7.9 Good
Pros: Nice Skyfall swimming rooftop area. But the swimming pool was closed in September. So it's only worth to go in summer. Big casino
Cons: It's not a 5 star hotel. More like 4 star. Anyway, clean hotel, big casino. Disaapointed with the food. Breakfast always same and boring. Even the dinner wasn't great. If you are vegan, you would be starving over there. No options for vegetarians(I am not vegan). Too much cheese everywhere. The restaurant on the 17th floor serving very small portions. The servant wasn't helpful too. The gym is ridiculously small... So can't give it 5 star for so so food and some of the facilities. Only once received complimentary water to my room during my 4 nights stay . Ps: you have to pay extra to get juice or other refreshments during your dinner or breakfast.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Lovely hotel, great location, food on the executive floor outstanding and well worth the money, we had a lovely stay
Cons: Because of the end of season a lot around the hotel was closed although this is not the hotels fault but not a lot to do outside the hotel
8.3 Excellent
Pros: It is a lux hotel, near the Golden Sands, with good atmosphere and facilities. The staff was serious and responsive. The variety of food was exceptional, and they keep serving hot meal even to the last serving minutes.
Cons: The beach is separated from the hotel so there is no privacy or comfort in that. It is always very loud and noisy, so even in the night you cannot have a decent rest, so if your goal is something other than partying 24 hours, maybe you should reconsider.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Buffet was great and the staff was very nice and helpful.
Cons: The spa area. And we got 2 single beds instead of one queen bed.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: There was no breakfast included. This was a nice location very quiet but very near to a supermarket and a 25 minute walk to the main resort of Golden Sands and if you want it more quiet there is another beach nearby so it is good to have a choice.
Cons: The roads are in need of desperate repair so have to walk in the roads if you go out at night take a torch.
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.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Lovely staff, very clean rooms with AC, TV, and balcony, daily housekeeping, outdoor pool and lounge with small bar (great prices, Lavazza coffee with milk 2 lv.), hotel is a few minutes away from Kabakum beach, but we really recommend the 15 minute walk to the center of Golden Sands (water is a lot nicer). Plenty of super affordable restaurants around (Casa Ole, Flirt, and the Chinese food restaurant around the corner were our favorites), as well as multiple supermarkets. We definitely recommend Hotel Angy for anybody traveling on a budget, the value you get for the money is amazing.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Our room was cleaned every day.

Pros: Went to different hotels and this one is stil Number One!
8.3 Excellent
Pros: - great location - enormous room with kitchenette - very clean - comfortable bed - excellent breakfast, so many options - free parking - nice side view of the sea, spatious balcony
Cons: - there were ants in our room, at the 9th floor - the water in the pool was extremely cold - the noise coming from Hotel Prestige next door is beyond my understanding. The music is way too loud, I dont even know how the people can hear each other at the pool or how can they sleep at night
10.0 Excellent
Pros: First of all, this hotel has a reception staff that I couldn't find even at 4 stars hotels. The receptionist Ivan, recognised me when I got there last time as a former guest for several times, so he asked the permission of the Front Desk Mg Daniel to upgrade my room without me even asking for it ! They both remembered my name ! Isn't that a requirement more for 4 and 5 stars accommodations ( cruise ships )..? Besize that every time I had a even a small request they did everything they could to satisfy me. At this hotel the details are the one that make the difference : the balcony is totally individually and not on the same line with the other balconies (1m between), and that really allow you to relax without seeing/touching !!/ hearing your neighbour. I've been accomm. at a 4 star hotel next to this one, where you could easily shake your hand with your neighbour on top of a 1m! glass wall . The size of the balcony also is twice bigger than others hotels. The room size !! is also twice bigger ! on the higher wing of the building- you can't hear any noice from neighbours... The breakfast- far better from others ! I served it at an egiptian style 3 stars hotel with lift - impressive hotel not far from this one- and the salami was good for cats and the diversity of foods was twice poor... The location - a lot of 3 and 4 stars hotels have in description " sea view"...but they are on top of the hills and you can see the sea only if you have a high floor room, between the trees. Here only few rooms don't have a front sea view, but they've compensated with the size- there are some apartments there , big, with 2 toilets..... and you don't have to climb any hill just few steps to reach the hotel.. The beach is really 5 mintes walking...and the area there makes you feel " you are in the middle of the action "...
Cons: Some of the rooms don't have a great view/sea view, but they are compensated with another advantages ( 2 rooms, biger size, kitchen), at the same price so it's up to you to decide what you need most ..
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Stayed in a one bedroom apartment, very comfy with lots of space to spare. Location is good, 2 minutes walk to the beach, also free parking was a nice thing to have. Lots of facilities (2 swimming pools, rooftop bar, kids playground, a la carte restaurant, bar etc), don't really understand why this is not a 3 star hotel, as opposed to the actual classification of 2.
Cons: Really slow elevators. From the restaurant's buffet the wine and desserts were horrible.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Breakfasts best in Resort.
Cons: Upgraded to a bigger room with sea view but got a view of the garden and kiddies park.
6.7 Good
Cons: Check Out Process. Tried to re charge my friend for his stay at check out process, even though he had paid on arrival.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything, room perfect, food superb, service and staff and all facilities all 1st class.
Cons: Nothing , used this hotel numerous times before, Always 1st class in every respect.

