    Holiday in 4 days by Jennifer Nicolson on 02 Jun 2011, 07:59
    I am trying to contact Elenite holiday village as we are staying there on Monday and i would like to arrange a birthday suprise for my partner. Does anyone know the number or an email address?
    QUESTIONS ANSWERED by Chris.k on 09 Mar 2011, 16:49
    Hi , wonder if anyone can tell me how far the water park is from the holiday village. Also are the bungalows two storey per family. We just thinking about booking for next July !!

    Hi Donna,

    The Water park is at the entrance to the holiday village and depending on were your room is no more than a 5-10 min walk. The bungelows are not 2 story to my knowledge but are larger rooms and can sleep a family of 4. Hope this helps.

    Hi we have booked to stay at the Royal Bay Hotel 13th June for 2 weeks. I have two questions that I would be grateful for any help on.
    1. My Dad is in a wheelchair with limited mobility, I have noticed that they have disabled rooms/facilities but what is it like around the resort for wheelchairs...

    We found the resort flat and has ramps but not the best layout due the the hotels being bulit on the side of a hill so make sure you fit if pushing a wheelshairs !!! there are a lot of steps upto the reception of the holiday village but ramps are in place around the resort but all up hill.
    2. Can you use any of the hotels under the all inclusive.

    You can use all the bars in all the hotels but you must use you own hotels restaurant, there are various snack bars which are part of the all inclusive.

    Hope this helps.

    JUST RETURNED by CHRIS.K on 08 Sep 2010, 15:57
    Hi All

    I have just returned from 14 nights at the Elenite villas and have to say wow what a great resort, the hotel is excellent yes the food is not 5 star but me and our party of 17 (aged from 1 - 55) did not go hungry. The food is served warm as its the way the locals eat, its not a problem as there is a microwave. No one in our party suffered from any form of sickness from eating. We did not try the al la carte restaurants as was impossible to book no matter what time we cued in the morning as the system they have in place is not very well organized but the sozopol restaurant was very popular and had good reports from other guests I spoke to in the hotel. We ate out at pacos outside the resort and was surprised how good the food was and how cheap it was but please don't let its looks put you off its very friendly and great food. The drinks and beer was good. The hotels is located about a 15min taxi ride away which cost on average 20 lev each way, we did manage to get a deal of 15 lev and booked the same driver back. The staff in the hotel are not rude but they do struggle to understand as shock horror they talk Bulgarian, our group took the time to learn a few words like please and thank you and this goes a long way. Please go to this hotel and enjoy like we did, we are talking about booking for next year. If you want any further information message me and I will try and help :)

    You are doing the right thing Chris, go with an open mind. Don't expect 5* 'cos it isn't, but it's great value for money. Try the Irish bar called Morris' which is under the Royal Park at the end of the shopping centre. We only discovered this time that it's part of the all inclusive and makes a change (Don't confuse it with the Frigate Irish bar 'cos that's not all inc)the air con is good in there and there are never queues as not many know it's all inc.
    Elenite holiday village by chris.k on 17 Aug 2010, 17:21
    Not sure if anyone has seen this lots of information about the hotel all inclusive package.

    only 5 days to go :) by chris.k on 17 Aug 2010, 10:37
    only 5 days to go, am going to go with a open mind and looking forward to going will post my review when i return.
    Another great holiday by Anth on 15 Aug 2010, 17:28
    Just returned yesterday from Elenite for the 3rd time. It was better than ever. Myself and my wife and two kids found the food fine, if a little repetative but it was better than the previous two years we had been and we were with other families who had also visited before and also noted an improvement with the food. The entertainment was much better than last year and for value for money, facilities, cleanliness and sunshine this place in my opinion can't be beaten. I'll be happy to answer any questions anyone has.
    Thanks Dawn by Chris.k on 06 Aug 2010, 16:04
    Thanks Dawn most helpful :)
    elenite by dawn on 05 Aug 2010, 22:38
    i will be happy to answer anyones questions. A lady who was there the same time has set up a fb group. I can only go on my experience as other people on trip advisor enjoy it
    elenite by dawn on 05 Aug 2010, 22:20
    There is a kids club for the villas but it is mainly russian and german kids who go. My 6 year old daughter went to the t shirt making in the animation hall at 7 a t shirt. They told me to come back in an hour. I was shocked as after she had been there 35 mins they told her she had finished and to go and find her mother. She had walked from middle of the resort to end looking for me.
    elenite by dawn on 05 Aug 2010, 22:11
    If you havent already booked dont pay extra and go elsewhere. This is a cheap all inc and u get what you pay for. My kids didnt eat for 2 weeks as they are fussy eaters. There are also ongoing problems with power cuts and no back up - see trip advisor
    elenite by dawn on 05 Aug 2010, 22:07
    In reply to Chris. I have just returned. Some people think its great others hated it. I suppose it down to personal experiance. I went for 2 weeks on 12/07/10. If you have kids in a buggy take the lightest pram you can. Pack plenty of snacks in case you dont like the food. Pack plenty of nappies and fly spray. The resort shop is really expensive and their is nothing outside the gates so you are stranded. We had no electric for 48hrs and food poisoning. Check the meat before you eat it. Pakkos is the only restaurant take a left outside the gates its about a 5min walk. A meal cost around 45 leves 23 for 5 with drinks. Dont have ice in drinks. Its not fantastic but better than the food in the resort hope this helps. I think a lot of people are complaining so hopefully it will improve by the time you get there.
    Due to arrive 23rd Aug 2010 by chris.k on 05 Aug 2010, 10:37
    I am due to arrive on the 23rd aug for 14 nights with my family and friends then to be joined our 2nd week by more family and friends. Have read some really bad reviews latly on the hotel, such as undercooked food ? has any one just returned and come offer some advice ?
    ELENITE VILLAS by DEBORAH on 26 Jul 2010, 09:41
    Thanks by Anth on 25 Jul 2010, 17:52
    Thanks Elenite Lass, we are going Sat 31st, looking forward to it. Is the entertainment still in the big hall because on another website someone said it was being held outside? There was the odd night when it was held in the ampitheatre beside the Royal Park last year? The only thing that I felt let the holiday down last year from 2008 was the entertainment so I am pleased sone of the old entertainment staff are back.
    Water park by Elenite Lass on 23 Jul 2010, 14:17
    Anth, don't know if I have missed you but we are just back from Elenite last week (our 4th visit) You can use any hotel bar, and pool bar with you bands. There is a new fountain in the centre of the village. The animation team are better this year as several of the ones from previous years are back. Hope you have a great time
    Water Park Elenite by Elenite lass on 23 Jul 2010, 14:12
    The water park at Elenite is good for everyone it costs 25 leva per day per adult and 5 leva per sunbed and 5 leva per parasol. You can opt for the All Inclusive pass whcih gives you access to the complex and entitles you to food and drink at the complex from 8am till midnight, food and drinks are payable in the water park even with the AI option.
    Waterpark by Anth on 14 Jul 2010, 22:11
    Yes the waterpark is open to the public but not sure how much it is. You can get on public transport from Sunny Beach. It's a good waterpark with plenty of slides for younger children and a big wave pool. It's got a pool bar, chaning rooms and a small shop selling snacks. When we were there last year they were putting finishing touches to what looked like a cafe which I think was accessible from the waterpark.
    Water park by Jo on 14 Jul 2010, 20:00

