“Great location can't sunbathe at hotel no space”
Reviewed 31 January 2014 via mobile

Great location right where u need to be next to bars something to eat, make sure when u book u pay the little extra for the sea view it's worth it! Or otherwise u will be opposite just facing KFC & a bunch of horses also make sure u go self catering don't go all inclusive cause all bulgaria hotels do bole food it's really cheap to eat out & about if u want to be able to sunbathe around the pool u best be up at 6 in the morning otherwise u got no chance all day best just go to the beach which is 50m away

Stayed here around 4 years ago.. but was a very good hotel.. when we arrived we were allocated a room in the older of the 2 buildings.. didnt fill me with enthusiasm at first.. but when we got to the room it was great... a suite! the balcony was huge.. 2 bathrooms , 1 en suite.. and the bedroom was huge!

Location was great.. right in the heart of everything.

Staff were friendly and helpful, breakfast was nice if a little bit of a shambles.. but nothing major..

Would recommend this hotel

Room Tip: Ask for a suite in the older building!

Stayed at this hotel 2 years ago. Perfect location close to all shops,bars and restaurants couldnt ask for a better location. We stayed Half Board at the hotel food was disgusting that is the only word I have for it. The hotel itself was really clean and good entertainment on. Bulgaria itself is really cheap to eat and drink out so defo do self catering not worth all inclusive at all.

We traveled July 2013

Hotel was lovely right on the beach, and not far from anywhere you want to be, we ventured out to a few restaurants which were all lovely, all friendly people.

We went in the summer when kids were off so it was really busy, out of 10 days we only got a sunbed at the pool 1 day and my partner unfortunately had a rude German women running past him to race him to the sunbeds (this was at 6am in the morning) even though it says do not reserve the seats we had no option than to do this, fortunately even though the women dived over 4 sunbeds there were still 2 for us.

The food you can order at the pool is nice, same as the Italian restaurant which is attached just where you sit is different. We were half board and went to the included evening meal once and my partner grabbed my arm and we walked out, it didn't look very good at all. Breakfast is good, we went almost every day.

Best part of the holiday was the singer/musician Daniel, he sung rock songs every night he was really friendly and great fun and had a really good laugh. Bar tender with the bald head was good fun, always giving us strange shots !! Cocktails buy one get one free - cant complain

We expected the place to be cheaper because of what friends had told us, it is cheaper than home but not amazingly cheap as it was made out to be. We spent about £1000.00 in 10 days, we went on a couple of trips as well so not too bad I guess. The Khans tent was great, you sit with strangers though (I think they put you in similar age ranges) we were unsure at first but as the drinks were flowing we had a great laugh, although we missed the bus back some how!!! Haha. We also went on a boat trip which was about £30 all you can eat and drink, was lovely, really recommend.

Room was good, clean, shower always worked even if it did leak a bit, the bed was comfy and the TV had English channels, mini fridge too, just felt strange having a carpeted room on holiday!

Would go back but maybe out of season, it was really really busy.

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 .
