The Dobrich Province region

There are stunning beaches on the Black Sea coast which are not over crowded as Bulgaria is still to be discovered by many. There are lots of investments going into Bulgaria which include 3 large golf courses in the Balchik region.

Bulgarian people are friendly and renowned for their hospitable nature.

Bulgaria is benefiting from being part of the European Union with the investment being made there, however they are not in the Euro yet. Therefore there is the added benefit of cheap prices. A typical 3 course evening meal for 2 people including a bottle of wine will cost you £12-£15. Taxis are also very cheap but you will have to barter!


Balchik is a small seaside town in Northern Bulgaria which combines the romance of its steep streets with the beauty of the sea.

Balchik is rich in culture and offers a great selection of cafes & restaurants, many of which overlook the marina. There is also a small water park on the esplanade which is ideal for kids. Sea fishing is also possible in the harbor. At night, during summer season, you can enjoy walking along the marina with plenty of entertainment and shopping. The town's top attraction is the Botanical Gardens and Summer Palace of the Romanian Queen Marie. The stone building and gardens are beautifully maintained.

The picturesque town of Balchik is situated only 30 minutes from Varna airport.

The area is set to become Bulgaria's St Tropez and boasts 3 golf courses and sailing, with over 50 shops. Also including fitness centre, hairdressers and yacht charter. Balchik has 2 small beaches ideal for that relaxing retreat. Only a 10 minute drive away is the resort of Albena which boasts a glorious beach with golden sand and water sports.

Balchik is 20 a minute walk which you can get to on the main village road or a stroll along the seafront. Taxi fares are minimal and to get to Balchik town centre would cost approx 6 leva (£2.50) or (2 Euro).

There are 3 stunning golf resorts varying from a 10 to 20 minute drive from Sunny Dream. The golf courses have their own restaurants which or high quality and very reasonably priced. Thracian Cliffs has amazing view's of the Black Sea and Cliff Tops.

"Nice on the surface, but not worth the time, money, or hassle."

This apartment looked nice in the photos and on entry to the flat, but right off the bat the caretaker told us the en-suite shower was blocked - and it never got fixed through our stay here. We also discovered that the cleaning done prior to our arrival was done poorly; our feet picked up lots of dirt from the floors, there was a hefty layer of dust on all the appliances, there were spiderwebs in all the corners and along the baseboards, and the dust bunnies under the beds were out of control. We then discovered that the toilet paper was almost completely gone with no replacements available, no napkins, and no kitchen roll. Also, just to clarify (since the owner specifically pointed it out when I asked) there is no television signal, no wireless internet, no microwave, no coffee maker, and no beach towels. These items are not marked on the advertisement for a reason - it is not an oversight.

Some of the elements of this review are factually incorrect. When advised on the Ensuite shower, Cleaning & supplies I contacted the guest to arrange a convenient time for these to be rectified. I did not receive a reply to arrange this and put this right. The cleaning and supplies have never been an issue in the last 4 years of letting this property. Regarding the Internet, when reviewing the advertisement with Holiday Lettings there are options internet and WIFI. I selected the internet option as this is not a wireless facility. There is also no listing for a microwave, coffee maker or Beach towels. This has not been misleading in anyway from the advertisement and therefore is not an oversight. I have amended the text on the advert to reflect the feedback received to ensure this is clear. In addition, the photographs clearly show there is no Microwave and Coffee maker in the kitchen. Upon the reviewer's arrival I have been informed they questioned the local payment for departure cleaning and laundry. This is clearly stated on initial correspondence and booking form which they have completed. This leads me to believe this review is a little bias.

"Clean, well-furnished apartment with wonderful views & lovely pool"

We (3, 40-something adults) had a lovely holiday and were really happy in the apartment. It was very clean(as were the communal areas) , comfortable and well furnished . The balcony was spacious and had wonderful views. The showers were great - hot and powerful. Airconditioning effective without being too noisy. It was a lovely pool which we usually had to ourselves (possibly because we were there late season) and the gardens surrounding it were kept beautifully. The caretaker/porter was also very helpful - never objecting to letting us back into the secure carpark however late we arrived back from exploring Bulgaria (he speaks no English but we all became very proficient at sign-language!). The only problem we found was that the balcony, being on a corner, could get very windy. Also, no coffee-maker. We ate a lot in the Hotel Paris, just a minute or two's walk away and found the staff friendly and helpful, the food very good, with a wide choice of menu and the prices almost laughably cheap. The apartment was also within easy walking distance of the wonderful botanical gardens and the row of restaurants and bars near the entrance to the gardens. The restaurants here were more expensive than the Hotel Paris and varied in quality. Our main complaint about them were that some only had dirty holes in the floor for toilets. However, one place we would highly recommend was the cafe-bar actually inside the Botanical gardens that overlooked the beach - a wonderful place for top quality wine and the best cakes we have ever tasted! The harbour front has the widest choice of restaurants varying a lot in price. All the ones we tried served good quality food and had friendly staff (plus quality of the toilets was much better than by the gardens!). We had a car with us which we always used when going to the harbour as it would have been quite a long, uphill climb back to the apartment. If you don't have a car would recommend walking down and getting a taxi back. Balchik is a beautiful town and the gardens, in particular, will take your breath away. We loved them so much we spent 2 whole days wondering around them.
