Comments for Hawaii Hotel Nessebar
NessebarKatherine | 1 out of 1 found this review helpfulJust returned from a weeks stay at the hawaii and there are both positives and negatives about the place. The plus side first - The pool area is fantastic, big, clean and the bars are manned by friendly and helpful staff. The food served there is great especially salads - yum! The staff speak fantastic english and were helpful whenever needed. Our room was large with two balconies overlooking the pool and the sea with a view of sunny beach and Ness old town which was beautiful. We had the fridge (so useful!) and free air con (SO useful) that have been mentioned before and our room was cleaned more or less every day. Now the downside ([+]view more) - The beds have to be the most uncomfortable things i have ever slept on - resembling a cot and absolutely tiny, they creaked and groaned all night long and we lost lots of sleep everytime one of us turned over. I ended up pulling out the bed on the floor as it gave me more support. I unfortunately discovered though on doing this that under the bed hadnt been cleaned for what looked like months. Dirty socks and general mess - Yuk! The breakfast that came with our stay was not pleasant and nowhere near the standard of the outside bar which we thought was bizarre. The location is too far out in my opinion, not near enough to the old town for those who like great food and wandering the streets and nowhere near sunny beach for those who want nightlife without staying in bulgarian benidorm. I wouldnt go back but thats not to say it was horrible. I guess the lesson is that you get what you pay for!Was this review helpful to you? YesNoNessebaremma.harris-coyne | 1 out of 1 found this review helpfuljust as a follow up to my other comments, i thought i'd say I went back to the hawaii three weeks ago and it has been totally refurbished - there are now fridges, phones and free air conditioning in every room, and all the bathrooms have been re-tiled,. new sinks put in and everything painted or wallpapered. and as for the food, its amazing, so much better than before. would recommend this to anyone!!!!Was this review helpful to you? YesNoNessebarEmma and Julie | 1 out of 1 found this review helpfulWe stayed at the Hawaii June 05 and loved it. It was my 1st time there and my mum Julies 4th time at this hotel. We have already booked to go back this June and cant wait. Yes, the rooms are standard, but as we spend our time sunbathing by the pool with the company of the excellent staff, we are not bothered about the room. We found it clean and it served its purpose for what we needed. If you go with a relaxed attitude, its not a problem. See you all soon !!!!!!!!!Was this review helpful to you? YesNoNessebarEmma Harris-Coyne | 1 out of 1 found this review helpfulI have stayed there twice now, once in 2002 and once in 2004. I think it is a brilliant hotel in a really good location, not far from the good shops and nightlife but peaceful enought that you get a good nights' sleep. Apart from an infestation of korny bugs, which was not something that could be controlled, it was great. Yes its basic but that is what you pay for, and as for someone commenting on being left once they were off the bus - oh come on how hard is it to walk up to the front desk with your travel details and check in? It has undergone recent refurbishment so I expect that a few things will have changed for the better, as ([+]view more) the decoration in the rooms was slightly dated!! The staff are lovely and friendly, and speak very good english compared to most bulgarians who speak none. I love the hotel, and i'm going back there in June and plan to do so for many years to come.Was this review helpful to you? YesNoNessebarstef | 1 out of 1 found this review helpfuli went to hotel hawaii last year and i must admit i enjoyed it so much we are planing to go back thisyear! i must admit the rooms are in need of some refurnish but for the price we wernt complaining.
we found the staff friendly and befriended a fair few of them. the breakfast we had in the morning was always tasty and overall i cant agree with any comments people have made. if you want 5 star you pay 5 star you pay three star and thats what you get!!Was this review helpful to you? YesNoNessebarEdith | 1 out of 1 found this review helpfulStayed at the Hawaii for 1 week from 4 September 2004. The twin room we stayed in was appalling, the furniture was falling apart, wallpaper was peeling off the walls and the balcony should not be called a balcony. We were most unimpressed. Old Nessebar was lovely. If I went back to Bulgaria I would stay in a 5* hotel, just to be on the safe side. I would advise anyone wishing to go to Bulgaria to do the same.Was this review helpful to you? YesNoNessebaramanda | 1 out of 1 found this review helpfulthis hotel is basic! u pay for what u get, the rooms are old faishoined, dont use the phone because even if you try u get charged for! the shower is awfull the water goes every where. the pool is ok and the people are rude dont get ur hair done in the hair dressers they cant even speak english. if u go stay at sunny beach it well better the hotels are bran new and everythink is there! when gettin a taxi make sure the driver says a price before u get in or ur get ripped off!Was this review helpful to you? YesNoNessebarg parker | 1 out of 1 found this review helpfulEcho most other comments. Twin room absolute rubbish but given time spent in the room could put up with the ancient furniture and failing decor. 2005 hotel is being renovated, don't knoiw how they can do so much work in such a short time. Staff were friendly, bar staff excellent. Beware the manager who sits on a stool behind the bar and does nothing but tries look like a model. Someone should tell her about mutton and lamb! Drinks dead cheap. Pool good but beware sunbeds cost money.Was this review helpful to you?

