I have recently came back from this hotel with 10 of my family and after staying there for 2 weeks it's fair to say it's a really good hotel as a whole... There is a small games room with a number of table games and arcade games which you have to pay for a small fee at reception to play... More

All in all a good stay, but some of the staff were not welcoming or friendly. Not all of course! Some of them tended to sigh and speak to their coworkers in bulgarian right... More

It was my second time this hotel so I knew what to wait. The hotel itself is ok, clean, pool area good and the location a little bit out from noice. If you wait excellent all-inclusive, this is not your place. Local beer and drinks were ok, the food was below average. But it is so cheap to eat somewhere... More

When you see the pictures of this hotel, with the nice lobby, pools and pretty large rooms, you might think you're up for a treat. But you're wrong.
