just returned a week ago from a week stay at rose village with my son , friend and her 2 daughters . we could fault the accomodation there , everything we did ask we got . 2 bedrooms , 2 bathrooms, low rise appartments and pool wiew side . but for our first visit there , i can only say i dont think i will ever return to bulgaria . we found the locals really ignorant and rude and for smiling well that was even worse ! 85 % were really hard work, only a small minority was ok . and trying to make yourself understand that was even harder ! not many bulgarians can hardly speak english ! the only bad thing about the complex , they need to invest on more sunloungers too ! not enough for the amount of people stoppping there so every morning it was a race to go downstairs to put your towels on to make sure you get one ! the beach was beautiful and warm . sunny beach's centre was worst than blackpool !! how many sex shop and pole dancing bars did we spotted ?? terrible when you 've got kids with you ! no i can truly say that was quite a experience !!

Room Tip: pool wiew side , as we could see our kids from the balcony if they was in the pool !

Just returned yesterday from a week's stay at Rose Village. I travelled with my brother, grandmother, dad and step mum and we had a room on the fifth floor in block C. It was very clean and we had two balconies with a pool view. Upon arrival we were shown to our room by a doorman who carried my Gran's suitcase for her.

The place itself is in an excellent location for a family holiday, it isn't too close to the main part of Sunny Beach (which is very crowded with a noisy night life) and is within five minutes walking distance to the beach (where you have to pay 8lv for a sun bed, but it is pretty much the same everywhere, also the sea is lovely and warm). There is also a bus stop at either side of the road about 5 minutes walk down the road to the right of Rose Village, where you can catch a bus for 1lv per person to either Nesebar or the north part of Sunny Beach (these buses do get very crowded though so watch out for pickpockets). There is also a little road train which runs to the same places (it's 3lv for an adult) which you can stop by putting your arm out.

There are plenty of supermarkets and restaurants in the area, and the apartments' adjoining restaurant ('Vicky') serves excellent food and the staff are lovely. They can speak English well but of course appreciate any attempt you make at speaking Bulgarian (you don't have to, it just makes them smile).

The swimming pool is very cold but you get used to it quickly and it is lovely after that. There is of course the problem of reserving sunbeds as other people have mentioned, but it isn't a huge problem as you can just move the unreserved ones into the sun if you so wish. I would highly recommend travelling at the end of August because the weather is still wonderful but everything is less crowded, especially the beach.

The maids came to our room every morning and our towels and beds were changed after four days as promised. They couldn't speak English but seemed very lovely and smiled a lot. We didn't have any problems with stealing as someone else mentioned they did, but it is probably advisable to have a lock on your suitcase and don't leave valuables lying around. Bulgaria is quite a poor country after all and the minimum wage is terribly low, so you don't know what their situation is and they may turn to stealing, just be careful. You can pay for a safe in reception as well if you want to.

One of my favourite things about Rose Village was that in the evening (at about 9pm) lots of little frogs hopped around the paths near the pool. They didn't go in the pool, so don't worry about that!

My family and I had a really wonderful holiday and I believe that Rose Village is one of the best aparthotels in the area.

Note: if you travel with Balkan Holidays, take the opportunity to go on the 'Blue Mountains' trip for a taste of real Bulgaria, it is wonderful. Take a packed lunch for any fussy eaters though as there is a set meal for lunch (not that it isn't nice). Also book an evening at Khan's Tent (this doesn't have to be with Balkan Holidays) as it is brilliant!

Room Tip: Block C / rooms with a pool view are best. Bring your own hair dryer (and a plug adapter).