    I was just wondering is the water park open to the general public, if so how much is it ? I am staying in an apartment in SB and I am looking for a small waterpark for my daughter with no extreme slides etc
    Stuff to do by Anth on 08 Jul 2010, 12:21
    Hope you have a greay holioday Christy. There are loads of things to do for your age group. The Aqua park is a must, it's free (other than the sunbeds and parasols) and has some great slides, i'm sure you'll spend hours there. There are also 3 other pools in the complex, 1 next to the coffee shop where you'll find the ice cream bar (loads of lovely flavours, not just the basic chocolate, strawberry and vanilla) along with snacks available throughout the day. There are pool tables and table tennis tables, internet cafe at the Royal Park Hotel (for MSN and facebook!) and a video games arcade. There are 2 other pools based at the Royal Bay and the Royal Park hotels. There is a great mini golf course and tennis courts. The beach is fantastic and there are watersports to do there, although only the pedalos are free. The entertainment team are fantastic (at least they were the last 2 years we have been) and they are on the go most of the day with loads of activities, I would recommend that you join in, you'l love it and they'll be your best friends by the end of the holiday! On a night there is a mini disco and most nights there is some sort of show in the entertainment hall. All in all it's a great place for kids, my 2 boys were 4 and 8 last year and are so excited to be going again this year. I'm sure you'll have a fantastic holiday.
    Sorry by christy on 04 Jul 2010, 18:00
    Sorry, i am going on Saturday 10th
    Question by Christy on 04 Jul 2010, 17:58
    What is there to do for 12 year olds? And how long does it take to get to the hotel from the airport?? Please answer going on Friday 10th
    Waterpark by Anth on 24 Jun 2010, 18:15
    I'm not sure if the name of the waterpark, I think it is just classed as Elenite waterpark. It is included in the price of your Elenite holiday and is a good park, it never gets too busy. You do have to pay for beds and brollys but it's still worth it and to be honest sometimes it's worth just keeping your free bed around the other pool and taking a towel and spending an hour or so on the slides. All in all this is a brilliant holiday village. You will find the most complaints are about the food, but the quality is good and the food well cooked, but the Bulgarian's don't like their food as hot as us. The animation team work really hard and my kids loved them, on a night and in the kids clubs. The quality of the shows is not great for adults but again my kids thought they were fun and as long as they are happy us parents are too. This is our third year in a row at elenite in 2010 and I can't wait to get there. The value for money is excellent. Don't expect 5 * because it's not, but if you want a very safe, clean and fun filled family holiday, that's exactly what you'll get. Enjoy.

    Back again 2010 by Anth on 06 Jun 2010, 22:42
    This is the 3rd year we will be visiting the Elenite Villas having had brilliant holidays in 2008 and 2009. Can anyone who has just come back confirm that your band still gets drinks at all bars other than the Aqua park and how was the evening entertainment? That was the only (slight) dissapointment last year from the previous year when it had been great (although mainly for the kids)Also anything new for 2010?
    atm by monkeymoo1 on 04 Jun 2010, 21:47

    villas elenite by kirstie on 30 Aug 2009, 19:54
    i have just come back from villas Elenite which is a brilliant resort. The villas are very clean and you get fresh towels everyday. The food is not great but is still edible. The only food that changes is the food at the far end. The pool is very clean but very cold evan though in the sun. The animation team is fantastic they entertain you at night and in the day playing lots of fun activates. At night people play football on the beach. The beach is very warm most days but can be choppy at night. the excursions are brilliant. We did three, the Off Road Adveture is one of the best. You fly off the seat in the jeep most the time. The other two were good but not brilliant. I would recommend two things that you do not do the Blue Moutain trip because you need to pay for the cable car ride which you have to do which is extra 5 lev for children and 10 lev for adults. I would not recommend this resort if you have small children in prams or walking difficulties as there are millions of steps to get to the beach the water park and more.
    elenite holiday village by lorraine on 09 Aug 2009, 11:54
    hi all just got back from elenite stayed in villas had a great time, 16 of us went altogether ranging in age from 60's to 6 months had a great time, villas were always clean any problems were dealt with immediately by reception staff. although loads of steps to villas did manage to fine ramps at either end of complex although a bit further to walk with buggy was much easier than steps. Kids had a great time although ours are only 5, and 2 not a lot to do in the evening if children older. Entertainment team very good during the day our little ones are still shouting yellow team all the time as they orgainse an olympics day and everyone gets into teams and play lots of game great fun, although this is only once every two weeks.
    Food not excellent but edible, always found something to eat. We did book into the a la carte restaurants where you can go to each one once a week although you do have to queue fom 9.30 - 10.00 to book these it is worth it. Rooms are cleaned every day, and clean towels given.
    Although everywhere does close at midnight apart from the nightclub and the irish bar where you have to pay, we were normally too tired by this time to worry about it as we were so busy during the day.
    Water park is excellent, our kids would have been there every day if they could
    although the drinks and ice creams are very expensive priced at about 2 lev but stickers over real price inflating price to 8 or 9 lev most people refused to pay this.
    All i can say is overall we had a great holiday and would go back again but it is mainly for families would not really recommend it for singles or couples.
    Any questions please ask.
    ansers by Sarah on 28 Jul 2009, 22:27

    alecs review by pr on 28 Jul 2009, 03:49
    sounds like you had a good time.
    could the kids join in the shows at night.
    did they have games during the day for kids and adults.
    was the drink in plastic small cups or glasses and were they half or full pints.
    elentie villas by alec on 28 Jul 2009, 03:30
    We have just come back from the Eletine Villas a week now and looking to book for next year so can any one that is going there soon can they get me a number for to book the villas. Please do not listen to the emails about not to go. but the Entertainment was not that good for any kids over 15 and adults but we made our own so do not be put of about going and the food in the villas was good and the villas or not that off a walk to the water park. Would say if the befare the beach to the pool then you would love it as hate the beach but my family love it so i was never of it would now say that i will back on the beach when we book for next year at Elentie Villas . Sunny Beach is a most if your kids like g.star etc as they or very good copies and cheap and you can bargain the price down . Do not change any money other than the hotel or the crown in sunny beach or eat the fruit from any one in sunny beach as they will then want you to buy from them and will not leave you alone if you eat the fruit.

    hi all i cant believe some of these reveiws. i know everyone has diffrent tasts but the holiday village was not that bad. you have to make the most of your holiday and thats what we did. their is lots to do including the water park and bowling, you have to pay for bowling but its not that dear . my kids loved it. the food was not that great but always found something to eat and mostly all the food we ate was warm and freshly cooked. the room was a bit dated but spotless the maids came in everyday and changed the towels & washed the floors. we had a great holiday.
    p.s we are going again next year :)
    Reviews by Anth on 16 Jul 2009, 17:30
    This website has a few reviews on the Elenite Villas from this year and in my opinion are closer to the experience our party had last year. Worth a look and hopefully they will ease any worries you might have after reading some of the reviews on this site.

    Holiday by Anth on 16 Jul 2009, 17:10
    There were comments like the one just posted before we went to Elenite last year and we were worried, but decided to go ahead with the holiday. We all had a fantastic time, but especially the 4 kids who were in the group who were on the go from morning til night with all that the resort has to offer, with the pools, fantastic beach and brilliant waterpark, which is a major bonus. Yes the food was not brilliant, but we didn't starve and enjoyed it most days out of the 14 we were there and the kids never complained. The entertainment staff were great and worked really hard. I'll be amazed if the place has changed to such an extent from July last year. We go in just over 2 weeks and I can't wait. You get what you pay for at the end of the day and I thought it was outstanding value for money.
    holiday by peter on 16 Jul 2009, 04:38
    hi susan.
    was it really that bad.
    sholud i speak to my travel agent as we go in a few weeks time.
    it sounds like the rooms were very bad and not safe.
    any plus points at all.

