“windy city and noisey”
Reviewed 7 August 2013

first time at this hotel and my 21st time in sunny beach, i knew where this hotel was so new it would be a busy noisy place but it was my choice to stay there as on my own my friends were in this hotel, i was told the single rooms were on the side and was nice when the sun was on the balcony but when sun off it was like the windy city. Could not fault the staff and my maid was very nice, breakfast was typical Bulgarian cuisine, lots of choice but as per usual not as hot as i and many people i know like it.

I am back in sunny beach August with my daughter staying at the hotel i stayed at last August, i am sure the Kuban is perfect for lots of holiday makers but not my choice, please enjoy your stay there and have a fantastic holiday like i have had over the 18 years i have been with my late husband, and once you make friends with people in sunny beach you have made friends for life as i well know

Room Tip: if you are on your own ask for a room to suit your needs, i was put next door to a group of young bo...

I'm a 19 year old female and went on a 2 week holiday to Hotel Kuban with my friend. The location of the hotel was ideal as when we wanted to go out for a drink, the clubs, bars and restaurants were a 30 second walk across the car park from our hotel. We stayed on the 7th floor and yes, at night time when we weren't having a late night it was noisy as the music and clubs are close to the hotel, however this didn't bother me much - but I would suggest anyone with a family (especially small children) to have a pool facing view. The rooms were immaculate and had everything that we needed and more. The cleaners came every day and were very friendly just as all of the staff were at the Kuban. The two main members of staff that I found to make my stay enjoyable we're the "animation team" George and Krissi. They always had pool/poolside activities and had something new to do every day, I got involved in all of the activities such as water polo and darts, we were made to feel welcome and I cannot praise George and Krissi enough on how good they are at their jobs. They also cater for children as well as teenagers and adults - so everyone fits in at the Kuban and activities that you wouldn't normally want to do were made fun and i always had a laugh with other holiday makers when we joined in with the activities. Another point about the pool was that the lifeguards were always alert and aware which made me feel extremely safe. The breakfast at the Kuban (I paid £700 bed and breakfast for 2 weeks) was fantastic there was a wide range of different foods and drinks to cater to everyone's needs/wants. All in all I had a fantastic holiday in Bulgaria, the restaurants were reasonably priced (try The Corner Bar and the Jupiter Steak House) and the drinks were mostly buy one get one (or sometimes two!) free on cocktails and local mixers. (try The Babylon Hotel Cocktail Bar and Mamacitas Mexican Bar/Restaurant). The highlights of the hotel are the slides and pool area, the staff members George and Krissi and also the location of the Kuban as it was near everything we needed and didn't have to worry about taxi fares etc. I would definitely recommend this hotel and the destination. I will be returning for sure!

Just got back from Bulgaria and wish we was back already! We stayed at the Kuban Hotel and I found everything great! The Staff were all so friendly as soon as you walked in! It felt very comfortable and safe as there was security all around who were very friendly. The maids were always cleaning throughout the hotel! The rooms were ideal very nice just a shame there were single beds and could have a modern facelift on the inside but that's been extremely picky! The rooms were cleaned everyday and the maid for our floor was so nice and great with my little brother! She took pride in her work and was always nice to see her. The slides and the pool were always cleaned daily and looked crystal clear! Everyone was crazy for the slides the were hours of fun and lots of people from outside the hotel would pay to get it everyday! George and Krisi from the animation team were fantastic never met anyone as nice as these two! They always were up for a laugh, kept the children busy and even let the inner child out from us adults in the daily games! They are a credit the hotel and will miss there banter. I have read reviews previously to going on this holiday and noticed people complaining about things such as the noise from the clubs and bars which is out of the hotel control as you are extremely lucky the be situation perfectly near the centre were all the good restaurants, the beach and shops are! There were nights where younger groups came in early hours of the morning drunk and loud but that wasn't all night and if you are looking out to the pool side it is much quieter. These old reviews from others need updating or deleting as they are clearly from much much older people who like to complain about near enough everything possible. In the end of the day it is a holiday more for younger people but still doesn't stop families having a great time! Restaurants I would recommend are the corner bar, they have a fantastic drag act on every night! The Jupiter which served very cheap drinks, great friendly staff and huge portions of tasty food! There are many many more with such a huge choice to pick from! The water park at nessebar is a must! and defiantly visiting nessebar itself. Overall pleased with the holiday fantastic time and sad to be home now! Defiantly better than a three star in most peoples eyes! Great value for money a must visit!

Room Tip: Near the Pool!

just returned from a 2 weeks stay in the kuban hotel, in our party there was myself and my other half and another couple with 3 kids aged 5,7+14years, we all loved it, location of hotel is right in the middle of sunny beach, the beach is less than a 5 minute walk(please go and see as its the nicest, cleanest beach ive ever saw), it can at times b noisy so make sure u have a pool facing view especially if u have young kids. we went bed and breakfast and have to admit this was really good they catered for all and had a lot for you to chose from, maids were in everyday to change your bed and give u fresh towels, we didnt have any problem with getting sunbeds by the pool, as long as u wer down before mid day. a couple of times during our stay there was a few problems with the lifts and then there was a power cut which left people trapped inside for over an hour, so please just use the stairs if ur not too high up. reception staff very friendly and helpful.if u want a safety deposit box please note you have to pay for this (6lev a day) and this is not in ur room its in reception area,the hotel also has a games room and many computers for the kids but will cost u also, you have 3 supermarkets right next to the kuban hotel one which is kind of like a superstore.this was our first trip to bulgaria and had been told by everyopne how cheap it was, got to say tho it was slightly dearer than expected and even the regulars who go evey year say this year the notice the prices had nearly doubled. between a couple of 2 adults we wer spending roughly 35-40 leva for a starter, main and 2 juices. every pub has happy hour on all spirits and cocktails, cost of cigarettes is 5 lev for a 20 pack and for a carton of 200 you are 50 leva, we took over our english notes and exchanged currency over there as u get a much higher rate, please ONLY use the CROWN BANKS to exchange ur notes as all others will rip you off and give u old money.please note also there is a lot of sex shops woman dancers on most of the bars (half dressed) which might not b suitable for young kids but the kids in my party wernt bothered about this, overall kuban hotel i will b seeing you again, great location and very clean, cant wait to go back

Room Tip: please ensure if possible you get a pool facing view especially if you have kids

After paying just over a thousand pounds for 2weeks bed and breakfast I would say you will not get better value than this hotel. We e-mailed in advance and got a lower floor in the newer extension which was a good move as it was quieter. Breakfast was fine even if my 7 year old was choosing pancakes and ice creams most mornings. Don't bother going full board or all inclusive in Bulgaria because of the excellent value in the restaraunts, most expensive places to eat out are Mcdonalda and Burger King, would reccomeend Djannys and Hawaii if you are meat lovers like myself. hotel pool is fantastic, great slides, animation team very hard working without being intrusive, free wi-fi or Internet in foyer works out about 2 quid an hour. overall would thoroughly recommend unless you want a quiet romantic getaway in which case try Tenby in South Wales which is a lovely place but the weather is a gamble.

Room Tip: Quine night sleep in new extension.
