Just back from an All Inclusive week at the Viva Hotel and so glad we booked it! The room was fantastic and extremely clean with the towels changed on a daily basis. The choice of food available for each meal was amazing and different every day, we especially loved the amount of fresh fruit and plentiful supply of puddings! For... More

Stayed at the viva september2013 great hotel, very clean, lovely food. Fairly near to the beach. Will be going back 2014 . Travelled to varna but had my wallet lifted on the bus. Managed to jump of the bus, apprehended the thief and got my wallet back.beware there are some very shifty people.

Here is a great place to spend your holiday, especially if you have children. they have a pool for kids, and also activities for them. The room also has a special bed for the little one. About the restaurant, I may say that is to much food. Everything is fresh and delicious. I am vegetarian, and I was pleasantly surprised... More

The hotel was exceptionally difficult to find, despite its enormous size. It was not signposted on the way from Varna, and even seemed inaccessible from 100 m distance. Our brand-new car navigation could not find it either. Booking of an additional room for our friends proved extremely difficult. Main lounge and general premises very inspiring. The rooms were excellent, except... More

Cereals / loads of egg varieties / salad continental style so you wont go hungry but not the same as an english fry... More

Read about this hotel on TA before we went - we were not disappointed. Yes there are loads of steps down to the beach but you will need the exercise to walk off all the gorgeous food you will be eating at the hotel. Hotel was spotless. Staff couldn't do enough for you. I saw the receptionist putting cream on... More

First of all, very good food!! Based on my information I gathered from meeting people from other hotels, it's the best food in the area. The personnel is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and nice. Not very modern and the second double bed in the room wasn't any good. But overall, very little to complain about. Very... More

This was both our first holiday in Bulgaria and also first All Inclusive so naturally we were a little unsure but hopeful of a nice weeks break. Well what can I say!!!! This is certainly the best hotel we have ever stayed in and I can honestly say that there is not one thing we could find to fault. We... More
