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

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

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

My wife and I have just returned after a 2 week stay at this complex. We stayed in a Studio apartment rented out directly by the owner. We had no real complaints with the apartment, but had issues with the complex failing to provide any clean towels or bedding for the duration of our stay. Speaking with reception was fruitless....
