“Good hotel, but quiet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2014

This hotel is nice, although due to it's location it can be a bit quiet and is not meant for youngster / more outgoing people. It's based quite far out of the center of Golden Sands, and thus nothing much is happening around. But for the person, couple, family who likes relaxation and quietness, this place is perfect. Also the SPA facilities are exquisite. The buffet is reasonable, but nothing special. Rooms are spacious with nice balconies, and on top there is a bar that's opened in the evening. The pool is not that big, but sufficient. Also an indoor pool is available as well as a sauna and a relaxation room. Being almost on top of a hill, it takes a pretty long walk to the beach (15/20 minutes) and you will work on your legs will doing so. Also, no shops are around, so if you plan of getting something buy it at the Golden Sands and take it with you.

We have just returned from Orchideya Boutique&Spa 4* Golden Sands, Bulgaria.
Brief:
Rooms: 5* - We booked a low cost room, and we got a spacious, clean and pleasant room. Less pleasent were our german neighbours, who returned in the hotel in the middle of the night wasted, singing and laughing (the two La Vache Qui Rit).
Food: 5* - The hotel is not a giant resort, so do not expect a mile long buffet. The food is delicious, fresh, in great variety, always found something to eat.
Service: 5* - Nice staff, really made our stay unforgettable.
Location: 3* - The beach is down the hill, at cca 450m, the shortst path is through the bushes. This can be a little annoying. We never used the nearest beach (for hippies only), we used Riviera hotel's beach instead, with sunbeds and umbrellas (at the end of the season we payed only 15 Lv / day / umbrella+2 sunbeds, in high season it is cca 30Lv), and lifeguards.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

We've been in this Hotel in late Aug. 2013 with my girlfriend.
Originally, we have booked 7 nights, but after 3 nights we have rather moved to another hotel down on the street, and it happened to be a good decision even though we had to pay an extra night.
In my opinion this hotel is the best for quiet, relaxaing holidays only, as the activities are quite limited.
Overall, the rooms, and the hotel itself was pretty nice, but it was also dead in the sense that we haven't seen anyone really enjoying his vacation. In details:

Rooms:
Large, clean and luxury rooms, however the cable internet was not working. I had to ask twice the receptionist to get it fixed, but the only thing happened is that the cable was replaced. In the end I have found another socket behind the fridge, and as soon as I connected my laptop there, the Internet has started to work. Also worth mentioning that the beds are quite hard. I couldn't sleep well, and always wake up with a pain in my back.

Breakfast:
Pretty good. Breakfast was the best part during our stay.

Spa:
The inside and outside pool was nice, but cold. We thought the use of the saunas are included in the price, but in the end we had to realize that only the aromatic "sauna" and the restroom is in the price. The real saunas and the jacuzzi was something you had to pay for, and had to also book in advance.

Location:
In one word it's poor, but we knew it in advance. The last shuttle bus to the beach is at 16:00.
If you want to go out in the evening, don't forget to bring a flashlight, as the road is completely dark, and a bit dangerous to come back. (just to compare, Kini Park Hotel has a well lit dedicated stairway to the Hotel entrance)

Facilities/Services:
Lobby and sky bars are more expensive than on the beach, but the sky bar still worth one visit.
Besides the bars, and the paid spa the only entertainment is the pool table. That's all.
Not so exciting... Just to compare, the cheaper hotel we moved on offered free table tennis, billiard, table football, and live performances every night.

Overall, I would still recommend the Hotel for those who wants complete calm and relaxation during their holiday.

Room Tip: Bellow the 3rd floor the trees are blocking the see view.

I enjoyed my holiday in this very good hotel in the late summer of 2013. The rooms & baths are very big, very clean, the housekeepers changed the towels every day and arranged the room. The interior is very interesting decorated, it has a panoramic elevator. On the roof I descovered the skybar.it opens at 8pm and the barman serves coktails 4,5 lv nonalcool and 7,5 lv alcoolic, 4lv one beer. The most interesting in the bar is that when the sky is clear, the barman invited his guests to enjoy for 10 minutes the stars on the beautiful sky. The food is very good, but don't go near the deadline hours (10 for breakfast and 21 for dinner), you will not find every kind of food. the view from the balcony was great, I could see both the mountain and see.
Unfortunately, the location is not so great, it is far from the center of Golden Sands, but they are doing their best to please all their guests and the have a shuttle bus which leaves at 10, 11,14, 15,16 from hotel to the center. In fact, being a hotel for relaxation and spa, the hotel is very well placed in a quite area. I tried the free spa facilities: aromathetapy steam, relation room, gym, swimming pool. Towels for the pool and bathrobes for spa were included.
The staff is great, they help you with every problem.

Excellent place for a nice and quiet vacation with your family. Nice staff, good english speakers, food was great. A bit far from the beach but they fixed that with a nice hotel shuttle bus. The hotel and the room were clean and cozy and the view from the terrace bar was superb.I will recommend it to my friends.

I've just stayed in this hotel Jul'13, and it was worderfull. A very big room, good breakfast (not wow, but good), an adorable swimming pool, and free sun-beds by the pool. The bathroom was huge, with both a tub and shower.
There is good quality Internet in the lobby, and cable Internet in the room.
The pool bar and the sky-bar are simply wonderfull.
Definetly recommend the hotel. I've just booked a second stay there.
On the minus side: the hotel is quite far from Golden Sands, so w/o car I wouldn't recommend it. Also, even with the GPS, it was quite difficult to locate it first time. It would have been nice if they would have provided free wireless all over the hotel.

i had a business trip to golden sands and i choose to stay to a 4 star hotel for the facilities and services, to not have problems with sleep, quality of food and all the other services.
i arrived earlier ...about 9 am and they said that cannot give the room until 12 ...ok...it s normal , i tried to keep me ocupied ....wi fi , emails , orders ...things like that....WI FI IS NOT WORKING- was the answer from the receptionist and when i asked she how can i get internet acces she asked me that i can go in the city center to "internet cabin"....nice
12 i get in the room .... rooms are huge with a large balcony but wired internet (me MAC), 4+ for the rooms , furniture...alll
next day they said that the wi fi is working , true but i think that thy have a basic plan or a bad internet provider.
it was a nice staying but if you need connection i do not recommend this hotel, it is best when you are in holiday and you switch off all the devices but i didnt met this kind of person!
