Stayed here for 2 weeks during August and had a great time. However a few pointers. People complain about the staff but remeber you have at least 4 different nations staying here. (UK guests are from South, NE & NW so accents are hard even for us!). However learn a few basic words (please and thank you especially) and see a remarkable change in the staff. Food is a bit "samey" but edible. (Snowgirl is Tzatziki - Greek cucumber and yoghurt etc) If you expect UK food then go to Spain. You had at least 6 salad choices, 3-4 meats, breads, pasta, rice, chips etc for every mealtime.Loads of fresh fruit and cakes. The restaurant manager does look a bit grumpy but as with the others learn a little Bulgarian and he will even organise a table for you! Towels on sunbeds are a pain and the Brits are the worse offenders, they leave them on the beds for their stay and stroll down about midday. The rooms are large and basic - but you are only sleeping in them! As with the other staff be nice to the maid and your room is spotless with beds and towels changed regularly. Treat them as your personel slave and see the result. Plumbing is typical of the region not just the Wela or Bulgaria. Bathrooms are wetrooms so yes the floor gets wet but adjust and chill. Drinks are in good supply and yes the plastic glasses for the pool / lobby bar are odd but live with it. Did find them a good idea around the pool as you never worried about broken glass. Pool is good but does get crowded. Again Brits and their inflatables are the worse thing. So in closing the best advice is: 1. Learn basic Bulgarian. 2. The food is edible (don't eat with your eyes!) 3. Be nice to the staff 4. We all went there because it was one of the cheapest AI deals around so don't complain when you dont get the Ritz.
Finally, go enjoy and make it what you want it to be.
