Now Ive been to the Sun Dream a few times and I have to take umbrage at some of the comments in previous reviews, but I’ll get to that later.
Lets not pull any punches, the apartments are tired and are in desperate need of an overhaul and paint job. We had to play “share the fridge and kettle” for a couple of days, but as a family we had 3 rooms between us it wasn’t a big deal and Ali sorted it for us after day 2.
I do think people expect 5* accommodation for the 2* price they are paying - Please remember what you actually paid. For example we paid £80 for 2 weeks self catering, seriously you cannot grumble at that price!! (look on Travel Republic for example at how much the hotel actually gets)
What the apartments lack in, the staff MORE than make up for. I have never seen the staff looking miserable or smoking as they served anyone. ‘Babyface’ takes his job quite seriously and would never allow that. All the staff are on a commission, so if you aren’t eating or drinking in the hotel it really effects their pay (their basic is about 30 lire (£10) a day so need any commission they can make), but again having said that they have never ignored or been rude to me (or anyone I know) when I have eaten out of the restaurant.
Summing up, yes the Apartments are very tired looking and really do need an upgrade, they are supposed to be getting an overhaul this “closed season”. The Staff are flaming brilliant, ‘Wycliffe’ especially cant do enough for you. Would I go back – umm yup my partner and I are already booked in for jun!!!
