Park-Hotel Continental
Ranked #157 of 222 Hotels in Sunny Beach
Reviewed July 14, 2012

me 18, and my friend 23 stayed the the continental bed and breakfast from 2nd-9th july 2012, we traveled with cosmos holidays which we had a rep named chris who was very friendly and helpful. We arrived at the hotel in the early hours of the morning where we were quickly checked in and shown to our room, the hotel staff are polite and speak very good english, i find that if you are polite to people they are polite back. A member of staff carried our cases up to the 3rd floor (bit awkward as there is no lift) and showed us to our room. The room consisted of 2 single beds pushed together, a mini fridge, dressing table, television, mirror,wardrobe, chair/sofa bed, a bathroom with a shower and a pool veiw balcony. The aircon in the room was great and we left it on perminantly which meant the room was always lovely and cool. The rooms are cleaned EVERYDAY so ignore the negative reviews regarding the cleanliness of the hotel as we found it very clean and tidy, the pool is also clean however getting a sun lounger can sometimes be tricky as people leave their towels and go off for hours, so make sure your up early to reserve sun loungers! The breakfast however was not good and was very limited we found it catered for Germans and eastern Europeans rather than western guests, however this was no problem as we decided to eat breakfast out each morning at a lovely little restaurant 'the harp' which was just 10lev each for a full english breakfast which was lovely, definitively recommended! Bulgaria itself is very cheap so no worries if you do not like the food in the hotel as you can eat out for next too nothing. We booked this hotel with Thomas Cook 18-30 however found there were more families rather than young people within the complex which was no problem as it meant when we came in, within the early hours in the morning it was quite late morning meaning we could sleep off the night before! Sunny beach is lovely and is only a 5 min walk from the hotel if you exit from the main reception however be prepared to be hassled by everyone in the street claiming 'they have the best cocktails' but in sunny beach its ALWAYS happy hour, not bad eh! the party reps along the strip are also really lovely and offer barcrawls each night for as cheap as 15lev (£6) we found party patrol to be our favorite and ended up out with them every night! This holiday was booked the week before as a last minute get away and it really did exceed our expectations, hotel is great although make sure you request a room with aircon as we found not everyone in the hotel had this luxury!! i loved sunny beach and continental and would definitely go back tomorrow if i could!

Room Tip: request aircon!

We stayed in the 'prima' part of this hotel. There seem to be different classes of rooms available so watch when you book. We found all the staff to be extremely helpful - reception staff were always happy to help and always did what they promised e.g. when I managed to lock the safe in my room before reading the instructions they fixed it within half an hour. I certainly never experienced any unhelpful/rude members of staff. They even made us a lovely packed breakfast for leaving without us even having to ask for leaving as we had an early flight home.

Plenty of loungers beside the lovely big pool. There are staff always about keeping the whole pool area tidy. Lovely pizzas from the pool snack bar with massive portions of toppings at no extra cost. Oh, and just stay B&B as it's so so cheap to eat and drink out in Sunny Beach. Only first time visitors to Sunny Beach go half/full board or all inclusive.... and then regret it when they find out how cheap it is to eat and drink out. 1 Bulgarian Lev for a 'big' lovely draught beer at most places. The local beer is lovely if you're not one of these beer snobs who is blinded by big international brand names (that are usually brewed locally under licence anyway!!!).

Breakfast was ok. Not great by UK standards but decent by Sunny Beach standards. Nice basic crema topped coffee from the machines that washed my corn flakes down nicely. Cherries seem to be a favourite fruit.

Free wifi in the reception areas is great. You can even pick it up outside by the pool if you pick a lounger in the right area.

Rooms were nice and cleaned every day.

Location of the hotel is good if you want a nice sleep, as it is relatively quiet noise-wise in the area it's in. You can hop on a small road train for a small fee to get into the centre of Sunny Beach in minutes. It leaves from right outside the hotel and runs back and forward to the Kuban, saving you a walk to the main epi-centre of where it all happens. It runs up to midnight. There are plenty of nice places to eat and drink right beside the hotel though so you have a lot of choice.

