I stayed here 3 nights with a tour group package. It was just okay, but older and plain, beige rooms and seemed like a budget place. There are lots of stairs as it is in a hilly setting, so not for those with mobility issues. The rooms are like little cabins set in the trees, so a nice setting. Unfortunately mine was under oaks and I am a light sleeper, so the acorns falling on the metal roof in the winds at night woke me. Bed was just okay, a little soft. There is a good size fridge which was handy, and stove (didn't use) and basic dishes, small table and chairs. Bathroom older and quite small, but shower worked fine. I could often smell a sewer odour, though. A blow dryer was available if you asked at the front desk. Each room has a small veranda with a clothes drying rack that was handy. There is a small beach down the hill, but keep in mind it is river stone, not sand. It was fairly crowded when I was there; I just walked around.
The one thing that was truly awful were the included breakfasts - all 3 were small and bad. (Ex: wieners, small piece of white bread and some wilted cucumber. One day we had an egg casserole square, with sliced wieners in it, but it was stone cold. Everyone complained. Things like ketchup, tea and cream are extra, by the way, though not much money. Small cup of coffee, but refill extra. There are lots of stray cats around, so most of us took our breakfast for the cats). Some people in my group went to the restaurant one evening (it is open sided/semi-outdoor) and had good food they ordered, and there was dancing and free vodka shots were given to celebrate the coming of Sept. - they said it was a lot of fun.
Up the hill to the entry lane to the property there are some small grocery stores for snacks and liquor, and vegetable and fruit sellers that I bought stuff from (as well as Crimean herb teas - much cheaper than sold elsewhere in the area).
