Cons: Limited parking places (even payed ones). Limited number of lounges on the beach
9.5 Excellent
Pros: Nice hotel Big rooms - very comfortable mattresses
Cons: It seems that you have to wake up at 7 am to put your towel on the beach chair in order to get one - thats the way it works!
9.5 Excellent

Cons: Little things, but overall a very good stay!
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Great staff, entertainers and location.
Cons: No showers near private beach. The Main restaurant is not located perfectly. If you stay in astoria mare you have to take 2 elevators and cross all pool area. Not so easy when having children.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Excellent
Cons: A beach bar would be nice.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: For a all inclusive food was amazing and plenty of options The hotel was very clean The kids pool nice size and deep The staff very professional
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Location is perfect, near the beach and hotel have free sundbeds on beach. The room is big enough, it was quit during the nights. Food was very good, lot of varietes. I can go on and on, hotel and personel is great over all. Pictures from booking are real, hotel is new - 2018, all things from the hotel are new too.
Cons: I found nothing that wasn’t ok.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: Room clean and modern equipped. The extra bed for my child was prepared in advance.
Cons: Food selection was pretty much every day the same. A lot of people wake up at 6 o'clock and take the sunbeds for the whole day without really using them.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Big new hotel. Even the furniture smells new. Food is good, great variety and great pizza :) kudos for the pizza guy! The oooonly thing that was bad was the cheese at the buffet. Rooms are very large, pools are great! Also the view from the pool area. Oh and the balconies have a good size. Also the waiters are nice and agile and very polite, always with a smile on their faces.
Cons: - no beach bar - they should do something about people who leave their beach towels on beach chairs early in the morning only to actually come to the beach/pool after 3 more hours. It's not ok. - the ventilation in the bathroom didn't work properly in our room - quality of the drinks is rather bad... - parking isn't free and there are limited parking spaces
9.3 Excellent
Pros: Clean and spacious rooms. The variety of food was excellent. Kind staff.
Cons: Problem with the sun beads and umbrellas on the beach. There was not enough spase and available beds for all guests from the hotel. You have to seat on the sun and wait for someone to leave. Not organized at all! There was a situation when a person light a cigarete on the beach and a lady who was in charge, complained how she couldn't stand the smoke!!! Can you imagine? When you pay a lots of money for holiday you expect everything to work out. Why is than all inclusive? The entertainment was poor and a litle bit silly.
3.7 Mediocre
Pros: I liked the view of the sea. The hotel is situated less than 50m from the seaside.
Cons: Even tough they have Air Conditioning, the cooling system is no use at all. I left the Air Conditioning system on during all day, and in the evening the temperature was still hot (even tough it was cooler than before I started the air conditioning system)
3.0 Mediocre
Pros: Actualy,nothing.Everything is old,comunist,style.
Cons: The air conditioning works only like a fan,I did not stop it 2 days but the temerature inside my room was still higher after that 2 days.And after I park my car in the parking of the hotel,my car was missing the both side signal direction.
4.0 Okay
Pros: I liked a lot leaving the hotel each time I left for the seaside or the pool of another hotel coz this one has no pool.
Cons: Old comunist furnish and no air conditioned even if outside were 38 degrees Celsius !!!!!!
4.7 Okay
Pros: The grate thing about this hotel is that is really close to the beach
Cons: I did not like a lot of thinks: The air conditioner is actually a fan, it only blows hot air. The breakfast was terrible, the elevator is trying to kill you when you get in, the doors were closing really fast.
5.6 Okay
Pros: It was close to the beach; the breakfast was good
Cons: we paid by card and they request us some information about the card - and it wasn't normal; the air conditioned didn't work on heating; the parking is not for free and we paid for 24h - 12 leva