Just returned from a two week stay,had an amazing time.We were in a two bedroom apartment with two bathrooms,one en-suite, this was a life safer with two daughters.
Apartments clean and maid service good,linen and towels changed every 4 days. Lovely and spacious apartment, reception staff were ever so helpful and friendly especially Diana. We had a few maintainance problems which were dealt with straight away.
During our stay we hired a car(from England) and Diana sorted out a free car parking pass for us, as well as advising us where to go etc.
We had some brilliant days out in the car,seeing the real; Bulgaria, travelling quite long distances.Sozopol was beautiful very similar to Old Nessebar but narrower streets, museums and some gorgeous little restaurants.
Kiten-a small fishing village was also absolutely gorgeous,we ate in a non English speaking restaurant, but had a terrific meal and for four of us with starters,drinks(incl Beers) and maincourses was about £25. There was a lovely beach here too.
Definately cheaper the further away from Sunny Beach.
We went on a couple of boat trips one through a nature reserve,7 Levs each for about an hour,we saw turtles which was nice. A photographer took a photo of all of us and only charged 5 Levs to buy it,all presented in a special wallet. Another day we found a small place with about 5 restaurents along an estuary, we had a huge boat to ourselves,with the captain for 30 Levs,he took us up the estuary again seeing turtles etc,he then turned around and took us to where the estuary meets the sea,really pretty. After the boat trip we ate in a restaurant, again no English speaking waitresses,but got what we ordered and it was hot and tasty.We drove down to the beach and there was only about 20 people on it,our daughters played in the sea and estuary,using their tube floating in the estuary like a lazy river.
Sunny Beach was far too touristy for us,but nice around where we stayed,we did walk into the resort most evenings,but not too far as further in,more expensive. Mostly we paid 1 Lev a pint of Beer, which my husband said was very nice similar to a Stella in taste. Had a great meal in the Mexican near our apartment,lovely food, although our waiter was a bit keen to clear the table, as soon as you put your cutlery down he whipped the plates away quickly. We ate in Nessebar several times,The old Anchor was nice, the staff were lovely and treated us really well.
Ate one lunch time in Sunny Beach at the Castle, the man outside said 2 Levs a pint of beer,we were charged 4 levs and had 10% added to our bill,which was not mentioned on the menu,the food was nothing special and expensive too, I had a rissotto there and was poorly several hours later and for the next couple of days.
Went on the Traditional Bulgarian evening through Balkan Holidays, worked out about £125 and wasn't really worth the money, free wine etc but undrinkable,the food wasn't that great and the entertainment went on a bit,although the man walking on the hot coals was good,wouldn't really reccommend this trip.
Really loved Bulgaria, we found the restaurants etc to be nice and clean and felt that the Bulgarian people took a lot of pride in their businesses etc.Will definately go back but not to Sunny Beach,would like to travel up north further nearer Varna.

Room Tip: We were in A block and were over looking the road,to be honest we couldn't hear the traffic at a...

Loved this hotel, had a two bed apartment for husband , son aged 17 and myself. Very spacious, front room with tv (able to get all the sport inc premier football) amble kitchen area with fridge, microwave, hob. Beds are very big and comfortable with aircon in both rooms. The rooms are very well cleaned every day, towels changed every fourth day. Got a safety deposit box for 5lev a day worth having for piece of mind. Receptionist friendly and do their job well. But if you're looking for a hotel where you stay by the pool all day, this may not be for you, towels are left out for entire two weeks so that sun beds can be guaranteed, alarms are being set for five,six in the morning by others and some are putting towels out when they return from drinking at night!! Not an issue for us as we are beach lovers and there is a beautiful sandy beach just across the road and a short walk away. There is a main road to cross, but just down from the hotel is a pedestrian crossing which counts down to the red light and the green man telling you it's safe to cross. The water is clear and the beach is clean, although you pay, never a problem getting a sunbed, perhaps the hotel should consider charging too? We took photos one day at 7am, 10am and 1pm and still the owners of the towels hadn't shown up, there aren't enough sunbeds if everyone in the hotel wanted to stay.

Stayed in rose village last week of july first week of august, we were a family of 2 adults 2 children aged 13 & 14 our room was better than what i expected 2 nice sized bedrooms a living area with sofa bed and 2 reasonably sized balconys we were in block c and had a pool view, the room was cleaned every day and had clean towels every other day. Rose village was a little bit further than the centre of sunny beach than what i thought it took us about 35 minutes to walk was about the same to walk to nessebar. The bus stop was 5 minute walk and you could catch a bus right to the end of sunny beach for 1 lev while i was there it was 2.20 leves to the pound. The main road is a bit frightening at first but a couple of days and you got used to it.The food in the hotel was good no complaints there. The memory restraunt next door was also good. We ate in many nice places and did not have a bad meal. My only niggle were the sunbeds not enough. I dont belive in saving beds so we spent our time sitting on the grass. Breakfast was ok but no toast machine. Staff were really friendly. All in all really enjoyed our hols.

