MONTENEGRO HOLIDAY REPORT

PU3A Travel Club (Europe)

Montenegro (All Inclusive) 03.05.18 – 10.05.2018

Pick-Up times 6.30-6.45.7.00

Staying at – IBEROSTAR BELLEVIEW, BECICI BUDVA MONTENEGRO Once all the passengers were on board the coach and the journey commenced, I soon realised the pick-up times were far too late, traffic needless to say was heavy but our Coach Driver Nick was excellent. Timing was tight however, we were fortunate on this occasion our flight was delayed which gave us all some breathing space.

Once on board we could relax. Unfortunately Beverage Service was rather slow and only reached a couple of our seating rows when it had to finish as we had reached our destination.

We cleared Baggage Collection, Passport Control and Immigration without a hitch. We walked out into the afternoon sunshine to be met by Peter (the local Representative of Kompaas). Baggage and Passengers were taken to the coach.

The next seven days were perfect. A wonderful hotel, excellent Staff, Cordon Bleu Food served from 7.30 am to 9.30pm. Soft drinks from 7.30am to 11.00pm. Alcoholic Drinks from 11am to 12pm. Who could ask for anything more.

The hotel is located between the Balkan Mountains and the Adriatic Sea. The hotel was built close to the sea shore and everyone took advantage of a daily walk by the seaside, for the fitter members a walk into the old town of Budva

We also had three full day excursions.

  • TIVAT and cruised the Bay of Kotor then enjoyed a freshly cooked Fish Lunch at a local restaurant which was included.
  • SKADAR LAKE the largest lake in the Balkans with rare birds including Pelicans, fish species. A fish lunch was also included.
  • The third days visit was to DUBROVNIK a World Heritage Site. I had visited some years ago on another PU3A holiday. I noticed a lot of work had taken place to make it once again a walled city. I climbed the stone steps high onto the battlements along with a number of my PU3A colleagues. The bay views were magnificent around another bend we were looking at ancient houses with sun terraces with beautiful flower pot filled with plants and trees. It was fascinating to realise whilst home to many citizens it was still a fort and a walled city.
  • As with all holidays it was time to say goodbye to the Management and Staff of the Hotel, we thanked them for looking after us so well. The Deputy Director made a little speech saying how delighted the Hotel was to have us as guests. I returned the compliment saying how much we had enjoyed ourselves. I made a presentation on behalf of PU3A members and made our way by coach back to the airport and home.
