We had booked and paid in full for this all inclusive hoiday before reading the reviews.
Once Id started reading I had 10weeks of worrying and feeling sick about it until we got there...which there was no need for as it was lovely!
The room was lovely, and clean. Could of done with upgrading the shower, but overall no complaints.
The food wasnt perfect, but its Bulgaria and they eat different stuff to what Im used to, just never realised I was quite so picky...but I found stuff to eat everyday and never went hungry.
There was always clean plates, glasses and cutlery, and as for the 'dirty tablecloths', what do you expect with so many people coming in and out? I did see tablecloths being changed during mealtimes, but they cannot be expected to do it after every single person has used it.
Not sure whether I would go all inclusive again, as we did eat out a few nights, but we made up for it with the amount of juice and eer we drank...but the cost of eating out every night isnt as cheap as expected, it soon adds up, so there are pros and cons of going all incl.
Staff were all lovely, although the reception staff did seem a bit rude at times when they just carried on their conversations with each other etc. even though we were standing waiting to speak to them, but they were friendly.
In fact Im very happy with the friendliness of the staff, and the cleaners were great, even folded my pyjamas up and put them under my pillow for me!!
We didnt pay for a safety box key, but our stuff was fine, even when I hadnt padlocked it into my case.
The only complaint we would really have would be the lift. We were on the 7th floor and the lift would break down daily, more then once.
There was 2 other lifts to use though, but when there was no working lift there is about 18steps between each floor, so not great for people with difficulties, but we didnt find it too bad.
Also with the pool, we never found any sunbeds as people were saving them with their towels the night before, but thats not the hotels fault. We bought a cheap lilo each and just used them as our beds, was fine by us, and plenty other people did the same! The pool was also lovely and always plenty of people in it.
There is also free wifi if you ask reception for password.
I had worried so much about this hotel, was feeling sick with it! But it was all for nothing, your holiday is what you make of it.
If you want to spend your holiday complaining then you will fnd stuff to complain about!
We enjoyed it, and would go back, just maybe not all inclusive but would depend on price difference, we could be persuaded :-)
