“don`t book this hotel”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2010

*The staff is unfriendly and careless
*maintanance problems which nobody solve. For instance:3 days I was asking to fix my phone in the room, nobody came.
*Very nice view in the room to the sea but no option to open the window, so no fresh air.
*We had 4 rooms and as we came to check out found a long bill of charges on our room, things that we didn`t take from the minibar, wine and water has been stuffed to this bill without any signatures of ours and without any proof! No chance to manage or understand, nobody to talk to (managers) and all this under a grate pressure of time
because of the flight. If you don`t pay they keep your passport. Grate dissapointment!!!
*If you want to enjoy your vacation don`t book this hotel. Not 5* and even not 2*(stars).

the hotel is not really a five star, unless a very basic one ! Rooms are huge with separate loo and bath (nice) but the shower head flooded the bathroom eachtime - shampooos etc were particularly revolting!
Dining room and food quite basic (as vegetarians we basically eat raw veg), no drinks, not even tap water included at dinner.
On check out they tried to charge us 50 euros for alleged missing safe key (it was on the safe , not in keyhole)
However the hotel is in a fantastic position, on top of casino on beach front, nice pool, great resort, dont need to avoid the hotel, just dont expect luxury

We stayed at the International Hotel, Golden Sands for my husbands 40th Birthday. We could not believe the standard of the hotel. The bedroom was exceptionally large and the staff friendly and very helpful. On the day of my husbands birthday I asked the restaurant manager to arrange a cake and booked a table in the restaurant. We were treated like royalty. We had five staff waiting our table. The whole cost for the meal, cake and drinks for all the staff came to £30.00.
Golden Sands is a beautiful resort, beach very clean. Restaurants plentiful and extremely cheap. The cost of a beer ranged from £1.00 at the hotel to 30p at the beach.
The food was excellent quality.
It is well worth a trip into Varna, the city is steeped in history.
We met a local taxi driver (Ilya, pronounced illecha) he took us on a trip of the island that lasted from 9am to 7pm and he only charged £30.00. He often brought my sons home after they had been clubbing.
If we ever went back to Golden Sands we would definately stay at the International Hotel.