9.2 Excellent
Pros: The scenery is fantastic. You can't imagine how close the hotel is to the beach. it is amazing. There is so much love in it. We loved it! E.g. the trees, the stone seated bar on the beach, the trees surrounding the hotel and the sound of the sea. And last but not least every room has seaview!
Cons: Nothing despite the huge concrete la her apartment buildings surrounding them.
7.5 Good
Pros: The view
9.2 Excellent
Pros: I loved the sound of the shore, very relaxing. The view is magnificent, especially in the morning. Breakfast was simple but lovely. Staff was friendly and helpful.
Cons: The stairs to the main road, especially at night time. Didn't like them at all.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Great place to be if you want to hear nothing but the waves. friendly family atmosphere, you'll feel like home by the sea. All rooms have sea view. You go down few steps and you end up on the beach. You go up again and you find a cold draft beer. The owners are great, multilingual and always there to assist. Restaurant with good food, bit limited in options but I trust any restaurant where the owners eat what is in the menu together with you. Everything was fresh, well cooked and you can get prossecco by the glass ! I saw comments about the stairs. That's right, the access is down some stairs (come on guys... we did it with luggage and 2 children of 2Y and big deal) but if you have any walking disability give it a second thought. In a wheel chair is a complete NO.
Cons: Not a posh place. No caviar, big mess with high heels, no disco nearby. We did not need it but maybe you do ! You have to climb some stairs to get to your room, hard to do if you get wasted by too much rakya (similar to grappa) and Bulgarian wine. And with a bottle of good wine at 15E (that was the expensive one !) it is very hard to keep sober.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The location very close to the sea, quiet and friendly atmosphere of the hosts. Fresh and good food at the restaurant. In the price paid there was also a sunbed and umbrella
Cons: There were stones in the water that made you uncomfortable, if they were removed they would be excellent. There was no sign or advertisement to find the hotel.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: - location and staff - nice restaurant in Hotel, good breakfasts - close to different beaches
Cons: - noisy sea - stairs from street
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The hospitality and service was excellent - very friendly and helpful managers. The location being right on the beach was very special and so was the uninterrupted view of the sea! Perfect place to watch the sun rise...or so I'm told! The patio areas are lovely - full of plants and greenery with plenty of trees to provide shade if needed as well as free sun loungers to use on the beach. The stone and wooden balconies in traditional Bulgarian style is what makes this place much more pleasing on the eye than other (more expensive) neighbouring resorts and's the simplicity of Morski Briag that is the best thing about it and the very reasonable room rates. Oh...and my kids really enjoyed the chips and the ice cream!
Cons: The breakfast was good - the only disappointment being that the jam wasn't local Bulgarian and the coffee was instant. (psst...and the wallpaper needs to go. Sorry... but someone has to say it ;)
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The view and the beach were breathtaking. I felt like i was in Greece. The room was super cute.
Cons: Everything was okay.

