida. They have lots of tips and recommendations for eating out and other excursions. They will call restaurants to book you a place or call car rental companies if you need a car. Our room was spacious, clean and right near the back garden, where you can put your feet up in the shade. The beds and pillows were comfortable....which you can't take for granted at a lot of hotels! The breakfast was delicious - start you off with bread and local made jam, then you can order cooked breakfast. I usually went with the scrambled eggs and bacon. I think the hotel is good value for money.

The location is perfect. You can stroll into Bol center in 2 minutes. There is a small supermarket on the street down to Bol, and a bakery, ATM, pharmacy etc...

From there you can get a boat virtually anywhere. If you want to walk to Zlatni Rat beach it is a nice 30 minute walk, mostly through a pine tree covered promenade along the water where people are selling their wares. There are lots of good restaurants to try.

You might want invest in some water shoes for the beach. I would 100% recommend Villa Giardino if you are coming for a few days break or 10 days or 2 weeks. You will have a fabulous time.

Everything about Villa Giardino. We stayed in far 'fancier' hotels on other islands but the efforts of Christine and her team surpassed them easily. Our stay was part of our honeymoon and we couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. The homemade lemonade on its own ensures the number 1 ranking. A blissful retreat.

We had a wonderful stay at this hotel. The moment you arrive, Christine greets you, offering you her fresh lemonade, you know you have arrived at a truly lovely hotel. It's stunning gardens, great breakfasts, perfect location, lovely rooms make this a great place to stay. Christine is passionate about guests having the best experience and her whole team echoes this.

We were there on honeymoon and we couldn't have asked for more. I suppose that is why it is number 1 on trip advisor!

I was a little skeptical of any hotel that describes itself as having 'antiques' - however the Villa was very tastefully done with great sculptures and none of the cluttered / nic-nacs I was worried would fill every corner.

The hotel was clean, comfortable and had beautiful gardens that were well cared for. The staff members were very helpful. Also, the breakfast was delicious. Try their homemade fig jam!

5 minute walk from the center of town / ferry landing.
