Now the swimmimg pool is destroyed.A stupid hotel is in construction,and I am looking desperately for a swimming pool outside,near the sea.it was heaven on earth,and stupid bulgarians destroyed it. Now there is nothing to sea or to do in Constantin et Elena resort.Nothing! Hope that hotel will be closed by lack of stupid tourists.

The only saving grace is that due to the fact you can spend all day there for the admission price of 10 leva per person it would NOT be a bargain. Lounge chairs & umbrellas are paid for separately once inside. There are only three hot water spouts inconveniently right next to each other, a large one in the middle... More

The water is re-filled fresh every day with naturally hot water. Facilities (including changing rooms) seem to be unchanged since communist times which makes for a fun, different experience - but in January it is damned cold out of the water! We spent at least an hour in the water trying to work up the courage to get out!

I've been there a few times, and I've enjoyed it greatly. But it is smelly, it is full of Germans and it is cold-war Soviet quality! It reminded me quite a lot of the swimming baths I used to go to in London when I was at school - they were from the '50s. It's like a Soviet immersion experience,... More

You can smell the pool before you see it. When you do see it the slightly yellow cloudy water added to the smell could be off-putting but open your mind and and relax. The water is beautifully warm and leaves your skin really soft afterwards. We did baulk a bit at the price which, by Bulgarian standards does seem a... More

An interesting experience but overpriced. The water cures all known diseases according to the advertisements, including some that are unknown to science.
