On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword .wait there's even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That's right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. 
20 Jul, 2008Lisa marie ()Food poisoning Have just heard from my friends at the Royal Park Hotel, they flew out a week ago & all 4 of them are on drips today!!!

19 Jul, 2008Andy ()Royal Park Dont Worry Hi Guys We returned home from the royal park last week (2 adults and 2 children aged 8 & 10) we had a ball, nearly cancelled when we read the reviews but glad we did'nt. Go with an open mind, a good sense of adventure, a torch and some imodium just in case (we took 8 boxes adn didnt use any lol) Count your towels every day and tell reception if you have any missing. Dont run in the water park so you dont fall and hurt your self. the food is ok we cut ours in half to check it was cooked through before eating it but we do that where ever we go in the world. The kids clubs are fab, the bulgarians from the manage down to the lady who tidies up round the pool are friendly if you speak to them how you would like to be spoken to. my children found out how to say please and thank you in Bulgarian and we didnt have to q. have a lovely time the hotel is beautiful and clean the beach is fab and the weather is even better, the pool is freezing you need a few seconds to catch your breath when you dive in but it keeps you cool for longer when you get out. any questions and i will answer you as honestly as i can. AND FOR GOD SAKE DONT ASK ANY ENGLISH TOURISTS ARE THEY ENJOYING IT OR YOU WILL BE STUCK LISTENING TO THEM MOAN FOR HOURS.

23 Jun, 2008nicola ()royal bay hotel hi going to the royal bay on august 22 with 2 kids aged 15 and 10 what excursions are there for us to take them on. what is royal bay like??? r there water sports available on site? 
15 Jun, 2008andy ()oh dear The hotel looks great. we had a family room with the separate side room for the kids. the room was huge which was ideal for the kids, TV in the kids room had no socket to plug in an ariel so that never worked, our TV was dead when we arrived and it took 4 complaints to reception and me walking a manager up to our room to get it sorted. The air con never worked but i couldnt find anyone who had a working unit. the only english TV channel was BBC world news.

The 2 pools that are with this hotel are okay but both were freezing. The area around the pool was usually full even though the hotel was only at one third full occupancy, i would imagine that in august its a complete nightmare.
The food is not brill. The buffet restaurant was always busy and i dread to think what its like in the summer, i was usually able to find something to eat but it gets a bit repetitive after a few days, its regularly stone cold and quite often the chicken was not cooked.
there are 3 other restaurants that you can use, the first is Talyana which is a BBQ style restaurant and was not bad, again watch for the raw chicken, the second is a Bulgarian style restaurant called Sozzapol (not sure of the spelling), we did not eat here but heard good reports about the food, the last one is in the 5 star hotel next door, its called Sunshine and is only open from 10pm till 11pm (great idea that) this one has waiters and you get to choose from a menu. All 3 of these need to be booked in advance, although Sunshine was always empty, probably because of the opening times.
Ther are many snack bars around for hotdogs, kebabs (or as the sign says kepaps), pizza and sandwiches. the only place on the whole site for ice cream is in the back of the coffee shop. the poster in reception says that there is a baked potato stall next to reception but no one could find that. another thing i find strange is that there is nowhere to get food after 9:30.
we found ourselves going accross the road to Pacos Bar, dont be put off by the fact it looks like it was built by robinson cruso, its a great place and opens from 4pm till whenever they feel like closing.

The entertainment was awful. the ampitheatre was closed for repair so the only place for entertainment was the animation hall.
my kids will usuall watch any old rubbish but even they complained about it, imagine getting the krankies and the chuckle brothers together, getting them drunk and watching them, well thats the quality of the entertainment.

the kids clubs are good but only take 24 kids so the chances of getting them in is pretty slim, also some of the clubs have to be paid for (6 levs for the chocolate club for example)

The reps (first choice) are a waste of space, they are only there to sell the product (trips) all of which are VERY overpriced.
The trip to Khans Tent is 89 levs per adult and kids are 54 levs, total for our family would be 286 levs, for that you get a coach to the dinner show and a 4 course set meal. if you go to Pacos Bar he will arange a taxi for you to go, entry is free and you can choose from a menu, cost of taxi 60 levs return plus food 28 levs, total of 88 levs, so we saved 198 levs on this trip alone.
all the other trips can be booke else where, we found the best place to be at a travel shop called Condor, its about 100 yards past the sunny beach bus stop, all the trips are much cheaper and are exactly the same including being picked up by coach from the hotel.

the water park is quite good, drinks and food are expensive, and for god sake dont break anything, they wont let you leave till its paid for.

