Things to do at and around your hotel:

Our hotel Iberostar Herceg Novi is in an idyllic location, away from the tourist masses and a great base for exploring Montenegro. Your SPoH tour leader will help organise excursions to nearby attractions, but you can equally relax in and around the hotel:

Kids and adult entertainment:

Our hotel has kids clubs for children aged 4 to 12 with daily activities on offer, as well as a playground. For teenagers and parents, there are sports activities on offer, such as beach volleyball, football, Pilates, aerobics, spinning classes, and aqua fit. You can also book stand up paddles, pedalos, and kayaks directly at the hotel.

The evening entertainment for all ages includes mini discos for our  youngest guests, shows and live music, a White Party at the beach, and an impressive folklore show.

The beach and pool:

Our hotel has a large pool with integrated toddler section on the rooftop providing panoramic views across the Adriatic sea. The long private beach is directly outside the hotel and is partly pebbly and partly paved and has a lovely beach bar where you can have lunch and get refreshments all day long.

Excursions and activities:

The historic centre of Herceg Novi, with its beautiful cobbled streets and famous clock tower, can easily be reached by ferry from the hotel’s jetty. We also recommend taking a boat trip to the Blue Cave with a swim in the blue lagoon. If you want to venture a little further, you could book a Bay of Kotor boat trip, a day-trip to Skadar Lake, or a kayak tour along the beautiful coastline.

Montenegro, meaning “Black Mountain”, is a small country in the Southwest Balkans bordering the Adriatic Sea. It is best known for its medieval towns and villages and its beautiful coastline stretching for almost 300 kilometres, scattered with 117 beaches. Yet an ironically lesser known fact is, that 90% of Montenegro is, in fact, mountains, and truly spectacular ones at that: majestic rugged mountains, mostly covered in thick forest where wild brown bears, wolves and red deer still roam.

Montenegro borders Croatia, Bosnia, Serbia, Kosovo and Albania. Its capital and largest city is Podgorica.

Herceg Novi:

Founded in 1382 as a fortress and situated at the bottom of the highest mountain in the Dinaric Alps, Mount Orjen, Herceg Novi has over the centuries been ruled by the Ottoman Empire, Spain and Venice, as well as more recently by Russia, France and Austria. The town of Herceg Novi is situated between Mountain Orjen (1,895 m) and one of the most beautiful bays in the world – the Bay of Kotor. The old town with its pretty winding cobbled streets and the famous clock tower and the monastery of Salvina on a hillside outside the city centre are an absolute must-see for visitors to the area.

Below a selection of holiday reviews from our single parent holidays in Montenegro in 2022 and 2023:

"I had a really wonderful holiday in Montenegro with my 6 year old! It was our first SPOH holiday and we both thoroughly enjoyed it. The hotel had beautiful scenery of mountains and beach overlooking the breathtaking Bay of Kotor. It was lovely to meet other families and have the group to spend time with. Jane was a great host! Can’t wait to do another trip!"
- Lina & Bodhi (6) - single parent beach holiday Montenegro, May 2024
"This was our first SPOH and we had a fab time in Montenegro. The hotel was clean and the staff worked really hard. The location is just stunning, views are breath taking. I liked there were loads of sunbeds and so easy to go from the pool to beach. It felt very safe and nice size for the kids. The boat to the old town was nice and good to get out to see some of the area.
Sandra was friendly and helpful which took so much stress away so could relax and just enjoy the holiday. "

