We had perfect vacation with my family in this wonderful hotel. The room was very spacious, clean, comfortable and nice view. We loved to have dinner in the restaurant. It was very delicious and the service was at high level. The staff was very friendly and professional.....and the SpA is the best that I have visited ever. The indoor swimming... More

I have a problem when hotels spend thousands on decorative towers and fake rock fountains in the lobby and then buy the cheapest pillows. When it comes to 5-star hotels the devil in the details. And they do not get the 5-star details here. I wouldn't expect for the water to raise up to my ankles when I take a... More

Let me start with the good side of the hotel. Разположен на хълм и е изолиран от градските шумове, cleanliness is a very high level in the rooms and public areas. The hotel is in very good condition considering that it is not brand new. The pool is great, the children's pool is spacious and the jacuzzi is one of... More

Dear Mrs. Rumyana, I regret that you felt disappointed from your stay at our hotel. Please have in mind that the room type you have booked (twin standard room) is without a view. These type of rooms are with lower price due to the fact that they are on the first floor and there is lack of view. At check-in... More

When you book 4 or 5 stars hotel your expectations are at high level and when it happens the criteria is not met, you' re a bit disappointed. This is exactly my case and experience with the hotel... The hotel is nice itself, the SPA area as well. I had a very average massage and this is the first thing... More

There are a couple of downsides to this property. One is the restaurant which is rather poor. The staff is not really interested in the customers and if you come for breakfast towards the end you will only find dirty, not cleaned tables. What was strange for us was that it is self-service in a 5* property (from organizing cutlery... More

We had really nice weekend there with my family. The rooms were clean, the restaurant is good, a little expencive. We have some minor problems with the TV in our room but they were instantly settled. The best thing there is the SPA center, and the indoor pools. You have to use a car for reaching the city center. I... More

The hotel has spacious (35m2) and good equipped rooms. It has very good view with comfortable furniture. Warm and live atmosphere through all parts of hotel. Polite and communicative stuff. The Spa is absolutely fabulous. So many saunas, "relax" rooms, and variety of swimming pools... Good gim. Fantastic massages, some innovative. Although breakfast has some new/old style moments, definitely need... More

Did not seem 5 star but if you want to be close to the center but also have a quiet hotel with a great outdoor pool to sunbathe this is ideal. The indoor spa is a but small for the size of hotel. Also breakfast was mediocre. But for what we wanted it worked out fine. We had a 'sky... More
