Me and my 9 year old child spent 2 weeks in Santa Helena in Platanias in July 2014. Pool area: There was lack of sun beds and umbrellas by the pool area. Reserving sunbeds was not permitted - in principle - but in practice they all were always reserved at the latest by 9 AM. There were less than 20... More

The Santa Helena was a perfect venue for a holiday with grandchildren who love swimming. The pool and the sea are practically next to each other (only 50 meters or so)! The restaurant is next to the beach and we were quite satisfied with our breakfasts there. We dined there every evening, but a couple of times we did have... More

This hotel is located just on the beach, it has nice clean rooms and friendly staff, we stayed there for one week in June. Good breakfast with all the normal stuff. Try a drink at the beach/pool bar. I would recommend this hotell to families and couples.

We were the first guests of the season and got a lovely warm welcome from the reception staff! In fact all the staff at the Santa Helena were extremely helpful during our stay - they are a real asset to the hotel. Our room was clean and comfortable - and well maintained by the cleaners each day. Despite booking a... More

Nice hotel for people who travel with children. Peaceful, quiet atmosphere, though the hotel wasn't full yet. Great pool, practically on the beach. Playground for kids. The hotel personnel is helpful and kind (at least in the spring time).
