This place is now officially the most horrible hotel I have ever stayed in. I am sure that many of the positive reviews that were left here are bought. All the rooms have an issue with the shower, the sink in most rooms is over flowing. The guys are generally not kind. One time we asked for towels, they said... More

Our family of 2 adults and 3 children (14, 11 and 5) had a great 10 night stay at Emerald. It was our first time visiting Ravda. The swimming pools were lovely and clean, we enjoyed using them all including the indoor pool during the hottest time of the day which was very handy. Always plenty of space around the... More

My wife and I had a wonderful stay in this hotel. The manager and his staff were courteous and efficient. From the airport transfer at 3.00am to the final check out we were made to feel special and valued. My wife loved the spa and the pool. The hotel has a number of great relaxation areas to sit, read and... More

As a former apartment owner I have to agree with a lot of negative comments. I attended the formal opening and for 2 years life there was excellent. Suddenly droves of children appeared and used the resort interior as a playground, I could see the furniture/furnishings age with wear & tear. The management lost control of a situation, which would... More

Whilst we pull up to the front of the Emerald I was amazed at the size of the place. The exterior of the building definitely look 5 star, however this is a completely different story once inside. The checkin staff were polite but didn't speak any English which made booked in a laborious task. Once we reached our room, which... More

Booked this resort through Owners direct which is website that offers apartments. (This place is primarily a hotel). We were picked up from the airport by the hotel taxi which made things straight forward. Whilst you travel to Ravda from the airport you may be thinking, like i was, where the hell have i booked but once you get to... More

We've been to emerald several times now and it just keeps getting better. The complex is fantastic. The pools are excellent and the grounds and apartment are lovely. It is very relaxed and clean. The village of Ravda is typical Bulgarian which we love, if you want a pie and only fools and horses go to sunny beach. Ravda improves... More

The hotel was clean and well maintained . Trying to communicate in English was a problem as the staff were not very confident with this.Mainly Russians use this hotel so caters more for them. W ish we would have known that the complex starts to shut down in September after the Russians go back home. The sky bar was never... More
