We have just returned from a week at this 3* hotel and were really impressed with it as it's position on the seafront is excellent with it's lovely long promenade and it is within easy walking distance of the lovely old town of Almunecar.

Just returned from this Hotel, we were there last year in May. All I can say someone must have took charge of the Restaurant, and had a word into some ones shell like, because it has improved one hundred percent, the food was plentiful, and the selections were very good. The best part of it was the staff the waiters... More

This is our fourth stay at this hotel, and our seventh visit to Almunecar. The hotel is light, bright and welcoming. It has an excellent position on the promenade facing the beach. The promenade is an attractive place to sit or walk. The beach is shingle, and can look grey and dull. It does extend a long way. Reception at... More

Our first holiday with saga staying for a week in June. Excellent location, food and cleanliness. We needed a stress free break after a bad year. This was not the case for some of the time.

The Helios Hotel is situated frontline to the lovely beach. I was most impressed at the standard and professionalism offered to us througout our stay. To start with, although it is only a three star hotel, the whole set up warrents another star. The hotel has a spa, swimming pool and sun bathing terrace. The rooms are big and airy... More

Have recently returned from 4 weeks at this hotel. Its location couldn't be better as it overlooks the sea and the lovely promenade. It was our second visit and each time we have been impressed by the friendliness of all the staff. As one would expect in a large hotel catering for different nationalities from Spanish to Scandinavians to Brits,... More

The location is pretty central in Almunecar with 20 minutes walk to the bus station (but there is a bus from outside the hotel at some times of day) and 10-15 minutes dependant... More
