Stayed at this hotel for a week. The first impressions on arrival are not good as you have to walk past an Erotic Club to get the entrance. Staff are friendly and welcoming. Rooms are a decent size although noisy up to around 2.00am as there is live music from two bars a short distance away. The beds are hard and we ended up with sore backs in the morning after few nights sleep.
The all inclusive is not what it should be. You can have alcoholic and soft drinks during the day from the poolside bar from 11.00am until 6.00pm. After 6.00pm all inclusive drinks can only be obtained from the restaurant which is on the 11th floor. There is no all inclusive lounge on the ground floor and you cannot take drinks out of the restaurant. So it is basically poolside drinks and then the restaurant until 11.00pm for all inclusive drinks. The food in the restaurant is plentiful but can be a bit repetitive with pork and chicken every night. There is always a shortage of cutlery, salt cellars, cups etc. at mealtimes. Poolside is fine with plenty of sun beds. The hotel location is fine as you are not far away from the centre of Sunny Beach but it is still a busy area. For travel to Nessabar the No.1 bus stop is a five minute walk away on the main road. The fare is 1 Lev for a 10 minute journey to the town. If you are looking for all inclusive this is not the hotel for you. I would pay a bit extra and go for a five star and probably closer to Nessabar.
