Just got back from a week here with my friend. Nicest hotel that both of us have stayed at. Even though we'd booked a twin we were upgraded to a studio on arrival. unfortunately this had a double bed! we told management we wanted a twin room but the only one available at the time was one with a nest in the balcony so we persevered for the week and put pillows down the middle of the bed! excellent variety of food (could explain why I put on 6lb!!). immaculately clean rooms, restaurant and pool area. seriously couldn't fault the place....apart from the Germans!

We stayed here for a week at the end of June. Two couples flew out and arrived in the early hours of Tuesday morning. We were initially given rooms on different floors but after requesting to be next to each other, they sorted it out.
The hotel was probably the nicest I have stayed in. Rooms were of a good size and came with free air con, a TV and a fridge as well as the usual furniture. The beds were comfy and the free air con was a big plus! If traveling with kids, you might want to watch the TV as there was a lot of fairly hardcore stuff on about half the channels in both our rooms! There was a safe, it was about £20 fort the week I think.

The pools are brilliant. We didn't struggle to get 4 sunbeds together despite coming down at varying times each day. The pool bar and the lobby bar are both open 24 hours which was also a bonus.You can play with balls/use lilos etc in the pool no problem. There is a nigh on permanent happy hour at the bar, 2 cocktails for the price of 1. It was around 10lev for a cocktail, so when getting the BOGOF offer, you were paying about £2.40 for a drink. A pint of beer is 4lev, so about £1.80...Much cheaper than back home but there were cheaper places if you went up the road.

We had another couple staying in a different hotel and they spent most of the holiday at our hotel with no problems.

I am probably the fussiest eater in the world. I ate in the restaurant a couple of nights but I wasn't mad keen on it. I can though appreciate that for 99% of the world, it was cracking. There was tonnes of different stuff and it seemed to change every day. If you are in the same 1% as me, McDonalds and Subway are about 15 minutes away. There is a kebab shop a 60 second walk from the hotel, the lads who do the night shift there were sound!

The staff at the pool bar were excellent, very friendly. The cleaners were friendly, the reception staff as well. The only people we came across that were rude was a waiter in the restaurant with a bit of an attitude problem and some of the other guests. The English were certainly a minority in this hotel and it certainly made me consider that manners work in a very different way in other countries....lol.

The main drinking strip is about a 25-30 minute walk when sober...Try an hour when walking back, getting food and so on! Plenty of shops on the way up selling tonnes of fake designer gear.
We tended to stop off in a bar or two on the beachfront on the way up to break up the journey. There are some decent places to have a cocktail..And that's pretty much all we drank while we were here as it was so much cheaper than anything else.

I would say the strip (Flower Street) was aimed more at groups of lads or girls rather than couples but we still had a good laugh. Would highly recommend a bar called Amigos which is just at the end of the strip with a pink vintage car outside. Would recommend avoiding Coyote Ugly. One of our lot ordered a Long Island Ice Tea and got a bottle of Ice Tea! When we tried to explain the mistake, we got a rude and hostile response!

Walking back from the strip was fine but I wouldn't have liked to do it on my own when drunk....Plenty of dodgy characters knocking about.

Pretty much all the bars charge you half a lev to use the toilet so try and keep change with you at all times!

Back to the hotel itself, it had a well equipped gym compared to what I am used to from a hotel. We used it a few times and it had free weights (Max 25kg), a pull up/dips bar, a lat pulldown, a couple of chest machines and a shoulder machine...In addition to a couple of treadmills/bikes.
There was a spa which looked very nice. We intended to have a massage and Turkish bath but just never got round to it. It was reasonably priced though and well worth a look.

The shop sold lilos but not balls. 20 Lambert is about £2.40. I normally smoke Embassy but they don't sell them anywhere in Bulgaria that I saw! Bensons/Marlboro were available alongside the local stuff. 200 fags at the airport on the way back worked out at about £25. You can bring 800 per person back. I couldn't find this information anywhere online for sure so i think that is VERY IMPORTANT to know...As I would have loved to see a review with confirmation on here!

I would highly recommend the Neon Party if you are there to party. Meeting 8PM on Thursdays at the bottom of Flower Street, you get a 2-3 hour boat party followed by free entrance to Disco Orange where you get neon paint dumped all over your head. It cost 33lev and Disco Orange was 35lev entrance on it's own with no neon party so well worth it! That was the only excursion we did but everyone seems to rave about Khans Tent.

One minor thing....The airport in Bourgas is a right dive! We saw mice running around when we landed. When we were waiting to fly back, once through security it was like a refugee camp! There was a tiny McDonalds that sold two products, a Costa Coffee and a couple of local shops. There were probably a thousand people crammed into an area the size of a large school hall and there were about 150 seats to go round everybody....People were battling for chairs ha! Minor thing though, Sunny Beach itself was a lot nicer than we expected...Not run down at all!