6.8 Good
Pros: breakfast location room
Cons: chaise lounge at the pool for an additional fee
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Location was great! Right on top of the beach.
Cons: The surrounding area has questionable security. I had both my wallet and phone stolen, and did not feel entirely safe after exiting the hotel.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Modern climate, clean, high
2.5 Mediocre
Pros: One big disrespect to our privacy wiped all the good things away.
Cons: Hotel personnel doesn't have any education. Housekeeping entered the door directly without warning during the most private time with my wife. This is the FIRST rule of managing a hotel. And this removed all my positive points about this hotel. You enter a room after knocking, shouting. Customers are not potato bags. Only minimum requirements to be a 5 star hotel are fulfilled. Don't expect anything more. Anyway if you are not a gambler to lose money at casino, you are not a valuable customer in here, go somewhere else.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Perfect location, beautiful spacious rooms with balconies, lots of different facilities such as swimming pools, bars, gym, amazing casino just right at the hotel!
Cons: Breakfast wasn't great, wouldn't pay for all inclusive deal in this hotel.
7.0 Good
Pros: Very good
Cons: Elevater waiting
8.0 Excellent
Pros: The staff are super friendly, the pool is very nice. It was clean and fresh. The restaurant on 17th floor was great. The food quality was very good and not that expensive. The breakfast was good but too busy. The omlette making stands could have done with extra person to help as had to queue. But the next day, we went to the next door restaurant which is also part of the deal, which many people did not know about which was great as we had breakfast there every day in peace and quite. Overall we had a great time.
Cons: The rooms were nice, sea view but the only problem was the noice coming from the outside. It isn't something the hotel can change as it is the music and party noice coming from the bars, especially the German bar which is opposite the hotel. That went on till early hours. Saying that, once you close the door the noice is limited. So overall, not too bad.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything. It wasn’t on thing which we didn’t like or we wasn’t pleased.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: It's clean, the pool is good and the view from the room. Also the food and the service at the Lucky Chef restaurant are superb.
Cons: 1. Extremely noisy with bad quality windows. Noise coming from the bar in front of the hotel until 3am. 2. There was some locked door between our room and the neighbors' room. You can hear all conversations in their room thanks to that door. Totally unacceptable for 5 star hotel. 3. The girl employee who gives towels for the pool is not polite at all.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: This is not a family hotel. Is perfect for couples or group of friends who just want to have fun. The rooms are big and nice with a nice balcony. Even the ones with a back view have a nice view. Beds are very comfortable. Beside the topical restaurant they also have a very nice fine dining with great services. The pool on the 3th level is perfect for a lazy afternoon with cocktails, good music (everyday was a Dj mixing) and food at your pool bed.
Cons: The cleaning everyday wasn’t as it finest but they made bed and changed towels accordingly.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything just perfect !
Cons: Nothing to complain !
Overview Reviews

Featured amenities include dry cleaning/laundry services, a 24-hour front desk, and multilingual staff. A roundtrip airport shuttle is provided for a surcharge (available on request), and self parking (subject to charges) is available onsite.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The food, the rooms, the beach. Everything was great! We had a wonderful holiday. Will definitely come back again next summer.
Cons: I’d say the only thing that wasn’t that great was the gala dinner. It was too crowded because half of the hotel’s guests had to come at the same time in the main restaurant. That’s all, really.
7.5 Good
Pros: Infinity pool,location
Cons: Almost the same food every day,low cost and local drinks
9.5 Excellent
Pros: Huge variety of foods during lunch and dinner, as well as very good drinks and snacks at the lobby & beach bars. Quiet place. Friendly staff. Clean rooms. Good wi-fi coverage.
Cons: - Breakfast menu was about the same each day. - The waiters were taking the plates from front of you, which is absolutely NOT polite. If there is a shortage of plates/silverware, simply buy more of those and WAIT for the guests to finish their meal and LEAVE the table before cleaning it. - went to their "medical center" near the beach one day to have my blood pressure measured and was greeted by someone who was rude and said that they offer support only for "beach problems", whatever that means... but definitely no way to do a simple blood pressure measurement.... in 2019.... in a 4-star beach hotel resort.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: Everything was perfect and we had a great time there!
Cons: Maybe the only thing was on the bars alcohol was cheap
10.0 Excellent
Pros: All is beautifull! They will do the best for you! Their mission is your holiday. I want to come back to Encanto again! I hope the beautifull and smart lady manager will e-mail me when they will have available rooms! Big kisses from me and my wife Laura!
Cons: All was perfect!
9.5 Excellent
Pros: All was very good and nice. Lunch and dinner were very good and diverse. The sea view from the main restaurant is insane. The infinity pool is very nice. Drinks are ok and the staff is very friendly and nice. All in all, I would recommend this for a few days of relaxation.
Cons: The only drawback were the desserts, which were not that good, but they compensate with very good diversity of fruits.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: every think was perfect .no problem at all i will recommend for nice holly day time .
Cons: the ask me money for the safe to us ,only this .
10.0 Excellent
Cons: Unfortunately the energy consumption of the hotel seems not to come from renewable sources. The neighbor hotel already had its rooftop full with solar panels, while our hotel doesn't seem to care so far.
9.3 Excellent
Pros: Good services!!!
8.8 Excellent
Pros: I liked the position of the hotel near the beach, the food was diversified, the rooms modernly arranged
Cons: You should improve the behavior and attitude towards customers of some of the receptionists. They are the image of the hotel and it is a shame to spoil it.

