Excellent experience
Amazing place to rest and recharge. Excellent for young family with small children. Lots of activities around.

Third consecutive visit
Nice hotel, my third visit in three years. Nice and clean, very warm and comfortable but always a few snags - broken light bulbs, missing tiles, radiator not properly screwed to wall. Nothing major to put me off and I'll be booking again for next year, probably not half board though as the food is a bit luke warm.

Great time in Borovets
Awesome hotel and staff. It's a bit tough to find as there are not a lot of signs. Otherwise location was great and so were the facilities. Staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. We found out that May is low season for them and thus a lot of the shops were not open in the area. Other than that we still had a great time

Very Good8.0
Bit of a trek to the slopes and ski rental places, but doable

Festa Winter Palace, Samokov
The stuff at the hotel was really nice. The gourmet restaurant wasn't gourmet at all. The level of all of the meals that we tried was 0 (and I am polite). The massage was very good.
