We spent one week in Bulgaria and stayed at Kristal Hotel. The hotel was ok, but not a 4 star hotel. It was more like 2-3 star hotel. We had all inclusive and it was nice. There was always breakfast, lunch and dinner for free. Also snacks, ice cream (only one hour in the afternoon), soft drinks and local alcohol... More

I stayed here or a week as a group (5 girls). The hotel and location we're perfect for us, we didn't want to go to a large party place as we've been there done that, and prefer a choice of partying and relaxing! The rooms we're ok and clean, we were on the ground floor at the front of the... More

I stayed at Hotel Kristal with my family from 15th August to 29th August and had a wonderful time. I was a little apprehensive about going all inclusive because eating and drinking out in Bulgaria is so cheap but I needn't have worried,it was excellent. The meals were varied and of good quality with themed nights every other night. The... More

This was a last minute booking so we didn't have much choice and were worried about how the hotel would turn out. Needn't have worried - this hotel really is excellent. Check in was quick. The rooms were fairly large as was the en-suite. Both were clean and cleaned well daily. Linen and towels were changed after 3 days. Service... More

We, myself and my daughter of 20 and son of 18, stayed here in the second week of July this year. It was a blast. The room was more than allright, with a walk in shower instead of a bath. Pool and poolbar are excellent, nice gardens and outdoor fitness (the inside one is not really fit for true fanatics).... More

Although I personally did not stay at Hotel Kristal, I wanted to give credit to the awesome staff that helped me arrange a surprise to my girlfriend who did. After just a few e-mails with the details, they delivered a letter I wrote and beautiful flowers to her room. She was absolutely amazed! It seems the personnel really care for... More

The hotel is situated in the higher part of the Golden Sand resort. It is surrounded by forest, other hotels, lawns and amazing swimming pools. It is a very quiet place, mostly visited by German tourists. Every evening the dinner has a certain theme: Bulgarian, Italian and Mediterranean, Greek, fish based and so on. The staff is very professional and... More
