Even a simple recreation at local black sand, which is rich in iron and is considered extremely useful for the musculoskeletal system, will be useful.

Pomorie Grand Hotel – Balneohotel Pomorie
The leading hotel of Pomorie, which offers exactly the complex of medical procedures. The main advantage – you do not have to stand in queues every day in the hospital or to stay in the ward with other people, all the treatment will take place in comfortable conditions of the hotel.
Note that in old reviews this hotel is called Balneohotel Pomorie, and in new – Pomorie Grand Hotel. In fact it is the same hotel.
Sunset Resort 5 *
One of the largest hotel complexes in Pomorie. Its advantages – the excellent level of service and comfort, and minuses – its location. The hotel is located in the new part of Pomorie, quite far from the old city center (30 minutes walk or 5 minutes by bus, fare – 2 levs).
In fact – it is a luxury variant of the preceding hotel, with all its pluses and minuses.
The Vineyards Resort
This hotel is quite far from the city, at the northern tip of Lake Pomorie. It is believed that the mud in that side is little “stronger” and has a rich black color. Not far from the hotel there is a small town of Aheloy.
The last hotel in our selection, where there is a really worthy complex of therapeutic procedures. Unlike previous variants, it is suitable for thrifty tourists, who do not have the ability to pay for five-star service, but have the desire to improve their health.
Directly at the hotel there are no medical procedures. The main reason why we included it into our selection – a convenient location (close to the beach and a 5-minute walk from the hospital) and an information about the mud therapy on the hotel’s website. At least, the hotel staff will provide you with the necessary information. This is not too bad, actually.
The reason why we have added this hotel to our sellection, is similar to the previous variant – it is located close to the hospital and in a beautiful place. Hotel staff knows about the features of mud therapy and can help you in case of any problems.
