Hotel review

Reviews for the One & Only Portonovi hotel, Montenegro

Unique and unique Portonovi

The area

The hotel is the star attraction of the Portonovi development, which also houses villas and secondary apartments, yacht-friendly restaurants (caviar and champagne, cognac and cigars), an art gallery and fashion boutiques, as well as its marina with 238 berths, which takes boats up to 120 meters. Hop on one of the hotel’s shiny Nesey boats to explore UNESCO-listed Boka Bay, stopping at the perfectly preserved honey-stone towns of Presat and Kotor. There are also vineyards, national parks and even Marshal Tito’s villa, all a short distance away.

The service

Infallibly helpful – from the janitor handing out forgotten iPhone chargers to breakfast servers who remember your favorite bowl of pistachio smoothie. It’s smooth, but not intrusive to wait with every move. And if you’re an oligarch who wants another plate of Locatelli’s divine truffle pasta concocted at 10:30 p.m. in your villa, well, that’s possible too.

For families

One & Only’s children’s clubs are as well thought out and fun as its hotels, and – bonus – free for all little guests. It’s no different with areas dedicated to children aged 4 to 11 (KidsOnly – inspired by Jules Verne’s “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea”, a photo of a giant Kraken above the tiny toilets) and teenagers (One Tribe – with table football, billiards and game consoles). The inspired schedule ranges from slime time to movie nights, photo treasure hunts to fort building, upcycled fashion shows to Boka Bay sleuths.

At breakfast, kids flock to the donut of the day from La Veranda’s buffet, a treat that jumps around the plate with cute rose-striped strawberry croissants, freshly baked pancakes and loads of fruit. At lunch and dinner there is also a dedicated children’s menu in Sabia (spaghetti al pomodoro and gnocchi al ragù di manzo are sure to hit the mark), and if you’re lucky, bake pizzas in the kitchen, and little ones are welcome at the Tapasake Club too (nothing too disturbing the staff pulling out wooden high chairs and chic pastel children’s plates), where our five-year-old assistant reviewer slipped grilled salmon with rice.
