Our room was fantastic, really big, comfortable bed, modern and clean bathroom and good sized balcony. Food in the restaurant was good, not the best I've ever had but for a...

Even fruits, can't find an answer where they managed to find to buy such tasteles fruits, cause if to buy in a store or market fruits are delicious.... wine from plastic bottles, beer tastes like diluted. On the whole there are no alcodrinks that would be...

Really good place for vacation. A little bit far away from the sea (~10 min), but it has huge pool near, so you can choose. Delicious food, helpful staff (except one young girl bartender at lobby bar). Rooms are clean and tidy, but a little bit tiny. City centre is ~25 min on foot.

This was the only one available on my short trip to Golden Sands. I am glad it was. It is much better priced than the others in the same area and is perfect for simply a place to crash out. The best part is that breakfast is free. I am not sure if dinner is free but it was for...

Hotel Sofia is located on the second line from the beach (5 min. walking). To reach the beach you need to go down on stairs, and then on a valley. The Hotel is clean, the personnel is friendly, food is marvelous. We had one night of Bulgarian cuisine and one night of Italian cuisine. The swimming pool is medium sized,...
