This holiday works very well for us - we are a couple with 2 boys 14 and 9. We started coming here 5 years ago just because it ticks all of the boxes for us (well most anyway). 1. The cost is reasonable for a family of four during the 6 weeks holiday (around £2800). 2. It's self catering or... More

If you want a holiday of bars, nightclubs and noise til the early hours then don't come here. We definitely didn't want any of that so ended up here. An incredible complex with everything you could possibly want. The apartments are spacious and well appointed. The complex is massive but nothing is ever over crowded. There are five beautiful pools... More

This is our first trip to Bulgaria and didn't we choose the right place. The apartments are clean and ours overlooked the sea. Not all do and of you are further up the hill you could do some steep walking but there are shuttle buses running around the site all the time so no need to worry. All the pools... More

I have been visited Santa Marina several times as it's close to my partners family home. Yes I do agree that the reception staff are above themselves and are rather rude and a bit dim. However. I am shocked to find that some people are referring to the staff at security and other employees are rude and aggressive. For myself... More

Found this resort to be average, apartment was basic with air conditioning only in the main room and not yet bedroom which made for some uncomfortable sleeps. We requested a baby travel cot but this wasn't in the room for our arrival so we had to call again for this to be arranged and told we had to pay 10Euros... More

Santa Marina is a very large resort with some good amenities and nice restaurants. It is popular with young families and seems to cater to Russian tourists. However, the front desk and security staff were exceedingly unhelpful and provided very limited information begrudgingly if at all. We discovered by treking back to reception that it's necessary to give a deposit... More

It's a large, gated, clean, safe complex for the kiddies to run around in. Several pools. Clean apartments with very updated clean facilities, and extremely well presented. Several,restaurants on site, with... More

Santa Marina is a great apart hotel near Sozopol. It is a gated complex, the apartments are well designed, but nothing too fancy. Santa Marina has 5 swimming pools and after me and my wife spent 8 days In there - we wished we could spend at least another week there. The breakfast is OK, but bear in mind that... More

We booked the holiday village for a stay with visiting family and chose it for convenience. Sadly, we were disappointed on most counts. The village itself has well-maintained grounds and a nice location with sea views. The management (with the exception of the restaurants, where staff were helpful and friendly and food was good) left lots to be desired. Very... More

Pros: Fantastic location, really nice staff, really nice apartments, fantastic pools, easy walk to great beach, inexpensive restaurants with good food and friendly service, polite and quiet fellow guests even when full. Free wired internet (or can rent a wifi router at the front desk--but see below). This is a stunning, immaculately maintained property with gorgeous landscaping,, five beautiful pools,... More