now this is where it gets scary....... THE GREAT ROYAL PARK TOWEL SCAM....... we had heared about a great many people being charged for missing towels when they tryed to check out, so we kept count of ours each day and if they were incorrect we would go to reception and ask for a replacement, after being accused of leaving it on the beach or by the pool we would get another one. when we were checking out 2 familys were being asked for payment for missing towels, one lady, staying with 3 kids was being told she had to pay 155 levs, she had no money left and could not pay and why should she as it was a mistake,
within half an hour 6 big Russian (not Bulgarian) men arrived in reception and were following her around intimidating her. some of the male guests tryed to intervine in this and they became very theatening. the gates to the resort were locked and no one was alowed in or out. she was told that she could not leave the hotel until she had paid, this went on for about 2 hours until we had a whip round and paid it.
while this was going on the reps (Alan and Vlado) did absolutly nothing to help, saying it was not their problem, after a stand up row with some of the guests Alan admitted that this was a known problem and a regular occurance.
quite why first choice still use this hotel if this goes on, and why they dont warn people is beyond me.

when you book out they try and cut your wrist band off, DO NOT let them . if you are on an early in the morning flight it means that you could be sat around for over 12 hours with nothing to eat or drink. you cant even go to Pacos because they wont let you back in without a wrist band.

this hotel is classed as 4 star but is no more than a 2 at best.
im just really glad i didnt go in the summer.

10 Jun, 2008Stuart Elliott ()Sounds like I was there the same week.. Was there 11 nights, got back on 7th June , and for an "All Enclusive", it was abysmal.

The food, needed heating up in the turntable-less microwave, before it was edible, you have to pay for the Mini Golf, at 10 LV per person per hour, with 20 LV deposit, the problem is there are a number of water hazards, which contain the blackest water known to man, so you can easily spend an age trying to find your ball if it goes in, for fear of losing your deposit; Pool tables are 3 LV, internet access is 3LV 1/2hr or 6LV/hr

There is a Beach Bar, where you have to pay for the drinks, I never saw any people in it for more than 5 minutes.

If your kids want ice-cream out of meal times, they can only get it the bar beyond the "animation hall", if they want pizza, it's at the opposite end of the structure (which doesn't serve spirits, only beer).

We had two rented towels go missing from our bedroom, along with a white towel we had taken with us, I abused a First Choice rep until she managed to get the hired ones returned to us, but it was something I overheard happen to a number of people, with one lady with her two kids on the last day being accosted for 180 LV for towels she claimed she hadn't had at all.. (the towels are 20LV deposit - a nice little earner if they're not returned).

Other than Pacos mentioned, there is nothing in the vicinity outside of the complex, if you're interested in eating out (and for the love of god you want to after visiting the 'restaurant'), without getting a taxi (conveniently also owned by the same group who own the hotel) to either Sunny Beach (25 LV) or Nessebar (40 LV).

The reps are great at entertaining the kids, but woefully useless at solving the problems the hotel suffers, and when pressed, one said, we've been told to keep out of it by our bosses.

The water park next door is almost finished, they were just putting the finishing touches to a wave slide when we were leaving, but the 5 LV charge for hiring a sun bed, and the charge for the drinks is taking the piss (it is also part of the Elenite holiday village).

The 24H medical centre is seemingly on the take from SunnyMed in Sunny beach, arranging an ambulance to collect you for the most minor of injuries to take you the 6KM trip to the medical centre, for holiday insurance claims - funny looking bloke, looks like Dr Nick Riviera from the Simpsons.

Where possible, do not buy ANYTHING in the hotel complex, 11-15 LV for plastic football, 18 LV for inflatables rings/lilos - which incidentally, you can't use in the pools, and aren't safe enough to use in the sea, the knock-off D&G, etc clothing they sell in the market area on the basement level floor is much more expensive than the multitude of market stalls in Sunny Beach.

The weather was nice 90% of the holiday, and the hotel is physically 4*, but service was 2*.

Evening entertainment was kids disco at 8pm and bingo at 9pm in the Animation Hall, which gets VERY smoky as the night wears on, and the steps up to the bar are all tiled, and get slippy quickly as people spill their drinks up and down it.

Curiously the Irish themed, more adult orientated Morris Bar in the basement area again doesn't allow smoking, so people congregate outside it, whereas the kids / family Animation Hall becomes thick of cigarette smoke.. As a non-smoker the Morris Bar was a godsend.

My only genuinely, really enjoyable part of the holiday was having a mud massage and Turkish bath in the spa, which for my wife and I, including a facial for the missus worked out at around 350 LV.

Avoid this hotel like the plague.

