This was our third visit to the Helona resort but the first since it left the Hilton Group. Our previous two stays had been great but we did wonder if that was due to our status at Hilton so were curious to see how we got on. We should not have worried because the high standards continued and we had... More

For nine days in May 2015 some 240 chess players from 29 countries, many with their partners and some siblings, rolled-up at the Helona Resort for the World Amateur Chess Championships. While the chess was fun and extremely well organised, the highest praise was reserved for the Hotel which is truly five-star. The food was so good, and the desserts... More

The hotel was very nice, probably the best in this location. HOwever the food was always same, for lunch there is almost no choice. The staff was ok, not much helpful. The room was very good, much better than we expected. It is nice place for a week relax, that is it.

Me and my girlfriend have been at Helona Resort in September 2014. The Hotel complex and the rooms were very nice. In September it was also not crowded at all (except in the Restaurant). So we always had a Relaxing time at the pool or at the beach. The biggest weakness of the Hotel was its Restaurant. First we had... More

We stayed at Helona in early October this year and cannot rate this hotel too highly. Aesthetically, it's most attractive by being low-rise with clever treatment of level changes on a sloping site and good architectural detailing. Despite having 238 rooms, the scale of Helona is never overwhelming and the layout affords good levels of privacy to the accommodation. The... More

I agree with all the positive points in previous reviews but for us the bonus was that we were able to use the facilities of the Lakitera Resort. We only had to walk 5 minutes down the beach and we were able to sail, kayak and stand up padel board. Bike hire was available and we cycled into Kardomena. We... More
