Good location for reaching the beach, but bad location, because nearby hotels are very noisy. Very, very, very bad wi-fi in the room, average wifi in reception and near pool. Very, very, very bad working lifts. Very sad staff, especially in restaurant and abnormal staff in reception. We have ordered room with sea view, but we get a room with... More

The Food wasn't the best, but you aren't in golden sands to eat. The Barkeeper(Poolbar) has a very nice bird and he looks very rich with his gold chain. He is a very nice guy (nohomo). If i come back the this Hotel, it's because of Peter an the bird.

Hotel overall was somewhat dull, the rooms were OK, however, the breakfast and evening meals were just awful. In fact the evening meals were so poor that despite having paid for half board, we ate out 5 nights out of 7. At breakfast they would run out of bread rolls by 9am!!!!

Rooms are comfortable and clean, bathrooms are large enough to feel comfortable inside. The workers there are not flexible and un-pleasant. The quality of the food is not great at all, and the choice is not so interesting. The strongest point of this hotel is the place and the view: just great!

Great location, good view from the balcony and close to the beach. WIFI available in all the hotel. Rooms are not well equipped. Food wasn't so good. Good value for money. All in all it wasn't a bad stay..

My husband and I stayed at the Shipka Hotel from June 28,2015 until July 2, 2015. First of all, the air conditioner didn't work properly and they tried to convince us that we didn't really need it, while the weather was quite hot! Well, they finally fixed it. The rooms are very plain but ok. When asking for an extra... More
