My impressions from Grand Hotel Varna 5 *, St. Konstantin and Elena, Bulgaria
After revolutions in Tunisia and Egypt, and prices for holidays in Turkey grew, it became obvious that the people of Central and Northern European countries need an adequate alternative. In other words, you need a vacation in a country with a developed tourist infrastructure, a certain minimum of attractions and affordable prices. I'm talking about Bulgaria, which are so fond of resting in Eastern Europe, Germany, UK, Sweden, Norway and Denmark. However, I was in Bulgaria with my family three times, going back in fourth and I can say that the best place for family with children you can find.
Today I would like to tell you about the Grand Hotel Varna 5 *, which is located in the town of St. Constantine and Elena - the oldest Bulgarian resort, located near Varna – the second large city in Bulgaria. In this hotel you will relax in the system All Inclusive, and the price will include not only food but also local alcoholic beverages.
The hotel has two swimming pools - indoor and outdoor (in case of bad weather). The pool is a bar and a large number of beach beds with very comfortable mattresses. At least a third of hotel guests sunbathe on them all day. In addition to the pool at your disposal a very Mighty gym, parking and ground tennis courts, which enjoy great popularity. I can also say that the hotel is located near the old football field with a good lawn, but for unknown reasons we not allowed to play there. If you want to dance - it's not a problem, on the ground floor there is a disco bar. With animation all very well: on site is a lot of interesting events, including concerts and exercises in the pool, most of the organizers can speak English, German, Bulgarian and Russian languages.
Bulgarian cuisine is famous for its meat dishes, salad “Shopski” and well cooked fish. All this can be found in his hotel and I can vouch that your food will be very good.
Grand Hotel Varna is a member of the eponymous hotel complex. Beside him there are four other hotels - Dolphin 4 *, Dolphin Marina 4 *, Lebed and Rubin 4*. At the Hotel Dolphin 4 * is working a kindergarten/ Personally I was very pleased: in any case, my children often didn’t want to come back home. Next to the kindergarten playground is a huge trampoline, maze, slides and swings.
Rooms at the hotel are very good, although not so luxury as in the old hotel in Switzerland. Rooms are cleaning every day, but if you want your room cleaned really well, leave the cleaners $10 as a tips.
The sea is just 5 minutes walk away, while you have the opportunity to choose one of two beaches located nearby. One of them sandy and there are so many people. On the second lot of stones, but you can always find an empty seat. Also nearby is the city alley shop, where, among other things to eat, children ride the rides and to change money (the change should be only in the building of the bank, which is located approximately 50 meters from the hotel and in any case not in the form of dubious kiosks ).
