16 Jun, 2006Bob (194.158.204.14)any towels for seabeds? Are there any towels for seabeds available or shall I take mine with me? 
16 Jun, 2006Lisa (195.93.21.35)Royal Park Hotel Hi all, I was determined that I would be writing a good report on the hotel contrary to most of the comments I read for last year and I pleased to say that I can!

The hotel is stunning, the rooms are generous, the whole complex is immaculately clean and tidy. The food isn't great but is ok, if your willing to try something thats not familiar then you can be pleasantly surprised. It certainly isn't undercooked and the meals are varied daily so you will always find something that you can eat. You may get a bit tired of eating luxurious cakes for desert but they are particularly yum!

The entertainment is a bit scarce from the first choice team but there is a good show on around 9 o'clock put on by the hotels Animation team of professional dancers. Look out for the Maximus show every monday, some very hunky male strippers for the ladies!

As far as the kids clubs go, there is always something going on, my boys are 8 but they didnt find anything they wanted to join in within the kids clubs. If you have children from around 4-6 then it appeals to that age group. The teens around the complex were happy as is it safe for them to go off and do their own thing and the ones I spoke to said that it was the best hol theyd had!

There are 4 restaurants that you can eat at but I personally preferred the main one in the hotel. There are many little shops and tattoo/piercing places. I was adamant that Id never get a tattoo but came home with 2 and a pierced belly button! Its very cheap to get it done, and clean and safe from my experience.

We went on the Off Road Adventure excursion. I would highly recommend it, it was a great laugh and we got to go accross the mountains in a jeep, do horse riding and quad bike riding, archery, air rifling and visit a fantastic deserted beach which was breathtaking.

A short walk from the hotel is an equestrian centre which costs 32 lev for an hours ride in the mountains. Give that a go too!

The staff were as friendly as you are towards them and as you get to know them they will always greet you with a smile so don't be put off at first.

There were a couple of power cuts, one which lasted a few hours another of an hour. This is quite normal apparantly and to be expected but caused minimal problems.

Overall it was a great holiday. The only negative things is that you can quickly get bored but if you get out of the complex for a bit it makes it so much better. Also there are no all-inclusive cocktails, but be careful of the spirit measures! They are very large and they dont seem to have mastered the watering down of drinks as yet which is good.

Highly reccommend the hol for all ages. The building work was totally unnoticed so dont panic over that! Well worth the money and well worth a visit. Enjoy...xx

13 Jun, 2006Gerry (195.93.21.35)Royal Bay just back from the Royal Bay. Contrary to some reports from last year the food was great and we had a fantastic time.
There is a new waterpark being built near the security entrance to the Royal Park. It will in no way affect your holiday and besides it is very near completion, landscaping currently being done. I suspect it will be completed within the next few weeks 
08 Jun, 2006Val Harrod (213.86.133.215)Royal Bay Hotel We stayed at the Royal Bay last year. The hotel is very clean, food ok. Staff very helpful, nothing is to much trouble.

I am going back in July with my two teenage grandchildren. The resort has a private beach.

It is easy to get in to sunny beach were there are many resturats and shops as well as a sandy beach. 
06 Jun, 2006ELIZABETH (86.130.29.56)ROYAL PARK HOTEL ME AND MY MATE ARE DUE TO GO TO THE ROYAL PARK HOTEL ON THIS COMING FRIDAY.WE WOULD LIKE TO KNOW ABOUT THE BULIDING WORK AS WE HAVE 4 YOUNG CHILDREN WITH US.IF ANYONE HAS ANY INFORMATION ABOUT IT PLEASE LET ME KNOW THANKYOU. 
06 Jun, 2006Jase.H. (193.128.219.97)Suitable For a 1 Year Old ? Hi,
Our friends have booked to go on the 7th of July 2006, we too have the chance to go with our daughter who has only just turned 1, my wife is greatly concernded for the health of our daughter (all the reports over the food/hygene we have read). Now I now taking a 1 year old abroad isnt the best of ideas, but we really could do with a holiday, the wife wants to go to mainland Spain, but I think this would be OK, any comments please? 
04 Jun, 2006Catherine (88.105.254.181)Royal Park I have had the best holiday in the royal park hotel, it it beautifully decorated and has some fantastic facilities.... i would recommend it to anyone! 
04 Jun, 2006Craig McDougall (192.88.166.35)Info req'd Hi there,
We are a family of 3 travelling on the 17th July to the Royal Park. I must say that the recent reviews from those who have just returned have certainly helped to put my mind at ease as I was becoming increasingly wary !!!
Is it as difficult as is made out to get sunbeds of a morning ???
Is it good for the kids ?
What's the weather like ?
What's NOT included in the all-inclusive deal ?

