We stayed in Budva for 4 nights and although the choice was based on great reviews I must admit it didn't meet our expectations. It's true that the rooms are very clean but honestly overall it's not up to what you'd expect from a 4* hotel. First of all it's very hard to find - no signs at all. Secondly, although it's based close to city center the neighborhood is very crowded, with strange narrow streets, with no logic (actually this is a real big problem for Budva: there are a lot of very narrow streets as if everybody built their houses & fences as they liked, there is no visibility in junctions, these narrow streets have no names and the Montenegrin drivers drive as if they are lonely on the street). After you manage to find the hotel (the GPS won't help too much) you will get a much smaller room than you normally get in a regular 4*. Breakfast is again too poor for a regular 4* and the coffee is the worst I've ever had.
It's true that the rooms are very clean and that the employees have a nice attitude but this doesn't make up to justify for the price.
Moreover, Budva is not the best destination if you want to truly enjoy what Montenegro has to offer you - it's much too crowded (you'd better choose other locations - smaller cities) , the bazaar next to the beach is horrible, the central beach - Slovenska beach - is dirty and overcrowded. My recommendation is to avoid Slovenska beach and enjoy Jaz beach - less crowded, with clean beach and water and where there are not so many boats.
