When you see the pictures of this hotel, with the nice lobby, pools and pretty large rooms, you might think you're up for a treat. But you're wrong. You're wrong because on top of all that, there are the services who complete a 4 stars hotel. And this is not a 4 stars hotel. The staff from restaurant and bar... More

Had lovely holiday at the Kristal, rooms were very spacious and cleaned everyday, had everything you need. Staff and communal areas great. Food was lovely and available all day somewhere. Only downside was lack of English information as everything written in Bulgarian or German. Not enough sunloungers but this was mostly to people putting towels out but not using till... More

I stayed at the hotel with my son for a week. Very nice all inclusive restaurant with lots of variety between the meals served. Also gluten free alternatives and fruits. The hotel is very clean and the service is relaxed but effective. The gym is a no good. Internet is no good. Pool area is perfect. But overall very warm... More

We stayed here form 18th-25th July 2015 and had a great, relaxing hoilday. We went with low expectations as we had booked last minute after having to cancel our Tunisia Trip so we were pleasantly suprised. We travelled as a couple and where all inclusive. Pros- Food- We thought the food was excellent! We never went for the buffet lunch... More

The hotel itself is very well kept and managed, clean and nice looking. Rooms are big enough, each one with a balcony. Bathrooms big, everything inside in good working order. Good towels. One big minus: there's no light over the mirror to see your face when shave or put on the make-up. The only spot light is above, in the... More

Rooms - They aren't so great. They look a little poor not for 4 stars Personal - Very very friendly Food - Very good. At the breakfast you have a lot of types and also at lunch and dinner. A lot of cakes :) Position - A little far from the beach Per total it is a good hotel.

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
