I love this new, modern and very clean hotel. We had a great vacation there previous week with my family. The staff is super kind and smiling, especially Galin from the pool bar, the guy from the beach game Darts where my husband won a prize… also my daughters love the girls from the mini disco and we all enjoyed the different programs and games! The staff in the main restaurant were also so polite, it was a pleasure for us to visit it every time. The food was so delicious and varied … and I cannot think of any negative thing to say about this place. For sure we will come again next summer!

Great services and very friendly staff (from reception, to restaurants, bars and housekeeping). We enjoyed and mainly also due to the location (great beach spot within Golden Sands and quiet place). The all inclusive drinks are local (besides Aperol Spritz) from Savoy bottles, but still average quality and ok. Good ice cream, quality hotdogs (even Heintz mustard) and a variaty of food in the meals at restaurant (all inclusive).

I will start my review with the pro and con feedback: Pro: + Location of the hotel close to the beach and also in the quiet area of Golden Sands + Room Size - superb + View from the room - sea view - room 323 - Nice view. + Personnel kindness and support - Above my expectation because most of the travelers has complained this topic. + Cleanliness of the hotel - nothing to comment. + Manager from the Restaurant - very supportive. + Deserts very tasty. Negative Side - - Food Quality - I really don't understand how everybody are saying into the reviews that the food is fabulous. The quality of food is average - 7/10 like in our student period at the cafeteria. Plenty of food, mostly the same every day, very salty, no baby friendly food since this is a family resort. This point I will say was the most inconvenient which we have to handle it because in 3 days of stay our toddlers didn't eat anything and we have stomach pain after each meal. (we are not the type each are making the plate full like other guests), we really have a healthy diet in our personal life which was disturbed by the average quality of food. - - - Capacity of the hotel during pandemic - at this point I am referring that the hotel was booked at full capacity which is not really "healthy" for the person which are in holiday. Normally should work at 60/70% capacity due to COVID 19. a. Crowd at the restaurant were you receive one pair of gloves and one mask. This preventive actions are not enough during pandemic situation - the food should be served by the restaurant personnel not to be taken by each guest as a Swedish buffet - NOT Hygienic even with a mask and a pair of gloves . b. Crowd at the elevators - You need to wait several minutes to catch a free elevator, in our case even we were at 3rd floor we cannot use the stairs because of our twins trolley. - - - Sun Beds from the Sentido Marea Hotel - There is like in the jungle, even if the house rule is to not put the towel on the sun bet to make it yours, most of the people are wake at 05:30 to illegally book their sun beds on the beach. This a very big inconvenient because if you go at 07:30-08:00 you will not find any more a sun bed available because all of them are booked and nobody from the hotel stuff is doing nothing to prevent this phenomen. - - Poor Mini Bar - 1x pepsi , 1x mirinda, 2x local beers (very poor quality), 2x water bottles. - Below the expectation for ULTRA ALL INCLUSIVE PACKAGE. - - Drinks from the restaurant, lobby bar, pool bar, beach bar - very low quality - Below the expectation for ULTRA ALL INCLUSIVE PACKAGE. Overall the price / quality report it doesn't fit. The price is to high in comparison with the provided services. We left after 3 days of stay even our journey was booked for 7 days with no additional charges.

We booked the concept room and our room was at the 8th floor with amazing sea view. The room had 2 beds and 1 couch big enough for 1 adult person, but our kid slept there. Daily cleaning and restocking of mini bar (2 bottles of water, 2 beers, 2 juice and was included in the room price). Coffee machine with 4 capsules daily restocked included. We had 2 massages included in the room price, but only I had one with hot stones. Also, 2 a la carte dinners were included, one in a Bulgarian restaurant and one at a beach restaurant. Concept rooms have a dedicated beach front, which is less crowded than the normal one. Also, from time to time, the beach bar boys come and ask if you want something from the bar, so you don't even have to make the effort to go get something to drink. We had the ultra all inclusive, so all meals, snacks and drinks were free. The restaurant has a nice selection of everything. Maybe not so many as before covid, but enough. All tables were disinfected after each person. You cannot go and serve yourself. You need to wait in line and wait to be served. Everyone wears a mask. The staff is very nice and helpful. It might seem that they are grumpy, but the restaurant is really noisy and with the masks they just cannot hear you very well. Just point at what you want :) and they will smile. The kids pool was very nice and my son was extremely happy. The hotel also has an indoor pool and an outdoor one. The spa is at the Encantado hotel next door. The parking place is 20 leva a day if you want to park in front of the hotel or 10 leva a day if you want to go a nearby parking. We parked in front of the hotel, and as it was crowded, we left the car key at the reception so they can move the car if they needed.
