Where to stay?

Hi, I'm looking at Borovets for a first time Skiing holiday for my Kids (4 & Cool. Really interested to know about great hotels near the lifts / ski school that have a pool and other stuff to do for the afternoons when I'm sure they will be tired and I'm fed up lugging their equipment around. Can anyone help?

Hi. We just stayed at the Yanakiev right by the slopes which is a lovely peaceful and comfy hotel of a good standard. I don't think they have any kindergarten which the Rila may have though. Plenty of rooom for snowman making and sledging nearby. Swimming pool is good with lots of kids in there and is included. Other spa and sauna stuff extra beyond one free go.

hello Colin i stayed at the Ela Last year , its a good basic hotel, the food was very good with plenty of choice , the wi fi was great , but on some nights there was a bit of late night noise (my room was on the front )ive stayed at the breza just up the road from the ela (find them on google earth street view) the hotel was about the same as the ela but the food was very bland with not a lot of choice , the same at the hotel moura , just over the road from the ela. the resort is very compact and unless you pick a hotel that is on the oputskirts of the town everything is within short walking distance . just be aware that , as you have a family there are some "adult bars/strip joints" on the main street , there not a big problem but irs only right that you should be aware of them. I don't know about ski schools ,as ive always had lessons with the main school Borosport which was booked with my holiday. and as we don't have any kids I don't know much bout kindergarten, ive oftain been in the white magic resteraunt and Bar and the owner Cristo and his family and staff were always very welcoming to family,s . hope this helps .Dave

Hi
so many hotels near to the lifts in Borovets, with the larger hotels having pools and the likes.
Look on trip advisor at each hotel and see what takes your attention as each has its own qualities. Eating out is cheap, so don't be put off about luke warm food!
Rila hotel has a ski nursery ski/play school- possibly others, just research and find what suits you!
Have a great time!

re:Where to stay?

Hi Colin

There are lots of great hotels near the centre of the resort which does not necessarily mean that they will be noisy. Most are set back from the road a bit which helps. The big hotels have pools like Rila, Samokov or Flora. You may be a member of the Facebook group 'Borovets 2017-Snow, skiing, boarding and everything else - information group'.

re:Where to stay?

The Rila and Samakov hotels have pools, but after staying in Borovets for 12 years plus I would not recommend either. There are some spa hotels built over the last few years but they are not in the centre of resort. You can pay to use the pools though.
