This is my second visit to the Belmont and it hasn't changed a bit. The rooms are nicely furnished and comfortable although no bath just a shower. The food is no different from any other hotel in bulgaria, edible . The spa has a steam room sauna and a swimming pool which is always to cold ( like all pools in bulgaria ) it also has its own bowling alley and nightclub which are never busy. Not many English nationals seem to stay here and the staff do speak limited English. The hotel is set in the forest just outside the resort and runs a mini bus service to lift stations 1 and 2. If you want to go out in the evening a taxi will cost you 10 lev ( £5) each way but to be honest the après ski in Pamporovo is limited. If you want that then go to borovets.Pamporovo is very quiet which is why i go there.
But be warned, if you have a serious accident don't let them take you to the local hospital. I had a serous injury and was taken there and no one speaks English and they have no medication, it was the worst experience of my life. Lets just say I absconded because I feared for my safety. The nearest descent hospital is in Plovdiv, about 80 miles away. But who knows what that is like. It is bulgaria.
The skiing is good in Pamporovo for beginners, experts would get bored very easily as there are only 2 black runs and about 5 red runs but i Must say, when the snow is good they do preparer the runs very well ( in my opinion better than austria ) , the ski pass is cheap and it never feels busy ( apart from school holidays) plus its cheap to eat and drink on the mountain. Any questions, feel free to ask.
