I was so looking forward to our stay at Hotel Helios and sharing the lovely experience with my husband! The hotel is charming. Heavenly, the view from our room! The large terrace has table, chairs, umbrella and two lounge chairs. Late June/early July the pool temperature was perfect. I had been concerned (it would be too cool) since my last... More

On a motorcycle ride around Italy, I found myself in the town of St. Margarita Ligure. Based on its appearance, I stopped in to the Hotel Helios to inquire about a room. The hotel staff was very helpful and allowed me to park my motorcycle in the garage underneath. They gave me a room with a huge terrace and a... More

Not a hotel guest but visited the Beach Club for several days as a nice pool by not cheap at EUR70 for two people pet day. They do a half day but not half the price! 25 instead of 35. When I asked for a towel I was told I wasn't entitled to one as only have a half day... More

We have just spent a very enjoyable five days at Hotel Helios and are already planning our next visit. Yes the previous comments about the bedrooms are true and you have to be reasonably agile to negotiate the bath, grab handles would help less able visitors, BUT the view from the bedroom and terrace, the staff, especially the two Monicas,...

I went there for an aperitivo with my friends and it was amazing. Good food, beautiful view and if you will sit near the pool with the sunset light it can be once of the most romance places in the World

Booked a large terrace room - amazing views across the beach and town - huge terrace with sun lounges - but room a little small and dated. Bathroom extremely small with a very awkward shower/bath set-up. Walk to everything including train station, lovely pool area but sea water, so quite cold. Very friendly and helpful reception.

Attracted by its beautiful location just to the seaside and facilities to swim in a large salt water swimming pool as well as good facilities taking a sunbathe. Together with free parking although in a very small parking place down the hotel are the eye catchers. If you like shopping the hotel is within walking distance of the attractive center.... More

Well, this is hard hotel to review as Monica was absolutely wonderful and very helpful during our 3 night stay there. We stayed in a room with a huge balcony overlooking the sea. If it wasnt for the view and our private sunbathing area on our balcony i would not have been too happy witht he room. As many people... More

We had an ocean-facing room with a huge balcony and the view was spectacular. The room itself was somewhat on the small side, however I believe that the shape of all of the rooms is somewhat different, so it’s possible that some rooms might be a bit larger. I must say that all of the hotel were extremely friendly and... More

We visited this hotel recently and even though the over all experience wasn't bad there was a lingering damp smell in our room. The hotel really needs a bit of a revamp, all the fittings are extremely dated and some of them even a bit rusty. The mini refrigerator made such a noise we had to unplug it during the... More
