“I will definitely visit it again!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2013

My boyfriend and I stayed here for week last summer. We really enjoyed the food,the service, the staff was so friendly and understanding. What I enjoyed the most was the animation - they were so funny that I couldn't stop laughing during their shows. This summer we are planning to go back to Park Hotel Odessos so to have another unforgettable holiday. I hope we meet there the friends we made in the face of staff.

Room Tip: Ask for room with sea view - you will really enjoy the view.

Stayed here for 3 nights on an all inclusive package and I have to say it is one of the worst hotels I have ever eaten in in my life..... They serve chicken nuggets and fish fingers every day like school dinners, I don't mind food like that sometimes(not every night) but everything is done on a budget and of a poor standard. They serve from 6.30-9pm on an evening but we went at 8.15 and everything was cold, we complained about this and were told that the chef goes home at 8! The rooms are big and spacious and very clean. The swimming pool area is quite small but we never struggled for a bed which was good. The staff in the lobby bar were so lovely, however the staff on the pool bar were awful and made it clear they didn't want to be their. We raised our issues about the food and how bad it was with the managers as we were leaving, and to be fair they did give us a discount and I have to say that they dealt with the matter very professionly. However I will not be returning to this hotel because the food was so bad.

We have just returned from 5 day stay at Hotel Odessos.

The hotel has a 4 star rating.

To be honest it is at best 2/3 star.

Our stay was at the begining of the summer season. We assumed that the accomodation would be in tip top condition.

Our room was acceptable with a pleasant seaview. However some of the public areas were in need of revamping. In particular the main bar area.

The 'All Inclusive' option is not worth the extra money. The quality of both the food and drink is so poor that you will inevitably choose to eat and drink elsewhere. Alternatives are cheap and plentyful.

I would strongly recommend not visiting the resort before the 1st of June as this is when the resort is expected to be fully open.

We went to this hotel in spring time, "all inclusive" 3 nights trip . The rooms are clean, new furniture and renovated bathrooms. I should say something about food provided. It was ok, a lot of salads, but seemed not to be enough (we were there on Easter, the hotel was full and it was hard for us to find a free table in rush hours. Oh, what we've been through to have our meals!!!! Horrible!) and there was no festive dinner in order to celebrate this holy day, no special programs! The barthender never smiled and always showed an excess of zeal in his job. The hotel has a spa area (sauna, jacuzzi). Thos was the best part of all!! If you travel by car, pay attention to the parking lots. There are only a few. If you travel in the summer, you must know that the pool is not very big, but clean and the beach is 15-20 minutes away. I wasn't very excited by Golden Sands! There was nothing to do there (no even bicycles to rent)! In conclusion, I would go back to Park Hotel Odessos only if it would be located somewhere else than Golden Sands.

The beach is 5 minutes walk downhill. Hotel at quiet end of a busy resort. Rooms fine, apart from disabled access. Food good mostly, if not vegitarian. Tourist-bland. A little more variety would help. Later arrivals at a disadvantage.
Pools ok, at 2.30pm in shadow, life guards come with attitude. Entertainment for children very good, if repetative (but kids like that). Bars ok, pool bar staff variable. Reception staff variable (depends who you get). Turkish Bath, excellent.
Clients, mostly German & East European. Staff speak English (in addition to German & Russian).

Stayed there from the week of 27 June to 4 July 2011. Worst hotel experience in my whole life.
Food during lunch and diner was served cold. When we complained we were told to use the microwave since the Bulgariens and Russians eat their meals cold. This from a so called 4 Star hotel and we had the All inclusive package. We been to the Goldens Sands before and never heard of this.The rooms only received clean towels and a minor clean up. Althought we left tips everyday for the housekeeping the chweing gum in the bathroom was not remove for fours days as also the wrapper in the bedroom which we left as a test. Under the toilet bowl there had was still the droppings from the previous user. It looked like it hadn't been cleaned by weeks.
Steps by the pool was damaged and the hotel guest took the broken piece to the hotel employee and nothing was done during our stay. Neither blocke the step and trying to repair it. This hotel was build in 2004.

Room Tip: Please always check the reviews for the hotel and check your room upon arrival!

Great value hotel in top location. Whilst the 150m to the sea is as the crow flies it is max 10 minute walk down the hill. On the way you will pass some restaurants and little shop units.

Hotel itself is only 6 years old and was built in 6 months. There are photos by the restaurant entrance and makes a great read. The quality has not been compromised in any way and the quality reflecting the 4 star (bulgarian) standard is shown. I would class this hotel as a 3.5 by UK standards.

We visited as the season was drawing to a close and that made the resort bearable. The pool area for the hotel is OK but would not wish to try and get a bed in high season. The loungers are free but if you wish to have a mat a charge of 2 lev is made.

Rooms are large and offer twin or double bed with some having sofa beds as well. We had a sea view and would recommend even if you have to pay a premium as otherwise you will be looking at a road with a restaurant and the odd shop unit below you. The pool is situated in the back of hotel which is a plus but the drawback is that the sun is gone by 4pm.

In room safe is chargeable at 34lev (1week) and 48 for 2. Would recommend the spa and tretments are reasonably priced. Breakfast is buffet style, hot and cold with plenty of fruit. Two sitting betweens 0730-1030 but you can turn up anytime.

The restaurants along the sea side offer a wide variety of choices and different prices. It is worth shopping around and do stop and talk to the people outside as some will give you deals. It cost nothing to look. Two decent places for the cheaper option Evergreen (nice mix grills for about £7 main) and Leonardo (pizza and pasta). Also for something more expensive but worth the visit for the sea view tables and the band (played for 4 hrs on/off) is Dolphin restaurant.

Sunloungers on beach are charged at standard 7 lev each, some charge for mats an extra 3 lv and umbrella at 7 lev. This is daily so bear this in mind. There is the odd 'free zone' basically just sand where you can spread your towel and enjoy. Alternatively the many beach side pool bars offer loungers and umbrella from 3 lev each and then you are with 50m of the sea.

To get to hotel from airport there is a direct bus No. 409 that goes to the Riviera resort (last stop at golden sands). From there it is a 5-10 minute walk uphill to the hotel. Road by bus stop by where cabs are parked. DO NOT GET A CAB FROM BUS. Alternatively the guide price from airport to Golden Sands is 30 lev for cab. Bus operates 7 days and between 6am-11pm and takes abour 1.5 hrs. Price is 3 lev each way with 1 lev charge for large bags. Hotel will charge you approx 60 lev for cab. We negotiated directly with cabbie and he took 35 lev from resort to airport. I must mention that I am Bulgarian so that would have helped get better price but ultimately the hotel will rip you off. I have the cabbie's number if you want it contact me and will disclose.

Other than that it is a fab hotel which is just perfect for enjoying the madness of the resort in high season but far away not to hear it if you wish to rest.
