Food: repetitive and cold.
Staff: once they get used to you they are very nice but expect a bit of a cold shoulder treatment at the beginning.
Entertainment: pool (small but clean and not too busy - opposite to the cacao beach), pool table (free metal tokens from the reception), trips and excursions can be booked from the hotel reception (we have not booked any so cannot comment). no other activities in the hotel.
We will not be visiting even though we liked the hotel but Sunny Beach itself is very busy and not for families in our opinion.

Food was to a good standard, breakfast being the same choices each morning but the pool side menu was lovely with lots of variation. SB main strip is only a short stroll away or bus ride which suited us fine as we prefer to be away from the screams and vomit strewn walkways.
Cacao beach was just over the road. This beach was one of the nicest I have visited in Europe. Immaculatly clean, plenty to do and the bars there are stunning and welcoming.
All in all the Regatta Hotel is a place we are already trying to book for 2009.

The beach is lovely and only across the road. The town centre is a 15-20 minute walk away. You can also get the train or bus into the town centre from across the road from the hotel.
Nessebar is also close by.
The staff at the Regatta are really friendly.
The food is the only negative thing about this hotel. The breakfast is ok but the evening meals were bad. I would advise going bed and breakfast.We went half board but only ate our evening meal there twice.

Cheap and cheerful or you get what you pay for!
The front of the hotel and pool face a very,very busy road,which proved to be quite entertaining watching
how badly everyone drove. We got use to the noise!
We found the communal areas clean, but our room was not
really cleaned properly i.e bathroom not touched, dust
The food was very basic with the same salad and chips
served everyday. The food was served from bainmaries and
was never hot. The are many restaurants a short distance
away about a 15 minute walk.
The staff all smoked in the main bar/lobby area of the
The pool was quite large compared to many of the
4star hotels, and there were always plenty of sunlounges
available for everyone.

I always thought that the only people who wrote in were ones who complained,but this is not all bad,to start the hotel is right on a busy main road with only a small hedge between you and the thundering lorries roaring past,but there was a pelican crossing right outside.
The Hotel was described as built in 2004 which was true,but strangely this was part of the problem,at best you could only compare it to a kind of Travelodge style of Hotel,not suitable for tourists looking for a Beachy Holiday. We didn't see any other guests for 2 days and they looked pleased to see us as well.
We had booked Half Board/buffet style but alas there wasn't any,the 1 single waitress served you a luke warm meal and if it wasn't what you wanted then that was it,fortunately the food in the Sunny Beach resort was superb so we survived,but if we wanted self catering then we would have booked it to begin with. After 4 days of this the Hotel suddenly served a buffet style menu,you now had a choice of 2 things to eat!!!.
I found that in the morning the Hotel was run by adults but by the afternoon it was being run by teenagers,one even stepped from the pool to serve my 14yr old boy sweets wearing only a thong,blimey imagine if i'd bought a drink !!
One night when we got back late we deciced to have a quick drink before going up,after waiting a few minutes a boy climbed from the pool to serve us in his wet shorts,oh yes if "Music Idol" was on you may have to wait a while until the act finished to get attention.
Because we had a late flight I asked for us to keep the room on,but they wanted 78 Lev,which considering the hassle we had I thought was steep,I kind of barted with them saying that I would be complaining when we got back,then hey presto out popped this previously photo copied form which said I would agree to not officialy complain if I accepted their offer of the room. What Hotel keeps forms like that in the filing cabinet ?
But as always some of the staff made up for it,as for the entertainment,well that was it,staying at the Hotel,whilst we were out we would compare with other tourists and have a laugh about it.
