I am a regular visitor to Bulgaria as my partner is Bulgarian and I love the country. When it was time for my parents first visit to Bulgaria we spent a great deal of time researching hotels which would suit their specific needs and settled on 'The Flamingo Grand' having been less than enthused by some of our previous hotel stays. This was the right choice. Of course it was equipped with all the amenities you would expect from a modern hotel but it went a great deal further.
As a surprise for my parents we wanted to get access to their room early so that we could leave a few gifts and family in jokes and the hotel were happy to oblige in beautiful and polite English then when my parents arrived at the hotel they were great smoothly and swiftly as I would have expected. We were all lead to our rooms which were immaculate spacious suits with a beautiful view down to the beach and flowing gauzy curtains through out adding a Mediterranean stylish elegance to the black sea ...... mmmmm relaxing.
At the end of the day the thing that really stood out for all of us though apart from the excellent polite and helpful service was the food. Breakfast was a bountiful supply of all Bulgaria has to offer along with all the essentials to make an English man at home. Not to mention the gorgeous dripping fresh honey comb which went marvelously on my fresh hand made pancakes. Dinner was a different hand carved roast every night along with well flavoured food from all around the world and finally there was the night with the hand made Crepe Suzette....... WOW my life was complete or was when a roaming Mariachi band stopped by to serenade my international family.
The Flamingo Grand represents a fantastic hotel with excellent service, rooms and food. It is close to the beach and close to vibrant and historic Varna not to mention the historic wealth of eastern Bulgaria. I would happily recommend this to anyone weather you want to absorb some history and culture or relax in the sun. I loved it.