    Dont Go Thereee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! by Susan on 16 Jul 2009, 01:20
    we returned on 13th of july 09
    went there in 2004 and it was fantastic the entertainment was perfect and nothing was to complain about in 2009 thats a different story we hade so many complaints to make such as.... food wasnt edible , rooms were damp and smelt
    my daughter left some chips which the maid should have moved they didnt disappeared till three days later when we had to remove them our selves, no towels toilet rolls and the boiler broke down , beer ran out way before closing time , its supposed to be all in clusive and there were 6 bars 3 you had to pay for , electrical wire were hanging out not safe for children. AND A WORD OF WARNING, dont go if you have a push chair , wheel chair or have difficultys in walking there are 100's of steps

    dnt be fooled by the beach staff they try and charge you for pedlo's and really they are free so DONT pay. #


    by the 2nd week in holiday we had permission to eat in royal park which was good but most off our speniding money went on taxis to sunney beach as the night life at the villas was rubbish and it also the spending money went on
    buying food

    if anything i would reccomend ROYAL PARK the staff abd the food are twice as good as elenite

    or even go to sunny beach resorts
    for Paige by michael on 12 Jul 2009, 00:57
    i enjoyed the holiday as i was with alot of my family withouth them it would have been unbearable.
    The local people i.e the russians ruin the place with their arrogance and lack of manners.
    As i am not one to let people barge thier way about i found it very hard to keep my mouth closed but had to as we were by far the minority.
    how was it? by paige on 12 Jul 2009, 00:46
    hello micheal i am just asking wheater u enjoyed the holiday because from ur report is sounds like u hate it!!!!is it worth going back to in ur mind and also is there a lot for a 12 year old who loves sport to do-and a 8 year old who loves mud,water and food he is in to basketball and swimming to so how is the waterpark
    thank u in advance for replying
    Just returned home this morning yeee haaa by Michael on 10 Jul 2009, 19:00
    well i am home and have never been sooo happy to come home from hoiday. The resort is lovely and very well laid out, very clean and nice to walk around.
    The food in the main restaraunt is very basic...if you don't like chicken or pork then like me you can live on mixed veg...i reccoment the Sozopol restaraunt.
    The place is over run by arrogant Russians who just barge their way about into queues....they even killed a dolphin on the beach.
    the entertainment hall is only open every second night and inbetween the entertainment moves to the beach bar at which drink is payable here.
    if you are looking to do a day trip i would definitely reccomend Nessebar, it is lovely and is nice to walk around with lots to see and plenty places to eat.
    any way not wanting to write war and peace so will leave it at that.
    oh just a quick note...watch out for the security staff, a scottish woamn was beaten badly by them, anothe guy from london was cuffed and held overnight for being too drunk.
    Alcohol by Anth on 07 Jul 2009, 17:01
    Yes the beer is included in the all inclusive. It's decent stuff as well. In the "ice cream" bar, lobby bar (on a night) and the restaraunt it's served in proper glasses, but for obvious reasons around the pools, on the beach and in the show lounge it's in plastic glasses. As long as you are not expecting 5* luxury I can assure you you'll have a good time, kids especially have enough to keep them entertained morning 'til night. We were there last year, we'll be there in 4 weeks time and have booked for next year and we have never been to the same place twice other than to Elenite Villas.

    Pools by Anth on 06 Jul 2009, 00:31
    We were at Elenite Holiday Village last year and had a fantastic holiday and me, my wife and 2 sons aged 8 and 4 are going again on 1st August flying from newcastle. My question from anyone who has been this year is, has there been a 2nd pool build built for the villas? I've been on the Balkan website and it looks like there is a pool between the Royal Park and the one at the "ice cream bar". Can anyone confirm? and if there is, does it have it's own bar, does it serve snacks? Also it looked like new slides were being added to the waterpark when we were there last year, have any more opened? The newest last year was the black hole ride. If you are a family with young kids travelling to Elenite I hope you enjoy it as much as we did last year. Fantastic place wih loads to do.

    Elenite by Michele on 05 Jul 2009, 01:53
    Sorry forgot to say that inflatables are allowed in all the pools. These are available in all the little supermarkets in the resort!
    The beer is similar to carling and the red wine is like a table wine. White wine is OK (we prefer the red!)
    Villas Elenite by Kay Kay on 04 Jul 2009, 23:33
    Hi, this is a question my dad wants to know! What type of beers and wine are there and soft drinks
    Thanks XxX
    Water park by Michele on 04 Jul 2009, 18:47
    The waterpark is excellent...something for everyone. It is only 3 minutes walk from th villas.
    Elenite by kay kay on 03 Jul 2009, 21:42
    What is the water park like, what is it called and how far away is it from the villas. In the pool is there any inflatables, toys water guns ect.
    Villas Elenite by Kay Kay on 02 Jul 2009, 22:32
    Thank you for answering my questions here are some more if you would not mind. are there shows at night that maybe we could join in at, what type of entertainment is there at night. What is the water park like and how faraway is it from the villas. In the pools are there any inflatables toys ect. What is the food there cuz i know it is not like here. THANKS XxX
    Answers! by Michele on 02 Jul 2009, 01:07
    What a lot of questions....I will try to answer as many as I can.
    Sports: - At the villas there is a daily aerobics session in the pool and waterpolo. On the beach there are organised beach volleyball games. At the centre of the resort is the animation hall with a large notice board. This shows you exactly what is going on when...sports and shows.
    There is always football being played on the beach in the evening.....just a bunch of kids playing! There is mini golf available and tennis courts but you need to pay to play ....don't know how much!
    There is a show in the animation hall every evening at around 8ish....have been to a few and they are very good.
    Icecream: At the bar by the villas pool is where you can get ice cream....they are lovely and lots of different flavours such as vanilla, choc, strawberry, mint, apple, parma violet!, coffee, caramal. Not all the flavours are available everyday but there is always a good selection.
    Food: The food is fine and tasty if you are willing to try things that don't look like what you are used to at home. There is always salad available and a variety of hots dishes...rest assured you will not starve!
    Villas Elente by Faye on 01 Jul 2009, 22:08
    Hello it's Faye, I was just wondering how tasty the food is. What type of games are there during the day. My favourite is gymnastics! I am so excited aboout going. Thanks XxX
    Villas Elenite by Kay Kay on 01 Jul 2009, 22:01

    thanks by paige on 01 Jul 2009, 21:15
    thanks for all the help probably will go thank you so much. i hope i dop love it by!!!!!!

