First holiday away as a couple and can definitely say we will be back. Stayed here in June 2016 for two weeks (sorry about the delay on the review but after reading some bad reviews I felt I should share our experience). The hotel impressed us from day one. Very clean and well maintained. Maids where always so friendly. The location is brilliant as it's far enough away from the busier part of Bulgaria but also walking distance away if you wished to go there. Both me and my partner are very fussy eaters but the butffet style restaurant was brilliant, there was so many different food choices to choose from and it changed every night. The hotel also provides allergy information on each dish which was brilliant as I have a nut allergy and I was then more confidant in trying new foods (p.s you've got to try shark). The only things I would recommend would be more staff available at dinner to take drink orders in better time and for more tables to be provided at breakfast as it got busier on our second week. There is lots to do in this area, the hotels spa is also brilliant and staff there where so nice. Overall a great holiday with no complaints! Will definitely be returning soon:)
Very nice accomodation, located close to the beach and boulevard. Beautiful pool at the hotel and very good service. Especially the staff of the hotel is very helpfull and makes your stay special. The a la card restaurant has an excellent service and makes sure the food is of good quality and helps the customers with their special requests. The reception was very helpful whenever we had questions. The hotel is clean and tidy and looks really good. Our children (8 and 10 year) had a great holiday and look forward to next year.
"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.
