Just got back from a weeks holiday in Bulgaria, staying at the Globus, well it wasn't a 4* hotel like we were expecting anyway, the rooms were basic, but clean, our toilet and shower tray leaked for the whole week we were there, and we had someone elses smelly flipflops on our balcony for the whole of our holiday!! We went bed and breakfast and I'm glad as the breakfast was disgusting, there was watery liquid surrounding everything!! We also ate in the aqua restaurant which was nice and quiet for a couple of days till it was pointed out by the rude man in the restaurant we should be eating in the other block of the hotel next doors restaurant Bellevue, all I can say it OMG it was a nightmare, everyone was eating in here, there was no tables, cups, chairs, clean cutlery, and people just standing trying to eat there breakfast standing up? this made no sense as the restaurant in the hotel block we were staying in(aqua) was quiet and only had about 3 people in it, so I complained to the moody receptionist about it and she eventually changed it. The attitude of the staff in this hotel was rude ,unfriendly and very moody apart from the barstaff inside they were lovely and very friendly. the general cleanliness of this hotel wasn't great the toilets inside the hotel were dirty and very smelly and the pool had loads of broken tiles and white paper in the fliters there was mould growing on the plastics surrounding the pool, there was about 50 sunloungers and I would says 50% of these were broken!!
Bulgaria its self was ok the people are generally rude and unmannered and was fed up of constant getting hassled to go in peoples bars, you couldn't enjoy a nice walk along the beach at night without getting hassled. althought saying that we enjoyed some lovely meals while there, mainly the phoenix steakhouse was amazing steaks and Chinahouse across from hotel was good and worth the money. Bulgaria its self is not as cheap as people make out, I was told it was going to be like 50p for a beer, £1 for a cocktail, £8 for a 3 course steak meal, were in reality it was £6 for a cocktail,£40 for to steak dinners,£20 for two mcdonalds and £10 for 2 cans of juice on the plane, so was very disappointed with this.

Room Tip: we had a pool/beach view room, the views were lovely but very noisey at night, as the hotel has a si...

Just got back from a week with friends and family staying at the globus. Having been to sunny beach 3 times previously we knew what to expect, nice clean rooms friendly staff and appalling food,and thats what we got.This is the 4th hotel we have stayed at and nothing changes. Yet you still get people on full board and all inclusive packages in sunny beach??? We knew what it was going to be like but it was still nice of our travel agent to warn us off those packages. There are plenty of great little restaurants that cater for all tastes and english breakfasts are served all day in most of them. If you want an early night dont get a room with a pool view as it is quite noisy till the early hours. ( sorry if we kept anyone up) Still cheap as chips for local lager, 2.5 lev in most places, but there are still plenty of lev bars around.Food is also cheap, a breakfast will cost on average 8 lev and evening meal cost us on average 40 lev per couple with a few drinks in. Dont forget to ask for your 1st large beer(wine or soft drink) free if they want you to eat in there restaurants. There were 14 of us so we were getting even better deals. Remember shy bairns get nowt. And please remember only change your money in the hotel,crown kiosks or banks,ALL the others will rip you off big time!!!

Room Tip: If you go to bed early you dont want a room with a pool view.

just got back on 14th september from 2 weeks at the globus and wont forget it in a hurry!!! only one bad thing about the place was the food, breakfast was just about edible but the rest was pretty awful, even the bar staff joke about it lol but go B&B and youll be fine because there are tons of places to eat out very cheaply, and all nearby due to the hotels excellent central location, and the hotel italian restaurant is superb! big mention for wee billy, the restaurant manager, always out front haggling for customers but in a good way not an annoying way....good guy and a good laugh!
the reception staff were a bit cold but the cleaners were in every day doing a good job and mario and kallin in the lobby bar were superb too......ask for the 10 shots deal and you end up with near enough 20!!! quality!!! every time we walked past they acknowledged us and said hello, just top blokes.
pool was cold but that was ok after a few beers in the baking sun served up by the friendly barmaids in both the pool bars.
myself and my mate were very very drunk on a few occasions but the hotel boss who usually sat at the pool bar was always in good spirits and always laughed it off.
highlight of the holiday was the last night when i was given a birthday cake complete with sparklers and candle lol and serenaded by the restaurant singer with happy birthday to me and my song, don't look back in anger. me and 3 friends had a slice and i sliced up pieces for all the waiters/waitresses who stood around applauding and singing.
all in all a great holiday, a great hotel and after my 2nd time in sunny beach in 3 years i will be back again, to the globus!!!

Room Tip: if you like an early night, dont get a sea view room, otherwise, definitely get the sea view room!

We stayed a week b&b at the Globus and decided after the first trip to breakfast that we would explore elsewhere. The hotel itself is nice and clean, and seems well run. Walls are thin and windows offer no barrier to late night revellers so a sea view room didnt see me sleeping before 2am. But I layed in the mornings and took breakfast out of the hotel. So glad I did, so many places to dine and great choice. Fridge in the room was a good idea and easily stocked with a good supermarket or two close at hand for cheap bottled water etc.
Next time room only.

my partner and i have been to sunnybeach over a dozen times and stayed in most hotels there, ,and we find, for location,cleanliness,service and food the hotel globus ranks as probably our favourite.yes,weve stayed in 5 star accomodation, but find that most of 5 star hotels are not very central,exception being the barcello.the facillities at the globus are very good indeed,which include a fantastic large indoor pool,the rooms are also very clean and are cleaned daily,all staff are pleasant,and we found our numerous stays here to be really enjoyable.

Room Tip: ask for pool view,and preferably a high floor.
