"This week I went with my family to Bulgaria to have fun. We went to Globus Hotel to entertain our time but through the five days I just heard complains from my family about the very very very very bad food. The Hotel is nice, location is great but there is no sincerity in serving the food it is unhumanitarian. for us to be treated like this.

"Just returned from this joke
Food was sloppy cojoining tissue passed off as chicken
Couldn't even get a look in at breakfast as we were kept up all night by some bloke supposed to be live entertainment,sounded more like he beat the guitar with a brick as opposed to playing it,didn't even know the words to songs he was trying to sing.
Emailed Balkan in London an got a call from someone on the room phone and they suggested we move to a room on other side of hotel.....above a club so how would that help with noise
She also asked if we could go back and try the restaurant once more to see if we had chose a bad menus day first time but we went in and immediately left?every other time we had to eat out.
We never heard from her again.....
On the day we left we were speakin to a guy at the bar and he asked if we liked the food,when we laughed he also said it was the worst he had ever had.he then called on the bar staff and said to him the food here is crap isn't it???
Bar staff reply was,and I quote "hahaha no the food is fantastic......for your dogs"
I replied,well mate you can't think much of your pets if you would feed them that stuff.
I will be claiming compensation as we have returned home with severe chest infections and my face has broken out with open sores.
My doctor almost collapsed in a heap when he heard where I had been and was most anxious to find out what we had eaten. I am now on 8 antibiotics a day an my wife's on 10 to try and get us well again
I've lost almost a stone and a half over the past week.
My advice is stay the hell away if you value your health in the slightest
The one thing this place has going for it is the weather but it's not worth dying for
Will never ever return to this hole

"My partner and i stopped at the globus sept 2011. we found the hotel about average more 2 to 3 star. On arrival in middle of night after check in had to wait to be shown to room as usual a con to obtain tips. After a sleep decided to have a shower only to be flooded out shower head faulty, door jammed open, plug blocked, olso no plug in sink, these were repaired after complaint.Then breakfast. [OH MY GOD[ Absolute slop the only thing edible was scrambled egg. the fruit resembled mashed potatoes bruised and poured from dish to dish. At dinner soup tasted like salty TCP made out of leftover meat from the night before. the tablecloths dirty, cutlery greasy, waiters dressed in dirty clothes, juices watered down, milk tasted like yogurt, MY ADVICE GO ROOM ONLY, TAKE YOUR OWN KETTLE, EAT OUT ITS VERY CHEAP WITH GOOD RESTERAUNTS. PLEASE DO NOT USE THIS RESTERAUNT, I WOULD NOT EVEN ALLOW MY DOG IN THERE [ YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED]"

"We stayed at the Globus in September, The weather was good, room fine but the service from the staff was very poor.
We were half board but had to eat out, there was no service, and the staff took any decent food before putting it out, the crockery was dirty as were the staff , not washing their hands etc.
Balkan Holidays know this, but they are evasive, the rep says the right words but does nothing as do Balkan Holidays complaints manager

They take your money but do not provide a service.
You would be better to go to a piggery to get your food than the Globus"

"My mum and myself only booked our holiday 2 weeks before we went, so got a very reasonable 2 weeks half board. We went with Balkan Holidays, flights were ok.

Got to the hotel mid afternoon, and there were quite a few of us, as we checked in they asked us to wait for a porter to take us up to show us air con etc, we were fine about this but alot of the people were moaning.

The safety deposit box I thought was quite expensive at 78 leva for 2 weeks but was a must.

Our room was on the 5th floor, with a beautiful view out to sea and Nessebar, our room was cleaned daily, with fresh towels, and the beds changed regular.

We were there for the last two weeks of season so although there was noise for bars along the front, there wasn't noise from the pool bar as there was never anyone there. Being on the 5th floor we never really heard any noise when the balcony door was shut. The most noise we got was from doors banging, the doors are operated by key cards so as you go out, you couldn't put the handle down to shut the door quietly. We found we had a fridge in the room which we think must have been the mini bar during the summer season, but was empty, though we found it useful for water.

Mum was lookin forward to being able to use the fitness room for a run on the treadmill, but this was not working, she spoke to the hotel reception on the side of the hotel where the fitness room was and got a yes it was working and a no it wasn't working at the same time from the two on reception, very confusing!

Breakfast was good, having been to Turkey numerous times I was used to cheese and meats and bread for breakfast. There was always plenty of hot food although the fried eggs were quite snotty.

Evening meals left something to be desired, although we never went hungry, some nights were worse than others.

You had to be up early to get an unbroken sunbed on the side of the pool that didn't go into shade by half 1, and although the sunbeds and pads were free if you put up an umbrella you were charged 5 leva.

We had read that there were lots of jellyfish in the sea before we went so that put us off going in the sea, although we did go and put our feet in the black sea, the beach was always quite busy although alot of people were using their towels as opposed to paying the 15 leva for the sunbeds.

As it was the last two weeks of season, even when we got there alot of places had started to shut down and over the fortnight we saw alot of the hotels and bars closing down. We found the Glarus Hotel that had a bar attached to it that we went to, we got good service, the drinks were cheap, buy one get one free and not weak!!

We spent a couple of days in Nessebar, 1 lev on the bus, which was beautiful, although sold alot of the same stuff as the srtip in front of the hotel did, and we found the illegal money changers quite pushy to try and get you to change money with them.

Although most bars had someone out front trying to get you inside they were never pushy, or aggressive if you said no thanks.

All in all we had a good holiday with only 2 rainy days, and although not in a rush to go back, I would like to return..."

"just back from 2wks in sunny beach, hotel has an ideal beach location, we had a lovely room on the 12th floor, having a corner room we had a balcony at the front and at the side, so we got the sun the whole day. room was cleaned every day, clean towels every day, clean bedding every 3rd day. Even though we were on an b+b basis, having been to bulgaria twice before we know to give hotel food a miss, as there is plenty of good eating establishments to be found, food and drink prices are still very reasonable in sunnybeach, however due to the globus's location especially if your on the end building, your so close to the main drag you get all the music coming out from the bars more so the open air night clubs, which pump out music from about 8 at night to about 4 in the morning, even later in the high season, maybe not an ideal location for people with youg families, good idea if balkan holidays pointed this out in their holiday brochure, as the main drag is surounded by several big hotels, all in all a good holiday"
