The restaurant itself in the Helios average, but I was entitled to eat at the Hilton, where the food and decor was much better. The hotel has 2 swimming pools. 2 bars inside the hotel... More

I have come to this hotel with high hopes, in spite of the less positive reviews, as I have been here a few years ago and I was pleased with my stay at Helios Spa. However, things appear to have changed a lot and, unfortunately, not for the better. Our stay at Helios Spa was close to dramatic. Only through... More

Not at all a 4* hotel. Maybe 3* if you consider only the room and 1* if you consider the services, cleanliness and food. DO NOT go there. Pay an extra 100 EUR and go to Melia or Admiral or some other 4-5* place or pay 150 EUR less and go to a 3* hotel, it will be the same.... More
