Asked advise here when we went to Spain and Turkey last year on this forum and now we are after advise for the following...
Staying at either the Sol Nessebar Bay or Mare hotel as I think we dont get a choice of hotel until we get there, can someone confirm this? and looking for advice on these 2 hotels. Also looking for tips, what to watch out for, where to go and visit and best place for currancy, is it best to take it with us or get it over their?
We are going AI but this was we have the choice of eating/drinking in or going out so best of both worlds.
I'm aware of gipsys, rip off taxi drivers etc etc but what is the area like where the Sol Nessebar Bay & Mare located is it ok, being developed etc?
Anyway, regards all and chat soon.
just read your posts first the two hotels you mention are both good they are on the road out of Nessebar towards Ravda as to Currency dont get it here always a better rate out there but only change at either Crown exchange or $tring there is a String exchange on the main st in New Nessebar just about across from the post office going towards the old town. as to you phone mobitel in Bulgaria is a partner of Vodafone but before you go if you put passport on your contract then you get a good deal for calls abroad but you may be able to use a mobitel Sim in your I phone check with Vodafone. hope this helps
Thanks for the info.
valid for for 20 days) and includes a 5 ÃƒÂÃ‚Â»ÃƒÂÃ‚Â². credit.
So it could work out expensive using data but not as expensive as my Turkey trip
The hotels have their own fleet of cabs attached to the complex, and they wil take you and come back for you if you ask them, so no worries about dodgy cabbies
Anythingelse you want to know, let me know.
Whats the weather like in the begining of June?
been thinking about your post ref I phone do you need to take the I phone with you would be far safer to take just a mobile with your sim or even to put a M/tel sim in over there as it would be costly to lose the i/phone or god forbid for it to be nicked after all it is cheap enough over there to use a local internet cafe to check e/mails or anything else you want to keep a check on .
forgot as you say internet usage by V/fone is expensive even if using a Dongle we found to our cost last year that it was costly when having to use dongle rather than wi/fi which is quite extensive depending where you are staying if you are in Mare/Sol you will probably pick up one of the networks in Ravda
can you download skype to your I pad if so that would be an even cheaper way to contact anyone and would mean you only needed one just a thought

Skype utilises a data stream, it's P2P not voice technology - I use it (
Skypeout to landlines) a great deal from my laptop when I'm in Bulgaria and may use it from my iPad 2 this summer.
There's a free Skype app for iPad, which is available from iTunes.
thanks for coming in on this I was just about to come back for realist to say that he should check the skype website as they say skype can be used on the I Phone and also they say on the I pad althogh you should add an earpiece (bluetooth) hope you are looking forward to Bulgaria if not already there we are in 7 weeks
No, not in BG at the moment, was there in March for a couple of weeks but have just under 8 weeks until my summer trip.
Just tried a successful test call from the Skype app on iPad 2 (
no earpiece required).
Thanks all and keep the advice coming.

glad we could be of assistance when are you going out and remember you are only a hop skype and a jump away from a lot of nice restraunts in both Nessebar and Ravda.
