the pools are very cold but nice once your in , the food is ok its all the same every day and some of it is cold but you can warm it up and if you have toast make sure you start it first as if takes ages to make , the drinks are great nice cold beer and large shots the staff are not bad could do with cracking a smile once in a while , there was no entertainment at all just a staff member playing a few cds and for the kids geting them to get spoons out of the cold pool , i would not go back as never go same place twice but all i can say is if you go out at night have your wits about you , if you like your bling leave it at home , only carry small amounts of money , stay out of the dark areas it is all markets selling the same stuff they dont like to hagel , and if you need to use the toilet while out they charge you form 50 lv to 1 lv but look about and you can get a beer for 89 lv about 45p . all in all i would say go and make your own mind up the hotel is great its just the area and the thing of not being safe at nights on the main drag

the staff were friendly and the hotel was always clean . the bathroom in our room was large but got very wet when you had a shower as it was all tiled put a towel down as i managed to slip up and fall over .
the food was some what bland and repetitive but then again you are in another country and should expect local cuisine they had chips and chicken nuggets for the kiddies and salad . its cheap enough to eat out if you don't like the hotel food so its no problem there was little or no sweet options so when you get that sugar pang you just have to go buy something .
the drinks for all inclusive customers were fine a little strong for my liking 3 quarters of a pint glass of vodka and a splash of coke was a little much for me but i think they pour it till you ask them to stop which is no big deal . they offer cocktails at the main inside bar and beer all day .
i do remember a fellow Brit constantly complaining that the bar didn't open till 11 am but who wants a vodka and coke with breakfast ?
the pool was nice there was a children's pool which looked really safe and in good position to watch the kiddies from the pool side there was absolutely no glasses allowed around the pool side for obvious reasons but plastic glasses were provided so it was safe for children to run about .
there was an endless amount of bars to go to along the beach and karaoke bars everywhere which i loved . my biggest complaint about the holiday would be the person i took with me i recommend you choose your company well . other than that the hotel was a brilliant place to stay in and not only would i recommend it but i am returning to the same hotel again this year .
i recommend June and July for the best weather in Bulgaria . also buy your sun tan lotion before you go as its very expensive there.
i hope you enjoy your holiday in sunny beach .

There was only one small all inclusive bar tucked at the back of the hotel resturant. No problems obtaining beer, spirits and soft drinks although there was no diet/sugar free options available. None of the above was available until after 11.00 am.
The staff worked very hard at all hours keeping all the communial areas clean and tidy. There was plenty of room around the pool area, no problems in getting a sun bed. Both pools though were very cold.
Our main complaint along with the majority of people in the hotel was with quality and variety of the food. It was always cold and seemed to be made up of left overs from the previous day. Definitely not to the english palette, even the most adventurous amongst us struggled to find anything to their liking. The coffee tasted like luke warm mud and I would advise you to take your own tea bags and coffee (and a travel kettle if you want a drink in your room when you get up).
Overall we booked two weeks too late as things in the resort were starting to close and the weather could get quite nippy im the evening, so would advise you to take jeans and a jumper. We would not visit this hotel again due to the standard of the food,which is a real shame as it could be a great hotel if they sorted this problem out.

We would certainly go back to Bulgaria but would definitely go to a different hotel.
