“great holiday”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

had a great time in this hotel, if you want night life then this is not the place for you but if you just want a quiet peaceful holiday then this is perfect. the hotel was lovely, bit quiet as it was the first week in the season but all staff very pleasant and helpful, not all the excursions were running but we did go on the Nessebar trip which was very good. Great place if you enjoy a walk, We followed a trail right up into the mountains and also walked right along the beach to Byala where we found the remains of a fortress, proper time team stuff! i would recomend this walk to anyone who just likes to wander around The food was very good and the Thomsons rep, Barney, was brilliant, he took us for a walk around the area on his day off pointing out things of interest. Although it was only a small animation team they alll worked very hard, sports and things during the day and entertainment in the bar at night. particularly enjoyed the comedy night as all the sketches were done without speaking so it didn't matter what nationality was watching. All in all, a very nice peaceful holiday with enough for us to do without just sitting by the pool all day

We have just returned from a weeks holiday at this lovely hotel situated right on the beach. From the time we arrived we found the staff very friendly and helpful. Our room was very spacious and cleaned on a daily basis. The hotel areas were clean. The food was good. Would recommend the Bulgarian meal especially if you like meat. As mentioned in a previous review a guest asked for brown sauce.and it was in the dining room the next day. You cannot ask for service better than that. Excellent. We will definitely be coming back.

Just come back from a week at this hotel, which was my third visit to this hotel, being the first first week of the season there was not much open. I leant from last year not to take traveller cheques with you as there are few places that will exchange them, but the banks and exchange units do not wont to know apart from Crown.
Barney the Thomson rep is very good that he gave his day off to give a ramble around Obzor town pointing out the best places to visit. There was not many places open due to being the first week of the season.
The hotel is one of best hotels that I have stoped at, this being as I have said my third time and will be going back hopefully in 2016. The room was up to a nice standard and I would not rate this hotel as a 4* having stoped in a RUI Place Hotel in Jamicia. The hotel manager and his staff are a credit to RUI. I had a point of asking if there was any reason that there was no brown sauce on the service for breakfast and I was informed that they would look in to this, but this was not a complete.
The bar staff are out of this world that with in the first drink that they serve you with they know what you drink and all you have to say is "yes" and your drink is served.

Hotel is right on the beach its an amazing view! We had a lovely spacious room, with a new beautiful and again spacious bathroom. Bed were very comfortable. There were so many pools which were kept very clean, the one indoors which was heated was very good for late night swims.

I think its worth pointing out that the building was magnificent! Such a gorgeous design and lets face it hotel buildings arent always flattering so thats a massive plus.

The food was just too good for words. I cant even begin to describe the wide choice of all sorts of freshly cooked dishes...and the salads too! Just brilliant. Food was available all day with the best snack bar ive ever seen. They had everything, pancakes, ice cream, waffles cakes etc etc.

Im already looking to book again and have a truly relaxing luxury break

This hotel is probably the best there is in obzor. The food was great, the staff were great, the entertainment was very amateur, the hotel management was weak. It does say in your room guide and also outside the restaurant (even has pictures) that men must wear shirt and trousers to dinner. The management actually welcome you each evening at the restaurants but pay no attention to men who turn up looking like they have just walked off the beach. Admitted a lot of them are Russian, or Rumanian but there is no excuse for not taking a shower before you dine! This was the only point I have, otherwise I would have given 5 stars. The location is great too. Everything you want to see, in and around Obzor is within strolling distance. Walk up to the bus station and take a bus to Varna, an experience to behold. Enjoyed our first trip to Bulgaria.

Room Tip: All rooms look out over the sea and pool except for a few that look over the sea and the local footb...
