The apartment is as you would expect, not luxury but completely adequate for 1 to 4 people if you are happy to use the put up bed. The owner was a pleasure to deal with, with quick responses to emails and was very helpful. He also refunded my deposit very quickly.
The complex is nice and clean and when I went in September was very quiet due to it being at the very end of the season, I liked this but some might like to go more in peak season to have more atmosphere. In Sunny beach it was also very quiet and there was a lack of atmosphere to be honest, and also there were a lot of places such as bars and shops shutting down for the winter in September.
I payed 6 Leva (about £2.50) for 5 days wifi at the compex reception which I thought was very good value and I never got any lag so guess its a good signal!
I find that in this area the people that will try to rip you off is the taxi drivers, they will usually say 20 Leva minimum and this is way too much, I found the best thing to do at the end of an evening is just tell them you only have 10 Leva left, they will then treat you like they have done you a favour but that is their way and at least you havent been ripped off. I walked into Sunny beach from the apartment and it took me an hour to get the main strip there. The apartment complex is on the main road and there is a bus stop just across the road and the bus charge was 1.20 Leva (about 50 pence) into Sunny beach.
On the whole I felt safe in Sunny beach but if anyone, especially women approach you keep a firm hand on your wallett, I found there to be a strong gypsy element there and I did not trust them any further than I could throw them, this is not speculation, I was approached by 3 women offering me oral sex and they cornered me and had their hands all over me, and especially round the pocket where my wallett was, I would say be stern, even shout Militzia (police in russian) if they wont take no for an answer! It really was not a pleasant experience and im not a little guy!
Well I hope this has helped anyone looking at going to Bulgaria, if you have any questions please feel free to ask and I would be happy to help.
