Booking.com Guest Review GuidelinesTo keep the rating score and review content relevant for your upcoming trip, we archive reviews older than 24 months.
Only a customer who has booked through Booking.com and stayed at the property in question can write a review. This allows us to verify that our reviews come from real guests like you. Who better to tell others about the free breakfast, friendly staff, or their comfortable room than someone who’s stayed at the property?
We want you to share your story, with both the good and the not-so-good. All we ask is that you follow a few simple guidelines.
We believe review contributions and property responses will highlight a wide range of opinions and experiences, which is critical in helping guests make informed decisions about where to stay.
Contributions to Booking.com are a reflection of the dedication of our guests and properties, so we treat them with the utmost respect.
Whether negative or positive, we'll post every comment in full and as quickly as possible, provided the guidelines are met. We'll also provide transparency over the status of submitted content.
We'll use the same guidelines and standards for all user-generated content, and for the property responses to that content.
We'll allow the contributions to speak for themselves, and we won’t be the judge of reality. Booking.com’s role is to be a feedback distributor for both guests and properties.
Guidelines and Standards for Reviews
These guidelines and standards aim to keep the content on Booking.com relevant and family-friendly, without limiting expression or strong opinions. They're also applicable regardless of the comment's tone.
Contributions should be travel related. The most helpful contributions are detailed and help others make better decisions. Please don’t include personal, political, ethical, or religious commentary. Promotional content will be removed and issues concerning Booking.com’s services should be routed to our Customer Service or Accommodation Service teams.
Contributions should be appropriate for a global audience. Please avoid using profanity or attempts to approximate profanity with creative spelling, in any language.

All content should be genuine and unique to the guest. Reviews are most valuable when they are original and unbiased. Your contribution should be yours. Booking.com property partners should not post on behalf of guests or offer incentives in exchange for reviews. Attempts to bring down the rating of a competitor by submitting a negative review will not be tolerated.

눉We couldn't sleep because of the mosquitoes. The fitness didn't work even though the web site said other wise. The food wasn't very fresh and qualitative. The restaurant didn't work without previous online reservation.
눇The location was excellent. The room was comfortable. The staff was very polite.
September 21, 2016
눉Food, cleaning. No TV signal...
눇The location, the panorama, the decorations, some of the employees attitude, great for family! Even the wedding on Sunday evening was great, discreet, not disturbing us! The aparthotel ideea, with kitchen for small salads prepared by ourselves.
September 4, 2016
눉The room was horrible to start with, a panel of the ceiling was missing, as well as a part of the wall where cables were easily accessible. There were three narrow wardrobes, one of which turned out to be accommodating the water heater. We did end up bitten by at least 5 generations mosquitoes since there were no insect screens on any of the windows which is, needless to say, cruel when vacationing with 2 children. To top it all, there was a wasp nest which had made a home on the balcony glass shield. Considering the above, it came as no surprise to us that the bathroom window (not tinted glass of course) was with a direct view of the parking lot.. there were no shower curtains around the bathtub.. We did get a TV receiver on the forth day of our stay after numerous requests, wishful the children can enjoy at least a decent cartoon while recovering from the mosquito bites which we limited with sprays and creams. Must have been our lucky day since it was then we received the third towel and the extra sheet we initially asked for right after checking in. In regards to the dining options and food quality (both the half board and the a la carte menu items), it was simply basic, not inedible, yet just.. basic. Overall, highly priced considering the conditions and personnel efficiency. Would not recommend this - hostel in bad condition - experience to anyone!
눇Perfectly located a couple of minutes walk from a beautiful beach and the exceptionally pleasant to visit beach bar Verano.
September 1, 2016
눉Poor quality of food for breakfast. Cheap-looking and dirty restaurant. Poor technical condition. No appliances and no dining table in the studio, meaning you get a double room for the price of the studio. A waste of a beautiful piece of land.
August 6, 2016
눉It needs a better management, the staff is trying to cope with problems but seemed to be alone. Many things in the hotel need repair, like lamps, sockets. The lift was out of order quit often which was a problem when you have luggage and live on the 5th floor.
눇The location is really good. 2 minutes away from the Sea. Rooms are comfortable, beds are good. Breakfast plenty of choice.
August 5, 2016
눇This is a hotel in an excellent location, steps from the beach. It is intelligently designed and furnished and relatively well maintained. An exception is the gym which is totally abandoned. There is no beach area associated with the hotel and guests have to pay hefty fees for umbrellas and beach beds every day. The breakfast is disorganised, always lacking necessary utensils, cups or food items. The coffee machine is turned off strictly at 10 am as if to punish late risers. The booking.com site did not allow a change of the reservation dates within the free cancellation/change period with no good explanation. A one-way deposit was charged at the time of booking, although that was not made sufficiently clear in the booking process and the reservation was with free cancellation period. I wondered what would have happened with that money had I cancelled.
