THE GOOD: This is a lovely hotel! The views from our room and from the sky bar, swimming pool and deck are amazing! The hotel is situated next to the beautiful old town of Nessabar, which has numerous restuarants and souvenir shops and overlooks the coast of the black sea. The hotel is modern, spacious and clean. The room was large, clean and our particular room had amazing sea views! There were always plenty of available sun loungers on the sun deck, the pool which is situated on the roof was never busy and there were no children at the hotel throughout our stay. The sky bar which is also on the top floor has amazing views of the coast and Nessabar and had a really nice atmosphere. There is free WIFI which you can access at certain parts of the hotel.
THE BAD: the worse thing about our stay was the 'all inclusive package' to me, it wasnt really worth going all inclusive. The food was ok, (personal opinion) we enjoyed breakfast but choose to eat at local restuarants most evenings, there wasnt a huge choice of meals but again, that was personal preference. The main issue i had was drinks. The all inclusive drinks were ONLY available at the restuarant during meal times, and the downstairs Irish Pub throughout the day, drinks could NOT be taken elsewhere in the hotel! This meant that if you wanted a drink around the pool or sun deck, you had to buy them from the Sky Bar, you couldnt take a drink to your room. Also if you wanted to drink in the sky bar during the evening you had to pay for the drinks. The Irish Pub had no atmosphere.
Although most of the staff were polite and helpfull, especially the 2 guys who worked in the Sky Bar who were both really friendly, there was one member of staff on reception who was just damn right rude! When we asked if he could call a taxi for us (we already had a number) he refused and told us to go call the taxi from our room and waved us away from the reception. He had a very rude attitude.
All in all a really nice hotel and we enjoyed ourselves! Watch out for the taxi's (RIP OFF) the lively part of the town is Sunny Beach resort, about 10 minutes away. For a local person they charge approx 8 LEV, the tried to charge us 35 LEV, we bartered but the lowest any taxi charged was 20 LEV each way! Budget for that if you want to go to a more lively part of the resort as old Nessabar is very quiet!
