The place is perfect for summer holiday with children. The accommodation is very good, the staff is very friendly, the animators are nice and amusing. The beach is perfect for small children, long beach and clean and warm sea. In the morning the sunrise could be seen - beautiful picture. The restaurants offer variety of food and the bars -... More

We booked this hotel 9 days before departing, and just before the reviews started about the sickness & diarrhoea. So we were a little bit worried about what we were to expect. But we didn't hear of anyone being ill for the whole 2 weeks we were there. We arrived at 7.15 am (after a 3 hour delay at Gatwick.)... More

We were welcomed at the hotel with an awaiting glasss of bubbly and fruit juice for the kids. The two receptionists spoke were freindly, cheerful and spoke... More

We spent 2 weeks at this very friendly hotel in August. The staff, cleaners, waiters, animation team go out of their way to make you feel very welcome. Plenty of food choices, rooms comfortable and very clean. Plenty of sunbeds around the pool and lots of activities to join in (if you want!). This is an ideal holiday for families... More

This was my first trip to Bulgaria and chose this hotel because my daughter and I wanted a relaxing holiday away from the hustle and bustle of a busy resort. We traveled on 11th August 2014 for one week and transfers to the hotel took 1 hour each way and there were no multiple drop-offs or pick-ups as is usual.... More

This hotel is in need of a refurbishment, as you enter the hotel the main reception is very dated. The rooms are very spacious and clean and can not fault the great job the cleaners do on a daily basis. Most mornings when we went for breakfast if we were in restaurant after 9.30am then there were no tables made... More

Well, what can I say. This is one of the few holidays that we would love to go back to. On arrival at Burgas airport we were told that as we were the only passengers travelling to the Rui Helios Bay we would be travelling by taxi. Arrived at the hotel at 0330 to a nice glass of fruit juice.... More
