Loved this hotel. Felt like home. Great design, great pool (there's an outdoor one and an indoor one), and the staff was super friendly. Had a couple of issues but they were small:
Food was the same everyday and a little variety would have been nice, the bathtub in the room could have been larger, and the bartender looked like he didn't want to be there at all. Also, the lights in the room, while they were a nice yellow color, could have been brighter or adjustable, as there were times when I couldn't see anything in the room at night. I would also have loved strong WIFI in the hotel but it was largely only available in the lobby.
But overall, it was a superb experience and I would suggest it over any of the larger hotels closer to the beach. It was snuggled a small distance from the beach, which I appreciated, and the design of the hotel was super nice. Give it a try!
Very clean, house keeper was their every day and kept the room very clean. The staff was available at all times and very friendly. They would call us a taxi as soon as we asked. The hotel was with in 5 minutes walking distance of the sea, the park, the Glav and many other attractions. The neighbor hood was noisy at night.

Modern purpose-built hotel situated one kilometre from the train station in the town of Varna on Bulgaria’s Black Sea …More
I've stayed 2 days at Divesta hotel in in the city center of Varna, about 100 m from Cathedral. Location is great, a lot of shops, restaurants&bars nearby, and the public beach is 15 min by walking through city center.We had a lot of choice for the breakfast , the room was clean and spacious, the single inconvenience is the noise from outside, but this is something normal if you want to stay in the city center of Varna.
The hotel staff is very helpfully if you need anything...so, it was a very pleasant weekend visiting Varna.
They were working on the hotel and during breakfast we were listening to machines chip up tiles which was not very relaxing to say the least. The spa services were nice and reasonably priced. It was a beautiful location and over all a pleasant stay.
On arrival to this hotel we experienced an easy check in. When we reached our room we found our keycard did not actually work so had to use a manual key.
The room was clean and tidy and had a nice view of the sea from the balcony but the heating in the room did not work which meant it was freezing. Other members of our group next door to us also did not have heating that worked and their hair dryer in the bathroom also did NOT work. It seems nothing really works in this hotel.
The third time we ate at the hotel ship restaurant the waiter at breakfast brought out the complete wrong meals that were asked for but we said nothing and just ate it.
On the evening, we ordered food and pointed to the menu; an hour and a half later the food arrived in drips and drabs without any cutlery on our tables. There was dishes missing, and most people got food that they did not actually order. To top it all, the food was stone cold and they were not doing anything to solve the problem.
We left and went to reception to complain where we were told we had to pay the bill even though the food was not consumed. The ship manageress was very resistive and rude. We agreed to pay drinks but not food SO THEY HELD ONE OF OUR PASSPORTS AND SAID THEY WOULD NOT GIVE IT BACK UNTILL THE FULL BILL WAS PAID! I rang Expedia and they immediately spoke to the hotel and I got the passport back straight away.
DONT WASTE YOUR TIME WITH THIS HOTEL. MANAGEMENT IS SHOCKING AND IT IS NOT WORTH ALL THE EFFORT!!!!!!
2 single 45 year old guys. went 21 sept for 1 week. hotel ok. resort - Eastbourne.2 gys looking for sun (was ok nice beach) nice food (both chefs found some good places- basically don't go to the really cheap or quiet places. follow the germans). a good drink- very cheap normally paid 3-4 lev (1.10-1.35) a pint in good bars. it's very quiet this time of year go out around town and you will end up back at the muppet bar - the liveliest place.looking for a little "romance" go during the season there are only couples & young germans at this time. taxi's get to varna for about 20 lev. pretend you are getting the bus they will drop their prices. always agree a price first or they will rip you off. varna- half price for food & beer-forget clothes unless you want to pay london prices to look like huggie bear.prostitutes- say no they go away. very funny some only know one word.(sex). not hundreds of them either its not a problem. single guys watch the gypsies they want to go for a drink for you & "make love to you" they will drug you and rob you. all in all not a bad place but really has no more to offer than the spanish resorts apart from it's cheap
