I really liked the views from this hotel especially on the rooftop deck. We had room 19 which did have a tree blocking part of the view from our balcony but honestly there was plenty of view. The neighboring hotel was a bit close on the south side so maybe a room on the other side might be better for privacy on the balcony. Our room had a kitchenette with table and sitting room and separate bedroom. There were minimal utensils in the kitchen but we were able to get whatever we needed from upstairs in the restaurant. The included breakfast is very minimal in variety but I liked it. It was 2 kinds of cereal and several meats and cheeses all very good.
The staff were all very nice and helpful. There was wireless internet available also which was nice.
The beach is a long way down the stairs. It wasn't really an issue though because there are lots of places to stop and admire the view if you want or you could look at it as exercise. The beach itself is pebbles and they get smaller closer to the causeway to the island. Lots of beach chairs with umbrellas are available for 10 euros/day.
We did go onto the island once and it is under renovation with all the buildings filled with rubble. The little church was holding services and the priest was outside talking to the people. We also visited the monastery nearby which was interesting to me for the use of space on the steep hillside for the graveyard.
We visited Budva many times as we had rented a car at the airport. The hotel had plenty of parking right in front. Budva however is very tight on parking in the evenings but with patience the lots have a lot of turnover and you don't have to wait long for a spot. I recommend visiting the old city in the day and in the evening and there are many nice places to eat there. There is a sort of boardwalk or promenade area along the shore outside the old city with restaurants and discos. We did not try the beaches in Budva as they looked crowded and the one in Sveti Stephan was very nice. One caution if you swim around the island is there are Sea Urchins and if you step on them it is painful so some footwear is good. I did not see any in the swimming area though.
We also visited Kotor and Dubrovnik on this trip with their old cities.
