Upon arrival at the hotel Forza Mare our expectations were low having previously stayed at the hotel Astoria in Budva, another 'boutique hotel' only costing €15 less a night than the Forza Mare. Thankfully though, from the moment we arrived, this hotel surpassed our expectations.
On checking into our spacious room with side sea view (others have complained about this, but if you want full sea view you have to pay for it - €40 more per night), we were greeted with 2 complementary mini bottles of cava and a plate of fruit and this set the tone for our stay.
The location of the hotel is stunning and its private beach/jetty is by far the best on the stretch of coast.
Each and every staff member was incredibly friendly and helpful, going out of their way to talk to guests so at the end of 3 nights they felt like friends rather than staff.
Finally the food. The breakfast buffet was excellent with a wide variety of both cold and hot food, but the star is the hotel's restaurant which has a wide range of fish and seafood dishes and an extensive wine menu. The grilled octopus was the best I've ever eaten?
In short this hotel is not cheap - €160 p/n cheapest room, low season, but when you see what you're actually getting, the hotel is actually excellent value for money.
Stay at this hotel!!
