“Great Weekend Getaway from Sofia”
Reviewed 5 April 2010

The Riu Pravets Hotel recently opened in the town of Pravets, about 40 minutes from Sofia just off the Hemus Motorway. The fact that it's easily accessed by a four lane motorway is a great advantage - especially in a country that does not even have a completed motorway in the whole country!

The hotel itself is nice and airy, the lobby area is spacious and comfortable. The rooms are very nice, with very comfortable beds, very modern touches like a flat screen tv integrated into an attractive furniture piece opposite the beds. The bathroom is modern as well. We stayed in a room overlooking the lake so the view to the lake and the surrounding hills and forest was nice.

The Spa is excellent. The pool (indoor) is very big and the area where it's located is very well decorated and attractive. The Spa contains all the usual stuff (Finnish Sauna, Steam room, etc. etc.). I had a foot massage done and thought it was mediocre in general. My wife had a back massage done by an Indonesian lady and was very satisfied. The staff at the Spa were very friendly and responsive.

There is also an 18 hole golf course but the facilities are closed until the late spring, there was a lot of snow on the ground when we visited in February.

We visited the hotel during Valentine's Day weekend so the hotel was packed with people from Sofia. The breakfast and dinner were buffet style during this weekend. The quality of the food was mediocre. The service at the restaurant was very slow and inefficient. It took nearly 30 minutes to get our drinks.

Overall I would recommend this hotel, though if you can avoid the buffet style dinners and either visit the "Game" restaurant or order room service.

Reviewed 25 March 2010

This is such a beautiful property, if you are looking for romantic weekend or meeting your business partners in style, then seriously consider visiting. We stayed in a lake view room - spacious, bright, modern with an excellent view of the lake and forest in front of it. All the staff that I encountered was excellent (well, maybe one guy that waited our dinner table acted kind of grumpy). Don't miss the spa, I mean it. I am not a golf enthusiast, so I can't competently say if what I saw in this regard was ok or not, but I have a feeling they haven't missed a thing there either. Anyway although it is only a four-star category venue, it deserves five-star for efforts and service.
