“Second Visit to the Kuban”
Reviewed 9 November 2013

We stayed at the Kuban for the second time this year from 04/08/2013. Nothing much had changed from the first visit really but there were a couple of niggles this time.

We contacted the hotel months in advance to ask for a high floor and a sea view (which was paid for) also 2 rooms next to each other and facing onto Flower Street, they confirmed this had been done and we had rooms on the 13th floor. On arrival we had 1 room on Flower Street side and one overlooking the pool, so they were not nest to each other. We asked about moving as this was not what we had been told we had. we were told to see our rep, so the next day we did, she rang the hotel and we were told it might take a few days to sort out but they would move us. Regretably this did not happen during the fortnight.

As expected the rooms were cleaned every day and there were no complaints about that, also the hotel was as clean as we expected at all times. There always seems to be someone cleaning the floors whatever time of day or night it is. We were B&B and the breakfasts were fine, a good selection of cold and cooked food was available.

The pool was not as clean this year as last. I did not venture into it at all this year because there was a rim of scum and snot all the way round the edge, it was clearly visible and to be fair it just turned my stomach. I know it can happen but it wasn't like that last year so maybe the filter system isn't working as well or something like that but it was disgusting from my point of view.

There was a lot more noise from other guests this year and a lot more younger all male/female groups. We don't have a problem with younger people but the noise was quite bad some nights. We did notice however that the hotel had installed security cameras on every floor this year and the security guy was sat watching them all the time but it didn't stop younger groups sometimes gathering in the corridoors.

Having said all that we still enjoyed our stay and would give the Kuban another go. However if there are going to be more and more younger groups, we may well try somewhere else which would be shame really, as the location and views from the Kuban take some beating. We can stand for hours people watching on Flower Street late at night.

I know a lot of people complain about the noise from the music in Flower Street but for us it isn't that bad and the higher the floor, the quieter it seems to be.

So to sum up, we still think it is a good hotel but they need to be carefull with the younger elements as it could drive some families away and they need to sort out the pool problem.

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor (above 8) if you like a view and preferably on the Flower Street side.

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,

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.

Stayed July 2013, travelled with friends

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...
