"what can i say only dont book to stay here.Been to bulargia 8 times and love the place but this hotel is the worst i have ever stayed in we stayed for 2 weeks halfboard. The food is rubbish would not give it a dog when you do get food you have to wait 10 minutes for a fork,knife or a glass to have a drink they are always running out of everything at meals times.Sunbeds there is not enough you have to be up for 7 to get one and then there are dirty. The pool area was cleaned every day at 10 with you sat on the sunbeds and some cleaner with a dirty mop cleans around you. In the whole 2 weeks we was there we never saw any one clean the pool would not go in that pool.The bedrooms were dirty and the bathroom was filthy would not unpack lived out of the suitcase. THE staff was nice and the bar and shop stayed open 24 hours thats only the good points to this dump sorry hotel would not go back even for free."

"Exellent place to stay, staff very helpful and polite. The location is fantastic for night life and the beach is a 30 second walk away. The food was good and the waiters could not do enough for you. The rooms were very clean and modern, cleaner came round to clean every day and the towels got changed every two days so did the bed sheets. Why pay top prices for hotels when this one was clean modern in a prime spot and cheap. We are going back to the same hotel. Karoke bar at the side of the pool every night its a must. One of the best holidays our family has had."

"Great location with fantastic views across the resort, power shower could take your skin off, also useful for getting the toilet bowl clean,(should have told the cleaner)! didnt hear a vacuum cleaner all fortnight! towels changed twice only! Restaurant was heavily into re-cycling tho, if something didnt get eaten on Monday, it was served again on Tuesday! then Wednesday and so on!!! Luckily we found the Emona restaurant about 100 yards from hotel, GREAT FOOD!!!!! GREAT STAFF!!!!! VERY CHEAP AS WELL!!!! would visit resort again, NEVER THAT AWFUL HOTEL, SURLY STAFF!! APART FROM 1 RECEPTIONIST!! FAWLTY TOWERS,BULGARIAN STYLE!!!!!!"

"Just come back from 11 nights in Sunny Beach Bulgaria staying at the Palace Hotel.. went with friend and had a fab time there.... Hotel was clean, staff were friendly tho a little difficult to speak to but only due to language barrier, whatever room they allocate to you, you always get a lovely view, Breakfast was a little limited and it did get a bit boring having the same every morning but on the whole the food was good and always fresh, would definately go back and stay at the same hotel... The place itself was a hive of activity with plenty to see and do but if you prefer a quieter location try Nessebar (Old Town) that place was so lovely like stepping back in time.... all in all I would give it 10 out of 10 .. Hotel great, place so alive, beach clean and also cleaned everynight and people very friendly without being over powering .... would recommend this holiday location and hotel to any age group."

"- rude cleaning staff anf reception staff
- accusations of theft of alcohol in mini bar
- belongings stolen from our hotel room
- hotel manager cocky and unhelpful, basically said I was lying about missing items
- no action taken in regards to missing items
- no apologies given when realised wrong about the mini bar theft
- other people we spoke to complained of same issues; belongings taken and lack of interest from hotel manager
please bare this in mind when considering where to stay, i would hate the same thing to happen to more people"

Hotel OK, Sunny Beach Not

"We stayed here in June 2008, and to be fair, we couldn't actually fault the hotels cleanliness and facilities. The staff are a bit grumpy, but there, you can't have everything, but the cleaning ladies who did our room everyday were lovely and seemed to work tirelessly every hour of the day

Personally, did not like Sunny Beach and found it incredibly seedy and unfriendly. NEVER get on one of those taxi bikes that prowl on the front, we were ripped off and actually threatened when we refused to pay. Walk, nothing is really too far and its safer

Did find a couple of bars we really liked though. The Viking Bar at the junction from the strip to the bar street and Amigos, just opposite the hotel. The restuarant ( whos name escapes me at the moment) just down the road ( the one with the windmill outside) from the hotel was also very nice, the best food we had all week with some lovely staff"

"I think we must have stayed at a totally different place to some of the other reviewers? We stayed at the Palace between Aug 17th to 31st this year (2008) and were SO pleasantly surprised. We had originally booked to stay all inclusive at the Pomorie hotel but after reading trip advisor decided to change accommodation, we DID at one point think we may have jumped out of the frying pan into the fire when we read the reviews for the Palace, wel how wrong could we be? The Palace occupies a FABULOUS location right on the beachfront in what we now believe to be the best part of Sunny beach by far. The hotel itself was spotless and the staff tireless in their efforts to clean, tidy etc. The food was great, always something for everybody, we were a party of 6 three adults three children.We did take a (VERY LONG) walk to check out the Pomorie and our decision to change, WOW the relief, if ever a right decision had been made, this was it, the Palace really DID live up to its name compared to the Pomorie. If u want 5 star luxury, then pay five star luxury prices, but if u want great value for money, FANTASTIC location and an all round great holiday, choose the Palace. Would reccommend anytime to anyone and would DEFINATELY go back."
