“The hotel looks nice, like in the pictures, but the rooms are very poorly cleaned.”
Reviewed September 2, 2010

It's an ok hotel for 3*. What's nice about it (compared to other 3* hotels in the area) is the garden, the outside pool (although it's open only from 10am to 6pm), and the food. But, was really disappointed with the cleanliness of the rooms. Even if little time is spent in the room, when on vacation, it is still nice to sleep on spotless bed sheets, to breathe fresh air, not with dust, and to walk on a vacuumed cleaned carpet. The hotel administration has to work on the cleaning part.

The hotel's been refurbished fairly recently and looks good insid eand out. The pool is clean and attractive with a good variation in depth fpr the kids. We had a family room which was a good size which had a separate room for the children. The desk staff were very nice although some of the staff in the restaurant were a bit abrupt. The buffet breakfast was good. We only ate once in the evening in the hotel - there's better places nearby.

We got the bus into Varna a couple of times - ask they hotel satff how to get to the bus stop but it's very simple with frequent buses.

In the village, don't eat at the restaurant next to the bungy thing - despite being popular it's poor quality and they added an extra 20% to my bill. The best place we ate was the place to the right of the italian pizza reataurant - sorry can't remember the name but there's a strip of grass in front on it. It's Bulgarian style food.

Stayed here for 3 nights. Room pretty good and spacious. Breakfast plentiful. Hotel seems to be popular with tour groups (Brits, Germans, Romanians). Staff professional without being in the 'Hail Fellow, Well Met' category. One annoying point is that you have to pay for all extras e.g. sunbeds, fitness centre, internet, etc. We paid 42 Levs/night booking directly with the hotel. All in all good value.

A word on the resort: It's quiet (sleepy might be a better word) which was OK for us as we had come directly overland from Transylanvia and needed a rest, however, probably wouldn't want to spend more than 3 days here. Nothing particularly wrong with the place but it's not particularly exicting. I guess that you could use the resort as a base for exporing other areas. Resort itself seems to be geared towards young families. The best that I can say for the food is that it's no worse than anyone else in the Balkans! You don't come to the region for the cuisine!

I just wanted to write a review about this warm and positive place. I spent the weekend there with some friends and it was great. The swimming pool area just in front of the balconies(the other side of the hotel looks to a forest), the wonderfully trimmed and cared for green spaces , the warmth of the personnel, everything made me feel like in a vacation. The whole resort has a distinct air of decency and coolness, people are polite and they care a lot about the environment and their guests

I was pleasantly surprised by this hotel. Having read the reviews (good and bad) before booking I was prepared for potential disappointment. However, the staff were friendly, the hotel clean, the food good, the service quick and the pool was great. For high season it was interesting that the hotel was not full, but that meant plenty of room round the pool. Only down side was the room was so-so (we had a family apartment) but apart from that it was very good value and I would definitely recommend Hotel Koral to anyone for a short stay.

We have just returned from a two week stay at this hotel and resort what can I say apart from fantastic experience from beginning to end.All staff and barstaff Chris, Mimi ,to all waiters Evo,, Hristo and Vasko off course Danni, Petar and Ivan at the very clean well maintained swimming pool. They were always cleaning this hotel from top to bottom and were always happy to help. Michael the hotel taxi driver was second to none with a complete knowledge of the area and was always willing to help and go overboard to make your stay a remembarable one. We spent a day looking round rest of hotels based in St Konstantine and found none to be a patch on this regardless of star rating. Have booked again for next year 2 days after arriving home.

The Koral hotel is lovely. Very clean and well kept and you would expect it to be 4 star rather than 3. However the food really lets it down. We knew when we booked that the food was bland and not served piping hot in Bulgaria, but we didnt realise it would be served cold and barely cooked (ok if you like pink meat). Breakfast was really bad for choice but the main meal was always at least two choices however, we tended to stick to the rice and pototo and then fill up on puddings. The room was cleaned and beds made every day and the roomhad everything you needed. The end of September is clearrly the end of the season, and there was no entertainment on in the hotel, The whole resort was really quiet with nothing much to do, so it did get quite boring. Especially as we were so unlucky to get heavey rain all day everyday and thunder and lightning a few times too. We had a few hours of sun one day which ment we could go paddeling in the sea. Noone at all used any swimming pools whilst we were there but they all looked clean other than floating leaves. The staff dont really speak english so you cant chat to them very easily other than Krasi behind the bar. He was fantastic, really friendly and helpful so between him and the crazy scoucer (Michael I think) from down the road they made our holiday. Thanks both!!
