    The campsite is located some 4 kilometers away from the centre of Bol, and around 2 kilometers from Zlatni rat beach. It sits on the slope towards the sea, and it is arranged as a string of terraces rolling down towards the beach.

    We were there outside of the season and camp was not officially open. Thus, there was no electricity after 10 or 11 p.m., but roads and paths were illuminated by soft light from the solar-powered garden lamps. Half of the camp is in the pine forest; other half is more opened and covered with olive trees. When we were there it was almost empty, but when it is peak of the season and the camp is full, there is no room for the cars next to the tents. When such situation arises, free parking is provided at the entrance to the campsite. The camp is clean, with bathrooms and showers scattered around the premises, including several outdoor showers.

    There is a bar and a kind of store on the premises, but we were there a couple of days before they were opened. Regularly, you should be able to get basic bakery and dairy products there. Also, there should be a room with refrigerators and a kitchen area. The closest general store is some 3 kilometers away, at the entrance to Bol.

    The beach is made of gravel, with a raft for sunbathing next to it. There is a small beach bar as well. You can rent kayaks and surfboards. Campsite also offers accommodation in quaint bungalows, right above the beach. Wi-Fi reaches reception and the common area terrace with a bar.

    If you plan to visit Bol and Zlatni rat frequently, without the car, it could be a long walk (30 minutes to 1 hour). Think about renting a bike or scooter. The location is also a good base for hiking trips to Vidova gora and Blace monastery.

    Room tip: For shade throughout the day, pitch a tent on the left side of the campsite, in the forest above the bungalows.

    It's absolutely one of the best campsites I have been to. The place is amazing: it is clean, and the staff is extremely friendly and helpful! I love the set up of the place, all the tents have their own water view, you don't wake up looking at someone's tent. The facilities are super clean. I literally have nothing to complain about, except the extreme heat there was during the days, but that's something they cannot control. The thing to keep in mind is that if you plan to go out in Bol, this place is quite a walk from the city. If you want to experience Brac without the many tourists, this is the place to be.

    The beach house was fantastic! Clean, comfortable, and very, very near to the beach. There are two bedrooms, a large dinning area, kitchen, shower and WC (separated). But the most beautiful thing is the terrace where we spent most of the time. This camp may be a bit far from the center, but once you get there you don't need to go anywhere else, so that is a moot point. Sure, you do need groceries, but if you organize yourself well, you wouldn't have to go to the store more than once a week, since you can order bread and croissants on a daily basis. All you have to do is enter your name and order on the message board at the reception. Staff is amazing as well. They are always there for you, whatever you need, whenever you need it. The water is crystal clear so that we couldn't get our sons from the water for hours. And the last but not the least, night swimming under the most perfect moonlight. What an amazing experience!!! We are definitely going there next year!

    The place is amazing, also if you stay as a family. We tried another camping site near Bol, but please forget it, go to this one. We met a lot of nice people and had the feeling of a very open space. We had many grill evenings with other campers, sometimes we were around 30 persons eating, drinking, and sharing things together.

    It felt a bit like a wild camping, at first you will miss having a supermarket around or a city, but I think the more you stay there, the more you love it that way. It is a ruff land, but beautiful, the sea is directly in front of your tent. The staff was very kind (the guy on the reception talks at least 7 languages fluently) and helped us with all the problems we had. He managed everything very nicely, especially during the grill evenings, and he is a very funny guy, so we considered him a friend in a very short time. We would go there anytime again.

    Camp Aloa is one of the most beautiful places in Dalmatia. There are many things that make the camp beautiful. First of all the location of the camp is amazing, and I especially love its natural and wild look. There are many different flowers, walls made of stones, the water is clean and crystal clear. The view when you open the tent is something unforgetable, especially at sunset. You can put up your tent a few meters from the sea and enjoy the whispers of the sea during the night. There is also a cave just behind the camp site. You can swim over there in two minutes, and if you like snorkeling, then it is the right spot for you to do that! Inside the cave and above it, cobs have their nests.

    The staff is friendly, funny, and they are always smiling; they are almost always there when you need them but if no one is there, there is the number at the reception that you can call or just leave a message on the message board. The toilets are pretty clean. There are also ten funny little kittens, turtles and gloden fish. You can get bread and crossiants in the morning for breakfast, as well as coffee, drinks, etc. When the camp is full, they organise Tuna Parties, and they grill fresh tuna for the guests. You can visit their Facebook page Camp Aloa Croatia, and check out the pictures of the parties and of the place itself. Don't judge this camp by nehative reviews, go see it with your own eyes instead. People love this place. The only thing is that it was hard to find it at night but everything else is amazing! If you want to relax, enjoy nature, and feel positive energy, then this is the right place for you. We will be back!

    First of all, the place is overall in a wonderful position, the best located in Bol, however you can't go there unless you have a car (4,5 kilometers uphill from the city centre). Bathrooms are quite clean, but lack hot water and toilet paper. This camping would be perfect if only it was managed better. For example, you have to pay for electricity, but you only have it for around eight hours a day; in addition, the lights are turned off at midnight without any notice, even when you are clearly using the common space. The staff is certainly the worst aspect of the place: when you arrive (if you are lucky enough to find them there!), they are rude and unwelcoming, and it looks like they are doing you a favour in letting you stay there and finding a space for you. The guy at the reception always makes you feel like he is trying to scam you; they sell few things (water, beer, breakfast) at very expensive prices compared to other places in Croatia. Whenever you need to ask for anything (directions, information, check out time etc) the guy makes you feel like an idiot, and is always extremely unpolite in answering. Overall, it could have been a very nice experience, but the staff completely ruined it. We do not recommend this place: having a beautiful location does not allow you to neglect politeness and customer care.
