We stayed here 6 days in August 2014. The hotel is in an excellent location - probably the best in the Kotor area, situated on the bay with stunning views from the rooms and the pleasant adjoining pier. It is only a few km from Kotor (about 45 min walk, 10 min taxi ride) but is very peaceful and relaxing. The hotel has several loungers on a jetty into the bay which is an exquisitely tranquil and beautiful place to relax. The hotel staff are friendly and in the main helpful and offered a welcome drink on arrival (raki for men, cherry brandy for women!). The hotel itself has been tastefully designed and decorated and in addition to spacious rooms, all with bay views, offers a breakfast room, patio restaurant, comfortable and stylish bar, swimming pool and seating areas. The restaurant meals are good and offer a wide choice of local cuisine and some more innovative and creative dishes - the warm fish salad is delicious. Visitors should be aware that meals on this coast are not cheap and while food here and in the several nearby restaurants is generally good, it can be expensive - a meal for two at the fish restaurant next to the Radomiri can easily cost 80-100 euros (which is roughly the average weekly wage in Montenegro). There is much that is very positive about the hotel and we very much enjoyed our stay here. Sadly there were a few negatives that could easily be amended and would turn the hotel into the truly special place it claims to be. The hotel breakfast was a disappointment. There are several set menus available (or one could order a la carte at additional charge) but the quality was not as high as expected. Fresh orange juice came with only one menu (the 'healthy option'), otherwise only diluted fruit drinks were available. The oat porridge was poorly made and, on one occasion, inedible. While diced fresh fruit was provided, the pastries were usually disappointingly stale and the toast barely warm. A hotel of this rating and price really should be able to do better. We had an 'attic room' on the third floor which was roomier than we'd expected and stylishly decorated with plenty of space to sit and relax, and marvelous views through two velux windows. But the bathroom was very cramped with barely enough room to turn round without banging an elbow on a fixture. And a source of annoyance throughout our stay was that the toilet flush fitting fell apart and seemingly couldn't be repaired - it worked but rather awkwardly. While the hotel staff were friendly and helpful - organizing a trip for us to Shkoder in Albania, for example - there were some lapses in what was on offer. The advertised bike hire was not available - they did offer some bikes eventually but these were not safe - and of the advertised kayaks there were only two singles available since the double had been damaged and could not be repaired. It was also disappointing that if one chose to pay for meals and drinks in cash then change was sometimes not forthcoming. We have no objection to tipping but this should be our choice. Visitors should also be aware that the hotel is built on several levels on a steep slope and there is no disabled access. In all there is much to recommend this hotel but there are a few areas where the management could be improved.
