It is our second visit at this hotel for duration of two years. The main reason we decided to stay at Riu Evrika was the additional security at every entrance of the complex. The hotel offers all inclusive service and the staff is very willing to please the customer but sometimes seems there is a bit of lack of training at the junior personnel level and they appear a bit pushy and not customer oriented. The beach price in included and having the beach bar is quite of convenience , as well as umbrella and chairs at the beach. The water was quite worm this year and clean. The Beach is great , quite clean. All rooms are maintained very clean and the overall pool area is being stripped clean with the water hose in the evening. The food is plent Overall minor concerns. The food quality has definitely denigrated this year, while a lot of attention was given to the serving and the appearance of the salad. I had the tasteless carrot soup in my life ever. Salads were not well prepared, some canned food seems to be served as well. The Japanese sushi was falling apart and the tempura was not crispy at all. The pool guard was taking a nap on the job and the guard at the beach was resting facing the direction opposite at the sea ( meaning he was not watching ). This is a definite safety concern. During the rain it was hard to get to the food court without getting wet. The junior personnel requires some training , as our plates were often scooped before we were finished or the bus-girls/boys would wait at our side pushing that we take our last bite to pick up the plate. Every morning 7-10 bus-girls would stand at the door to greet us, which seems a huge waste of resources. The room was not ready for quite a wile after the regular check in time. The furniture around the pool need replacement.
The staff were friendly and the food was great. The room was modern and very clean. Overall a great place to stay.
Big family room, cleaned every day, towels changed too daily. Nice swimming pools with a water slide. Good quality food but could be more varied. First night we had a very noisy room (with a view to a busy road, a lot of traffic day and night), but they change it at request with a pool view room, that was just fine. Reception staff OK, like Nick or Teodor, but Christina could try a smile.
The animation team is excellent, without them the whole hotel would be worth nothing. Eternal gratitude to them for the fun, they have shown us really excellent performances. The room was spacious and comfortable, the bathroom is demanding. In the common areas - restaurant, reception - was not, or only sometimes was the air conditioner turned on; before we selected the meal, we were perspiring. There was in the elevator 31 degrees. The ****- was not found anywhere, the dishes were in the oil, the Hungarian stomach doesn’t like it. The " food choice" has always been similar. We went to another hotel in Bulgaria, which is ***, but its restaurant - so the foods are also - by comparison, with many stars were better. Hardly anything we ate at the hotel, all inclusive price paid was a waste of money. The majority of staff - thanks for the exception – were apathetic, except for a waiter boy and except especially the animation team members! They were excellent!
the hotel for bulgaria was one of the best over there and the food again by bulgarian standards was good the all inclusion deal for drinks coffees pizzas ice cream ect was excellent
the facilities....room, spa, gym, pools, etc.
A good point had the design of the hotel-good for pictures:) the pool area was big and clean with nice chairs and tables, perfect to relax but the water needs to be heated ;). The weithers were kind and smiling but it wont hurt if they try harder:) .I liked the large rooms but the bed cover needs to be cleaned and the shower door fixed. Good idea with the shops around the hotel, they helped my mood for the claudy day:P The food was dissapointing compared to other places Ive been, but I m defenetly a picky person, however the vegetables are not boiled well and the chicken not friend enough, but I had the buffet variety and I got to end full all the time.
Great hotel facilities,good location, friendly staff. We had really good 2 week break.We have older kids and they could be very independant from us because of the facilities and location to beach and shopping etc Thought the buffet prices for non board guests was expensive.40lev for evening meal . Too expensive!!!! I think someone should keep a better eye on the gym.No shoes and young kids using it unsupervised! But thats just two tiny things. Over all it was fab!!!
