    Nothing!

    The customer service and quiet aspect. Must use the Maki Apartments airport shuttle service or car hire as prices are far lower than at airport! Good evening meals prepared and delivered by a super friendly family, if you don't want to cook much? But if you do cook for yourself? Every possible implement is in your apartment. You won't need for anything. fabulous.

    This is more an observation than a criticism but you absolutely need a car - public transport is practically nonexistent. Once you have a car though you are well placed to visit Kotor, Sveti Stefan, Dubrovnik, etc.

    Owners / staff were very friendly and helpful. Maki also ran their own car hire service. The property was ten minutes walk away from an excellent beach. I would highly recommend.

    A very nice apartments in a good quiet place. Close to the best beach in Montenegro (7-10 mins walking). The owners are really nice people, very helpful and careful. You can get a taxi to any place of the country for just 10-15 EUR or rent a car downright in the apartments. The owners also offer breakfast and dinner in the apartments. We have dinner only one time as the kitchen is fully equipped, we cooked by ourselves and traveled a lot, so we didn't even have time to try everything. We've tried grilled fish and it was excellent. I strongly recommend the place for everyone, who is looking for nice and cozy apartment in a beautiful and quiet place with nice atmosphere.

    First of all, I would like to say many-many-many thanks to Maki Apartments team, especially to Nemanja and Zorica for their such kind and lovely welcome and attitude! It was really great experience for us to enjoy such attitude, as we felt ourselves so comfortably, like in big family. Nemanja, Zorica and their family and team made all possible and impossible to make our vacation and stay at Maki really pleasant. It is really important. As a side note, delicious dinners cooked by Zorica should be pointed out! Also there are a lot of other positives about staying at Maki Apartments, such as: 1. Apartments themselves. Clean and comfortable rooms, with all the things needed for perfect family vacation are available therein. Moreover, all our questions and requests were smoothly responded by Zorica and Nemanja. 2. Location. Maki Apartments are situated on the outskirts of town of Radovici, not far from Tivat and Tivat airport (15 minutes driving) in picturesque and quiet place. This is a perfect place for family vacation with little children. 3. Beach and nature. Plavi Horizonti Beach is 700 metres from Maki Apartments. This is a breathtaking place - environmentally pristine beach, awarded with Blue Flag. Clean water, fresh maritime air, all necessary facilities make one's stay pleasant and useful. Walking from Maki to Plavi Horizonti Beach one can enjoy lovely nature. One advice - if anybody is planning vacation with little children, it is highly recommended to take a baby stroller, since 700 metres can be somewhat long way for children. There is still option with car rent that may be kindly provided by Maki Apartments team.

    I liked friendly environment provided by the staffs. Their service fulfilled my criteria as I was expecting. It was prompt and up to the mark. I have no chaplains. I would definitely recommend it to the people who are willing to visit Tivat.

    We were greeted by the family and Lilliana who spoke excellent English and they gave us a fantastic welcome to their home, with welcome drinks and helping us with advice about where to go for the beach etc. They were so helpful and lovely and could not do enough for us. This apartment is perfect beach accommodation, being the closest building to the beautiful Plavi Horizontli beach. It is not luxurious, but we had not expected that. We walked down the hill to the beach - but although not too far it is a bit of a climb on the way back - so don't do it in the heat. Parking was a few Euros at the bottom of the hill, and there is a cafe and all beach facilities there (and sand). It was an excellent beginning to our holiday with snorkelling in the sea and caves - we saw and octopus !!! For our evening meal the family provided us with a huge meal of fantastic grilled fish - tasted beautiful - with potatoes and a huge tomato salad - with juice or wine if you prefer. This supper on the balcony was really fantastic and I agree with other reviewers that there is no need to go into Radovici to eat. Thankyou all so much for making our first night in Montenegro so delightful.

