2 of 5 stars Reviewed today NEW

My main reason for giving this 2 stars is the gap between quality and price, ie. if it was advertised and priced as a 2 or 3 star hotel I wouldn't mind the cranky small bathroom or sub-standard linen and amenities etc. but for the price it was just not worth it. Shame, because Santa Marguerita is a really beautiful... More

Rooms are clean, facilities are a little dated, but overall an enjoyable stay. Would recommend if staying in Santa Margarita. Staff are very helpful especially older gentleman who works at the breakfast room and bar. He was always so happy to help us. Pool is amazing and so is view, unfortunately like many hotels in Italy it has passed its... More

We stayed at the Helios on a girls' trip to Italy, using it as a base for a day trip to Portofino and also to Cinque Terre. The hotel rooms were well appointed and beautifully cool - we were on the second floor with a great balcony but the first floor rooms had huge terraces (definitely worth trying to get... More

Our second visit to this great hotel, wonderful location, wonderful staff who can't do enough for you, just make sure you leave an extra five minutes when dropping off the key and all set in a lovely real town, way better than Portafino- looking forward to our third trip next year.

This is one of the most amazing hotels I have ever stayed in. Right on the seafront with a resort-style pool area and dozens of loungers. Our room was on the corner, second floor, so had views out to sea and towards the beach and town. Also we had our own private roof terrace with sun loungers ,table and chairs... More

Had a very comfortable room with a large terrace overlooking the pool area and marina.All aspects of the hotel were managed well. Superb breakfast area and view. Short walk into the town ares replete with good restaurants. Also a perfect base for the walk to Portofino or take boats to othe Ligurian ports.

enjoy the view and the harbor activity.We LOVED our room at the Hotel Helios. Yes, the furnishings are a bit dates, but, the view, the location and the service more than make up for it! It is definitely worth it to spend the money for a large balcony and seaview. We spent mornings and afternoons enjoying the view and harbor... More
