Couple from Paisley, United Kingdom Aug 2013

My wife and I stayed here from 12 to 25 August 2013. Reception were very quick to book us in, having arrived in the early hours of the morning. The downside was that someone from reception woke us early as the previous guests had apparently left something behind. They should maybe have checked with the cleaners first, as we did not find anything in the apartment which should not have been there.

The apartment itself is equipped exactly as described and has everything you need for the duration of your holiday ( although a mop would be useful). The sofa bed, whilst not uncomfortable, is very noisy whenever you turn and can be a struggle to get out of due to the frame. We did not convert this to a sofa at any stage of our holiday and would prefer to see a conventional be in its place. You spend most of the holiday outdoors, so a sofa is not really required.
It was nice to have a coffee percolator, as I dislike instant coffee and this allowed me to have a freshly brewed coffee each morning.

The balcony furniture is uncomfortable, there is no lumbar support from the chairs.

The only complaint on the accommodation was the flooding of the bathroom every time you showered, as the screen has been incorrectly fitted and water escapes.
The additional complaint is with the standard of the cleaning. Whilst this had obviously been undertaken prior to arrival, it was of a low standard. The glasses, cutlery and crockery had to be washed prior to use, due to food and drink residue. Whilst this may be down to the previous occupants, the cleaners should ensure that they are clean. There was\is also a plastic drink container under the bed and dust where this has not been pulled out for cleaning. The cupboards also had to be cleaned due to substances being spilled and not cleaned. The owner will obviously have to take this up with the management.

We were due to have a mid-stay clean, but the cleaners did not arrive. due to the afore-mentioned standards we cleaned it ourselves on a daily basis.
We also did not receive fresh towels at any time during our stay. We had to wash the towels ourselves to freshen them, this was not an issue for us, as we generally wash items to re-use during our holiday, but feel that as this is supposed to be 5 star accommodation that this should be addressed.

The sun loungers around the pool are uncomfortable, as no cushions are provided.

The complex is not 5 star in our opinion, due to a number of issues such as the lack of cushions on the loungers. The pool is 5 star standard and the gardens are lovely. The complex is kept clean around the gardens etc, but falls short in areas which I would expect from a 5 star establishment. I would rate this as a 3.5\4 star. but it could easily be improved upon to attain the 5 stars.


Family from Nowy Dwór Mazowiecki, Poland Jul 2013

Worth to visit. Really recommend.


From Bialystok, Poland Aug 2012

Absolutely great place to have a rest. Wonderful pools, room looks like on a pictures. Everything that needed was provided. Beach close to complex not big but at least not crowded. For 20 Euro/day you can get all inclusive. Restaurants in town offer great food and drinks.


From Croydon, United Kingdom Aug 2010

We stayed for a week at the Emerald Resort and were very impressed with the accommodation and the services the resort has to offer. The room was functional and clean, with a kitchenette available for you to make your own snacks plus the shops were only a short walk from the resort which was very convenient. The resort itself offered excellent sunbathing with a lot of sun loungers available and bars and restaurants for lunch and dinner. The spa is very luxurious and offers a wide range of treatments which we enjoyed immensely. The staff were very helpful, and the long hallways and airy lounges ensure that the resort has a relaxed and quiet feel. The short drive to Borgas airport make the resort very convenient, we would recommend and definitely go again next year.


Julia from Moscow

This is a nice apartment to stay for two people. If necessary, may place a child in a chair-beds. The room is not exposed to direct sunlight, which favorably affects the day time rest in the room. View from the window on the tennis courts and a green lawn with trees. In addition to the refrigerator and electric hob has coffee maker and a kettle. In the room there is a possibility to connect to the wired Internet. Coming back from the beach is convenient to use elevators, which are located in the most convenient areas of the hotel. In the evening you can relax on one of the three adult pools. If you come with your child, as we do, you can use them with 4 childrens pools and a childrens club. I want to note the wonderful kitchen which is prepared at the nearby restaurants on the main street.
