Hotel was really nice but being allinclusive you had to go to the top floor for food and drinks. Staff not very pleasent. Food was horrible and ended up in bed for a couple of days with food poisoning.

I dont understand some of the bad reviews on this page! I have just returned from this hotel an had not one complaint! Clean tidy and friendly staff! I'd return I'n a heartbeat! I'd recommend the heel meridian to anyone! Best I have stayed I'n! Situated amongst local bars and restaurants and near beach! Sunny beach itself is cheap and welcoming anywhere u go!! Please visit u will not regret it!!

Have just returned from a week at the meridian.......personally try not to pay too much attention to review sites as am quite flexible but felt the need to write about this!!!
On arrival (early hours of the morning) seemed pretty good. Reception staff fine. Very quiet and managed to get in the lift to take luggage to our room on 2nd floor. Very pleasantly surprised....HUGE room, lovely clean bathroom, stocked mini-bar, comfy beds, air conditioning and very clean. Sadly i think we were just lucky to be put in a family room that was obviously recently refurbished.
Booked half-board so went to try breakfast first morning..... DO NOT BOTHER. Can't get a lift up to 11th floor but thought walk up 9 flights of stairs would be good exercise! Sadly disappointed on arrival. We are NOT fussy eaters, but struggled to find anything edible. All food (what little there was) was cold and dried-up, no hot drink machines working, staff not interested, plates cleared before you have finished (so do not get up for a glass of water mid-meal), tables filthy, no cutlery, etc. Did not mind too much as didn't expect anything fancy. Fast-forward to dinner.......EVEN WORSE. Unrecogniseable 'meat', dried up salad (think from breakfast!), but some lovely veg (cabbage and peppers)!
If your booking gives you the option, go b&b/room only. Loads of lovely places to eat right outside that cater for all tastes. Food and drink VERY VERY cheap. Especially liked 'Lotus' restaurant, 'The House' bar and the family-run place right outside the hotel entrance. If you are not a big drinker, don't bother going to that particular area. Everything is alcoholic and it is always 'happy hour'!!! Great value for money, but you are made to feel arkward if you just want to sit and have coffee.
Beach STUNNING.....you have to pay 7lev each for sunbed and parasol at the beach but worth every penny. If you don't want to pay, make sure you sit well away from the sunlounger areas as you will be moved on by the very stern beach patrol!!
Overall, an enjoyable holiday if you use the hotel as a base to shower, change and sleep only. (DON'T use their pool; tiny, overcrowded, tatty and they charge 5lev per lounger which are broken plastic, no matresses).
Don't bother keeping leftover levs for airport. Tiny with overpriced coffee shop, small duty-free shop and not much else. Had to queue outside the airport building (and that was for a night flight which wasn't very busy) just to check-in as it really is that small!!. Cigarettes, alcohol, etc. readily available in resort and very cheap for taking back home. Also ,can buy some nice fake bags, purses, sunglasses but not much else apart from tacky souvenirs. Tattoo and piercing parlours everywhere...very clean and good value.
Would not return to Bulgaria although it was a nice holiday. Too little to do at night if your over 21 or not an alcoholic!! Very welcoming to Germans (of which there are loads), but not so much with the Brits, although there are exceptions.
Be sure to go June/July/Aug, when weather is good as the beach and sea are beautiful (Red bar at beach very good too!) but if you can't go outside due to rain there is not much else going on.

Just got back from a week long trip. Party of 14 ranging from 2 to 65 years. First trip to Bulgaria with no expectations. Hotel was great. Rooms cleaned daily with fresh towels. Room was large with great floor to ceiling windows- felt like a city centre apartment at night. Plenty of space around pool- you do have to pay for sunbeds but not a big deal for us. Bar staff were very friendly and accommodated many late nights! It is the quietier end of Sunny Beach but that suited us and there are plenty of other bars and restaurants around.
