We have been in late august 2013 for a week with our toddler. The resort is located in Mamaia Sat, next village from Mamaia towards Navodari. The complex is a little too big for my taste (there are 7 buildings 8 floors each, stacked near the pool area), and crowding will occur especially at breakfast.
The pool area is nice, and the beach is sandy and clean. However the beach staff is not very helpful l (probably because they are a little too far from the management (;-)) and therefore cannot be seen, -for a sun bed mattress you’ll have to deal by yourself. Best asset – long walk on the beach can be done, especially in the night, with lots of star too see (on a clear sky night).
The restaurant areas are very crowded, especially in the morning (it’s quite an adventure to get some food with a little child following you), but otherwise the food is tasty and you’ll have a dish choice.
The rooms are spacious and nice, with a large balcony (if there is located towards the see or Mamaia, the view worth the money). Bathroom is not very well maintained (we had a whirlpool bathtub not very clean, and a smelly floor trap….) things not acceptable in my opinion for a 4 star hotel.
The staff generally is helpful. The location is child friendly, with an “old generation playground” , but the activities done for children especially are funny and they seem to love it.
In short, quite expensive for Romania, but with a few similar alternatives it remains on top. Maybe the minuses shown will be corrected.
