2 single 45 year old guys. went 21 sept for 1 week. hotel ok. resort - Eastbourne.2 gys looking for sun (was ok nice beach) nice food (both chefs found some good places- basically don't go to the really cheap or quiet places. follow the germans). a good drink- very cheap normally paid 3-4 lev (1.10-1.35) a pint in good bars. it's very quiet this time of year go out around town and you will end up back at the muppet bar - the liveliest place.looking for a little "romance" go during the season there are only couples & young germans at this time. taxi's get to varna for about 20 lev. pretend you are getting the bus they will drop their prices. always agree a price first or they will rip you off. varna- half price for food & beer-forget clothes unless you want to pay london prices to look like huggie bear.prostitutes- say no they go away. very funny some only know one word.(sex). not hundreds of them either its not a problem. single guys watch the gypsies they want to go for a drink for you & "make love to you" they will drug you and rob you. all in all not a bad place but really has no more to offer than the spanish resorts apart from it's cheap

The hotel is located at: 43°16'17.59"N, 28°02'8.04"E. It shows up in Google Earth but not Google Maps. It's a good 10min walk to the nearest public beach, and about 15min walk to Golden Sands proper. The internet is fast for hotel standards and while they have wifi in the lobby, the rooms only offer a 10ft ethernet cable which is definitely annoying. Otherwise I really enjoyed the stay - the hotel is in a very quiet area, rooms are huge (think Las Vegas) and all have balconies, restaurant had good prices and great food, breakfast was Balkan but varied and filling, and the staff I met were hardworking and professional. Half the days I just hung out at the pool. I was there mid-June, so occupancy was maybe 40%. Value was very good.

I stayed for 5 nights in this hotel in the first week in September and it was excellent value for money.
All the hotel staff were friendly and very helpful, while at the same time respecting my privacy.
The Reception staff in particular were a big help to me as I had some complicated taxi trips to organize, and they also managed to arrange a late check-out for me even though I had not originally booked it.
The pool was wonderful and the setting around the pool really lovely - eating breakfast in such pretty surroundings was a joy.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Hotel Royal is an older hotel, although it has had some renovations. It's a little run-down at the edges, but for the money and "all inclusive" aspect, it is well worth the stay. The food was a cut above what I have experienced at other all inclusive resorts; and plenty of "snack times" during the day plus good local beer, wine and liquors from a bartender who had a very free pouring hand. The room was adequate, with a good A/C system, great view (everyone either has a pool or sea view), plenty of channels on the TV (in various languages) and decent toilet/shower. Staff was helpful although their English was basic. It is in a good location less than a 10 minute walk to the beach and tons of cafes, restaurants, clubs and and boutiques closer by.

When I arrived at the hotel, they asked for a printed voucher for my stay. I told them that I have everything on my phone and showed them the itenary. They asked me to print it out. Smart idea as I am traveling with my printer. The staff does not represent a 5 star hotel. Other than that, great location. You have to pay at the beach for the umbrella etc. which was also disappointing.