9.1 Excellent (759 reviews)
Overview Reviews
Offering direct access to the beach, this Golden Sands property is within 1 mi (2 km) of Nirvana Beach and Golden Sands Beach. Cabacum Beach and Aladzha Monastery are also within 3 mi (5 km).
10.0 Excellent
Pros: No kids around, great stuff, friendly!
Cons: Opening houses at the beach bar
9.5 Excellent
Cons: Parking spot was a little too far and not very comfortable to park there
8.3 Excellent
Pros: The view and the location were perfect!
Cons: The staff are away from experienced! But they were trying to their best always i can say!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The all inclusive was exceptional, wide range of food and drink/cocktails available at all hotel sites. Very accommodating, attentive and personable staff - I’m allergic to goose down so easily replaced with hypoallergenic pillows, vary meal choices to take out sauces (mustard or mushrooms) and even pizza with no tomato sauce. Can’t recommend it highly enough.
Cons: Meals were sometimes served and cleaned up at a different time to your eating partner.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: I like that the meals were ala carte not buffet Big compliment to chef, very tasty and well presented meals in all restaurant
Cons: As this hotel can organise quite a lot, next time I will request better weather
9.3 Excellent
Pros: Breakfast and location great
Cons: I didn't like that there was dress code (long pants) for men and we didn't know, so we couldn't go to dinner in the main restaurant. The drinks are quite low quality.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The warm professional staff is the biggest asset of this resort. Congrats to all people working there!
Cons: Morning coffee ☕️, but the one in the rooms was fine
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Bio swimming pool. Fusion Restaurant. Friendly Staff. Cocktails and the food.
Cons: Excellent Hotel nothing to fault
8.0 Excellent
Pros: We very much enjoyed the hotel for its facilities and service. The food was great and so was the wine (it was better than good!). They employ lots of staff from further east and they were superbly trained. We were very impressed with the whole package which included superb views from a rooftop bar.
Cons: The problems are first to get there, is a pain from Luton using Wizz air (not sure I would agree with the speed connotation) and secondly, when you get there it is surrounded by hotels on three sides and a tourist trinket shop in front. Thirdly, it gets very crowded and the beach is like one of those in Spain where there is almost no sand left free!
9.5 Excellent
Pros: Excelent cleaning and facillities
Cons: Too many foreigner boutiques between hotel and the private beach. One of the elevators it was fault during our stay and they didn’t fix it, so the access between room to lobby and viceversa waste to much time
Cabacum Plaza Aparthotel - Golden Sands - Building
5
9.1 Excellent (285 reviews)
Overview Reviews
With a stay at Cabacum Plaza ApartHotel in Varna, you'll be on the beach, within a 5-minute drive of Golden Sands Beach and Cabacum Beach. Featured amenities include dry cleaning/laundry services, luggage storage, and laundry facilities. A roundtrip airport shuttle is provided for a surcharge (available 24 hours), and free self parking is available onsite.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: The view was fantastic although we were in the back building (6th floor). It had everything you need in the kitchen. The staff were nice and uncomplicated.
Cons: The sofa bed was a bit short - I'm only 164 cm and my feet were still hanging out half the time. I didn't realise during the booking that we wouldn't be in the front building.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: It is quiet, clean and the views are great. Very close to the beach and if you want to get to the center of Golden Sands you've got a bus stop just 100m away. Would come back.
Cons: All of those are more or less minor things, what could be improved: The breakfast was okay, totally fine but for the price of the rooms and the classy look of the hotel, it does not live up to the standard. Some of the bulgarian products used like 'Lyutenitsa' are chosen to be cheap. As almost every other hotel in BG, the owners do not care to make the roads or sidewalks leading up to their properties match their quality. What you get is an oasis in a ghetto. I'm talking about the road right outside their yard. The swimming pool on their terrace is amazing. However, right under it there's an unmaintained part with overgrown plants. You can easily take a photo without them but it's a wrong move in my book not to fix those up, that would just be the extra mile.
9.3 Excellent
Pros: Comfortable, good, clean apartment, excellent view, very good wi-fi (mostly appreciated!
