With gratitude, Natasha and Valera.
We were met by the hostess Galina, a very pleasant and attentive woman, who, like last year, throughout the rest (literally! ) took care of our comfort.
The food is very good quality, the portions are huge! Everything is the same as last year, only there were several times more choice on the menu.
We lived in a fairly spacious and clean room. The current cleaning was done according to our desire, very carefully. From the room there is access to the terrace, where we had breakfast and dinner overlooking the cozy courtyard. It was hot at lunch, so we ate in an air-conditioned room, and on cooler days - next to it in a shady gazebo : )
I hope this year I will be able to get to rest in the First Guest. Last year, we made it a little longer until the last minute, and everything was already booked for the dates that were convenient for us, so we had to change the vacation time.
When we arrived, Zatoka was crowded. I have never seen such an influx of people. On the beach, I inadvertently heard the stories of people who were vacationing in other hotels during the same period: at first they booked a room and sent an advance payment at one price, and when they arrived they were told the price was twice as high. In case of refusal, they were returned the advance payment and settled with them other applicants at the highest price, which at that time were plentiful. Once again I was convinced that we were in the right place and with conscientious people. In the First Guest, everything agreed upon was fulfilled, at what price we booked, at this price we lived.
I was very surprised by the guest’s previous review, I don’t know what time she had a rest (we were in August 2015), but there were none of these negatives during our vacation. The owner, Yuri, is a very responsive person, any technical issues were resolved very quickly, for example, several channels did not show for us, and everything was set up within an hour. We also asked for an extra blanket and they gave it to us right away. Towels were changed at our request every 2-3 days. The attitude and conditions are top notch, and clearly 100% value for money!
We wish Galina and Yuri further prosperity! We want to visit you again this year! Thanks!!
Katya, Sergey and Slava.
2. provided an umbrella, 3. wonderful girls - assistants, 4. good location.
And now for the bad. 1. Dirt, cobwebs and huge spiders all around (almost fall on your head, because of this it was scary to go out onto the terrace in the evening), 2. plumbing in a terrible state (rusty faucet and shower hose not fixed), 3. towels were not changed per week (on the site it is stated - once every three days), 4. in a 2-bed room, a sheet for shelter and a blanket one (! ) for two, 5. food of good quality, but lunch for 60 UAH. two times less than last year, 6. shish kebab, which the owner prepares is delicious, but the declared yield is 300 g - what? On the day of departure, Galina Ivanovna offered to pay for half a day (190 UAH). This takes place in hotels of the European level, but not in the First Guest Hotel, which obviously does not reach this level. Resting for the second year in a row, it seemed that Galina Ivanovna, in pursuit of money, forgot about such a concept as the human factor. Conclusion: Compared to last year, the level of the Guest House has fallen.
I really liked how clearly, in detail and brightly everything is painted on the site - all questions disappear by themselves.
As a result, everyone in the family loved it. The children were delighted with the convenient place to play with friends, the freedom in the yard (which is safe and spacious), the close sea and Liman.
The food is very tasty, varied and satisfying; cozy rooms, where everything you need is provided; quick resolution of any organizational issues and a very caring attitude towards guests.
And in general I would like to say: it is clear that everything is done with love, with attention to people and very carefully organized.
And one more thing: everything is good - the sea, and the beach, and attractions, and the market - everything is nearby, but at the same time, the hustle and bustle is somehow bypassed, and this is very important for a family holiday.