- Helen & Freya (5) - single parent beach holiday Montenegro, August 2023
"This was my first Single Patents on Holiday vacation as well as first holiday going solo without partner. I was stressed and overwhelmed all the way until we arrived but soon was happy to realize that I had made the best decision I could make for myself and my daughter. Once we got there, I didn’t have to do any thinking. No, what’s for dinner, no what shall we do to be entertained. Our rep, Sandra was so friendly and on the case with all arrangements. Other parents were lovely. For the first time in months, I slept properly and was able to unwind enough to actually read a book. I could only do this as I was comfortable that my 11 year old was having the time of her life and didn’t need me as entertainment. Thoroughly recommend Single Parents on Holiday to anyone who is considering the daunting prospect of holidaying as a single parent. "
- Corina & Lois (11) - single parent beach holiday Montenegro, August 2023
"We had a great holiday. I laughed every day. The other mums were great fun and children mixed well and enjoyed their independence taking themselves off to eat, swim, have fun. Holiday made easy as everything was organised for us. Sandra was a great host and made us feel well looked after. We were sad to leave everyone. "
- Helen & Ben (12) - single parent beach holiday Montenegro, August 2023
"We all had an excellent time and made lots of new friends. Tracey was a great host and very helpful. "
- Chris, Tabitha (10) & Evan (7) - single parent beach holiday Montenegro, July 2023
"What a great holiday! This was my first holiday with the kids as a single parent and I'm really happy that I chose SPOH for it. Both my kids made friends, had a great time, and didn't feel like the odd ones out for only having one parent there. The hotel and location were excellent, it was a really nice group of single parent families, and Sandra was just brilliant. Looking forward to further SPOH holidays in the future!"
- Bill, Luca (13) & Lara (10) - single parent beach holiday Montenegro, July 2022
"This was my first experience of booking a single parent holiday and I was initially apprehensive. This soon melted away upon arrival. Being able to mix with a group of like minded adults all in the same position made this holiday. The children formed friends quickly and found their own entertainment. I was actually able to relax and not worry, everyone chipped in keeping an eye on the kids. We all formed a great bond as parents and ended up spending a considerable amount of time together. As a single dad this was a revelation and made my holiday. I met some wonderful people, made friends whom I will stay in contact with and my son had one of his best ever holidays.
I cannot recommend Single Parents on Holiday highly enough. If anyone is reading this because they too are feeling apprehensive about booking, please just book, you will not be disappointed."

- Steven & Jared (12) - single parent beach holiday Montenegro, July 2022
"This holiday to Montenegro was fabulous on many levels. A group of like minded single parents, caring and fun individuals that made the week so special. Some "me time", some time to relax with adults, some sightseeing time, all of those in a magnificent setting. I could not ask for more! And last but not least, my son had the week of his life, not seeing me ;-) and making new friends. Which ensured my holiday was a success. A special Thanks to our host, Sandra, who is an amazing lady. She ensured the week went smoothly for all. "
- Marine & Zach (11) - single parent beach holiday Montenegro, July 2022
"We had a fantastic time in Montenegro. My son played happily in the pool with the other kids, while I got to relax on a sun lounger chatting to the other parents or reading a book. I came back feeling well rested and relaxed, which can't be said for every family holiday we go on! "
- Rachel & Xavier (9) - single parent beach holiday Montenegro, July 2022
"This was my first single parent holiday. And it was nice to be together in Montenegro, even if my son (5) and I couldn't integrate so much due to the age difference with the older children and teenagers. But it was still a good feeling to be with other single parent families.
The boat trip with our group to the blue grotto was brilliant. Swimming there in the morning before the other tourist boats arrived was a special experience. Sandra helped me book a bus tour of Montenegro which I did independently of the group, and was able to see so much of this beautiful and impressive country.
The hotel is very nice. I would go there again. The water is crystal clear and the scenery is impressive. With a small boat, which runs almost every hour, you can go directly from the hotel to Heceg Novi (10 minutes). Our room was top notch. I booked sea view and was given a room on the top floor with fantastic views. The food in the restaurant was very good. And we had a nice view. My son was in the kids' club on the last morning and liked what was on offer and the staff were very friendly. Sandra as a host was great. She took care of everything and everyone. She is personal and professional with a lot of passion."

- Katharina & Aaron (5) - single parent beach holiday Montenegro, July 2022
"Montenegro is a beautiful country, Iberostar is a great hotel, I could not fault the attentiveness of the team and the views are stunning. The entertainment team here are brilliant, there were lots of activities throughout the day and the enthusiasm is contagious. The aqua aerobics was a big hit!
Sandra is a great host, very welcoming, she organised various trips/days out and she brought the group together whilst you still had the option to dip in and out if you wish. We couldn't have asked for a friendlier group, a great time was had by both adults and children. I highly recommend it. Thank you for a fantastic holiday!"

- Emma & Ruby (11) - single parent beach holiday Montenegro, July 2022
"We had the most amazing time. Love the fact you can dip in and dip out of the activities and timings so you have the freedom to make your holiday your own whilst having the comfort of being looked after by a host (thank you Sandra - you are fabulous!). We've made friends for life and my daughter says it was the best holiday we've EVER been on (not that I saw her that much as she was having so much fun with the other kids!!). Will 100% be booking again next year!!"
- Tracy & Sasha (15) - single parent beach holiday Montenegro, July 2022
"Everything was just perfect! "
