“Live like a millionaire”

published 16/12/2000

prices, excellent skiing

not perceived as glamorous skiing

Who wants to be a millionaire - we all do don't we. Try a package skiing holiday to this resort and you can get a taste of what a millionaire's lifestyle must be like. The packages to Bulgaria still rank amongst the cheapest skiing around, and once in the resort the prices make your money go...

“Borovets”

published 02/02/2008

it's skiing!

not enough culture

Borovets is the second largest ski resort in Bulgaria, an area now open for investment and exploitation of its huge potential due to Bulgaria's recent joining of the European Union. However, beware fellow skiiers that you cannot use Euros, but Bulgarian Levs. Now, the ski resort itself has...

“So good we went there twice.”

published 25/03/2004

Cheap, cheap cheap and the people are nice.

Food in the hotels was really bad.

Where do I start on Borovets? My mates and I love Borovets, so much we've been there twice and are planning a third trip there. Well I've broken it down to the 3 main things to consider when planning a winter sports holiday: 1- Snow 2- Food 3- Apres Ski. The snow in Borovets isn't amazing. They...

“Go Bulgar in Borovets”

published 01/01/2001

Value, friendliness, superb ski school

Food bad

Borovets, Bulgaria, where do I start? For a cheap ski experience, this is the best place on earth! I have skiied about a dozen times or so now, and Borovets without doubt offered me the best value for money of all. About 2.5 hours away by plane, try to fly to Sofia rather than Plovdiv. The...

The food, the limited variety of nightlife

I visited this resort about 4 years ago, and it really has stuck in my mind as a quite amazing place, for all sorts of reasons. I wouldnt say its a very high class resort - but this you can work out by the price! However for an affordable ski adventure, and definitely a great place to learn, I...

Having visited Borovets ski resort on a college trip in January 2000, I discovered that the place wasn't as bad as I had expected. Firstly, don't be put off by how cheap the holiday is compared to other countires - they keep the prices low to compete with places like Canada, the Swiss Alps, and...

“Underestimated resort”

published 02/04/2006

Prices and friendliness.

Icy slopes

We went skiing in Borovets in Jan 2005, we were a little apprehensive because of some of the reviews that we'd seen, but we were pleasantly surprised and I would recommend anyone to go there, and I will be going back as soon as I can. We stayed in the Rila hotel, and yes the room was basic, but...

Cheap and cheerful

Borovets is a great place to ski and you don't have to spend a fortune to go. We went two years ago and it cost just £590 for the two of us. This included ski and boot hire and liftpasses, plus lessons for me (I still feel better with an instructor!). We stayed in four star accomodation in the...

“Like a prison camp”

published 24/02/2001

cheap

food was bad, no snow

I've read some good reviews of Borovets but my experience there wasn't a good one. The hotel was dirty (The Rila). We had a small studio in the hotel itself. The food was terrible. Everything was full of calories. You could get plenty of bread with no butter (it was cheesey stuff), and loads of...

snow not too good at times

I had a great experience in borovets having snowboarding lessons, by the end of the week i could do jumps and spins.My snowboard instructer was very kind and although he only was supposed to teach us for 2 hours he stayed with us on the slopes and helped us out. The resteraunt food is very good...
