We just returned from the Majestic on Sat 13th Aug 2011. The place is totally immaculate, the sunbeds are really comfortable with plenty available if you get to the pool by 10am. The animation team were good fun and did a good job entertaining different senses of humour from Ireland to Russia!!!
The rooms were large and comfortable, but I will say the sofa bed in the lounge which we slept on giving the boys the privacy in the main bedroom was akin to torture!
The climate is superb, warm and a dry heat (no humid conditions as you get in the Carribean for example). We did have one day of VERY strong winds and heavy rain...but that was described as freak weather by the locals.
The food, was plenty and varied, although you didn't need to be a rocket scientist to see some food clearly being recycled from the previous day.
This is where our one week went sour!!!
From Wednesday to our flight home, my 9 and 11 year old sons and I were struck down with acute gastroentiritis. Without going into detail ....48 comfort breaks in 2 days with stabbing cramps made our holiday and flight home a disaster.
One thing I learned about Bulgarians is, they have a definate "not my fault guv" policy.
Nothing was anyone's fault as we politely tried to explain that something was wrong....."all our food is fresh every day" was the response....clearly it wasn't as leftovers may well have been stored incorrectly. Likewise, the Bulgarian speciality restaurant served me grilled chicken which was red inside and still bleeding. When I complained , they said , it's impossible to cook everyones meal at the same time, so that is how it had to come out"....there were 3 tables occupied in the restaurant at the time!!!!
To summarise, the hotel was stunning.
The beach was very well maintained on a daily basis.
The food was suspect although tasty and a great choice......
The service was not as I've come to expect in the Caribbean, but then this is Eastern Europe.
The people were very friendly.
Be warned....the Majestic is at the "posh end " of Sunny Beach...and hence you tend to pay posh prices compared to the rest of the resort.
One final thing....if you have kids, the "cool gadget" in Sunny Beach is a green laser pen. The "Gypsy market-paki shop" (The traders words not mind!!!) sell them for 25-30 LEV. Do yourself a favour, order one for each of your kids from e-bay at £5.99 before you go! My son had a faulty one, took it back and it was another case of "not my fault guv"!!!!
Overall....nice place, but will probably just tick it off and move onto my next country to explore.
