I have been visiting the Elephusa Hotel for many years now and always find it a pleasure to go back. Bol itself is in a perfect location - the small town is a very good and easy walk from the hotel, and there are many lovely beaches within walking distance. It is lovely to stroll into Bol in the evening for dinner, or just a walk.
The reception staff are friendly, helpful and welcoming. Whilst I do agree with some of the other posters that the rooms are basic, our sea facing room is perfectly adequate - how long do you spend in a hotel room in such a lovely place? The staff that serviced our room were very friendly and helpful - they always tried to service the room while we were at breakfast so we would come back to a ready room.
I found, once again, the breakfast was great - fresh fruit and plentiful supply of loads of different foods. I cannot comment on the evening meal as we did not eat in the hotel, but ate in Bol at night.
However, one negative comment. If you are looking for the friendly warmth and charm of a Croatian resort, this has now gone and the hotel has taken on the form of a French holiday package resort. Whilst the hotel does seem to welcome all its guests, and I have no problem with elderly French folk on package tours, the French "hosts" in their Fram outfits are just too awful. They seem to be everywhere and appear to have taken over the hotel. Their poolside antics are just awful - their shouting into the microphone and excessively loud music drove us to the beach. Salsa lessons in the midday sun which nobody attended but had these people cavorting around showing off was the last straw.
I would not let this put me off going back though, and I look forward to my next visit.
