...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.
