This was an charter trip with my wife and our 3 yrs old son, and heard this hotel was just perfect for families travelling with either with small kids or teenagers, we spend 1 week here 21 oct, 2012, we booked a rental car from home, and had a picked up from the south Sofia airport right after arrival, the hotel is located around 29 km away from airport, but really easy access to the hotel if u have a GPS :o)
the hotel offered free parking, which is really good considering most hotel would have demanded a fee, however bear in mind the hotel has around 20 parking spaces, and is only for hotel guests, however people coming for dining around the area will park there since the street is pretty packed with cars, observed in several occasions, people didnt really care, and also the ones heading towards the beach wld use the space too !! anyhow we checked in the hotel and this is an 2** hotel but in many ads u might have seen its sold as an 4**** star hotel, the hotel does offer all inklusive packages, and many other things thats why its able to be advertised and an 4**** it has restaurant, pool, kids pool, play room in basement, snack bar ect. free wi-fi, however the last bit didnt quite work as it shld, most of the time it was just a question of being patient ( which i dont have ) even sometimes in the lobby area it didnt work either, most be the major traffic or hotel didnt buy enough IP addresses, but when it worked i guess it was good, but thats it.
we got room #104 facing the street and moutains, dunno if we had the kitchen underneath us, but once we open the balcony door, OMG u could the staff talking loudly everyday, ( was out most of the day ) but once u come home and want to sit outside, noises from the staff and across the street the very few bars, but it wasnt the bar guests that bothered us, so if u can avoid that room number. The room had a kitchen, living room with dinning table, bedroom with closest, and bathroom, big enough for even 4 people travelling for sure.
they dont clean the rooms everyday nor change ur towels, its every 2 day, but i ask for fresh towals at front desk and they gladly handed over them over, the staff was really friendly, polite and very helpful.
the hotel is located at the end of the road, so not so much traffic there, and a beach located just down the road, and mostly small rocks and stones, but surely a place to take a dive, not crowded at all, but must warn that this particular beach isnt for small kids, well at least if the accompanied with an adult coz the waves is pretty big, experience a elderly couple just smash into the waves by just standing on the shore, and because they were totally unware the tides too, held my son at all times, otherwise its quite an sight to see these waves just pounding the rocks its quite amazing .....there is an restaurant le delphin right next door, u gotta try that and sit outside and watch the sunset OMG it was just amazing, and ur right on top of some cliffs and a pool, looks great, the food was really good, and cheap and good meals, we tried it there 2.
but in general some good dining places around the neighborhood, and a nice area as well compared to las Americas, party town, located 20 min drive from there, but thats were the shops are, we went during the day quite nice to see something else, worth the visit.
El Tiede the volcano crater it is an must, however the road getting there isnt for weak souls, if ur ever been in San Francisco driving those streets this is far more worse its either uphill in very narrow streets, and same down, u gotta have some driving experience :o) but its only for a few km, but its all worth the trip, we came down in one piece and the car too :o)
visit the Santa Cruz de Tenerife the capital around 1 hr drive from Callao Salvaje, and Puerto la cruz nice harbour city located east of the crater.
overall nice, cozy hotel, not many young people living there,m mostly seniors when we were there, i would recommend the place for sure.
