“I loved this place”
Reviewed 10 July 2014 via mobile

Rooms are basic but clean, there was a maid service daily, the staff are pleasant and friendly.
The 'animation' entertainment team were very hard working and got you involved in lots of different activities, water polo, water gym,darts and table tennis to mention a few, the evening entertainment was also good.
The food is your usual all inclusive European menu, catering for all tastes with a good variety, again the restaurant staff were friendly and helpful.
The beach is a 20 min walk or the hotel provide a minibus service.
All in all, I really enjoyed the whole holiday, met some great people and made some good memories.
I would definitely recommend this hotel and I will be going back again.

We have just returned from the Golden Odyssey, the hotel presented itself to us as a lovely clean hotel, we could not fault our room, it was large with 3 single beds and balcony also with fridge, a nice size bathroom with a bath and shower although not a hairdryer as stated in brochure but reception did loan us one at no cost.
A lovely pool area which was cleaned every day but not enough sunbeds... if you went to the pool after 8.30am there would not be a bed left usual thing.... towels left on beds... or beds hidden on balconies... sometimes with no intention of using them.
There was not an entertainment team for the first couple of days then a new team started I have to say they were very good.
Unfortunately the problems arrive when it comes to All Inclusive you could only drink soft drinks or beer and wine from 11am till 5pm which changed to 6pm when they opened the pool bar, after that you could have spirits up to 11pm with a strange system of 3 people behind the bar but only 1 serving drinks other than beer, so there was a constant long queue and you was only allowed to get 2 drinks or you got told off even though we had a table of 10 people. Customers were constantly told off for not clearing their tables of glasses.. we heard several customers being shouted at and told to go away if they disagreed with the barmen...strangely in some cases people got served at the table and didn't have to queue.
The restaurant left a lot to be desired... there would be no fresh fruit for breakfast and most of the week no lettuce for salad at lunch but you could get plenty of cake...I would say the food was not up to 4 star standard and I think many people agreed with us... The dinners were labelled for the first 2 days then they disappeared so it was guess work as to what you were eating. We found the restaurant manager to be rude and for some reason he kept reserving a table even when there was nowhere else to sit.
Everything taken into consideration we had a brilliant holiday but this was due to the people we met and the entertainment team NOT THE HOTEL.... FAWLTY TOWERS rings a bell..

Came here for two weeks, no good. It has no baby changing or disabled toilets. They messed the rooms up was meant to have 3 rooms only got two. There is no free wifi, air conditioning and no hairdryers which is advertised. Bar staff always looking for an argument with the customers. You don't have the facilities to have a drink on the hour between half nine and 11. This is not a good holiday! Doesn't live up to the all inclusive name! Not at all. Do not book!!!

we are currently on holiday at the golden odyssey hotel. The hotel is great and Rosa in the bar is fantastic also George in the bar in the evening is brilliant. Akiss the restaurant manager will do anything for you. The animation team on the other hand rip you off. Last night the lead of the animation team sold us raffle tickets 10 euro for six tickets which is nine pound. He sold at least 16 lots of tickets but the prizes were absolutely rubbish. We gave ours back and someone who won twice gave both theirs back disgusted. We asked him about it and he said the money was used to buy the prizes. Steer clear of this man as he just wants your money for nothing. Hotel is great

Having read the reviews prior to leaving for this hotel, myself and my fiance were slightly sceptical. After arriving in the hotel Golden Odyssey we could not have been more impressed with the cleanliness and standard of the hotel. The reception staff were extremely helpful and friendly and gave us a warm welcome. The room we stayed in had a spacious balcony overlooking the mountains in the surrounding area. The room also had air conditioning which was greatly appreciated in the scorching temperatures. We could not fault the pool area and there was never any trouble with getting a sun lounger or getting under a canopy when the sun got too hot to sit in. The gardens were also well maintained and extremely pretty. The only downsides to this hotel In our opinion is its location. It's at least a 25 minute walk from the beach and you can feel quite isolated at times. Kolymbia itself is extremely quiet with very few shops, restaurants and bars. On the plus side the hotel provides a free bus to the beach which leaves and picks up every few hours from outside the hotel. After experiencing holidays in many all Inclusive hotels I don't think it matches up in standards. The only alcohol you can have between 11 am and 5pm is lager, so if you don't like lager you're pretty much limited to soft drinks until after 5pm. Breakfast finishes at 9.30 am so from this time to 11, the bar is not open for any drinks whether soft or alcohol. This can become a problem when it's boiling hot and they won't give you a cold drink until the clock strikes 11 ( and not a minute before as I found out first hand from the one member of staff who shouted at me when I said it was only 1 minute to 11 and we were dying of thirst) The hotel provides no snack bar like other all inclusive hotels I have stayed in. If you miss any meal times you have to wait until the next to have anything to eat. The food was catered for the many Russian guests that they had staying there, but there was always something you could manage to eat. Would not recommend for any fussy eaters. Must be willing to try new things. All the staff were extremely helpful except for the one female bar tender as mentioned above who didn't seem to be happy at any time of day. The manager of the bar however could not do enough for the guests. He would memorise your drink if you were out on the terrace and bring you more once your glass was empty. All in all we had a nice relaxing holiday which we wanted and for the price we paid we can not grumble.