1) had to wait 2 hours for room even though hotel was empty. 2) TV didn't work. Had to wait 1 hour while TV was replaced and then 2nd TV was fixed. 3) A/C didn't work. 4) Jacuzzi was cold - didn't work. All in all the stay was a joke
very nice rooms, very nice pool the hotel is not on the beach and NO rooms with sea view. Access in the rooms not from the reception, only from outside of the hotel
Nice swimming pool The hotel lost my reservation and I had to wait some time to get the room. The dishes in the apartment in the kitchen were dirty. The room was definitely not 5 star. Although it is located not far from the beach, it has no beach facilities of its own - you have to pay for the deckchairs and umbrella.
nice rooms, nice lobby and other public areas no minibar, charge 15bgn to bring a bottle of water. lobby smells of restaurant during lunchtime
Great location. Pool area was excellent with huge main pool. Activities every day (we stayed in July) - water polo, water volleyball, petanque, shuffle board, kids mini disco. If we ever go back to Sunny Beach, we'll most likely choose this hotel for our stay. The lifts didn't work all the time.
very confortable room, impresive pool, the best choice for accomodation in Sunny Beach the restaurant' staff was not enough trained - moving very slow
The room was big, clean. Good breakfast. Friendly staff.Had parking space in front of the hotel. Overall great value for money.
good value, brand new facilities, close to the center and beach. breakfast and dinner was good and rich. air condition in the room was not wrking, only white "garden" chairs and tables as furniture. No curtain in the shower. The area in front of of the hotel is not very clean and could be more well-kept
good position, not very noisy, good breakfast unconfortable rooms, very dirty, for this price i got much much much better, i reccomend just as a last solution.
staff, not far from beach, comfortable cleanlines of covers and towels
during my stay at Tia Maria Hotel I did enjoy the apartment I reserved, big rooms but not a view which I could like. I didn't like the meal, it was very poor. I didn't like the fact that the towels were changed at every 3 days and not dayly and that the cleaning personal was not so eficient.
It was central. The poolarea.
- kind staff, clean room, good service - noisy street
pets its allowed The room wasnt clean and a lot of ants , far away from the beach, the breakfast was very poor and very fat.
The hotel is new, well furnished and located in the park area very close the the city center. SPA is very good and not expensive. There is very nice swimming pool area with a sea view. The food in the restaurants and its variety is poor.
Excelent hotel comparing to a good price! The food in the restaurant ala carte is superb! I've seen a lot of hotels in Bulgaria but this is definatly one of the best. They charge normal prices on the minibar which is also really ok!
Quite simply the best hotel we have stayed in. The spa area is quite simply magnificent. Not in the liveliest of area's however.
Muhteşem konum, muhteşem bir bina, profesyonel bir ekip, enfes yemekler... Kendi evinizin konforu, özgürlüğü ve güvenliğinde konaklanabilecek, sahip olduğu tüm yıldızları fazlasıyla haketmiş bir otel.. With one word; magnificent! It is as in its name "grand primoretz" I wish all the rooms would have the sea view. The rest perfect.....
Perfect luxury hotel with very friendly and helpful staff. The food in the restaurant is excellent with combination of friendly and good English speaking waiters. The location is perfectly quit and in walking distance (5mins) to the city center. Parking is not a problem here!
At hotelet ligger veldig sentralt til både sentrum og strand Gjelder det forbedringer syns jeg at servicen spesielt under middagen kunne blitt bedre.Det var så mye gjester der på en gang at vi slet med å få bordplass.Det hendte at vi måtte droppe middagen pga at vi ikke fikk bordplass.Dårlig med rene hankler på rommet.Samme og høy musikk på uteområdet hver dag var støyende.
The hotel was very well located, right on the beach and in the centre of the Sunny Beach area. Having the all-inclusive food and limited alcohol package was very good value (although the "wine" included could hardly be called that). Although the food was included and the selection on offer at the buffet restaurant was quite extensive, the food was generally quite bland and dull. Staff were sometimes (not always) a little rude or unhelpful, but that is unfortunately the standard in Bulgaria.
Good location, excellent food, very nice stuff, fabulous view if you take the sea view room
We liked the attention given by the management. Chocolates on my birthday which were unexpected. Room upgrade and champagne because of our 30th Wedding Anniversary. Very good. The food was good but on occasions should have been hotter. Perhaps a selection of both cold and hot meals could be available.
