288 Traveller reviews from Holiday Watchdog
everyone of you are wrong!
"when i went to this place four years ago it was probably the best experience of my life and as like quite a lot of you i was terrified as people on the reviews gave it so much stick, because when i got there and entered the lobby i was amazed and we quickly had a nice cuppa over looking the sea,the activities are beast as there's bowling,the beach, mini golf, the aqua park, numerous pools, the sea, tennis courts, the theater and my favorite jelly fish road(obviously there's more) the food is great especially the pudding! and with short boat rides away there's nessebar which has a great place called uncle Georges and little places on sunny beach, also a little shack called paco's bar 2 minutes walk away, anyone who wants to have fun in the sun will love this place with amazing activities, food, bars, shops and the great hotel, cant wait to go again in 2 months, follow me on twitter ****"

British People Like to moan about nothing.
"Excellent Hotel, Food as Expected and exceptionally clean. As a brit my self i am all to aware of the fact that us brits like to moan. There was nothing to moan about however. No complaints. Friendly Staff. Highly Recommended. Would go back time after time and this is unusual for me, never been to same place twice, i am a regular traveller and this has been the best overall all inclusive i have been on. For those that are thinking of going, dont forget only people that have compaints leave reveiws, those that have a great time dont comment that often. Cleanest Beach been on, not even the offendinf -------- -------- [[fag]] -------- -------- stumps in sight."

"as per my other review.... this hotel was recommended to me an my family, there were 7 of us an nobody from our group enjoyed this holiday, after speaking to many other english people who have been to this resort before, they have said they would not return after this visit....they could not believe the changes to the resort, food, staff, hygiene etc. we arrived on 25 july 2011
for 14 nts, sorry we wasted are money! we encounted many problems
whilst we were there and the staff were useless and didnt want to know , when they realised you were english. there were many nationalities at the hotel but mainly russian, and majority were extremly rude, one man even jammed my daughters arm in the ice cream freezer and then walked away, leaving her screeming in pain.
on this occassion we asked for ice, but after asking four times to no avail, we gave up and went to the reception bar, were we had to take off a t shirt to put the ice in as they refussed to give us a cloth. and as far as the welcome meetings go, what a waste of time.. the reps arent interested as he explained to me, there isnt much he can do, as the english people are only 10% of the guests on this resort, so dont go hoping that you will like this place because it is sub standard and a waste of your time and money. after being there for one day i reproted to my rep and hotel manager that the pool to the hotel had glass and stones in, i was told it would be cleaned that day, it wasnt cleaned for 11 days, and many people ended up spending alot of money at the medical centre due to this proplem. i simply cant stress how bad this hotel is in one review!! if you want a nice holiday, try somewhere else."

what's so bad about it?
"why does nobody like this place it was like a heaven to me. the pools, caffatiria, rooms and reception was all clean and tidy. 3 cleaners came to your room everyday and tidyed it top to bottom. "

Dont Believe What you read!!!
"We have just returned from a 2 week stay in the Royal Park Hotel and as like all of our other 2 stays in the resort had an absolutely amazing time.
Staff were always very courteous and worked extremely hard. The entertainment prog both during the day and in the evening were excellent. Special mention must go to Bojko who is an absolutely amazing animator...he kept us entertained with his version of French bowls and darts every day!!
The room itself was huge we stayed in room 612 a family room and it didnt disappoint, maybe just the smell from the restaurant let it down a little.
The cleaners on the resort work tirelessly day in day out and it is spotless.
The only downside would be the lifts only 4 small lifts to cover a huge hotel and sometimes you could stand for 15mins while it passed your level several times without stopping.
We had taken a group of famuily friends to the resort who also thoroughly enjoyed it!!
Overall a fantasitc hol we are booked to go back in sept and next July.

what are you moaning about
"Just got back from a week at this hotel, dont beleive all that has been previously written, food was as expected plenty of choice maybe not to all western tastes but plenty of it, always cleaning around the complex,some bar staff not as efficient as they could be but this is due to inexperience and not ignorance.
We stayed in room 780 this was a super room with a large balcolny overlooking the pool and the beach the staff cleaned the room daily.
We actually travelled with olympic holidays the rep was excellent turned up on time and was always prepared to stop and chat.
Not many brits at this hotel mainly eastern europeans but we didnt find this a problem.
SOME BRITS REALLY SHOWED THEMSELVES UP BY THEIR LANGUAGE AND BEHAVIOUR so perhaps a lack of brits was a good thing, little things like saying please and thankyou worked well with the staff especially the lads in the pool bar"

An Honest View of Royal Park
"visited royal park in june/july 2008 with my mum, dad and brother. i will first start with the good points, not that there is many! when arriving at about 12.30 in the morning, the first impressions of the hotel where very high. after getting checked in our bags were taken to our rooms which to be honest were the best places to be during your stay. also the hotel itself is a brilliant building, very fancy with brill views of the beach and other areas. that is the end of good points, next the bad!
the badness started on the first morning at breakfast time (the only morning we had breakfast). the restaruant is set out very badly and can be very hard to get a table. next we went to the "welcome meeting" which was a joke as the reps were like watching the chuckle brothers, actually they would probably do a better job. then the meal at night for the first night to be honest wasnt to bad probably just getting used to it! from now to the end was nothing but pure dire. at meals there is massive lines to get food and getting a table is just as bad. everything is fried in oil then reheated and put back out. the barmen are slow and most of cutlery is chipped. during our stay my mum was very ill due to the stinking food. there is nothing round about the hotel no shops or pubs, just the socalled "pub" in the hotel which isnt even irish. also the tv in the room has nothing but bulgarian tv and only BBC news in english which repeats every ten minutes. the hotel is in the middle of nowhere and dont even try to walk to sunny beach. the bus service is useless and most of the taxi drivers are arrogant and will always try to rip you off. the hotel is like being in a prison with guards outside the huge walls and gates. there is also problem of the maids opening your door when trying to have a long lie in the morning, they just open the door and expect that no one is there. also the only thing seperating our balcony from the other was a silly wee fence so remember to lock your balcony door.
please really think before booking this hotel as i promise it will be a disaster!
however you must visit the water park in sunny beach, the only good thing about the holiday apart from the plane touching down in britain!!"
