“relaxing holiday”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2013

spent 2 relaxing weeks at the Ivana 5-19 July 2013. Family room which was adequate but the child bed mattress was very thin. Daughter slept on couch for 2 weeks. Rooms were cleaned every day but not very thoroughly. Pool is good as it has steps in and is around 5ft deep all over with a seperate kiddies pool. It is kept very clean and no broken tiles which we have encountered before. Always found some thing to eat for breakfast although it tends to cater for eastern european taste. A lot of nationalities stay here especially Russian and Polish who tend to keep to themselves although one or two were friendly. A very special mention for Dany and Giovanni at the poolside bar. They both work very long hours but always with a smile and time for a chat even when busy. They made our holiday memorable as we stopped for a few every evening. All in all a great holiday which is what you make it. Also recommend the Star Inn as they have a varied menu with great service and everything cooked to perfection.

Room Tip: ask for a room overlooking the pool as you will have the sun most of the day.

This is our 4th holiday in Sunny Beach and I travelled with my partner and my daughter and her friend (both 16) This is by far the best hotel we have stayed in. Our room was cleaned every day and we had clean towels again every day. The sheets were changed every couple of days and the maids were constantly cleaning the floors and windows etc. I really cant fault the hotel the air con was brilliant and a fridge in the room was a bonus to keep drinks cool. All the staff were really friendly and to be honest considering what we paid the breakfast was also relly good but dont expect a full english - There was plenty of fruit and cold meat, cheeses etc.
A special mention must go to Darina and her partner in the lobby bar - She was a perfect hostess and helped us book tables at restaurants and advised where to avoid!! She has picked fantastic staff who always have time for you no matter how busy they are. I must say the strawberry Daiquir is just to die for - its worth going there for that alone!!
Cant wait to go back next year as this hotel really is a gem.

although i have been going to bulgaria for 20yrs this was my 1st stay at this hotel. Looks good from outside and inside was also nice, pool good size and nice greenery all round not just concrete buildings closing in on you.The staff are very freindly and the hotel is spotless although our room was not always cleaned thoroughly but clean towels everyday and plenty of loo rolls left in the toilet.Bed was not the most comfortable but i have slept in worse.When we arrived at 2.30 am we were given room on 3rd floor but it had no balcony so asked if we could change and were given a huge room on 5th floor the balcony could easily fit 2 sun loungers and table and chairs, there were no problems about changing and staff were really good about it.Breakfast was not the best but always found something to eat i would definitely not go looking for a full english breakfast like many guests did surely people can manage 2 weeks without bacon.Plenty of room round pool and sun loungers were always available.We booked 3 weeks at hotel and price was excellent value although we had 5 days away in the mountains staying with bulgarian freinds.I prefer to be a little nearer the centre but for 1lev the local bus was great.I would definitely use the ivana again as the surroundings were lovely and staff 1st class.

Arrived home last week from 2 weeks at this hotel. After reading some of the reviews on here my party and i were dubious of what we would arrive to at breakfast the 1st morning but have to say everything i read on here must have just been a bad experience by them, as the only fault and it is a minor 1 is the toaster as depending on which 1 you used depended on how many times it needed to be put through. We only stayed B&B due to the prices being so cheep to eat out but the bar staff were very friendly and easy to talk to no matter what time of day or night it was. All in all myself and the people i went on holiday with would certainly think about coming back to this hotel in the near future.

Room Tip: pool rooms get the sun all day but room to the rear seem to be less noisey and in the shade all day

We stayed in July 2012 (have just got round to writing a review as was looking at reviews of the hotel we are going to this year) We loved this hotel! the staff were so friendly and helpful, everything was spotless, we didn't get up early enough to try the breakfast but we did get pizzas by the pool which were great! drinks were pretty cheap compared to other bars but we also went to the supermarket nearby to get beer ect to drink on the balcony, the room has a fridge which was great and the air conditioning worked fine but it turned itself off if you had the balcony door open - we solved that by sitting a heavy fridge market on the button on the door that would turn the air con off. The hotel is just far away enough from the strip if you want peace and quiet but its close enough that you could walk there no problem. The beach was about 3 minutes away, as close as you could be without being on the beach. The hotel was really nice inside and out, and not too busy! pool was lovely. I think it was the best one we seen especially for the price we paid (£450 each for 2 weeks b+b) we did wander through the big hotels on the beach which were nice but they were huge and far too busy for my preference. Thomson had made us think this hotel was alot further from the beach than it actually was as the map is misleading and doesn't show the hotel where it actually is! Wouldn't return to Bulgaria as I like to try different places but if we did we would definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: We had a view of a large field pretty much, was fine for us as it was nice and quiet and better than...
