My friends and I spent our Easter holiday at Hotel Kristal in Golden Sands and I must say it was by far the best hotel we've ever stayed in. The hotel is a little far from the beach, but you can get there in approximately 10 minutes walking. Anyway, we didn't care so much since it was not summer. The rooms are clean and spacious; our rooms were located on the 2nd floor and the balcony was huge (it gets smaller on superior floors, because of the architecture) - just to make a picture of its size: we spent one evening all 8 of us in one balcony, in 8 big chairs and around 2 tables! The food was varied and tasty - chicken, fish, beef, pork, lamb, fruit, vegetables and lots of sweets. The only problem was the uneducated Romanian crowd (sorry, but I really have to mention this) - although we were indicated different hours for lunch and dinner in order to avoid queues, people came whenever they wanted and refused to leave the lunch hall even though they were only drinking some coffee (thing which, of course, could have been done better in the lobby bar section), while others were wandering with the plates in their hands in search of a seat. Anyway, the staff was great, they really tried to do everything right, the waiters were nice, the receptionists as well, even the cleaning ladies knew how to smile at us. They cleaned the rooms every day and sometimes we felt so embarrassed that we just put the "do not disturb" sign on our door to make their working day easier and shorter. The indoor pool was not very large, but enough for all of us to have a great time - the lifeguard, Iulian, was very strict with the rules: you had to take a shower before diving into the pool, no drinks, no jumping, no splashing, liked it! All in all, it was a great holiday and I am not only speaking on my behalf: all 8 of us were more than satisfied and we'll definitely choose Kristal Hotel again!
