I travelled here with my family summer 2016 after having visited Bulgaria twice before. This hotel is very modern and the rooms were very comfortable. There are plenty of pools and plenty of loungers but be sure to get down by the pool by 7:30-8:00am latest to get a good spot. The animation team are all so lively and hilarious! They do start to get a little annoying though when they keep trying to make you play games (although I think they picked on me on purpose because all I do on holiday is sleep and lay in the sun lol!). The evening entertainment wasn't the best but was ok some nights. The main part of sunny beach is a short taxi ride away. We walked along the beach to get there and it took about an hour and then they lock the gates on the beach late at night so you have to come back a different route. The food was not good in my opinion and I am not a fussy eater. Breakfast was the best and their pizza was nice but that's about it - oh and the bread was nice. There was not very much variety. Also be careful as they are not very quick to clear up spillages, I nearly slipped about 3 times. Maybe I'm just clumsy. You can go to reception at any time and ask for water they will hand you massive bottles of it. Overall, I wouldn't return here again simply because of the dining options and I like to travel and see different places but I enjoyed my 2 week summer stay! More
Visited the hotel in Summer 2016 as a last minute holiday. Upon our arrival we were very pleasantly surprised as the hotel surpassed our very high expectations before we had used any of the facilities. Our room was absolutely beautiful with a lovely view of the pools and beach. The food was amazing throughout our stay and each meal had plenty of variety for every person. Food available throughout the day and the dining hall near to the pools was very useful. Number of bars throughout the hotel and many serve yourself drinks facilities, this meant no long waits to be served. Short trip to centre of Sunny Beach, we used a taxi arranged by hotel, very cheap but walk along the beach was just as nice. Beach for hotel guests was lovely and clean. Many activities arranged by entertainment team, encouraged you to join in but were not forceful if you wanted to relax. Pools well kept, clean and slightly too cold sometimes but was brilliant on the boiling hot days. Overall an amazing holiday and an amazing hotel! I cannot wait to return!More
The hotel was lovely although I have stayed in much better Riu's, I have given the hotel four stars as the location was just that little bit to far out for us, and the swimming pools were freezing. Rooms large and spacious with a safe, fridge, flat screen TV, and a lovely walk in shower in the bathroom. Food average, entertainment some of the worst I have ever seen in a Riu hotel although they did try hard. Hotel could do with a little more decor in places, a few pictures etc as very boring and very large empty white walls everywhere. Lifts very busy and times and hotel shop very expensive. I would return to Sunny Beach but probably not this hotel as to far out for us if hotel was closer to resort I would not hesitate to return, however would not go late September again as everything is starting to close down for the season.

Went to this hotel in bulgaria for our honeymoon hotel was super clean,very friendly staff. One of the best thing was the entertainment team very engaging and friendly. The only downfall for me was the food it got a bit repetitive but i think it has alot to do with personal choice with food other then that i would recomend this hotel.More
First time in SB, We were on floor 3 and had views of the sea, small amount of the pool and gardens. The room was exactly as advertised and kept very clean by the house keepers (who are really polite and do a brilliant job!) Around a 15-20 minute walk into sunny beach, however I found it nice not to be on the doorstep of the busy streets but close enough if you wanted a change of scenery. Swimming pools are amazing to look at, we didn't find them freezing as others have said, plenty of sunbeds! The entertainment team were all polite and have something for everyone. The hotel is absolutely huge with a lot of grounds so enough places to sit and relax. Cocktails are included in the all inc (except mojito) and the prosecco is included too. The beach bar is not all inclusive but you get 30% off and it is really cheap in comparison to other bars - Calm atmosphere and again, polite and attentive staff. First time at a Riu hotel and has left a good impression! :) More
