Me and some friends visited there for a week on the 21st June and I wasn't sure on the hotel from reading reviews and because we were all inclusive and I'm a fussy eater! But I thought it was all fine!
The selection of food was good but could have done more for vegetarians, but for fussy eaters like me I lived on pasta and pizza all week but that was fine.
The rooms were spacious with a lovely bathroom with a big mirror and a walk in shower! In totel there were three mirrors in the room which is handy with three girls sharing a room!
Our balcony was nice had a table and two chairs with an ashtray. Our balcony didnt have a perfect view but I'm sure if you asked to upgrade or for a better one you would get it :).
Wifi is 10 levs a day 15 for 2 days or 20 for 3 days, I used this to contact home, it worked quite well on my phone but not so well on my friends phone so I would only pay for one day first and see how you get on with it, they do warm you that the signal for wifi might not be as good in the rooms but mine worked okay in the room and perfect on the balcony.
The area is really good, go out the front door you have lots of different shops to browse in, most selling similar things. Go out the back gate and your on the beach, turn left and you have more shops, food places and further down flower street where most of the clubs are :)
Over all I think ignore the negative reviews and get your own opinion because I thought it was great :)
