Rating by category:
The room was very clean and spatious.The animation staff was funny and entertaining.
Most of all I liked friendly staff.
There were some minor problems: 1) laundry and ironing is not included (as I had a business trip, I needed my shirts to be ironed daily, and it was extra charge); 2) computers with paid access, staying in the lobby, have quite an abridged OS installed, so that some of the basic operations couldn't be handled (like downloading a file and writing it down on the flash card).
very nice hotel including staff, meals and entertainment
Location is great. Just a minute walk from the beach. The room was air conditioned. Overall probably one of the good hotels to stay in while in Golden Sands.
We expected much more for a 4* hotel. Everything was quite basic. They could have done more with the corrirors, elevators, the room interior etc. If you book all inclusive you should be aware that the drinks at the bar consist of the cheapest bulgarian alcohol. Same goes for the food (at the argentinian restaurant where we had late lunch, dinner and breakfast). The animators team can also be quite annoying for people who are looking for pure relaxation at the swimming pools with a loud music at the afternoon and quite noisy water ball games at the mornings.
Everything was excellent as the last year. If you want to have a good rest go there. The food is nice, the rooms are spacious, luxury and very comfortable. The garden and pools are so clean and nice. You have a choice of plenty of sports. Cocktails are good. No cheap issues. Very good staff. I recommend it!!! Once you've stayed there you don't want to go anywhere else. The hotel is maintained and looks the way it looked a year ago although being full during the summer.
The only little thing is that some of the meals in the restaurant are not so delicious prepared, but you have a big choice and no way to be disappointed. Really rich breakfast, lunch and dinner.
The room was very large, quiet and pleasant view. We liked very much this hotel!
I liked very much the location, the room. The food was great. My child was very enchanted about the animation and mini club.
I think that Bolero is one of the best hotels in Golden Sands. There is nothing to complain about. Everything was over my expectations... exept the food, where they can add more diversity.
the swiming pools, the food, some of the cocktails, the location, the staff
draft beer is horrible
The relaxing atmosphere, very good food
Expensive extra charge for parking, extra charge for umbrellas and local beverages on the beach, bathrooms could be cleaner, the spa is does not smell good
The place is great for family . The hotel areas its awesome with all you need : 3 swiming pools (2 outside and one inside wich is heated ) , tennis , food its more diverse than Arabella , children just love to play arround never get bored with animation team ! The beach its very close . You can see that General Manager does the right thing and everyone from Bolero put every services to your heands only with a big smile on their faces . Outside parking its realy cheap (abaut 3 euro) and safe.
One day the inside swiming pool was a disaster ,very very clorated that heart my eyes and I cough 1 day ; the windows of inside pool was always open and every you should tell to pool team to closed , wich they do it after 30 minutes...; room :shower gel was hardly extracted . Fitness running bands work very strange with a '' broken magnet '' that turns it on and off and the band is broken and fixed very ugly.. The worst thing was the 2 ugly prositutes I think emplyeed by Bolero that were every were you go. One day I went to Argentinian Restaurant thinking I get rid of them ,but again .. I sow them several time with childrens under 18 . Thats a very bad note. I hope next time I won't see them again !
The hotel is a short walk to the beach. Its pool area is very relaxing. The rooms are big with a large balcony. Excellent breakfast.
The lunch and dinner menu options were not as large as expected nor were they very good but were still decent enough for an all-inclusive. In-house restaurant reservations seemed to fill up quickly even though the hotel appeared not very full.
The quality of amenities (soap, shampoo) was not up to hotel standard
Location, meal, they offer supper snacks for late check in guests!, Big clean room, good territory, hotel staff is helpful and speaks your language.
I did not manage to get connection to internet via Wi Fi in the lobby. But this may be because of my lapton settings that we could not change. They changed the place where you can get and return towels without prerior information. I did not understand why a person in Bolero hotel uniform in the beach by his initiative checked my hotel card and then said that umbrellas and bedstones were not for hotel guests.
the food, the indoor pool was not heated
