“Very good hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2014

I like very much the hotel. The hotel is good, is close to the beach. Also the food is good and enough.
Also we had a party in the hotel with Gala Dinner and it was all perfect. They organize very good these party.

Planning a low budget vacation (500e - 2 adults + 1 child), we didn't have great expectations, especially that we did a last minute switch with 100e more from a only breakfast included hotel to this all-inclusive hotel.


Before choosing it, I've read the reviews and I had some doubts on the hotel because of the score on Booking and Tripadvisor, but finally it seems the switch was a success, compared to the first option.

What we like:
- Amiable and polite staff
- Rooms were cleaned daily
- Good and diversified food at the restaurant
- Nice pools and pool bar

What we didn't like, confirmed by previous reviews, but we had to make a compromise:
- Parking: no available places at hotel parking, 10leva/day at private parking 200m away. This seems to be a general problem in Golden Sands, as many hotels have the same issue. Also, there is a tow truck which really patrols the streets.
- All-inclusive bars start at 11:00AM. Yes, this was frustrating for whom want a juice (beer) in the morning before swimming in the pool.
- Noise: Indeed there are discos around and drunk young people making a lot of noise. But, for a quiet hotel I recommend the ones from the outskirts of the city.
- Dirty water in the pools: the water was cleaned weekly, the water filtering system (if existing) was clearly not efficient.
- Cold water in indoor pool. Almost nobody was using it because the water was warmer outside…
- Insufficient sunbeds, sometimes you need a "towel reservation" from 8AM, especially on the children's pool
- No free wifi in rooms, the internet available on the lobby was bad (many disconnects and slow because of many users...)


Overall, we weren't disappointed, but there are many things which might be improved.

Room Tip: higher floors may be quiter

I've been in this hotel with my family (a child of 4 years old) at the beginning of August 2012, for 9 nights.
The personal was pleasant, and they also accepted to change our room just because we wanted something else. From the beginning I have chosen a sea view room (very clean room, with daily maintenance), and the floor was 4 or 5. with the sea view room there was not a lot of noise only from the swimming pool. During the night it was quite silent.
all inclusive system was same as everywhere in BG, local soft or alcohol drinks, and plenty of food. even if it was not exactly my taste, It was ok I could chose from different of assortments for my child, including fresh vegetables and fruits.
The beach is of a walk of 5-7 min away. Hotel is in the middle of the city.
Nice swimming pool (3 in fact, and the water pass from one to another), with two small slides. One swimming pool for children on the shadow.
It’s not im my nature to go back to the same places, but if I would, I’ll go again there.

If you can sleep on the street or in your car - please do so, but do not sleep in this hotel.
There are four basic issues which cannot be fixed:
1. NOISE - you simply cannot sleep till 5 am in the morning because of the noise coming from nearby disco, and drunks on the street. Imagine yourself sleeping in the chair in the middle of a dancing floor in the disco. When the music stops, the drunlen patrons continue their "conversations" accross the floor. You fell asleep from exhaustion at about 5-6 am just to be awaken from a noise next door (your neighbors just came back).
2. SERVICE - non-existent. People are extremely nice, but nothing works: airconditioning, faucets, internet, etc. You name it - it does not work, and with a smile you are told that nothing can be done. This hotel should have been demolished many years ago.
3. ELEVATORS. You cannot fit even a suitcase if there are more than two people in the metalic case they called "elevator". Oh - yes, there are staris.
4. HYGIENE. Dangerous for any civilized person. Will not go into more details.
5. FOOD in the restaurant. Non-eadable.

Room Tip: Do not choose a good room, avoid this hotel.

Avoid this hotel!!!

First of all, if you care about what and how you are eating you should stay away from this hotel because in the restaurants and lobby bar are hygiene problems, tableware and glasses are generally filthy!!!

Mimosa is a very cheap hotel, poorly finished and I don’t understand how it was classified at 4*!? It is located far away from the beach, at about 1 km., in the commercial area of the resort, so you’ll “enjoy” noise and bustle of the street and of others restaurants and pubs till late night. If you want to reach the beach, on the shortest way, you should go downstairs in addition about 50 stairs.

If you are in vacation with small kids you won’t have to many options concerning the food in the hotel restaurant because the don’t have dishes proper for the kids in general, they serve up too many dishes with sauce, minced meat, fried not grilled, the food is to salty and the soups are some kind of dark brown undefined salty juices. I have to say that the butter is some kind of white margarine.

They have also problems with food diversity serving up the same sort of dishes almost everyday and the desserts even they look good are only sweet without some distinct flavor.

A big mistake is to make a reservation to the Italian restaurant named Gusto. Over there you can have a pizza similar to those frozen, with a lot of salty yellow cheese added, a very very salty lasagna with savory not oregano (!) and Caprese salad with cream cheese instead of mozzarella. A genuine Italian restaurant!!!

Concerning the accommodation, first apartment was really nice, large with a huge terrace, but we were forced to change it because the bathtub got broken in the third day. Actually the tub was improperly installed and got broken. In the second apartment, roughly the same problem with the improper fitting of the bathtub; this one was draining the water outside the tub. They wanted us to pay the damage in the first apartment but after a heated argument they gave up.

They know very well about their problems with hygiene and others and they do nothing!
At the end the rest doesn’t matter, be careful and stay away from this hotel, it’s one of the worst!!!

Room Tip: the apartments are quite nice

Just arrived from hotel Mimosa in Golden Sands (me and my 3 years old daughter). I spent a holiday full of problems. It started with a broken air conditioning. I complained about it since the first day. The serviceman came after my 6th (!) complaint!!! But he did not repair it. The receptionist refused to change us the room. Finally we spent 5 days without the air-conditioning before it was repared. It was impossible to sleep with an open window, because the hotel is placed just opposite a noisy open air disco! All that trable continued one afternoon when me and my daughter started to vomit and finally spent 2 days in a hospital. I saw many people in the hotel having the same problem at the same time. It was probably a food poisoning or a virus infection. Some days before we leave the hotel someone broke in our hotel room, forcibly opened our suitcase and stole all our money. I spent 5 hours on a police department for write a protocol and in addition I had to pay to the police a fee.
Otherwise quite nice hotel. In my opinion it correspond to a 3 star standard. Rooms newly equipped. Clean, but my friends had the bathroom full of ants every morning :-(. Swimming pool nice, but old dated, so broken on many places and quite dirty. Food was good, but not excellent. Choice big enough, but very repetitive. Good soft drinks. Dirty dishes in the hotel restaurant. Staf very unpleasant except the cleaning ladies and animators. Hotel is convenient for the families with children. I loved the beach and the sea BUT the beach was completely overloaded by the paid areas and the free area was in front or behind the paid sunbeds. So if you didn´t want to pay for the sunbed and umbrella (quite expensive), you had to put your towel almost in the water or very far away from the water. Golden Sands is a noisy place. Perfect for young people who wish to spend all the nights in the bars and discos. Avoid if you wish to sleep the night.

We've been in this Hotel last year. We've spend almost 20 days. My advice : run !

Of the staff is quite friendly after spending couple of days but regarding the facilities : the food is awful, the rooms are not clean...
After a few days, we've decided to have our meals outside the hotel. The "buffet" is noisy and it's like the gold rush when a warm meal is taken from the kitchen...

If you want to spend cheap holidays in an expesive hotel with drunking people from 09am to 12pm : go there !

In general, avoid this part of Bulgaria, it's only a tourist trap.
We get some problems with bouncers in night-club, taxi drivers, waiters in restaurant, money exchanging... Everybody wants to steal you on way or another...

The bulagian country seems to be more traditionnal with natural people...
