Great hotel, the staff are absolutely brilliant except the guy Scuzek (I think) who calls himself as Food and Beverage manager but is probably the most rude supervisor I have ever seen. The other staff are absolutely great especially Ulas, Svitlena, Romeo and the rest of the entertainment team who work so hard to ensure guests have absolutely great holidays. Pool side activities and games including slides are great too, a bit more water in one of the slides would have been better though.
The hotel is in a great location with excellent sun beds, private beach and best of all excellent kids activities so parents can relax too. Kids disco and adults disco are an excellent way to end the night unless you want to sit in the late bar or have late/ early morning coffee. 4 different bars with free pouring drinks make all inclusive worth it.
Buffet is huge with great variety of salads and desserts which hardly change throughout the week hence you feel tired of the same food after 3 or 4days. Not enough varieties in hot food though but soups taste great. You have to be there at 7 pm in the queue to taste the lovely huge chocolate cake as it is gone by 720 pm only to be replaced by gelatine based dull desserts. Some local cuisinie on a few nights would be so much better. Live bread from one of the station is worth waiting in the queue. Breakfast buffet is brilliant with excellent variety all the way through.
Rooms are probably 30 years old with TVs straight from antique shops. If you book a villa ensure it is one on 2nd or 3 rd floor at least, anything lower than that will only give you a view of trees.
I think the food is maximum 3 stars but the staff, facilities and location makes it 5 stars so overall 4 stars would be a fair score.
