We staid at Sandy Beach for a week, with our 5 year old doughtier. The hotel was great, good food, good beverages, no lines on lunch or dinner time. Great beach. Quite large rooms ( 1 single, 1 king size bad, 1 sofa), sea view. Good size bathroom with shower. Very clean rooms and good housekeeping. Pro: the pool is... More

We spent one week in the hotel. The rooms are usualy a bit small, but we paid extra money for a better room and left completely satisfied with the comfort it provides. The food was great, service was ok too, the beach is like 20 meters away from the hotel, so it's very conviniet for people who want to have... More

This is a nice hotel in a nice area. The hotels are grouped fairly close together with one shopping street. It is quite a small resort and not too much going on, which was fine for me! The weekend I was there Albena was celebrating 45 years of tourism. So they had a festival in thd centre where you could... More

Everything was fairly fine: location of the hotel, rooms, food in the restaurant (one would expect more food for children 4 yo rather than fries, pasta and pancakes/waffles). Lobby bar is ok and bartenders were great and friendly. The beach is close to the hotel, though rather dirty. No bar close to the beach. The town itself is more for... More

This is the best hotel in Albena: great staff, food and location. staff speaks English, German and Russian. Good variety of food. Pools are surrounded by green trees. Very nice and fabulous smelling roses nearby. Just wanted to get more food suitable to small kids, for example porridges or curd dishes. Kids were not happy to eat only pancakes, pastas... More

The best value for the money. Great service and attitude. I definitely will come back to this one day. It is real 4star hotel after the renovation and its location is very good near by the sea. Food is delicious as it should be and according to my experience in the entire Albena resort - they lean on the good... More

We have enjoyed our holiday in Albena / Sandy Beach which we recommend especially for those with kids. Rooms are very clean and they were redecorated recently. The hotel is closed to the beach with 2 sun beds included. The hotel staff is very friendly and willing to help since the beginning of your stay. We had a diverse and... More

I absolutely recommend Sandy Beach Hotel. I stayed there 7 days in June with my son. The food was excellent, the rooms renovated and the staff were very nice. The only remark is about the animation team, who was busy playing only with the german kids. For some reason they were not paying attention to bulgarian, russian and romanian kids.... More