YesNoNessebarSusanne | 1 out of 1 found this review helpfulHotel listed as *** should not be listed at all. Corn beetles 1-2 inches long every-where. It is a real culture shock. Basically clean, but falling apart. Lots of people had things stolen from their rooms, cell phones, watches etc. (Things you normally don't put in safety deposit box). The beds in all rooms are a wooden frame, and our beds where rotting away - bits falling off daily. Staff friendly enough, pool area nice, but that is it. Money changed in hotel but price a little lower than other hotels. Hairdresser, shop, and doctor on site. If you get put in the hawaii 11 next door, you willl luck out, they have TV, fridge, and AC. ([+]view more) Would not recommend this hotel at all, truly you need to pay for upgrade, before you go. If you ask for upgrade after arrival, you will have to pay big time. Location is fine for old Nessebar and Sunny beach.Was this review helpful to you? YesNoNessebarnatalie | 1 out of 1 found this review helpfulhotel hawaii very poor from outside, reception area nice, family rooms are stunning bt twin rooms are terrible, hard beds and the toilets were one small box room with the shower just hung on the wall and the whole bathroom getting soaked in the process, also cold showers. The pool and bar area are lovely. The food was generally rubbish unless you get up early for breakfast! In our experience all of the staff were extremely rude and in one case very violent towards children. But apart from all that nessebur was a great place to stay and i would go back again!Was this review helpful to you? YesNoNessebarKim | 1 out of 1 found this review helpfulPool area very nice. Reception area quite good, rooms very basic. Our bathroom was not cleaned for 2 weeks (except the bin being emptied), we were on a high floor and our balcony was not usable for sitting out on. Food was basic but ok. Staff are friendly. Ignore the surrounding areas and spend your time in Old Nessebar as it is much more interesting (if you ignore the numerous tourist tat shops.) Would recommend you visit Bulgaria soon before it becomes too touristy.Was this review helpful to you? YesNoNessebardarren | 1 out of 1 found this review helpfulVERY basic hotel. Generally clean. Food not too good. Excellent pool. And MOST of the staff are friendly, except the woman who runs the restaurant. Generally a good hotel. ENJOYWas this review helpful to you? YesNoNessebarallan giles | 1 out of 1 found this review helpfulFirst sight is not too good. A bit worn and tatty, might even cause you to want to go straight home when you arrive at 3.30 a.m. However, when you get used to the basic but clean room, it's not too bad. Maid service very good - bin emptied, bathroom checked every day, towels changed every second day, bed linen changed at end of week. Pool area excellent, could not want for more. Buffet breakfast provided huge selection - cooked (not too hot as is the Bulgarian custom), cereals, fruit, bread, rolls - something to suit everyone. If you can put up with a basic, not too smart room, then this should suit you. Otherwise, look for ([+]view more) 3 star. Helpful, pleasant staff. Money changing facility in hotel.Was this review helpful to you? YesNoNessebarandy mollison | 1 out of 1 found this review helpfulbasic but clean food not covered a bit unhygenic friendly staff nice poolWas this review helpful to you? YesNoNessebarEllen Parton | 3 out of 3 found this review helpfulThis hotel has little to merit it, apart from a fairly nice pool. The rooms are functional but drab, and in a two week stay, our bathroom was not cleaned once (unless you count emptying the bin). Its situated in the new part of Nessebur, which is synamous with building sites, stalls selling beach paraphenalia, and little else. The staff however are friendly, and its only a short stroll to the altogether much more pleasant streets of (bustling) Old Nessebur.Was this review helpful to you? YesNo
