Booked an apartment here for 3 people.
The bedroom had a very very firm mattress - not the most relaxing sleep. For the third person there was a folding armchair - again not very relaxing.
However the rooms were big, clean at check-in, a small kitchenette and a large balcony with a nice view.
The strange thing about the hotel - no elevator till the 4th floor, but there is somebody that will help you to carry the luggage.
Cleaning - only changing the towels - no vacuum cleaner (which I consider to be important for a seaside hotel), no toilet paper
Reception people - polite, but nothing more.
Breakfast was poor - quality and variety - questionable
Location - a 10-15 min walk to the beach

The hotel is well placed for bars, restuarants etc and especially for the bus stop.Clean tidy and reasonable bar prices. Friendly staff and adequate breakfast served. Quiet location.
The evening meal is poor both for quality and variety. Much better to go B&B and eat out at the many cheap restuarants. Be wary of the local taxi drivers, their prices are good but they give "duff gen" about the times and frequency of the buses

Very very big rooms, nice view from rooms, staff is good. The hotel is located on a good place not to far from the beach.

We are deffinatly coming back to Gradina. We had our best holiday ever, bacause of the service. There was very good food in the restaurant and good drinks in the bar. Nayden Stoykov and Danail Penev were so nice to us so I could have taken them home with me. I hope we will see you soon.
Thank You!

me and my partner stayed at the hotel grandina for aweek end of june begining of july.
we arrived quite late(be really careful if u don't have transfers we got ripped off with the taxi to hotel!!).the hotel is approx 30km from the airport.
the hotel was in a good location as it is right at the end of the strip of bars and restaurants.It wasn't to busy or loud. Reception were really helpful,spoke good english.we were shown to are room for the week.the lift is on the 4th floor so be aware that theres some struggle if you are any higher than 4th floor everyday with towels etc.
rooms are basic but clean.we didnt really have a good few from balcony. just trees!! although to the left you could see the sea whcih is a 10 min walk.
theres no air con and well it was very hot! there is air con downstairs in reception and bar.
the bar inside is great! victor works very hard!! its open 24hours aday.the bar by the pool is open till 11.
the pool is small and covered by afew trees so there is bits in it sometimes!! but great for cooling down in! theres also a giant chess board for the kids to play with and a little play area for them. Im not sure that theres much for young children(but thats just my opinion!) theres ALOT of bars, night clubs pub crawls and we did see a few call girls at one end of the street very near the night clubs!
overall the hotel was good if you are just using it for somewhere to shower and sleep. the one thing the hotel really missed was some entertainment,it seemed every hotel had entertainment(all be it some dodgy kareoke!) but it really missed something at night.