Cons: Beach access is not so great. They should have opened/ repaired the stairs from the pool to ensure access to the beach. There is a long & dirty & circulated alley to the beach which ruins the general “beachfront” impression. Water jn the pool was cold.
9.3 Excellent
Pros: The apartment was very clean. The owner is very friendly. They helped me to change my room.
Cons: I did not link there is no bar at the pool.
9.3 Excellent
Pros: Location on the waters edge. Big, well thought out apartments. Pool by the sea. There’s a ten percent discount for those who staying in the apartments at a very good restaurant right beside the apartments.
Cons: Breakfast was good but could be improved.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: It was very nice and clean and the staff was very helpful
9.5 Excellent
Pros: Location, near the sea and beach
Cons: Nothing not to like
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Great position. Quiet place. Great view.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The sea view
Cons: The bathroom
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything was excellent! Fantastic views from our balcony, you meet sunrise in the morning and enjoy moonlight at evening with a bottle of good vine and sounds from the see. Staff is very friendly and helpful, rooms and kitchen are big and equipped with everything you need. Cleaning is very good. Definitely will recommend for all my friends. A lot of cafes, shops and restaurants around, but better to rent a car, so you can enjoy more from Golden Sun area.
Cons: No complaints at all.
Grifid Hotel Foresta - Golden Sands - Building
6
9.1 Excellent (276 reviews)
9.3 Excellent
Pros: The staff is kind and helpfull, the chef cooks great and he is very nice to the guests, very clean in the room, every day the towels are changed and they fill the minibar with one pepsi/mirinda, one bottle of water and one beer. Close to Aquapolys(about 5min on foot). Bolero Aquapark is free and we had a very good time spent there. It is a 3* hotel but the facilities are almost as a 4* one. Private parking in front of the hotel.
Cons: Far away from the beach. Shuttle bus to the beach should be more often, maybe each half an hour/ each hour starting with 8 not with 9:30. More diverse menu.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Very kind staff, big bedroom and bathroom, very clean, great service, shuttle to beach, close walk to beach
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Great services, friendly staff, good food, spacious room. The transfer to the beach was as specified.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: The hotel AC was very good. Perhaps a little too cold in the restaurant sometimes, but mostly great. The free shuttle bus was great. It would be nicer with shorter intervals though. Also, the other Grifid hotels didn't know anything about this free shuttle bus to Grifid Foresta when asked about the pickup point. That could be improved. The evening entertainment was great. There was early breakfast for those having an early checkout. The Aquapolis is right next door (not included though).
Cons: Especially the restaurant staff did sometimes have some difficulty understanding English. They did for example not get the "sugarfree" when ordering soda and didn't understand "berry juice". The rooms also were not that sound proof. Some other guest's phone vibrated on their bedside table and we heard it loud and clear. It is quite a bummer that the pool closes at 18:00. The room AC was very loud. I tried to tell the staff that it was noisy but the technician didn't understand any English so it was very hard to get anything done.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: We felt amazingly good, the hotel is very clean, quiet, the team is realy profesional, you feel great in this hotel, note 10+, thank you to all the employees!
Cons: -
3.8 Mediocre
Pros: The rooms. The rooms looked good
Cons: The food was horrible. And they put food also from the other past days. When we arrived, they told us that due to a problem we 2 of us should share one apartment because they didn t have 2 separate rooms available as we requested
6.8 Good
Pros: Clean, nice staff, very far from the beach, bad hours for the shuttle Bus, nothing to do after 18:00 o’clock
Cons: Bad hours for the shutlle bus, so you could spend very little time at the beach
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The staff is great, the hotel is clean and quiet and the food great.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Very relaxing atmosphere at the hotel, good food, big room, quiet place, very professional staff
9.3 Excellent
Pros: The hotel is very clean and well kept. The staff was extemly friendly and helpful.
Cons: There are four Grifid hotels and I belief that each has its own privat beach. I think they could work better together so that if a guest goes to the beach and sees Grifid umbrellas (s)he can feel like home.

