This is my first visit to Montenegro in ten years and I immediately remembered why I was avoiding this part of Adriatic, despite the overwhelming beaty of the nature and common language we speak. It all comes down to the value for money and level of service one expects in a 4 star hotel on the coast.
Hotel was chosen for a regional business meeting of mu company and we were all looking forward to spemding a couple of days on the seaside, combining work with a little bit of pleasure. To cut the long story short: the hotel staff is friendly enough, but if you have one receptionist per shift in a hotel with 800 guests, it is fair to assume that this person can't handle check in and check out, together with all te requests and complaints... So, they are overworked and slightly confused, doing their best but creating a feeling of not being efficient (I don't remember habing seen hotel staff using pencils to write room numbers in a notebook in years...).
The biggest complaints that beings back all the worst memories is the water shortage. It is beyond me how it is possible to have a hotel boasting an aquapark when you don't have water in your room to wash your hands or, God forbid, have a shower. It was a unique experience walking at 7am in my bathrobe to the room of my colleague who was on the 1st floor and had enough water dripping from the shower to help me appear decent at our 9 o'clock meeting. The explanation from the hotel staff that the problem is not with the hotel, but with the whole region is just not good enough. Again, it brings all the bad memories about water shortages in Montenegro from years and years ago and I really can't believe that it is still going on. Especially since we are now in the month of June, when the real season has not really started...
I am sorry to give such a poor review of this hotel, which has an excellent position, sandy beach and all the God given beauty that can make Montenegro a real travel destination and a pearl of Adriatic. Unfortunately, there is still a long way to go.
