+ food was good - room was never cleaned in 3 days, sheets never changed, carpet was dirty, dead bugs everywhere, bathroom was also dirty, having a small shower “cabin”, - definetly not a 4 stars hotel - the tv was not working even when I told them to fix it, for 3 times they change batteries but with no luck - on the beach bar besides cola, fanta and mineral water you can only drink draft beer in a max 100ml plastic glass (no beet bottled or anything else) and you cannot take more than 2 glasses / person at a time, on this all inclusive 4 stars hotel :) - the sofia hotel sunbeds are all taken when we arrived at the beach, at 8:30 AM - at the hotel reception you cannot pay with Revolut card and the receptionists and their manager are all behaving weired with us. - was a awful experience and we will never come back to this hotel Some pictures below of the hotel corridor:

A short summary... We wanted to have some nice days at the golden beach and met very unfriendly staff (catastrophic). Moreover, the food was very bad and the rooms dirty. We would never book this hotel again!!!!!

All staff are friendly and can’t do enough for you. The hotel closed the day we was going home. As we had a late flight they provided us with lunch even though we was the only guest left at the hotel. The food was very good as so was the cocktails. One of the best all inclusive hotels we have been to in Bulgaria. special thanks to all at the Sofia hotel. Thank you x

Golden Sands above all has a nice beach and sea and clean water, but everything is noised by high volume music coming from few bars on the beach. All the zone is mostly populated by young guys on Holiday. In the Hotel we met only few families. The main guests were young german guys on holiday. The Reception not every time gaves complete information. All inclusive formula, but to pay 5 euro per day for security box. The restaurant. Not 4 stars quality especially at lunch and dinner. The swimming pool not well cleaned The cleaning room not completed especially the bathroom. Generally speaking in the complete hotel was rare finding an employee with kind behaviour with customers. Never a smile

Didn't stay here but went to watch the Grand Prix as they advertise an Irish Pub with Sky Sports. Irish Pub is now a German Pub but not a good one - the only draught beer they had was flat so after two pints we shifted to bottles [much more expensive]. The TV wasn't Sky Sports but we did eventually get to watch the race on a terrestrial channel