9.5 Excellent
Pros: Comfort Cleaness Service
Cons: The dress of some customer could be a little bit more elegant.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: great location, the food was awesome, with many varieties to choose from , excellent overall experience, the hotel looked exactly like the photos, they stacked the mini bar every 2 days with water, beer and sodas, the very good part was that there is a reserved beach for hotel clients, so you don'y have to pay for sun beds and umbrellas.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything is exelent! Staff is very kind, bad sheets is chandged on 2 days, there is a towels for the pool and beatch. Food is more than exelent. If some one uses sofa, must ask for extra mattres on recepcion and it will be in room for about 10 minutes.

Cons: Lunch not included in the package on arrival and departure.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: Very nice beach and pool, a la carte restaurants are very good, nice view from room

7.5 Good
Pros: Good food all day long, tasty drinks, sound proof windows, very nice sea view (only on high-floor levels)
Cons: Central AC not working and room got very hot, ventilation in the bathroom not working, no bar on the beach but the most terrible of all, parking at 20 Leva/day is robbery, you can call the police because everybody is complaining, they just don't care.
10.0 Excellent

Cons: None
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Great food. Clean and confortable rooms. Nice sea view. Nice and helpfull staff.
Cons: Little bit crowded but is to be expected in season.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: I enjoyed our vacation. The meal was good, the room was big and clean. We could stay at pool or at beach (they had private beach). I would point some minor things that can be improved.
Cons: 1) Parking is small. They can't make it bigger, of course. But there is an underground parking near the hotel. 2) Staff is oriented to french tourists. We had a situation when we we're waiting to get a juice for children and some older french guy came and got in front of us. We complained to bartender that we we're there first. Bartender just shuck her shoulders and proceeded to serve the french guy. Probably because our money didn't have a good value for them. 3) Minibar was free. They said they refresh every day. We drank the bottled water. Nobody cared about our minibar, I went to a supermarket to buy water for children.
3.0 Mediocre
Cons: It’s only like a guest house with no service at all Poor facilities and cold face staff at reception The only hotel I paid with no receipt and the receptionist said because I didn’t ask for it at the beginning

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Very nice hosts! Great beds, very clean and beautiful yard and pool! It was perfect for a romantic getaway.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Nice and cozy family hotel Nice outdoor area Very clean Very friendly and helpful staff
9.5 Excellent
Pros: The hotel is really kept clean. The gardens are lovely and relaxing with comfortable Sun lounges with cushions. Relaxed seating areas with shade and Sun. Very peaceful location. Small and family run hotel and they are very helpful and it is relaxed and informal. Airport transfer offered and was efficient and economical.
6.0 Good
Pros: Nice pool, friendly staff, clean rooms.
Cons: The smell from the sheets and towels were so strong. My mom nearly could not breath because of the chemicals used in the room. Half the night she had to sleep outside because she was barely able to breath. I also heard other people sneezing when we had to have the window open and she was sleeping (or sitting outside) half the night. So perhaps the maids could use something more organic and not deadly.
9.3 Excellent
Pros: Very helpful staff, clean and convenient
Cons: Noisy people/TVs in other rooms until late
9.5 Excellent
Pros: I liked the peace and quiet of the area. The staff was very friendly, always ready to help us with a smile on their faces. They truly made us feel welcome. A quiet beach was close by (5-10 minutes at most), although it's true that to reach it you have to walk down some stairs that, while not steep, were numerous. All in all, we loved it.
Cons: There was a bit of an issues with the shower, but nothing we couldn't solve with some creativity.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: Large room, very clean, excellent location, friendly staff
Cons: The bathroom faucets should be changed, they are old and rusty

