“Best hotel”
Reviewed November 1, 2013

We had such a nice time here. The hotel is great in all the aspects: very comfortable, great breakfast, nice location.
The staff is the most careful and nice I have ever saw. They always have the best solutions with a great smile.
So good i did not want to leave.

Room Tip: Ask the staff, send them an email. They will be very helpful.

The hotel was superb, all new, in an Dalmatian olive style, with some nice modern features and fresh rooms. Some of those places you want to keep secret avoiding unavailability for your next reservation. There are parking spaces, you have a free parking near the famous beach and the old part of the village is not too far. Room facilities and interior is great, breakfast very nice and delicious. Sound insulation is poor, you hear guests in other rooms and outside the rooms speaking clearly - a pity.

But what is it making this hotel an extra ordinary one?
-The two guys at the breakfast who will welcome you with a cordial smile, pampering you at the start of every day. The waiter and the chef are at your disposal ensuring you feel very special. You have an extra wish? No problem, -you do not need to ask for it, they ask you before you think of it and they are very obliging taking excellent care of kids and toddlers. These two guys made the difference, they deserve a 5th star you may experience in top hotels around the world for service. It's so simple sometimes, but that's why this is simply Bol's best accommodation and the reason you look forward to come again once being back in Croatia.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for choosing to stay in Hotel Bol and most of all for taking the time to write this review and share such positive comments about the hotel interior, the rooms, the staff and the breakfast. We strive very hard to offer our guests the best at Hotel Bol.

We are indeed sorry you could hear guests in neighbouring rooms and out in the corridor clearly. Thank you for bringing it to our attention. We have not thus far received similar comments from other guests. It could be that those particular guests were louder than usual. We sincerely hope it did not disturb you too much.

We have already passed on your wonderful feedback about Goran and Neven, our breakfast staff and they received a round of applause from all of us here in the office. We agree with you that they are a winning combination delivering a level of service that goes beyond expectations and upholding our business core values.

If you are ever in Bol again, we would love to welcome you back to Hotel Bol. Again thank you for your review. It means a lot to us to receive feedback from our guests.

Best Wishes

Valentina

My friend and I stayed here for 4 nights at the end of the summer season. The hotel was only opened in July and was amazing. Very smart, comfortable and wonderful staff. A welcome drink on arrival, beach towels, discounts at local restaurants and a free shuttle to Zlatni Rat beach. Yes a steep walk back up the hill from the town but the location was quiet. The breakfast was anything you wanted as much as you wanted...omelettes delicious! Our thanks to the wonderful team of staff!

This boutique hotel is the epitome of style and sophistication. The designer should receive the highest award for attention to detail, flowing spaces and beautiful colour scheme throughout the hotel. The bedroom was incredible with an amazing bathroom with all mod cons through to the lovely sitting area and then through to the beautiful bedroom area. This was set off to the side giving a lovely separation of living and sleeping areas. We also had a lovely little balcony looking out over the garden, other rooms looked out to the sea. The staff are friendly, informative and seem to genuinely want to make your stay as perfect as it could be. They succeeded in our case, excellent customer service. We had a lovely breakfast with Gordon in the restaurant the perfect host providing easy chatter whilst completely attentive to our every need. Again attention to detail with even the salt and pepper condiments shaped as pebbles reflecting the famous beach Zlatni Rat. The hotel provides free transport and collection to and from the beach and to the ferry port in town which is a 5 minute walk away.
If you're visiting Brac, this is definitely the place to stay. Note that the hotel are planning to add a swimming pool and provide evening meals for next years season.

Room Tip: If you're staying longer than one night, worth booking the rooms with a sea view.

Well, I've been traveling a lot, but this Boutique Hotel goes in my "Top Five" Hotels in Croatia! Simply for 5 basic reasons: Staff - Clean - Location - Value for Money - Service! All excellent grades! The one I liked mostly is very young and cute staff with "human touch" approach, very rare to find today! The design is so modern and attractive with the prevalence of my favorite color – olive green; so charming and lots of refined taste in natural details as wood and pebble stone (guess from the famous Zlatni rat Beach). The service is excellent too; free lift to the beach, or free parking place on the same one! High level breakfast, underground garage! In few words, book this hotel if you’re intent to visit this lovely place!

Dear Andreas,

Thank you for staying with us and most of all for taking your time to write this lovely review.

It is rewarding to know you thoroughly enjoyed your stay. The girls on the reception and our boys in the breakfast room do their best every day so they will be happy to know you were satisfied with their 'human touch'. We also appreciate your recognition towards the design elements that recall natural features of the island of Brač and the level of cleanliness of the hotel.

We hope you enjoyed the rest of the town this much too!

Best regards,

This place is beautiful. Whoever did the interior design/ decorating should win an award. If you are looking for a place to relax, this is the place. The staff was very friendly and informative, the room comfortable ,spacious and tastefully decorated, and breakfast was excellent. Also, it was very, very clean. We would gladly stay there again ang give it our highest recommendation.

Dear Warren and Alicia,

Thank you very much for taking time to write a review of Hotel Bol and share such positive comments about the hotel interior, the rooms, the staff and the breakfast. We strive very hard to offer our guests the best at Hotel Bol and we are very happy when our efforts are so recognised.

The interior designer we worked with is Sandra Mateljan, a sculptor and designer from Split, who we believe skilfully incorporated elements of native Brač into a contemporary design to create luxurious yet comfortable accommodation. And we find that the main olive green colour whispers to guests to relax, rest and recharge!

Thank you once again for the positive review and for recommending Hotel Bol to friends, family and other Tripadvisor members. We hope to welcome you again at Hotel Bol.

Kind regards,

Valentina
