First impression was what a lovely hotel, big airy room with plenty of hanging space etc, hotel was spotless , nice pool with plenty of sun loungers. but then went to the restaurant, very little choice and what choice there was was so overcooked and dry, the bread was so dry and stale, and every day/ night was the same. The all inclusive snacks were just whatever hadnt been eaten the meal before. The 2 nights of entertainment advertised was 1 night of Bulgarian dancers in the car park during evening meal . Such a shame as if they had a half decent cook and a little entertainment it would have been a great hotel. 10/10 for the cleaning staff.

Nice clean hotel but NO WiFi at all they say it’s our phone but it’s not!

Bar and restaurant staff are nice but reception staff and manager are not very approachable. Now for the food 🤢 it is very poor we have been to many countries and this is by far the worst. Ice cold vegetables is not acceptable, we ate out a few times.

Also, just be aware if you are checking out at 12pm they will charge you for staying on after this time (even if you have missed first day). Will not be returning ! 😎

This hotel was very clean and the staff friendly and helpful working 15 hr days and doubling up on jobs
This a quite hotel with nothing to do but relax
Unfortunately my stay was dampened by other guests.
Complain for all to hear when it should have been between them and the hotel . And the mis infomation they received with there travel provider.
The food wasn’t its best but my husband and I had no issue. My mother a lady who is unwell and the best of times and may not have opportunities to travel again.
Did not eat much and was frightened by the conversations been had.
I would like to thank the staff at the hotel who took care of us during our stay. Even with the language barrier as many of them spoke very little or no English they always did the best they could.

Calypso Review

Pro’s:

Two male bar tenders, fantastic with everybody, cannot fault them, one was a manager and the other recently left to go to university.

* Cannot fault the cleanliness of the rooms and reception area etc however, the outside toilet was at times unbearable and was covered in used toilet tissues. There were times I took my daughter to our hotel room instead. One the whole though, the hotel was lovely.
* Nice sized pool with good sun and shade mix.
* Plenty of seats for meal times.
* Ample number of sun loungers
* Gym was open, it was rather small, but enough for what’s required.
* Small park for young children was available and kept in a good condition, this offered a slide, swing and see-saw.
* Waiting staff were very friendly, numerous females were regularly cleaning and putting out food and made good effort with people, especially young children which was positive.

Con’s:

Total lack of entertainment, ‘Kids Club’ had mattresses and TV monitors on the floor and looked like it hadn’t been used in a long time. They said the lack of entertainment and kids club was due to COVID, however, failed to explain why on many websites they advertise these as being open.

The hotel did however offer Bulgarian dancers every Wednesday from approx 2000hrs/2040hrs. This was nice to see.

Lifeguard:
* Sleeping a LOT, many people commented on how his head would drop constantly, if he was awake, would be on his phone mostly.
* He was at times polite to the young children present however, clearly had a short fuse and at one point gave a “first and last warning” due to a young male accidentally hitting him with a small inflatable beach ball.
* Due to there being no entertainment, a male staying at the hotel asked the bar lady if he could connect his phone to the Bluetooth speaker to which she agreed. He then proceeded to play chichi wa and intended to play cha cha slide too but the lifeguard appeared from the back, spoke abruptly in a language j didn’t understand to bar girl then proceeding to turn this off. Approx 30 minutes later, he then proceeded to play numerous songs but suitable for children which included a lot of swearing, some of the songs were Tupac and Eminem which weren’t suitable for young children.

Bar girl:
Lovely initially but after approx 1hr into her shifts would be very abrupt, speak under her breath when speaking to people would slam drinks on the bar, she then walked off shift. She was subsequently fired due to many complaints but really dampened the mood.

The hotel was advertised as having 24hr, these were in reception area however more often than not didn’t work at night and would often have to get drinks from a supermarket next door.

The hotel was advertised as having a jacuzzi, this didn’t work and from seeing reviews, hasn’t for months now.

Worst Hotel i have ever stayed in, Rooms Ok but the Health and Hygiene of the food areas are shocking. Food was extremely Poor, Cold and same menu served all week, Almost looked like what was left the day before was put back out and topped up. One morning arrived for Breakfast to find a complete tray of mouldy bread. Tables were wiped with one cloth without ever being rinsed and all crumbs just pushed to the floor.
Will not reccomend this Hotel to anyone and TUI should be ashamed to offer this Hotel to anyone.

At this hotel at present , the only good thing about it is that it is clean. The food is inedible, cold , raw chicken, snotty fried eggs , food left out for entirety of service time , nowhere near what the core temperature should be . Same food , eg , chicken or pork , soup water , with chicken and veg in. Toaster not working on arrival, 5 days to get a toaster that is an easy fix
Many people were violently sick including my partner, 3 days out of 7, staff rude and miserable. AVOID, AVOID, AVOID!!

The jacuzzi is not working.
The kitchen has the same food all week.nothing new.
The carpet in the room is burnt in two places.
Curtains dirty with oil.
Bed linen with holes.
The lock on the shower door didn't work.
The shower is just awful with one door, water leaks onto the floor into the toilet.
Horror. I will never return here.

The hotel and facilities were great. What would have been a very good stay was completely ruined by the volume and type of music played. Until very late at night the volume of music was ridiculous, even guests staying at neighbouring hotels were commenting about the volume, spoiling their holiday.

We were in a Calypso hotel for the first time. I thought it was a terrible hotel, but when we arrived I realized that this is my dream place for rest and relaxation. Thanks to the whole team - manager restaurant Maria , Reception, Housekeeping, for serving the guests excellently every day. The food is delicious and varied, I highly recommend this place!

Thanks to Hotel Calypso

Is it possible to email the hotel in advance and ask for a pool view room or is it get what you're given?

I emailed them 3 weeks in advance for 2 pool view rooms and we got them.

I agree with the other comment. Pool is utter rubbish, nothing to do in the hotel for a 16 year old. The rooms aren't that big either. I wouldn't ever go back to this hotel.
