First time in Bulgaria and would definitely stay here again. Good location, about 200 mtrs through wooded area to the beach and just a short stroll to the start of the tourist strand in Golden Sands. Good sized, nicely decorated rooms which were cleaned every day. Two large well maintained pool areas with plenty of sun beds and clean towels supplied as required. The added greenery in this area is a nice touch and the well maintained planted areas and fountains provide a classy exterior to this hotel. It was noticable that cleaning was ongoing throughout the day in all areas. There was a wide variety of good quality food at all meals and whilst there was obviously some recycling, this was to be expected in an all inclusive hotel. The main restaurant had a conservatory type roof and didnt appear to be air conditioned so it was quite warm in there unless you managed to get a table by the opened windows. We mainly sat in the area close to the buffet which was air conditioned.
Most of the staff were very friendly and in particular, Vladi and the animation team were excellent. As well as organising the evening entertainment, they arranged some poolside games which weren't over the top or noisy, thus allowing plenty of relaxation time.
One suggestion to the hotel would be to have some maps, information leaflets or excursion ideas available for those customers who don't have a holiday rep.
