We arrived late afternoon ,17th sept check-in was very fast . we had a good room on the 6th floor overlooking the palace pool . we could see that the resort was running down at the end of the season. we walked and got the bus into the old town of nessebar . a few times and we did eat out a few times , as we did need a change from the hotel food . we were A.I. AND ON THE FIRST NIGHT THE LOBBY BAR RUN OUT OF VODKA they did find some more vodka for the next nights , but on the last night we were their they run out of red wine , the staff were very friendly and hard working . a few time at dinner the food was not cooked just seared on the outside . plenty of salads and sweets .
Just back from a week's holiday with a friend. Cons - Room 104. How they can sell this room to holiday makers is beyond me. View is just a big tree!!!! See photo provided. I've managed a hotel and would be embarrassed to sell the room. Cut the tree down!!!!! We got a new room after a lot of getting nowhere with reception, we eventually involved our rep, and it was lovely! Reception staff not very pleasant or helpful. A smile and a welcoming attitude goes a long way. Pillows in bedroom are terrible. Even with 2 it was still flat!!!! The coffee was rank!! Pros - everything else!!! Cleaner was wonderful, very friendly and jolly (reception staff take note!!!). A well deserved tip was left. Rooms a great size. Yes, they could do with updating, but it's a large hotel so it could take time. It didn't bother me at all and it was spotless!!! Wonderful, clean and inviting pool with great sunbeds. Food always good (although chicken not cooked sometimes). A great variety which we always enjoyed. Great shop which was cheaper than anywhere else. This was a great hotel near the stunning old town of Nessebar. A visit to Old Nessebar is a must and take the water taxi - a wonderful way to see the coast and the harbour. I found the shop owners pushy and rude but i understand it's a different culture so maybe they are just not taught manners. Sunny Beach is a must NOT! Seedy and uncomfortable place. But if you like the clubbing, sex and drinking scene go for it!! But as a review for this hotel at the end of the season - yes, a lot of the facilities were sadly closed, but i loved it anyway and would go back in a heartbeat!!! Just as long as i didn't get room 104!!!!!
Just got back from this hotel & I certainly won't be going back! On arrival we were told that we could use any of the bars , sun beds & swimming pools at any of the 3 hotels on sight as long as you eat at your own hotel. On the first night we went for a drink in the sister hotel sol nessebar beach . The woman on the bar was so rude and practically threw us out ! Shouting that we shouldn't be in their. Another night the tall bar man in the tapas bar at our hotel started shouting at other guests saying they hadn't ordered the right drinks .so rude . The rooms was OK although a little dated . The food was not brilliant but we always found something for our taste buds. But it wasn't very warm . There was no entertainment for our age group. Just for children. Was well disappointed.
We've just returned from a 1-week all-inclusive at Sol Nessebar Bay, arriving 17th September (this point is key!). We needn't have worried about the only things other reviewers had mentioned: i.e. no spare loungers, queues for the buffets, screaming kids rampaging about - as we went just AFTER the kids had gone back to school, towards the END of the season! The hotel & grounds were kept spotlessly clean, there were PLENTY of sun loungers at any time of day, the really wide range of hot & cold foods at every meal were endlessly replenished, with no queues, and plenty of variety, the rooms were cleaned quickly & well, and the STAFF were incredibly hard-working, polite and friendly - another tip: just by trying to say 'please' or 'thankyou' in Bulgarian really goes a long way & is appreciated with smiles!! Special mentions to the catering staff in providing such a wide choice & good standard of food & cleanliness of the restaurants; to the Animations Team who provided a great range of activities for adults to join in with (inc. archery, rifle shooting, darts, boules, aqua-fit, sports, etc.....), as well as nightly shows, and who were always positive, smiling & friendly, and the pool bar staff, making up cocktails & acknowledging our attempts at Bulgarian! The whole resort is like a lovely little village to wander around, with a choice of snack bars, bars & restaurants, pools, wooded terraces, and beach terraces - plus tennis, volleyball & football pitches too. The beach is just down the end of the sloping path - and there's even a water taxi on the pier to take you direct to Nessebar Old Town too, which costs 10 lev (about £5) per person, one-way. We had the whole boat to ourselves one day! The beach just to the right of the resort is a little wider & sandier - but you'll need to pay for loungers / drinks there. There is also a bus stop 5 mins up the road from the front of the hotel which takes you direct to Nessebar New & Old Towns, and Sunny Beach, for only 1.3 Lev (about 60p) one-way. If you want a family holiday - take the kids in the school hols in the main season, when all the kids clubs, water slides etc are open. If you have no kids & want peace & quiet - book from mid-September!! All in all we had an absolutely GREAT time, and would heartily recommend it to anyone for a fabulous, low-cost, all-inclusive relaxing holiday!! We'll be back!! :-)
