Comments for Alba Hotel Sunny beach

Nadine | 2 out of 2 found this review helpful Directly convenient in the center. The beach is 150 meters from the hotel. Since the hotel is in the middle in the center, purchase and maintenance possibilities are in direct proximity. The room was very largely, equipped with refrigerator, TV, balcony, air conditioning system, Bad/WC, hair dryer, hire safe, telephone. The room cleaning is not to be criticized. Staff was very friendly and also multilingual. A restaurant and hotel bar, which opened already in the morning. Meal was always plentifully present and the quality was quite large and various. The kitchen style ([+]view more) was international, whereby the breakfast was very English aligned. There was no animation. Massage is offered in the hotel (and at the pool). Purchase possibilities are directly before the door, just like numerous bars, restaurants and Disco. The beach is cleanly, couches and screens rentable against fee. Was this review helpful to you? Yes No Irene | 2 out of 2 found this review helpful The hotel situation does not lie so favorably, since the disco noise is so loud, but that is described with the hotel. Meal was very well, staffs very friendly, each day fresh towels. all in all a successful stay. Was this review helpful to you? Yes No Madlen | 1 out of 1 found this review helpful The walls in the hotel are very thin, so that one can hear the neighbors.: ) However if you like to make party, the situation of the hotel is optimal. The party mile is direct before the door. The staff is always friendly and helpful. We had a beautiful vacation despite some sleepless nights. The weather is simply fantastic. Much fun in Bulgaria:). August 2010 Was this review helpful to you? Yes No Sandra | 1 out of 1 found this review helpful We stay in Alba hotel in July 2010 for 12 days and was successful vacation. The meal was good and it participated for each taste something. The staff was always very friendly and had good language skills. A room change was good. The air conditioning system works very well. The hotel is much central and it gives good traffic routes and purchase possibilities. The charwoman surprised us nearly daily as it from our towels of swans, flowers etc. We will come surely in the next year again. Was this review helpful to you? Yes No Petra | 2 out of 2 found this review helpful To the beach there is about 3 minutes walking. Shoping possibilities around the clock. At the beach there are many pleasant surprises, like for example Parasailing, banana boat, jet ski and much more besides. A trip is worth for the example the place Nessebar or the aquapark. The staff is very friendly. Our air conditioning system did not function with the arrival unfortunately, but after message at the reception, this was repaired immediately. The rooms are large and very clean. There was even a refrigerator, TV and a safe in the room. The quality of the meal did notleave desires. Much selection and daily different meals. Was this review helpful to you? Yes No Laura | 1 out of 1 found this review helpful The beach lies only very few minutes away from the hotel. Just opposite is a supermarket. The trip possibilities are given however most offer apply for the "young" to parties and bar routes. Was this review helpful to you? Yes No Bruno | 2 out of 2 found this review helpful The hotel Alba lies in the center of the sunny beach. The beach is reached after about 100 meters. The beach is ideal for children. In the proximity of the hotel there are some supermarkets, where you can buy everything. In the hotel pool is good. The meal and the selection of the meals were good. Staff of the hotel were very friendly. The rooms were always very clean. Vacation in the hotel Alba was completely successful. We guaranteed to come back. Was this review helpful to you?

Was this review helpful to you? Yes No amanda gomm | 1 out of 1 found this review helpful hotel very clean, and tidy, rooms lovely, swimming pool very cold. food nice could of been hotter food very much the same all week. staff very friendly, hotel in good situation not to noisy, it was my first time in bulgaria loved every minute of it will most likely be returning next year very cheap prices. Was this review helpful to you? Yes No davies | 2 out of 2 found this review helpful having spent 2 weeks at this hotel we found the food atrocious. the hotel was good, but if you like cold greasy fried eggs for breakfast, this is your place. the evening meals were nearly all cold soups, and again cold greasy stews, we complained to the rep, the dining room staff, the duty manager and the main office of Bulgarian Holidays only to be told that this is the way bulgarians like there food.
thank goodness there was a good restaurant on the other side of the raod serving hot bulgarian and english food. this hotel has put me off bulgarian holidays for everand a day

