We booked this hotel for 6 days, on a non refundable saver rate, through booking.com, which worked out at around £110 per night. This was the standard room. The hotel is situated at the end of a long street with various bars, restaurants, clubs, tourist shops and even the dodgems! This is, unfortunately, quite a tacky street in Supetar, particularly as the rest of the town around the port/harbour is so pretty.
Our room was very clean, with standard furnishings, two single beds joined together, as well as the bed being very firm we did not find it comfortable. Our room was on the ground floor, around the corner from the reception area, and in the corrdior towards the pool. We had a terrace with a table/chairs and two sun loungers which was private but faced out to the breakfast room.
On arrival we found the staff to be very friendly and advised they could help us to book tours, or car hire and recommend restaurants etc. We went out to dinner our first day and had a few drinks, that and the long day and early flight that morning helped us to sleep soundly, until about 7am when I could hear clearly voices in the reception, going to and fro. It then dawned that the proximity to the breakfast room was not good, from 8am to 10am the clunking of plates and cutlery and I actually thought people were on our terrace having their breakfast! I do have to emphasise I have very sensitive hearing and my husband slept through most of this (to my joy!) but if you are a light sleeper this will wake you up.
On our second night, and staying sober, I discovered a nearby club/pub with a penchant for the same base/beat continually until gone 1 or 2 o clock in the morning, a brief period of sleep, then awoken again by breakfast!! We asked if we could be moved to a quieter room and they advised they had a garden room available at a slightly higher price. The garden room was directly across the corridor from our room and had a balcony overlooking the small garden and bar area. The room was exactly the same as the first, but the noise in the morning was much better. However the noise every night from the pub/club was even louder, seemed there was no escape. I do have to emphasise again I am a light sleeper and my husband did sleep through the noise from the club as well, so only be cautious of this if you are also a light sleeper, as this did ruin my sleep on holiday, but I haven't seen another reviewer mention this.
The hotel facilities were ok, as mentioned the pool area is small, the breakfast area was ok but we didnt take breakfast in the hotel preferring to eat out in varying cafes, or bringing breakfast back to eat on the balcony. The outside bar area, in our opinion, did not look like the photos the hotel portrays, and it seemed in need of a refurb.
Purely because of the noise issue we did consider moving to another hotel but as we could not recoup our costs we decided to stay on (although we did leave one day earlier to return to Split - sorry to hotel we said we were meeting up with friends there) We would recommend hiring a car and exploring the island, it is so easy to get around. Bol is also a lovely little town, with the beach Zlatni Rat nearby, crowded during peak season but the most beautiful crystal clear water, my husband dived with Big Blue divers whilst we were there and was full of praise for their professionalism.
Because we like to explore, in hindsight we would have stayed only a few days in Brac, then a few days in Hvar, and a few days in Split, or stayed Split and went on tours from there. Having said that after a day in busy Split it was nice to retreat back to an island! The day we left early to Split, we had left our laundry in one of the hotels laundry bags, this had been taken away and we left without it, the hotel emailed us that evening to say URGENT, we had left our clothes, we arranged for someone to meet us off the ferry in Supetar so we could collect our clothing and pay them, and thanks to the hotel for arranging this.
Ultimately there is nothing wrong with this hotel, just not enough right for us to return. Obviously the hotel suits most people due to the rave reviews it receives, and our decision to stay was partly based on these reviews, and well done to it. We do understand you get what you pay for, and so didnt have huge expectations of luxury, but we did feel the room standards could have been better. Coupled with the lack of sleep during our stay we would not return, but would, again, congratulate the staff on their service during our stay.