My partner and I just returned from a week away today. I'll start with the negatives as the positives do outweigh them. 1) the fridge in our room didn't work, not the end of the world but not being able to have a cold drink first thing was a pain in the heat. 2) at the beach, after our first day, the ice cream bar and the panini bar stopped opening. 3) the lunch time snacks stopped coming at the bay bar after the second day apart from muffins. 4) the hotdog bar at the mare was never open. 5) we were playing pool and every time the white ball was pot, it got jammed. I spoke to the bar next to it and he didn't seem to interested in helping what so ever. 6) the hairdryer in the rooms are pretty rubbish if you have long/thick hair 7) the beds on the small all inc get taken VERY early Positives 1) the rooms are the biggest I've stayed in in Europe A) there is a bath B) the bed is the comfiest I've slept in, in a hotel C) the maid does an amazing job day in day out D) the views are fantastic (this would differ depending on your room number, as I did see some street facing) 2) the food was fantastic, every day was something different for dinner, constantly being refilled and something for everyone. My very fussy other half never went hungry. 3) the food at the German bar was amazing, I miss the pretzels already. 4) you never go hungry or thirsty, the cocktails are gorgeous. 5) the bar man at the bay pool bar is great! 6) the evening entertainment was brilliant! 7) the prices in the hotel shop is very reasonable 8) the water park is fantastic fun 9the pools are great, always cleaned daily and very refreshing. Over all, a throughly enjoyable stay just a few niggles. Would I stay again? Yes, but I'd try and go earlier in the season to benefit from all food areas although you are still spoilt for choice it would be nice to have a wider variety during the day and not have to leave the beach when hunger starts to strike come 1 or 2pm. We will certainly return as a family in the future as there is so much (or as little as the case may be) for children and adults alike. Thank you for a great stay
This hotel is a great place for familly time, lot of attractions for kids, aquapark, room of games, wonderful mini club. Food is 4/5, lot of fresh vegetables and fruits but nothing for breakfast for ppl on gluten -free diet (i mean bread..). Generally speaking really good place for ppl with kids, if you look for a calm and quiet place dont chose this hotel!
Great place, good food clean but dated decor. Rooms were cleaned every day. Staff friendly, plenty to do and plenty around the hotel too. Nessebar old town just 5mins on the bus and a lovely place to visit, nessebar bay just 10mins on the bus and sunny beach just 20 mins on the bus so there's plenty to do. Everything is still very affordable (food and drink). Would definitely recommend and we will be going back next year. Great value hotel with swimming pools, slides and beach. What more can you ask for.
We have just got back from a 2 week family holiday. We holidayed this year in a large group of 4 families with children ranging in ages from 5-19 years old. Firstly, the reception area is very basic and needs updating, the reception staff are polite and helpful, but there is a language barrier. The rooms are a decent size and clean but again need updating. The reason for this review is mainly to warn others that this all-inclusive hotel boasts many different restaurants - but these are not restaurants, they are food stations were you can get different types of food throughout the day, but they are not restaurants where you can sit and be served your meal. In fact, even the much lauded 5* Italian restaurant which has to be pre-booked is still only a buffet service, where you have to get your own food and drink! The food is mainly all buffet style - the food is good, but choice is limited and it becomes very repetitive. Each hotel has its own pools and bars, which all are supposed to be able to use, but you are unable to sit on sun loungers at the other hotels and your blue wrist band means you are unable to use other bars, other than the self service ones. The hotel also turns all lights off at midnight, even if you are sitting and chatting! The pools are clean and large, but the floor around them becomes dangerously slippery and we witnessed many children and adults falling over, which is obviously potentially very dangerous. The pool was also blooming freezing! Keep moving! The entertainment team, however, are fantastic and work tirelessly to entertain the children and adults alike. There is a good mix of day time activities mainly based around the pool. There is also the nightly kids disco and evening show, which is usually cheesy but entertaining! In a nut shell, this hotel could be fantastic. It is set in a good location, in each reach of the beautiful Nessebar old town and sunny beach. It has a nice range of bars and restaurants in easy walking distance, if you become bored with the buffet. It is not expensive to eat out, so well worth a visit. This hotel needs a refit to update it, but of course, it will then become more expensive, so visit whilst it is still reasonably priced.
We came back about 4 hours ago!! As this was my first holiday, child free in 20 years, I did not know what to expect. The resort has a great family atmosphere, but as a couple this did not put us off as there was plenty for us to do also. At times the food was a little off warm, but as all tastes were catered for, it is what you should expect with an All-inclusive basis. The choice of food at the different bars throughout the day did not leave you going hungry and with drinks dispensers at easy locations, going on a pub crawl throughout the whole resort was very easy to do. We had the run of all the facilities on site, which was covered over 3 hotels, abundance of swimming pools and the beach was within the grounds also. In all a fantastic resort and well worth a visit.
We have just got back from a brilliant holiday. Me, my wife and 8 year old daughter stayed at Bay hotel from 05 to 07 of September 2016 at room 452 . The room was clean and comfortable with impressive sea view, food was varied, healthy and delicious. All 3 hotels are side by side and we had access to each pool. Plenty of sunbeds for all at each of the pools. Large variety of water slides and entertainment for all ages. The lifeguards and the pool manager were always around to ensure the safety of tourists and children so I really appreciate their efforts. The pool water was always clean & clear. The beach was right on our doorstep and beautiful. Staff were extremely friendly. A great holiday which we would recommend to anyone.
