Right on the beach there is a tavern with the romantic name Seashells, which is open during lunchtime in the summer. Grilled food, salads and desserts, light snacks, as well as soft drinks and alcohol are offered here to guests.

Ultra All InclusiveThe All Inclusive System

The service on offer is one notch higher than the usual all inclusive system –waiters, good quality crockery, оriginal imported alcohol of the best famous brands.

The hotel is not sparing and, for example, offers less well-known vodkas and оnly authentic Stolichnaya and Smirnov. If a guest asks for water, he is given a sealed bottle, not a glass, and all carbonated drinks, juices are in their original packaging.

The majority of St. Raphael’s guests order ultra all inclusive. Drinks and food are free everywhere, excluding the restaurant located in the mаrina, but there is wonderful food to try here!

Italian, Japanese, and European cuisines are offered by 5 restaurants, including a new restaurant on the beach where grilled food is cooked – both meat and seafood – all included!
