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

We stayed at the Santa Marina holiday village as this was the venue for our friends' wedding. The holiday complex is well designed, clean and offers plenty of choice for both children and adults. Above average facilities and with five swimming pools, plenty of bars and restaurants, and great customer service, the Santa Marina really was exceptional value for money.... More

Santa Marina is exactly what its name says, a holiday village. There are many 3-4 level villas built on a large hill on the sea side. The gardens are green and very well maintained, there are many pools (I think 5) with as many restaurants. You can also find some shops, supermarkets, tennis courts and a Gym (not the best... More

Santa Marina is a very nice villa complex with great facilities including several restaurants, pools, bars, children's playgrounds and supermarkets. The villas are spread over a very green area with lots of trees and plants. It's located quite close to the beach and seems to be targeting families with one or several children. Even if we don't yet have a... More

If you love green gardens and walking in alot of stairs, this is the place for you. We stayed at this family resort for a week and had a small baby and elderly people in our family. There is a large amount of stairs and a steep incline all over the resort. My old parents were unlucky and got a... More
