Have you been (sun holiday NOT skiing) and would you recommend it - dh is keen and im in 2 minds mainly down to safety and food . If you went would you recommend where you steyed and what board basis etc.... someoen has said its a bit like blackpool which alos massively put me off.
We have not took our children abroad as yet and are between Menorca but its coming in at 3k AI for 2 weeks or Bulgaria which is significantly cheaper hence DH keenness. thanks
Ha ha. Sorry about that! They hired a car and went to visit lots of little villages and towns and said it was absolutely beautiful if that makes it any better. (Her youngest DC is 4, just to give an idea of the ages.) Honestly, she did have a really good time!
(We had a fab day out at Gt Yarmouth pleasure beach this week. DD is desperate to have her ears pierced. She said to me 'Look, mummy ALL the children in Yarmouth have their ears pierced. Even the boys.' )
(ps just to clarify - 'Yarmouth with Russians' was a descriptive not a denegrating statement. Think the travel agent meant that the place in Bulgaria happened to be a tacky holiday resort that a lot of Russian people go to. Just as Yarmouth is a tacky holiday resort that a lot of British people go to.)
There is a lovely place called Nessebar which has historic buildings and cobbled streets. It is about 1 mile from Sunny Beach, which is a nice beach as long as you face towards the sea, not the concrete hell which is Sunny Beach. There is a very cheap bus to the beach every 10 minutes. Nessebar (sometimes spelled Nessebur or Nesebur) has some lovely shops and restaurants. The seafood is great. But resorts like Sunny Beach are a bit Benidorm.
I loved it! Expensive now actually on seafront like 5 for beer but great for kids, they love us Brits and they love kids. lots of Russians and Romanians. Beautiful beaches but public so busy and frantic but great sand. Water cold in may, so go later in season when summer has warmed it up. Food amazing as long as you're not a fussy chips and nuggets Brit. We went all incl in a 5 star brand new hotel but some of the hotels look like dead on their feet 70's style. But clean. Very clean. Flights are dreadful, landing at 3am type terrible so look carefully. We stayed in resort closer to nessebar. I would recommend it and would go back on better flight times when kids are older. Try booking independently as BA do fly there. We stayed at Melia hotel. Glorious!
