Bulgaria - STEPS STEPS AND MORE STEPS !!! This country doesnt know the meaning of flat, i ended up longing for the M25! The Hotel is lovely on 1st inspection. There were 4 in our party and the kids loved the bunk beds. There are only 2 lifts and they are quite slow. The restuarant food gets very boring very quickly, the best things are the chocolate croissants and the pancakes. The pools are absolutely FREEZING. The beds were made every day but we had to ask for he towels to be changed. We went for 2 wks in August and found it too long. The aquapark is good (more steps though) but beware i dont think the water is chlorinated and i know at least 5 kids who went down with stomach bugs, including my daughter. Varna airport is a nightmare, we had to wait nearly an hour for our baggage. There are lots of good fake designer clothes to be had, i bought a tommy hilfiger jacket for 35 lev which is about £14. If there is one thing you have to try it is the Jeep Safari, i had a ball. Be prepared to get wet though, you will have massive water fights with the other jeeps which is instigated by the drivers. The other thing to be careful of is the taxi drivers and the amount of flyers that are handed out on Party st. The taxi drivers want to take you to Varna all the time. I would return but not with kids.
