“the best breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2012

just read a review on here that the breakfast at Helios was not up to much we stayed for a week end of october and can only say it was the best breakfast we have had in Benidorm everything you could want for an english breakfast plus the chef cooking to order fried eggs and pancakes there was even porridge really what more do people want?. The rooms are spotless,staff friendly first time we have stayed at this hotel also first time I have posted a review. You honestly can not fault this hotel. have already booked again for next year

Thank you for taking the time to post this kind review sharing your first visit at the Hotel Helios.

We are pleased you find our breakfast the best in Benidorm as we try to offer the most varied options possible from cooked products, continental options and not forgetting our freshly baked bread and pastries we have to offer, cooked freshly every morning at the show cooking area.

We look forward to welcoming you back for your next visit in 2013.

Kind regards,

Just returned from a week at Helios (our first visit to Benidorm) hotel staff very friendly and welcoming and quick to deal wirth any requests you may have. Food was very varied with something for everyone. Thomson rep very helpful and always available at times specified on noticeboard, Soraya had a very cheery disposition. Thought beach in Benidorm was lovely. Did a boat trip to Benidorm island which was a complete waste of time and money. We found it very easy to travel on local buses also very cheap. Stayed full board, if going out for the day they would supply a very good picnic lunch. All in all a very nice week, would definitely consider this hotel for future holidays in Benidorm.

Just returned from Helios and have to say not the best for food, very repetitive and processed, if you like batter and breadcrumbs then this is right for you. Not a lot of fresh produce ie. veg and meat. The sweets were all jelly and mousse, but the cheese board was very good. The Hotel mainly has Belgium and Norwegian guests which reflects the entertainment, which consists of playing cards and line dancing. And 'woe betide' if you dared to sit at a regular table which they consider belongs to them, it is a mad rush at meal times to secure a place. The Thomson rep was barely to be seen and the info board was almost non existent. Again, if you need info you can obtain this from the European neighbours boards. The rooms were very clean and the shower room excellent. The location ideal for all the bars and clubs and regular bus route on the Avenue Mediteraineo. There are better hotels in Benidorm, which cater more for English and English humour.

Room Tip: Best rooms overlooking pool at front, but can be noisy

Thank you for sharing your experience at the Hotel Helios.

We are sorry to see from your review that the hotel did not meet your expectations.

In our restaurant we have the show cooking area located at the rear of the buffet where during every service we offer a different choice of meat, cooked on the spot by one of our chefs. There is also a selection of vegetables one the other side of the show cooking along with the vegetarian options on the regular buffet.

Our entertainment programme is varied and we try to provide activities and shows which appeal to a multi national audience.

We are sorry you did not find the overall holiday experience satisfactory, and if you have any suggestions or additional comments please do not hesitate to contact me via the hotel email address you will find on our website.

Kind Regards,

Jason McKerrell,

British Guest Relations.

Thank you for writing this fantastic review of our hotel.

We are pleased to see you were happy with your stay and got a pleasant surprise with our recently refurbished rooms.

In addition to the room refurbishment we also completed work on the swimming pool area which now has laminated flooring surrounding the pool area and a ramp permitting guests with limited mobility to be able to access with less effort.

We look forward to welcoming you back to the Hotel Helios in the very near future.

better than we expected staff were really helpful at all times(just as well thompson rep was rubbish) food varied and tasty but sometimes a bit cold entertainment was mainly geared to a large belgium party and not much english spoken but lighthearted and fun and you could always go out as it was very central i think we would definitly go back to this one room was also very comfortable and kept really clean thanyou to all the hardworking staff

Room Tip: ask for a pool view if you want any sun on your balcony

Thank you for sharing your holiday experience on Trip Advisor.

We are glad we were able to help you as much a possible during your stay.

During your stay we did have a very large group of Belgium guests staying with us who also performed in the evening in the lounge bar. This was only due to the group booking and the rest of the year we run an international entertainment programme suited for all nationalities.

We hope to see again in the very near future.

Stayed there late October for ten days and I have to say one of the best I have stayed in at the resort infact no it was the best.Rooms are very well presented and are cleaned to a high standard every day.Towels changed every day. The staff at the hotel are among hte best I have ever seen in Benidorm and I have been there many times,We went half board which we normaly dont do bed and breakfast being the norm.The breakfast choice is very good and plenty of choice.Evening meals are fine but we didnt eat in evey night as it is just not our thing but when we did eat in which was several times the choice was good and they have a section where there is a chef cooking as you wait.
Any bad points? This has got to be very picky, beds are a bit on the hard side and if you had noisey neighbours you might hear them as the sound insuation is next to nil.
Would I go back to the Helios?
Absolutly great hotel.

Room Tip: Very close to the beach 5 min walk and the local market Wed and Sun just round the corner.Very close...
