The Black Sea Coast region
The Bulgarian Black Sea coastline has been renowned through history as a cosmopolitan playground where people of all nationalities can enjoy the pleasures available along its shores. The coastline itself covers some 400 kilometers and is often described as some of the most spectacular in Eastern Europe. The Bulgarians themselves, are also well renowned for their hospitality and will make you welcome throughout your stay.
The weather in this part of Bulgaria is ideal for visitors from all parts of the world with temperatures averaging some 28-30C degrees during the summer months. This is slightly cooler than the those in adjacent countries e.g. Greece and Turkey, because of the cooling breezes from the sea.
Emerald Beach Resort is just 25km from Bourgas International airport and 5 minutes from both the UNESCO World Heritage site of Nessebar and the bustling resort of Sunny Beach renowned for its lively nightlife. Taxis to both areas can be found either at the resort or in Ravda itself.
Ravda itself, is a sea resort with private hotels and lodgings located equidistant between Nessebar and "Sunny Beach". It offers sporting facilities, and fine well equipped sandy beaches. Emerald Resort is one of the largest developments in the town covering some 60,000 sq m. This includes a large area made over to landscaped gardens and natural parkland.

"Not 5 star, but could be!"
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\squeegee 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 bed in it's 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 other points are observations, the only real 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 standard of the cleaning is not of an acceptable standard.. Whilst this had obviously been undertaken prior to arrival; 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 and there is poor maintenance undertaken. Almost every lounger we used during our stay had missing or loose screws. There are also a large number of wasps around the pool bar and complex in general, more than I have experienced anywhere else in Ravda, so the management need to do something about the nests. The wasps prevent you from enjoying a drink at the bar.
The complex is not 5 star in our opinion, due to a number of issues such as the lack of cushions on the loungers and the wasps, but there are other issues which reduce my rating, such as; teenagers kicking a ball about directly in front of reception, unaccompanied youngsters running riot in the lobby bar and the sky bar being closed for the duration of our stay.
The pool is 5 star standard and the gardens are lovely and it has plenty of facilities that should mean this is rated at 5 star. The complex is kept clean around the gardens etc, but falls short in areas which I would expect from a 5 star establishment. The corridors have dirty carpets and these are raised at the corners, there is flaking discoulored paint and other issues. I would rate this as a 3.5\4 star. but it could easily be improved upon to attain the 5 stars if management address the issues.

"Great apt and the addition of the tv was a welcome bonus."
Great apt, close to the lifts and view from the window was most relaxing. Enjoyed watching a few people playing tennis from the balcony which was furnished with a table and 2 chairs. We had our breakfast and lunch on the balcony most days. Apt had kitchen equipped for 3 people, tv didn't have too many english spoken channels but enough for the short time spent inside.
The bed was already turned down when we arrived from a late flight - heaven! It has a memory foam mattress which made it very comfortable and had no trouble sleeping. Very easy to convert it back to a comfy sofa. After long days walking and touring it was great to fall into it. Only problems we had was when we arrived and found there was no toilet tissue and the air conditioning remote was dead... We asked at reception but they said it was our responsibility (we would have been happy to purchase some from them). Fortunately I had packed paper tissues but no batteries. We therefore had no alternative but to wait until the next day to purchase batteries and toilet tissue from a local shop. Without the air conditioning and the room being very hot it made for a rather uncomfortable first night.

"Family from Russia - June-July 2012"
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 children's pools and a children's club. I want to note the wonderful kitchen which is prepared at the nearby restaurants on the main street.

"Great Place, excellent apartment and pool, great value"
I stayed her last year for a one week holiday. There were two of us staying, and the apartment was clean and had all the essentials you need for a self catering option as well as a great size for 2. The apartment was ideal for what we needed with probably the most comfortable sun loungers i have ever sat on! Pool area is great, the onsite restaurant is good serving great food and drinks, however there are some excellent local restaurants which do huge pizzas so do look at both options.
Overall we had a lovely stay and we also indulged in a couple of treatments at the spa which was also really good. I would recommend for a relaxing stay somewhere classy but also away from the madness of bigger resorts. The apartment we stayed in would be ideal for couples. The personal touches put in by the apartment owners really made a difference; also the welcome pack is a much appreciated extra which I would suggest you go for when you stay.
