Since booking this hotel and reading the reviews we were worried about what we had signed up for. After a 3.5 hour flight and a 4 hour transfer we arrived at about 3am to be quickly checked in and shown to our rooms. There was food and water in our rooms incase we were hungry. All though the rooms were cleaned everyday this remained here for 3 days until we asked the maid to take it away. On our 4th night we had a leak coming in both our rooms through the walls and ceilings. The receptionist immediately came down with towels and then rang for an electrician. As the electrics had to be turned off we were happily allowed to stay in reception that night until our new rooms were ready the next day. We were also allowed to use the lobby bar for free even though you are supposed to pay for drinks after 11pm. The next day we were given new rooms after old guests had checked out and the rooms were cleaned. There were 5 of us and we always all had sunbeds, they were never a problem to get. Only problem is the lack of British guests. The food for breakfast was nothing worth getting up for but at tea time there was always something different on. If you're picky you'll starve while here but if you aren't afraid to try new things you will be fine. There was always a snack bar in which did pizza, burgers/sausages and chips/potatoes and salad everyday. Entertainment for adults is none existent but Is good for the kids both day and night. It is only a short walk down 170 steps to the beach with a cocktail bar that do 2-4-1 cocktails and has plenty shops bars and restaurants. All in all if you're expecting the ritz then you'll be disappointed but if you're not you'll be fine. Loved it here

This was a cheap all inclusive holiday for myself and my 2 young children. I went 3 star as I wanted to be away for 2 weeks. I paid for 3 star and that is what I got. It could have been a little cleaner, but the staff were all lovely and helpful and Albena is a beautiful part of the Country. The kids pool was great fun for my 2 and they enjoyed being there very much. As did I. All in all, a good value break. I would recommend for families with kids.

Room Tip: If you want to walk to the beach from the hotel with a buggy, wheelchair or you have poor mobility...

I have been back a week now, after booking a very cheap all inclusive holiday within 3 days of departure. We checked out the reviews below. We actually were terrified but it was too late. However, we arrived at the Hotel at midnight to be greeted by a very helpful receptionist who gave us keys and food for evening. The room was bright and airy with a double and single bed, it was a room to sleep.

Ok this is not the same standard 3* we come to expect with Hotels in UK but this hotel had all the basic amenities and was a very comfortable stay. The food was definitely different each evening but mostly Pork and Rice with some interesting dishes. But if you booked with the right tour operator you get a Dine Around which lets you visit very nice restaurants around the resort for free. Definitely visit the Mexican!! :-)

Overall, the resort was pretty quiet for the more relaxed holiday maker. Lots of things to do don't get me wrong. The beautiful beach is a walk down a lot of steps but once you are there you have 2 sun loungers and umbrella waiting for you and just 1 minutes away from a hotel which you can use for free ice-cream and drinks and afternoon snacks. You can get a train around the resort for 3 lev or a free shuttle bus.

Had a fantastic holiday and definitely would say if you would like a cheap get away in a pleasant resort I'd say get yourself to Albena and try Hotel Kompas.

I was very wary about going to this hotel after booking because of the bad reviews. But all the staff were really polite and very happy to help, very little English but there was always someone around to translate. The room was very clean and just what I needed, and was cleaned, bed made and fresh towels everyday. The facilities were very clean and the animation team were brilliant and made our stay, they made so much of what little resources they had! The only negative to the holiday was the food, it was awful and the same stuff everyday. However I am a fussy eater but found something to eat at each mealtime. The snack bar wasn't so bad. You get what you pay for really

Mam Dad ( 50ish ) Daughter (18)
We have stayed in Albena previously and enjoyed the location.
On this occasion we decided to try a different hotel same location. BIG MISTAKE.
On arrival, Reception staff need a personality transplant, non welcoming to keep it polite.
Room, ok but dated could do with a re-vamp ( not a botched touch up like rest of hotel).
Public area`s clean, but limited seating,as this is the only wifi area.
Pool area clean and tidy with children entertainment (nothing for adults as in previous )
With food we had wanted to try a variety of different tastes, but:
Breakfast: same crap different day, only variety was some days no beans (never seen a slice of bacon yet.
Lunch: never ate in restaurant,just used pool snack area, again repeatative.
Dinner: Variety available.
Food in general, we struggled to eat as we have yet to taste hot food, always lukewarm. On one occasion a dish was replenished and it was cold, so temp never checked by chef (haha,chef!!!)
Hot water station? (no, lukewarm water stations) so no hot tea/coffee available.
In general:
Cold water stations: in lobby bar area ,always empty never any cups, I asked reception for more water to take medication was told maybe later or water in restaurant, went to restaurant, no water!!
Came back after day out, room had been serviced but no toilet rolls, I asked reception,then 1 hour later I asked again, was told maybe later, I requested Manager bring them and within 2 minutes we had some delivered.
Lobby bar ran out of drinks, ice and plastic glasses, I was asked to bring back plastic glasses to use again, I refused. Our drinks were available in other bars but lobby bar staff did not replenish for remainder 3 days of our stay.
Always told by every request made. MAYBE LATER.
Staff do not like English customers staying,(as customers are mainly German/Russian on one occasion I was overlooked at service, to hear staff comment oh he is English.
Overall: Albena again, maybe,but prices have changed,cheaper in other resorts.
Kompas Hotel : NEVER AGAIN, should change it`s name to the Maybe Later Hotel

Room Tip: no room advise it is pot luck, as you have young familys and teenage groups staying

We were dreading our stay here after reading the reviews, food wasn't great, rooms were reasonable, beds not made up every day but towels were changed, tip expectations irritating on arrival. The Animation team were fantastic and made our stay fun. Location pretty good, close to amenities and beach. Facilities also offered at beach.