29 May, 2008karen ()royal bay hotel more a question then a comment. travellin to the royal bay 14/07/08.flight times after bein changed so not flyin home until 00.15 am have young child was wonderin any problem keepin room on? 
27 May, 2008Elaine Bailey ()Elenites holiday village We were two families last year in Elenites and had such a totally chilled relaxing holiday with plent of night entertainment for kids that this year we are 5 families going. Villas were basic but spotless, no complaints at all and beach and sea were beatiful. This year we are booking into the Royal Bay just to vary it a bit. Food was very good some days and obviously got a bit same-ish but there was always something tasty. I work for a gourmet food company so know the difference. Fruit was sun ripened and fabulous. No forking in the pocket for the kids made this a total break for us. If you venture into Sunny Beach in the evenings keep everyone close as there are a few kids and I mean kids with their mafia pimps!! not nice at all.
Take money out of cashpoints as hotels and exchanges rip you off and one last thing you might fancy going for a meal in town for a change DONT go to the Chinese it was the only horrible food we had and it was relatively expensive.
All in all it was great as you can see we are going back. 
19 Apr, 2008Rebecca+ Marc () We are from holland and also going to Kidsworld in Bulgeria at the end of August-- I cant understand if there are different hotels all using the same facilities??? I read your comments some people are staying in Royal Park, some in Kids world is there a difference??  
19 Apr, 2008georgina ()confussed HellO am goiin in aug lol bitt worried bout the commentss andd can sumonee givee a possible attuide lol am onlyy 14 so stopp woryyiiin me  
16 Nov, 2007DAVE W (82.46.42.146)HOLIDAY HELL me a nd my family went to this Hotel in August 2007. every member of our family got ill . we are not fussy eaters so as we were on holiday we tried to eat the food .. but after only a couple of day we all started to get ill. it has been nearly 3 mnths since we have been back and finally we are all ok .. DO NOT BOOK TO GO TO THIS HOTEL IN HIGH SEASON and if you do or have already have good luck you are going to need it .
 
16 Oct, 2007Tracey (77.107.199.157)holiday from hell maybe some people enjoyed there hols and didn't get sick thats great but they can't call everyone who had problems moaners this was by far the worst holiday I've ever been on yes the veiw is amazing the waterpark beach and pool are fab there a variety of food the staff and reps are friendly and hepfull but people are getting sick a lot of people there has to be something wrong we paid 3000 euro for two adults and two children and we were all sick I had to give my 7 year old immodium it's not suitable for under 12's this show's how bad it is. We spent another 3000 euro over there which is an awfull lot of money and this was spent on taxi's into sunny beach to get food. Maybe it's not bad a certain times of the year but in aug it was dreadful. We went saying we'd wouldn't take any notice of the comments on this page and decide for ourselves it was bad I'd advise anyone who's booked it go if you want but bring plenty of immodium if you don't need it great but if you do you'll need plenty. Anyone who's just thinking of going don't bother book somewhere that has good reviews you'll thank me for it. We booked with falcon and I've a complaint in with them Im still waiting to hear back I'll post it on here when i do. The girl I spoke to I asked her why is it still in the book after so many complaints she said because they've a contract with the hotel they have to include it, even though the sickness is bad this year and last year and last year the owner of the hotel let playboy in to shoot a porn film while they had guests in the hotel just goes to show once they've gotten your money they don't care how your holiday goes. Sorry to put a dampner on anyone's hols but best you know now before you go. 
14 Oct, 2007lenny hodgson (62.31.185.238)No!

05 Oct, 2007Jitendra Raniga (80.46.108.185)Hotel Royal Park - Elenite Please! Please! Take caution if at all you decide to go to this hotel.It is no where classed as 4 star and the blackouts,food,illness and the service was the worst we have experienced in our lifetime.Never again!!! Not even if it's free.My two children had the worst experience only 5 & 7 yrs old and was supposed to be their 1st ever beach holiday.The sofa bed and other furniture was broken in the rooms and it took them 5 days to sort this out only when we threatened to sleep in the reception area as could not share two single beds with the kids which we did for 4 nights.There is no food hygeine in place and no one listens to you at all.Take caution and would try to avoid at all costs.We have lodged a complain with First choice but no action till date.Will definately not recommend to use either. 
13 Sep, 2007may (82.39.32.44) We came home in july from 14 nights of sickness,blackouts,uncooked food.my 3 year old was ill the last week of our hols when we got home i took her to the docs and she was admitted to hospital with ECOLI in her bladder. she now has to go to hospital on a reg base to get her kidneys screened, this hotel has one hell of a problem and its needs health and safty in there and fine out what the hells going on b4 this bug kills someone!

30 Aug, 2007Jez (62.24.148.166)The Royal Park Hotel First Choice reps did nothing to help all the sick guests at this hotel dispite several attempts to get through the lights were on but no one was home sprung to mind.
The food was cold and topped up not replaced and same old thing every night.
The guests were unbelievably ill with terrible stomach cramps diarrhoea & sickness that went on & on no amount of anti diarrhoea medication touched this.
The health & safety well I wont even go there.
We had furniture removed from our room with no explantion the maid just came on it while we undressed and off she went with two chair beds.
If you check before you go if the ill has gone thats no guarentee as some guest did this & was told there was no problem at the hotel & all lots fine on arrival but by day 1-3 the illness will hit & the cracks will start to appear.