    Elenite Village by Michele on 01 Jul 2009, 18:06
    Paige, please do not worry ..I am sure you will have a fab time. We normally travel with Balkan and they have a kids club but to be honest my children have never been that keen as they make too many friends by the pool and on the beach. The water park is great....childrens pool with smaller fun slides, a large pool for swimming in, large water slides (3 togther and 2 curly bumpy ones) New last year was a black hole type shoot where you drop out into a small pool, a slides where you go in a inflatable ring and hopefully a completed wave pool!
    Food is not english....but I am sure you will find something to eat most days....my children only really eat chicken or fish and that was available with either pasta or chips. Food is definately an area where they could improve but I can imagine this being a very hard task for the hotel as they have so many different nationalities to please. You are in a different country so be adventurous and try something new...you never know you may love it!!!!
    Please do not worry about the reviews....you may well notice that most of the negative reviews are from those staying in the hotels at either end of the resort not in the villas.
    Have a lovely holiday and do not worry....we are going back for the 4th time simply because my children love it so much!
    waste of money by peter on 01 Jul 2009, 07:29
    do not worry just go and enjoy yourself.
    have fun,has bad reviews in the past stopped you from haveing a good time.

    money by george on 28 Jun 2009, 17:42
    we are going in 3 weks time and i would like to ask if you can change money at the hotel as i have heard that you can only do this at the banks?
    thanks for your help and we might see you there (look out for the hearts beach towel lol)
    Just got back by Michele on 23 Jun 2009, 03:26
    Hiya all
    Came back on Sat 20th from Villas & already looking in2 booking next year it was amazin,we always go to Greece & been to Kos for the last 8 yrs but pleased we changed our mind this yr & from now on.It is soooo clean never seen as many cleaners anywhere b4,our room was right beside the beach twin with bunk beds no hairdryer,mam & dads rm nxt villa they had a hairdryer so depends,there is no dress code for the restaurant,food was a bit of a downer sometimes not hot but there was a number of complaints so it may change they had microwaves(3)but the last 1 broke last week you need them to heat the food up plenty to choose from we always found something we liked,but no good if you are a very fussy eater,not much actual kids choices.Sometimes not enough tables either,a number of staff were very nice but some were really miserable looked like they didn't want to be there.Weather fantastic, animation team amazin plenty of activities to do for kids, teenagers & adults.We all felt very safe here also.
    Cant wait to go back.:)))))
    For Sarah About the Noise by Louise on 22 Jun 2009, 02:08
    Hi Sarah, There's only 12 of us going from Glasgow on Monday 29th, but it's 4 adults and 8 very noisy children, so you won't be on your own with the noise thing. I'm sure it's all part of the fun. It is our first time going to Elenite as well, and I'm sure it will be great. I'll listen out for a noisy big group from Edinburgh when we're there and say hello. Apologies to everyone else who will be there at the same time as us(you may need earplugs).
    travel cot by michael on 21 Jun 2009, 12:19
    we are heading out on friday and there is a family in our party with a baby and they have been told to take thier own travel cot, but i think it depends on what size of appartment you have?
    elenite by leeanne on 21 Jun 2009, 05:17
    hi could anyone tell me if you can hire a travel cot from elenite villas, as the travel agents cant tell me and said i would have to take my own. traveling with a 6 month baby is bad enough but to carry this to would be to much i would be greatfull if anybody could help thanks

    holiday by Alison on 19 Jun 2009, 19:17
    Got my ticket leave Tuesday,have just checked weather it to be crap raining for the first few days. Whats there to do if there's no sun. Feeling really down. Just my luck it will rain most of the holiday.
    Elenite by Michele on 16 Jun 2009, 23:41
    Hi - There are no hair dryers in the rooms (or there haven't been in any of mine) There is an ATM (installed last year) just outside the reception area for the villas.....I have'nt used it so I have no idea if it is well stocked up.
    ATM Banks and Visa by Pearl Duffett on 15 Jun 2009, 20:57
    Is there any cash machines locally, or can you use visa in the local restaurants etc.?
    elenite villas by alison on 14 Jun 2009, 23:39
    Hi, Would like to ask a question regarding hair dryers, do you get one in the room? My brochure doesn't say and this web says you do just want to make sure.Thanks
    Long Trousers by Michele on 12 Jun 2009, 17:18
    You can wear shorts in the restaurants.....they don't allow swimming costumes (even for lunch) but you are fine if you cover up (dress/t-shirt etc...)
    Elenite villas by Mark on 11 Jun 2009, 17:55

    Just a question for one of the guys. Do you have to wear long trousers in the restaurant in the evenings, even if it buffet. going in 2wks. Many thanks
    Re: Carol by Alex Martin on 05 Jun 2009, 08:22
    Hello Alex here again, just refering to Carols Question about the weather - It was Brilliant, we went for a week and had 1 cloudy day. Two of the days were absolutely boiling and the Sand on the beach was at times a little uncomfortable - which i cant really complain about, so if you are going next week it should be absolutely lovely. Hope you have a good time and please let me know how it was. Alex
    elenite villas by carol on 03 Jun 2009, 00:56
    glad you had a good holiday, me and my family is going on friday cant wait havent been befor. could you tell me what the weather was like and was it expensave eating and drinking out thanks
    Elenite by Michele on 01 Jun 2009, 22:25
    Pleased you had a fab holiday.....I agree with all your comments....can't wait to go again in August!
    On our return by Alex Martin on 01 Jun 2009, 08:01
    Hello everybody, i have just got back from Elenite, Bulgaria with my Girlfriend and her 2 Five year olds and just wanna say what a lovely place Elenite was. Cant believe it was the same place to what all the bad reviews refered to. The place is VERY clean (there was 6 people cleaning a pool at one time) always people cleaning all day long. Our lady who cleaned and washed pur floors in our room and even tidyed up our mess(kids clothes everywhere) was Brilliant. The beach was gorgeous, which we thought that the pictures you get online do the beach and resort no favours at all. The whole Village was Lovely.
    People on here was also saying that the people were not polite or rude - which by the way is so far from the truth. always willing to help with a smile on there face.

    Would definately reccommend this Place to stay to anyone who wants to take Children or want a nice relaxing Holiday - Elenite is for you, if you like the Hustle and bustle or clubbing, bars etc i would pick Sunny beach, which for us 4 was too busy and busy with Hotels everywhere.
    The only little negative comment about Elenite is that the food was Ok- not brilliant, or bad just ok.

    But all in all the 4 of us had such a Brilliant time that we are looking at booking it for next year and the only place in Bulgaria that we would return to is Elenite - i would honestly rate this holiday on the whole at a 9/10 - Superb!!

    Alex Martin
    Going on Hols by Michele on 29 May 2009, 12:37
    Hiya going to the villas on 6th June with my Husband,13yr old son + mam & dad really looking forward to it been to some really good places & bad a holiday is what you make of it.This is our 1st time in Bulgaria & 1st time All Inclusive. any1 else going the same time we are flying from Newcastle.

    elenite villas by Ali on 25 May 2009, 19:05

    Going to Elenite for fist time in 4weeks tomorrow. Have heard loads about it good & bad, going to go and hope for the best. I have a 11year old girl and would like to know if there will be lots for her to do?
    Elenite villas by Shaz on 22 May 2009, 05:19

    We went here last Aug 08 and had a fabulous time. I would have loved to go back but couldnt justify the increase in price compared to what we paid last year from belfast. Only thing in august was the wasps I coped with them ok but for my 11 year old if you ask her about bulgaria she always comments on the wasps - though she is a drama queen. I think value for money this resort is excellent and I would have loved to go back this year.
    Villas by Michele on 21 May 2009, 18:46
    I will try and answer all your querries. Weather in July is warm dry heat (no humidity)The sun is very strong so if you suffer from prickly heat make sure you take some piriton or such as there is no chemist on site in case. I would recommend that you do this with any medication you may need ie paracetamol, sting relief (wasps are around but we have never been stung), plasters, antiseptic cream etc... better to be prepared then having to go to Sunny beach in a taxi!
    With regards to pool....the sun loungers seem to fill up in the morning (no need to put out towels) and then empty again after lunch....I guess this is because people go to the pool first and then the beach after lunch. Both are lovely so I would just alternate. Your son will probably prefer the waterpark but if you want to sit there they charge 5 lev for a sun bed and you pay for your drinks!
    The villas are fine.....basic. OUrs have aways been clean. The cleaners are lovely and work really hard..If you give them a small tip (a few lev) in the first couple of days you will find that they will look after you very well....same goes for the bar staff in the coffee shop!
    I prefer to be in the lower apartments (near to the beach) as I have small children and the steps would just annoy them and I don't have to worry about them falling over

    The missing towels was something that happened in one of the hotels last year not in the villas so I would not worry about it. I would advise though to take beach towels and not use your room towels for by the pool.

