“stay well away”
Reviewed 24 September 2008

i stayed in the kalina garden in june, alot of problems.1st, when we got to our room. the air con was broke for the week we were there.2nd at reception they were very unhelpful and knew very little english,3rd .the pool would hold about 200 people or more but only enough sun beds for about 40 people plus the pool only got the sun for half the day, you would have to be up very early to get a sunbed as they were always taken, 4th . the (hot) food was very poor, a big selection of fruit and cold meats. the only good thing i could say was the cleaners were brillant,our room was spotless every day and they made little designs or figures out of the towels for my two kids,if you are german or denish this place would suit you down to the ground, stay away if you are irish or english

we were there the last two weeks in August. Me (16) mam, dad , brother (9) and sister(8). Hotel spotless, spacious, Staff second to none(brilliant) Food-different to what we have at home-

breakfasts more continental than Irish-hot dogs instead of sausage not a decent sausage in the country!!! or TEA!!! plenty of cereal, salads, local bread, and scrummy cake and just regular eggs plenty of fruit!!

dinner-any amount of salad lots of pork, veal, chips and rice not very much veg!! This is normal throughout bulgaria though!.

bulgarian people- very nice! Water Park compact but brilliant. Jeep Safari-EXCELLENT well worth it!!. Beaches nice but over crowded, st vlas(beach) 5 mins up the road quite idyllic. AVOID the kuban hotel water park !!!! it is not clean at all- risk of nasty ear infections, my brother and two freinds he met all got it after a day at the park.

Bulgaria not quite Spain but well worth the visit, quite a refreshing change. And the weather was AMAZING for the two weeks!!

duty free- practically giving the stuff away for free 1 liter of smirnoff vodka 14e! and 1 liter of jameson 14e. NO LIMITS excellent for presents

Bulgaria summed up deadly in my own humble opinion..THE MEN well dont get me started-oooooowww yes!!

Just returned from our 2 week holiday at Kalina Garden. The hotel was lovely and immaculate. The rooms were very spacious and towels etc were changed daily. We booked for bed and breakfast however only went for breakfast 1 day and were very disappointed in the food.

The hotel overall is in an excellent position within the middle of Sunny Beach however the main occupants are German. For a more British hotel i would reccomend the Karona.

Reviewed 27 June 2007

Just came back from Sunny Beach yesterday. A day late due to a delay at the airport and because of the terrible customer service from our rep and airline (XL) it almost ruined our holiday.
We stayed in Hotel Kalina Gardens which was located 5 mins from the beach, shops and nightlife but away from the noise. It was clean, comfortable and had a huge pool and plenty of facilities. However the staff were unfriendly and rude and we went a whole day without electricity in our room. It wasn't until we complained again that they sent someone to look at the problem. A word of advice be wary of the plugs as our electricity kept going and we couldn't charge phones or cameras.
The biggest gripe I have about Bulgaria in general is the food. It wasn't at all to my liking. Not a vegetable apart from tomatoes in sight. The three of us thought we were being careful about what we ate but ended up being sick for 3 days. So although the food is cheap there is a reason for it! On our last day we discovered a restaurant called Djannays which was nice. Also all of the local beers and wines were delicious and didn't give you a hangover.
The shopping was also very good. Cheap markets and jewellery shops. All in all I would only go back again if I heard that the food had hugely improved.

Booked allocation on arrival with Balkan and were very relieved upon arriving at Kalina Gardens. Room was very spacious with good air conditioning. Large bathroom with bath and shower, hairdryer.
Booked bed and breakfast but were upgraded to half board, breakfasts were excellent as we have always found in Bulgarian hotels. Evening meals in hotels in Bulgaria seem to have a bad reputation and we usually eat out as so many good restaurants and such good value. Did try the evening meals a couple of times and were pleasently surprised. Buffet style with lots of choice - soups, salads, meat and fish dishes and lovely vegetarian options - stuffed peppers, aubergines, courgettes etc.
Nice pool area. Only downside to hotel was lack of sunbeds due to people placing towels and then not using. Indoor pool very quiet.
Staff were very helpful and friendly. A bit surprised that the hotel bar closed early from our other experiences of hotels in Sunny Beach - around midnight. Other hotels we have stayed in have stayed open until the last person leaves, but at least this shows they have some consideration for their staff and there are lots of bars nearby if you want a late drink. The hotel had a mix of nationalities which for us is part of the experience of holidaying abroad.
