We stayed here for a week at the start of July. Weather was great, staff were great, hotel was good too! Especially with the beachfront location, you can't really ask for better! Probably 3* in UK terms, but that is all that you need when you are only in your room to sleep. There was always some space around the... More

Plenty of shops, bars, restaurants, there were horse and cart rides (30 lev for 20 mins), electric scooter hire (5 lev for 10 mins), parasailing (50 lev - 1 person, 90 lev... More

The food was a bit samey most nights, they did try mixing it up with one or two different dishes per night but the majority of it was the same every night. I have to say the meat wasn't up to much either it was tough and looked like it had been reheated to hell most nights. The staff were... More

We have been to many Riu platinum hotels and whilst the staff and the food was the usual standard unfortunately nothing else was! The entertainment staff daytime were very good but the evening entertainment was very "Butlins come to the Riu" and unfortunately if you had chosen a second sitting dor dinner you had little or no chance of seat...

Turned up at the hotel and it was quite a long process, but was offered a glass of refreshing juice and a bottle of water, which was on request within the all inclusive. The Animation team were alot of fun and very enthusiastic. If you don't want to join in, they don't pester you, which is nice if you just... More

Firstly to say we purposely booked the evening flight out and the night flight back (saving £350) so we have no complaints over times or the dark 75-minute transfer, unlike some others, who perhaps didn't do their research. On arrival, everything went like clockwork, refreshments offered, and off to bed at 03.30. Just to note that we asked for a... More
