This is a newly refurbished hotel. The apartments are modern and have most of what you need (airconditioned). We had an apartment with one bedroom, living room with kitchenette and bathroom. Ok size for 3 people. Two balconies, one from the bedroom and one from the living room. No big issue, but as it is no dish washer it should... More

The food is just like you will expect it, good some days and less good some days, but the chefs are helpfull and understanding. Overall a great hotel at... More

A nice and newly renovated hotel on the Beach with all new facilities and a great location to shops and other restaurants. We stayed as the hotel had just reopened and the staff had a very good attitude and made our stay even better. It was slightly expensive though, especially as they charge heavily for using the seperate pool chairs... More

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 staff working at the pool restaurant were also very friendly, customer service is taken seriously it feels. The garden area that lead up to the apartments is lovely and well kept with a good play area for the kids. The pool area... 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