Room Tip: Stay in 'prima' bit for the best rooms.

my friends and i stayed a week in park continental. it was a pretty average hotel compared to other hotels i had seen around the resort. the staff were so unfriendly and so rude. went down one morning to reception to ask about the safety deposit box in the rooms and the woman on reception grunted at me.breakfast was disgusting. rooms were fine but the staff of the hotel really put me off. i would never come back to this hotel again.

My boyfriend and I have only just got back from this hotel in Agust 2011 and honestly had the best time! We booked our holiday last minute and just wanted a cheap break. We booked through thomson with balkan holidays which were very very good. I read all these reviews before going and was so upset to hear how "terrible" this place is! I had no expectations at all and at one point didn't even really think it was worth going after reading what everybody else thought. I have to say I was extremely happy when we arrived. We had a lovely room over looking the pool, the room was cleaned every single day, we had air conditioning which worked extremely well, a little tv, a fridge and a very large shower. The pool was beautiful and became quite warm throughout the day. The hotel staff were extremely helpful when asking them about excusions and the weather was beautiful the whole week! (about 34 degrees with no clouds at all).The location of this hotel is perfect as it is about a 5min walk to the beautiful beach and straight down the road is full of bars and restaurants and things to do, but is a little way out of all the noise at night. My one and only problem was that the food really was horrible but that really didn't matter as eating out never cost any more than £8 each with drinks included. I have never written a review before but in this case i really had to so that i could let people who have booked this holiday and have read all the bad reviews know that it really is a lovely place! As far as i know we were in the 3 star rooms as we booked with balkan holidays and balkan customers are automatically booked in 3 star accommodation.. so remember to book through them when booking this holiday just to be sure you have the best stay you can :-)

Room Tip: book through balkan holidays

When we arrived at. 3:00 am, we experienced hotel personnel at its finest, strangely enough. I'll just make new travellers note that the hotel has 2 receptions, the one called Continental Park Hotel Prima is the wrong one. But when we had checked in, 2 nice staffpeople escorted us up to our room. We had bought all inclusive and it had to be tested the next day. When you get up there, it was like traveling back in time to 1975. A large dining room in a rundown building with 2-3 tables with buffet. You try to stand in line, like normal people do, but I do not know if it is specifically Russians or Eastern Europeans just can not figure out what a queue is. But one thing I can say the food was really really good! Our room was very normal. They had just got air conditioning. Comfortable beds and clean. We had room overlooking the restaurant, so many eyes looking at us when we sat with our Captain Morgan. The hotel was situated a long walk from the center... But there was free wi-fi in the lounge, very good! When we checked out, we had to tell the receptionist, that we hadn't paid for the rooms yet. So basicly we could had left without paying.

Room Tip: Near the reception!

Wasted one week in, this "hotel", so going to be brief as i do not wast anymore time on this dreadfull place. Rude staff, not welcoming, food recycled and cold so i had to eat out everyday. bed linen and towels with holes and stains, also frayed, room had being given a quick lick of paint but unfortunatly most of it had gone on carpet. Mould and filth in shower and we cannnot understand why they seem so proud of lighting up a filthy mouldy window in corredor. My advise please do not stay in this hotel, go for 4 stars. Thanks

We stayed here in July 2006 (not 2010) and although the hotel was basic it wasnt that bad!! We had read reviews on here before saying it was like a POW camp, so was really worried but it was clean and comfy which was all we needed.

Weather was perfect. We ate out every night & all food was really nice.
Really enjoyed the Barcardi Bar such a laugh! My (now) husband proposed to me here!!

All in all the hotel is basic but clean.....Sunny Beach was lovely, i loved Bulgaria and would go back in a heartbeat!
