This is the 3rd time we've stayed in Bulgaria and would recommend this hotel to if you require a fairly quiet location with no reps bothering you to join in day time activities.
The rooms are very spacious but basic, clean and safe and cleaned everyday without fail.
The mini bar in your room are very reasonably priced and the maids refill and keep a check on what you've have had throughout your stay.
In this hotel there is no entertainment and not much goes on in the disco either. However close by there are loads of resturants/bars etc to entertain you and the family..
The staff in the hotel are very friendly and we experienced no rudeness from staff (like a previous review). The staff in the resturant went out of their way to cater for the english and my father who is allergic to gluten. They prepared extra meals and even served them directly to his table andthen kept checking everything was okay. The staff advised is you dont see anything you like to ask and they will make it for(especially at breakfast.
The downside to this hotel is the breakfast, they do seem to cater for Germans, Swedes, Dutch, Russians etc (mainly sausages) but to be honest if you asked they made you other things.
The food in the hotel is very good, which varies everyday. My children are 16,12,11 and tried everything and enjoyed the food. As for the sweets, these always went down well. No funny tummys at all.
The pool service is great and as long as you give your pool card to the attendant he will bring you hotel towels and take you to a bed (or find you one). However, we spent most of the time at a swimming pool straight across from the hotel which hs a inflatable trampoline(in the water) and water slides.
The beach at this part of the resort is great and not as crowded at the other end. There are always beds available at a cost of 6/7levs each for a bed/matteress and parasol.
Things in Golden sands have increased in price since joining the EU but the prices are still cheap -large beer is 3.(£1) levs and cocktails are 6levs(around £2) and happy hour tends to be very popular now(last year not so many doing this offer).
I would go back to golden sands again next year but we have aleady booked for Turkey (5*) may come back the year after that. The weather was between 86 - 107 during the day (there was a heat wave )and cool at night (needed jacket/cardigan). great for everyone for sleeping
love Golden sands(harbour side), the beach the weather, loads of places to go to eat and drink.
I would recommend this for family's/couples. if you want more to do you can get the mini train to the opposite end of the resort(remember to get the train from the far end of the fishermans village as its get very full by the time it reaches this hotel)