July 27, 2016
눇Excellent location, good restaurant, vlean and quiet, a lot of interesting places nearby, between 5 and 25 km. Old center Sozopol, Dyuni beach, Ropotamo river, Beglik Tash and the exceptional and easy trip to the estuary of Ropotamo river and beach (amaizing place), Primorsko and Perla beach, so a lot of exceptional places for everybody. Extraordinary place, one of the best, maybe the best, on Bulgarian seaside. Thank you.
July 25, 2016
눉The studios weren't very clean, there was mold in the bathroom. The rooms were moist and smelled bad. The linen wasn't that clean. There was no fridge in one of the studios and when we asked for one they brought it early in the morning, entering the room without permission. The parking lot was extremely small and uncomfortable. The hot water comes from boiler which is not enough for two people. They gave us only one key card per room but you need one more for the electricity (and the boiler) to be working while you are not in the room. Sometimes the key cards couldn't unlock the door. The food in the restaurant was awful. There was hair in the food constantly. The arrangement for breakfast was very uncomfortable and the choice of food was poor. The staff was rude and inadequate. They tried to charge us for one more parking day and there was fee for everything.
눇Location, it's very close to the beach.
July 13, 2016
눉The food was the lowest quality ever!!! We preordered dinners which were looking like and tasting like student's canteen food, and with only two variants to choose from.
눇The location of the hotel. It's very close to the beach - just across the street.
July 5, 2016
눉The staff doesn't know English but they tried to do their best in understanding us. The food served at breakfast is cheap and you'd better not expect a 3* quality. We've also bought the dinner via booking.com(9euros/person) and we did NOT like it. They served a Bulgarian menu, with only 2 available meals. We wanted a money refund, or at least choose only one dish within the price range. Well ... none of these were possible. Also, the food was even worse than breakfast, and served cold. You can eat better on the beach. Do not buy in advance the menus presented.
눇Great pool and bar. Great location. The beach is very close to the hotel(you will have to cross the street and walk for aprox. 3mins). The hotel has clean rooms. The staff is friendly.
July 4, 2016
눉The room smelled like mold. Walls were damaged. The shower didnt work properly. Bathroom door couldnt close. The included brekafast was disaster. Half of the dishes were empty. There only water, no juice.
눇Receptionist was great, very helpful. Same goes for the handy man, who helped me open my door. The pool bar guy was very helpful as well.
June 30, 2016
눉Very rude receptionist not a bit helpful at all. The apartment that we booked is capable of accommodating up to 4 guests and we were given just one door card. The lock of the apartment door was broken and won't be able to open with the door card, we asked for a spare door key and the receptionist refused to give that to us. The toilet inside the room basically is a see-through design, whoever outside can see everything happening inside the shower/toilet. It's awkward enough even for a family. We were complaining about this and asked for a curtain, the receptionist just simply said will fix this for us, but nothing happened even till the day we checked out. There's only one air-conditioner in the apartment (in the living room), not inside the bedroom, not even a fan, basically sleepy in the bedroom through a hot summer without AC as if sleepy in a sauna room. The fitness facilities can be ignored, basically none of the gym equipment works. Spa always closed when I was there.
눇The swimming pool area was nice. Breakfast was simple but efficient and the staff member in the restaurant was very polite and helpful, she speaks perfect English. The housekeeping lady doesn't speak a word of English, but she has been very helpful and tried helping me with open the apartment door with that stupid door card.
May 26, 2016
눉The room had some leakage in the hot water heater and shower faucet that may have been early season challenges after the winter. I reported the problems and the staff took care of things very adequately.
눇the location is great across the street from the beach and a short drive to Sozopol. Staff was helpful.
September 13, 2015
눉wish the room to be more clean. No lights in front of the hotel and parking!
눇the location is great, breakfast was very tasty. the staff very kind,beautiful beach. we will visit again for sure!!
August 17, 2015
눉Of the 5 nights i stayed there, my room as cleaned once. Wifi signal was erratic
눇Just a few yards from a stunning beach. Pool clean and warm if that is more your thing. Food available in the restaurant was of a good quality.
August 16, 2015
눉Small things in the room, not working, locks on doors had previously been broken.
눇Location cannot be beat - across the street from the beach for daytime activities and 10 minute drive to Sozopol Olde Towne for stroling and wonderful dining.