9.2 Excellent
Pros: Anton was truly an amazing person, so helpfull. and the place was so beautiful .The food was delicious. We Will Come back. <3
8.8 Excellent
Pros: This is a villa, not a hotel. You can reach the beach by foot but you have a little to walk. There is a shortcut but is really not for everyone, especially small kids. The food is good, is prepared for you on the spot. The room we stayed was not very big but enough to enjoy our stay, the bathroom was a little small but it has everything you need. The host is very friendly
Cons: it was a little too far from the beach as we imagined.
8.8 Excellent

Nympha Hotel - Golden Sands - Building
8.7 Excellent (607 reviews)
Overview Reviews
Situated in Golden Sands, this beach property is within 3 mi (5 km) of Golden Sands Beach, Cabacum Beach, and Nirvana Beach. Aladzha Monastery and Sunny Day Beach are also within 3 mi (5 km).
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Location is great, right at the seaside with private beach (sunbeds and umbrella included in the room price). Rooms are very modern and painted with very great taste. Restaurant is big enough and food is very good. Big plus for the option of prepairing your own alcoholic drinks during meals. There was a lovely young girl (I missed the name) at the reception that I thinks is the nicest/kindest receptionist I have ever seen in 12 years of summer vacations in Bulgaria. All in all, we will come back again and highly recommend when price is fair ( around 100 euro/room with all inclusive).
Cons: Dissapointed by coffee. Very poor quality (soluble coffee) during meals, which is not acceptable for such a high rank hotel. Better coffee (espresso), but not great is served at the all inclusive bar upstairs, but only after 10.00 am... I did not like the fact that for reaching the close by Golden Sands city centre, we had to make e forced 1 km detour in the opposite direction or walk directly in the sand for 50 meters (that is really unpleasant wearing an evening outfit). Also, unfortunately there were of lot of algae in the sea right in front of the hotel beach. Parking should be included in the price and is not.
3.8 Mediocre
Pros: Fairly varied
Cons: Pancakes and other warm pastries very sparingly No choice to eat outside.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Very nice, clean rooms. Hotel is located right on the beach. Good variety of food options. Polite staff at the bar on the second floor.
Cons: Staff was not very attentive. Very often the food in the restaurant was finishing and it was passing a long time before they fill it up again. The girls on the reception were discussing things about the guests very loudly and impolitely.
6.7 Good
Pros: The weather was nice, staff was kind
Cons: The sea was very dirty.. Hotel needs restoration, including more staff.
6.3 Good
Pros: The location.
Cons: Poor quality and options for food. Same food was served at lunch and leftovers for dinner. Fruits were served dirty, not washed.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Very courtesy stuff. They were on top of everyting. Quiet place, very comfortable rooms, plenty of food. The seaview rooms - gorgeous.
Cons: Liquor bar.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: The room is comfortable and the balcony with sea view is amazing.
Cons: The fact that they don’t give you options for sun beds after 4pm when the beach in front of the hotel is under a shadow. The receptionist told us to use the free beach and we were not allowed to use the sun beds of the other hotels of Riviera club. The food was quite tasty, but the same every day The coffee at the breakfast was horrible and one needed to wait until 10 am for a coffee at the snack bar.

7.9 Good
Pros: Customer service was very good, the view was very nice, the pool is great and the beach is very close.
Cons: The only thing that borhered us was the fact that the wifi didn't work in out appartament. It only worked at the pool. They brought us a router, but the problem wasn't solved.
7.1 Good
Pros: We payd for the internet wlan but it dosent work in room nr 9
Cons: No internet signal in the roo anf we had to pay for it
4.2 Okay
Pros: Location and probabbly the exterior of the building
Cons: All charges need to be presented to the client . It's a very unplesant surprise when you need to pay for parking 8lv and 7lv Wi-Fi in additional to the normal charge which is not cheap at all considering the price for those services in the rest of the country.
7.5 Good
Pros: The apartment with the big terrace and roof access. Super nice ! Very comfortable beds and it was also very quiet.
Cons: The 2 bedroom apartment was very nice and clean (except for the shower which had a dirty floor) but the location is disappointing. There is only one way to the beach through a street full of garbage...there are a couple of decent restaurants but no other activities available(clubs, water sports). The beach was dirty but at least there were some toilets available. I don't think we will come back as this place is more suitable for elders and not for young people.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful view Spacious apartment Distance from the beach Stunning stuff
Cons: The slight smell of cigarettes smoked probably inside by previous guests Distance from Golden Sands centre No pool bar
5.0 Okay

