My friends and I booked a last minute cheap holiday to Bulgaria, the cost and for what we received was great. The food like all European destinations was alright to say the least, but you release after a few days what to eat and what not to eat. The meat we found was a no go, but the snack bar... More

Cannot begin to say how marvellous this hotel and its staff are. We went on our first family holiday in 4 years and were just needing a complete break. I emailed the hotel prior to our arrival to ask for 2 rooms close together preferably poolside and got exactly what I had asked for. The hotel rooms are spotless and... More

There isnt a single negative thing to be said about this hotel. Rooms are immaculate and cleaned everyday. Staff were lovely and the entertainment team were amazing. They were fun to chat to and they had various activities going on constantly throughout the day, eg air rifle shooting, volleyball, football, water polo and many more. They put on briliant entertainment... More

My boyfriend & I have just returned from a wonderful week at the Hotel Riu. This was our first holiday all inclusive and it set the bar high. There was a good variety of food, the only complaint we have is some of the meat is a bit iffy but you do get that in other countries. Unlike some places... More

Myself and my boyfriend stayed here from 5th - 15th of July. We arrived in the dead of night and were welcomed with a smile, given all our information and a bottle of water for the room. The staff were fantastic and made us feel welcomed, and were quick to let us check in and get to bed. The room... More

My husband and I went for a short break as I had been in hospital recently, and would normally not have gone at this time of the year as it was very very hot. Hotel excellent but area quite noisy. Room overlooking swimming pool essential and not front of hotel.

The hotel was always clean and the room was always cleaned nice. The food was nice and you could always find something to have. If I go... More