    With regards to car hire...I have always been advised not to hire a car as they drive like maniacs and if you have an accident or the car is damaged you are always blamed as you are the tourist.

    Overall we find this holiday very relaxing....it is a quiet resort and very family orientated. I have always felt safe here and really enjoy the low key evening entertainment. We prefer to make the most of the day with the children and then finish off with a quiet drink before bed!
    I hope you enjoy it and I would love to hear your thoughts when you get back!
    Elenite Villas by Sarah Dainty on 21 May 2009, 17:54
    Hi all
    I'm off to Elenite villas in 6 weeks, I'm going with my Mom, Its the first time I've been to Bulgaria and I'm worried because I've read so many bad reports and something about the hotel charging you for missing towels on check out?? I do not have any children and really wanted a chilled out fortnight in the sun. Can anyone tell me if any of the horror stories are true? What the weather will be like in July (2nd if anyone else is going)? and if the hotel is going to be safe and clean? Thanks guys - (-:
    Elenite Villas by Alec Shaw on 19 May 2009, 20:16
    I am going to the Elenite Villas in 7 weeks or so and have heard bad things about the place. I am going with my wife and 15 year old son and or we better or at the beach or at the pool side during the day. how hot will it be in july as my wife would get prickley heat on her legs. Is the villas as bad as some people say they are or they jsut compalining for the sack off it. Would any body know would it be worth get a car for 3-5 days to drive around and site see
    Elenite by MIchele on 14 May 2009, 20:14
    This resort always received really mixed reviews....you either love it or hate it. Going in May is very early in the season so I don't know what it will be like weather wise....I imagine it will be fairly cool in the evenings and lovely during the day.

    The food is OK....nothing amazing but edible and something for everyone....don't forget this hotel is used by many different nationalities and therefore it has to cater for all different tastes...not just English. This is actually one of the things that appeals to me as you feel that you have travelled away from the UK. I hope yoiu enjoy your holiday and post your comments on this site
    Elenite Holiday Village by Alex Martin on 01 May 2009, 09:48
    Hi, My girlfriend, 2 five year olds and myself are going to Elenite in 3 weeks today and cannot wait but i am hearing alot of bad feedback on various web sites!! People saying the food is rubbish, people are un friendly etc. just wanted to know what the view was from a whole who have been? Also would like to know what the weather is like?
    we are all looking forward to it as its the kids 1st proper holiday abroad, hopefully i will on here in 4 weeks time telling everyone how nice it is. Thankyou. Alex

    This is my first time going to Elenite. I have a 11year old & 2 Year old both girls. Just wondering if the 11 year old will have fun as there is no kids club with the villas. Just booked it last week for the end of June.
    Elenite by Michele on 08 Apr 2009, 00:59
    The cost of the holiday has remained pretty much the same for 2aduts and 2 children. The cost of things from the shop has increased and also we noticed last year that there was a considerable increase in cost of drinks when we went to Nessebar.
    elenite by carol on 24 Mar 2009, 18:52
    thanks for getting back to me. i was just a bit worried. i take it you love it then 4th time. the last time we went was 3 year ago butwe stayed at nessebar and loved it , but now they have made the rooms smaller so they dont have family of 4 rooms anymore so we thought we would try elenite. has the prices changed alot in the 4 years you have been going. when we were their it was very cheap to eat and drink out . thanks again for your info .
    Elenite by Alex from Epsom on 21 Mar 2009, 04:50
    We went there last year and stayed in the village. The villa was a bit old - I was told villas were build by Swedes abt 20 years ago, but our one was just by the beach so it was fantastic for us - we have 2kids who were 3 and 5 last year. This year we booked Royal Park as could not get a villa on our dates. Aquapark was also a good extra. This year we also want to see Shipka - my distant relative was fighting Turks there in 19th century.
    Villas by MIchele on 17 Mar 2009, 01:34
    Hi..you can use you band in any of the bars within the villa complex...this consists of a coffee shop/bar, reception bar and the beach bar shaped like a ship. There is another very large beach side bar that is payable to everyone. The beach is fantastic...loads os space and very safe. There are lifeguards all along the beach who really do watch out and are not afraid to use their whistle if they feel you are heading into danger.
    We love this resort....I am not saying it is perfect but the facilities are excellent value for money. hence us going back for the 4th time. If there is anything else you wish to know just ask.

    villas by carol on 04 Mar 2009, 19:44
    hi all me and my family are going to elenite villas. i have read lots of bad reveiws and am a bit worried. can anybody eas my mind . also can you tell me what you can use ur all inclusive bands for sombody said you cant use it at the beach bar when it says in the brocher that you can. this would be usfull for my kids as they love the beach. any info would be great thanks
    Elenite villas by Michele on 18 Feb 2009, 14:30
    We are going back again this year (4th time!!!).....was tempted to find somewhere else but really struggled to find something that had the same available at such a low price! My children love it here...the waterpark is such a bonus!

    Hi Michelle, just stumbled accross this site and have read a few of the postings.

I can't understand the negative reports about the village we think it is fantastic, especially for the kids. WE LOVE ELENITE

    Hi Michelle

    No we fly out from belfast - 11th august 6.40pm flight so dont know what time we arrive think it is late what about yourselves? What age are the kids, my daughter gemma is 10. First round is on my better half lol


    Elenite Holiday Village by Michelle on 09 Aug 2008, 02:01
    Shaz will meet up for a drink.
    Are you flying from gatwick
    Villas by Michele on 08 Aug 2008, 17:38
    Safety deposit boxes - there is no deposit , you just hand back the key when you check out.

