Hotel in Golden sands, Bulgaria
I stayed at Hotel Chaika in August 2005. Most people found the hotel quite basic but stated that it was the best hotel they had ever stayed in. As the two weeks unfolded, the holiday developed into the holiday of a lifetime. So much so, during the last few days most people stayed in the hotel bar due to the tremendous atmosphere created by the staff. Credit must be given to the entire staff, a very helpfull and entertaining crew. Check out Krassimira, Malina and the rest of the receptionists. Dave the barman, and not forgetting Dora. Outstanding...... Hi Krassi ? The hotel itself is perfectly situated in Golden Sands. Just far enough away from the noise. Two minutes walk and you are in the middle of Party Street. What could be better. I enjoyed it that much I didn't bother getting on the plane home and stayed for another week. Room 201 should be 5 stars. Thanks Dora.
having just arrived back from bulgaria tourists beware we were booked in to the madara hotel only to be told after departing the plane that it had been overbooked and we were going to the chaika hotel on complaining to the courrier on the bus she said there was nothing she could do at 2 o'clock in the morning this is something you do not want to here.
on arriving at the hotel it was quite a culture shock the hotel looked like it was still in the communist era the rooms were very shabby and the faccilities were non existent on seeing the rep next morning she was apologetic & understandig and said she would look into the matter and get back to us .
the next day we were offered alternative accomodation for a price of £173 each.
I refused to pay as this was a substantial sum of money from our holiday budget.
Bulgaria itself & the people were freindly & warm and I would go back but not with balkan holidays as the way they treat tourists is unacceptable and I intend to take this matter to court if not satisfied with their response.
We have just returned from a holiday in Bulgria, and we were staying at the ChAIKA Hotel, never again will me and my family will be booking a holiday with this tour operater again, this must be the worst hotel in the resort, the only people that were on holiday in the hotel were the bar staff, the rooms were not cleaned out very well, and the bed sheets were only changed once in our two week stay, the bar was closing its doors at 10pm at nights leaving you with no where to drink, their was no televison working in any of the room, if you wanted you could buy a aerial for 5 lev aday, even at that the was still no picture. So any body going to book a holiday with balkan AOA dont as you will end up in the Chaika. i am only just glad to be back home, every body thats speaks english in that hotel dont want to be there and are dying to get back home.
This hotel is quit a nice resort. I visited it in 2001. It was a pleasant change from Main countries like, Spain and France. We decided we'd go here.
It was exciting for the whole family. Kids, and adults liked it. We thought it was cool. We didn't have any particular problems that need to be adressed, but it was warm there so I would sujest having very cool clothes!
We enjoyed it, i'm sure everyone else would. It's fun loving for all the family, even my parents enjoyed it. They went along with me, husband, and are 2 kids. Roanna, 5. Thomas 7. It was a good holiday resort, and we enjoyed spending are time there.
Although the hotel was reasonable, the rooms were very basic and dingy, they reminded me of 1 & 2 star rooms in greece about 15 years ago.
At the time of my stay several people asked for a transfer.
To say most of the hotels have been refurbished, they must have missed this one. Definately not worth a 2 star plus as advertised in the Balkan brochure.