    Best place in Montetegro for a family vacation” 5 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago I've spent in Maki apartments 3 weeks (from 26 June till 18 August 2015) together with my 6y daughter and my friend with her daughter (7 y). This vacation was above expectation and mainly thanks to the outstanding hospitality of the owners of these apartments - Zorica & Dragon and their 3 sons. Our hosts have organized great excursions for our small team (Boka-Kotor sea trip, Ostrog, Cetine, Vrmac etc) - we had an activity once per 2 days thanks to their efforts. And it was a great pleasure to talk to them - I've never met such people, that treat you and your kids as members of their own family. Besides this, Zorica is a great cook and her lunches were uncomparible with other restourants in Radovici. Maki possesses best location towards a beach in Radovici + good service + smart neighbours (apartments are family oriented, but I was glad to meet handsome people with the same interests). I'll recommend everyone to stay there. Katya K

    The house was a little dirty. Next to the beach but in the city center there is almost nothing to do.

    We liked the kindness of the owner. We had dinner cooked from the wife and it was good.

    The location was ideal. It is difficult to find at night since it is a residential street. There is a sign and it is on the right side when coming from the Kotor Bay area. It is quiet and safe to park your car. The apt's are simple, clean, and there is a stack of soft towels in various sizes. The kitchen has everything you could possibly need. Though you are not in one of the touristy places itself, like Kotor, Tivat or Budva, you are a short drive away and the reasonable pricing makes it worth while. The views from all apt's on the 2 floor building have views of the garden between homes, the mountains in the distance or the surrounding area. It is not about the views, though the terraces have ample space and lines for drying laundry. It is about the location. You can walk to the lovely sand beach in 15 minutes and have an excellent lunch or dinner at the only restaurant on the beach. I highly recommend the grilled mussels. The clear water is shallow and you can walk out for quite a while. It is phenomenal for swimming. There are lounge chairs and umbrellas which are free when not in season. Ice cream is sold at a stand. The owner is very friendly, but does not speak English, however, her son and daughter-in-law speak perfect English and live on site. They are very low key and accommodating. I highly recommend Maki Apartments.

    We stayed at the Maki Apartments during a trip to Montenegro on our honeymoon. The hosts are wonderful and extremely accommodating. I highly recommend the optional dinner. It is a true (and delicious) home cooked meal. The potatoes and fish were some of the best I have ever had. The apartment is a great value and the location couldn’t be better. Maki is the single closest establishment to Plavi Horizonti beach and it is also very easy to visit both Kotor Bay and Budva. We slept well and the area is very peaceful. Wifi worked with no issues. I would definitely recommend and stay here again!

    a functional and clean space but nothing more; too hot to sit on the terrace - especialy on the second floor, so you should stay in the room or leave it for the city; you have to drive always: for the beach Orizonti, for Kotor or Budva; no entertainment place arround; wi-fi is much more a desire than a reality; an off-road around the building, like in the countryside; If you walk to the beach, it takes 15-20 minutes.

    Very strong smell from plumbing. The water pressure was minimal. Isolation was poor. Everything was just old. Desperately needs renovation.

    The maki appartments employee tried everything in her power to make us feel welcome but the room had only the absolute minimum conditions. The location is good but you should only go there if you accept VERY simple accomodations.

    If you are lazy and drive to the beach then it is a 3 euro charge. It's better to just walk down. You need to share the terrace although you do have your own spot with table, chairs, etc. (it wasn't a problem for us but for others it might be)

    Great position. Our flat was in the top floor with beautiful views all the way to the Crna Boka (not all the flats have this view). You get exactly what is shown on the website. It was only a short walk down to the very family friendly, if not awfully busy, Blue Horizon Beach. It was not luxury but perfect for us and we lengthened our stay by an extra 3 nights. We liked the flat and area especially because there were not many western tourists and because it was easy to get around Montenegro from there. We managed to do a number of drives to all corners of the country using this place as a base. The dinner offered by Maki is excellent and great value for money. We had the fish and chicken both of which were polished clean. There is a fresh fish salesman that stops by in the morning and calls out that he has fresh fish (Ribe) for sale. We had no problem using English. The playground is good for young kids. We saw turtles on a number of occasions just down from the flat. The Wi-Fi works but only when near the router. It didn't bother us as we were not there for the internet. We are sure to go again as we have fallen in love with Montenegro.