August 7, 2015
눉Low quality of the materials Low usability: sockets in wrong places, a/c is the living room and not in the bedroom, no shower curtain, not easy parking access
August 6, 2015
눉During our stay were not negative things.
눇Great location , quiet and clean hotel room, very good selfcatering facilities, Swedish buffet breakfast. Very friendly staff. Free internet access and parking. Nice to excellent sea view rooms! Excellent location & holliday! Thank you!
August 2, 2015
눉Free parking means park in the back of the hotel, dirt road and not really a parking lot. To park in front on the hotel you have to pay. I think the place is done nice, but the stuff has to improve on cleaning and maintaining the place.
눇Great location, nice furnished studios and swimming pool. Steps from beautiful beaches and just 3-4 kilometers from old city Sozopol.
August 2, 2015
눉This is may second year in this hotel and this time I came for longer, with a car. My first review was way more positive but after spending 5 days at the hotel I would want to point out the following to the management and potential visitors: The main receptionist is pretty annoying person who hates his job in his guts. Whenever you ask him a question he would wait for 30 seconds before he answers. He would not great you, he would not look into your eyes. He will pretend you are not at the desk. Rest of the staff were nice. The free parking is a disgrace. Forget it if you are with a sports car. The hotel has a very nice parking which they charge money for. It appears that parking is their primary business. Gym is even worse than what it was last year. This thing is never cleaned. There is one new device(boxing punchbag) and some of the broken ones are now gone. Punchbag was blocked most of my stay because someone stacked chairs in front of it. When someone cooks in their studio all the rooms get to have the smell - horrible. Breakfast is substandard. There were ants in one of the dishes for 3 days. Finally someone told the staff so they can remove it.
눇There is a punching bag in the gym. Pool is very nice. Rooms were clean and most of the staff were trying to be helpful although not always successful.
July 31, 2015
눇Absolutely perfect location, one of the best beach in Bulgaria, absolutely great, natural, good restaurants. Very good and clean room. Easy way to Sozopol, there is a shuttle from 100 m from the hotel (near Miramar hotel). Only 2 levs / person. There are also taxies at the same price. If you don't want to use your car. Good parking - if you book a parking place, payed. If not, a little difficult during the day, not each day.Good excursions around the location (Agalina cape, Arkutino natural reserve, Dyuni beach, Ropotamo, Maslen cape, Beglik Tash, old Sozopol, Ravadinovo).
July 23, 2015
눉Some times random people entered the room. For 7 days stay they never changed the sheets even when we asked them to... Food in the restaurant is not fresh... twice we ordered meat that smelled really bad.
눇It close by really nice beach. Pool is nice. Staff is nice. Rooms are ok.
July 18, 2015
눉Staff seemed very unhelpful and the food served from their restaurant was very poor. Ordered a mohito cocktail, they had run out of mint and it tasted like toilet cleaner. Bathroom sink also blocked. You have to pay 8 lv a day parking even if you are staying there.
June 23, 2015
눉the free parking isn't very nice, the good parking is actually paid no matter if you are a guest of the hotel
눇Rooms - spacious, bed comfort was good
August 23, 2016
눇Very nice place. I`m back
August 22, 2016
눉So many Moskitos in the room. Couldn't sleep at night as the room was fool with them. Also, bathroom shower head was broken.
July 17, 2016
눉No water ! Bed was firm .
July 10, 2016
눉Definitely not clean weak internet slow employees small swimming pool
July 5, 2016
눉The TV wasn't working + the electricity in the living room. We had to wait till next day to be fixed, which gladly happened.

October 22, 2014
눉The head rceptionist was totally unhelpful! Left us 2 breakfasts 1 in doggy bags! No swimming pool, no restaurant! They offered to have a meal sent over from Burgas!!!! When we complained their stock answer was, You didnt ask if the swimming pool was in use, or the gym or the sauna, we did ask for a special table on our joint birthdays night they didnt tell us the restaurant was closed!!!!! We didnt want a refund! We wanted an apology! We were the only 3 guests in the hotel, booking .com did not do their job properly! Someone should have told us the hotel was shut down for the winter! So you did ask I have told ! Be wary of booking.com and very wary of booking into the South Pearl Apartments!!!!!
August 29, 2014
눉The wi-fi is not working in the rooms, so if you need to use it, the lobby is the only place where you can do it.
눇The location was amazing, the hotel room was clean, the staff was very helpful and the pool was excellent. We had a great time!
August 28, 2014
눉There is a fine line between dirty and clean - never quite sure on which side this hotel was. Bathroom in a terrible state. Strange smell in the room, wifi not working, parking is narrow and crowded.
눇Close to the beach, quiet.
