Hotel Rivijera
Ranked #8 of 10 Hotels in Petrovac
Reviewed May 16, 2013

Stayed here for one night in May 2013 and found it to be a lovely hotel with facilities and rooms of a much more expensive hotel. The staff were friendly, and the food was good. Seemed to be perfect for couples with young children or retired people - so the perfect place to take the children and their grandparents. Cute beaches, bars and restaurants nearby too.

The only limitation of this is hotel is that currently there are a lot of other hotels being built nearby which means there is some industrial noise intruding on an otherwise tranquil place.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the opposite side from the building works

We spent a week at the Hotel Rivijera in April 2012. The season had just started and for most of the time we were literally the only guests in the hotel. I understand why people don't choose to come in April - we were a bit unlucky with the (grey and rainy) weather. Hotel staff told us that from May on you can usually count on good weather. Seeing that the hotel was still being prepared for the season, I cannot comment on some services. Unfortunately, the kids club was not yet operational. The hotel is in the centre of (the small) town on very well maintained grounds. There's a tennis court, a small pool, a terrace for the restaurant and bar and enough space around the two hotel buildings. It's true that you will not get a sea view from any of the rooms, but the beach is just a few metres away from the hotel, not even a five minute walk. The hotel was very well maintained and all seemed new and well maintained. our family room had a separate bedroom and a large balcony. Functional and quality furnishing, very comfortable. As far as food is concerned, since we were the only guests, it was all made for us, so I cannot comment on the buffet other guests would have. But the food was always tasty and well prepared. The dining room boasted quite a few high chairs for kids, so you avoid wars with other families over the high chair. Staff were very friendly and attentive. There is a small gym. It is basically a converted room with five a few exercise machines (treadmill, elliptic trainer, exercycle, etc.). A nice bar/smokers' room looked nice to spend the odd evening over a game of chess. There is fast wifi access in the lobby and one computer for public use. I also saw children car seats, probably for the rental cars. Petrovac as a town is quite small and there seems to be little going on except for the beach and the hotels and restaurants, so best to come by car or rent one to get out a bit. But I can see how you can easily spend a week at the hotel in full season when all services are available. All in all, I would recommend the Rivijera. it is good value for money and a very well maintained pleasant hotel for a comfortable stay. I would go again.

Stayed here with HF Holidays October 2011. My main complaint is that the AC in this hotel does not work properly. Firstly I had to make a fuss to get any AC as when I checked in the AC was not working at all. My room was 27 degrees during the day and maybe went down to 24-25 at night. The outside temperature during the day was 30 degrees. The outside doors to the dining room were always left open, I assume to try and keep the heat down but unfortunately this let the flies in to crawl all over the buffet.

This hotel is close to the beach which is quite nice but no sea views. The grounds are lovely and the promenade/shops are only a few steps away.

Room Tip: Not on the south side if it's hot

We enjoyed a very pleasant week here. The staff are cheerful and really helpful and the hotel and grounds are spotlessly clean. The buffet food is good and plentiful with an abundance of fruit. The rooms are a good size but the AC struggles when it is really warm. The evening entertainment was enjoyable. There is a choice of beaches, the nearest is very close.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the pool will allow you to enjoy the evening entertainment from your balcony.

Friendly staff, good buffet food which they took a pride in; nice, spacious grounds just behind but thankfully separated from the busy beach. Pleasant entertainment every evening. Hotel's A/C was working but was not a match for the late July temperature ("hottest they had ever known it" - isn't it always thus?) so nights were a bit sticky.
WARNING. Hotel hires out its own cars. The staff know almost nothing about the insurance but by our careful reading of the terms there is no theft cover, the hirer being expected to provide a replacement. Thus we hired one from Gulliver of Budva as we had done during the previous week when staying at a hotel near there. [The late hiring of a car from UK had proved totally impracticable; Montenegro is simply not geared up to this yet].
Attractive country for touring around in; a commercial day tour into Albania was interesting. Our coach had a way of jumping the queue at the border, essential to avoid what looked like a 3-hour experience for the ordinary motorist.

My parents have just returned from their vocation in this hotel. Despite they liked the hotel itself, especially for the grove that helps older people to feel comfortable during hot weather, the service and staff itself were awful. They had 100% prepaid room, but hotel could provide neither the room that they have paid fore, nor any room int his hotel at all!! They had to spend a few days in other hotel, far away in the mountains before they could finally got the room thay have paid for upfront. So be careful as the hotel may be overbooked and be ready to face unfriendly hotel staff.

Petrovac it selves open his "gate" right to the entrance with much peace and quietness. Small houses well outside decorated and plenty flowers comforts right in the beginning. Riviera surprises with the great park and the pool under the tree and short plants. Easy and plenty parking, warm welcome, smile and helpful staff make this place a preferable choice. Two days are not much, but we enjoyed our stay there as a an unforgotten brake. Looks hotel has been well refurbishing and rooms has been well decorated.
Sea view rooms are not that much in the hotel, but even less in number hotel provided correctly our order via phone call. The big tree outside very near with the balcony mixes with the sea view behind brings a really holiday feeling.
For us was excellent stay as start of the holidays. Sea is only 50-70 m far from the hotel and the bay of Petrovac it selves brings special magic sea view. We are not sure if hotel covers part of the sea side for its customs, but we found a great opportunity by ourselves at this days. The evening brought an other surprise on the park of the hotel with a great performance of a indigenous singers. Very soft and well performed the hits of ex Yugoslavia on years 80.
Food typically on the Balkan choking style, they should perform more on it that holidayer should remember something special. We suggest this hotel for weekends and short term holidays!!

Room Tip: Look to the rooms of third floor with the sea view. (let say part sea view.)
