"Absolute favorite in Sunny Beach"
We spent there one week in September, and had really good time. Whole day there are organized different kind of events (entertainment team with Pavel, Monika and other guys is amazing), staff is very kind. Hotel is located almost on the beach. It is clean hotel with big and spacious rooms. If anything asked, they will bring it to you. The fridge handle was broken when we stepped in, and after we informed them they immediately send repairman and he fixed it, checked light bulbs and replaced those that were not working. Would recommend this one for families with small kids, as they have all you need for nice and cozy vacation.
Pay extra for the safe and lock up your valuables - I didnt and mine were stolen Food was very average not 5 star & not a great selection staff are either rude or surley weather was good not a great location the resort is a bit tatty
Stayed here in August. The reception is very impressive, as is the pool area. The room was a little basic. The hotel has a built in mall which gets busy and plays out music from 9 or 10am. I was only one floor above it and close to a speaker so it did disturb our sleep. Might be better higher up. The pool area was very busy every day so we went to the beach. There is an ATM at the gates from the street into the hotel. Despite being vigilant my card was skimmed on the last night so I wouldn't use that ATM!! There is good nightlife within a few minutes walk and restaurants all around. We had a few issues with staff. I tried to send a piece out for dry cleaning and had a staff member come to my room and scream in my face in Bulgarian. She had no English and had to ring someone from the hotel on her mobile phone for me to speak to. I also witnessed a staff member drop a glass on the ground by the pool bar and this wasn't cleaned up properly despite people walking around barefooted. Good location and it was clean but I wouldn't stay here again.
Back again for a 3rd time last August. Same great location and facilities. Heard recently that they are doing some work to update the bar area - looking forward to seeing what they do. The only slip in standards from our previous trips is the sun loungers. I dont know if they are busier or what but there is a serious issue with sun loungers. One of the best things about this hotel was the availability of loungers at any time during the day. People used to put down their towels when they arrived at the pool and took them away when they left but now, all inclusive customers are putting towels on beds on the way to breakfast. I hope they do something about this or it will ruin a very good pool area.
"Definitely not a 5* but a good 3*"
Spent a week here with my wife and friends, overall it was a nice hotel but the service and room cleaning left a lot to be desired, the pool area was lovely and the food was ok, we ate out most nights as the cost to eat out was cheap as chips.. some staff were very rude but don't go here expecting a 5* as it certainly isn't. Overall we all enjoyed it but the room cleaning was not good, think our room was cleaned twice in 7 days.
