I saw this mini aqua park on the road in, got a bus for 1 leva, and we got in for 10 leva a head, no difference for adult or child. It is very cute, my first water park, and I was thrilled with the children's area, and the pirate ship. The huge bucket that dumps its load when it... More

I was little bit scared when reading some reviews here on Trip Advisor but I was very surprised with the hotel! The hotel had a reconstruction in past years and what we get was a extremely big room for me, my wife and 2 young sons. Literally we can play football there. Also the bathroom was very big. The room... More

We stay with family beginning Septemer. Water in the pools was very cold, like ice. The food was not very delicious. Always the same. Definitly not pay the full pensions. The rooms are good the service is good enough. Good hotel for a family with children.

We always wanted to go to Bulgaria. I went with my boyfriend and his 11 years old daughter. We stayed at Hotel Kotva for seven days and I can honestly say that I would rather spend my vacation at home watching TV than prolong our stay for one single day. The hotel has four stars, but the services and food... More

Great hotel, perfect for families with the kids as there is an aquapark for kids, and also is very good for the couples, the location is superb! It takes 10 minutes on foot to get to the new town of Nesebar and about 30 to the old one. The personnel is really nice, they made our vacation perfect!

The food is terrible, every day the same. Restaurant was completely full. For whole hotel (500 guests?) only 2 child chairs (family hotel?). On the other hand there is a great pool with slides for all age children and close to the beach. In general, we enjoy it and if you can overcome the breakfats it was fine.
