Full review

its a pleasant location, very pretty and while I was their the resort was very quiet My skis and equipment arrived four days after I did so I found myself looking for other things to do. Their was the hotel pool, gym, walks in the forest and not much more. The shopping centre consisted off a of a few small shops and a shopping centre which consisted of three sovereign type shops and a ski shop! The taxis are very expensive 25 Levis for a 2 mile ride, and so is the resort, even accounting for the poor pound exchange rate. Italy was about the same price The slopes were quite, almost empty although lacked snow, what was their was hard packed and icy. Another minus is they shut at 16.30 My hotel - the Belmout - was a lovely hotel but the food was average, staff were nice, but English was a problem as it was in the rest of the resort The transfer time to Pamporovo is around three and a half to four hours from Sofia airport which on the return leg meant getting up at 3am! Would I go again, probably not to Pamporovo
