Reading all other reviews, and staying at the hotel myself, this is my opinion: - hotel is very, very good for young and midlife couples and families but if you prefer to have a more quiet environment, it's better not to travel in high season such as July and August. Golden sands is a touristic place with interesting budget friendly... More

Let's get things started : 1. Firstly, we waited 3 hours for our room and the guys at the reception were something like: "Wait 5 more minutes" and they told us this so many times 😢. 2. The food is awful!!!!!! The only thing we could eat was the rice with vegetables (B.T.W. this was a great rice). 3. The... More

Nice hotel with a short walk to their private beach. Rooms were not new but clean no matter. There's only one pool with a bar next to it. Two diners and one bar in the lobby. The poolside activities were wonderful and the entertainment team would go to the beach in the morning and gather the kids and play. The... More

Modern hotel, located on the beachfront, although it's own beach strip was a little further (5-10 minutes walk). Internet speed (wired in the room, free WiFi in the lobby) was decent. The room was very spacious and clean, view to the sea (although from the side) was beautiful. Food was good and quite diverse (we had ultra all inclusive). A... More

Great hotel and location. We arrive really early in the morning, We were allowed access to the poll and the room was allocated around noon. Very spacious room, big enough to accommodate 2 adults and 2 kids without being crowded. Good food, good drinks. Top self available but only if you asked for it (like Jim Bean whiskey).

The hotel has great potential, very nice location on the main beach line, but it is not renewed. It seems that the management didn't take care too much. The service is awful: the coffee zone, the reception and restaurant. If the owners and managers take care this will be place number one in Varna.
