Hotels

There are many large and luxurious hotels located along the length of Sunny Beach. Some of the grander ones I noticed located in the northern area of the beach were

 

Victoria Palace (5 star)

Marvel (4 star)

St Helena Resort (Helena Sands Hotel/Helena Park Hotel both 5 Star)

In general I would advise not to stay in a hotel with less that 3 stars, anything less and you really take a chance with regard the quality and location. I have only stayed in two hotels within Sunny Beach and depending what you are use to keep this in mind with regard my comments below. I have only stayed in two hotels within Sunny Beach they were

Slavyanski Hotel

Hotel Orpheus

 

 

Slavyanski (3 star+)

Rooms: 200+

Floors : 12

Lifts: 1

Facilities: Standard/Superior rooms with WC, fridge, TV, telephone,balcony, Superior rooms have air-conditioning. Medium sized private swimming with pool bar, childs pool, lobby bar, Safety deposit boxes (small charge per day), restaurant, exchange burea.

 

One of the many large hotels located along the beach front, the hotel  (200+ rooms) is almost directly on the beach with only the hotel’s swimming pool and main pedestrian promenade in between. Service and staff were pretty good (some employees more friendly than others but nothing unusual there). The hotel has an old section and new section, I would recommend paying the extra and staying in the new section (superior rooms are located in this section), make sure to ask for a room facing the sea so you have an excellent view of the beach/sea/pool. The superior room is long and narrow and consisted of a bedroom containing a double bed, a cot we specially asked for, wardrobe, chest of drawers, on-suite WC and shower. The bedroom leads out onto a balcony through a single glass door with a fantastic view of the sea/beach/pool. The swimming pool is shared between the Slavyanski and Hotel Bellevue, is a fair size and unheated. Sun loungers are available at the poolside (for a small fee I think). The hotel reception is large and spacious with a bar and soft sofas so you can relax before deciding what to do next. Breakfast/food is served in a restaurant behind reception. It contains a small bar with tables arranged across split levels. The one side of the room is completely windows, looking out onto the poolside. Doors lead out to an external eating area (wooden bench’s) near the pool, where food and drink can be taken. The only downside I found eating outside the hotel was, depending what time of year there tend’s to be some wasps hanging about interested in your food. The breakfasts are help yourself and included as part of a package holiday. Typical food on offer was

 

Sliced Bread (toaster available)

Sliced cold meat

Cereal (Corn flakes, Muesli)

Frankfurter sausages

Hard boiled eggs

Various fruit (apples, melon slices, bananas, cucumber, tomatos)

Various cheese’s.

Quason, crepes

Various jams

 

 


Hotel Orpheus (3 star++)

Rooms: 27

Floors: 3

Lifts:1

Facilities: Single, double or family rooms with Sat TV, Minibar, air-conditioning, Telephone, WC/Shower, Balcony. Small private swimming pool with jacuzzi, poolside bar, Safety deposit boxes (small charge per day), restaurant.

 

The Hotel Orpheus is much smaller than the Slavyanski. This makes it more charming and personal. It is also very much newer, built with very greek archtectural appearance helping to make it look very luxurious. The Hotel is located behind the Slavyanski/Bellevue, with the Victoria also in front of it there are no views of the beach/sea. Service and staff were excellent, spoken english was limited, we were understood for the basic requests.  We stayed in a family room which had a living room and separate bedroom. Both rooms were a fair size each leading out onto a balcony containing a table and chairs. The bedroom had a double bed with two single sofa style seats, single wardrobe, chest of drawers, and an on-suite WC with bath and shower. The livingroom had a two-seater sofa and single chair, a single bed (which we moved into the bedroom during our stay), a WC, double wardrobe. Both rooms had a 21inch colour TV.

The swimming pool is located at one side of the Hotel with a small garden. There is a pool side bar, with sun-loungers spread around the one side. Blow up animals were floating around in the pool while were there. The restaurant is located on the ground to the rear of the building overlooking the garden and pool. There is a small bar with very limited seating, therefore drinking tends to take place at a table or in the garden. The breakfasts are help yourself and included as part of a package holiday. Typical food on offer was

 

Sliced Bread (toaster available)

Sliced cold meat

Cereal (Corn flakes, Muesli)

Various fruit (apples, melon slices, bananas, cucumber, tomatos)

Various cheese’s.

Quason, crepes

Various jams