    The bar in the coffee shop closes at 10.00pm....we used to line up the drinks to take back to the room with us. The bars in the night club and reception area are open until 12.00

    There is no childrens entertainment around the pool for the villas....This seems to happen around the pool at the Royal Park going by the loud shouting of 'oggy oggy!!' as I walked past on the way to the water park. The villas pool is used for water aerobics at 3pm followed by water polo. There are various kids clubs depending who you have travelled with. First Choice seem to be based more at the Royal Park and they hold a kids disco at 8pm in the ampitheatre (near water park and mini golf. For boys there seems to be a permanent game of football on the beach which anyone can join in. Hope I have answered all your questions!

    safety deposit boxes by Shaz on 08 Aug 2008, 03:40
    H michele

    in spain you pay for the safety deposit boxes but you get your deposit back - does this happen in bulgaria?? also does the bars shut at 10.30 or do they stay open later as my partner doesnt like the thought of being home at 11 lol - michelle we will have to meet up for a drink when do u go


    Elenite Holiday Village by Michelle on 08 Aug 2008, 01:40
    Hi Michele do they have kids entertainment round the swimming pool at the village
    Villas by MIchele on 08 Aug 2008, 00:22
    Don't worry about asking. There are safety deposit boxes it cost about 100 lev for the 2 weeks.
    The hotels have a little bit more freedom with regards to using the pools but thats all.....each hotel can use their own pool and that belonging to the villas but not each others. Those that I spoke to felt that the villas had the best main restaurant with regards to choice.
    Personally, I have always prefered the villas as I don't like being in a multi storied building particularly with regards to the balcony and children! I also feel that the noise will be higher in the hotels with doors slamming in the corridors.
    The villas have its own pool....a large rectangular one next to the coffee shop and near the ice creams!. The pools at the hotels look nice but I know that the one at the Royal Park gets very buisy (people struggling to get a lounger) and also noisy....its where first choice do constant entertainment such as bingo and silly games...not my thing ....I prefer peace and quiet without the fear of being thrown into the pool!!!!!
    villas by Shaz on 07 Aug 2008, 21:41
    Hi Michele

    Sorry being a nuisance now, what about safety deposit box are they available and how much are they?? I take it the villas have their own pool if we are not allowed to use the hotel pools, maybe I should have booked the hotel instead of the villas sounds like they are allowed more freedom????
    Villas by Michele on 07 Aug 2008, 20:43
    The villas all have a small fridge which will be stocked with 2 bottles of water and a choclate bar! Rooms are an adequate size andhave either bath with overhead shower attachement or a proper shower cubicle.
    For those staying in the villas free drinks are available in the coffee shop and bar in reception, bar in animation hall and nightclub. Villas are not able to use the main pools of the Royal Bay or Royal Park and are not able to use their bars. (They however can use the Villas!) There is a large beach/cocktail bar which is payable to everyone.

    Entrance to the waterpark is free - if you need a sunbed they are 5 lev per day and the bar is payable in the waterpark.

    There are small supermarkets available throughout the resort selling sweets, crisps, sun creams etc...

    I have mentioned in previous posts that the electricity can sometimes be a bit erractic (we had 2 power cuts this time during the afternoon for about 2 hours)...this did not effect us at all but it was a little dark going to the toilets as they have no windows....suggest taking a small torch just in case.
    When we there last week there were quite a few wasps around...they did not sting any of us but I carried sting relief with me just in case.

    This resort seems to always receive really mixed reviews...I think you either love it or hate it. I love it here as I have 2 young children who only want to swim all day....the beach is lovely with plenty of sun loungers. The waterpark is a great feature for a couple of hours. I also like the fact that everything seems to be relatively quiet at 10.30pm and you can enjoy a drink on the balcony and listen to the lapping of the sea!

    Hope this helps ...if you can think of anything else you need to know...just post a comment!
    villas by Shaz on 07 Aug 2008, 00:45
    Hi Michele

    We are staying at the villas, are they good? Is there a fridge in the villas and does the all inclusive cover us for everywhere in the village I heard it doesnt cover all the bars? Any other advice you can give would be appreciated we go on Monday evening cant wait

    Elenite Villas by Michele on 06 Aug 2008, 19:12
    Hello....we have just returned from a third visit to Elenite and can honestly say that each time we go it just gets better. The Villas are spacious and clean....we were very lucky and had one right at the front by the sea. The food improves each year...there is much more variety suitable for children, fresh pancakes each morning. Snacks are more widely available..hot dogs from beach bar, toasted sandwiches (from about 11.30am to 1.30pm) at the coffee shop, chicken kebabs available from the roof terrace at reception level (would recommend these!) and pizza from the BBQ restaurant near the Royal park.

    The weather at the moment is great....not humid but very warm. We had a few cloudy days but still warm enough to swim or make sandcastles!

    If anyone has any questions I am happy to answer them.

    villa query by Jackie on 18 Jul 2008, 18:17
    Hi everyone. I'm going to Elenite on 11th August (9 of us in total) and if people who have been before can tell me if there is a fridge in the villas? I can't wait.
    Rooms by Louise on 17 Jul 2008, 00:19
    Hi Dave, Thanks for that. It's the appartments we are going to and the rooms on the Website look nice enough indeed. We've just heard that my Mother in law's friend was at the resort earlier this year with her husband and Grandson, and she has just booked for a familly group of 9 to go next year, so it has her seal of approval too. Enjoy your holiday when it comes.
    hotel rooms by dave on 15 Jul 2008, 19:17
    hi louise we have stayed in the holiday village so i cant comment on the rooms in the hotels but they seem quite good from walking round the shopping center under one of them.
    the village rooms are basic but they are adequate for your needs bed etc ample storage the pictures on the site are a true representation of the complex.
    every resort has its good and bad bits but there are more good than bad
    anyway not long off now 11th aug hope you all have a good time!!!!!

    Villas by Louise on 15 Jul 2008, 01:47
    Hi Michelle, thanks for the info on the mozzies. I normally go with repellant anyway, just got a bit concerned when I read a comment on another site which said they were really bad. Also since you have been before can you tel me what the rooms are like. I have seen images on Balkan holidays website which looks a bit run down when compared to the interior shown on the Victoria group website mentioned by Dave on 25 May 2008. We will be going anyway, but dont want to have unrealistic expectations before we go. Not that we intend spending that much ime in our rooms anyway. Any information from anyone who has been would be much appreciated.

    Elenite by Sharon on 23 May 2008, 02:43
    Hi Dave

    Just what I wanted to hear another positive review!! Just one thing is there anything in walking distance or is it completely cut off as my partner likes to walk on holiday and dont know if he will like being in the middle of nowhere as such lol if you have any pics would be great to see them email addy is norash1505@yahoo.com
    were on our way back by dave on 22 May 2008, 23:07
    well to all the people who jave slated the elenites first let me say you must be barkingmad.
    i first was dragged to the resort kicking and screaming by my wife three years ago after she went on her own the previous year.
    being a man i was determined not to like it( i was wrong)
    the food was nice the locals and staff will bend over backwards to help you!
    the animation team go well beyond the call of duty making sure you enjoy your holiday.
    as a result we have made this resort a second home.
    if you like hustle and bustle go to spain but if you want a holiday were you can look back and say well that was great then this place is for you.
    its only 10 mins away from sunny (blackpool) beach.
    and only 5 mins walk from an equetrian center just outside the complex.
    to put it in a nutshell its one of the greatest holiday resorts i have been to and we as a family are looking forward to returning in august for another 2 weeks (bring on the good times)
    if anyone wants any further information you can email me on heart_soul@ntlworld.com
    to sign off you can never please everyone all of the time but at least at this resort the locals will try!!!!

    Elenite by MIchele on 20 May 2008, 00:56
    Trish...I fully understand your situation.,....it is worrying enough taking children abroad who have no medical conditions. I agree you are better going to a country with a better infrstructure such as Cyprus...I would do the same! The first time I went I was like everyoine else reading all the comments and worrying - luckily we had a fantastic time!

