Pros: I love the location. The Villa is situated on a small hill a few hundred meters from the Uvac lake. From my balcony I could see the lake and the mountains in the background. The view was breathtaking. My host Milica was super friendly and helpful. She suggested I take a boat tour on the lake and I accepted. A boat came on the lake beach near the hotel, picked me up and together with a few dozen of other people took me on the tour of the lake, its cave and a viewpoint above the lake. I met a lot of nice people and had the most fun ever. Food is great too - only organic veggies and meat.

Pros: The host Milica was fabulous, helpful, accomodating and made us feel like we were at home. She even made us a birthday cake that was phenomenal. The view was amazing and the house was clean and cozy. Milica scheduled a boat trip which was fun. The nature around the house was amazing.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Nice and quite location with great view, very comfortable and clean apartment. Restaurant is having very good food. Waiter Borko was very pleasant and was always trying to do as much as he can for us.
Cons: Working hours of restaurant was weird, breakfast was starting at 8 and they were closing at 8, so you had to have very early dinner. The policy is that you cannot bring food from outside to the room, which is more problematic since you need to finish with dinner till 8PM. Entrance to the restaurant was only from the outside which is not practical in winter days when you need to dress fully just to go to breakfast. Stairs weren't clean always, once I almost fell down due to icy stairs while holding baby in my hands.

8.3 Excellent
Pros: The staff is amazing, good conversations at the terrace. Very good place to meet people. The decoration is amazing with all the things related with war. Good breakfast and the bed was comfortable.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: Staff was very friendly, they checked us after midnight, as we have requested (even that it said on booking that checkin closes at 10PM) . Hostel has nice specific design, they have phone chargers public available in the kitchen, some games and books. It's clean there, fresh bed linen. Good breakfast. Thank you!
Cons: No parking, you leave your car on the street, but probably that's common for hostels. No power sockets available to each bed, I was not able to charge my phone during the night
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We were so surprised by this hostel. We booked a room extremely last minute and turned up very late. Everyone working there was so accommodating and helpful. Although the private room we booked turned out to be unavailable, we were given a dorm room to ourselves. Everything was very clean and the bed sheets smelt so fresh! The staff were very knowledgeable of the area and helped us to find somewhere to eat super late at night! We had a delicious breakfast in the morning and were not rushed to leave at all. The showers and toilets were very clean.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Excellent vale spot with friendly helpful staff.Nicely Yugoslavia themed as well. A nice free breakfast too.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: All the staff were really friendly and helpfull. I made the most out of my 2 night stay in Uzice because of their tips, and they gave me some free drinks. My own food tip: Restaurant Moja Reka. It's at the complete opposite side of Uzice (but having said that, Uzice is not that big) but I ate like an absolute king there for only 13 euro including a tip. Also try the tunnel that is near Moja Reka. If you walk 1 or 2 km and go through a few more other tunnels, you can see a big dam / waterfall. Pretty cool.
Cons: The towels were really small. I get it: eco, so less laundry. But this went too far in my opinion. I'd rather use a bigger towel for multiple days. One other thing, from my perspective this hostel has one inherent flaw: The living room and kitchen are in the middle, and all the rooms are connected directly to it without any corridor. So before the official quiet time at 23:00 of 24:00 or whatever, it would probably be hard to get some sleep. Probably this same scenario applies to a lot of other hostels (I'm no expert), but I have seen better layouts nonetheless.

9.5 Excellent
Pros: Location and beautiful setting, breakfast was well served and sufficient, waiting and bar staff very responsive to re-stock buffet. Although there was no tea or hot water for tea ( only coffee) bar staff happily provided boiling water for English tea we always take with us. We were also upgraded to huge apartment with pool view. It was nice to relax by the pool although we decided not to have a dip because water was too cold after couple of rainy days. When we discovered our credit on Serbian phones had nearly run out and asked receptionist for advice regarding topping up, she immediately called nearby petrol station to find out if they were offering topping up service to spare us wasted journey on foot. This hotel is set in beautiful grounds, with well tended flowers and grass. We had very pleasant walk through the woods and into nearby village. Also this hotel is only 10 minutes drive to Uzice, and for those who use public transport when in Serbia this place offered convenient local bus stop 2 minutes walk, also reasonably priced local taxi service. Hotel has a restaurant offering tasty local dishes at reasonable prices
Cons: There was nothing to dislike, maybe only some constructive suggestions, for example offering electric kettle and cups/mugs in a room. As hotel doesn’t have a lounge - only restaurant or a pub, it’s quite nice to come back to apartment and enjoy nice cup of tea whilst sitting on a balcony or relaxing on a comfortable sofa in front of TV. Even if there isn’t a kettle in every room, maybe having one we could borrow would have been nice. To their credit, bar staff were happy to supply boiling water for our needs.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Comfortable and clean room, close to Uzice to Zlatibor main road. We we visiting Uzice and this hotel was close enough to go back and forth. Setting is beautiful. Out apartment had balcony. Everything was pretty and restaurant served tasty food. We didn’t stay long enough to fully appreciate all the hotel had to offer.

