Our first time to Bulgaria and to be honest I was pleasantly surprised at how nice the hotel was. We were greeted with a cold glass of juice and the friendliness of the staff continued throughout the whole holiday. The hotel was clean, the sea view rooms we had were spacious and the balconies were literally over the sand. The... More

I want to explain explicitely the spa infrastructure: such as a soap massage, a classical full body massage followed peeling, sauna is really good and not expensive. Polite personnel in a clean environment with a lot of respect for privacy

Our room was lovely, bright and airy with a huge balcony. We had a pool and sea view. The pool as huge and had... More

We had a very relaxing week - it is the perfect location for this as beach is just minutes from the hotel - we also saw dolphins whilst sitting on the beach! We never had a problem getting a sun lounger and only a handful... More
