We had a wonderful family holiday here. Stayed for 1 week, in mid June. First days the hotel was only half full, after that it was fully booked. Very good amenities for children, young or even teens, good water park, good kids club. Everything very clean, spotless even, and we always saw the cleaning personnel going round the hotel, gardens and pools. The beach is a little small, but we only went there for swimming and playing and preferred to return to the pools for sunbeds. The food was very tasty and varied, and the main dishes never repeated in those 7 days. Only one issue, maybe the fish dishes should be better cooked, being a sea-side hotel. We will probably return here, because all of us had an excellent time, relaxing for the adults and entertaining for the 8 years old daughter.
Stayed here on a few recommendations from people I new but my family and I were very disappointed. The food was of a very low standard, served cold with all staff very moody and ill mannered. The hotel was kept very clean and we'll maintained though. The best part of our stay was the water slides. Each night we spent Money on a taxi to sunny beach to a restaurant we had visited the previous year which doubled our spending money. I won't be recommending the hotel to anybody. Much to be improved I'm afraid.
We visited sol nessebar mare on the 3rd of June for 2 weeks so many slides and attractions for the children and the big kids in us.....I went on the blue slide that goes down and then up came off it side ways and smashed my leg on the perspex plastic that was on the side of the slide to stop the water from going over the edge we must have been going at around 50mph when I hit my leg....the lifeguards came over managed to get me out of the pool at the bottom at this time I couldn't move my leg I thought I had broken it one went off and got a 1st aid box which looked like it had seen better days there were no decent bandages in it nor any wipes and what was my biggest concern was the life guard had NO GLOVES ON whilst cleaning my wound there was no real concern nor did they stop the slides....so when I was at the bottom in complete agony there were still people coming down the slide and trying to avoid hitting into me....
Just arrived home after a week here with my 4 year old. First impressions weren't great......after travelling since 1.30am, Coach dropped us off and joined the mile long queue at reception. One of the receptionists kept walking off on the phone leaving her colleague to deal with the ever increasing queue. Once at the front I was told check in wasn't until 2 - then I was ignored.....just arrived and haven't a clue!! Eventually the other receptionist came back and i asked could we not have our bands, leave our luggage etc, she eventually checked our reservation and turned out the room was available. Rooms were nice and pleasant - were were at the front of the hotel above the reception so could hear the coaches pulling up, but not an issue as we weren't on holiday to sit in our room. Plenty of sun beds. Does say that you can't reserve your pool beds, however everyone does!! My little boy did try the kids club but came out crying - think it was more of a language barrier as there weren't many English speaking guests when we were there. Entertainment guys come round asking if you want to join in, when you decline they can be rude or tell me just to take my kid to kids club - I was on holiday to spend time with him not for a full action packed activity holiday. Evening shows we only went to 2 of them and they were pleasant enough. Believe some of the nights were a bit 'risky' for children. Loved the water slides, cater for all ages and swimming abilities with life guards present. Refreshments can be obtained from many places - hotdogs, doughnuts, pretzels, sandwiches, ice cream, drinks. The complex itself is huge and really nice. A few extras on the site you need to pay for but it's not expensive - room safe, mini golf, go karts etc. If you want to use the hotel pool towels you need to ask at reception for the cards as we weren't given them at check in. So the biggest let down for me - and it's personal preference was the food!! We aren't fussy eaters, but we were struggling. There is always fresh salads etc but they are always in an oil. My son loves pasta and pizza but they weren't nice at all. watch out as chicken wasn't cooked one evening and fish soup is oozing in bones. We ended up filling up on the sandwiches that were brought out to the lobby bar at 10pm!! I was told that the food at the Palace next door was a lot nicer and worth spending a bit more to stay there. There is an Italian at the palace you can visit once week via a reservation at the place reception. All in all the place was lovely, plenty to do but the food is a big disappointment.
We spent £2600 taking our 2 eldest grandkids here at the end of May, the hotel building itself was very nice, but that's the only good thing I have to say about the place, The staff were rude as were most of the other guests, we had an incident with one of the kids when he came down one of the water slides and went under the water, despite there being 2 life guards sat next to the pool my wife had to jump in and rescue him. The food; where do I start, I often get ridiculed for my cooking, but the lukewarm slop we were served up every day makes mine taste like it was cooked by a top chef. The children ended up eating dried pasta all week as there was very little choice for them, The beds were very uncomfortable, the pillows were about a foot thick so it was impossible to get a decent sleep. The kids club was also a huge let down, my wife took our 5year old granddaughter, once, it was very badly organised there wasn't enough staff and those that were there didn't seem very interested. Total waste of money.
