눉I chose the hotel because it offered free parking and I had a car. When I arrived the hotel is situated on what appears to be a private road, the road only leads to the hotel. I stopped outside the main entrance where the road widens out to give more space, and in the time it took to go into the hotel and ask reception where I could park, a lorry had pulled up outside the hotel and started to remove my car. There was nothing i could do about this . There happened to be a taxi driver in the hotel lobby who, for more than the cost of a taxi from Sofia airport to the centre of the city drove me round Golden Sands to the car pound to retrieve my car, a journey of 5 minutes. I can only assume this is a scam operated by the hotel, the taxi driver, the parking operators and the mayor. Once I had been fleeced of, in total, about 90 lev I got my car back. It seemed to me the whole of Golden Sands is run by mafia, the atmosphere was pretty dire, if you want to got o a party town go to Sunny Beach, it is much more relaxed and much more fun; if you want to have a really nice beach holiday go south of Bourgas, like the Bulgarians do, the resorts are smaller, prettier, quieter, the beaches cleaner and the sea warmer!
눇Once i got over the shock of how I was treated on arrival , everything was fine
