Constanta, Romania
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

I stayed at this hotel for 3 days at the beginning of May and everything was really great. The rooms were clean and spacious, really good food and beverages. The indoor pool was heated so we really enjoyed some time there. The entertainment staff was really friendly and doing their job. I would definitely come back here.

Great location at the great sea resort in Bulgaria! Very close to the best places at Golden Sand (beach, shops, casinos). I prefer to stay there while visiting the resort! Great environment! Excellent service! Very convenient rooms! One of the best hotels in the area!

We chose this hotel again and were very pleased with our decision. Hotel maintains its high standard and quality and still offers very good value for money. Rooms are spacious, even if 2 adults and 2 children stay in one room. Food is very good and offers many choices to everyone's taste. We will be coming back!
