Location perfect-on the beach but also only a 10-15 min walk right into the centre of Obzor.Food and accommodation very good-only let down is the evening entertainment- which is only covered by the animation team,who do their best, but at least 3 times a week some professional artist should entertain!The staff were very good and happy to put a smile...

We spent a week here in July and loved everything about Obzor and this hotel. 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

Having visited Riu Palace Peninsula(Mexico) a year prior, we thought we'd give another Riu hotel a shot. We didn't really expect service anywhere close to what we received previously given the gulf in prices but we were impressed from start to finish. Situated on the beach front, it finds perfection with flowing greenery on the reverse. The reception desk staff... More

Stayed there for a week in May, large room, very clean, excellent service, was all inclusive, enjoyed the food and drink 24/7, wide choice, even got proseco at breakfast. Right on the beach, where I spent most of my time, watching the Dolphins. Negatives: the ' come on let's have fun team' around the pool and the intermittent loud music... More

Reading some reviews of this hotel I wondered if they had actually stayed in the same hotel! We arrived just before the end of lunch and were welcomed by very friendly receptionists in a far from dowdy lobby. They told us to leave our luggage and go into lunch before checking in. After a very welcome meal we were allocated... More
