Rooms were basic but clean, sheets and towels changed five days out of six. The fridge in the rooms is a good idea but of course it only works when you are actually in your room. Only one English language TV channel...True 2, ok if you want rubbish films, Little House on the Prairie or The Waltons!
Breakfast was disgusting, we lived on jam on toast (having to push the toast through the toaster with a fork as it was broken) and fruit. We were so glad we were not all inclusive (see photo!)! Someone was being seriously ill one evening as we passed their room!
The staff were mainly friendly.
As for Golden Sands as a resort, we liked it but if you are expecting egg and chips and everything geared up for the English then it's not for you. There is a lovely quiet beach right at the south end of the resort which you would never find unless you knew it was there...walk south from the bus stops, taking the left fork and look for two green garden sheds. Take the path in front of the sheds and this will lead to the beach, there is also a bar there that serves the best Shopka Salad or omelette we had all week.
The restaurants we found that were good are The Gibraltar right on the cross over point of the two Noddy Trains and The Asgard about 5 minutes walk uphill from the Pliska. Both good value for money.
We would return to Golden Sands but can see why it's not for everyone who's used to Spain.
