We spent the first night in Santa Margherita at another hotel, but decided to go for Helios after a night walk along the beach which included a restaurant stop at Helios. The food was delicious, and the location was super - you can just dive into the Mediterranean from the hotel sun beds, or enjoy their outdoor swimming pool. We...

An excellent hotel with receptionists who really wanted to help. Our room on the second floor was delightful and although the bathroom could have been larger it didn't spoil our enjoyment overall. We were quite happy with our sunbeds by the pool, but could understand the few reviewers who were disappointed not being able to get the beds near the...

We really enjoyed a few days at this hotel. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and it has a comfortable family type ambience. Food excellent, from breakfast to lunch to dinner at seafood restaurant. Comfortable and would go back any time.

Fantastic location in a great little town. Absolute waterfront with a pool, very classy little hotel. Monica was fantastic helping us with our rental car company, by calling them on our behalf to arrange a pick up. We arrived after a stressful 3 hour drive and without asking Monica sent us two glasses of prosecco to our room, all class....

The hotel has an excellent location at the waters edge. Our room had a great view of the Bay. The staff were helpful and attentive. The breakfast was good, with great views of the harbour. On hot sunny days it was good to have the pool and lagoon area for swimming and relaxing as the beaches get very busy. The...

Not sure why this hotel isn't more highly rated. We stayed there recently and I would say it's ideally situated for a 4-star choice in this town. The Metropole has nicer grounds but is a step up in cost, and the Helios is right on the water. Get a second (not third) floor room with the large terrace - lovely...

We enjoyed our stay at Helios. The staff was friendly. Breakfast was very nice. Beautiful views from the pool terrace and rooms. Santa Margherita is an old, cosy and beautiful resort. Good base to explore Cinque Terre.

Walk in the room & the sea view just eye catching! good location, close to main street & places to eat, to shop, to train or bus or boat! Rooms are clean but very very small especially the bathroom... the basin just on your lap while sitting on the toilet! >< you'd better stay at the balcony or poolside! I...
