Just to enjoy the last sun of this year I decided to book the Gladiola Star hotel in all in formula. And I didn't regret at all. Let me first write that Gladiola Hotel and gladiola star hotel are in the same huge complex, gladiola star in the middle and gladiola at left and right of the gladiola star hotel. There is one swimming pool for the whole complex, so I guess when it's full house it's a bit too small...but when I stayed here there were only 20 guests. And the beach is just a few meters away. All clubs and bars are within 100 meters, but were all closed so no loud nights at all. Rooms at gladiola star were nice and cleaned daily. All inclusive was great. Certainly to know that there were only 20 guests there were daily buffets. Variety was ok and good taste. In my opinion staff was always helpful and friendly. The last 3 nights only 3 rooms were occupied and the management decided to switch of the aircon system. This was a pity but understandable. Nights cooled down so it was not too bad. Over all... nice price quality.

The worst hotel ever! Everything is old and dirty, the tv almost doesn’t work, it was an adventure riding the elevators which got stuck everyday with people in them, the food was average..not bad but not good either. The staff was annoyed by anything and everything and couldn’t care less about the customer demands, it was very noisy and don’t expect a sea view below the 6th floor. It’s close to the beach and the shopping area and that’s about it. Not related to the hotel review..the people are very rude in general (at the beach, at the stores..) and not at all welcoming and nice.

The hotel itself is lovely, very very large but only caters for the germans Romanian and polish, no english food at all, breakfast was very poor unless you like hotdogs for breakfast and spaghetti bolognese!!! I went A/I with my mother, wish we hadn't of bothered as we ate out nearly every day and night.. if we ate in the hotel we only had the fruit and they did have nice cakes but that's about it, the pool area is at the front of the hotel which is very small and crowded with young aged people, this hotel is not for you if you want peace and quiet!! We had to move rooms on the 2nd night due to afew groups of lads playing loud music until 3am and not following the hotels policies, we complained and they sorted us out right away which was very good of them. I would not go back due to this reason and the food also.

Overall the hotel was okay. I had a good time. But I wanna mark some really not enjoyable things. Firstly, girls and boys in diner were so so rude. I barely could put my knife and fork down and they already run towards me to pick them up. Once she even took my half brewed cocoa. It would be so sooo much more enjoyable if they would have waited untill I finish. Secony, I needed a bandage but everyone were so bitter and didn’t help me at all. There were 24h open doctor service in this hotel but there was a sign on a door: Open 8.00-12.30 - doesn’t seem like 24 hours. And finally, i wanted to be with my friends by the pool but life guard was so angry and stopped us an told us to go away if we tried to move the chairs although we weren’t disturbing anyone and other teenagers were blocking the roads and etc. So wouldn’t really recommend if you want a experience.

room cramped, dated drab wallpaper, no water in bath or shower. antique air con couldnt get below 28c despite being on all day.. deafening noise from night club opposite hotel.. food adequate if you like luke warm chopped up frankfurters.. lobby & outside bar staff useless, loud drunken Germans everywhere, shouting & screaming till early hours.. no security.. 2 x small pools surrounded by back to back sun loungers.. lifts dirty & smelly... in all disappointing & wont be going anywhere near there again..
