Pros: -The bed was very very comfortable -the food was very good and there were plenty of different options every day; -some of the staff was nice and helpful. -There is a relatively short walking distance to the beach. -there are shops nearby
Cons: -very small parking lot; it was quite difficult to find a spot -cleaning of the room is done superficial; the mattress cover was very dirty and full of hair from previous guests; dust near the furniture -had to ask 3 times and insist to get the cover changed... -one plug near the tv; with nowadays technology more plugs would be welcomed -our room was facing the parking lot and another hotel with very loud music and programs until late at night; didn't bothered us so much, but I imagine it wouldn't be so nice putting the kids to sleep when the noise is loud even with closed windows -the seats around the pool are not enough for the guests and some times it's hard to find a spot; some of the chairs are broken -the animation program is not really animated; some of the staff (with a great motto: born to party forced to work!) was mostly sleepy in the morning -there is some bug problem; we were bitten allover in the room but couldn't find the source

Pros: Clean and good food
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Food was not great but ok. If you are not pretentious, you will not leave the table hungry. The room was clean an pretty big and staff was friendly.
Cons: Parking was poor, only few good places and some on the "green" space in front of the hotel. If you move the car is very hard to find another spot.

Pros: The location is near the beach. You could just go out, have a small walk and you are on the beach. As my stay was in November I can't say anything more about that. It was clean (especially the bathroom). The apartment was cleaned and everything was in place - you feel like you are at home. Silent, nice place for this time of the year.
Cons: Did not like the quality of internet - e.g. signal strength, coverage, speed. Lack of any useful signs how you could go to your apartment. I small map for new people would be nice - e.g. map of complex, facilities that can be used. I struggled about 10 min., to find a way how to get in the entrance. I did not like that the underneath parking had water leaks (I believe these can be fixed).
5.0 Okay
Pros: Apartment was very clean, the furniture are just perfect. Location of the building is just perfect, it only lacked supermarket. Although there’s a very small grocery store just opposite the entrance. If you are to enjoy this place during winter you need a ride.
Cons: I didn’t see any washing machine, building like this place is suppose to have a washing machine. The internet too is very poor, best to arrange your own connection when coming. Apart from that, the place is a very nice residence.

4.6 Okay
Pros: It is really close to the sea.
Cons: There is two building called Riviera Hotel and there are many differences, although they say there are no differences. Hotel nr. 2 is far not 5*, the stuff, the look of the lobby, the restaurant, the food, the cleaningness, everything is less! Why are they not mentioning that if you are not lucky, you will get for the price of a 5* hotel stay, an apparently the same, but worth only 3* hotel stay?! This is not fair!
6.0 Good
Pros: The location of the hotel is great, all rooms are big and with sea view. The property is very big and quiet. The beach and the pools are clean and great. The reception staff was nice and helpful. If they do something to change the rest of the staff we will surely come back here(mainly the cleaning staff)
Cons: The room was dirty: we found a pair of dirty socks under the bedroom bed, the bathroom wasn`t properly clean before our arrival(the WC closet was very dirty), the bedroom door had a broken hinge, the minibar was dirty and the list goes on After the first night we saw the cleaning lady next to our room and handed her the garbage, presuming that she was about to come in, but we were wrong.. There was absolutely NO cleaning service during our 4 nights stay: not even toilet paper refill or garbage disposal. We were with 2 other friends that were occupying a separate room and they even posted the card on their door with no luck. The staff(except the reception staff and another guy who was serving drinks at the restaurant) was extremely rude and unwelcoming.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Very pleasant location and surroundings. Two large pools and sandy beach on the edge of the Black Sea. Plenty of sun bathing beds around the pools and on the beach. Clean towels provided. Reception staff always friendly and helpful.
Cons: There was no evening entertainment, but this was end of season.

2.0 Mediocre

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
8.3 Excellent

6.7 Good
Pros: only this woman
Cons: wc ind aria
6.7 Good
Pros: Friendly staff and clean rooms
Cons: The hotel is not located in Golden Sands but outside the resort. We were misled by the description as it says 2,4km from city center. However it is not at all! You need your own transportation to Golden Sands or you can use the bus which passes every 15min. The ride to the resort is about 15min per direction. Breakfast is nothing impressive, croissants were super hard and impossible to eat. In general, the disappointment from the location ruined our vacation.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Good view on the sea from balcony. Clean room, friendly staff. Good breakfast and the hotel has a free parking.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything was just perfect.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Great rooms and beds!
Cons: The only remark is that if you pay for sea view you want to sea the sea not the trees in front of the hotel even they are beautiful..
5.0 Okay
Pros: Good food
Cons: No air conditioning functioning in the room
7.5 Good
Pros: Staff have wtitten my requirement for calm and quit room and we exactly this.
Cons: The pool needs repair. Tiles are old and broken.
6.7 Good
Pros: The staff and services are quite good. The room was always clean and the food was varied.
Cons: The holiday with a small child I would never spend there one more time. The music and concerts that take place in the evenings(20:30-22:30) are at extremely loud level, even for an adult. Also every night there were fireworks that were scaring the child. There is no place where to walk with child.
9.6 Excellent

