Stayed here for 10 days from 15 August 2014. The rooms were large and we requested a sea view which was nice. The htoel was clean, food was nice, not amazing which i expected from a RUI. Staff all very helpful and the animation team were lovely. Not too much to do if you didnt want to watch the show... 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

Stayed here as 2 adults and 4 children. Booking was primarily driven by the price followed by the fact I'd never been to Bulgaria before - for a peak season fortnight all inclusive I think the price versus quality gave very good value for money. If you want branded luxury add at least another grand to your booking if you... More

From the moment we set foot in the hotel the staff were very welcoming, we were given some welcoming drinks and were helped to our room, The hotel itself from the outside looked very impressive however on the inside throughout it is quite dated and there is some wear and tear. The room was again quite dated but very clean,... More

I feel compelled to write a review for this hotel as I had read some negative reviews before we went on holiday and I must admit I felt anxious despite the previous reviews being consistently good. I want to reassure anyone who has booked this hotel not to feel concerned about the opinions suggesting that there is an issue with... More
