Nice hotel.. The food was really good - really tasty, not so much to choose from, but we always chose something. Staff was really friendly!! We absolutely loved them. Rooms wasn’t that bad.. Be careful with WC locker :D. But like I wrote, rooms were average. I really recommend this hotel, you will be more than happier.

Family of 3 with 15 year old son stayed here August. Hotel very basic, fairly small but ok for just a base. We chose half board but never actually ate there as never liked the look of any of the food and once we'd been out once and seen how cheap and nice it was at loads of surrounding restaurants we were never going to. Pool good size, nice and clean. pool bar ran by teenage girls who were not interested in being there or particularly useful and seemed to have friends hanging around all the time distracting them from paying guests. So overall hotel very average but fantastic location for nice beach and whole array of restaurants, bars and shops and really cheap place to visit.

Honestly avoid like the plaque, I never believed reviews tbh but from now on I will without a doubt. We have just returned after booking a week all inclusive second day in we downgraded to bed and breakfast as it was horrendous, food was shocking, staff were rude, bar ran by teenagers it was a disgrace it really was. My partner will eat anything but he literally couldn’t find a thing, didn’t even have chips. I will never return to this hotel ever however we will return to sunny beach. Honestly save your cash there are much better places to stay

Stayed for one week. 2 adults 1 child squished into small room that only just fitted 3 beds an every limited floor space. No kettle or hairdryer in room 1 free electrical socket in room Rooms NEED decorating Toilet leaked and was constantly noisy filling itself. Toilet brush, shower curtains was completely worn. Wall paper ripped and falling off the wall. All conclusive food was dry and terribly, looks ok but avoid everything is dry with the flavour cooked out of it days b4 including breakfast. All inclusive bar and pool bar was ran by teenagers who played music that suited them. (mostly Bulgaria dance and the music I could understand had slot of swear word not suitable for the many children at the pool) Teenage friends of bar staff propped up all inclusive bar most nights and where mocking guest who asked for drinks. No entertainment at all in hotel Pool bar not all conclusive Receptionists staff snappy #My son loved the pool it was clean and a great size. # cleaners in rooms where extremely friendly, and took pride in their work

Where do i start with this review, we checked in and although we had booked 2 rooms at the same time we were 3 floors apart,coincidentally next to lift shaft for both rooms? The room was tiniest ive ever seen but that was only the beginning of the horror that was about to unfold. Flooring was hazardous to say the least,bed had random planks of wood to support an inch thin mattress but 1 big chunk was left open. Top of mini fridge hadn't been cleaned for some time,sheets and bed cover stained,random pieces of concrete infill on floor but the horror was about to get worse with faeces left in the toilet(boak). Only 1 set of towels,1 glass and 1 chair on the equally filthy balcony overlooking the car park!!!! When we asked to be moved we were told hotel full,but then when we complained to our booking provider the manager could suddenly offer us 4 different alternatives???? Other rooms were slightly larger but with equal amounts of squalor, wallpaper hanging off walls and just generally unkempt. We got a refund and left

Never again. The rooms are disgusting and supper old. Smells awful. Nothing like in the pictures. If you want a pleasure and comfortable stay don’t come. The breakfast is fine, but not the best. I will never come again here

good place for the price with a big varied breakfast included in the price. cant complain about much except the cleaning lady accidentally walked in a few times so remember to put the do not disturb sign out ! cleanliness was good but not excellent but good enough, the pool was nice with free lounge chairs and the staff were pretty nice. I'm going again this year so that says something.

We arrived to be greeted by a friendly lady on reception, she had someone help us up the stairs with our bags......great. Get to our room and it had not been cleaned and the bed had been slept in so we got moved straight way to another room and the staff couldn’t be apologetic enough, the cleaners on the other hand had attitude from what we could tell but were speaking in their own language (body language says it all) Got into our second room and the bathroom was a wet room not ideal when the shower is straight over the toilet and then wets everything in there including the toilet roll of not moved and makes it really slippery, we weren’t a fan. Food- breakfast was ok, always came out cold but was edible we survived, lunch was not the best we had one day it wasn’t too bad but the rest including dinner was vile, either over cooked or under cooked, swimming in fat and cold. I am not fussy and tend to eat anything and have never had an issue before, but even I couldn’t stomach most of the food that was out. The food was laid out on one bar so selection was limited iv had more choice in all the other all inclusive hotels I have stayed in previously. Staff are young but friendly enough. Drinks were not the best but it is what it is. Beer was nice. The beach is a few minutes away and easily accessible, the bar strip is about 15 minute walk so not far and is lively. Restaurants around the hotel are lovely as we tried most of these due to not eating at the hotel, the Chinese one round the corner was beautiful, there is a karaoke bar just round the corner too which was good fun. Everything was local so that’s the only good point I could really say.
