Firstly I have to say that some other reviews shock me! This is a lovely hotel and made even nicer by the staff on reception and at the bars! I have added pictures of the hotel room and the view from our ground floor and 4th floor rooms. When we 1st got there we were concerned about our 1 yr old on the 4th floor, no problem to the staff, we were given 2 options and were moved 2 days later as it is a busy hotel. Stayed in a double room with a good bathroom & cracking shower, good sized fridge in the room too.
The breakfast is standard Bulgarian fare and not for me but there is plenty of choice, more importantly, in the bar they serve good food of the menu from about 11am, its really nice which we didn't find out until week 2 as we thought it would be the same as the breakfast room. Recommend the shopska salad! (with the mashtika)
The grounds are fantastic and seeing grapes, figs, tomatoes, pumpkins, olives & carrots all growing in one little place is extraordinary.
The pool is excellent and the bar there is so cheap, sun loungers are free & plentiful.
It is a 10 minute walk to the centre but that walk is filled with shops, restaurants and bars so its a really good location.
We will be back next year and I look forward to seeing the people who made it so good again! Fantastic and pleasant staff!

Room Tip: Ask for a view over looking the pool.

just returned from sunny beach,stayed 3rd aug-17th aug.booked this hotel because of all the good reviews.omg people take note of the bad reviews not the good,wot a dump.the food was disgusting,the rooms were pokey and no air con even though we asked for it.the staff are very rude unless you rate their hotel and are nice to them ,otherwise if you have made any complaint you get talked about,spoken to rudely and get treat like an outcast.other peoples good reviews ,obviously they dont care where they stay and dont have any taste buds.the salads,yogurts,milk,and cold meats werent even kept refridgerated,just left out in bowls and plated to go warm.the chicken was undercooked.this hotel only deserves a 2 star if that.we moved hotel after 3 days thank god to the globus which was lovely on the seafront.food good,rooms lovely,staff great,and even maids were friendly.please dont take ur kids to the trakia garden,they wont like the food,play area shabby.o neills of sheffield.

Just came back from Bulgaria and here is my review of Trakia Garden hotel.
Advantages:
1. The first and the most important advantage is a great value. You have a good hotel at a very reasonable price. For instance, I've paid the early booking fee of only 385 euro for 7 nights (two persons) with HB meals for the general level of quality that was pretty high.
2. Good food (HB).
3. Clean and spacious rooms
4. Good location: 10 min by walk from the beach and from the center of the resort.
5. Friendly and helpful personnel.
6. Good swimming pool with free chanrs and umbrellas.
7. The hotel is in a quiet place.
8. Free wi-fi internet in the lobby

The disadvantages are minor but It's fair to mention them:
1. Just one elevator that is not that big and not fast. Sometimes during the rush hours you have to wait quite a lot if you don't want to reach 5th or 6th climbing the stairs.
2. The pillows are not comfortable
3. It is usually quite wet in the bathrooms so I advise to leave the light (and the blower) on when you leave the room.
4. There is no shampoo in the bathroom
5. There are no safeboxes in the rooms. Maybe you shouldn't expect this form a 3-star hotel, but It would be certainly more convenient for the guests to have safe boxes in rooms rather than use the pay asfe boxes in the lobby.
6. You have to pay for the wi-fi internet in rooms. I consider this to be incovenience since the wi-fi internet in the lobby is free of charge.

I conclusion I want to say that the advantages significanly prevail over the dissadvantages, and, once again, the value of the hotel is great. It is usually occupied by tourists from Russia, Germany and UK.

One tip: I advice you to order a room with air conditioning while booking, casue in this case this will cost you 2 euro/per day in plus, compared to 5 euro/day if you order air condiitioning on arrival.

Summing up, I would certainly recommend this hotel for the vocation at Sunny Beach.

Hotel is very clean and looks like it has had a major re-paint, it is well located with plenty of good pubs and restaurants nearby. Hotel food was good and beer etc quite cheap. Rooms were spacious and cleaned often. Hotel is well run and nothing bad to say except the exchange rate could be bettered elsewhere. Swimming pool was good with plenty of sun beds available all day.

my self and my family are just back we stayed there for a week. I myself was very impressed by the room we had it was very clean well maintained. we did have air conditioning but you have to pay 10 lev per day for this but you better to have it its a very modern system we had the fifth floor
but you may want to ask for air con as im not sure its available on 1st floor
you will be very close to all restaurants and the beach and there is a restaurant attached to your hotel payable local rate its very good and the waiters are very good there funny and friendly
everything in sunny beach is extremely cheap so don't worry about that

we went half board but only eat breakfast as the kids and misses didn't like the dinner menu but i personal y thought was fine so you have to make up your own mind on that one
if you decide to go eat out i recommend the restaurant round the corner from hotel two Minuit walk called the garden its excellent.
but most restaurants are all very good and friendly we were two adults two children and eat out with all our drinks every evening meal for around twenty five pounds i find that extremely cheap compared to the UK
the pool area is very good at this hotel although no kids club it does have games and swing park for the kids so the kids do that for ascertainment
i personal y think this hotel is under rated as a three star i found it to be more of a four star
the rooms do have mini bar which are very cheap to use compare to UK ones

THIS HOTEL ALSO HAS SOME OF THE MOST LOVELY GARDENS YOU WILL EVER SEE HENCE ITS NAME

WEATHER WISE FOR EXTREMELY HOT SO BE CAREFUL TO APPLY USUAL CREAMS

I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS HOTEL FOR FAMILIES AS ITS MORE OF A FAMILY HOTEL

EXCELLENT( **** )

DO GO YOU WONT BE DISAPPOINTED THERE

Room Tip: fifth floor good
