We stayed at the helena from the 23rd of June until the 30th. Bulgaria wasn't a first choice for us but the travel agent suggested to it us after some good reviews and pictures.
On arrival to the helena it succeeded our expectations. We were met by the bell boy who took our cases from us while we were checking in (took 10mins.) He then took our luggage to the room for us and showed us how to work the free safe. The room was lovely, huge double bed and sofa bed, lovely modern bathroom and a balcony overlooking the pool which we made sure we asked for when booking it. There are bath towels and beach towels to use which can be changed everyday. To guarantee a sunbed by the pool it's probably best to get up quite early as by 9am nearly all of them were gone. I can imagine this to be worse in August. There is free sunbeds on the beach for the helena specifically but you cannot take drinks from the all inclusive out of the hotel grounds.
The food was lovely we client fault it. Breakfast is 7-10 cereal, fried breakfast, fruit, yogurts and continental. Lunch is 12:30-2:30 in the restaurant, but we didn't use this as we preferred the snack bar by the pool which is open from 10-4:30pm and serves pizza, chips, soup, salad, vegetables, chicken and icecream. The evening meal is in 2 servings which is 6-7:30 or 8-9:30.
All of the staff in the helena were lovely and all really attentive especially the waiters in the restaurant.
We chose 2 excursions by Thompson; the aqua park and khans tent. Both were fantastic and well worth their money. The aqua park has a free shuttle bus which will pick you up right outside the Helena. A coach will pick you up for khans tent, this is located at the highest point in sunny beach and the views are outstanding! You get a 4 course meal and a bottle of wine each and the show was amazing too.
All in all I would recommend this hotel to anybody via intron sunny beach and would recommend the resort too.
Had a wonderful holiday!