03 Jun, 2006Richard (81.174.151.165)For Lisa at the Royal Park PHEW!!! Thanks Lisa! Made me feel a whole lot better :) 
02 Jun, 2006Dawn Pitt (159.101.41.144)Royal Bay ? Hi Ben

We are in the same boat - I've spoken to CS today at DH and she was telling em that there is tis holiday complex there and NOTHING else - so fine if you want to stay there all day otherwise you will have to travel further afield. We have a 3 yr old and like to "stroll" out on an evening to get an ice cream looking in the sops etc so am not sure if this is really for us. I've asked DH about other AI hols departing from Manchester either Sunday/Monday and they only have Costa Dorada.

Hope someone gets back to us soon ....

02 Jun, 2006Lisa (213.169.41.122)Royal Park Hi there all, I am at the royal park hotel as we speak and I thought it might be a nice idea to put everyones minds at rest! The building work is so minimal it was hardly worth the letter that we got about it. I was worried but be assured, it will not affect you in any way, there is no noise and dirt at all. The worst you may hear is a hammer as you are walking out of the complex, it is far away enough from everything that you will not even notice. I have been here 1 week and didnt notice the work going on until yesterday so that cant be bad ay!! :-) The weather up until now had been glorious, has rained a bit the past couple of days but not enough to spoil too much.

Any fears about the hotels reveiws, well, in some cases I can see where theyre coming from but on the whole it is a stunningly clean, friendly and beautifully built hotel. Ok, admittedly the food isnt superb, but there is something that will appeal. The only complaint I have is that you dont get cocktails all inclusively but hey, its no biggy! You are all gonna have a fab time so quit your worrying, its cool!

Wishing you all a good hol,
Kind regards from Elenite
Lisa

02 Jun, 2006julia (80.42.240.88)royal park hotel Hi
going to royal park hotel on 5th of june and like everyone else was assured building work wouold be finished(booked with going places & they didnt even know about until i told them!) like richard can anyone let us know how noisy it was? did it cause a problem?  
02 Jun, 2006susan (81.155.161.99)Building work Hi Richard Returned from Royal Park Hotel on Monday.
We were at the back of the hotel the water park isnt right next to the hotel it is at the bottom of the long driveway up to the hotel. When we were there we hardly noticed any work going on, and at that stage building work was going on in several close areas to the hotel.

02 Jun, 2006Richard (81.174.151.165)Royal Park To all the people who have just returned, how bad is the building work? I originally moved my holiday because of the work involving the aquapark and the noise. I was originally going on 22nd May, but received a letter about the building of the Aquapark 2 weeks before i was due to leave. I then forwarded to 12th june as First Choice said that the work would cease by 1st June due to building legislation in Bulgaria. However, with just a week to go before we depart, the letter once again came through the door this time telling us of the AquaPark building work at the side of the Royal Park Hotel. They say there are cranes errecting the water slides and hand tools being used.

I am rather annoyed that First choice only send out these letters with just over a week before the holiday is due to commence. They know by then that the majority of people will still go where as if they had told people earlier, they would have cancelled or changed to a different resort.

