“Kuban hotel”
Reviewed 22 September 2013

Been here a week now, when we checked in we were given no information about the hotel and how to get to our room, or we're the restaurant was, we went to our room, to find it was on the 9 th floor, we had booked a lower floor due to my girlfriend suffering from vertigo, we went back to reception. And asked for a lower room, the receptionist was arrogant and wasn't interested, had a really bad attitude, wasn't interested at all asked to see the manager and he refused to get in touch, had to wait to the next day to see our rep and she sorted it straight away and spoke with the manager who said if we didn't ind waiting till the next day she would have us a room on the 2nd floor in b block, the breakfasts are cold, and no matter how early you get there they never seem to be hot, the pool area is nice, and the slides are great, the pool is bloody cold though, was left without no toilet roll and the cleaner was no we're to be seen, had same sheets and pillow cases on for more than a week without having them changed, they don't do double beds and we had a 2 single beds pushed together, the cleanliness of the hotel is fair, wouldn't come back here again,

We have a 14 8 10 year old and we all loved sunny beach and the kuban is the best and really the best hotel for everything kuban is right in the middle. So you have it all. We was on floor 8 and the cleaning lady didn't do much but we when with lots of people n they said they laddies was great. So we just put in with them n didn't tip ours. But over all. Was a great holiday n we have come back a new family that's how good it was going back next year n can't wait :-)

Stayed with friends and kids an grandchildren. Hotel is good with a good choice at breakfast time, great pool area but need to be up early to get sun beds. The hotel was a bit central for us as it is right on the main strip and noisy on a night time, luckily we were on the 16th floor so noise wasn't too bad for us. There is cheap drink to be found in the resort but we didn't find the food in the restaurants to be that cheap, and we were not over impressed with the standard of food on offer.
A word of warning, do not go onto the beach on your own after dark, one of our crowd ended up on her own on the beach late at night and was attacked by an ageing gypsy looking woman who punched her in her stomach and her face and robbed her of all her belongings. We were told the next day to stay away from the beach after dark as there are no cameras covering this area. Fortunately this happened on our last night so didn't spoil our holiday, but was a rush to get report done with the police for insurance purposes, before departing to the airport.
Overall it was an experience but don't know if we would go back again.

My boyfriend (20) and I (19) stayed at the Kuban Hotel in June 2013 for 2 weeks. This was our first time in Bulgaria and we have to say we had an amazing holiday! Don't listen to all the bad reviews!

The hotel rooms are very clean and have everything you need, the maid was there every morning to clean! All staff were very friendly and we felt very safe as the hotel has security and they don't let you in without a band (which you are given when you check in). The pool area was great, was cleaned every morning and evening and we never had a problem getting sunbeds. Would recommend the pool bar for an afternoon snack as their sandwiches were incredible! The food in the hotel isn't great as it is catered more for Germans, however we were told this about all hotels in Bulgaria. It was cheap and cheerful to eat out with lots of choice. Would definitely recommend Hawaii for food and The Corner Bar if you like cocktails.

It can be quite noisy at night due to club music etc but this wasn't a problem for us. If you do go, Khans Tent and the Lazy Day Cruise are a must! Great days out and we met a great bunch of people! If you like designer brands such as Hollister and Abercrombie & Fitch would recommend that you leave space in your case as you can get fakes really cheap and they are great quality.

All in all we had a fantastic holiday at the Kuban Hotel and would recommend to anyone! We loved it that much we have already booked for next year!!

Room Tip: Ask for a room higher up as it is less noisy and better views!

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!