9.6 Excellent
Pros: Nice view, right on the beach, kid's playground, restaurants near by.
Cons: The access to the sea is not so comfortable as the sandy beach does not go on under watter but it is replaced by bigger stones.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The room was very big. We stay in a studio for 2 adults and 2 children, a bad for two (king size) and two extendable armchair. Quiet private beach access with free sunbeds and umbrella. Very clean room, each day the maid come and clean the room, once at 3 days the towels and bed sheets were changed. Parking space in the yard of the hotel ( 6 spaces). You have a store across the street, we recommend this near restaurant to eat - La Mer (fence neighbors), Danton Restaurant (600 m), RESTAURANT BM SEA DRAGON (700 m). Very good food, cozy locations, near the sea., you can pay with card.
Cons: Unfortunately the sea access is with rocks/stones, for those who don”t know how to swim and just want to stay in water it”s difficult. The breakfast its seems to be a cheapest one. The products were very cheap (bacon, croissants, cheese, coffee, etc. - very poor quality/cheap). The sunbeds are made from plastic and don”t have mattress, its a little bit uncomfortable.
7.9 Good
Pros: The sea view was amaizing, the stuff very nice and friendly, the breakfast good
Cons: The many stairs to the beach
7.1 Good
Pros: We liked the staff. We arrived early in that day than we supposed, so the room was not ready. The lady from the reception took as and showed us the entire hotel with all the facilities. Later on, we told them that we will miss the breakfast, because of our early leave so they prepared for us a breakfast to take away! The beach is small and perfect if you want something more private. 20% discount to a Chinese restaurant across the street. The lady encharge with the cleaning was all day long carefully to be everything in a good condition.
Cons: The Economy room is very small and is in a different building than the main hotel.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The room was wonderful, exactly like in the pictures (which we did not expect) and it was big enough to accommodate 3 people and still have room to walk around. The furniture is new and matched the room really well. The hotel is very close to the beach, and our room was literally 10 meters from the beach :) We had a nice terrace and a seaside view. Breakfast was diverse, we stayed here for 3 days and the food was different every day.
Cons: The bathroom could use some shelves to put the toiletries on. The wild vegetation in front of the terrace needs a trim, as it blocks some of the view from the sea. There's a fruit tree on terrace and the fruit are falling on it and look bad.
7.5 Good
Pros: Excellent helpful and friendly staff. The lady on reception was very welcoming even though we had arrived before the official check-in time. She explained that one of our rooms wasn't quite ready and helped us to relax for the few minutes we had to wait. The suite room was spacious with a good bathroom. The location is outside the main areas of Golden Sands which meant it was quiet.
Cons: The bed in the suite was uncomfortable - especially the pillows, which were lumpy - and it creaked all the time, making for disturbed sleep. The ceiling in the bathroom of the suite had a small leak from the swimming pool above, which apparently also affected the neighbouring suite. The breakfast was reasonable quality, and plenty of it, without giving the impression of any particular quality. There are only 6 parking spaces at the hotel, and you will most probably get blocked in the majority of them.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Small and quiet hotel with really good sea front location and lovely rooms - tastefully furnished, good size with large comfortable bed. Good air con Small but adequate swimming pool with views out to sea. Friendly, helpful staff Self service Buffet breakfast in dining room or small terrace with fine sea views. There is a small private car park or adequate street parking.
Cons: -
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything was great. Nice and spacious rooms, good food on breakfast, very kindly staff
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The staff are very friendly and very knowledgeable. The hotel is very quiet and we liked that. The breakfast was good. The location has a lot of shops nearby if you want to grab a drink or eat something , but there is quite a bit of a walk to the Golden sands center if you don't have a car rented. The beach is secluded and very quiet, with not a lot of people. The economy room has a huge bed, and the toilet has good warm water. The pool wasn't bad although we didn't swim there a lot. We really liked the stay, for the price we paid it exceeded our expectations.
Cons: The beach has a lot of kelp in it, and a lot of rocks in the water, and in the sand. There was no shower at the beach to wash off the sand.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Nice big rooms, tastefully furnished and with air con/ fridge. Friendly, professional staff. Nice infinity style swimming pool, Steps down to small but decent clean beach. Adequate breakfast served in dining room or nice terrace with views out to sea. Good value
Cons: I booked a sea view room with balcony and assumed it would be 1st/2nd floor. I was allocated a room on ground floor by the pool which had a small terrace and although there was a sea view it wasn’t as good as from higher floors. Also it wasn’t possible to sleep with balcony door open as ground floor.

