Duni is probably the best resort for a family holiday with children on Bulgarian sea cost. It is not so over-crowded like the other sea resorts in Bulgaria and it offers combination of green nature with beautiful spacious sand beach, swimming pools, water slides, tennis courts, amphitheater with lovely animation program etc.
The sea beach is large, with very fine sand and shallow water.
Duni is a closed all inclusive resort - and it makes it perfect for family with kids. The teenagers can be free to exercise various activities within this closed resort (it's secure) and they can consume food or drinks freely.
The resort consist of a huge green park, holiday village - with houses and streets, three 4-star hotels and one 5-star hotel.
Belleville Hotel would be probably one of the best choice, but it doesn't have enough apartments for families and the majority of the rooms are for 2 people only - hence you must be very lucky if you manage to get a family apartment in Belleville (they are lovely).
Normally we don't repeat a summer holiday in same place - but with this hotel we made an exception. The thing is that every year the vacation in this resort might be different. Last year (2016) they opened a new Aqua-park with additional swimming pools and water slides - very close to the all-inclusive restaurant "Sozopol" and close to Belleville hotel. The Italian restaurant is in Belleville hotel itself. The traditional Bulgarian restaurant "Mechana" is also close - it's above the restaurant "Sozopol" and the Wunder-bar. The amphitheater is just next to Belleville hotel - hence this hotel has the best location for quickly going to the room late in the evening, after the animation program has finished, or from the disco in the Wunder-bar or the new bar at the Aqua-park.
All other hotels in Duni are too far from these attractions... Pelican hotel is probably 1-2 km away from the amphitheater and Aqua-park. However, if you prefer tranquility and green surrounding, then you might find Pelican a good option. If you prefer a hotel with sea view and easy access directly on the sand beach then Marina Beach hotel might be better.
We have been in Holiday village house before, but the standard of the houses cannot compare with the one in the hotels - and the price is similar.
This year (2017) we plan to go again and stay in the 5-star Marina Royal Palace. I hope we will enjoy the summer holiday again.

We had another good vacation in Duni. We had been before (3 years ago) and we're glad to be back again. The hotel is nice and is very close to open air restaurant (named Sozopol), amphitheater, aqua park and the beach. Plenty of food and drinks and pretty good (not fancy, but safe to eat and sometimes tasty enough). Good shows in the evening in amphitheater, mini aqua park is fun (I used to use it before lunch and dinner) and the beach is great (long and sandy; the water bottom is sandy and is not steep). You could also walk or run on the green alleys or choose to play tennis. We particularly liked the bar in the evening at Pelikan hotel. What can I say, for the valued payed the complex is offering plenty of facilities.
And...bonus: you can choose to make a trip nearby in Sozopol (the old city) - very nice old houses made by stone and wood on sea shore.

I was with the family at the of August 2016 for 7 nights.
It was perfect for the kid, I've choose the hotel because of the water slides.
We arrived by car just before 4:00pm, the checking was really fast and people from the reception desk were really OK and helpful (the tell us the resort rules).
Then we enter to the room, here was an unpleasant surprise: there was no hygienic paper, no soap, no shampoo... nothing except the towels.
I was going to the reception to ask for paper and soap, few minutes later they bring only the paper, no soap :) ; and we didn't get any soap for the entire period.

That was the only unpleasant thing; because of taht I rate it as 4* and not 5.

What else should be said:
Food - there is nothing special, but it is really OK.
Drink- I use to drink beer and wine. Beer was OK. Related to the wine I could drink only the red one (dry); there were also withe and rose, but both were just too sweet.
The water slides are perfect, my kid liked them a lot.
Sunbeds: there are plenty on the pool and on the beach.
To mention that there is free wifi only to the lobby. during the evening it is not working so well - too many devices connected on one router.

This hotel is a part of one resort that includes other 2 hotels (Marina Beach and Pelican), and a lot of villas; so there a huge garden.
Notices some tennis courts, but never used.

I was glad, that we chose this particular hotel when we stayed at Duni Royal Resort. It was close to main resort attractions (restautant, amphitheatre, aquapark). The price was reasonable and the service was good. The only thing I disliked was toll wi-fi.

Big nice rooms with view to the forest. Not that far away from beach but really quiet. Very nice and friendly staff. All-inclusive type with everything you can think of. No wi-fi internet and not enough soap or shower-gel so bring some of your own. Don`t take beach towels though - they give you for free. Plenty of pulls and a brand new aquapark. The beach is the best in the country.

Room Tip: High-storey with forest view.
