"Excellent Hotel In Great Location"
We stayed in Room 804 which is in Block E and a self-catering apartment with a pool view. Although we ate outevery day there was a fridge, hob, oven and kettle, plus plenty of glasses and cutlery if you were to make your own meals in the apartment. We found the hotel staff on reception very pleasant and helpful on check-in and check-out. There were always plenty of sunloungers around the pool and the entertainment staff were very friendly. The hotel was in a great location, just a short walk from the beach and there were plenty of restaurants and bars nearby.
"Not a 5* hotel..."
This is not a 5* hotel. Overall we had a lovely holiday, it was just let down with the food and cleanliness!! The buffet is repetitve and very boring, after the first day we were bored of it, plus it was very cold the food. Having paid to be all inclusive, the pool bar you have to pay!' Even though you got 50% off the food, this is very naughty. Our rooms didn't get cleaned, they just made the bed!! Every time we walked past a room and saw a cleaner inside they were on their phones. Considering it is advertised as a 5* these need to be met by 5* standards, not 2*. The location was great - 5 minute walk from beach and nightlife. The entertainment staff are such lovely people, so enthusiastic and happy. Couldn't fault them whatsoever.
"Wonderful Place To Stay"
Excellent hotel with all amenities you could wish for and central to all area`s of sunny Beach. Nessebar is a "Must" visit . food restaurants were plentiful in Sunny Beach, but all inclusive is available in the hotel if you wished. The area within Sunny Beach was trouble free, and we would recommend a visit to Nessebar, such a lovely place with loads of history. We went by boat from the Sunny Beach pier, but you can go by bus or train aswell, or if you feel energetic then you can walk.
"Not a 5 star"
The hotel is definitely not a 5 star, more a good 3 star. The pool area is excellent although too cold to go in. The staff are friendly and helpful. The a la carte is excellent, the buffet restaurant is excellent for breakfast but the evening meals are repetitive, although edible. The only problem with the hotel is the cleanliness. The toilets in the reception and spa are disgusting, they smell vile, paper all over the floor, never cleaned. The room had 2 single beds pushed together and a settee. All the furniture was dusty, the maid swept the floor where you could walk, no where else, we lifted the rug and there was a square of sand, dirt and hair underneath it. The bathroom had mould and scum everywhere, the cleanliness really lets this hotel down.
"Overall good hotel but could be improved"
The hotel is situated in a central area of Sunny Beach and is in a good position within the resort The pool area consists of 3 pools one specifically for children. It is clean and well cared for with plenty of sun beds, mattresses and umbrellas Towels are also provided. The hotel has spacious bed rooms with facilities to make hot drinks and also a fridge The decor was fine as was the bathroom all though both required some maintainance. The public areas where clean and well furnished but toilets near the reception area left a lot to be desired at night when they weren't checked and cleaned at the busiest times as they serviced reception, general seating area and bar. The food was like most hotels somewhat repetitive but with a great deal of choice so you could always find a nice meal Overall a good hotel that needs a refurb in the bedrooms and more investment in cleaning staff in all areas
