Negative Reviews

Speedy Wi-Fi.

There were some guests that were disappointed with the speed of the Wi-Fi, advising at times the Wi-Fi was painfully slow when they tried to connect to the Wi-Fi in their rooms.

Undermanned hotel.

This is something the resort may need to look into. Some visitors to Sarova Whitesands Beach Resort & Spa advised they thought the hotel was short-staffed as it took ages for the hotel personnel to respond to requests such as asking for another bottle of water. Guests that had previously stayed at the resort also concluded there were fewer employees than the last time they stayed there.

Final say.

Although there were a few guests that advised the rooms were in need of being updated, most visitors enjoyed their stay.
