DO NOT BE TAKEN IN BY THE MOANERS - THIS PLACE IS EXCELLENT!!!!!!
All I ever see on this site is negative reviews for everywhere, why? Because normally the only people who write reviews are moaners and whiners who enjoy spreading their misery! Well I thought I'd try and change that by leaving a positive review! :-)
The Wela is a great hotel. It's an all inclusive hotel and I must say the food is very good. It's not 5* Restaurant quality, but what do you expect from a 3* hotel on the Eastern side of Europe?! It's all very well presented and there is enough choice to keep you interested all week. Anyone who thinks otherwise needs to get a grip!
The staff are lovely if you make the effort to interact with them. Too many Brits have this idea that they are all there to bow down to their every whim. Our group made the effort and decided to have a night of drinking and mixing with the staff at the hotel rather than going out down the strip. We had one of our best nights, moving from the free bar (finishes at midnight) into the pay bar, and drinking and socialising until around 4-5am. We ended up having pictures taken and a really good night. For the rest of our holiday all of the staff that were dotted about the hotel that night would come up daily to ask how we were and what we were going to do with our days. We'd made the effort, now they were returning the favour!
Sunny Beach is a lovely resort, and is so very cheap! The beach stretches for miles and the scenery is beautiful! We were there for partying though.......
Sunny Beach has great nightlife. It's not Ibiza so dont expect that, I would put it more like the hedonistic Greek Island resorts like Faliraki and Malia etc. There is a great vibe in Sunny Beach, very friendly. Sadly for me it seems as if 18-30 have discovered Sunny Beach this year so I'm keeping everything crossed they dont do their normal thing of destroying a perfectly good party scene!!!
There is plenty to do if your not there for the drink too, dont be put off because my review is based around partying, it's just what I like to do. I reckon Couples and families of all ages would enjoy Sunny Beach too, and apart from the main strip would get everything they wanted out of a holiday!
All in all I have now been to Sunny Beach 3 times, the Wela Hotel twice, and am heading back to Sunny Beach in September, this time and for the first time, staying at the Laguna Park (Review to follow! ;-) ). If you want luxury then stop being to stingy and book yourself off to the Caribbean! If you want a fun filled, friendly, clean, enjoyable holiday then look no further than Sunny Beach and the fantastic Wela Hotel!