    If you notice though most of the negative comments are from those who stayed at the Royal Park which personally would be my idea of hell as I don't do high rise hotels!!! I prefer to have my feet nearer the ground. If anyone has any questions I am more than happy to help!
    bulgaria feedback by Nicky on 19 May 2008, 22:56
    We have booked to go to Bulgaria for the first time on 8th June, its been helpful reading the web messages. I know there are some good and some bad comments however, good to have info relating to important things to pack. One thing on my list is a torch which I would not have thought of. We will just make the most of it while we are there, as long as the weather is good and we can eat and drink enough we will be happy. Nicky
    Elenite Holiday Village by Sharon on 19 May 2008, 01:54
    Totally understand Trish, Im just gonna take my chances as I have never read a good report about a hotel Im going to lol. but this year is an exception in that I am gonna bring a torch if the worst happens I will just not go to Bulgaria again - any1 else going same time as myself (11th aug) drop me a line norash1505@yahoo.com maybe we can meet up
    Holiday by Trish on 19 May 2008, 00:35
    Hi Guys I wasn't being fussy, even he head o ftourism in Bulgaria is worried that they can't cope this year with the amount of visitors arriving. I have 3 sons with a medical condition and they need intravenous injections, i can't really do that with no power, there was a 3 da power cut last week which ended up in everything closing - Bulgaria are currently selling 60% of their power to other countries and can only cope with 15,000 tourists not 40,000 blasting air con. Cosmos were totally understanding, I have been to cyprus before and know of nearest hospitals etc, my problem was I shouldn't of booked a holiday in eastern europe with the boys condition. Im sure everyone will have a wonderful time and I think the resort looks lovely, maybe in a few years when the infastructure is sorted we will head to Bulgaria. Have a great holiday everyone.
    Elenite Village by Michele on 16 May 2008, 16:40
    It is a shame that Trish felt she had to change her holiday. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion and everyone's expereiences are different. I can imagine that if you are unfortunate to fall ill on holiday that it can put you off that destination....but it can happen anywhere in the world. The best is to take precautions. I would advise to take a torch as power cuts do happen....I have had one each time I have been lasting a couple of hours...it by no way affected my holiday...just a bit dark going to the toilet!. The first time I did not have a torch but the next time I took two wind up torches and a couple of tea lights just in case! It is worth noting that the nearest pharmacy is in Sunny Beach so it is worth while taking a few things with you. I found last year that ibrofen, piriton (in case of heat rash!), calpol, dyrolyte, immodium, plasters, antiseptic useful. Another useful tip that I read in a magazine is to take pro-biotic (actimel type) for a few weeks before travelling as this helps against holiday tummy (new place, new food etc...) and we all found that this helped.

    We have been twice and had a brilliant time and are going again on the 20th July....Can't wait!!!!!
    Elenite Holiday Village by Michelle on 16 May 2008, 03:43
    Hi Sharon if trish is right and it is crap we have to make it not crap lol (some people are so fussy )Roll on august the 11th
    Elenite Holiday Village by Sharon on 15 May 2008, 01:23
    Sorry to hear that Trish, hears hoping that all the stories are false lol (else im in for the holiday from hell)
    Elenite holiday village by Trish on 10 May 2008, 21:48
    Hi Everyone - well ive had 2 phone calls today from family regarding an article in the Telegraph about the infastructure of Bulgaria, the power cuts, the sewage problem...so im afraid i have bottled it and rang cosmos they told me to find another holiday and they would move my money to the new holiday...i struggled to find somewhere for 5 of us, but we eventually got Cyprus...so i feel a lot more chilled out now...I hope everyone has a lovely time in Bulgaria and that all the stories aren't true.
    Answers for Denise by Michele on 03 May 2008, 22:57
    Hi Denise....I will try to answer a few of your questions. If you are staying the the villas you are not allowed to use the facilities at any of the hotels....however there is a lovely swimming pool with a bar/coffee shop. At the centre of the village (near the main restaurant for the Villas) there is a small supermarket selling chocolate,crisps, sweets cigarettes, spirits, toiletries etc.... There is also similare supermarkets by the reception for the villas and in the other hotels.
    Nessebar is lovely to visit....the buildings are very old and lots of shops selling souveniers. It is nice for a day out and easily got to by boat or by mini bus. We always went by bus as sometimes the boat had trouble docking if the sea was a bit rough and would have to turn back!

    Can't advise you much about Sunny Beach as we only went once and hated it! It is really buisy and the shops selling lots of rubbish! After the relaxing atmosphere of Elenite we could not keep up with the pace of life!!!

    The waterpark is free to use but if you want a sunbed or parasol then you will need to pay 5levs each. You also need to pay for your drinks. As my children are quite young we only went for an hour a day so it never really bothered us!
    I hope I answered all your questions... regards Michele
    Villas by MIchele on 03 May 2008, 22:44
    I find it a shame that people can be so negative about Elenite. I have been there with my family for the last 2 years and both times we have had a fantastic time....so good in fact that we are going again this year. Unadveturess I know but with 2 small children who are only intersted in swimming and making sandcastles there is no point in paying a fortune to go anywhere else when Elenite meets all our needs at such a reasonable price!
    If anyone has any questions I am more than happy to help!
    Elenite Holiday Village by Trish on 27 Apr 2008, 23:49
    Hi Dennise, that has put my mind at rest a bit, did you have a walk around the village? I am keen to know if there are any shops on the village to by alcohol and ciggies and for the lads to buy sweets and stuff.? I don't know how much Lev to take, we are there for 2 weeks, 5 of us, would we spend much. Did you go on any trips, we are keen to head to Nessebar ive heard its supposed to be lovely. Are the guest from the village allowed to use the waterpark and facilites at the Royal Park? Sorry to bombard you with questions but i think a few of us on this site are wanting as much info as possilbe.
    Hotel Royal Park by Dennise on 27 Apr 2008, 12:12
    Going again! Hi I travelled to hotel Royal PARK at Elenite last Aug. I posted a review which you can look back at if interested. We were terrified by reviews before leaving and astounded by the moaners on our departure!! All I can say is we are going again!! We had a very rlaxing holiday and my 14 year old daughter loved the free water park and on tap ice cream!! I would be happy to resond to any emails if I can help allay any fears but my advice is.... Stop looking at this site it nearly wrecked my holiday,..Take sensible precautions and if you want a holiday of burgers and chips go to Spain xx
    Elenite by Sharon on 12 Apr 2008, 03:43
    Hi Trish
    Yeah we are flying out 11th aug dont know if you will still be there - my email addy is norash1505@yahoo.com give me an email and we will maybe meet up for a drink lol. We have been all inclusive couple of times and must admit I do prefer it
    Elenite Holiday Village by Trish on 06 Apr 2008, 23:57
    Hi Sharon, we are due to fly out on 4th August for 2 weeks from Manchester with Cosmos. I'm still pretty worried about going, we have never been all inclusive before but I did witness it once when cosmos dumped us on a all inclusive complex in fuerteventura a few years ago. Thats another story. I try to ignore reviews and had read some really good ones when i decided to book last september, then i found this sight which unnerved me a bit. Im just concerned that with 3 picky sons that there is nowhere else to feed them if the restaurants look risky!! It just sounds like last year the problems were in August which is bound to be the busiest time of the year. I was thinking of contacting cosmos to see if it is possible to change the holiday but don't know where i would stand?. Anyway it looks like we will be going, i will just have to take plenty of pot noodles and a travel kettle lol, just in case - and plenty of stomach tablets. The place does look lovely and im sure my boys will really enjoy it, so will probably see you there. Trish

