“Room standards at Hotel definitely not 4 Star.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2013

The room standard at the sea view room we paid for at this hotel was definitely not 4 star.
A walk in shower had been built on to the existing bathroom and shower, which really compromised the room space.There was approx. 12 inches of clothes rail in total in the wardrobe which is ridiculous for 2 people. It barely took my wife's clothes and I ended up hanging mine on the towel rails in the bathroom.
All of the cupboard latches underneath the TV and enclosing the mini bar were broken and pieces of cardboard had been wedged in the top of each door to keep them closed. These continually fell out and the doors flew open and you were continually banging your legs on them.The cleanliness of the room was just as poor.
We complained and were moved to a suite which was very nice but we lost our sea view because these are built on top of the restaurant but set back about 10 metres so all you can see is a thin strip of water and then all sky.
The location of the hotel is superb and the facilities are fine but beware of the room standards.
Also if you are on a Thompson's holiday the pick up time for your Sunday return, because of their very early flights and 3 hour transfer, is 6 am and you'll need a wake up call at 5 am. If there is a wedding at the hotel on the Saturday night, as there was with us,you wont get much sleep as the music is very loud really and doesn't go off until 1 am.This would be OK normally if you didn't have to get up at 5 am. Not the hotel's fault - maybe Thompson's for their flight timings

i with my friends stayed in these hotel for 4 days.the food was terrible,the salads were very poor and the sweets were not good. The rooms , is true are very spacious but the towels were very old and some even torn. Wi-fi was with extra payment.Also they give you a card for spa and towels in pool and beach and if you loose it you have to pay to them 30 EUROS.

I must say the locations the rooms and the beach made a perfect vacation location, the staff was friendly and helpful and took care of all the needs, the hotel is with in walking distance from the old city giving you a perfect experience and access to night life and good food, I would add move vegetarian fast food options but in general it is a great place to stay

Room Tip: spend the extra money and get a sea side room :-)

Just back from two weeks at the avala hotel and villas, there are good and bad points about this hotel the location is great, the main hotel is kept spotlessly clean , the staff are all friendly and very helpful, as for the no food or drink policy we saw people walking past reception with bottles of water, pizzas etc and no one challenged them , I think as long are you are not flaunting the fact that you are bringing in your own food and drink by eating it in public places like reception the pool or the beach they are fine, we booked a standard room with a sea view which we paid a lot of money for, the check in was very quick and went smoothly the hotel does take one hundred Euros deposit which is refunded if you have nothing to pay on your account at the end of your stay, we arrived at our room on the 6th floor and I could have cried when entered it the room looked like it have been totally trashed the wall paper was torn the furnisher was chipped the doors wouldn’t open and some wouldn’t close, we promptly went back to reception and asked for our room to be changed fortunately the manager was standing there and asked what the problem was we told him about the state of our room and that we expected more from a 4 star hotel, especially for the money we had paid, he then offered our a superior room, which we took, on the 1st floor overlooking the old town. The room and bathroom and terrace was huge, this did make a difference to our stay, having said that the cleaning of the rooms left a lot to be desired, it’s a pity that the standard of cleanliness for the rooms isn’t the same as the cleaning of the public areas, the breakfast served in Bruno’s restaurant was really good, but take a tip from us don’t go half board as the food served in the villa restaurant was cold, repetitive and frankly not very good, you are fine if you like salads, also the restaurant is up 3 escalators and then you have a flight stairs before you reach it two of the escalators work, one never worked the two week were in the hotel. But apart from these problems we enjoyed our two weeks in Budva the people of Montenegro and very friendly and helpful we had some really good nights in what we called the Harley Davidson bar, the staff were really lovely and Friendly, we also found Budva very safe and did not feel at all intimated when we were there, we used the local buses to go to kotor and this was very easy.

Room Tip: don't choose a standard room they are very small

First the great news - Avala has aquired the Richarda Glava beach. So the guests do not have to go to Mogren 2 anymore. (But Moggen 2 is the best beach anAvala has even new bathjtowels - fresh anf they change it every day for you.. So they listened to the critics.
yway 15 euro for the 2 beds on the front).
Second - we were so pleased with hotel services. I had a halv a bottle of rare red wine that got broken in my suitcase on the way to Budva. *All my shirts and pants were ruined. We came late at night. I left my clothes at 8.30 day after and at 15.00 same day I got all my clothes back. White ands shiny.
There are some evil comments on hotel policies about taking in food. Just putting a hasselnut on the table results in mirriads of small ants and insects coming in 15 minutes. Do you really want your hamsandwich and chips on the balcony? The stuff is good and friendly and you can take your own water with you.. We loved the breakfest - it was the best time of the day