Grifid Hotel Bolero & Aquapark - Golden Sands - Bedroom
9
8.9 Excellent (1,501 reviews)
Overview Reviews
With a stay at Grifid Hotel Bolero & AquaPark in Golden Sands, you'll be by the sea, just a 3-minute walk from Golden Sands Beach and within a 5-minute drive of Nirvana Beach. Featured amenities include dry cleaning/laundry services, a 24-hour front desk, and multilingual staff. A roundtrip airport shuttle is provided for a surcharge (available 24 hours), and self parking (subject to charges) is available onsite.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: Pools, meals, rooms, amenities, beach, etc
Cons: Parking boys-rude, careless
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Not quite Seychelles, but hey, still a perfect location for a family with small kids. All inclusive takes away the trouble of finding out restaurants or preparing the food yourselves. The pools are really large, Aqua Park is a whole lot of fun for kids and the service was great. Also, shows are staged for kids in the evenings. You can walk to the beach in 2 - 3 minutes.
Cons: It was still a bit annoying that the pool schedule was only 9 am to 6 pm. Many kids wake up at 4 or 5, so especially on a rainy day, relaxing/playing in the pool is super convenient, therefore the pools might well stay open until 9 pm, imho. If that would require more supervisors and cleaning the pool later during the night by the hotel staff, so be it, they should be able to manage. It would also be fair if the hotel staff spoke Romanian. Not an issue for me personally, but since more than 50% of the clients seemed to be Romanians, it would only seem logical that Romanian be added as one of the languages spoken by the staff, besides English, French and German.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: All !
Cons: The juice from food area.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Bolero is a nice and well-managed place for families who want to enjoy pools, but want to be close to a beach as well. For an AI place the variety & quality of food is very good and so is the service. Pools are clean with attentive lifeguards abundant sunbeds and umbrellas and the water slides are an extra perk (mind the height restriction of 140 (130) cm for the big slides). The animation is good and staff are friendly. You have to pay extra for parking (20leva=10Eur per day), but they always find a place for you. There are extra 3 a la carte restaurants on the premises (Asian, Bulgarian and Mexican/Brazilian), but if you fancy them book a table at least a couple of days in advance at the reception. The spa center offers massages that are a reasonably good value for money.
Cons: While there is an AI bar at the beach it offers no snacks during the day, if you/kids are hungry. The gym is spacious, but two out of four CV machines were out of order; more stretching mats could be added and the gym should ideally be open at least from 7.00am (8.00am currently). If you come later (after 10.30-11.00am) getting a pair of sunbeds & umbrella on the beach can be a challenge, mainly due to many unoccupied sunbeds 'reserved' by guests whole day.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Water slides are the biggest plus. Food is enough and tasty. Drinks are OK. I shall be back in few weeks to enjoy it again. It worths.
Cons: It's my 5th time in Bolero, but this time the Evening shows level has been decreased. Nothing after 10PM. I booked 5 rooms for 2 adults and a 9 years old each - bedding for the kids was not arranged for any of them.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: The staff, hotel, beach
Cons: -The pool as the water was not warmed (considering we have akid 2 years old) -The Mexican Restaurant did not impress us. -Not very large choices at the restaurant menu (like e.g. In Turkey’s hotels). But the food was fresh and was ok. -the fish was frozen despite the first day (Monday ) when we had Palamida and in another day Solmon

Grifid Hotel Vistamar - Ultra - Golden Sands - Building

8.9 Excellent (574 reviews)
Overview Reviews
Located in Golden Sands, this beachfront property is in a shopping district and within 1 mi (2 km) of Nirvana Beach and Golden Sands Beach. Cabacum Beach and Aladzha Monastery are also within 3 mi (5 km).
6.3 Good
Pros: Infinity pool is amazing! (available only to Concept rooms). Great modern and new room (Concept)! Great view! Very good a-la-carte restaurants.
Cons: Pretty bad value! The price we paid is more than 5 star hotels in Turkey, Dominican Republic, and Mexico but you don't get what you pay for: 1. Cleaning staff completely ignores "do not disturb" sign. They walked into the room around 5 times in both days, few times with my wife and myself being naked (not acceptable!). The button to lock on the inside does NOT work. 2. Unlike a-la-carte restaurants the Main restaurant food quality is poor. Selection is great but most of the dishes just don't taste good. Poor selection of wine and beer. We've been in a 70 dollar hotel the night before and the food was better there (compared to $250 here). The dinner is only 1.5 hours and even then some of the dishes are not available for the whole time period. The staff starts cleaning around 15 minutes prior to closing. 3. The beach/pool towel exchange is open for 1 hour in the morning and evening. What if it gets wet or want to return them later??? At checkout instead of calling somebody to check our room for towels, the staff made me go back to the room myself and bring the towels to reception (as the towel exchange is almost never open). Just plain bad service in this case 4. The alcohol selection is quite slim. There are only 2-3 variants of each type of alcohol. Cocktails selection and quality are below average.

