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.

Pluses: The pools and the water slides were greatly appreciated by kids, also the garden, the playing ground and the tree house. The rooms were acceptable in terms of facilities. Also for cleanliness, but just marginally. For those arriving by car there was plenty of parking space (compared to other hotels in Sunny Beach). The way to the beach is... More

Hotel looks lovely from outside and in lobby,but look further in and it is different. Holes in carpets and bleach stains,the so called sunbeds round the pool are a disgrace. In the picture on brochure nice white beds, but what you get are hard brown wooden things with bits broken and missing bits.And as far as the food goes,we have... More
