However, it was not the case here in this hotel. The Hotel Manager, Velizar Kostadinov, is doing a great job obviously. We were satisfied hotel service and cleanliness. We were eleven people all...

We chose it primarily for the all inclusive offer (with 3 small kids it was much more comfortable) and were satisfied with it.

Hello! The Hotel is more than ok, if you do not expect too much and your standards are not very high. For the ULTRA All Inclusive you actually get what you get everywhere else for All Inclusive, so the "ULTRA" is a scam. Rooms are ok, with normal furniture, bad TVs, and small balcony. The food is crappy - not...

The hotel was excellent, food was great and the staff were always friendly and helpful. We stayed for 2 weeks and only had 3 bad meals but that was just our opinion.