Pros: Everything else was awesome !
Cons: AC in the room wasn't cooling it enough.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Pro: - newly renovated(1 month ago-ish) - great design (the biggest pro) - good varied food - excellent location, right on the beach - nice beach - cool rooms in the summer(junior suite) - great view from the balcony(upper floors) - nice animation team (shout out to Niky X2, Lora, Selma - nice outdoor pool(water tested daily) - towel service (no beach towels needed from home) - beach bar - the coffee “shop” - you are able to visit and enjoy free drinks and stuff at other grifid hotels(which are right next to vistamar) - great sea view from the restaurant And a bunch more that don’t come to mind right now We appologize for leaving a piece of furniture moved next to the bed(so the baby wouldn’t fall out), but i pulled a muscle a day before we left so we couldn’t move it back.
Cons: Cons: - some of the staff(bartenders especially) didn’t seem very happy to be there or serve - tip boxes everywhere. I encourage tipping, but it just makes you feel uncomfortable - cold water in the inside pool. We had a couple of days of bad weather and wanted to enjoy the inside pool. The water was really cold and the manager, who was informed, didn’t do anything for the next day either! - the mini club needs to be renovated, as the hotel was! It looks old and has a very bad smell(the girls were nice enough to leave the door and window open so it wouldn’t smell as bad - the club should also be renovated(oldish) and adevrtised more(there were always ten-ish people in there) - the drinks. 99% bulgarian. - the icecream was less than ordinary - nothing to eat after 9 p.m. (maybe there was something left in the restaurant, we didn’t know, nobody told us. There should be snacks outside because the terrace is full of people enjoying drinks - i saw the massage girls on the beach(don’t know if associated to the hotel). They had no idea what a massage is supposed to be - the infinity pool on top, we were told, is only for people in “the concept rooms”. It should be “adult only”, like the concept rooms are. Or at least have paid access so we can enjoy it as well. Doesn’t seem fair to come with a kid, leave it at the mini club and not be able to anjoy the pool. Just sayin - we specifically called the hotel twice to ask if they would be done renovating when we got there so there would be no noise as we were with a baby. They said yes, but there was power drilling and furniture moving on the floor above every day - some staff didn’t speak english or just very few basic words - paid parking and safe. I can understand the parking to some extent. But the safe? - no extra bed in the room, just couches and some of them don’t extend - after some guests left(neighbours) they changed the comfortable couch on the balcony in the js for chairs..
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The pool on the roof is amazing.
Cons: Food is just ok.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: Position of the hotel. Rooms are spacious and modern designed.
Cons: We didn’t received room with pool view, as we paid. They offer us the possibility to move to such room next day, but we decided to stay in the room received. Ventilation in toilet and bathroom didn’t worked. We have made a complain about this, but they told us that is centralized system, but if really worked, it was not enough efficient. All in all, we liked to stay in this hotel, and will definitely come back and recommend to everyone.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: Food range: lots of different options especially for us vegetarians. There is a small section where there was soya/almond milk for breakfast, that was nice. Though I only found it after 3 days. Drinks: Drinks are Bulgarian but we had no problems with it and didn't think they were bad as some of the comments from other guests. As first timers we wanted to experience what Bulgaria has to offer. Food was everywhere. We have two small fussy toddlers so was very nice that the had chips/pizza/pasta every day served both during lunch/dinner at the restaurant as well as near the pool. They also had a nice bakery-type-concept and lovely desserts for us sweet tooth lovers. Location: was favorable close to the beach, though there is a little buzz from the shops nearby but was not as bad. Beach: Free beds and drinks available at the beach. Á la carte restaurants: We tried all three, the Italian was the best. Though the desserts were much better at the main restaurant. Staff: They were also nice to arrange a cot for us. SPA: Can recommend the massage at the spa i the hotel as opposed to the beach. Was also the same price.
Cons: Information: We would have like some material that explained all the services. Like where to get the beach towels (which by the way have certain opening hours). Different food options and their opening hours. We felt so lost with a lot of things, in fact a lot of things we found out a couple of days after. They explained so little at the reception, in fact they didn't inform about the á la carte restaurants, I had to ask about it. Beach: Wasn't cool that people still smoked in the non-smoking section of the beach. I had to cleanup all the cigarette buds from the sand so my little one wouldn't eat them. Also, there were some people who take the beds in the morning only to show up at noon to use them. Don't think that's fair. Also noticed some people use the beds who didn't belong to the hotel. Indoor pool: it could have been more warmer and cleaner too. Compared to the rest of the hotel, felt this lack love. Room: We had the park view room which was actually the view of the "parking". We were at ground floor so cars were right next to our balcony.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: The hotel has 2 relative new buildings and 1 very new building with big and clean rooms. The lateral sea view rooms are nice. The beach is close to the hotel. The food is good. The kids amusement is great and also every day entertainment is great.
Cons: Staff needs to improve their attitude and speak nice to clients (part of the old staff - the barmans from the holway and from the beach, not the juniors who were very nice and kind). The beach staff is awfull.

