“Watch Out”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2010

Me and 9 other friends stayed at this hotel in June and did not really enjoy this experience. We are not really a fussy bunch but dont like being ripped off. On arrival we were charged a 50 leva deposit (£25) which we were not informed about. A girl who was staying with us got some hair dye on her sheet and they tried to charge her 65 lev for this, so she took the sheet to the dry cleaners and got it dry cleaned for 6 lev, then on the final day the cleaners brought the sheet to the reception to try and find the stain and could not find it, so DRAGGED it out to the sun and found a small mark, they then refused to give her back her full deposit and charged her a further 35 leve!!! We were also told it would be an 18-30s place but it is DEFINATELY not! so many oldies there! The air conditioning and fridge first appeared to be not workin, but after a few days we realised we had to flick the switch on the fuse box and have the balcony door closed for the air con to work and the fridge just needs to be turned up from zero! lol. It is very clean, the staff are not very friendly and do not speak much English but seem trustworthy. Hotel wasn't the best but holiday was amazing, Sunny Beach is a great place for all types of people, and if your looking for a young peoples hotel I would highly recommend the hotel Diamond, were other friends of ours stayed, where we spent alot of our time, with a good atmosphere and a 24hr bar! Despite some bad reviews from the hotel, all in all was a great holiday!

we read some reviews of this hotel after we booked our trip, and we were a bit scared off of all the bad comments.
but it was all pretty ok. we knew about the deposit you have to pay,that's a job of your travel agency should say to you before you leave. cleaning ladies came every day in your room to clean your room. swimming pool was ok, breakfast was ok (there was a fair amount of different food like bread,sausages etc. and also fruit and cereals) only our airco didn't work that well. shower was good too. overall a good experience at this hotel!

me and my chap stay there for one week. on arrival we were to we had to pay a deposit of 50 lava (£25) EACH. no one told us about this. so we checked our room for previous damage. there were some so we marked every thing down, told the hotel and our rep. we also took photos, so we would not be blamed. one couple got charged 20 lava (£10) for a to for a towel that had red hair dye on it, the couple had blonde and grey hair. the dye must of been on the towel when put in the room. but they still got charged and took it of there deposit.

The location is fine. It's a little too far away from the flower-street when you're walking home at night, but it's close to the beach and in nice surroundings. The first impression was a little bad, because we didn't know that we were supposed to pay a deposit when we checked in and we had also been located in rooms with people we weren't supposed to sleep with, but I don't know if that was the travel-agecy's fault or the hotel's. The bartenders and one of the girls in the reception were great, but most of the staff didn't know any english at all and gave us the wrong keys aaaall the time. One time we had to write it down on a piece of paper before he got the right one. And the aircondition did not work at all!! We tried and tried and then we went to the reception to ask for help and a large man with no english skills came up and pushed one button and then looked snobby at us and went down again. The only problem was that we had pushed that button ourselves several times and yes, it turned on the aircondition, but only for a minute. But the ignorant man never got to see that because he just left and didn't know any english. We also had an episode with a girl who was ill and asked the receptionist for help to get to her friends' room, which she knew the number of, but was to ill to find and the staff only followed her up to her own room again and again even though she was alone in there and needed her friends in the other room. She ended up passing out in the hall because someone had put something in her drink and some of the other guests found her. So that was a really bad experience. Some things were okay though. The food was fine. The breakfast was a little too greasy for my taste but the things we tried from the menu were good. And the cleaning staff were great. They cleaned up our rooms every day and switched the towels every other day I think. And the rooms look nice and also the hall with the glass-walls lookes great.
My conclusion is that the hotel looks great, but the service is missing A LOT, except from the bar-staff. I'm deffinetly not gonna be staying there again.

We stayed for a week in the hotel and it was quite worth the money. The hotel is located close to the centre of sunny beach, pedestrian area and the promenade but alread in the peaceful area.. The beach is in 5-7 min walking distance. The hotel is new, all new furnitures and materials, we had a balcony, too. I was not too satisfied with the quality of the cleaning, towels got changes only once, no vacuum cleaning. The bathroom is also new, the only thing I did not like is that the shower is not in a cabine but has a curtain. We only had breakfast, which is a buffet - you don't need to stand in a queue as it is a mid-size hotel, so we had relaxed breakfasts. Staff friendliness varies, for some of them it really hurts to work. They don't English too well. We had to give a deposit in the beginning (25 EUR for the two of us, in case we would damage the room) and got it back at the check-out without any problems. The guests are mostly young Skandinavian/ British students and Bulgarian families.
