The positive first:
the Big Montenegro Tour they offer is simply awesome, unforgettable and includes highlights like various view point stops at Sveti Stefan and Skadar Lake and visiting the lower and upper Ostrog Monastery (on request depending on the group - other option is Lovćen NP); lunch is not included but worth each and every Euro at the restaurant MOSTINA in Rijeka Crnojevića
The outweighing negative:
our guide transgressed my personal boundaries by talking very amused about one of his family members´ hatred for Germans - just flimsy excuses afterwards; took me two days to recover (I could smile again on the plane back home marvelling at those lush green mountains of Montenegro from above) - what a shame to think such thoughtless remarks are funny and harmless while they are nothing but hostile and provocative - I never expect to be treated like family or friends by accommodation owners, but I do expect to be shown a minimum of respect
What about accommodation at the Freedom? It is close to the main bus station, but far from the old town of Budva. The key I was given could open two lockers - so there was a security issue that bothered me, but I found a solution myself.
All in all, the Freedom is nothing special. If it was, where are all the rave reviews on this site???