 
30 Aug, 2007Debbie Clark (62.24.148.166)The Royal Park Hotel Correction: The pool bar had no HOT running water.
I didnt mention the pizza lady she does lovely pizza if you dont mind her playing with the rubbish bags and not washing her hands however her hot dogs are luke warm.
Oh and your need to be up sharp if you want that sunbed towels out as early as 6.30am although we did get some beds as late as 7.30am didnt we do well.
My husband missed out on the illness but got burnt in the shower by very hot water so be warned dont flush the toliet when someone is showering. 
30 Aug, 2007Debbie Clark (62.24.148.166)Royal Park Hotel We have just come back from a holiday from hell.
75% of guest at the royal park were ill will diarrhoea stomach cramps & sickness it was hell we came home on 28th Aug & still suffering although improving now.
The food is cold & diguising.
The First Choice reps were hopeless & did nothing to help even refused complaint forms saying theyd run out as theyd had so many complaints.
The w.c. had diarrhoea or sick on the floors and guests then washed their feet off in the pool.
The pool bar had no hot running water & was left out exposed all night & cats & any other animal could free walk over it & lick the taps your drinks come out of. I could go on the list is endless.
It was like a hospital not a hotel with the walking wounded expect a hospital would have shut their doors to more guest not keep shipping them in. You hard earnt money well that will flushed down the pan with the contents of you stomach. On a plus side the view was supurb but you wont see much of it from the w.c.
Dont be falled stop at home keep your money in your pocket.
I have logged a complaint with first choice requesting a full refund & compensation.........Watch this space

08 Jul, 2007MIchele (195.93.21.35)Villas I know what you mean regarding only reading reviews for the two hotels. I stayed in the villas last year (end of August) and they were great...very spacious (2 single beds and bunk beds)..plenty of storage, tv, mini fridge, shower only no bath. If possible try to request a low level villa near the beach especially if your little one is not good at walking. The villas are all set into the hillside and if you are at the top you will find that you are forever walking up and down steps.

We enjoyed our holiday last year and are going again this year at the same time. All activities were running as normal at the end of August and beginning of September...the only difference was that in high season they serve breakfast in the sozipol restaurant as well as in the main restaurant but this stopped on the 1st of September.

Enjoy your holiday... if you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask...I have posted a more detailed comment a couple of pages back which is worth reading.

17 Jun, 2007Angie (62.69.59.70)Royal Park Hotel Hi, I am going to the Royal Park Hotel with my partner and his two children - 12 and 16, on 2nd July. Read the reviews and I am now a bit worried about the food aspect. Kids are a bit fussy and it doesn't sound like there is a lot of choice and a long wait for food. Would like to hear from someone who has been recently. Thanks 
17 Jun, 2007dave & karen (81.103.115.203)whats there for our 3 yr old hi all flying out of cardiff end of july....i note food not the best what the bugs bunny club like and is it safe ?....any other families going out or been there previously.

diolch yn fawr[ta very much 
16 Jun, 2007Trotstopper (213.122.43.152)Elenite Just got back on 09/06 after a week in the royal park. The food issues described by everyone else are correct. It can be a real pain at meal times if you have kids. After a week I was releaved to be leaving just so I could eat something decent again. All inclusive bar sbacks is literally a choice of hot dogs or sun warmed cheese sandwiches, very poor. The food in the resort of Sunny Beach's restaurants is cheaper than the UK but fairly basic. On a serious note, If you have small children be aware that you may be given a room on a high floor and the rooms have balcony doors that cannot be locked from the inside. We were given such a room and changed it to a ground floor room. The hotel and beach is very clean but on an evening there isn't a great deal to do in the complex and the staff aren't entirely helpful or friendly due to a lack of genuine English speakers. There's no sky sports on offer by the way so forget any football though there are bars in Sunny Beach where you can watch it. And finally... There's a first choice entertainment rep called Nathan who insists on shouting everywhere he go's during the day, very annoying.  
16 Jun, 2007TK (172.188.43.193)Msg for Gareth & Janet Hi,

Firstly the football, we were there last year when the world cup was on and there was a bar in the complex under the Royal Park that had all the footy on, so you should be OK.


Secondly, Bad Reviews! - our party of 21 ranging from 12months to 81years all loved it, remeber a holiday is what you make it, the facilites are fantastic, the food and drink are plentiful, the sun is hot (but the pool is freezing, LOL) overall we thought it was a fantastic holiday, if there were to be one gripe it would be the queues for the food on a lunch time, but that was last year maybe now its better.

Cheers,
TK.
