I have come to this hotel with high hopes, in spite of the less positive reviews, as I have been here a few years ago and I was pleased with my stay at Helios Spa. However, things appear to have changed a lot and, unfortunately, not for the better. Our stay at Helios Spa was close to dramatic. Only through... More

We were there for 2 weeks All inclusive in the Helios Spa side. First and foremost, this complex is 2 hotels. They are The Helios Spa and The Hilton Double Tree. Hilton now owns both hotels but has halved the staff to save on costs. One team of cleaning staff , one reception staff and one team of cooking staff... More

To be fair food is ok . No where near the beach everything is a low standard or not finished. No way 4 star. The rooms really let it down very shabby and carpets all stained TV big square box out of the ark can't get any programmes worth watching. I am here at the moment and I have had... More

Not at all a 4* hotel. Maybe 3* if you consider only the room and 1* if you consider the services, cleanliness and food. DO NOT go there. Pay an extra 100 EUR and go to Melia or Admiral or some other 4-5* place or pay 150 EUR less and go to a 3* hotel, it will be the same.... More

Stayed 6 nights at this hotel and was not impressed, the rooms were dated, very poor wifi and room service was a joke. I certainly would not rush back as it had nothing to offer in terms of service, location or value for money. The staff were friendly enough but to be honest did not feel they would go the... More

In short line: Food 1 from 10 Drinks 1 from 10 Room 5 from 10 Place - distance from the beach - 1 from 10 Never ever will come back. Not a good place for a family. The management and waiter didn t do a thing to move things quickly.

I was with my 7 and 9 year old kids in Helios spa 3.-10.8.2014 and thank God we had opportunity to have only 1 week holiday abroad this summer. This hotel is not even close to a 4 star hotel even in Bulgarian standards. The room was spacious but that is the only positive thing I can say about it.... More
