Zhemchuzhina is big hotel, located in centre. So not only beach, but also main street with restaurants, enbankment, parks and sightseeings are near. Some rooms are renovated, some- not. I was upgraded to better one. View from my window was amazing - blue sea and great sunsets. On evening I used to walk on the enbankment or Platan street - it is just 5 minutes walk from Hotel.

Such a big and great hotel! This place is exactly how I prefer it. It has many perfect restaurants and healthy food. I saw Russian side of Black sea-its very interesting! Russian service and culture-you must have to feel it. Quiet, nice reseptionists and ambiance. The garden near the hotel was also a treat. Nice location in the center of the SOCHI…. great room well decorated…. Just come and enjoy it.... for business or pleasure/

Hi. We decided to spend vacations in Sochi at the very last moment. We have chosen Parus Hotel first but we were chocked upon the arrival. Main building is located almost at the football field near the railway & the rates are very high. Seaside building is under reconstruction, corridors are dirty. Beach is nearby but it is very small .So we decided to move to Zhemchuzhina. We found ourselves in heaven! They met us very friendly. We got pool view room. It was about 8 p.m. We went for walk, visited the restaurant so we had really romantic evening))) The morning started very well. Beach with pebbles & sand, large swimming pool & kid swimming pool, giant seafront with bars & restaurants. The disco club did not disturb us at all. The hotel amenities are very good for 3stars. Polite staff, security…Location is great (no railway nearby): parks, Dendrarium, Dolphinarium, Zimniy Theatre are in walking distance. I like fun & I had an opportunity to entertain myself a lot)))) Few words about the excursions. They are expensive. We visited sights without guide. The way to Roza Khutor takes about 2 hours by 105c bus. Cable road fee is 850 rubles but you may choose the shortest & cheapest one. On the way back we visited the trout farm. 33 waterfalls is beautiful place but I have not seen 33 waterfalls). We saved some money. I will come back to Zhemchuzhina with great pleasure! If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks for the attention!Thanks Sochi!

We did not want too much to go to Sochi & to stay at Zhemchuzhina Hotel. But we were pleasantly surprised upon our arrival. The first point-the hotel driver picked us up in the airport ,he was very polite & helped us to carry the luggage .Transfer is not expensive. The second point is the Reception. The lobby interior is gorgeous, the receptionists are very polite & friendly . We were checked in immediately despite the early arrival. We drunk the welcome cocktail with great pleasure after our long trip in a hot day. The third point I is our wonderful Suite. When we were choosing the hotel we read negative comments about the hotel rooms but we were completely satisfied upon the arrival. Magnificent sea & Zimny Theatre . We liked as well: 1. The swimming-pool.It was our first visit so I cannot compare with past but nowadays its excellent. Kid swimming-pool water is clear & warm. Optimal depth & safety stares. The big swimming-pool is very comfortable as well , different depth ,very clear water The pool area is very convenient :chairs & tables, sofas, sunbeds, non-slippery wooden floor. 2. Swimming pool employees .Very polite guy works on Towels rental desk. In peak hours there is a lack of towels. We did not see lifeguards often .But one of them is very cheerful , he always smiles 3. Lobby bar is nice. Mojito by the swimming pool is great idea! Ice-cream was not frozen enough. The waiters are polite, barmen are cheerful & friendly. 4. Animators are great .They create funny atmosphere every day for children & adults with dances & games. Every Sunday they perform interactive exiting show . We got only positive emotions ! 5. Hotel area is very nice.We walked & admired. Plants are very beautiful. 6. Sea. Water is clear enough. One part of beach is pebbled, another is one is sandy. There are WC, showers,first aid station, massage service 7. Buffet breakfast. Great choice of fruits, yogurts, sausages, kashas. They cook crepes in restaurant dining area. Buffet lunch & buffet dinner.The choice is more poor but food is tasty as well. Negative point is scarce of seating places in the morning 8. Restaurants. We visited 4 restaurants.Menu is almost similar. Friendly staff & good cuisine. But prices are high. We paid 5000-7000 rubles per 4 persons. Our 10 days of vacations were great. We relaxed & we will be happy to come back again!!

Summer holidays at Zhemchuzhina is a tradition of my husband ’family. My husband has sent our son & me to Zhemchuzhina for the third time. To be honest I did not like to stay at Zhemchuzhina. Soviet-style rooms were very old. Food is poor. There are no any entertainments. This August we came to Zhemchuzhina again. I wished to see Olympic Sochi. I was really totally surprised. The hotel is completely renovated.Hotel transfer is not expensive. Reception employees are very polite. In half an hour after our arrival we were already swimming in the clearest water of pool. Last year the pool was very dirty. Buffet breakfast is very tasty. We always had lunch & dinner at the hotel. We like the small cook who cooked pancakes just at the dining area. Every night we visited shows & parties for kids & adults. We spent here 1 wonderful week. My only advice is not to take towels from home because there are towels in the bathroom as well as at the beach. I will visit Zhemchuzhina again with great pleasure!