Billy | 2 out of 2 found this review helpful My partner and i along with her eleven year old daughter have just returned from Sunny beach, we stayed in the Alba and we can give this hotel 10 out 10. The hotel was spotless, meals were good, always something to eat, as both breakfast and evening meal were buffet style. Staff very friendly, and our maid was excellent, clean towels every day she even took the time to make a swan out of a towel and placed it on top of Jennifer.s bed beside her toy dog Snowy. I can recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to go to Bulgaria on holiday, we are just back two days and we ([+]view more) have already booked for next year, as for the resort itself. (Brilliant) cheap to eat out and have a few drinks, John Silvers cocktail bar makes the best Malibu Beach Babe Cocktails in Sunny Beach. Was this review helpful to you? Yes No Yvonne | 1 out of 1 found this review helpful My husband & I stayed in the Alba in August 2004, we found it to be clean, rooms were spacious, staff very friendly, pool cleaned and checked every night, food was good we didn't always like everything on the menu but we always found something to eat. It's in a very central location in easy reach of everything you could want. The only down side we found was that if you didn't get up early and be out at the pool for between 8 and 9am you didn't get a sun bed, although it does say in the hotel rules that no sun beds can be reserved certain nationalities think that they ([+]view more) do not have to obey the rules, the hotel management did nothing about the situation. Although this was annoying it wouldn't stop me from staying there again. We have been holidaying in Bulgaria for the past 8years and have found this to be the nicest hotel we have stayed in.

cheryl | 1 out of 1 found this review helpful I stayed in the hotel Alba in July 2004, i highly recommend this hotel to anyone who enjoys a relaxing holiday during the day and a wild night out during the evening. As a young person, me and my friend stayed at this hotel for two weeks and staff were very friendly, the hotel was very clean and rooms were spacious. Excellent pool, very clean. this was my first time staying in the Alba but I have been going to Bulgaria for the past 15 years and really must say that this was the best hotel I've ever stayed in. Close to the beach for getting a great tan with Bulgaria's ([+]view more) wonderful weather, and not too far from bar's and nightclubs!! This would also be a great hotel for families, as at night you can't hear anything and kids would love the hotel facilities. Hope you have as much a wonderful holiday as I have for the past 15 years and am already booked for naxy year! Was this review helpful to you? Yes No Yvonne | 1 out of 1 found this review helpful My husband, myself and our granddaughter have recently spent two weeks in Hotel Alba. We found this hotel to be very comfortabl nice and clean. The bedroom was quite spacious even with a third bed and there was a daily maid service. The bathroom was nice and towels changed every day. We liked the fridge in the room which came in handy for cooling drinks. Plenty of wardrobe space. The food we thought was nice but the breakfast is not typically English breakfast - more continental with a choice of both hot and cold food. Plenty of choice of main courses at evening meal. ([+]view more) Service was good in that used plates etc were quickly taken away. The hotel is very well situated in the centre of the resort. We would certainly go back to the Alba and personally would always book 4 star hotels in Bulgaria to be sure of a comfortable stay. Was this review helpful to you? Yes No Maz | 2 out of 2 found this review helpful Just returned from 2 great weeks in this hotel. Everything was just perfect all but the music in the bar at night as our room was directly above, so no peace till after 1 in he morning. Sunny Beach is the perfect place for a differant holiday everything is so cheap and you have a job to spend your money. one tip never ever change money in the white booths youll get done! Were booking again for next year soon. And by he way balkan air have started serving drings on the plane,and they take the leve to purchase goods in the duty free in Bourgas airport although the reptells you differant. Was this review helpful to you? Yes No Mai | 1 out of 1 found this review helpful My boyfriend and I just spent a week in this hotel .The aircondition worked so well we were freezing, the top- and bedshets are made up as they are, due to the fact it is too hot to sleep with anything but sheets (see comment below). The food is clearly meat for many guest, and tolerable but not excellent, but definately ok. The cleaning was so good, I would have taken the cleaninglady home to clean up my own apartment.......and the staff were very friendly and capable. The music from the establishment at the poolside is - as written below - ongoing - but after about ([+]view more) midnight it is always turned down considerably - I assume Sunny Beach in general has rules regarding music, as the music was not very loud anywhere but in discos, after midnight. I highly recommend this hotel for your stay, especially after having heard friends horror-stories about one-star hotel, or even two-star, in Sunny Beach. This hotel perfectly lives up to western comfortable standards. Was this review helpful to you? Yes No Allan Robertson | 1 out of 1 found this review helpful My wife and I arrived home on 11/6/2004 from a splendid two weeks at the Alba.
Despite unfortunate choice of accomodation last year we decided to return after having seen the Alba during our visit.
The rooms are very comfortable and food excellent and although perhaps not geared greatly towards Scots the staff were very pleasant.
One of our favourite haunts was a small bar called Bobby's which is beside the Hotel Diamont only two or three minutes walk from the Alba.
The weather was not at its best during our stay but this has not dampened our enthusiasmabout the place and the people we will be back in 2005

