Loved this hotel. Felt like home. Great design, great pool (there's an outdoor one and an indoor one), and the staff was super friendly. Had a couple of issues but they were small:
Food was the same everyday and a little variety would have been nice, the bathtub in the room could have been larger, and the bartender looked like he didn't want to be there at all. Also, the lights in the room, while they were a nice yellow color, could have been brighter or adjustable, as there were times when I couldn't see anything in the room at night. I would also have loved strong WIFI in the hotel but it was largely only available in the lobby.
But overall, it was a superb experience and I would suggest it over any of the larger hotels closer to the beach. It was snuggled a small distance from the beach, which I appreciated, and the design of the hotel was super nice. Give it a try!
I was very impressed with Melia Grand Hermitage. The hotel offers very good conditions, the rooms are spacios and clean, woderful beds, and big bathrooms. Breakfast was very good and i recommend Level upgrade for the peopole who wanna spend a bit more money for a more luxurios holiday. This hotel has made our stay more enjoyable so it is highly recommneded. All my family loved it!

On arrival to this hotel we experienced an easy check in. When we reached our room we found our keycard did not actually work so had to use a manual key.
The room was clean and tidy and had a nice view of the sea from the balcony but the heating in the room did not work which meant it was freezing. Other members of our group next door to us also did not have heating that worked and their hair dryer in the bathroom also did NOT work. It seems nothing really works in this hotel.
The third time we ate at the hotel ship restaurant the waiter at breakfast brought out the complete wrong meals that were asked for but we said nothing and just ate it.
On the evening, we ordered food and pointed to the menu; an hour and a half later the food arrived in drips and drabs without any cutlery on our tables. There was dishes missing, and most people got food that they did not actually order. To top it all, the food was stone cold and they were not doing anything to solve the problem.
We left and went to reception to complain where we were told we had to pay the bill even though the food was not consumed. The ship manageress was very resistive and rude. We agreed to pay drinks but not food SO THEY HELD ONE OF OUR PASSPORTS AND SAID THEY WOULD NOT GIVE IT BACK UNTILL THE FULL BILL WAS PAID! I rang Expedia and they immediately spoke to the hotel and I got the passport back straight away.
DONT WASTE YOUR TIME WITH THIS HOTEL. MANAGEMENT IS SHOCKING AND IT IS NOT WORTH ALL THE EFFORT!!!!!!
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.

Its the most terrible hotel, they are lyers and they do not have 4 stars. At first they try to present the hotel for the other hotel in the center of the town showing some pics from the real hotel. The real name of this hotel is not the Royall the true name is Royall beach hotel. The try to attempt to lye everybody.

They were working on the hotel and during breakfast we were listening to machines chip up tiles which was not very relaxing to say the least. The spa services were nice and reasonably priced. It was a beautiful location and over all a pleasant stay.
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.
