5 all inclusive hotels on the Romanian coast, in 2016
For many years, the Romanian coast has been abandoned and let go of the inertia of the glory years. The number of tourists was decreasing, the accommodation units were deteriorating and there were fewer. During this time, Romanians discovered Turkey, Greece, Croatia, and then Bulgaria.
But for years, the situation has changed and changed for the better. For about 5 years, every year something is new on the Romanian coast. Mamaia resort was reborn for youth and weekend tourism, then Eforie SUD and Eforie NORD for family members, Vama Veche always attracted free people, eager for beach fun until late at night and at a campfire.
For about 3 years, the idea of all inclusive began to appear. At first more shy, with the related fears, but more and more hotels have decided to adopt this style. And in today's article, the AirlinesTravel team together with the travel agency Paradis Vacanţe de Vis presents 5 all inclusive hotels. Order doesn't matter, it's not a ranking. Let's get to know them!

But the list of all-inclusive hotels is growing from year to year. There are 2, 3 and 4 star hotels, some renovated and others still retain the imprint of the '90s. So far, the real problems of the Romanian coast are related to the lack of qualified staff, the lack of cleanliness in the resorts and the poorly maintained beaches. Let's hope that 2016 comes with changes in this regard as well.
