The Danica Hotel is in a perfect location in Petrovac. Just a short distance to the seaside walk where you'll find plenty of restaurants, bars and cafes. The beach is there as well, although it is very small and they have packed chairs and umbrellas on it like sardines.
The room was spacious and very well maintained. Good quality furnishing with the exception of the bed. I had requested a king, but got the typical European-push-together-2-small beds. Not ideal, but not tragic either...at least it was comfortable. AC worked well and had a lovely balcony that looks out over a stunning pine forest. (No sea view) Housekeeping was expertly done and fresh linens every day.
Parking and internet were adequate. We stayed on the first floor, so we could access the wireless, but from what I understood, the access point is really only intended for the lobby area. TV had a good channel selection and our apartment/room had stove and fridge.
The only serious complaint is the breakfast set up. Everyone is assigned a table, so it was not enjoyable for us to sit with 2 complete strangers every morning. The food was a bit rationed, but was quite good. Lots of choices on the menu and if you wanted more than the meager portion provided, it was no problem. We didn't eat dinner in the restaurant as there are a number of places available in town that had much better atmosphere sitting along the sea side.
A walking path that leads to a "secret beach" starts at the foot of the hill the Danica sits on. We took the hike and not at all worth it! Be sure to take a torch or some form of lighting to navigate the tunnels that lead to the beach. This beach is incredibly rocky and the surf was very rough. Not at all good for young children. The views on this path are incredible though, and you will not want to miss sunset overlooking the stunning bluffs. Lots of people using this path for a hike and running...well worth the effort for that!
Overall, Petrovac is a quaint little town. The main beach there was disappointing and I would not recommend staying here if you are aiming for a relaxing day in the sun. Plenty of good places to eat and drink and the Danica is certainly the best choice for the money.
