We stayed here on the off chance of not knowing anything about Bulgaria, just the reccomendation of a travel agent.
When we read about all the bad illnesses on trip advisor we were very very concerned, however there was nothin what so ever when we went.
We loved this hotel so much that when we got back, we booked again for June 2013.
At the bar-If you get Vlado serve you then you can be sure to have an awesome service and he always puts a smile on your face.
Around the pool-George is a great man and provides all the entertainment around the pool as well as at the bar salón.
Only one downer is that the pool is absolutely freezing however when your in (IF you get in) and you do a few lengths then you'll be fine.
The rooms are very big and spacious, the food has the biggest selection i've ever seen and was delicious!!
Khans tent is definitely a 'MUST DO' attraction but DO NOT buy tickets for it in the UK as its double the price so purchase them through your rep at the hotel.
The currency rate is VERY GOOD in the hotel and is better than the uk travel agents on average, we felt thomsons ripped us off by giving us a purely shocking rate and were 'assured' we wont get a better rate in Bulgaria but was nearly DOUBLE!!!!
Shame on you thomsons!!
If you require any further information do not hesitate to contact me :-)
