“Nice hotel, quiet location close to seaside”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

I see very mixed opinions on this hotel... We have stayed there for four nights and the overall experience was very good:
-it's very quiet but at the same time close to the the main road.
-it doesn't have a private beach but there are sunbeds for exclusive use of Hotel de Lara residents.
-the pool is very nice and well maintained. As the hotel is small, there were never many people there
-the staff was helpful and friendly
-there was a small kitchenette with basic equipment. You cannot plan full-fledged cooking there, but for a breakfast and light lunch was just about enough.
-Wifi was available in rooms and in the restaurant.

as for the cons:
-the rooms were not really cleaned every day (they just emptied the thrash bins)
-bathroom smelled a bit dump, but this is quite common in this area.

All the staff were very helpful, and friendly. Pool was great. Everywhere was spotlessly clean. Nice restaurant with good food. Apartment was spacious, with balcony and great sea views.
Good base for exploring southern Montenegro, Lake Skadar, Ulcinj, Stari Bar, all worth a visit.

Room Tip: Two bed apartments with balcony seemed best, ours on the ground floor was great. Some had smaller b...

We reserved a room with an online hotels site and got an email confirmation. Tried to call the hotel for good measure, but the phone number listed on our confirmation wasn't even the right country. When we arrived, we were told the hotel canceled our reservation 15 minutes after it was made. They did not email or call us to notify us, and didn't help us find another hotel, even though it was late and we had two children and two 75 year old ladies with us. They said they had canceled 5 other reservations the same day. Questionable business practices.

Room Tip: Don't book here. There's plenty of options in Ulcinj with much better service.

We stayed here for one night in July.

Fairly easy to find off the highway, big sign with the hotel name, probably even a couple of signs if my memory serves me right along the road for 100m or so, just keep an eye for them.

Now the hotel:

Positives:

Large pool and sun beds.
Private little beach 5 minutes walk away that public can access, but De Lara has private beds there for the use of hotel residents only.
Restaurant staff very pleasant and fairly attentive.
Wifi, although not great.
Nice view over the sea whilst sitting on restaurant/bar veranda.

Negatives:

Room smelt very badly of damp and a used condom was in the bathroom bin.
Shared balcony with the room next door who decided to commandeer it.
Reception seemed very interested, almost aggressive, to get payment from us as soon as we had arrived – show some manners!
Room was clean, but bathroom didn’t feel it – didn’t want to shower now walk bare foot in there.

For 55 euros, there is probably better, but for the stay we needed in that area the hotel was satisfactory. If you do have other options available to you, give them a go, if not staying here will not kill you.

Room Tip: Ask for your bins to be emptied before you move in!
