We have spent our vacation at St. Nicola twice already (in 2007 and 2008), staying in this penthouse condo and we strongly recommend it!
We are a family of three, the most important being 3 1/2 years old currently and as you can imagine almost everything revolves around him. We have found this resort and this particular condo to be the perfect location for both spending time together and at the same time having some quality time as a couple.
You can easily stay in the penthouse all day long if you wish. The penthouse is spacious and allows to enjoy different activities at the same time - one can drink his/her morning coffee peacefully at the dining room balcony while another is checking email; at the same time the child could be screaming and splashing water all over the enormous upper floor terrace (providing of course you have conveniently arranged for a Granny to join you for your vacation!)
The apartment has all the extras needed for all the routines of a small child, for cooking and for feeling at home.
If you don't enjoy staying in though, then there is enough to do out - lay by the pool, get a drink or a snack at the pool bar or restaurant or take the short walk to the beach and spend the day salty and sandy (you should have in mind the beach umbrella and chairs have a daily fee you need to pay separately). You can also decide to spend the day in a nearby resort village or city - Chernomorets, Sozopol or Burgas and walk around or enjoy their beaches.
In the evening you may choose the intimacy of your condo (it has all the amenities for cooking your own dinner), you may check out the Serbian cook of the complex restaurant, or explore Sozopol for places to eat fish bought the same morning from the local fishermen.
The only disadvantage in the last two years was the construction going on around the complex but it was expected to be completed by the end of 2008 season.
I believe if you choose this vacation venue, then all will be up to you to have a great stay!
