“Excellent”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

Big rooms, great bathroom, spotless. The Spa center is great, especially the thermal pool and the saunas and of course the outdoor pool with hot water. The fitness center is also great, clean and with good equipment. The only thing that was not up to the 5 star standard was the food i.e the so called Mediterranean restaurant, not much too choose from...Maybe the other restaurant, i think they call it Balkan restaurant was better, although with loud folk music, but it was crowded all the time and impossible to make a reservation.

Room Tip: Rooms by the river, they're more private and quiet, and you can enjoy a drink on your balcony ju...

We've been there several times and every time we love it more and more! The best hotel in Bulgaria! The rooms are big and clean, the food is delicious, the staff is polite and the SPA center is a real SPA center!

We spent 3 days in Park Hotel Pirin at Conference. Everything was perfectly organized. The buffet at the Mediterranean restaurant was delicious. Best hotel in Sandanski region! I would like to go there as a spa visitor :)

We stayed for 3 days, and first impressions were very good,the pool area was a good size and very clean, and the accomodation was also a good size and very clean, however the facilities in the kitchen area were sparce,with no kettle or cups.
The hotel appears to have 3 restaurnts, but only one appeared to be open on each night, and after trying 2 of them we gave up as the service was very poor, and the food not much better.
The indoor pool area looked very good but it was too warm outside to be indoors, it also had good gym facilities, not that i used them.
Overall I felt that with a little more attention to detail, this could be a very good hotel

While being in a 5-star hotel one should expect that everything is perfect. Of course, it is not always achievable. Pirin Park Hotel has many advantages and some disadvantages that could not make me feel that everything is perfect.
A day inside starts with a rich and tasty breakfast - something not typical for Bulgarian hotels. There is a plenty of everything and the quality of food is high. After the breakfast you may visit the indoor pool or maybe the cafe. Most probaby you will find the pool crowded. And most probably there will be 2 or 3 fat old men laying in the kids' pool. No hotel can avoid idiots among its guests, but the idiots must be controlled in some way. The cafe can make you nervous too. You will seldom find slower waitresses.
If you want to use the advertised shuttle bus to the town centre, you will find that it runs only 1 or 2 times daily. Yet another useless service, because the hotel is far from town centre. It is possible to reach by foot, but not very convenient.
Having lunch or dinner in the main "Balkan" restaurant is not the tastiest possible. Also you may find that the larger part of it is booked for a private party. Closing the children's playroom for a private party is also possible. Besides that it is not open every day. And yet another unreliable service.
Now the good things: the rooms are comfortable and clean, the outdoor area is very very pleasant, the children's playroom is perfect.
I will conclude that Pirin Park Hotel is good for a short visit, but I would not recommend it for a long stay.

Room Tip: Not every room has a balcony.

The hotel is located about 2 kilometres from the centre of town so is quiet with no restaurants around. The walk to town is pleasant as it goes through a park which is being redeveloped but there are no decent restaurants in the town. The bedrooms are large with a good sized balcony and are adequately furnished. The room was not properly cleaned or made up during our stay and only the towels were replaced. The shower was blocked so the water flowed into the bathroom but was repaired after we complained. We ate one night in the Balkan restaurant but would not go back as the food was expensive and very average in quality. There is a good wine selection and the glass of house wine we had was excellent. There is a very good selection on the breakfast buffet but the selection of hot food was only warm as it was not kept hot. We ate two times in the Happy restaurant just outside of the town as it was better than the hotel food. The swimming pool is big by hotel standards and the saunas and steam rooms are well maintained and the spa area is very clean. The receptionist and serving staff did not seem to be happy as they never smiled. I will not return to this hotel as the price exceeds the quality.

Room Tip: Try to stay in the main block to be close to the spa and restaurants.

Nicely warm inside pool area and in the water, kids pool and large pool great, Jacuzzi clean and nice too. Best part of the hotel. There is also a hot pool outside for winter treatment and a regular pool for warmer times.

Spa area nothing special but good enough with nice relax zone. You can't take ice from the ice room ;) because it is one big chunk of ice actually.

A very nice garden is located inside hotel grounds so you can walk around with the bath robes.

Rooms are big, clean and warm , WiFi sometimes slow or dropping though.

Breakfast OK but dinner could have been better especially the service and the spacing, it was too crowded in the Balkan restaurant.

Room Tip: A room facing the inside garden is best - quiet with a nice view