Cons: Second bedroom was okay but more like a European room whereas the the main bedroom was the size of an American room; we visited in April which is out of main season and not all menu options were available (limited for vegetarians in particular); breakfast included was not the usual buffet (not enough customers to open it).

6.8 Good
Pros: The staff were very friendly and helpful, location was great, very quiet place.
Cons: We did not like the fact that we were told that we had to wait 2 hours to be able to use the Jacuzzi, to give them time to heat the water, and after that we found the water in the jacuzzi to be freezing. Most of the other functions in the jacuzzi did not work either. Later on we went down for dinner and all we got out of the juice machine was water.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Need to ask for spa to be prepared in advanced, but we where the only 2 persons there so that was good. The location was really good, a walking distance to city center, but away from the noise and the cars. Enjoy walking around the hotel where there was not a lot of cars and really beatiful view.
Cons: In bathroom the water was leaking from shower after taking it. The breakfast during 1 day was individual and it took them quite some time to prepare.

9.3 Excellent
Pros: We stayed here for one night from 23rd July to 24th July! The place is beautiful with lovely decoration and a very vintage look. We were in the comfort one bed room apartment for a family of 2 adults and 2 kids, but it was a lil small for 4 of us and we left it a lil congested. Otherwise it was all good. We chose the option of without breakfast but had the breakfast at the restaurant. The food at the restaurant is amazing and the restaurant is beautifully decorated. It exactly as it looks in the pics. We had meals in the restaurant even we checked out from here and stayed in another hotel. The staff couldn't speak english very well, but still managed to help us to their best! Everything else was perfect! There is a drink store and grocery store right next to Villa and the center is around a 15 minute walk.
Cons: The room was small and congested but it had everything and was neatly decorated. We had initially made a booking at this hotel with booking.com choosing the wrong dates which we cancelled within the free cancellation period shown as per booking.com. However the hotel still charged us and we are currently having this addressed.

7.0 Good
Pros: Very clean, good breakfast
Cons: Needs renovation. Rooms facing road suffer from noise pollution
3.3 Mediocre
Pros: This is our second trip to Mona. We were here in 2016. This time we came with our ~1y child. We thought it would be great to spend some time with him in Mona's kids room (between the walks outside), only to find out that it was closed for part of our stay. More about this in the "cons" part... The thing that surprised us this time is that Zlatibor is one big construction site now, and the main square is a ferry. We only liked the Dino park though, but this doesn't have anything to do with the property.
Cons: Since we are returning guests in Mona, these are the reasons we won't be returning anymore: - Smelly bathroom (this was tiny bit of an issue during our first stay, but has escalated to whole new level). Other bathroom problems include: mold in the shower area, very weak tap pressure (cannot shave properly with it), and not using bags for the trash (the last two probably sold by "being green", but I think they are just being cheap). - Food was much better during our first stay. Variety of food was much better, and quality as well. One tiny example is that salad we liked very much the first time wasn't even on the menu (found and tried it in "Perun" restaurant there in the hotel, but wasn't the same level of quality/taste as it was before). The other tiny thing that surprised me is that they serve chocolate cream in a bowl (for cereals) and you take it out with a spoon, ie. you cannot find it in small packed portions like jam. Not very 4-star hotel like. They simply cheap out on things they shouldn't. - Kids playroom was closed for part of our stay. Have we known this, we would never stay at Mona in the first place! They sold out the kids playroom to some conference meeting people. I sure hope they came to some freakin' good conclusions in those meetings, since they banned the children from playing there in the cold day. Other thing - it seems that the playroom works only from 2pm, which is a bad thing if you want to take your kid there after breakfast. Anyway, they refunded us that day with ridiculous 7-8euros :) We say again - we wouldn't be there if we knew it will be partly closed. - Other unprofessionalism we experienced: - We waited for 15mins to enter our room after they gave us the wrong card keys. This was after exhausting trip. - We specificially asked in an email to have the child crib taken into the room only to find out after entering the room that it wasn't there.

Pros: Nice owner, helpful and kind. Good location of the property, clean yard and surroundings.

He told us taxi can take us to Видиковац Молитва 2 the No.2 view point which public transportation cannot, and the whole trip take about 8 to 9 hours. So we booked the taxi from him. But the tour took only 4 hours the driver take us back and we did not go to the most beautiful No.2 view point. The driver told us we need to take boat to get there and there is no boat from Nov to Apr. When we call the manager he said he don't know we cannot go to the Видиковац Молитва 2, if the drive told us no, then no. As a local he don't know there is no boat at this time is funny.
