A block from the main boulevard and no more than 10 minutes' walk from the beach is this lovely family-run hotel.
My tour company mixed up my transfer and delivered me to another property with a similar name, but when they sorted it out, Branko at the Hotel Oliva in Budva was there to meet me as I stepped out of the cab. He immediately said that he will trreat me to a welcome drink, as well as a free dinner - to compensate for all the mix-up - despite his having caused none of it. This is just Branko's amazingly friendly attitude.
For the first night, he had to put me up in a neighbouring hotel that he uses as an overflow, but he carried my luggage there for me, and while I was having breakfast the next morning, he discreetly retrieved my luggage and brought it back to the Oliva, and took it up to my room.
He loves talking with his guests, and so does his wife. Their courtesy and hospitality were of the highest standard for my 4 nights there. The room was small, but spotlessly clean, carefully serviced each day and beautifully air-conditioned.
Branko took extra care to install me into room 2, which he knew would be quieter for me.
DInners there are beautiful, and the buffet breakfast is also a pleasure, especially dining in his charming and leafy courtyard.
Branko's service comes from the heart. It is defintely of a 5-star standard with a 3-star price.