Pros: good quality for this price.very quaiet
Cons: 10 minutes walk to the beach
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Didn't realise from other reviews that there would be a fridge/freezer and communal kitchen and dining area for guests to use, as well as a lovely outdoor 'bar' area with wooden tables and sunshades. We had the large room with a balcony, which was really spacious and had chairs, table and a drying rack. The area is very quiet and away from the big hotels at Golden Sands, which is what we wanted. Easy access by bus (currently 3 leva) to Varna city. Small supermarket at the bottom of the forest track to the villa. Nasco was very helpful and drove ahead of me to point me in the right direction when I left.
Cons: There are other, (semi-) permanent residents in the house who sometimes had the radio on late evening and/or talked outside enough to be heard above ear plugs, but then I am a very sensitive person. Yet another bathroom which is a wetroom and the toilet area gets wet as soon as one person has had a shower. I had to wait over an hour for the water to be hot enough for a shower on my day of departure. Because of roadworks, both in Varna and locally, getting from A to B, including the airport, was very difficult, even with satnav.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Nice stay at a cute place. Coffee and tea available in the downstairs kitchen. No other food available though.
Cons: Bathroom was a wet room rather than a normal shower. We were in flip flops the whole time so we just wore them into the bathroom. Villa is at the top of a hill, so be prepared to walk up and down a few times to get to the action. Took about 15 minites to get to the beach.

Pros: The owner (Nasco) is the perfect host! Warm, friendly & generous!

Pros: Everything couldn’t find any faults with it
Cons: Nothing
7.9 Good
Pros: Comfortable beds, good shower in bathroom, large clean pool, secluded location with woodland surround, quite at night, good selection of drinks (expect only one beer), dinner food had good variety and some items quite tastey. Overall very nice stay and good value for money.
Cons: Staff were a bit abrupt/not very friendly, room facing pool got extremely hot when at sunrise (September) and curtains did not block out light which made it difficult to sleep. Some drainage smell from bathroom which we believe is common in the resort. Location was a nice distance to centre, however, the hill to the hotel becomes difficult even for able walkers.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Very tasty
Cons: Not adapted for non-smokers
9.2 Excellent

The room was very clean, they clean and give the facilities before 10 Am. If you have any problem, they check and answer immediately. The parking place was good enough. The pool is clean and has clean and enough sun beds, umbrellas and towels.
Cons: Only the location and the way until the beach. About 10-15 minutes by walking.It has the stairs and for coming back, going up makes it difficult.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: The hotel had been upgraded. The food was delicious and plentiful. The staff were friendly and very helpful. The pool was clean and in excellent condition.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Large room, very comfortable beds and pillows, clean bed linen and towels. All meals were very good, the food is not very diverse, but it is well cooked and delicious. Parking place in front of the hotel, with enough places. Although the hotel is in the older part of Golden Sands and not so close to the beach (about 10 minutes walk) it is in a quiet area. All in all a relaxing holiday.
Cons: The first 4* hotel where we ran out of toilet paper. Completely unacceptable. All that he cleaning lady could say the next day when we told her was: "no problem". The bathrooms need to be renovated as they are quite old. We did not use the spa area as it looked unclean and not really prepared for clients. I think the spa does not directly belong to the hotel, but to some other company though.
7.1 Good
Pros: Good pancakes Beautiful room
Cons: Very cold pool. Staff wasn’t friendly at all and we had a problem at the casino( they gave us broken 20€ bill) and we didn’t see until the next day, when we went to tell them they said and I quote “yesterday was yesterday today is another day I can’t accept your money back”. Also, we played the bill at one machine that accepted it and we won it back. One of the ladies there came and opened the machine to give us the broken money back. In the end we solved the problem by asking to show us the video of the day before when they gave the broken bill to us. The drinks were poor. The bar closed at 10:00 pm The food was not good. Very bad coffee.
7.5 Good
Pros: clean room, clean bathroom enough good food, although not of immense diversity, at least one bar always open. good service nice pool location is nice. not too close to clubs, so chill place.
Cons: horrible music: all time edm music everywhere, non stop. not enough sound proofing for the room drinks of medium quality horrible gym: nothing actually works. the only usable things are the weights expensive casino

