We spend only one night in this hotel, on the second week of April 2014 (low season), the hotel is located in a town (Elenite) which is only a few km from the famous sunny beach and nessebar. However Elenite is not the nicest town in Bulgaria by any means, its full of hotels, with a rocky beach and basically... More

Hotel Royal Castle is a 4-5 star property with unfortunatley 3 star service and attention to detail. The building, rooms, restaurants and facilities are really top notch and high quality,easily 4-5 star quality. However the service and staff from the front desk to the restaurants is not of the same standard. Not horrible, not rude, just not in line with... More

As always, expectations have been exceeded. The Royal Castle is definitely the best 5 star hotel on the Bulgarian Sea Coast. We have stayed at Royal Castle over 12 times and will keep coming back. Previous management which had some problems has been replaced with more attentive staff. The property and the rooms are uniquely designed and comfortable. The spa... More

Me and my husband love travelling and we always stay in 5* hotels. I must honestly say there are not many good 5 * hotels in Bulgaria. Royal Castle is close to the definition of a 5 star, however it could not be compared to a 5 star hotel in Dubai, for example, or in Europe. Mainly it lacks good... More

This hotel is one of the most amazing ones in Bulgaria. The atmosphere itself makes you feel as if you are in a fairy tale. Both interior and exterior are magnificent - very shiny and spectacular. Rooms are spacious, bright and clean. The SPA is unique and the staff is very helpful

This hotel is marketed as one of they best in Bulgaria. Well is it is certainly glamerous, the interiors are very glossy. I went with a Bulgarian who maybe gets a little more of the inside track than most. It is in the vein of the recent hotels in Belek in Turkey, big and glam and attracts the sort of... More

This hotel is sooo luxurious that I did not want to leave, the spa facilities where amazing and made sure I made full use of them. The only bad thing was it was winter and there was no hot water in the hotel during our stay, however they apologised and gave us full access ( free) of the spa facilities.... More

The hotel is new and most of the staff is friendly and helpful. There is a great spa, wonderful seaside, clean water. I could rest well and that was the most important. Food is not the best but ask about the fish soup... unforgettable. Don't miss - the inner swimming pool - it is for free, uses oxygen to clean... More
