I can only smile as I write this review, as I am looking a picture of staff member Danny behind the front desk, he is a character, and so helpful.. I have been coming here since 2005, a lot has changed but all for the better. They seem to be upgrading all the time, furnishings, room fittings, everything is first... More

The rooms are very good but his hotel lets itself down by constantly trying to save money, Well I think it is because I can think of no reason why they flatly refuse to turn on the centralised air conditioning when it is so hot. Another example of cost saving are the lights on the landings which you have to... More

We have stayed here before and this second time did not disappoint. Everything is well kept and the variety in the restaurant whilst not exciting does offer something for everyone and I a quite fussy. The only thing that concerns us is the pressure placed on the bar staff during the happy hour in the evening. We would not want... More

Our second visit to this charming resort witha magnificent sea front promenade that goes on for miles - great for a good walk on flat ground. 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