We returned from Bulgaria on 11th August. We had two weeks at Rose Village and because we rely on these reviews we thought we would reply and give an honest opinion of our findings.
We are a family of 4. 2 adults, a 16 year old boy and 12 year old girl. We arrived at Rose Village at 2 in the morning and were promptly shown to our room. It was 2 bedrooms with lounge and kitchenette. The bedrooms were very large and the beds were really comfy. My first impression was that it was a bit basic but when I woke with fresh eyes the next day it was more than adequate. We didn't have an ensuite but did have two balconies. One overlooking the small pool. We were in Block C.
Right, let's get the negatives out of the way first. It was a fight every morning to get a sunbed. If you didn't get down there by 8, you had no chance. The cleaners finished their cleaning then and if your towel was out earlier it would be folded up and removed. There were a few times where towels were placed on sunbeds and we didn't see the families all day!!!!! There are not enough sunbeds for the amount of people to accommodate round the big pool. The smaller pool was quieter and again the sunbeds were always taken. There were quite a few russians, that the management seemed to prefer to the English. For example, one night the Russians decided to have a bit of a gathering in the bar, they were dancing on the tables, playing their own music that they had rigged up to the speakers and were very, very loud. Nothing was done or said. however, a few nights later a few families came back after being out for dinner (separately) and were all sitting chatting. We started laughing and got told off. After that they shut the bar at 11pm and we were told, very rudely, to hurry up and drink up because they actually started removing the table and chairs from around us!. (It wasn't the staff, they were as gutted as we were that they had to close early, it was Nadia who seemed to think she was God! She was the main person that they took orders from and whom they obeyed!!!!) She never smiled, except when speaking to the Russians. Not a problem, as we just went to the hotel next door, where Martin stayed opened as long as you was there. (Sometimes til 3 in the morning!). The safety deposit boxes are in the lobby and you had to get the receptionist to open it every time you wanted to get anything out (again not a problem, just a pain!) It was 7 levs a night, which worked out to over £40 for the two weeks. But we were told that it was essential that you have one. Our walk to Nessebar took us over 40 minutes (whether we were going the wrong route I don't know but we walked along the coastal path), and the walk to Sunny Beach was approx. an hour. However, again this wasn't a problem and we often caught the bus that ran every 15 mins until midnight, both ways, and cost 1 lev (40p) each. Once we got to either of these, our main hangup was being harrassed every few steps by people asking if we wanted to eat, sometimes we just wanted to stop for a drink and move on, but it aggravated us that we were being pounced on as soon as we stopped walking. Everywhere you go, even in the restaurants, you have to pay to have a pee. This varies from 50 stinkies (pennies) to 1 lev. So make sure you take plenty of change with you.

Now for the good points. Rose Village is extremely clean and well kept. Our towels were changed every two days and our beds about every 4th. The shower rooms are wet rooms and it panicked me on the first time we had a shower, because it was waterlogged. However, we got used to it and again wasn't a problem, you just had to be careful in case you slipped. There is no hairdryer provided either!!!!! The food in the little bar around the pool was excellent and extremely good value as was the beer from the pump. It worked out to about £1.30 a pint!!!. Where to eat:- We never had a bad meal as a family, there is a fantastic Mexican just across the road, where they give you 2 welcome shots when you turn up and had live singing. If you come out of Rose Village and turn right, there is a little restaurant we called "The Shack" on the corner and again our food was lovely. As was Memories that was right next door. In Nessebar we ate at "The Sea Wolf" and in Sunny Beach our favourite restaurant was Djanny's. You had to be there before 7 otherwise you had to queue, but again the food was amazing. We also went to the Chinese along the main strip and our favourite for breakfast was Jack's just as you enter the strip on the right, they charge 15 levs (about £12) for 2 (huge) English breakfasts with tea and toast. It was very reasonably priced with our most expensive meal being £50 for 3 adults and a child with 2 rounds of drinks!!! We went to Bombay Grill one night and whilst the food was lovely, I unfortunately chose the Biryani, which come with the meat in the rice and a vegetable curry. I got my rice (which could have fed 3 of us) but the vegetable curry came up in a small gravy boat with 1 piece of sweetcorn! I wouldn't knock this though, as I simply chose wrongly. All the other meals were fab. There are zillions of shops that sell all the named gear, Adidas, Holister, Flossy etc. Loads of sunglasses, handbags and shoe shops too. Ideal for a shopaholic teenage like mine!!!. If you only have one trip, it has to be Khan's Tent. You get a 4 course meal, with a bottle of white wine for each adult that can be exchanged for 2 pints of beer or a bottle of rose. The setting is amazing and the entertainment is something else. I would highly recommend this. If you need to go shopping, ie bread and milk etc. there is a Penny Market at the top of the road that is the cheapest around. It isn't a very big supermarket but has all the essentials that you need. It is about a 10-15min walk. We bought a litre bottle of vodka and it cost us about £4!!! We took mostly English money with us as you get a better rate of exchange over there (we were getting approx 2.20 to the £). We were advised to only change our money at Crown Currency, where there are lots of shops all over. We heard that a gentleman changed his money at a different currency exchange and got given a load of dud notes back. He didnt realise this until he actually went to spend them!!!!

On the return home, you are allowed 10 litres of drink and 3200 cigarettes, however, you do have to prove that it is for personal use. How you do this I don't know. The normal requirement is 800 cigarettes each.

I would definitely return back to Sunny Beach. The beach is clean, the sea is warm and the Bulgarians are friendly. Hope this helps. x

Room Tip: Don't forget to pack your hairdryer!!!!!

just back from rose village. I have to say I am really disappointed in this hotel the standards have dropped.the first day their my wife had 130.00 lev taken from her purse by the maids also her mobile phone had also been pinched. I went down to reception to report this and the bulgarian lady said this was not possible ? . I told her that it was possible and that shehad a theif on her staff.. she kept on saying check the room again and even accused my kids of taking the money. Also spoke to the manager and all she said was that she was sorry.. have stayed at rose village twice now and on returning this year i found the staff to be very rude and abrupt. They could not give a damm about the people they have staying with them. Me and my family and freinds will not be returning to this hotel.