5.8 Okay
Pros: Was a nice hotel
Cons: Staff where rude.
6.3 Good
Cons: Terrible Breakfast . paid-parking outside the hotel ( problem in a Rainy day like we had )
8.3 Excellent
Pros: - the private beach is nice with everything you need; also the shuttle was always on time and not too crowded - the pool area and the hotel yard are nice and very clean - even though not everything is tasty, you can always find something good to eat at the restaurant (big variety) - the fruits are very good and fresh - the lobby bar - good value for money - rooms are nice and clean
Cons: - the drinks (soda, juice, coffee, etc) are of very poor quality, dilluted with water - the sweets and cakes are horrible, the only eatable desert are the pancakes at the breakfast - the tables at the restaurant are not cleaned after somebody leaves, we had to clean it ourselves almost every time
6.3 Good
Pros: The location, 10-15 minutes walking to the beach, the surroundings (the hotel is in an area with trees), the aqua park (nice for the kids).
Cons: The overall impression is that all facilities are poorly cleaned. Especially the room was in quite a bad condition: the bathroom facilities and mostly the shower area had many areas where there was rust, mould and limescale. Traveling with a child suffering from astma, I wasn’t very happy about it. The surfaces in the room (nightstands and also the sides of the sofa) were covered with dust. The bed sheets and the towels, although they seemed changed, had a certain smell, you wouldn’t expect from fresh linen. Although I called the reception and they eventually sent (the next day) somebody from the cleaning staff, nothing changed (they came, they took a look at what we were complaining about and they left). Another thing that we didn’t like about the room was the extra “bed”, which was actually an extensible armchair that didn’t feel, nor look comfortable to sleep in. If you took the bed linen away you could see it was pretty worn, the kind of furniture you wouldn’t expect to find in a 4 stars hotel. There is food and beverages available all day long, especially if you have an all inclusive option, but it’s more about quantity than quality. Many dishes (such as french fries, nuggets, fish fingers and others) were pre-cooked, frozen food and the drinks were mostly served from dispensers. During the day, the drinks and food were served in disposable and cups, which you also wouldn’t expect in a 4 stars hotel. Overall, this hotel seems like it needs some upgrading and refurbishment. I would rate it as a 3 stars, at best.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: This hotel exceeded our expectations, price per value is excellent! What is worth mentioning is the quality of the food, obviously not cheap (like other Bulgarian hotels) and not reused. Hotel room is not huge but is large enough, so is the bathroom, they clean everyday. Restaurant and pools also clean. Hotel is very close to the private beach, decent walking distance, there is also a regular shuttle. Hotel has its own parking, you have to pay for it but we did find a spot although visited in full season. Staff is very polite and professional. They even sent me via courier, at a decent price, some items I forgot in the room when checking out ....I definitely recommend this hotel for a short summer vacation, ours was..effortless :)
Cons: Don't expect much when it comes to the beer, tastes the same as in every other all inclusive from Bulgaria I have visited. Good part is they have a shop inside the hotel with a fridge full of options :)
5.8 Okay
Cons: The hotel was full of smokers - there are no no smoking areas. The bedrooms were cared for everyday ie beds were made and the towels were changed. But NO cleaning. No no smoking balconies.

Pros: It was clean
Cons: The coffee and the meals were the poorest I’ve ever met for all inclusive. The beverages was too cheap.