Overall I thought the hotel was great, Bulgaria was nice and we were lucky to have great weather...It was above 30 degrees every day. On the whole I prefer Spain but you get more for your money here!
If you are going to Bulgaria with the family, this is a great hotel. If it's a big group of friends going out on the lash you are a 15lev taxi ride from the strip or a long walk. If I went with the boys, I would probably have wanted to stay somewhere a bit closer to the action.

Just got back from Sunny Beach, stayed two weeks with my wife, we both could have stayed for another two.

The hotel we found to be very good in all areas, super sea view from room, excellent maid service, very good food.

Have stayed in RIU, Luabay, and Iberostar on previous occasions and can honestly say that during our stay there was plenty of choice, always hot and of good quality. Not always the case in the other three. Yes it does get a bit manic at times but don't they all, when offering a buffet service.

Only negative re the restaurant would be the waiting staff, not all but most would either clear your table before you had finished eating or not clear it at all between courses, check your drinks bill and get a receipt as we heard a number of queries re payment.

No problem getting sunbeds, pool area also very good.

Many reviews have rated the entertainment as poor, unfortunately we have to agree with this, whilst the animation team do what they can within what is probably a very low budget, a hotel of this standard should do better. Visiting cabaret, tribute band or just something different from the teams effort. They put on a Karaoke show twice which was ok, however every other bar in resort does Karaoke.

Blackpool, Malia, Las Vegas and the local Sunday market all in one is the best way we can describe the main resort. It caters for all and I would suggest that you would struggle to find anywhere similar, with fun fairs, casinos, playboy club, nightclubs galore and lots and lots of tacky market stall type shops. Despite this there are also many bars and restaurants that offer lovely locations on the beach, candles and sofas etc, with drinks at cheaper prices than the hotel.

Visited Nesebar, Svelt Vijas by bus, cheap and crowded, did not experience any problems as others have with pickpockets etc.

Our holiday to Sunny Beach was overall very good, blessed by the weather and an awareness of the pitfalls gained form various travel guides on the internet, yes we had a good time and provided you keep your wits about you i am sure you could too.

Since our return I have checked on the wages and hours worked, the average wage in hotels and bars appears to be about £80 per week for 60-70 hours, Bulgaria seems to have an issue re workers rights etc, this probably explains the bad experience others have had re crime and being conned.

If you do go i am sure you will have a good time.

Room Tip: Sea view brilliant, however no real sunshine on balcony.

Stayed here from 14th – 22nd June. Lovely modern hotel. The room was quite small but adequate for the two of us, sea view is great and looks down over the pool. We were half board and found the food to be great the majority of the time. The man serving by the pizza was very sweet and always smiling. Juice and hot drinks available at breakfast but drinks are chargeable for dinner, not sure if this is standard across the board as I normally do a/l or sc in hotels but was a bit miffed about having to pay even for water so we ended up taking down our own drinks.

Always plenty of sun loungers to go round even if arrived midday, and the pool was never crowded but beware it is FREEZING so definitely a dunk your feet in kind of job! We had rain for about 2 hours on the first day but apart from that it was sunny and hot – around 27degs. Sarah – the Thompson rep was lovely and told us where to go and where to find things.

Overall, a lovely hotel. Sunny beach on the other hand was a bit like Magaluf, with the strip and rowdy 18 year olds, and the usual karaoke bars. Nice for a few nights but after awhile gets boring and tacky. I really liked Nessebar, with its little shops and great views of the sea, the bus is only 1Lev each way from the hotel so it really is a bargain, make sure you get a seat though as no air con and you are packed in like sardines otherwise!

Currently staying in this hotel until 12 July 2013. The hotel is flawless in every way. Attentive service thoroughly clean everywhere, both inside and out. Extensive multiple-course meals with an abundance of choice at each course all buffet style and no restrictions whatsoever on how many times you can top up your plate. Plenty of room around two pools - there is the usual 7:30 am dash for the sun beds but if you don't fancy that there is the beach just a few metres outside of the hotel where there are plenty of sun beds at £5 per day for two plus parasol. Plenty of entertainment for those that want it but plenty of quiet areas for those that don't. Rooms are quite big as is bathroom with shower and bath. We are here with Thomson holidays and all rooms have sea view - we are in room 623 - 6 floors up - there are 12 floors - but facing the sea and pools - lovely view and a decent size balcony. We have nothing but praise for the hotel - the weather is great too but alway a reasonably strong breeze but that helps take the edge off the sun so is welcome. Will definitely re-visit! Here with wife but it caters for families equally as well
