60 Traveller reviews from Holiday Watchdog
"We had the good fortune to book into this hotel 2011 and would strongly recomend it. The rooms were lovely and spacious, service of all staff excellant, spotlessly clean. Now for the food, well that was in a league of its own. Always had a great selection of both hot and cold food.We will be going back next year to this hotel again. Everyone is made to feel very special from the time you arrive until home time. It may be a little more expensive but well worth it. This hotel is very near the bus station "

Excellent choice of hotel
"From start to finish our holiday was outstanding so will start at the beginning.If you have choice of doing your transfers seperate i would suggest you do and use resorthoppa.com,private cat straight to hotel and back,cutting out all the faffing about dropping others off at their hotel.Was 4 in morning when we arrived and were informed that snacks and beverages were available if we wanted them in the dining room.Room was a great size,very comfortable beds and kept spotless by the maids,who made our day by arranging the towels into different shapes.Breakfast couldnt be faulted with something for everyone and if anybody wasnt satisfied with the selection they must be very very fussy eaters.The snack bar was best ive came across in all the years of going A/I.Staff cleaned up as soon as you put down an empty plate/glass..and always with a smile on their face.Kids club was excellent and have to give the animation team 10/10 for their enthusiasm..they were on the go from morning till night.Days out have to include the pirate cruise,which was 1 of the funniest days out ive had on holiday,and the waterpark at nessebar is definately worth a visit,as is a day at the beach..spotlessly clean and the fun u can have just playing about in the waves can go on for hours.All in all this hotel deserves full marks..if i could give more i would.Have recommended it to all our friends and family..even people we met out there lol,hope to be back in the future as Bulgaria has got to be the most friendliest place ive been to."

Very Very Good
"Hi, First time in Bulgaria so was excited and choose the Iberostar sunny beach, so glad we did from the first moment we arrived we were looked after, our arrival was at 3:20am we got a warm welcome and a little food was laid on aswell, The place is spotless at all times, cleaners are everywhere, food is ok but im a fussy eater the rest of my party was happy with it, now we travelled with my son who is nearly 2 and was worried about the change but the animation team made him feel special the whole time he was there, he learnt all the kids disco songs and went to all the friendly team with open arms, there are activities during the day to keep you from getting too bored i cant say enough about this hotel i will defo think about going back!"

The perfect hotel
"I read alot of reviews on this hotel before booking, alot of positives but a few negitives. All the small doubts where washed away as we arrived, friendly welcome by the reception staff (complementry drink on arrival), checked in quickly and shown to our room.
ROOM:Well decorated, clean, spacious, good size balconey over looking the 4 pools, small fridge (enough room for half a dozen beers and a bottle of wine!)
cable tv (all german channels though) and great bathroom, shower & bath. Cleaned daily to high standard 10/10.
FOOD: We stayed A/I and the food was fantastic, great selection, fresh fruit and salad every meal. local beer, wine, spirits and soft drinks inc.10/10.
ENTERTAINMENT: My 3 year old son loved the kids club which ran 10-1 and 3-5 everyday loads of activies to keep them entertained, the kids club staff where great! Adult entertainment included shooting (not the Germans,paper targets!!) water polo, bouls, darts & football + more thoughout the day.
Kids Mini disco was everynight at 8-9 then adult show ran by the entertainment staff 9-10ish, which was always a laugh! 10/10
POOLS: Always clean, plenty of sun beds (if your not to late going to the pool) around the pool was always being cleaned. Towel service was great, just exchange your dirty wet towel at the end of the day.
STAFF: What can I say, all excellent, friendly, polite, helpful and well presented from the cleaners right to the entertainment staff! 10/10.
Age groups ranged from young same sex groups, couples, families with young children, families with teenage children and older couples.
All different nationalities, we were there during the World Cup so it was very colourful with the different shirts! English,German, Dutch, American, Russian, Scandinavian, Spanish and Romanian.
I would highly recommend this hotel, we have been to Bulgaria 3 times now and overall this is the best hotel we have stayed in, we will be returning next year!"

The best in Bulgaria if you have under 6's
"This was my first holiday abroad with my children (3 & 4) and I would happily recommend this hotel with utmost confidence. My kids arrived feeling nervous and within a few hours, the 'Animation Team' had won them over. The amount of time/effort the guys spent with my kids was unreal and both of them developed a bond very quickly. Both kids are very difficult to feed, the restaurant staff and Animation Team helped out almost every day with encouragement, it made our stay a far more relaxed experience. The shows for the kids and adults were a lot of fun and different every day. We have come away from Iberostar Sunny Beach with a really relaxed mind and we are seriously thinking of returning again this year - I know the kids will love it!, Personal Thanks to Bogdan, Silva, Nelli, Eli, Dessi, Teddi and the entire Animation Team. Totally amazing time guys, loved Lazur too!"

"Very clean hotel with good amenieties, very friendly staff. brilliant room and conveniently situated .
The food was atrocious not very appetising to look at or taste and to be given the option of sprouts or green beans with your breakfast says it all ( I am not joking ).
The Helios hotel opposite the Iberostar is a much better option."

"having stayed @ the iberostar sunny beach for i week we couldn't fault it, very very polite @ efficient staff in all areas no pushing or shoving fantastic food, and so much choice, my husband is a vegetarian @ the choice of food was the best he had encountered in a long time. having been to bulgaria 5 times now the only difference is the prices have gone up dramatically, but have'nt they everywhere. spotless hotel deserves the 4*grade i in fact would give it a 5*. will certainly go back again."

IBEROSTAR SUNNY BEACH
"The Iberostar Sunny Beach Resort is a nice hotel situated just away from the main area of Sunny Beach.Our room was a Junior Suite and was very spacious and clean.There was a good variety of food at the hotel,unfortunatly the quality left something to be desired.The staff were all very polite and friendly,along with the variety team who were all very enthusiastic.The resort itself is very very tacky.The shops are very basic with every other one selling the same tacky products.The resort seems to be catering for an age group between 18 and 24.On the whole the weather was very hot and made for an enjoyable week holiday.I would think that next year the prices will rise quite significantly with the introduction of the euro.At the moment it represents good value for the British traveller."
