      Albena is the best Black sea resort. It is green, quiet with fabulous sands and hotels. It is a pleasure to be there. The best hotel there is Flamingo.

      MY wife and I stayed at Hotel Magnolia for 3 days. The staff at reseption were very helpfull. The only fault we found was the foodd was cold when we managed to get a table to eat. Beyond that the hotel was quite good . the fee bus service was very good. We enjoyed our stay there on the most part. It was our first time abroad. I would say to people that albina is a nice place to vist. We had a hot water problem first thing in the mornings.

      The rooms were super small & outdated. All 7 of us got sick with a stomach virus. The stuff told us that it has been like this the whole summer. Many of the guests and staff were getting sick. The parking was a HUGE problem. Opposite the hotel there is a reservation with a small river that stank real badly. I wouldn't recommend this hotel to anybody.
