“Nice hotel but I'm sure there are better places on Bol”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2012

Spent 2 days here in Sept 2012. I thought Bol was one of the most amazing places I have ever been. The island itself has a wonderful setting with restaurants and bars along the sea-front

The villa is located quite close to all the attractions of Bol and to the famous beach Zlatni Rat.
But it was the room in this hotel that was a let down.
Half the door to the shower was missing so when you showered you left the bathroom soaked, the air-con didnt work very well and I found the overall decor very dated.

From reading some reviews here, I believe some of the rooms at the front of the hotel have great views onto the coast, perhaps my opinion would be different if we'd had one of these.

Family owned villa daniela was a great location half way between the beach and the catamaran. A lovely friendly family owned business who made sure my friend and I had a perfect stay. We stayed in one of the budget rooms which was ideal, modern and a good size. The pool area is small but we alway managed to get a sun bed. Villa daniela is definitely worth visiting. When I return to Bol I will certainly stay here again,

Stayed here just this week. Had a great time, just off the main drag (5 mins walk into town) which makes it a lovely quiet retreat. Amazing views from the balcony and south facing so lots of sun. Very clean, very friendly staff, good breakfast and definitely good value for money. Would definitely recommend it and would stay again.

Room Tip: Make sure you ask for a balcony room.

The location of this hotel was great..close to the center yet away from the noise and also very close to the beach...
the staff is really helpful
the breakfast is ok - tasty eggs- but not too much varaiety
The mattress was too soft and uncomfortable
The amenities - soap , shampoo- in the room were not replenished
the views are ok...it s nice to have a balcony but it is not like we had a sea view
We had a family next to us and we were waken but the noice of the children at 8am every day... the soundproof between rooms is not that great.
There is no safe in the hotel and we found it a bit expensive 160euro per night for what it offers but that were the prices in Brac in August I guess...

My husband and I stayed at Hotel Villa Daniela last week on our vacation to Croatia. Clean, great staff, small (but wonderful) pool and great location. it was a 5 minute walk from the central part of town, and about 15 or 20 from Zlatni rat beach. It was quiet and comfortable, even if it was a little out-dated. The big seller on this place was how nice the family who runs it, and the pool. It is SO hot in Croatia in August, and it was so nice to come back to a place with a little and quiet pool.

would stay here again.

LOCATION: Perfect. Nice hotel in a lively town on a nice island. The hotel is a villa with about 15 front line rooms with a balcony. The view is towards the south, the sea is behind a line of pinetrees, and the mornings there are beautiful. You can see the sun from the sunrise to the sunset. There is AC in the room that helps to keep temperature reasonable, but is not able to freeze the room. Pool is small and clean. We liked to sit by the pool after the dinner. It was quiet in AM and in the evening, which was nice. People in the hotel were quiet. If you want music and entertainment, it is about 10 min walking down the street to the center of the small town Bol. We loved it. Caffes with TV, ice creams stands, restaurants. We tried a couple and they do deserve good reviews.
STAFF at the hotel was very friendly and helpful.
ROOMS: We did not like the economy room for 2 people, because it had a noisy motor (I guess AC) next to it. We only needed it for one night, before we were able to move part of our group of 4 to a different room. All rooms with balcony were great. We were able to use the fridge for our drinks and put their stuff back in at the end. Not all rooms had the same size of TV - on a smaller side, and some bathrooms looked better than other. It is a family run hotel - not a chain. All had a hair drier, no coffee maker, no iron.
BREAKFAST: Simple and tasty. Home made, solid quality items. Open from 7-10 AM.

Room Tip: All rooms with a balcony are great. Some economy rooms may have noise from the general AC.

Well located, clean, staff were very helpful (apart from an unfriendly bloke who wanders around with a face of thunder). We went for the Economy room - you don't need anything more as the room is somewhere to sleep only. However, the first room we were given was next to the hotel's aircon generator and had a nasty loud unlivable hum. We were relocated to another brighter, quieter room upstairs and all was well. Pool area is nice - we spent a couple of pool days reading. A little windy for August. Breakfast is servicable, but nothing more. As for Bol, we stayed 7 nights. It's s great location but 5 days maximum to experience all its charms. Restaurants are of a high quality - go for the fish platter for two. If we went to Bol again we would stay at Hotel Daniela. One tip - if you arrive in Supetar (like we did) get the bus to Bol. It's cheaper and less hair-raising than the suicidal taxi service. Terrifying.

Room Tip: Get a room without a balcony. They all face the pool and the road which can be noisy. Budget rooms d...
