The hotel has simple but very adequate rooms - for sunshine insist on a poolside room - but all have a sea view from smallish balconies.The location of the hotel is excellent with a... More

We stayed at the Helios for a few days after New Year. Our room was large and very comfortable on the ninth floor with amazing sea views and very close to the wonderful sun terrace where you could sit for hours! Having talked to returning visitors it appears that a lot of money has been spent on the hotel over... More

A very welcome and unusual feature was that the heating worked! It's not that common in Spain, even out of season but the heating was available... More

Anyway spoke to the receptionist and we got a 'better' room next day - had to pay extra but it was worth it. I... More
