The food was amazing
We get a large room and large double bed. Only 5 min away from the beach. Food was pretty basic driven by cost but acceptable.
Room was not so clean and not well ventilated. No mobile window. Not so many grilled meat. More attractions for kids.
Double purpose of this hotel: Inner pool for impared people, even with sauna. Also fitness room, massages... Like in spa. And two pools outside, in their garden with huge trees: There are sunbeds, umbrellas and even a life-guard. We had all-inclusive (red bracelet), so we used the two bars a lot: at the pools and inside the lobby. But nobodz checked that at the dining room. (at least I did not notice) They claim they are "friendlz to children", that is the second purpose. There are evening dancings for children and all interested, from 8 PM, just after the dinner. The beaches there are rather nice flatty, even far from the shore: Safe for chilren and easy swimming. There are two hotels in the same complex in fact: Connected by a "tunnel" on the 1st floor. They even share the same reception and dining room. There is an orthodox church/monastery right beside the hotels: Eponymous to the village. Cheap, easy and reliable transportation to Varna by the public bus, their city-transportation. (1,6 lev, from 7 years)
No private beach for this hotel: You will have to take a walk to get to anz of beaches. And those are often paid, so we were kicked off one such beach, to go elsewhere. The sand there is full of mini-shells (OK) and cigarettes. The foods are just limited: only 3 types of meals, but the best one is gone quickly and then they do not bring it, only the common ones. Better desserts was just once during our week, and the common ones I did not like. Culture of the people, the other guests: There were lots of people from regions close arround, so Belarus, Russians, I guess even a Mongol, by the looks? So even the hotel is adapted to their culture and standards - which are different than ours. Culture of the hotel: Some years ago, the hotel was nice and new... I believe it was shiny. But nowadays, there grew up more hotels arround, closer to the beaches, and more luxurious. So Estreya got in background. It is behind its zenit already: Slowly falling appart. (noticeable in details) - I would not invest in that, as I do not see any perspective. And obviously they don't neither. Sad story. Culture of the people, in the hotel: They are just digging gold, from their guests. Over-priced transfers from the air-port, the "hotel taxi-man" claims to "have monopol for this hotel", and the hotel manager, the lady, just supports this configuration: A real cartel deal. And you shall pay that! And even the prices arround: Taxis are even more expensive than in capital city 2'000 km on the west. The car-rentals the same. In sum: Better omit the whole Black sea area, go to Turkey, Bari-Italy, or even Hurghada, and you will get better services and relaxing experience for the same money, than here. Sad.
The breakfast was OK. The location is great. The beer was ...foam !...
5 days out of 7 there was water on the bathroom floor.
Great location close to parkland, acqua house and stylish beach. Hotel has superb well cared for gardens. Staff helpful especially at reception. Wine shop linked to hotel offers a good selection at great price.
Limited lifts in hotel, making travel between floors a little slow at busy times.
