We booked two rooms, 2 adults and a toddler in one room, and 2 adults and 1 older child in the other. We booked via 'TravelRepublic' online (usually use Thomson/Thomas Cook) but as... More

The hotel is good, but the walls are very thin, so you could hear all that is happening in a neighbor room. It was unpleasant to hear Russian channels every evening and morning and not to have any alternative (Ukrainian ones). The food was average - not too bad, but not too good. The beach is about 5-7 minutes walk,... More
