Hubby and I have just returned from Helios Bay Hotel , Obzor, Bulgaria. We had a lovely, lovely place. This hotel is due for refurbishment next year but we felt apart from one or two upgrades everything was pretty good. This resort is quiet and thankfully nowhere near Sunny Beach (which is the Magaluf of Bulgaria) so ideal for families... More

Pros- Rooms are nice, big and clean with ocean views. No bath but good shower. Good sound insulation and air con. Big pool with... More

First time in Bulgaria and picked this hotel because we've stayed in Riu Hotels before. It was a lovely hotel, right on the beach. Spotlessly clean. Food was varied, tasty and hot. Staff were friendly, all speaking excellent English. The entertainment was probably the best I've seen at one of these types of hotels. Its not usually my thing but... More

Been to sunny beach twice before but obzor is so much nicer. Staff were so friendly and welcoming, nothing was too much trouble. I was never much of a beach person before but having it on your doorstep changed my view and we went most days. Restaurant staff were so efficient and nice. Our room with sea view was lovely... More

Picked this hotel because of previous Riu experience and the many fine comments in Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed. Staff were friendly and helpful. The entertainment team were fabulous. Food was good hot and varied. Certain parts of hotel are in need of a make over. Our room was excellent and well serviced. Watch the internet man (this is... More

Really impressed with this hotel. Lovely rooms, clean with balconies facing the sea. Walk in shower was a nice surprise. Ample sun beds around the pool and there were free beds on the beach directly in front of the hotel. Soft drinks and coffee machines at the pool bar, snack bar and restaurant, help yourself. Food was tasty but some... More

This was our first time staying at a Riu Hotel and what a wonderful experience it was. On arriving at approximately 4am we were warmly greeted by the staff who on having allocated our room informed us that refreshments were available! Later that morning at the 'meet and greet' we were given lots of helpful information by Barney the Thompson... More
