a very smart hotel with wonderful views of sveti stevfan our room was very comfortable and the breakfast was very good
a big thank you to Suzana and Sanja these girls were great and very helpful at breakfast they brought us english tea in a pot !!
the a la carte at night was quite pricey.
my husband was very upset when we arrived because no indication on the holiday site with jet2 did it inform anyone with mobility issues that it was not a suitable hotel (i had a knee replacement) and there was limited eating places near the hotel
the sun loungers were quite big fresh towels every day ,beach very clean.

Boutique hotel with very nice rooms with a view of Sveti Stephan. Great beach and service. Very good breakfast and nice restaurant and bar. The people are great, very welcoming and give very good service. Their spa is poorly located with a lot of noise in the treatments rooms

We had a really amazing time. The hotel is very charming and has really cool sea views from the room (make sure you select sea view). You are literally on the water. The town is very small and very cute.

The staff was fantastic, kind and very helpful. They also spoke English and gave great recommendations. They offered valet car service and bring your bags to and from for you given the stairs. The breakfast spread was pretty incredible. And the beach services were extremely convenient and laid back. The beach is a mix of rock and sand so make sure to bring water shoes.

Only complaints - air condition worked but it was not very strong. The sunniness from the day made the room warmer at night. We requested a king bed and for two double beds as they ran out of rooms and did not hold our king. We only stayed a couple nights so it wasn’t a deal breaker. The showers doors also are only half doors so the bathroom flooded a lot. But great water pressure and the shower was nice.

Overall fantastic stay!

I had issues with my room on arrival where they gave me the wrong room from which I booked. They did transfer me to another room which was tiny and my mountain views were off a car park (see photo). The beach was nice however anyone and everyone could wander on to the beach and use the beach beds. People also left towels to secure the beach beds from dawn. The beach towels were filth - they gave me a used wet beach towel to use! There’s no beach bar service as advertised but there is an amazing beach bar next door. The hotel is definitely a 2/3 star hotel. I’d have been pleased if that’s what I booked.

The restaurant food was indelible (and I’m not that picky). It took up to an hour once for a drink order to be taken. The only saving grace was their staff (and it’s very understaffed!). They were friendly and courteous but very overworked. There were multiple people complaining about their rooms at reception daily. Give this hotel a wide berth.

Awful Lunch at the Beach Bar !
1 hour waiting time for a Tuna Salad made of 90% of Green Salad. No care, no understanding… the manger seamed to be totally not involved and concerned . He only responded that the the service was busy while half of the table were empty
I do not recommend at all !

We looooved this hotel and place - we travel a lot and Hotel California is world class - an amazing setting in front of Sveti Stefan, the hotel has brilliant and friendly staff. From the moment we arrived everyone went out of their way with quality service. Where else in Europe do you get a spectacular beach set in front of a medieval castle with a guarateed sun chair at no charge, The restaurant is good honest local fare and again, lovely staff who are happy and genuine. The rooms are very clean and modern but the thing that most impresses are the hotel staff. Well worth the effort - from beginning to end 10 out of 10!!!!!!

We stayed for 5 days. Excellent breakfast, and very welcoming staff. You can enjoy the breakfast at the outdoor setting, a very nice start to a beautiful day. You can choose the rooms with the amazing sea view. We had no problem with parking.

Gorgeaus small hotel on the beach at Sveti Stefan. Stylish rooms, nice open dining space, comfortable sunbeds. Very clean and spacious beach area with enough sunbeds and comfortable sunbeds space. Food is delicious. Quite at nights. For party lovers, not far away from Budva.
