If You Have a Complaint
Please ensure that any complaint you might have whilst on holiday is reported to the BeachBulgaria.com / Silky Holidays Representative or Agent locally and to the supplier of the service in question immediately, so that it can be dealt with on the spot. BeachBulgaria.com/Silky Holidays and the supplier must be afforded the opportunity to address any concerns you may have whilst you are still on holiday. We cannot accept liability in respect of any claims or complaints which are not notified to ourselves and any supplier involved entirely in accordance with this clause.
We have no control over the behaviour of persons staying or visiting your holiday accommodation (including persons who have themselves booked through Silky Holidays) and we are not responsible for any withdrawal or impairment of facilities or other loss or damage caused by them. There may be times when your Silky Holidays representative is unable to resolve your complaint immediately. Whilst we appreciate this may be frustrating, we do expect you to act in a reasonable manner towards our staff and we will take action against anyone who displays intimidating or threatening behaviour.
We would point out that failure to follow the above procedures may reduce or extinguish any rights you have to claim compensation from us, or from any relevant supplier. Any such rights will be reduced or extinguished if, had you followed the above procedures, you or we could have taken steps to reduce any loss or damage suffered or entirely prevented it from being suffered.
It is difficult and sometimes impossible properly to investigate a complaint if we are not told about it reasonably quickly once your trip is over. Your right to claim compensation may also be reduced or extinguished, should any delay in your complaint being notified during or after your trip, prevent us
from carrying out a proper investigation.
You must communicate any complaint to the supplier of the services in question as well as to our representative without delay and complete a report form whilst in resort.
If this is not done we will have been deprived of the opportunity to investigate and rectify your complaint whilst you were in resort and it may affect your rights under this contract.
It is our policy to deal with any valid complaints appropriately and to compensate where appropriate. We are aware that holidaymakers are being encouraged to make false or exaggerated complaints particularly in connection with holiday illness. We are committed to the detection and
prevention of fraudulent claims in the interests of our customers and to keep the cost of our holidays as low as possible. We work closely with fraud detection investigators and should we find any dishonest or exaggerated claims, we will not hesitate to take legal action to recover any
compensation paid. It is a criminal offence to make a dishonest claim
and we may refer such claims to the police for their investigation.

Prices and discounts for additional persons, children, as well as food supplements are usually quoted per person. On the booking page, once you specify all booking details, the final price is quoted.

This depends on each hotel’s policy and availability.
