It was my second time this hotel so I knew what to wait. The hotel itself is ok, clean, pool area good and the location a little bit out from noice. If you wait excellent all-inclusive, this is not your place. Local beer and drinks were ok, the food was below average. But it is so cheap to eat somewhere... More

One year on from our previous stay at Hotel Kristal we were treated once more to a great family holiday. I didn't really expect last years experience to be bettered but we really did have a wonderful time again. The lobby and main bar area has had a makeover and looks very chic and modern and also the restaurant has... More

When you see the pictures of this hotel, with the nice lobby, pools and pretty large rooms, you might think you're up for a treat. But you're wrong. You're wrong because on top of all that, there are the services who complete a 4 stars hotel. And this is not a 4 stars hotel. The staff from restaurant and bar... More

Had lovely holiday at the Kristal, rooms were very spacious and cleaned everyday, had everything you need. Staff and communal areas great. Food was lovely and available all day somewhere. Only downside was lack of English information as everything written in Bulgarian or German. Not enough sunloungers but this was mostly to people putting towels out but not using till... More

The hotel is very clean and the service is relaxed but effective. The gym is a no good. Internet is no good. Pool area is perfect. But overall very warm... More

The hotel itself is very well kept and managed, clean and nice looking. Rooms are big enough, each one with a balcony. Bathrooms big, everything inside in good working order. Good towels. One big minus: there's no light over the mirror to see your face when shave or put on the make-up. The only spot light is above, in the... More

Rooms - They aren't so great. They look a little poor not for 4 stars Personal - Very very friendly Food - Very good. At the breakfast you have a lot of types and also at lunch and dinner. A lot of cakes :) Position - A little far from the beach Per total it is a good hotel.
