My husband and I just returned from a week long stay at Helios Bay, we had a fantastic time and would strongly recommend it to anyone looking for a bit of peace and quiet. We were looking for a place with access to both beach and pool and Helios Bay ticked both boxes. The pool is a good size and fantastically refreshing and the beach is only a couple of minutes down the gardens, in a lovely little bay. We had booked a studio room with a balcony but when we arrived we were disappointed to see that our room had fantastic sea views but unfortunately no balcony. As this was one of the most important features for us we complained (for the first time in our lives!) and the next day we were given the perfect room on the ground floor. The studio number 111 had a little terrace with even our own sun loungers, perfect views of the sea and sun set, and was very spacious. Both rooms were very clean, simple but nice with all facilities we needed. All staff we dealt with were extremely friendly and helpful. For 30 Euros we were able to extend our stay beyond the usual check out time until the evening, which was very convenient for us given our late flight back.
At first we were a little disappointed with the location of the hotel, just off the main road from Coral Bay to Paphos, with little else but a few other hotels, odd selection of restaurants, English Pubs and a couple of tourist shops in walking distance along the main road. However, in hindsight it was a minor downside as the hotel itself and its surroundings made fully up for it. While we struggled to find a traditional taverna nearby, we did have a couple of very good meals in the nearby restaurants, especially in Captain Corallos (where we got an additional starter, fruit and a drink on the house!) and Siena just next to the hotel. On some nights we took the bus to Paphos and Coral Bay, which were both really easy. For trips to supermarkets, bakeries, banks, sights etc we used our hired car.