Heather | 1 out of 1 found this review helpful I returned from the Hotel Alba at the beginning of July 03. This hotel was fabulous.  It was spotlessly clean, rooms were great (wall to wall carpeting), tastefully furnished with plenty of COATHANGERS.  The balcony was fully double glazed cutting out any late night noise and the staff very friendly and helpful.  We found the food really good with a huge selection - even my 10 year old son (diabetic and a picky eater ate well).  The pool was lovely thought there could have been a few more sunbeds and the dining room had plastic ([+]view more) poolside chairs although eating on the patio was very pleasant.  Sunny Beach was a great resort - shopaholics paradise - and very, very clean.  We shopped til we dropped the second week and still came home with £250.  The beach was lovely soft sand and crystal clear water and there was plenty for the kids to do day and night.  We have booked to go back to Sunny Beach next year and would recommend the Alba to anyone.  The main down point we found with or room was that rooms at the end of a terrace had a small space at the end of the balcony which had no railing.  THIS WOULD BE EXTREMELY DANGEROUS to a family with a small child (my 14 year old daughter could squeeze through it).  Bulgarian people are so friendly and are not 'in your face' when you go into their shop/stall.  Best buy has to be the street artists, you can take a photo with you or they will take digital pics and you choose the one(s) you like and they will do a portrait in either b/w, water colour or oils. The talent is amazing and the prices very reasonable.  Worst part of the holiday was the Balkan Holidays flights.  The planes seemed to be quite old and there were no alcoholic rinks at all.  A bit of a shock if you like to to start your holiday with a couple of light refreshments!!  A very safe place for children as the main parts of the resort are pedestrianised and there is very little traffic.  10/10 for Sunny Beach and 9/10 for the Alba Was this review helpful to you? Yes No s taylor | 1 out of 1 found this review helpful my husband and i spent two weeks from june 7th at this hotel. the rooms were lovely comfortable and clean . our bed was made up for us on our arrival after that only the bottom sheet was fitted the top sheet was left folded on top of the bed not what we have had in the past from a 4star hotel .  our room looked over the pool side of the hotel there is a disco at the bottom of the grounds  so the noise went on sometimes till seven in the morning .  we were h/board the breakfast was reasonable but sometimes  finding  condiments ([+]view more) was impossible there was not enough for all the tables . dinner at night was awfull  not any night in the two weeks was it ever hot .  we ate out at lunch time in nice resteraunts  and did our best with what was on offer  at night .this was the worst dinning room i have ever eaten in .we have travelled the world  i cannot recommend the hotel alba  lots of staff training needed there.   Was this review helpful to you? Yes No Martin Farrance | 1 out of 1 found this review helpful My wife and I stayed at Hotel Alba in June this year. It was comfortable and clean. The staff were helpful and the food good (buffet breakfast and dinner).
There is a charge of about £2 per day for the room safe. If you like sun on your balcony at the end of the day ask for a room at the front of the building (ei facing Hotel Kuban) The in room mini bar is, in fact, an empty fridge, which is ideal as there is a shop next door to the hotel for supplies!
The hotel is ideally situated in the centre of the resort.
Check out time is 12 noon.
