YesNoGolden sandsGreg Hawkins | 2 out of 2 found this review helpfulRight let me get this straight, all you people who are moaning on about the hotel, shut up for gods sake. listen to yourselves man get a grip. to the people that have been and complained about it, theres nothing wrong with the hotel. yer its a little basic, but its very clean. some one said how its used as a brothel or something when its actually not i swear down. theres a few germans in but not a lot. you lot who are complaining are making it bad for people who havent gone yet when its a decent hotel. right i want to say some good stuff about the hotel now. the bar staff and waiters are really nice. they never hav a cross word with you or anything like that, the indoor pool is nice and outdoor too. there arent any prostitutes in the hotel ([+]view more) so dont listen to the people who rekon there are. the food is nice but once again dont listen to those who say other wise. ive just got back from there this morning and it boils my p**s to see people badly commenting on the hotel when its really nice. the rooms are very clean as i have already said and the towels have 3 stars on them for gods sake, who ever said that thing about it only having 2 stars on. anyway all together its a really nice hotel and the resort is too. very cheap and well worth it. balkan is reasonable too. Pliska is a really good hotel so i advise you to go!!! the night club isnt the best...roxy disco is!Was this review helpful to you?

The staff are very freindly and the bar man micheal is brilliant everyone makes you feel welcome, the pool is lovely to lie at through the day and the is a big pool, and bar is opened all day, the intertainment is crap at nyt but theres plenty of nyt clubs everywhere, all being well i will be back with my boy next year again. There is one thing that puts the hotel down and that is the germans they are so ignorant! X JustineXWas this review helpful to you?

YesNoGolden sandsAnn Crowder | 2 out of 2 found this review helpfulMe, family and friends (a party of 18) returned from Golden Sands on the 25th August after a two week stay at the Pliska Hotel. We were very apprehensive about staying there after some of the comments we read on the internet about the Hotel. Me and my family have been going to Golden Sands on and off for the past 12 years and have always stayed down on the beach front in the past. I must say we found the staff to be very friendly. Hotel and pool were very clean. Only complaint was that the rooms were quite small although really this was not a big problem as you only really got ready and slept there. There are prostitutes up near the nightclubs but we found that they never bothered us unless one of our husbands were walking by themselves ([+]view more) and even then they immediately walked away upon realising they were with someone. Food in the Hotel was okay. We were half board and there were three choices of menu on a night although for some reason in the second week we could not mix and match from each menu which we had done earlier. I do not see what the problem with this was as obviously the ingredients were there to make such meals. The bar staff at the pool side bar during the day and night were great. Night time barman - ask Michael to show you top banana, quite clever. I would probably stay at this Hotel again.Was this review helpful to you?

The weather is absolutely brilliant. The restaurants serve great food. The rooms are small but they are cosy. There are prostitutes but they arent pushy. Just watch out for the blonde receptionist as she is a b***h. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.Was this review helpful to you?

The pool is great although the beds are abit close together.
Nightclub down in the basement is not the best alot of trouble in it last July.
No Air Con
We'll never be back in it.
But will of course go back to Golden Sands.Was this review helpful to you? YesNoGolden sandsBill Waites | 2 out of 2 found this review helpfulme and my sister stayed in the kalaraki hotel in June 2003.
it was a 20 minute walk up to near the pliska hotel which is near bonkers night club.
i was pissed off i had to walk to far to get hookers.
they charged 40 levs 'a go' when we were there, which is cheaper than anyone here in Tonbridge.
i never bothered to ask their ages so i cannot really comment.
but if you are single man, it's a good laugh..