Cons: Everything was fine.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything was great,the food very good and diverse,the room,the pool. Hotel is close to the beach and center of the resort. The hotel also has paid parking with guard and barier
6.7 Good
Pros: Nice, big, clean rooms. Good food, a lot of varieties, for any tastes. Drinks, acceptable, cocktails were nice, very good coffee at bars, not so nice at coffee machines.
Cons: All amenities, except pools and gym, have additional costs which are basically equivalent to any SPA costs. Being all inclusive and full of kids, I would expect that for adults the amenities would be free (sauna, steam room). Every morning at 7.30 before the pool opens there were few man waiting to occupy 4-6 chairs each, so by 8.30-9 AM there is no place left, although there is almost nobody at the pool. Employees don't really speak English, parking is very small and although you pay a lot per day, in case you find an empty space upon arrival, they still try to move your car in a parking that belongs to a nearby hotel. Air conditioning, although appears to be working has no impact on room temperature. TV, has incredible poor signal( but I noticed that everywhere I have been in Bulgaria).

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.

Pros: Our room was cleaned every day.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Staff facilities
Cons: Was a litle bit far away by the golden sand beach by foot around 25 min but it's a good value for August when is full
9.6 Excellent
Pros: I liked the peace and quiet of the area. The staff was very friendly, always ready to help us with a smile on their faces. They truly made us feel welcome. A quiet beach was close by (5-10 minutes at most), although it's true that to reach it you have to walk down some stairs that, while not steep, were numerous. All in all, we loved it.
Cons: There was a bit of an issues with the shower, but nothing we couldn't solve with some creativity.

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.

8.3 Excellent
Pros: Central Location and friendly stuff
Cons: Alcohol from all inclusive package was not the best
6.3 Good
Pros: - the apartment was spacious - the staff helpful, excepting the bartenders
Cons: - all the drinks were awful. The coffee had a terrible taste (like a very diluted Ness cafe} The bartender told me that if I want real coffee I have to pay. All beverage drinks also very sweet and diluted. The Bulgarian draft beer was Ok, even they gave you on 75 ml glasses, not to consume too much. The cocktails were make with Bulgarian fake alcohol, and even so you don't have too much to chose - the food was not too tasty. You had a lot of food to choose, but only few has a good taste. All the cakes had no taste, and you would not be able to find any chocolate on these. Anyhow, it is enough food if you are not very exigent - it's a lot of noice in the night from the street. On the back of the hotel there are 2 night pubs, crowded with noisy German people, and the load music and voices till 4 o'clock in the morning will keep you awake, unless you're very tired. - the WiFi very poor. I was not able to use it - no parking, but they managed to find me a parking place a few hundred metres from properties with 10 leva per day (not secured} - the hotel has no beach, so you have to pay extra for the beds and umbrella

Nestled on the beach, this Golden Sands property is within 1 mi (2 km) of Nirvana Beach and Golden Sands Beach. Trifon Zarezan Beach and Cabacum Beach are also within 3 mi (5 km).
7.9 Good
Pros: We stayed in a mini-suite, the room is spacious, with beautiful seaview. Parking is convenient, just in front of the hotel, but you need to ask the reception to open the gate before you enter. All inclusive is convenient, we have a late lunch at the Italian restaurant at 2:30 p.m. which was after lunch hour. The room is clean. The beach is just in front of the hotel. There is a supermarket and many restaurants, shops along the promenade. I think I will come back again if I have chance to go to Golden Sands area. The reception is very helpful, the waiter in the Italian restaurant is very nice and attentive.
Cons: The bed is not good, the double bed is consists of 2 single bed, and which are bumpy, not comfortable, if they would change the mattress and bed, the room will be much better for couples to enjoy. We have encountered some unpleasant experience in the main restaurant, the people who served there seems not the same attitude to Western people and oriental people, when we ordered our dishes, we did not have response nor smile, it made us not know if she hear or not, then we ask, she replied in a poker face said she knew what we ordered, this is not the way we feel we should have in a resort for holiday.

Pros: The staff and services are quite good. The room was always clean and the food was varied.
Cons: The holiday with a small child I would never spend there one more time. The music and concerts that take place in the evenings(20:30-22:30) are at extremely loud level, even for an adult. Also every night there were fireworks that were scaring the child. There is no place where to walk with child.

6.7 Good
Pros: Nice, big, clean rooms. Good food, a lot of varieties, for any tastes. Drinks, acceptable, cocktails were nice, very good coffee at bars, not so nice at coffee machines.
Cons: All amenities, except pools and gym, have additional costs which are basically equivalent to any SPA costs. Being all inclusive and full of kids, I would expect that for adults the amenities would be free (sauna, steam room). Every morning at 7.30 before the pool opens there were few man waiting to occupy 4-6 chairs each, so by 8.30-9 AM there is no place left, although there is almost nobody at the pool. Employees don't really speak English, parking is very small and although you pay a lot per day, in case you find an empty space upon arrival, they still try to move your car in a parking that belongs to a nearby hotel. Air conditioning, although appears to be working has no impact on room temperature. TV, has incredible poor signal( but I noticed that everywhere I have been in Bulgaria).
