My partner and I decided to have a relaxing break at the Sol Nessebar Palace on the Black Sea coast of Bulgaria. It is on a quiet, stylish beach resort and is comfortable and peaceful. We flew to Bourgos Airport and reached the hotel after 20 minutes in our hired car. We opted for a sea-view room with a balcony. It had warm, soothing colours and elegant mahogany furnishings. Our room had a safe and a refrigerator and the bathroom was plush. The food was excellent, we had a complimentary breakfast and a buffet dinner in the evenings. We could choose from grilled chicken, pork, other meats and delicious grilled fish all cooked in front of us. The facilities in the hotel were good, they include a main restaurant, a pool bar, shops, beauty care, a lobby bar and an entertainment bar as well as a full service spa. Guests must visit nearby Nessebar with its many clothes markets. It was here that we visited a local restaurant to savour traditional Bulgarian food which seems to be a mixture of east meets west. They are fond of joghurt as it reportedly keeps you living longer if you eat it regularly. Other guests told us never to take a taxi there as the drivers have a habit of ripping unwary tourists off but a bus runs regularly anyway for those who haven't hired a car. The weather was mostly sunny and overall we had a wonderful time. We found the hotel staff quite stressed and fairly aloof however but maybe this is because Bulgaria is just coming to terms with the influx of foreign visitors over the past few years. We would recommend the hotel and hope to go back one day.
