Pools

The pool is framed by a sun terrace that’s dotted with loungers and parasols. The lobby bar is just up the stairs, so it’s easy to keep your drink topped up.

Pool Scene

The hotel has its own stretch of the nearby Golden Sands’ beach. Sunloungers and parasols are dotted across it, and drinks from the bar are part of your All Inclusive package. A free shuttle bus runs to the beach and back twice a day.

Food & Drink

The buffet restaurant takes care of mealtimes. It offers a range of local dishes and international foods. There are regular theme nights, too.

If you’re staying here for seven days or more, you can take advantage of the Grifid Arabella’s à la carte restaurants. You’ll have the choice of three eateries* that cover off Bulgarian, Asian and Italian cuisine. It’s less than five minutes away by car, or you can walk there in 20 minutes.

Entertainment

The lobby bar keeps the drinks flowing through the evening, too. If you fancy trying some of the beachfront drinking spots, they’re a five-minute cab ride away.

Sports & Activities

Take a break from the pool and challenge someone to a game of table tennis. You can also hire bikes* from the hotel if you fancy exploring the surrounding forests on wheels.

Facility Overview

The pool sits at the centre of the grounds, and it’s skirted by loungers and parasols. The lobby bar serves drinks throughout the day, and the main restaurant is the place to go at mealtimes. Guests can take the shuttle bus and spend the day at the beach club at Grifid Beach, where drinks, parasols and loungers are all part of the package. Spa treatments are available at the sister hotel – Grifid Arabella.

You’re well-placed for visits to one of Bulgaria’s best waterparks – Aquapolis. It’s less than a five-minute stroll down the road and is kitted out with kids’ pools, a lazy river, and slides that are great for the whole family.

Health & Beauty

There’s no spa here, but you can use the facilities* at the sister hotel – Grifid Arabella. It’s got a sauna*, a steam room* and a whirlpool bath*. It’s less than a five-minute drive away.
