The Emerald hotel located in Ravda, Bulgaria is definately a 5* resort. The features that accompany the hotel are beautiful and incredibly tasteful. The various outdoor swimming pools inparticular are stunning and met all requirements for a relaxing holiday. We also went to the hotel sky bar which was fabulous. Here, the bar over looks the hotel resort and across Ravda beach/sea, which was a great feature of the hotel. We also visited one of the two restaurants situated within the complex which specialised in Bulgarian dishes. Overall the food was good, but a liitle pricey compared to dining outside the hotel.
The room we stayed in was a self catering apartment. The room itself was small, but adequate size for a couple. It had aircon facilities, fridge, kettle, hair dryer, toaster, small cooking area, flat screened television, towels and all general amenities, which all provided additional comfort to our stay.The balcony is roomy, however the view is maininy of graasy areas but mountian land can be seen in the distance. The bathroom was great with a bath and built-in shower which we found to be better than the one we have at home which was a pleasant suprise. The owner kindly left plenty of toiletries which presented to be more than enough for just me and my boyfriend, we both thought this was a very nice touch the owner gave. The bed was, as advertised, a sofa bed which was adequate ofr our stay.
Overall, me and my boyfriend had a wonderful stay in the apartment at Emerald Spa Resort and the owner of the apartment was very accomodating any questions, changes and requests we made/asked. He was very approachable, friendly and pleasant throughout all episodes of contact which really added to the whole experience.
