An extremely shifty bellboy called Boyan showed me "how to lock the safe" since the instructions were in Bulgarian only. I followed his instructions to the letter. Two days later I found that my wallet containing cash, credit and debit cards was missing.

Particularly obnoxious w

I was quite sceptical when I arrived having read the reviews but I was pleasantly surprised. Our room wasn't ready when we arrived so we had lunch and when we returned we had our bags carried to our rooms. We had a pool view and the kids had a road view which they were not fussed

I decided to give this place the benefit of the doubt seeing as loads of reviews said they were skeptical at first but were glad they went. I don’t know if these people were
A) blind
B) very blind
C) very bloody blind
Still trying to figure that one out.

Having stayed in Bulgaria before in a 5 star hotel, we were expecting something close. I’m afraid that the Hotel did not quite meet our expectations. I read the reviews before we left, and I was a little apprehensive, but as we arrived the hotel looked very nice. When we entered

Dear mcpoeman, First of all we would like to thank you for taking the time to comment and rate our hotel and you stay among us.The standard hour for the accommodation of the guests is after 14:00 (worldwide and not just in Madara Smartline hotels) Regarding the issues that you pointed out about the cleaning of the rooms, our housekeeping department have to follow a strict and very busy schedule, especially during the high season, every minutes are very precious for our teams Concerning the food, the most part of the raw materials that we used in our restaurant are coming from local suppliers and its follow a strict qualitative charter. Because for us the products that we served to our guests need to be the best in terms of quality, taste and environmental friendly. Abou situacion of reserving seats at the pool, this goes against our hotel policy. We invite all our guests without exception to respect this rule in order to offer to all the best comfort and service possible. Unfortunately, during your stay you may have met some of our guests who did not pay attention to the various written warnings posted around the pool. Finally, for the lunch in our hotel we offer to our guests the possibility to eat at restaurant, the BBQ and also the snack bar .As the first Bulgarian hotel chain we always try to provide to our guests the best services and accommodation, if you will visit us again in the future ask to meet us personally to be sure that everything during you stay will be fine.

what is the beach like ? are the beds included ? is there a all inclusive bar ?
The beach is pretty close and very nice and clean. The water was very clear during my stay. Beds on the beach are not included.. they cost around 10 leva each. Regarding the drinks there is an all inclusive bar at the hotel, but not at the beach.

Hi, me and my fiancé are coming on Tuesday for a week and wondered if anyone could answer a few questions after reading the reviews.. 1) What drinks are available on the all inclusive? 2) We quite like going out on an evening and sitting outside a bar with a bit of entertainment on. Any recommendations for bars with singers etc? 3) What’s the food like? What are the breakfast options? 4) Do you really have to get up at 6:00am to get a sun longer? 5) Do they have music on round the pool so you can just relax with a drink all day? Many thanks, Alex

"Some overlook pool, mine overlooked the service road and trees"
"The pool rooms are ok, the "park" rooms face the forest, so there's not much to see."
