We were slightly sceptical about staying at this hotel... but we could not find any fault. I think a lot of people have too high expectations of what they want therefore aren't happy! The hotel is very clean, the staff are friendly and the rooms are clean. We got clean towels and bedding every day, the maids are always helpful and friendly.
In fairness - compared to standards in England this probably wouldn't pass as a 4*, it would happily settle as a 3* - but bear in mind Bulgaira is still a developing country, and Sunny Beach has done REALLY well! The place as a whole is clean and tidy, the locals are very friendly and this continued to the hotel. The all inclusive food is fairly nice - please don't expect a huge bangquet morning noon and night - the buffet is a good range of hot and cold food for meat eaters and vegetarians. The lady who is front of house on the resturaunt is so polite and always asked us how we were doing.
Some people have said the staff seem a bit fed up - but really, they earn on average in a month what us brits will earn in a day, and most of the staff seemed to be there 24 hours a day nearly! So it's a credit to them, they seem to work really hard.
The hotel seemed to be mainly German and Polish people staying, who were all really friendly. The only real trouble makers (I hate to say it) were the english club 18-30 people! There were a couple of nights we could hear people knocking on doors late at night and whatever, but not nearly as bad as some people say! The swimming pool is GORGEOUS, the rooms are a lovely big size and cleaned daily. If you want a nice, decent hotel with decent food then this is the hotel! NOT recommended for families or older people, seriously, it is most deffinatley a hotel for groups of young people or young couples. The location is fab, cross the main road and you are practically at the top of the main strip of all the bars, resturaunts etc, and it's a 5 minute walk to the beach!
So all in all, we were REALLY happy with our stay here. Of course there were a few minor faults, but no hotel is perfect! If you are laid back and easy going and just happy to be on holiday away from the 9-5 daily grind, you will really enjoy this hotel! We will deffinatley be going again next year!!!
Sunny beach as a whole is FANTASTIC. For those who want a sunbathing/bit of shopping/lots of partying hotel - Sunny Beach is perfect!!! And SO cheap it's unreal. About 2 lev for a huge pint of beer (about £1) a meal for 2 people plus 2 beers works at around 25 lev (about £13) and 3 cocktails for 10 lev (about £5!!!!)
