What I liked: (a) excellent and quiet location, right on the beach, but also surrounded by many trees; (b) big rooms, with big beds and comfortable pillows; (c) the parking place is secured so the cars are safe there. What I did not like: (a) the beach is rather dirty, with very few sunbeds, very likely not to find one... More

Hello, First of all, hotel is very well located in a quiet place. We had one of the best room not facing the swimming pool and very close to the black sea. Room is big and spacious. Terrace is great even though dirty with birds all around. Bathroom is a bit old school but average. When it comes to service,... More

This hotel is rated as 5 star, but I feel it is an average 3 star - food is limited in choice, queueing at bars long and attitude of some of the staff verging in hostile - not serving you at bars but preferring to serve other nationalities before you, for example. On checking out, we couldn't leave the hotel... More

This resort has a mixture of several good and bad aspects. Let me start with the bad. When we arrived for check in we were surprised to learn they do not accept American Express. On Booking.com they indicate they do so be aware. We check in and once the payment is done the manager lady comes out and starts yelling... More

The hotel is big and only one section was open. The hotel is a little isolated but the frequently running public bus to Varna has its terminal just outside the hotel. The five stars are slightly overrated. I would think three to four stars would match the Western European standard. The personnel was very friendly and helpful. We had booked... More
