This is the best hotel in Albena: great staff, food and location. staff speaks English, German and Russian. Good variety of food. Pools are surrounded by green trees. Very nice and fabulous smelling roses nearby.
Just wanted to get more food suitable to small kids, for example porridges or curd dishes. Kids were not happy to eat only pancakes, pastas and fried potatoes.
Despite that, we'll come back here next year.

The best value for the money. Great service and attitude. I definitely will come back to this one day. It is real 4star hotel after the renovation and its location is very good near by the sea. Food is delicious as it should be and according to my experience in the entire Albena resort - they lean on the good quality as a key advantages among the other sea side complex around the country.

We have enjoyed our holiday in Albena / Sandy Beach which we recommend especially for those with kids. Rooms are very clean and they were redecorated recently. The hotel is closed to the beach with 2 sun beds included. The hotel staff is very friendly and willing to help since the beginning of your stay.
We had a diverse and well cooked food with Mexican night included. It was a lot of fun having the singers and chef cooking Mexican food.

I absolutely recommend Sandy Beach Hotel. I stayed there 7 days in June with my son. The food was excellent, the rooms renovated and the staff were very nice. The only remark is about the animation team, who was busy playing only with the german kids. For some reason they were not paying attention to bulgarian, russian and romanian kids. I think this needs to be changed. It was dificult explaining my 4 year old son, that the animators are there only for the german children.

Room Tip: Higher floors have less noise and if you have a view toward the sea is a plus!
