Moontenegro - a bit advanced Soviet type vacation with crowded and dirty beaches.
Hotel - very basic, with zero territory, around 300-400m from the beach.
Stayed in this hotel in June 2012. Will start from general impression from Montenegro. If smb has been to Crimea (Ukraine), Montenegro is not very advanced from that. 70-80% of tourists are Russians. Beaches are very crowded and relatively dirty. Service is pretty basic, if you want to have something decent you have to pay inflated prices that are at par with Spain or Greece this relates both to restaurants, hotels, excursions etc. (e.g. 2 sunbeds and umbrella on the beach will start from Eur 8/day up to Eur 75 on the royal beach, lunch in a restaurant (salad and main) will be EUR 18-20). Most of the time we spent in Becici, what is surprising, there are only 2 restaurants on the promenade - Azzure and the one with the red roof (do not remember the name), all the rest are small eateries which I would avoid for sanitary reasons. Azzure - relatively ok, if you stay in Mediteran you can put the bill on the room. The red roof one is horrible - bad food, poor service and inflated prices, by all means avoid it. If you want to have wider range of restaurants you have to go to Rafailovichi (2 km from the hotel).
Interesting places: St. Stefan, Bococotorska bay, Kotor. Be prepared that you can foto St Stefan from the outside, however since it is a hotel ( approx. Eur 1400/day) the territory is closed for the outsiders. Royal beach is another victim of privatization - if you want to swim there you have to be either a guest of the hotel or pay EUR 75 for 2 sunbeds.
Now on the hotel itself:
Apparently this was a Soviet Intourist-type hotel, which was refurbished 7-10 years ago.
Rooms are pretty basic quite stinky, service is average (linen was not changed over 5 days while we stayed), breakfast is very basic. Hotel does not have any territory. Swimming pool is a joke it is designed for 20 people max. No kids club.
Good things - you do not have to pay for the sunbed and umbrella on Mediteran beach, evening programme is quite boring however not noisy.
