We had a lovely time at this 5* resort. The hotel was spotless, restaurant was great. I had a lovely massage in the spa, and there is a fully equipped Gym although I neglected to use it!. The staff are very accommodating and nothing is too much trouble, they helped to arrange activities with shuttles arranged. We went to the famous Rila Monastery and horse riding, but it was lovely to relax by the pool too, it is a very tranquil place. The scenery is amazing as the resort is in the mountains. It was 28 degrees but we could still see the snow capped mountains in the distance. Im planning a trip back there soon, will probably go for the ski season next. Just love the place, and would highly recommend whether you want activities or a relax!