Cons: For a beach hotel, is a too bad that only half of the rooms have balcony, the ones with the sea view. I recommend for other travelers to book this kind of room, because is necessary to dry your swimming clothes, towels, etc. Juices were not the best and only few, no fresh juice.

Reception Certain shifts at the reception could have been more friendly to newcomers and guests as the first impression of the hotel is being shaped after interaction with reception representatives; 2. Gym It could have been more developed and equipped with an upgraded equipment. Most of the units were either broken or not designated for a proper work out such as treadmills and arms extension. 3. Canteen Food was always delicious, however titles (names) of the dishes could be rarely found next to them. It would be great to stick all the names next to the dishes.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: The hotel is 3 minutes from the beach. The space of the room is large and also the balcony, the kitchen is well equipped. The only thing in the room I didn't like is that the pull-out couch is uncomfortable and it's important to ask for another mattress.
Cons: We took a deal with breakfast, the meal is nice but not varied enough. The same principle every day doesn't have too many changes
10.0 Excellent

8.3 Excellent
Pros: Wonderful entertaining team Great variety of the menu
Cons: Little soap for a family of four members. We had to ask for more soap and toilet paper. Dirty bathroom and no soap next to the restaurant. Hotel parking area had to be paid this year, whereas last year it was free of charge.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Perfect
4.5 Okay
Pros: The dinner from one of the days. But when you have all inclusive for some days, one meal to ne ok is not ok at all.
Cons: I’ll try to only give some examples. The staff attitude, the fact that i sent them a message with request for an invoice and they did not bother to open (and ogf course i stayed some extra time to re do the invoice so on), the parking part (also a message that they did not even read). Ling story short, horror time and one of the worst experience.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Pool is big and room is as well.
Cons: Poor parking area information. I had to pay for the parking penalty. That's all!
7.0 Good
Pros: Good location, nice staff and pool.
Cons: The wifi did not work! The room was not clean.
6.3 Good
Pros: The choice of food is fantastic and the taste is also very good, the choice of beverages also enough and also good. Temperature in the dining area is fine too. Rooms are very clean and really comfortable. The bar outside for drinks is nice and friendly service. In general its a nice place to spend a holiday
Cons: The only problem with this hotel they are not prepared at all for so many people, restaurant is too small and they don't have enough places to sit, also not enough waiters to serve you or clean tables. The swimming pool is far to small for so many people, they don't have enough bed or chairs, you simply need to put a towel at 6 in the morning otherwise no place. Parking is a drama simply no parking places, you need to park else where against 2 Leva (1 euro ) per hour, very expensive. The receptionist Who we met Olga very fancy like a movie start, but very rude.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Spacious rooms and well furbished. The restaurant a bit crowded but in all places for everyone. Good and varied food choices for the all-inclusive service and decent drinks (but nothing special on that, we've had better hotel bars). The pool is quite big witch is quite a plus to other hotel options, tough some more beach chairs would be needed. In all, quite ok.
Cons: Parking is an issue, there are too few parking spaces and trying to get some from the neighbouring hotels was not possibile so try to plan this ahead. We've managed to get a parking space some 10 minutes walk from the hotel

Pros: The food is good even if there are not so many choices. The personal is very friendly. The parking is really included. The location even if is about 10 minutes walk to the beach is in a forest which makes it very private and relaxing. It has a pool and ping pong table and a foosball table.
Cons: The pool was opened until 6 pm. The stairs that you have to climb to the hotel. The distance to the beach, the hotel is on a hill so the way back is a little hard.

9.3 Excellent
Pros: Food was super:)
9.5 Excellent
Pros: Exceeded the expectation for a 3* hotel. Staff very kind, good food for their level.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: Great place with decent food, pleasant evening music and surrounded by trees. Tip: If you like a more quiet place on the beach when you reach the road, down the stairs, go to you right and in 500 m there is an opening to your left (just before the closest hotel) and you will find some more stairs that will take you to a quiet place on the beach where you can lay your blanket or rent a sunbed. If in doubt just follow the people.
Cons: The breakfast was the same every day.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Very quiet place, very polite and helpful staff. The beach is 10-15 minutes away and there is quite a few stairs getting to it. The good news is that the stairs are in a wooded area, so it's not so hot when you go to and back from the beach.
Cons: The meals, other than the breakfast, were not good at all. The food was tasteless, old items were re-served sprinkled with a bunch of parsley and dill to cover up the smell of old food.
