I'd definitely recommend visiting Bol for a relaxing break, particularly if you like beautiful beaches which Bol has plenty of!
I chose the Elaphusa because we wanted a hotel with a swimming pool and a bit of luxury. I selected a superior room but when we arrived it didn't have a balcony, which wasn't clear on bookings.com when I booked - you have to select a sea view room to have a balcony, regardless of whether it is standard or superior (the only difference if you select a superior room is that it is slightly bigger). Despite this, the hotel moved us to a balcony at no extra charge, which was excellent, and the receptionist was very accommodating.
The hotel was clean and modern, however it wasn't quite the 'luxury' we'd imagined with the price tag attached to it and was a little soulless being such a large complex. Also, when we were there a French tour operator also had a group of guests and whilst trying to relax by the pool they kept doing announcements for various activities quite loudly through a PA system, which was irritating. The breakfast buffet was below average although there was plenty of it.
If I returned to Bol I would sacrifice the convenience of the pool and choose a more authentic and reasonably priced hotel and utilise the beautiful beaches instead, as I was disappointed for the amount the hotel cost.