It’s been 8 years since we last visited Bulgaria so we knew there would be significant changes. We booked to stay in one of the quieter resorts of Nessebar. We arrived at the resort in the early hours of the morning and were shown to our 2 family rooms. These were spacious enough for 3 people and had 3 decent size beds. There was also a TV which unfortunately did not have any English channels but we were on holiday so really did not require a TV. The wardrobes were standard with Coat Hangers provided and the bathroom facilities were good having a bath/shower and hairdryer. The rooms were cleaned every other day and fresh towels provided. The main restaurant in our hotel Sol Nessebar Mare was a good size and the food was of excellent variety. Breakfast consisted of Meats/Cheeses, Fresh Fruit, a selection of English breakfast, Pastries/cakes/bread, and hot plates that cooked fresh Eggs and pancakes. Tea/Coffee and fresh juices were available as self-service. Lunch was lots of fresh salad, cheese/pate/breads and a large range of hot food always including chicken/pork/fish and beef. Evening meals were more of the same but always lots to choose from. The fresh seafood of Langoustine and mussels always went down well as did the huge variety of cakes. As part of the Mare hotel was the waterpark located outside the hotel. There were about 7 slides of all sizes which I and my nieces ventured on daily. Great fun but scary when you don’t like heights or water! There were also additional outdoor swimming pools located outside the 3 hotels on the complex. You could use any of the pools and as well as any of the snack areas. Pool Towels were provided daily. In addition to the main swimming pools there was a smaller fresh water pool which was only ankle deep for the smaller kids. This contained water fountains and to be totally honest the water was not the cleanest but the kids loved it. There were also a number of parks throughout the resort for the younger children to occupy themselves. The first couple of days the weather was cold and damp so we used the hotels indoor pool situation in the sister hotel The Palace. The pool was warm with a Jacuzzi section and an instructor taking Water aerobics. We travelled into Sunny Beach on the colder days taking the bus option outside the hotel. This cost pennies for 6 of us to travel. Sunny Beach is a bit like Blackpool with sun. It was full of bars, restaurants and a huge variety of shops. Personally I preferred the quieter and more scenic Nessebar.
Room was clean , the pools for the children was amazing , the staff spoke very little English and found some of them quite rude more the bar staff than anything , when we arrived they opened the restaurant as it was the early hours of the morning , they shouldn't have bothered as there was no choice just lots of cheese 🧀 and the drinks machine wasn't turned on , the all inclusive was shocking I'm not a fussy eater but the food was discussing and seemed to be much the same at every meal , I went with my 2 grandchildren who ate ceareal at breakfast , dinner , and tea and maybe a bit of pasta , the drinks machaine was not working all the time is all is I can say about the food is it was disscusting and wasn't even warm , the poll was amazing for the children but once it got to 6-7 o'clock they had different kinds of water activities in the pool that had to be paid for which could be quite costly , the children's entertainment was not bad as the animation team worked hard with the entertainment, there was a lady called varni who did children's tattoos, and braids , sand pic , painting who was very good with the children , I bought the children a popcorn at the hotel and the gentlemen there wouldn't even give me a empty box to split the popcorn he wanted paying for a empty box , I've only given this hotel a 3 because of the pools for the children as most other things were poor
Incredible animation team - all the shows were really great and truly entertaining. The stage is very professionally made - great lighting, great sound. The animation team gave their best to make us feel good. Food was also on a very high level and the restaurant staff was very friendly and polite. The room was huge and cleaned regularly. It was our third visit and we'll keep coming back because it's worth it! Highly recommend the place to anyone looking to spend some quality vacation time with their family! :)

Stayed here the last week of may. One of the first people to stay here after opening the day before we arrived. The staff can hardly speak any English and are very rude. The cleaners never actually clean your room or change your bedding only make the bed. Or dont change your towels. The food every day was never hot. Every morning i had to put my food through the toaster just for it to be hot. And was the same food every day! Nothing around the hotel to see or do. Apart from the sea taxi that took you to old nessebar and saw dolphin out sea. The entertainment was appauling. Not appropriate for children in any way shape or form. They were half naked all the time dancing on chairs showing everyone their bits. Was shocking!
