“All you need for a happy holiday.”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

We will be going back to meridian for sure the food is lovely always something to choose here to eat. Breakfast there was a good choice all kinds of eggs done fresh all the time large choice of breakfast, the only negative we have is they were always running out of cutlery and cups for coffee/tea, this was irritating at times plus only 1 toaster which was very slow indeed. As for lunch and tea again a wide choice always plenty meat on if any one leaves hungry its there own fault because lots to choose from, the chefs are good and the cake is so beautiful iv`e never had sponge so light and gorgeous.If I had to say negatives it would be the all inclusive bar is on the 11th floor and you have to use this after 6 pm, which is backwards when the entertainment is by the pool on bottom floor which is bonkers. The other thing which drove us mad was the lifts breaking down and takes ages. But we would return even after the negatives, as for the rooms we couldn't fault them lovely and clean towels changed every day beds made rooms cleaned daily, the cleaners were wonderful and every one should leave a tip for cleaners we thought. If I could say I wish there was at least some English entertainment at the hotel and other guests were saying the same thing so we all went out else where for this.

Room Tip: best to get top floor so your by the resraurant and don't have to wait for lift.

Just returned from weeks holiday in Meridian Hotel - found the hotel ok - food good range of choice - only negative chips are always cold!!!!! But plenty of meats etc.. Desserts - usual cakey things!!!! Breakfast choices really good. Room was clean, towels changed every day - plenty of space in our room. We were a little apprehensive when we arrived - not used to loud bars in such close proximity and definitely not the Exotic Bar right outside the Hotel - and directly under our balcony. However our fears were unfounded - double glazing on windows worked! Pool area very cramped - but plenty of sunbeds - although you were in very close proximity to the person on the next bed!!! Staff on the whole were friendly and helpful. MAIN TWO NEGATIVES - LIFTS BROKE DOWN DAILY!!!!! AND NO DIET COKE!!!!!!! Found Sunny Beach a lively resort - but everything within easy reach, all amenities open until 11p.m. and some open 24/7. Don't believe all the negative reports - go and sample for yourselves....... ONE MUST - GO TO KHANS TENT - GREAT NIGHT - book at Excursion Shop round the corner - much cheaper than Holiday Company.

Room Tip: Superior rooms very roomy. High floors with side seaview give good view of sea and resort

After reading the reviews on here and people saying horrible things about this hotel & area I say take no notice it was the first time we had been to Sunny Beach Bulgaria & we will go back and to the Meridian,its location is great for the beach & shops,resturants and the nightlife(known as The Strip) which my 21yr old daughter loved!!!! Just outside the hotels are a number of bars and resturants which was great !!! I would say to all those that have put a negative review is get a life your on holiday not havin a week or 2 to moan about anything & everything and if you want 5 star pay the price for 5 star but then they would probably moan at something!!!!! Fab time we had and look forward to returning :-)

Pleasant stay at this hotel, food delicious only ask would be more flavoured yoghurt for the children. Rooms cleaned daily with fresh towels, lifts, though the occasional wait, nothing too bad. Round the pool though a little cramped is tendered too well by a really pleasant man. The animation staff are fantastic with the kids, only ask there would be a bigger playground. Overall our stay was good and almost all staff we had dealings with were nothing but courteous. I would return again.

Me and my partner just had 2 weeks AI at this hotel and I can honestly say it was a total nightmare. Rules were absolutely unbelievable and the service was terrible. food was edible but the only problem was finding utensils to eat it with. Every mealtime I had to go and look for them. i had eat soup holding the bowl in my hands because there were no spoons available, drink fruit juice from a bowl because there were no glasses or cups, you had to look for salt, pepper, vinegar etc. In the end we found out the best way was to take utensils to our room after every meal to make sure we had some. The restaurant bar was a joke. The bar closes at 23.00. then at 23.05 the lights were turned off leaving customers in total darkness ( including disabled people), then at 23.10 the staff made you leave.When you went to leave you had to use the lifts because all the doors to the stairways were locked including emergency exit doors. If a fire broke out how would anybody get out because signs in the lift state DO NOT USE LIFT IF A FIRE BREAKS OUT. When this was pointed out to the Balkan Holidays rep he said it was the hotels problem and not his and he just said thank you and walked away. When he was confronted about this by myself and another guest the next day who had a different complaint the rep started to raise his voice and was told in no uncertain terms not to. As for entertainment, it was non-existent. Do not go to this hotel at any price.

We would like to apologize for causing this inconvenience of your stay unpleasant.
When the restaurant is very busy and people use utensils more than ususal, it happens to delay with loading them, but you can always ask the staff, who will be very happy to help you.
The all inclusive bar closes at 23:00h as it is explained in every describtion of the hotel, but the lobby bars works non stop.

We hope to welcome you back next year and positively surprise you and live up to your expectations.

Just got back from 2 weeks @ the Meridian. It was my husband & I,s first time in Bulgaria & we,ll certainly be back. The hotel was situated by the strip so was always something going on @ night(mainly karaoke). Plenty of shops with "designer clothes". The pool was take your breathe away cold, but once you were in you got used to it. The pool attendant walked round the pool all day emptying ash trays, helping people with sun parasols and generally doing a good job. We found in the 2 weeks we were there there was only 1 day when the food choice wasn,t good for us but saying that there is always soup, salad, chips & bread so no one will ever starve!! The food could have been hotter, a microwave was available but dinner plates were stacked in front of it so impossible to use. Other than waiting for the lifts alot coz they,re always breaking down there is no where to sit after evening meal other than in the restaurant but they turn the lights off @ 11pm. Alll in all it is good value for money & the staff are friendly and helpful.