    you are arriving the same time as myself what age are the kids my daughter is 10 maybe we will see you there. I tend not to worry about the reviews as every place Ive been to has had bad reviews but when I got there is has always been fine - email me and maybe we can set each other at ease Ive found some excellent pics
    Elenite Holiday Village by Michelle on 31 Mar 2008, 01:57
    Hi, me my husband plus two children are going on the 11th August, little bit worried about the previous comment because have not heard anything like that ( e-coli and the food) Looked at thr trip advisor web site and had heard nothing there.
    Elenite Holiday Village by Sharon on 29 Mar 2008, 02:34
    Hi Trish
    We are going to elenite august this year with our 10yr old daughter. When do you go? We are there 1st 2 weeks, we might see you there lol. Ive been the same as yourself pretty nervous after reading some reviews.
    Elenite Holiday Village by Trish on 11 Feb 2008, 10:19
    Hi - im really worried about reading some of the comments especially from the Royal Park - we are staying in the Village with 3 teens ranging from 12 - 16 is there plenty for them to do? Has anyone else experienced food poisoning, e-coli, severe tummy upsets - I don't want to pay the balance for my holiday if this is what we are getting for our 3,500 - i would rather loose the deposit. Are there other places to eat that aren't part of the all - inclusive i.e better food, are there any shops where we can buy beer, wine, cigarettes in Elenite,if the beer runs out at 10.30 everynight - we will need supplies just in case... Please advise me we are going in August this year. I hate reading reviews as I know us brithish are moaners - but some of the reports from last August are pretty scary. Cheers
    nice place by ian oldfield on 12 Jan 2008, 04:46
    weather can be very hot in june, july, august and september, it can be cold too, so just in case, take a jumper with you, experience i had was one day it can be 30'c then the next day it could be something like 6-10'c, but mostly between these months are good....food very good, proberly as good or even better than other countries. beware of the gypsies, they play havock on the country...pakos bar in elenite, privalage complex, brilliant, fair price and fair food and a lovely welcome from mr pako...

    air con by joanne jackson on 27 Jul 2007, 09:06
    yes their is air con in the villas, it cuts off when you leave the room or open the verandah, the bellboy told us to take the remote control and point it through the verandah window to start it again as we were on the ground floor, don't know if it works as we didn't bother, we did use the air con all the time we were in the room though as it was very hot. great place i am sure you will enjoy

    my son went to the bulgarian animation team and i could not fault them atall, british reps i can't comment on except for the lively crowd at the pool tables playing killer pool, very noisy, but older kids. the girls in the animation team (bulgarian) also do the shows at night.
    reps by alan greig on 20 Jul 2007, 18:31
    bulgarian anamation team or the british reps who wins plz reply
    we have just returned from 2 weeks at elenite holiday village and could not have asked for a better holiday, in fact we have already booked to return next year. don't bother with the reports that say this place is dreadful, the food was great always something 2 eat chicken, beef, pork, 2 soups every day, salads, cakes seperate childrens buffet. the entertainment is in the amination hall situated on the front, starts at 8am with kids disco, bingo at 9 and shows at 9.30pm all the shows were fantastic. there is a kids club from 10am till 12 noon and then again from 3pm till 5pm and the girls that run the club are fantastic with the kids. the place is spotless always being cleaned, the staff are great (with the exception of the reception staff whom i found a litle stuffy). i would recommend this place for families but not for couples. there is a disco on site which is open till 4am. snacks are available all day on the beach front from pizzas, chicken kebabs and hot dogs, there is also ice cream nad biscuits at the pool bar.

    hello!i am a bulgarian.since december i am living in London.last year i was working in Elenite Holiday Village.Bulgaria i a different place,but you cant expect to go in a different country and to find the same as in your own.if you are looking for that-stay in UK.I AM SORRY,but that is the truth.We,the stuff,were working hard for you(i was working in the main restorant for 250 per month,still expecting the money for the last month!;no days off).i really enjoied the time there,altough all bad moments.Do you have any idea how many RUDE people i saw?But there were a lot nice people too...let me give you a tip:smille will do,tip will make miracle(to have a tip was like a miracle!!!)i am not complaning about this.i was more interested in talking with people from UK.ABOUT THE FOOD-i was eating the same food as you all season-had no problems!so...maybe you are really not used to our kind of food.simple as that!to everybody who is going to go this year:read all the comments,but dont expect the worse...so many visitors were happy with the holiday they had!you might be one of them.and after all-its up to you what kind of holiday will have...Thank you for visiting my country-like everywhere there are good and bad things...keep that in mind
    Elenite Village/Royal Park Hotel by BillB on 28 Sep 2006, 20:28
    We had a great time. All we wanted was a two chill out and that is what we got. We could not fault the hotel, the accomodation was superb, absolutely spotless, the food could have been better, but we allways found something we liked. I have never seen such a clean hotel, there were cleaners everywhere, the beach was constantly cleaned. You have to remember that this is a First Choice hotel and the reps worked their butts off. The evening entertainment at the Royal Park was to a very high standard (if you discount the evening Bingo session. If you have kids they will love it. we did not go to the 'Annimation Hall', we found other entetainment at Paco's bar the wooden shack behind the hotel. I have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to anyone, you get what you pay for.

    our stay in elenite by martin, pam & family on 27 Jun 2006, 14:59
    elenite is a lovely place to stay if you want a beach holiday. nothing much to get dressed up for at night unless you get a taxi into sunnybeach where there is more entertainment going on. we found it very clean and friendly but we would not go back as it has nothing in the complex for our family in the evenings. weather great, beach great, pools great, food not so good and entertainment crap?. a must see is nesebar good food,& shopping, and if you are a family of 4 you are cheaper going by taxi only 60 levs were is the boat is 80 levs and shops you can hagil with and get your stuff for good prices. so thats what we though of elenite holiday village.

    great holiday in elenite holiday village by mairi n ryan on 14 Jun 2005, 13:36
    the village is a great place to have a relaxing holiday. the beach is gorgeous,the food and drink were great!the pool was always clean as was the entire village - always cleaners seen throughout the day ad night cleaning. Sunnybeach is only about 15 mins away and def worth going there for a more lively athmosphere. The village has been complained about and i dont realy see why. Loved bulgaria and will def go back one day!
    Elenite Holiday Village by Claire on 24 May 2005, 11:19
    Arrived back from Elenite Holiday Village on 21st May 05 with a nice tan. Me (21) and my boyfriend (26) were worried about all the bad reviews we had read before going out there, but we shouldn't have worried because it was really good.
    The only complaints we did have were that when we first arrived at about 2am there was not enough bell boys to take people to their villas. In the end we all just went and found our own rooms. The food was sometimes cold but it was always cooked, I think it was more to do with if you went down to eat late. We ate in the Talyana restaurant and the Sunshine restaurant, so there's plenty of food to choose from. The pool's are really cold, so you have to be brave when you get in. We went on the Lazy Day Cruise which was really good, just a bit windy. You sail round the coast going to Sunny Beach and Nessabar, and they put on a really nice lunch for you. The entertainment is good as well, something for all ages.
    Take advantage of the coach service that the hotel offers, it costs 8 levs each for a return. It's loads cheaper than a taxi!
    The maids are always cleaning at all hours in the day. We had a really nice villa right on the beach, so we were really lucky.
    We probably wouldn't go back again only beause it's more family orientated, and there's nothing to do after midnight unless you go the 30 mins into Sunny Beach.
    Highly recommend it to anyone thinking of going, great value for money.
