Sunny Beach Report

Hi all Been home since beginning of August and am just getting round to typing this report now. Sorry it's taken so long but here goes. We arrived in Sunny Beach(4 adults, 2 kids aged 12 & 14) late afternoon on the 21st July and the weather was fantastic. Having been last year we were not looking forward to the wait for our luggage but Bourgas Airport seemed to be a lot better this year and we got our luggage and were on our coach within half an hour. Stayed in the same hotel as last year (IBEROSTAR SUNNY BEACH RESORT) and it was just as good if not better, they even have their internet club up and running which was a good addition for the kids. On our arrival at check in we were all given a refreshing glass of orange juice, just what we needed after a hot coach ride. As we were admiring the room and balcony view there was a knock at the door and there stood 3 members of staff, one holding a huge amount of fruit all wrapped up in a bow the other guy had a bottle of wine and glasses and the other had fruit knives and plates and a card which welcomed us back to the hotel. A nice touch and a great start to the holiday. First stop was the lev bar and then to see Billy at Billys Bistro which we frequented every night the year before so ther was hugs all round and we met up with lovely people that we met last year from Holland and home also. It was great to see them all again. The Hotel food was great with a good choice for everyone and they still have sweets to die for. Only had breakfast a few times the 2 weeks we were there as we stayed at Billys too late but what we had was just as good as last year. We did notice however that the hotel was a lot busier this time and we often found it hard finding a table. Rooms were cleaned daily and the third day there we arrived back to our room and noticed the maid had placed a lovely rose on our dressing table. The only downside to the rooms are that the showers still leak so make sure you put down some towels on the floor before you shower. Don't expect a sun lounger while there, they are still hard to get and to be honest we couldn't be bothered getting up at an early hour to get one, you see the same people on the same ones every day i don't know how they do it. Shops seemed to be just the same with all the fake gear but once again the kids loved it and came back with a load of stuff (we had to buy another case) and like the stuff they bought last year, seem to wash really well. Went back to Nessebar and it is still as beautiful as i had remembered it, we took the bus there and the boat back which was a bit choppy but good fun. Went to the beach a couple of times a managed to get loungers no problem and my daughter and i had a go at the paragliding, had never done it before so plucked up the courage this time and am glad i did, it was great fun and couldn't believe the amount of jelly fish we could see you also got a great view of the resort, think it cost us 70lv for the 2 of us. The cost of food and drink hasn't changed from last year we still found a lot of places giving you a beer for a lv we even found one near the market that was only 80 stinkies. Went to D Jannys, great food great service but go early or you won't get a table also had a couple of good chinese meals also. Did't ever have a bad meal out and none were expensive. We were invited to Billys (bistro) birthday party where we were given shopska salad (yummy) and main courses of different meats (even more yummy)and plenty to drink. He had a huge cake (the size of 2 tables)which was delicious and needless to say it was another late night but we all had a fantastic time and we hadn't spent a penny. To sum it all up the weather was great the people were great and the food and drink was great as was the hotel. Another fantastic holiday in Bulgaria, looking forward to going back. Andrea
