Good and well equipped hotel in the small cute town. It is worth to pay additionally to have a very nice view on seaside. Rooms are large enough, cleaned every day. Food is very good and served also during a day on swimming pool area. No need to go for lunch to the restaurant. Swimming pools are nice as well. Many attractions for children in swimming pool, on the playground and in mini club. However the biggest attitude of this hotel was an animation team. They did really great job from the morning (10:00am), when started their dance to vacation jingle, then leading fitness exercises, professional Zumba, dancing classes, joga, pilates, aquarobics. Everything close to swimming pool (I had an eye on my children when doing exercises;)). Other activities were run on the beach. In the meantime they organized short games and competitions. There was also junior club for teenagers where my children participated every day and really enjoyed. Animation team did all these things with a passion and energy, therefore there was no option then to follow them. But the best work they did in the evenings when they made really professional performances like musicals, joking evenings etc.. Thanks to their high competences, dedication and commitment they were prepared on the highest level. The team was built very well, as they had professionals in the team, however nicely balanced with different maturity and seniority of the members. They were almost always present and kindly chatted, laughing, enjoying and simply spreading positive energy. Great job of the Heads of animations and the team. My family had the best vacation ever in Petra Mare!

Room Tip: room without seaside view are quieter, but seaside is really nice, however voices from nighttclubs might be heard during night.

We booked this hotel as part of a packaged holiday with EAZY JET. When we researched the hotel it looked modern and well positioned to the local town. When we arrived the staff could not have been more attentive and we moved quickly to our room on the 4 floor. The room was not the superior sea view shown on the website but a rather old 1960 decorated room, it was clean and tidy but it was not very well maintained. The light switch was hanging out of the wall, the toilet flush was broken and one of the lamp shades had two very large burn holes on it. Once I reported these faults they were repaired quickly. The lamp shade was just turned around ( no investigation into the cause of the ignition.... But not to worry). The food in the hotel was great a fantastic and extensive healthy choice ( read some other reviews that claim that the food was bad!! Could not be further from the truth.)The hotel is mainly used by Russians and Germans so if you are a Brit you will be in the minority but this was not an issue in any respect. The pool was modern and lifeguarded as is the beach. Beware the laying of towels as a Brit you will used to abiding by the no towels before 8am rule. If you follow this hotel rule you will not get a sun lounger and umbrella. I conducted a little experiment and never once did I manage to be the first towel layer....I was normally up at 5am. If we had little children this would have been a problem. The hotel should police this.The all inclusive bar closes at midnight and cocktails are extra ( if you fancy a drink or cocktail past midnight). The local town has a fantastic harbour and a fine selection of tavernas and restaurants. If you get the chance check out Zorba's. Good holiday feel as though I was miss sold the room. That said the sea view is outstanding.

Room Tip: Sea view is outstanding. Stay well away from the old 4th floor if you can.
