14 fantastic days in a superb all inclusive hotel complex and location from 9th July. We can recommend Balkan Holidays as our experience started with a very efficient airline and airport at Bourgas. We were transported in an air conditioned mini bus direct to the Marina Beach and were warmly welcomed by the bell boy and reception staff then quickly taken to our room. As we arrived at 11.45pm were told that there is an evening buffet at 12 midnight and the bar was open till 2am, excellent start to our holiday.
All meals are buffet style with a wide variety of meats, salads, vegetables, fruit and cakes we were spoilt for choice and the quality was superb, although some food was lukewarm at times. There was a popular grill station at all meal times so queuing was inevitable. You could eat and drink from 7.30am till after midnight. Theme nights gave a mix of restaurant layout and food style. Dine around is a must to sample Bulgarian and Italian service and style. Or just use the buffet style in the other 2 hotels on site to give a feel of somewhere different.
Rooms are large, cleaned every day and included air conditioning and balcony. We had a side view looking to the beach which was quiet, as the pool view could be noisy from 10am due to music from the pool animation area.
The pool and beach area is well kitted out with plenty of sun beds and brollies, kept spotless by the cleaners. The area is always busy and reservation does happen so can be a small nuisance, but we always found a space, the sun is never in shadow so doesn’t matter where you are. If you want it quiet you can use the pool facilities at the other two hotels.
There are many shared facilities and entertainments across all 3 hotels which was supported by a very professional and hardworking animation team, bar and restaurant staff. The 1 hour nightly shows were excellent; we were disappointed that there was not entertainment on the lobby bar balcony which could have enhanced the atmosphere.
The holiday rep Elena was very helpful and gave some good advice on trips out and visits to other towns if going by yourself. Sozopol is well worth a visit day or night and if offered go on the small yacht and visit the St Ivan Island and jump of the boat and swim in the sea. We also hired a car from the hotel 'Sixth' company, only £52 for the day. Travelled to popular Sunny beach, Nessebar and other villages.
The complex is used in the main by Romanians, Russians, Germans and Bulgarians however, most staff speaks good english and they really appreciate a thank you. Most of the foreigners don’t speak which was a shame and can make it quiet at times, but we found good company from Gary, Linda, Neil and Nicky.
As the temperature was in the 30's every day (one evening thunder storm, gone within an hour) we could have stayed longer and would recommend this complex to all types of families.