YesNoGolden sandspaolo muzzin | 2 out of 2 found this review helpfulI was in Pliska Hotel with my girl in the period 24/08-29/08. Price was reasonable, breakfast excellent but in the bedroom there was a horrible smell and in the bathroom there was plenty of cobwebs. In the beach there's no space, you must pay everything, you can't breath 'cause there's no space and everywhere somebody trying to sell you unnecessary things. Golden Sands is not a place where you can relax. If you like to go in holiday for buying imitation bags and dresses, playing casino and prostitution it's your place!Was this review helpful to you? YesNoGolden sandsrichard simpson | 1 out of 1 found this review helpfulHaving come back from a two week holiday in golden sands @ the pliska hotel, all i can say about my holiday is that i fully enjoyed it. The staff apart from one or two that i care not to mention, were exceptional and very friendly. they couldn't do enough for you. the issue about the prostitutes is partly true but not to the extent that caroline informs people of. the food in the resort is second to none as is the hospitality. any way back to the hotel, i found it clean tidy although basic. the facilities were great value for money and the food in the hotel was more than adequate(believe me there is no one more fussy than me when it comes to food). i would recommend the pliska to anyone and i will be considering returning to the pliska inthe future.Was this review helpful to you? YesNoGolden sandsbryan haddington | 1 out of 1 found this review helpfulI would just like to back up all the points that Caroline has just made, strange how looking back through all the comments made, this would appear to have happened in the last year. Regarding the noise it starts about 3am and ends about 5am. The Germans seem to use it as a 18-30 for stag and hen nights, didn't spoil the holiday but just glad we didn't have children in tow.Was this review helpful to you? YesNoGolden sandsCaroline | 1 out of 1 found this review helpful: Just arrived back from two weeks at the Pliska. I have to say when we first arrived we where very happy to have been allocated there (Allocation on arrival). The pool was lovely, indoor pool with sauna and massage etc.. and everything was lovely and clean. Our room was basic but what more do you want. It was our first time in Bulgaria and the first thing that shocked me was how blatant the prostitutes are. I have been to many places in the world and I have never seen anything so bad in my whole life. They where physically groping men in the street. This goes for other people that I spoke to in the resort who where just as shocked. The sad thing being they where all very young some as young as 14/15. The strange thing we noticed straight ([+]view more) away about the resort is the groups of middle aged and older German men. After two day's, and realising how big the sex trade is in the resort, it did not take a rocket scientist to work out why all these groups of old german men where there. That's when our problems started with the Pliska. It is a multi national hotel. But I dont know whether it was the time of year or what, but it was mostly german (MEN). Who spent most of the day shouting and singing whilst drunk around the pool. So much so, that families with children felt uncomfortable and took them to neighbouring pool's or to the beach. And at night they spent most of the time shouting and singing whilst drunk as well. This is when we realised that the pliska was being used as a brothel at night. The prostitutes are able to pay for a room by the hour or twenty minutes as most of them used. They walked into reception, paid the fee and a maid is on hand 24 hours who, then goes in after them and cleans the room. It was more disturbing than anything else. Because it was mostly the german men who where going with them. And it would not be wrong to say some of them would have had granddaughters older than these poor girls. As a result, this ruined our time at the pliska. We and some others refused to use the pool (You didnt know what you might have caught from it) and I later found out. That the waitresses also provided services much cheaper than the working girls on the streets. All in all Golden Sands would have been nice, if the prostitutes where controlled. (let's face it they are everywhere in the world- but if they where kept to properly run establishments it would have been better). Sunny Beach as a result was more suitable for families (we hired a car and spent two days and a night there) Even though it is not advertised that way. There are no prostitutes roaming the streets. I would certainly recommend the Pliska if you are single, German and over 50 and looking for cheap sex. We will go back to Bulgaria to Nessebar as the people are lovely and the countryside is beautiful. But we will never go to Golden Sands again and would not recommend the pliska to anyone. Also, the cockroaches in the room made for a few sleepless nights. I hope this does not put you off Bulgaria. But I think advertising Golden Sands as a family resort is anything but true, and very unfair to people who ended up in our hotel through choice rather than being allocated as we where.Was this review helpful to you? YesNoGolden sandsIan Sewell | 1 out of 1 found this review helpfulI went to Hotel Pliska and I had an enjoyable time and prostitues were very reasonable. Weather was good from what I saw of it. I would recommend anybody to go.Was this review helpful to you?

I liked the evening program by the pool. The hotel is situated at good area.
Have a nice holiday!Was this review helpful to you? YesNoGolden sandsdavid agnew | 1 out of 1 found this review helpfulHi all. We have just returned from a fortnight stay at the Pliska Hotel in Golden Sands. We are a family of 5, and like Mrs Walton we too saw the e-mails regarding the prostitutes and were concerned but decided to give it a chance. We were on holiday from the 27-Jun to 11-Jul. I am quite sure that all comments will have been accurate when written.Our children are aged 17,15 and 13. We all thoroughly enjoyed our holiday and we saw no prostitutes at the Hotel. The hotel was spotless, standard rooms basic, pool fantastic and the resort as a whole was superb. So much so that we didn't want it to end. You can only say what you see and we would gladly go back at this time of the year.Was this review helpful to you?

You really do not notice the prostuites as every one stays away from them. Me and my husband did not notice them until the very last day that I was leaving( so they are really not a problem). I loved this hotel to bits and I really hope that eveyone decides to go to Hotel Pliska.Was this review helpful to you? YesNoGolden sandsnick mccay | 1 out of 1 found this review helpfulMy girlfriend and I went last summer and stayed in Pliska and the hotel was very basic but clean. To be honust i dont expect a lot from hotels cause its just a place to sleep and relax. I found the Breakfast very good, a nice mix of fresh fruit and cold meets. If i had not had a load to drink the night before i went for the scrambled egg and sausage option. A few of the nights we came back early and relaxed by the pool and had some very nice cocktails. It was a really nice setting too. The hotel it self was as ive said basic but very clean. No air conditioning so at night it was sometimes hard to get to sleep but putting the new bed sheets into the fridge before setting of to the beach always worked a treat. I would definitally go back butthe prostitutes are a problem !!!Was this review helpful to you?

YesNoGolden sandsshelagh and david | 1 out of 1 found this review helpfulthis hotel is not for families or those of us looking for fun. at night it turns into the local brothel, and the nightclub below it is just an extension of this. both locals and tourists use the hotel to have their twenty five minute sessions with the local prostitutes who will pickanyone up as they walk down the street . breakfast was very poor and only for the germans. staff were generally unfreindly.Was this review helpful to you?

Butterworth-UK | 1 out of 1 found this review helpful300m from the beach-rubbish! More like 1500m.Breakfast was poor & aimed towards Germans. If you were lucky enough to get any pastries you had to be carefull not to break your teeth. Reception on 1st floor which made the so called resturant more like a waiting area. With a few exceptions staff were generally unfriendly & didn't know how to smile. We were there five days & linen was not changed, only hand towels were changed once, no clean bath towels. Indoor and outdoor pools were lovely. Rooms were nice but very noisey due to the lift & thin walls,also bathroom nice but shower curtain didn't fit making floor slippery. The resort was lovely, just be careful in some resturants.Was this review helpful to you?
