One year on from our previous stay at Hotel Kristal we were treated once more to a great family holiday.

The lobby and main bar area has had a makeover and looks very chic and modern and also the restaurant has...

When you see the pictures of this hotel, with the nice lobby, pools and pretty large rooms, you might think you're up for a treat. But you're wrong. You're wrong because on top of all that, there are the services who complete a 4 stars hotel. And this is not a 4 stars hotel. The staff from restaurant and bar...

Had lovely holiday at the Kristal, rooms were very spacious and cleaned everyday, had everything you need. Staff and communal areas great. Food was lovely and available all day somewhere. Only downside was lack of English information as everything written in Bulgarian or German. Not enough sunloungers but this was mostly to people putting towels out but not using till...

The hotel itself is very well kept and managed, clean and nice looking. Rooms are big enough, each one with a balcony. Bathrooms big, everything inside in good working order. Good towels. One big minus: there's no light over the mirror to see your face when shave or put on the make-up. The only spot light is above, in the...

We spent one week in Bulgaria and stayed at Kristal Hotel. The hotel was ok, but not a 4 star hotel. It was more like 2-3 star hotel. We had all inclusive and it was nice. There was always breakfast, lunch and dinner for free. Also snacks, ice cream (only one hour in the afternoon), soft drinks and local alcohol...
