Reviewed 7 October 2016

If this wasn’t an all inclusive hotel, my review was a bit different, because the facilities are ok, not a 4 stars standard, more like an 2 stars hotel, but are ok. But as an all-inclusive hotel I have to say you to avoid being accommodated here.
The food is terrible, poor quality ingredients e bad cooked. the presentation the food is awful. The drinks taste bad, and the spirits are pure alcohol, no quality at all.
Even the breakfast is bad...i only ate bread with a kind of butter (i don’t know what it was...very bad taste, they have cubes of butter immersed in iced water...terrible). the rest of the food looked like rubbish…very, very bad. In my 6 nights stay, although I went every day to the restaurant to see what was available, I only ate there in the first night.
Another thing that I noticed is that the staff was the same all days, and all hours…the same staff that serves the breakfast and lunch, serves the dinner and work In the bars till the closing hour. I don’t know the Bulgaria’s labor law, but is sounds that the employees of this hotel are being abused in excess working hours.

Me and my friend we booked this hotel for a cheap price for all inclusive. It was around €30 per person for one night . We stayed 4 nights and this is what I think about it :
- you get what you pay for; honestly it was not a big problem what happened to us because we came to have fun outside of the hotel. So we were just sleeping couple of hours and leave.
- mold in the hotel room;
- dirty towels since we arrived. Nobody changed them;
-almost nobody speaking English ;
-no secure parking area as the website says;
-carpet is all wet in the room because of the water from the bathroom due the fact that the water from the shower can not leak in the Wright place.
- you need to pay for the internet around €10 euros and you can use it just on one device. Really ??? Îs 2016. I have phone, laptop , tablet.


- a fabulous spa with really good prices;
- food was acceptable;
- swimming pool really nice;

So is a good place to stay in if you need a place to sleep and just this. And is worth it at around €20 euros a night.

As an English family of 10 this hotel really let us down. We only ate toast or cereal for breakfast. There are snack times round the pool which consist of cold pizza n weird veg. 12 o'clock there's ice cream which was a plus. The soft drinks were awful apart from the cola which was sweet. The animation team done there best but we're not very entertaining and didn't speak much English. The pools we loved, but the 2 children who spent most of the time in the pools ended up with fungi infections- one had it in her ear the other was a rash. The loungers had no cushions so hurt your back- everyone put their towels on them at night! Some loungers would have towels on them alday till 2-3pm until the occupiers actually used them. The rooms were not nice. Our window in the shower didn't close, the beds were hard and curtains had rips. The plug sockets were unsafe too.
We loved Bulgaria but wouldn't stay here again.

So, I'll tell you guys about my all experience in this hotel. We came to hotel at 4pm~, so we got instantly the room. ( I heard the story, that one family came out before the 2pm, when they are starting to give rooms, and they had to wait for like 2 hours, and they didn't even to put baggage into baggage room ). Receptionist wasn't really friendly, I didn't like her. The guy, who was bringing our baggage to our room, he was really surly, he hardly was speaking Russian or English, but he shown us the main things. There was air conditionaires in rooms, they were working, not really good, but enough. Janitors come there every day and they put you shampoo, taking everyday towels, and replacing them new ones. Beds are comfortable, there's much space. Okay, then on.. Food.. Well, it's really tasty. There's all the time the swedish table, basically there's food for every food ration. You can choose there between really lot of food. There was no time, that I couldn't make my stomach full all the time. You can dont worry about that. There was all the time choise between much drinks. There's lot of juices, you can get sprite, fanta, cola, just as you wish. My mom only told me one problem of this hotel - You have to go every morning to bunks near swimming pool, and put your towels on them, that no one could take it. There's really funny staff in this place also ( not including the receptionists ). Every day we had like kid discos at 9.30PM, there was aerodinamics on the pool for women, also games for men in pools, there was dart contests, where you could win massages, or other prizes. There was also many games for kids, some kind of easier than darts, and also with prizes. There's like a small house in that hotel also, where adults can leave their kids, and Animation team works with em, doing some cool things, and other things:) Every night, before the sleep there was just another show. Every time another show, and they was really good. I liked them so much. Well if you are planning to go there, that's a pretty nice hotel, but I could rate it only 3.5/5. There's some problems, which you gotta fix though. :)

Room Tip: Try to get a room, where you do get a morning sun. And not on the last floors, becouse even air cond...
