We booked a late deal to Albena at the Hotel Amelia with Balkan holidays but the day before we were due to leave we had an Email to say that our Hotel had been changed to the Borjana. We couldn't really do much about it so off we went. First impressions were that it looked a little dated, at least from the outside. Our room, however was fine, with a wonderful view of the Black Sea. Everywhere was very clean, the towels and linen were changed regularly, the air con very efficient and the beds comfortable. This hotel is ON the beach. The fine, golden sand is kept clean, no evidence of any litter, broken glass etc. Sun beds and umbrellas are free, which is a bonus. The animation team were amazing, they work very hard, always with a smile on their faces. We didn't really take part in any activities offered but enjoyed watching the aerobics, boule competitions, volley ball ........... If you have children,( up to early teens) this is perfect. The pool is safe, there is lots going on to entertain them and the resort itself has wonderful facilities for every age. We never saw any bad behaviour from children at all, maybe because they were mostly German or eastern Europeans!!! The British are in the minority at this hotel.
We had originally booked bed and breakfast at the Amelia and the Borjana is AI. We could have upgraded but decided to stay as we were and try the local restaurants which were great value for money. The food at the hotel was fab. A wonderful choice for breakfast. The coffee, especially, was lovely. We left very early in the morning and we were even offered our breakfast in a box to take with us. The only negatives were that everyone seemed to wait for a tip and that the exterior of the hotel needed a makeover.
