I've now stayed in Steve & Shirley's apartment every year for the last 4 years. I don't have children and always go just before UK school holidays - and it is fantastic! The apartment is modern and exceptionally well looked after, and has everything you need to make a self catering holiday relaxing and comfortable. The surrounding amenities, beach, marina, restaurants, shop for self catering are first class. There are plenty of restaurants to choose from - the question is always to find the one you like the best! St Vlas is only 10 minutes walk away - very pleasant for an evening stroll and look around the shops. Sunny Beach is 3-4 miles away and I've walked it many a time. Sunny Beach is a much busier resort than the Diamond Resort in St Vlas, and a place that I prefer to dip in and out of. If Steve & Shirley's apartment is available, I am intending to visit it on annual basis.
Fantastic time, lovely apartment - complex brilliant - could almost hop into the 25 metre pool from the patio doors! Kids, teenagers, had freedom to come and go to beach which is only a 2 minute walk away. Plenty of choice for places to eat in other complexes and the village struggle to spend more than £30 for the 5 of us with drinks! Tended to avoid the 'European' prices on the marina but a lovely walk down there amongst all the bling! Recommended.
Been to Bulgaria every year for the last 6 years, lots of other people from Britain there too staying on holiday, beach and two swimming pools on the doorstep of our apartment as well as other shops, restraunts, water parks and much more.
I've been to the apartment twice. Once with the family in the summer holidays and once with a friend in May.
The weather was fantastic both times. The facilities are excellent and the view is stunning and there are many and varied restaurants in the complex. The town centre is only a ten minute walk away and the old town of Nessebar is well worth a visit. There are two great waterparks nearby and the go-karting track is brilliant for older kids.
All in al an excellent holiday!
August 2011 and 2008 - Great location, lovely well kept apartment with all mod cons. View is stunning and the weather was superb. We cant wait to go again. We loved St Vlas and the Marina and Sunny Beach is far enough away to dip into for excitement, but enjoy the peace of the complex and resort. Lots to do for all in the area.
I have been for the last 5 years. The location is fantastic, apartment has sea views and could not be more conveniently located for access to the pool, pool bar, marina and beaches. Everything is within easy reach. Every year the local management company improve the resort and it is pleasing to see additions in eating places and improvements to facilities.
The resort itself is quiet and well maintained. People are friendly and there are so many good places to each including many beach restaurants.
In the evening a stroll around the Marina and a drink (or two) in the beach bar is a great way to end the day.
Bulgaria remains very cheap to eat and drink and even in places like the big water parks you won't feel like you are being overcharged for sustenance.
Apartment accommodation is to a high standard and has everything you need for a comfortable holiday.
Overall, highly recommended - go for it...
