Karolina Complex is a great place for couples and families with kids as well, because everyone will find his own favorite spot there- next to the nice swimming pool, in a special kids zone or in the Bohemian_style pool bar.
There is a very relaxing aura there, I'm telling you, you will return like I did. I even bought an apartment in this complex because of that feeling.
The 2 bartenders from the pool bar in the complex are very friendly and I always got a fresh pink flower as a decoration with my drink or a drink in real coconut shell :). And you should try the waterpipe/ kaljan there, as well.

Room Tip: Higher corner floors have a nice view

We stayed at Karolina in August with two kids, staff not friendly and sometimes very rude, do not understand English, rooms were cleaned once in three days, towels changed once in four days, food not nice and sometimes not fresh, fruits were frozen, water in the swimmingpool always very cold, beach is about 5-7min from hotel, you need to go to the beach through bushes and dirty sand, also beach staff was not friendly at all.
I travelled a lot, i never complained, i like to enjoy my holidays, but these holidays I did not enjoy.

Room Tip: Rooms to the bar are very noisy

I had booked with Skoosh.com who later assured me that my reservation was for a hotel room. When I came to the hotel I was handed the keys in a paper CD cover and dragged together with my wheelchair-using dad around the whole complex to be put into an apartment with no telephone or toilette paper, wires sticking out of the A/C socket, fungus smell in the bathroom, and wifi signal, however advertised, barely reaching our balcony. Going down to the reception to have the issues sorted, I faced two grumpy ladies (one of them being unfortunately the hotel manager) who only kept repeating that they were not able to help me while rolling their eyes and telling each other in Bulgarian what a jerk I was not realizing that I could still understand them although I was speaking in English... There were rotten apples in a plastic bag next to the elevator on our floor upon our arrival. They were only taken away by the maids three days later after I had put our rubbish next to the, by that time, apple purée. The hot water stopped running twice during our one-week stay and it took 24+hrs to get that fixed having to make numerous calls to a Bulgarian property manager and making him to send one of his staff over (a flier was put up next to the elevator during our stay saying the guests were going to be charged 20Leva if they turned the heater to a maximum causing it to malfunction). Finally, only the EDGE of the beach is about 250mtrs from the closest corner of the complex but then you still have to cross about 200mtrs strip of sand, bushes, and rubbish using apparently decades-old wooden walks in a very deteriorated state (watch for splinters, nails, and loose slabs). On a similar note, be aware that the hotel pool did not have almost any sun at all throughout the whole day (end Aug/beg Sept). On the other hand, I must say that the hotel restaurant was great with nice atmosphere, friendly service, and very tasty food... In the end, Skoosh.com sent me an email about two weeks ago to ask me for my feedback on Karolina. I briefly described the story, the review was then showing as pending for a couple of days and then when I checked back a few days ago, it told me that I had not submitted any reviews yet...
