Plenty of good restaurants and a very good ski area for family's if you avoid February half term week. Go in March for a brilliant experience.

The skiing resort and slopes in Bansko were excellent. We had some great food and in some lovely restaurants, Queens in town and the VIP bar at the top of the Gondala were my favourites. There were plenty of places to have drinks in both the day and night and the people of Bansko were so helpful. The above wrapped... More

I used to hate skiing, bad experiences in France and Austria made me fairly terrified of skiing. Unfortunately I have a family that love it. We first came to Bansko about 6 years ago, I didn't want lessons as I had the basic skills and didn't want to be pushed as my nerves were fraught. I love Bansko and I... More

Fresh snow, quiet slopes and no queues. A glorious final day of skiing on 10th April - blue sky and sunshine all day. Brilliant!!

The other reviews on here about Bansko amaze me. The place is dreadful, The skiing is well below average even if you are a beginner, the ski lifts are a joke, the people are nothing but rude, the town is full of strip joints, an army of 18-30 groups pretending to have fun downing shots and on the doors to...

Have been here twice before. Good to see how well its developing. Facilities are excellent and the restaurants and bars down towards the town have great food. Personally prefer more local bars with traditional entertainment, but each to their own. Skiing facilities first class, not expensive and good kit for hire.

Very nice and relatively small sites. Good for a long weekend. To small for 1 week of ski/snowboard to my opinion No après ski. Some local dance clubs available but there are not so good

This is an amazing location, great view and much snow even in April. We had a great time, and we don't even ski. The snow, the forest and the tourist facilities are enough for an excellent time.

Get slopes, great night life and really nice people. Stayed in St George Palace and apart hotel was very nice! The only problem i encountered was long queues for the gondola to get up the mountain. This can be resolved by catching a taxi of the free bus.
