This was our 3rd year back at the Globus and already booked for next year. Have read all the reviews for this hotel and really everyone had different expectations about what they expect from this hotel. I love hence going back next year.
Room - yes the decor might be old but how many hotels do you know back home that are always upgrading the rooms. The room is fine for a two week holiday and the maids keep the rooms clean wanting in every day unless you put the do not disturb sign up which I did often as I did not need them in every day as I was quite capable of keeping the room clean myself. We had a room to the front and it is not as noisy late at night as some people have mentioned though I prefer a room to the back because you get the sun in the afternoon to evening. Get a safe but we did not have any trouble leaving things in the room but it is better to be safe than sorry.
Reception - I found the staff very pleasant always had a smile for me and hello as I always said hello to them. Yes when your case was taken up the guys would look for a tip but they are on duty to all hours of the morning waiting to show you up to your room and probably for rubbish wages.
Location - this is brilliant right in the heart and on the front central to all. Couldn't ask for a better location.
Food - go bed and breakfast but even avoid that. It is the same for most of the hotels. The bar restaurant food was nice and have been told the A La Carte restaurant is lovely but there are also plenty of lovely restaurants around.
Bar - the staff are all lovely and it amazes me how they remember people when you think of the thousands that come through the doors. We had a great time and were looked after well by Kalin, Bryan, Mario and Marina. They always had a smile and a laugh and they really do put in the hours and sometimes have to put up with some right idiots.
All in all I love this hotel and do feel it gets some unfair criticism. They are upgrading the reception area for next year so can't wait to see what they do.
As I said have already booked for next year and can't wait to return so give it a go and remember you are here for a holiday not to stay there for ever.
See you next year guys and can't wait.

Room Tip: Go for a room at the back to get the sun late afternoon

The hotel is excellent, the staff friendly and welcoming but food oh my goodness its the worst I have ever seen or tasted anywhere in the world.The food is brought out cold and put into the carvery unit to warm up, dinner starts at 6pm until 9pm so by the time dinner is about to finish its just starting to get warm, the chef knows 100 different ways to cook potatoes badly and that's me being kind. Breakfast is even worse but if you go down into the bar in the Lobby you can pay for a proper cooked breakfast which is wrong when you've already paid for your food. My advice book room only and eat out as food is cheap and well cooked in most places. After the first day we never bothered with the hotel food again but did go in just to see what poor food was on offer each day and walk straight back out. The hotels location is superb and the sea view we had was excellent but the food let's the overall experience down .

As a last minute deal we chose the Hotel Globus as have never travelled to Bulgaria before and were excited at the prospect of a new experience. The travel agent mentioned that if you didn't like the food on a half board basis then it was so cheap to eat out. We gave the food a try in this hotel but it was more geared towards Eastern European/Russian tastes which we appreciated. We managed a couple of dinners/breakfasts but even then, the only fruit supplied was melon or plums for the whole 11 days and we just couldn't stomach the margarine nor the bread so we opted to eat out for the rest of our hols. This was the only negative.

The hotel is a beach fronted hotel..with views across to Old Nessabar and in the middle of all activities in the beach area. excellent location, staff so friendly and the maid service is second to none. We had a sea view balcony on the 4th floor above the main poolside bar and there was entertainment every night..albeit the same repertoire. We couldn't have asked for a better room as the views were stunning. The music stopped at 12am which we liked. MYbe because it was September time and less youngsters?

We paid 11 days for the price of 7 flew from Edinburgh and to be honest weren't expecting much... But what we got was a great wee hotel..right in the hub of all beach activity with the friendliest staff which was indeed a positive. We are definitely going to return..prob not to Globus as we would prefer a wee bit of a higher standard of bth accommodation and food but if they upped their game would def go back...mainly for the location and friendliness.

Are already looking to return to Bulgaria next year.

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.