August 28, 2014
눇Everything was excellent. We had a wonderful surprise as we booked the executive studio an we were upgraded to one bedroom apartament. This was our second year at this hotel and definitely will come back again.
August 26, 2014
눉1. Air cond is loud (more than 50db) and it blow hot air to the room without conditioner 2. Apartment size (family suit) is not 72 meters at all it is 40 meters. So this is fraud. 3. There is no air conditioner in bedroom. 4. Leak on the walls with mold (everywhere in the hotel) and in my apartment too. 5. Room is clear but a lot of dust on the top of furniture. 6. I found someones hair on the flour in bathroom. 7. Bathroom is very little. 8. Table spoons was dirty. 9. There is no antimosquit doors 10. On the terrace and kitchen only 2 chairs - this is family room for 4 guests! 11. Refrigerator for family is too small (2-3 bottle of water max) and not cold inside. 12. My son find opened porno chnnel on tv 13 gym is poor and dirty
눇1. The best beach in bulgary with clear sand and water and without starwing croud of tourists. (I was in sozopol, nesebar, sveti vlas, sunny beach, ravda etc. This is the best). 2. Nice restaurant 3. Little but good pool 4. friendly stuff
August 21, 2014
눉The hotel dirty, staff indifference ,sauna was not working, the space of massage miserableThey dont change bed sheets ,curtains does not exist
눇swimming pool is excelent
August 19, 2014
눉The gym had like 6 things in it 2 of which not working properly.
눇The staff were very nice and helpful all the time. Location is pretty good - very close to the beach but not on the beach itself. They've got a nice pool which is open even at night time. The bed was really a big one and the room was spacious.
August 18, 2014
눉The parking is a nightmare (there are not enough places for all guests. You have to go out of the car to press the button to exit the parking. The WiFi was not available in our room. The cleaning staff was not really dedicated to their job. Some things were broken or dirty in our room upon checking in (Like the shower and the bed linen). It is a good hotel, but I do not think i will visit it again, since there are better alternatives for the same price.
눇Location is very quiet and opposite to Kavaci+Smokinya beach. The hotel is generally good but it looks as if it has been abandoned by its owners.
August 15, 2014
눉В апартамента с две спални трябва да се сложат задължително климатици в спалните. Персоналът в кухнята на ресторанта е недостатъчен. Паркингът е малък и неудобен.
눇Хубаво място. Страхотен плаж. Спокойно. Апартаментът беше просторен със страхотна гледка.
August 13, 2014
눉the parking lot was too small so not all of the guests, including us, could park their cars there. The kitchenette did not have even elementary equipment, there was no water boiler, no frying pan, etc. The kitchen corner was next to bedroom and its lights went on an off with movement sensors, so when somebody went to toilet through it in the night, the lights would be on for quite a while without a possibility to turn it off. TV was not working half of the time. The cleaning lady either did not come at all, or visited us during the afternoon siesta.
눇It was located near the sea and had nice swimming pools
August 5, 2014
눉Small parking place, nearly impossible to charge your gadgets, small fredge, remote control tv not working. Food- expensive and bad.
눇Very close to the beach
July 23, 2014
눉I love this part of Sozopol area! However the hotel is the last place to stay. Room - I received not cleaned room with guest Inside!!!! I thought that was a joke! Wifi in rooms above 1st floor- forget about it! Restaurant- i not recommend! Not fresh, and You have to wait veeeeery long time for dish. Poor quality for high price. Additionally Restaurant garden with super parking view instead of sea. Breakfast - nothing special. Better option is to eat something in apartment or in the nice beach bar with sea view. Swiming pool - is nice only on the photo. It is placed next to the parking, so You are able to take a sunbath and touch Somebody's car in the same moment. Staff - one or two people with average english skills. If You have to explain something e.g. Your invoice, payment- You can forget about it - worry yourself! Generally they are really nice and smiling when everything is ok. When you have a comments, complaints they are not able to do anything. Manager is never reachable!
눇Location is ok - calm & silent surrounding, hotel in front of the sea.... however.... beatwen the hotel and the sea is busy road, wheras in the hotel description and on the photos you are not able to notice it - Classic example how to cheat potential client! 5 points for photographer' s skills.
July 23, 2014
눉The parking - to get out of your car in order to inform the Reception to lift up the ramp to access the very small parking only to find out that it was impossible to park without blocking at least 3-4 other cars from exiting. Breakfast quality was rather poor.
눇The location, the quality of the free WiFi and the size and the furniture of the apartments.
July 27, 2014
눉Wifi very very very bad Many guest had to use stairs and lobby. Not suitable
눇Location to beach
May 27, 2014
눉Everything was alright
눇The location is very close to the beach. It is very quiet.