We have no choice but to go this time and are determined to enjoy ourselves. 
01 Jun, 2006Lorraine (82.40.201.45)Elenite Holiday Village Im only back a matter of days and im booking up for Sept again, if your looking for a blackpool kind of holiday then head to sunny beach but if you want a peaceful quiet holiday i would def recommend it. I went with my 2 yr old son and he had a ball so taking him back for his birthday. 
01 Jun, 2006Ronnie (213.150.1.76)Hotel Royal Park - Baby Bed Dear All!
We are going to Royal Park on the 14th June with a 2year old boy. Our travel ageneny just informed us that the baby-bed is just a non-binding whish of the customer. Is this a problem? I thought that Royal Park is a child-friendly hotel. Shall I take a bed with me???

Looking forward in getting any information.

Thanx, Roni 
01 Jun, 2006Susan (81.155.160.159)Royal Park Hotel I have just returned from the Royal Park hotel.Heres some answers to some of the questions.
In the Royal Park Hotel area you can eat in one of the 3 restaraunts, there is the main restaurant, then the ala carte, and taverna the last two you have to book up for.
Cashpoints and phone boxs are a bus ride away, room phones are very expensive to use beware!! we made 15minutes worth of calls which cost us 35 there were also problems when our children (who were back in England)tried to ring in to speak to us on our room phone on both occasions they couldnt get through.
Elenite is a result on its own there are shops on the complex but you are cut off from any main shops.
If you happen to smoke cigars take them with you as no where on the complex sells them and in Sunny Beach which is a bus ride away they are very expensive my husband paid 10 for two packs!! 
31 May, 2006jo (62.254.64.12)bad reviews we are a family of 6 and travelling on the 2nd of june quite concerned on the bad reviews anyone been recently ?whats it like?...im very excited..... 
31 May, 2006Johan (213.114.245.95)Restaurants Does anyone know how many restaurants there are in the area? 
31 May, 2006Gerry (62.253.32.4)Towels Do I need to pack beach towels or are these avaliable daily?

Many thanks 
26 May, 2006Gill (80.192.240.20)Elenite Village There is no cash machine in the village but there is one in the town - just a bus ride away.
 
25 May, 2006Richard (81.174.151.165)Elenite Holiday Village From what I understand, the people staying in the village are able to eat in any of the restaurants within the complex and also at the Royal Bay Hotel. I don't think they are allowed to eat at the Royal park Hotel though.

As I understand it, there are different colour bands which you have on your wrist to differentiate between your accomodation. Those staying in the Royal Bay hotel being the poorer band, Those in the Elenite Village being able to eat anywhere except the Royal Park Hotel, and those in The Royal park being able to eat anywhere in the complex.

Hope this helps :)

I'm going on 12th june to Royal park and it can't come soon enough :) 
25 May, 2006amanda (195.93.21.67)elenite holiday village can anyone tell me,when you stay in the village can you eat at any place or do you have to stick to your own hotel?also is there a cash machine in the village?thanks.

21 May, 2006Lisa (195.93.21.67)Thanks Gill Im so pleased your posted that comment, that is really helpful, thankyou. I am going on friday. I was very concerned after reading the reviews as Im sure everyone is, but Im determined that its gonna be great and you have cemented that!!! Has anyone else had their flights changed by the way?? First choice do like to spring things at you at the last minute dont they! Theyre actually better flights so im not complaining, just wondered if anyone else was affected as the letter stated that a few flights had been shifted around?  
21 May, 2006Gill (80.192.240.20)Royal Park , Elenite We are a family of six (our kids when travelling were 14, 11, 7 and 5) and we stayed here for two weeks during July, 2005 - this was the best holiday we have ever had. Yes there is building work going on around the town area but the complex is away from there. We stayed on the complex mainly and there was plenty to do - only went into town a couple of times by bus for shopping - the food was good, there are loads of different places to eat. There are three hotels on the complex and if you are all inclusive you are allowed to use all three and there are plenty of different bars and pools. The beach is great and the sea is lovely. The only problem we had was when one of the children was ill during the night through too much sun and we couldn't get any drinking water - make sure you stock up before going to bed.

All in all we had a fantastic time - we were really worried as we only found out after it was too late the bad reports that this place had been getting, we went to see First Choice who assured us that they were just teething problems as they had only opened the year before and weren't really ready for guests. It was too late to do anything about it so we went anyway and it was brilliant.
