We stayed twice in this hotel and we had a very good experience both times! I would recommend the sea view rooms that have a small balcony with a very nice sea view. The food is varied and tasty. Stuff is very helpfull, smiling and treat guests very polite, some of them speaking various languages, making guests feel comfortable. Near... More

By far the biggest selling point of this hotel is its contemporary style, cleanliness and the exceptional friendliness of the staff. The location is good if you like a thriving, busy area, however it wasn't our cup of tea. The whole hotel was always clean. The room was a reasonable size, however the bathroom was so small you could stand... More

From the outside and in public areas the hotel is beautiful, modern look, well maintained, soft green grass at the beach etc, but the rooms are something entirely different: lack of proper maintenance, ~30 year old furniture, worn, hard beds. The AC was dripping water (seems for a long time, because the desk started to rot because of the water).... More

On arrival early morning we were given a small room with view of adjoining walls!! We paid to upgrade, I would have paid double, and were shown a large double room with larger shower room. 3 rd floor but no problem as there are lifts. We now had side sea views. From that moment on the holiday experience started. The... More

We stayed at the Golden Beach for 11 nights on an all inclusive basis. If we were to travel here again (which we would) we would probably go half board or self catering as there's so many nice places around to eat and drink. The room was basic but had everything you need. Beds are quite uncomfortable though. The bathroom... More

Hmm.......undecided whether" I am in or out?" If this hotel was rated as a 3 star then I suppose I would rate it as good but if classed as a 4 star then it would be below average.
