We visited this hotel in early June. Everything was fine . We were all inclusive , meals could be more varied , at breakfast the same thing for dinner. Nice and clean , close to everything . Nice pool outside and inside , friendly service. Poor knowledge of English. Greetings from Polish .

They do not change towels more than every 3 days, the staff does not speak English and are incompetent, the food is like a bad school lunch. Its very noisy and dirty! Saw a cockroach! Unless you are on a very tight budget and do not care where you sleep, do not go there.

Shipka is in a central position for all activities in Golden Sands esp. the nightlife. Everything starts there. It is a good hotel where u can find everything (supermarket, gym, a clean pool, spa, exchange service, etc.) And not far away from the beach.
