The Riviera Beach is very big and consisted of several buildings. Al we in the september were there, was only building 1 of the Riviera Beach in 'operation'. The hotel is a former regierungskomplex, so fenced, so actually only guests on the site. The hotel is very spacious and very clean. There is free wi-fi in the hotel. When we were there, the average age lay in the rather upper area ☺ there were a few young people there, but also because of the off season could. Bewertung lesen

    Our room was nice and large and with a sea view! ☺ Even the balcony was very large. The bathroom is modern and clean. There is a tv, a pay minibar, a free safe, air conditioning, telephone, a closet and a chest of drawers for clothes.

  • Sport und Unterhaltung
    5.0

    There were 2 pools, one with a small slide for children and a large for swimming. The drinks at the pool bar are liable to pay the costs and not included in the all-inclusive package included. There were 3 entertainers. In the morning at 10 o'clock was outside yoga, 2 times a day Bocce on the beach, darts, 17 hours soccer, and water aerobics. Beach chairs were enough available. There were showers on the beach. The beach itself is not so fine sand as you might from other places knows; there are further up some stones, which was a bit unpleasant. The beach drops very quickly a bit from, so that it is for small children maybe not so could be a suitable.

  • Lage und Umgebung
    6.0

    From the airport varna we have about half an hour to the hotel (direct way airport hotel, as we were the only transfergäste were). The location is good; you need about 10-15 minutes to the gold beach (with bars, small shops...) As we were from mid/end september were there, some stores and bars after already closed. At the end of the vacation was only there was still very little going on. The beach is hotel own and one fell quasi from the room directly into the sea. The centre of varna come one with the bus, which departs from just in front of the hotel (costs per person. 3 leva - cost about 1,50 Euro; very convenient for the relatively 'long' way). In front of the hotel there was also taxis, but are more expensive (always price). If you 3. or 4. runs, is also the price affordable. We stayed with 4 people 20 leva (10€) paid. Excursions were offered by the tour operator, we ourselves did not take part in. We heard from other, that some excursions were very recommended.

    The staff was always friendly. The rooms are cleaned daily. Than once our room from the room service was forgotten, handed a brief information at the reception and the small 'problem' was repaired immediately. You can in addition to the towels in the room every day a towel for the pool. In the hotel you could well communicate in german or english. A doctor was as far as i know also in the hotel.

  • Gastronomie
    4.0

    According to x information map of the hotel there were many restaurants, but we could only one of them use (was possibly because of the fact that the season almost over), but absolutely no downside was. The food was good. In the morning, there was bread/sausage/honey... Also fried eggs, scrambled eggs, boiled eggs, pancakes and salad. As drinks, they offered coffee from the automat and juice. At noon and in the evenings next to salads there were altogether 6-7 different warm things (so side dishes, meat/fish, vegetables and so on). The selection was not so large, but it was varied and you always found something, what a tastes. Drinks: hot drinks, alcoholic beverages to take, beer at the bar and soft drinks. 2 times during our week stay, there was a conference at the hotel, so some of the tables were reserved. But a problem with space there was still not. The meals were unfortunately in the last few days changed daily, which we found not so nice thought.

In our opinion the hotel has no 5 stars. The quality and the variety of food are poor. All-inclusive is a ancillary service in the house and the guests get it to feel. The pool bar is not for all-inclusive guests and a small pool bar for all inclusive guests the soft drinks of sulphurous water. On weekends, the pool area both leisure, as well as the local available. Overall the hotel we can, particularly as a 5 star hotel, not good. Bewertung lesen

The hotel is very well maintained and lies somewhat apart from the ' centre golden sands ' around 10 minutes away on foot directly at the sea. Wi-fi is available in the entire hotel and the pool in fairly decent speed available. Large, well-kept pool area with two pools and additional children's swimming pool. The beach is well taken care of and fine grained. Deckchairs and umbrellas are sufficiently available. Bewertung lesen

    This is probably a small deficiency in this hotel. One was good enough, and there was always something, that tasted, but you expect more. But it is also not inedible as many write here. There was a frontcoocking station and monday has large grilled. Soft drinks one taps itself, beer and long drinks at the bar. The drinks were always well chilled, there was real Coca-Cola etc. And delicious beer.

    During the day there was a light but not intrusive or disturbing entertainment. Bocce water ball water aerobics are only a few things offered. There was also a child care but we can not judge. Pool as already written, well maintained and with sufficient couches equipped, as it was on the beach. Beach cloths gets one daily.

The hotel has unfortunately a somewhat bad aftertaste. When you go all-inclusive, you 'normal' good food. That was not the case at all. The meat was more than tough, the vegetables raw and all the food was bland. No fresh fruit, but canned fruit! Never 5 stars! The hotel gladly again, but only with breakfast, which to some extent was okay. We enjoyed the restaurants (very good and cheap) nearby evening used and therefore more expenditure as planned! So rather not recommendable! Bewertung lesen

    The dishes were unfortunately often only lukewarm/plates and cutlery were not always sufficiently available, so that you would ' supplies' had to wait. That was partly the offered dishes. In the lobby-bar there were no saucers! The offered pastry for afternoon coffee you had to on foam plates set, the cutlery were made of plastic and with five (!) stars. The bar itself was preferably for paying guests - for all inclusive-guests had to self-service a few bottles is required. Sparkling wine only on specific pressure in sektgläsern poured out (otherwise wine glasses).
