Perfect location for the train station (even with luggage) and Santa Margherita totally at your disposal. The 2 Monica's at the front desk were amazing! They were really helpful and so friendly. We were upgraded to a room with a bigger balcony as it was low season and also our honeymoon (which was really sweet). The room was fine- really... More

The staff was extremely nice. We had a Superior room. The room was absolutely spotless and beautiful. Housekeeping was very good and also a great breakfast included in the room rate. The views were amazing. Second stay here and it was just as good if not better! Staff was very friendly and helpful throughout the hotel and the facilities were... More

We had a room with a terrace facing the bay...it was HUGE. The room was great and clean The pool was great! The kids all loved it and we never really had a hard time finding chairs. We spent a lot of time going back and forth from the beach and the pool. Plenty of decent restaurants within walking distance.... More

We arrived early at 1:30pm and Monica did a great job of checking us in and answering any questions we had. All employees were very friendly and helpful with offering suggestions for dinner as well as activities the area offered. We had a room on the 2nd floor overlooking the beach and the big hotel pool.. Perfect room,a fantastic view... More

Expensive hotel (280 euros for a night) for what it is. Everything is old. the Room is tiny and it is noisy. The bathtube is half size and you have to sit in it with hardly no hot water. The terrasse has bright light on it all night. The beakfast has amost nothing for a 4 star hotel. The receptionnist... More

A quiet location, but within easy reach of the center. A masterclass in how a hotel should be run. The room was elegant and stuff could not have been more charming or helpful. They have the most wonderful pool and totally free of charge for the hotel guest. Grazie mille for a great stay!

It is a small hotel with a wonderful location - not sure how many rooms - maybe 28? We were there with two other couples a month ago and everyone loved staying there. The pool area is out standing. All front desk personnel whom we had come across were kind, helpful and speaks very good English. Nice breakfast with fresh... More

Their is nothing bad to say about Hotel Helios. It is clean and the staff are lovely and with a fab location you can't go wrong. Try and get a room with a sea view if you can. The bar is daylight robbery but nothing in this area is cheap. I will stay again without question.

We loved this hotel and wouldn't hesitate to stay again if the budget allowed. It is well worth the extra money to stay on the seaside. The views are stunning and expansive - you look straight out to sea and see all the boats and ships coming in. The main road is behind the hotel so rooms on this side... More
