Hotel Perla
Ranked #1 of 18 Hotels in Herceg-Novi
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 4 July 2012

Perla, no doubt, is one of the best hotel in Herceg Novi harbor and Kotor Bay. We spent here unforgettable 2 weeks holiday and stayed in apartment in the main building. The hotel staff is exceptionally friendly and helpful. Girls on reception desk are ready to answer all of your questions. The restaurant and beach teams work fast and perfectly. The food and its’ variety is excellent. We took half board (breakfast dinner, both buffets) and were never leaving the restaurant unsatisfied with quality/quantity of food. You can also try numerous restaurants along the Herceg Novi promenade alley.
The hotel has its’ own beach (concrete platform) – ideal entrance to the water for those who can swim, otherwise, or in case you have young children, in order to enter the see you can use the beach of the neighbor hotel (fine pebble). The water in the sea was amazing and relatively clean, sometimes with patches of sea grass at the surface, but without traces of any organic garbage, despite of the fact that huge cruise liners are passing by to Kotor bay few times a day. No rough sea or big waves during whole our stay, because the Bay is naturally fenced from open sea. If you travel by car Herceg Novi is a good starting point to explore the country. There are many remarkable see-sights in Montenegro. The entrance to the hotel’s closed parking is rather troublesome, but I would not call it as a disadvantage of the hotel, because a majority of roads in Montenegro are narrow. The hotel staff used all available means to make the entrance/exit for your car as easy as possible. WIFI was free and available in our room and all public places near main building. Beds are comfortable, bed linen is changed once per 2 days. The perfect place to relax.

After driving around Albania and Montenegro for 2 weeks, this was the perfect place to end our vacation. The hotel understands tourism and does it well. It is located on the 7 kilometer promenade that goes into town, with bars and restaurants along the way. However, the restaurant is very good and you can sign up for half board free if you stay for 3 nights or more. Breakfast is always included and it is a nice buffet. You can sit inside the restuarant or out in a covered open air restaurant overlooking Kotor Bay. The view is beautiful. You can get a room with a balcony overlooking the bay, also. Highly recommended! The "beach" is concrete, however they do have padded chairs, umbrellas and ladders into the water.

Room Tip: Turn on the water heater before you take a shower!

We have spent one night in this hotel. The beach is just 10 meters from the hotel, and there is a very nice promenade from the hotel to the old city. The view from the room was just great. Service was good as well. The breakfast is really good, with a nice terrace just up to the beach.
Herceg Novi is to me a very good place to visit the Kotor's area.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel as a base for exploring Montenegro. Our room was average in size and very clean. We had a small balcony that overlooked the sea front. The hotel was a 25 minute walk away from the Old Town. As my husband had injured his ankle, we often took the cab into the old town and the journey never cost more than 2 euros. From the bus station, we took the bus to Budva and Kotor, which proved to be easy and cheap. Staff at the hotel were welcoming and helpful. However, there was an incident regarding confusion over a missing item, which was resolved straight away. This wouldn't stop me from staying here again. This hotel was lovely for a relaxing break. We found it too quiet for our liking. If we return to Montenegro, we would stay in Budva or Sven Stefani as it is a bit more livelier.

We stayed at Hotel Perla, perfect location overlooking the Adriatic.We had a standard room which had what I would call Utility furniture. No handles on the cupboards and a rather small bathroom. having said that the room was kept spotlessly clean and we got clean towels daily..

The food was varied but just never hot even when we went down for evening dinner at 7pm prompt the food was lukewarm. Tea and coffe are not included with dinner. They do not do an English Breakfast although there were fried eggs and only occasionally bacon. If you wanted toast.you had to request it. If they want to encourage more British visitors then I think they should review this.

It was very quiet during our visit and although we are in our 50's we would have liked it a bit livelier. We frequented a local bar Splendido's who sold the local draught beer very cheap at 2euros, cocktails 2.80 euros.

Walking along the promenade is a lovely experience and has the best views of the surrounding mountains. To get into town involves a hike of about 20 minutes and is quite a climb.

We took 4 excursions and I would recommend them all. The first was a Kotor Bay tour cost 20 euros and we were out from 10am to 6pm. The cost included a drink of the local brandy, wine, bread, cheese and salad. A stop at the Lady of the Rock. Then onto Perast 1/2 hour. Kotor Old Town 2 hours.

Next excursion a Montenegro tour cost 36 euros with stops at various places such as Cetinje and Lovcen. Scenery was amazing.

3rd Excursion was to Dubrovnik cost 20 euros which was just a transfer which dropped you off at the Old Town and the day was your own. We walked the walls which can be quite steep in places not helped by it being a hot day but worth it for the great views of the City and Harbour.

Finally, and what we thought the best was a visit to Skadar Lake. Cost 46 euros. Took over an hour to get there from H.N. Once on the boat you are given the local brandy and then as much wine as you want plus cheese and donoughts with honey. (Delicious). A trip around the Lake for 2 hours with stunning scenery and lunch in a local restaurant which consisted of soup, bread, salad and a main meal of either fish or meat.Excellent value.

One disappointment to us, the local people who we found quite ignorant, you rarely got a smile from them. They did not seem very courteous to each other either. travelling on the local buses was an eye opener. Bags were put on empty seats leaving passengers having to stand. People sitting on aisle seats so that passengers could not sit down. The buses although very cheap would not have been classed as roadworthy in the UK.. Certainly an experience.

Despite these niggles we had a thoroughly enjoyable time and couldn't believe what a great value holiday it was. We actually had spending money left at the end of our trip.

Room Tip: request a higher floor with sea view

I think the last reviewer - KC2604 - must have got this hotel mixed up with another one. I stayed there in February and didn't see a gym at all, nor do I see one on the website. And the rooms were average in size for a hotel of this price range. Perhaps KC2604 stayed in one of the annexes? But they don't seem to have a gym either.
I liked every aspect of the hotel but was only there for one night. I'm going back next month and will write a fuller review after that.

We were very disappointed by this hotel and would not recommend to anyone to stay here. The photographs and information on their website are misleading. The rooms and bathrooms are incredibly small, so is the balcony. The service from the reception staff was very poor, except for one staff member who was friendly and knowledgeable. Most of the others treated you like you were an inconvenience. The gym does not look remotely like the one shown on the website. The equipment was old and rusty and not in working condition. Most of the time the gym was locked and not accessible. The food at the restaurant is not worth eating. We only ate lunch there once and the fish was over-cooked and tasteless. The wait staff were rude, with the exception of one young wait staff member who was very friendly and was more then happy to arrange an ice-bucket and wine glasses for our room. Pool towels are available, however you must leave a 40Euro deposit, cash only, returned when you return the towels. This hotel is quite some distance from the centre of town. My husband and I are very fit, and it would take us around 20-25mins to walk along the broad walk to the centre. There are much better restaurants located there, and the visitors information booth is very helpful and recommended some great restaurants.

Overall, I was not impressed with the service or facilities of this hotel. I would not stay here again. If I visit Montenegro another time, I would not stay in Herceg-Novi, but somewhere further into the lake district .
