The location of the hotel is awesome, but the service was bad and the food was tasteless. I am sure that you can find better hotels around. Spent 7 nights in this hotel and it get 4/10 score. Also you can find gym at the hotel, if you want to kerp on shape.

We`ve been to Bulgaria for the fierst time with my wife and son. I booked the hotel in advance (in april) with a parking place. When i came to Planeta hotel it appeared that there is no free parking for my car so I had to left it in the building of not-yet-built hotel near Planeta...for 10 levs per day. The food in the hotel is not varied. The beach is situated in 5-7 minutes from the hotel.

We were lucky having one of the biggest corner room at 1-st floor! Only the balcony is about 30 sq.m, in double room could sleep 9 people and we take it for 3. 2 TV sets, nice bathroom, clean + air conditionning... nice!

Well, I've just came back from this hotel and basically the hotel is kinda good because it is located in the center of Sunny Beach, it takes 5 minutes to walk to the beach. We had a large "Family room" with 2 separate rooms, 2 bathrooms, no any dirt was found actually ) Cleaning was also doing properly (especially when you leave some tips for cleaners ..lol). I slept very good there, the beds were really cosy. We had "All Inclusive" and the food was hm..so so, chicken for lunch, chicken for dinner and chicken everyday. No fish at all. I'd not recommend to take "All Inclusive" because it is much better to have your food in the bars\restaurants nearby the hotel.

Swimming pools are really small and not deep, I think when it is a high season these pools are crowded by too many people.

Hotel staff is indefferent, they don't care about you at all, they do not smile and they're not so friendly...but I don't care about them as well..lol..So I'd recommend this hotel for the young people that love partying because many bars, karaoke, clubs, erotic shows etc located close to this hotel.

we were in this hotel in September 2012 for 5 nights. and we can say just "don't go to this hotel". in the first day they give us studio room, that it's door didn't close, the same thing about the bath door, and In addition to that when we try to take a shower there wasn't hot water!!! the reception employees don't know hot service they don'y know even how to smile, every request had to take long time to get.
now about the restaurant, we reserved half board, but we couldn't eat the breakfast or the dinner, the every day they offer the same buffet and in law quality, but extremely low quality of food.
the positive things i can tell you about this hotel:
1- the staff of the bar are kind, professional and know how to give you a good service.
2- the location of the hotel is in the heart of sunny beach.
3- the spa is excellent and professional.

GOOGLE TRANSLATION:

The Hotel was built in tower (10 floors) located in the area of ​​very high density building and feel the need to leave profound renewal, large rooms and good soundproofing (it should be noted that the level of 3. Floor where I was staying with my daughter 6 years and a half, you can not rest after the 7 am because of the noise of moving chairs and carts carrying utensils service in the hotel restaurant located on the floor below).

The hotel service is generally acceptable, and if the rooms are maintained, hygienic and proper maintenance as service buffet restaurant is very weak, with constant shortages of material and even food, a very weak and repetitive availability and variety of foods that are excessively repeated.

Moreover, the all-inclusive, which works mainly at the pool bar (in which constantly generate queues invariably subject to "overtake" to whom the same is by integrating other guests local and particularly from countries east while other services in the hotel bar staff to allow a very long journey of relaxation without having to meet clients ....) is - if restricted to meals from a buffet, as well as some snacks of pizza at the pool bar and drink for national Furthermore ...

The hotel's pool, put your turn gets stuck between the towers complex, without exterior views, it seems - in small for the number of people who may want to enjoy, and the water temperature is somewhat cool for people who appreciate warm waters.

A very pleasant aspect is that the hotel offers free internet access, but such access is restricted to the lobby.

The beach is located - is about 5m walk, is not the way to get there the most attractive, as it circulates among an extensive set of buildings (some with suspended construction right next to the hotel), being essentially ceded the areal to individuals who do not prevent users from their chairs and umbrellas extend a towel on the sand, quickly calling the police they provide full "cooperation") to ward off unwanted attempting to resist the orders of their leaves the place, while for the effect remains only a small territory near the vendors aquatic amusements; since the water temperature in July / August is passable, although it has gone away with a cold.

The location where the hotel is located on the beach of Sunny Beach, features - by a huge and chaotic set of buildings of low architectural quality level (.. if you have any), with an endless amount of shops of all kinds of trinkets (made in China and / or Turkey), and very oriented nightlife (bars open air, streep bars, clubs), all in a bustle and noise notable supposedly appreciated by teenagers from various European countries.


Finally, the local border control agents revealed - is an absolutely cool and uncritical rigidity, not allowing the plane to take two packages of baby milk for my daughter six years (a Bulgarian airline served on each flight a sandwich inedible ... .), even a small bottle of water for the child to take a pill for motion sickness, maintaining this attitude even after the girl have in the very presence of these individuals have drunk some of the water along with the pill for seasickness.


I will never return to that place.

Room Tip: get away from 3 or 4 floor (restaurant is locatede at 2 floor), and choose a sight to the pool
