Barcelo Royal Beach
Ranked #17 of 221 Hotels in Sunny Beach
Reviewed 17 August 2014

Accommodation - Amazingly luxurious rooms with more space than any other hotel I've stayed in overseas. The quality of the bathroom was also exceptional and they were all very modern with décor - 5/5

Food - Amazing choice of food so there would always be more than 2 or 3 dish's on offer each night to please people and if your all inclusive, you will not be disappointed with any of the meals. Brekky, lunch and dinner all offered very good spreads

Entertainment - Mention to Kilan (I think correct spelling) who was a very good host throughout the week. Great banter and made us feel welcome whilst also ensuring we were involved in water polo most days. Waterpolo, table tennis, water volleyball and aerobics sessions ensured everyone was busy through the day and the evening shows were pretty good but mainly focussed on children.

Live piano/saxophone most evenings which ensured everyone had a very relaxing evening.

Location - Within 2 minutes of the beach and entertainment so couldn't ask to be better placed

Sunnybeach resort - Offers great variation for people of all ages. Beach inflatable assault courses, numerous fair rides and sling shots to standard watersports like jetsko or pedlo. The strip was really busy every night but nothing like we have experienced in places like Malia, Magaluf etc... Has numerous clubs and bars but the fact it isn't quite as crazy makes it an amazing resort for people of all ages.

We are a couple of 24 and 28yrs old so loved it.

Price - Barceló was one of the most expensive hotels in sunnybeach but in terms of value, it was definitely well worth the price. You could definitely find cheaper hotels to do a good job but if you want a bit more class then this is well worth going to. The price of food/drink outside of the hotel was dirt cheap so it was actually a struggle to spend all of our money which makes a nice change to budgeting euro's in Greece/spain.

If you have a Metro Bank account it is free to withdraw cash from ATM's and you will get an extra 5% per transaction - if you don't the exchange rate is still strong.

Room Tip: Ask for pool view - can't go wrong.

This hotel very cozy, the personnel works quickly and qualitatively, animators the most benevolent and responsible.The hotel is provided both for rest, and for entertainments on any age of guests. The hotel to be near the sea, and also in the center. If you decide here to have a rest, you receive a comfort maximum, it is a lot of remarkable impressions.

Room Tip: it doesn't matter

This was our 4th stay in this hotel - I think its perhaps gone down a little in its customer service - but it is still excellent. We were self catering in a 2 bedroom apartment.

The rooms are cleaned every day and are very modern and spacious.

The pool area is fantastic - the best and biggest that I've seen in Sunny Beach. You do still need to get up early to get a good spot by the pool though. I didn't partake in much of the entertainment activities - but from what I could see they were very friendly and well organised.

The food and drinks are a little more expensive than the surrounding restaurants - but the quality doesn't compare. I was self catering - so didn't try the buffet restaurant.

The reasons I wasn't happy:
On our previous stays - the barmen would wander around the pool area taking orders for drinks and food, not this time - a bit of a pain but not a major issue.
One night we turned up at the A La Carte restaurant looking for a table, we were looked up and down and then told no, the restaurant was full. There was plenty of tables empty. We were told we could have a table the next night. We said no thanks and walked away, because I felt that I wasn't welcome there. I think they realised how annoyed I was because they came running after me and said that I could have a table for later on that night. I took the table and enjoyed a magnificent meal - so it turned out well in the end.
The ladies toilets in the reception area are a bit disgusting, and the Wifi is fierce slow!

But don't let these small issues put you off. Hopefully I will be back next year!

We are currently 12 days into our 14 day break here at the Barcelo Royal Beach Hotel in Sunny Beach. Before we arrived and after watching what happens in Sunny Beach we were a little nervous about taking our main holiday of the year here. Also some of the hotel reviews were mixed which caused us a little concern.
If you are headed here on holiday, or you are considering coming here on holiday, do yourself a favour and BOOK IT!!
I stay in hotels all over the world as I travel extensively with my job, as a family we have stayed in 3 other Barcelo hotels, this is by far and away the best of the lot.
I am stunned that some guests have been able to come up with negative comments about the hotel. The staff are fantastic, very very helpful and go out of their way to make you feel welcome.
During our stay it was my wife's birthday, guest relations spotted this on her passport as we checked in and on the day of her birthday there was a knock on the door with the team bringing her a chocolate birthday cake, complete with candles and icing!
The pricing of drinks in the hotel is more expensive than in the rest of e resort but I think you need to keep in mind that you'd be buying a drink in a 5 star hotel, not a cafe! If you bought a drink in the Ritz you'd expect to pay way more than you would at Wetherspoons!!
The hotel is spotless - all of the hotel public toilets are cleaned on a hourly basis.
The pools are fantastic - I can't agree with some of the past comments left about them being too cold, it's 30 degrees plus here at the moment and jumping into a refreshing pool is just what the doctor ordered. I was expecting a nice bath with some of the past comments.
The maids clean the rooms from top to bottom daily, changing towels. Bed linen is changed weekly.
Our room is enormous with a kitchen, (oven, 2 electric rings and fridge) a dining table, sofa, armchairs, 2 flat screen TV's and a very comfortable bed.
All of the rooms have independent air conditioning and we have a bath and separate shower cubicle.
As for Sunny Beach, yes it can be rowdy and it does have some places which leave little to the imagination.
However it also has some wonderful places to eat and drink at, which are not covered by the bar crawls. We are here with our 6 year old and he is having the time of his life as we are too!
The people are so helpful and friendly and the pricing here is such value for money compared to Spain - you can get a large beer for 1 lev - around 40p and it's good stuff!!
When you step out of the hotel there are so many places to eat at you're spoilt for choice.
A lot of the restaurants have wood fired pizza ovens and barbecue pits, they offer top quality roasted chicken, pork, beef etc and do it all on giant skewers. We've not had a bad meal yet and for 3 of us with wine the most we've paid for dinner is 96 lev which is around £38
If you can search out Djanny restaurant this has been our favourite place to eat, the food is fab!
To find basically head up Flower Street, cross the road at the top, head through a small market and Djanny is on the left, you'll see people queuing outside to get in! Join them you won't be disappointed!

Room Tip: We were in block D and can not grumble about anything at all.
