My Wife & I recently stayed at the L&B Hotel & are already looking to return next year!
We were a little sceptical as to whether the hotel could really be as good as the reviews we had seen but, with one or two very small exceptions, it really did live up to it's hype.
On arrival we were greeted by a very friendly guy (sorry, but I can't remember his name)on reception who dealt with our check-in quickly & efficiently.
When we got up to our room we were surprised at the size of it.We just had a standard double but it was one of the largest "standards" we have ever stayed in.It was also spotlessly clean & had a large,clean wetroom type bathroom.
Everywhere we went in the hotel was spotlessly clean & every member of staff we came into contact with was friendly,professional & helpful when required.
We probably didn't spend as much time in the hotel as previous reviewers did so we probably didn't build up quite as much of a rapport with the staff as others seem to have done,this is down to our constantly being "out & about" not any reflection on the staff.
We ate in the hotel a couple of times & on both occasions the food was absolutely delicious.The prices for the food & drink in the hotel were also incredibly reasonable,as were the prices in the on-site shop.
On the subject of location, this hotel is a couple of streets back from the main road through Sunny Beach & is in a nice quiet location yet still only 5 minutes walk to the centre with it's abundance of restaurants,bars,shops & clubs.
Now, on to the minor "niggles" we had with the hotel.
The first is the breakfast. There was always a pretty good choice of food available on the buffet but,unless you were there on the stroke of 8am, the hot food was rarely above tepid(not nice when it's scrambled egg!) There was always a good choice of fruit,cereals,cold meat & cheese etc. to choose from as well as bread (however the toaster is interminably slow!)
The only other issue was the tiny balcony.Our room was at the back of the hotel overlooking the pathway to town & had the tiniest balcony. We had a small table & 2 chairs but it was a little "tight" if we both wanted to sit down!
Please don't be put off by my "niggles" this is a truly nice hotel which is very well run,has friendly,professional staff & is a credit to the owners.
On a more general subject, Sunny Beach is the ideal place to go if you're looking for an ideal holiday to relax & unwind or alternatively if want to party 'til your kidneys hurt!.
The whole area is packed with restaurants,bars,shops,hotels & clubs. The prices are also incredibly cheap, we were there for 10 days on a B&B basis & struggled to spend £500. This includes eating & drinking as much as we wanted (some days more than others!!) as well as buying gifts,cigarettes etc.
You can expect to pay anything between 40p & £1.30 for a large beer, around £1.50 for a (very) large vodka & we were paying about £15-£20 for a (very good)meal for two with several drinks!
If you're after a cultural or sightseeing holiday this may not be the one for you.There is not a great deal to see & do apart from the standard "trip to a traditional village",off-road safari & party cruises type things.However, I would highly recommend a trip to Old Nessebar Town. It takes about 10 minutes on the reqular buses (about 40p each way) & is a truly beautiful little town, well worth taking half a day or more to have a nice wander around.
The transfer from Bourgas Airport takes approx. 1/2 an hour & I would highly recommend using the "sunnybeachtransfershuttle" that can be booked online through the HHB Taxi service, 24 Euros return for two people.
I would highly recommend this hotel & Sunny Beach in general to anybody who is looking for an affordable, relaxing holiday.In Sunny Beach you can choose to do as much or as little as you like at a very affordable price, we will be going back!!
I think I have covered everything in this review but if you have any questions then please feel free to contact me & I will try my best to answer them.
