Hotel Vile Oliva
Ranked #3 of 10 Hotels in Petrovac
Reviewed 15 August 2012

...Ok, so "vile" is probably overstating it, but I'm sure you can find better in Petrovac (the nearby Palace and Riveriera hotels looked a lot nicer, for example). There are some pluses - very close to beach, reception staff very welcoming and helpful, and the dining area is spacious with a large veranda. The pluses are nevertheless outweighed by the minuses - noisy (the stray dogs which practically live in the hotel grounds bark early in the morning, cars on the road outside), the food was not brilliant, the rooms are very basic, some of the dining room staff were rather unfriendly and the hotel has a very small swimming pool.

Petrovac itself is a fairly nice, medium-size resort town. There are interesting walks along the shoreline and cliffs in either direction. However, the main beach gets very busy, at least in August when we were there. It also gets pretty dirty, partly a 'cultural' issue and partly because there are hardly any rubbish bins on the beach. Lucice beach, about ten mins walk, is a slightly better option.

All of this sounds a bit negative but we actually had a great holiday despite the rather poor experience at the hotel. Montengro is a beautiful country. In between some nice days on the beach, we enjoyed trips to Kotor, Skadarsko Lake, Sveti Stefan and Cetinje/Lovcen. The weather was excellent too.

Hotel is still under construction, In the rooms you can feel the smell of the wall materials, some of the rooms are not finished (no AC, oven (for aparts), lamps) at the same time they already try to put people there. Some rooms have mold on the walls. You have to go 300-400 meters to the sea. Beach in Petrovac is extremely crowded and rather dirty.
Would avoid this hotel and town by all means.

Room Tip: Do not go there, if you end up there try to get the room in the main building it seems to be more fi...

The hotel consists of several vilas that have 6-18 rooms and apartments, all well furnished and updated. The swiming pool is more for children, not that large, while the beach is just a short walk away. The sunbeds at the beach are difficult to catch, everybody gets up in early morning, occupies the sunbeds by placing a towell on them, then return to their rooms , finish their morning sleep, go for breakfast, etc... Food is plenty and diverse, while the personel works hard to be at good standard. A special positive note for the restaurant supervisor, very atentive for details, not to just what and how they offer, but also to how it is received. (all that without fuss and useless talk, just precise and efficient). The wi-fi is free but only got signal in certain areas of the restaurant, not in the rooms or other grounds. Few tv stations in the room, still they got flat screen tv's. Parking places are also free, but few, and have to be lucky to get a spot. The all inclusive concept is not very clear, you are never sure what is included and not. The great majority of guests are from Russia, but also few westerners (germans) . Overall good choice, the better hotels are also a lot more expensive. The hotel reached our expectations without exceeding them, which is fair.

Absolutely can't agree with the previous review. Good rooms, snow-white towels. Nice pool.
Tidy garden. Friendly staff. Decent food. And even free water and soft-drinks with HB. On Crete Ireland they even didn"t give us free water for kids with HB.
The beach is really overcrowded at high season but umbrellas and beach beds are free for guests. A little bit overpriced. Quiet atmosphere.

Vi;e Oliva apartments are close to the beach but this can be very busy and hard to find a spot in high season.However just a 10min walk to the left of Vile Oliva through the woods,which is a regular pathway is a quieter beach with lovely beach cafe and fish restaurant.The apartment was spacious and clean,but very little in the way of cooking facilities.But this was not a problem for us as we had halfboard,breakfast and dinner.The food was good but a bit like 'Butlins holiday camp' at meal times, very busy and noisy.As we did not have children with us and like to relax over dinner with a bottle of wine this atmosphere was not great.However we realised by eating a little later, 9ish was best as families were finished by then.There are plenty of places to eat just a short stroll from the hotel.Vile Oliva does not have much in the way of facilities,but in saying that we had no real complaints.
