Inspiring experiences shared by our guests

Maritim Paradise Blue Hotel & Spa in Albena is excellent and deserves 5 stars for everything it offers: interior and exterior design, spacious rooms, quiet location in front of the sea, beautiful beach. We always had available beach and pool loungers and many small surprises that we did not expect: mineral water throughout the hotel, real coffee (espresso, cappuccino, and ice coffee), 100% organic locally produced apple juice and bread freshly baked for breakfast.

Everything is remarkable, from the location, to the rooms, swimming pools, restaurant, staff - who is very attentive and prompt with every request. I was impressed that in the restaurant we found fruit, vegetables and organic wines from Albena locally produced at the resort's own farms and winery.
