Stayed here end of May, beginning June.
Hotel was ok - arrived very early morning and check in was quick and efficient. We were on the 8th floor, room was clean and fresh towels every day. Seemed to be an issue with water pouring out the back of sink, however there was a drain in the middle of the bathroom floor. Air con didn't work, but assuming cos it hadn't reached hot enough temps yet, as wasn't on anywhere in Sunny Beach. View of the beach was fab.
I'm fussy, so knew the food wasn't going to be great, but seriously, who goes to Bulgaria for the food?!? Found enough to live on and breakfast was good. My mate is less fussy and she enjoyed a lot of the meaty stews. Eating outside the hotel is cheap enough too. I think the dining room might struggle with bigger crowds when the season is in full swing though. The staff were hard working, but not naturally smiley.
The hotel is cheap, so there are lots of young people of all nationalities and they could do with an entertainment team to channel some of their enthusiasm during the day - it can get noisy round the pool. Other nationalities aren't as naturally polite as the British, but similarly don't expect you to treat them like that either, so just give as good as you get and it's all good.
I don't think I'd go back all inclusive again if it was cheaper not to, cocktails and beer are so cheap in the local bars who all have loads of promos on. Nightlife was fab outside the hotel too and something for all ages.
Did a couple of Thomas Cook trips and they were good - would recommend Khan's Tent to all and the bar crawl was a good mix of ages and the reps were fab. Our rep was good and took his responsibilites very seriously.
Asked to book a slot in the shower room for the day we were leaving as we had a late flight out. Was no problem, although no towels provided so we wished we'd kept the ones from our room. Beach towels also required for poolside, first time I've not had these provided when all inclusive.
Overall, it wasn't the best hotel in the world, it wasn't luxurious, but it was clean, fresh towels every day, sun loungers available all day, and enough food to live on. Can't ask for more than that for the price we paid.
