Fodor's Review

If you prefer to base yourself in a beach resort, the Arabella on Golden Sands is one of several that were purpose-built on the Black Sea Coast during the communist era. Like most other places here, this operates on an all-inclusive basis, meaning the rate includes 3 meals a day, plus snacks, and most drinks. There are 5 restaurants (serving Bulgarian, Italian or Asian cuisine), plus a couple of bars, so enough to maintain the interest. There's also an in-house spa, no less than 3 swimming pools (2 of them outdoor, one with a Jacuzzi), and various sports facilities to keep kids occupied. Rooms are bright and clean, and an ongoing rolling room refurbishment program is upping their chic factor by a couple of notches.
