excellent hotel. Staff are brilliant and very friendly. just remember to pack a kettle. rooms super clean. If you request a sea view be prepared for lots of loud noise from the bar on the beach. Entertainment staff are really good. Mario and Stan were not just good at getting people involved but they were also full of information about local history. We loved this holiday and would recomend this hotel to anyone.

We arrived back from The Helios 2nd July after a wonderful 2 week stay. I don't know where to start really because everything was fabulous. This Hotel has had an amazing makeover and any photos you see on travel websites can be very misleading. After a 3hr delayed flight from Cardiff with Thomsons we arrived at the hotel at 4:30 a.m. we were checked in promptly and offered tea,coffee,and some cakes.We declined all we wanted was to get to our room and fall into bed.We were given a room on the 2nd floor at the front of the hotel no: 2152 with no balcony. We were not disappointed at all. The room was very tastefully decorated in lovely blue tones fridge flat screen t.v. which did have an english channel crime investgation, and a music channel.Loads of wardrobe space,full lengh mirror,fab walk in shower best we've ever had in any Hotel we've ever been in and we've been in a few. We slept well and loved being in the front where we were not overlooked by anything.We heard a little bit of noise at night which can be expected,but didn't bother us at all and didn't last long.The Hotel staff are amazing and can't do enough for you. Food was good and plenty of choice,although did get a bit repetetive the second week.So we did venture out one night and had a steak at the Steakhouse just up the road from the Hotel yummy.....lots of shops just outside the Hotel all selling the usual things. Two lovely pools,we stayed around the quieter one,we had no trouble getting a bed the first week,but week two was a different story.New arrivals took it into their heads that they could reserve beds by leaving their towels on them OVERNIGHT!!!!!!!! I think these sort of actions downgrade lovely Hotels like The Helios and should be addressed. And you all know who you are.....Entertainment well the animation team work extremely hard,and they are all so friendly Tony,Nevy,Yana,Stan,Nick,& Alex,missing you all already.xx some of the evening shows they did had me in hysterics.We went to Khans tent, not to be missed fab food you get a bottle of wine,and a bottle of sprite if you don't want wine you can have 2 large beers instead.The show was fantastic,and at the end we all got up and danced to the fab group that played all evening.We took a local bus to Nessebar 1 lev each way,we also went to Sozopol another nice day out.We booked outside across the road from the Hotel much cheaper than Thomsons 65 lev for Khans & 52 for Sozopol(lunch included)
Weather was fantastic averaged 40-30 degrees,however our last two days it rained,so that's when we did a bit of shopping.We kept our room till 8 because of late flight home 90Lev we had to move rooms though which was a bit disappointing because when we booked it we were told we could keep our original room.So it was one mad rush to pack up and move 2 floors up overlooking large pool. We much preferred being at the front,much noisier overlooking pool area.The beach outside back of Hotel beautiful,so that's it really i could go on forever about The Helios and Sunny Beach,so go and find out for yourself i'm sure you won't be disappointed. Hope my review helps a little bit anyway.....

Room Tip: We preferred the front,pool & sea view rooms can be noisier

This is our 3rd time to this hotel and it is unbelievable. New bar,new snack restaurant ,dining room completely refurbished and new furniture throughout the ground floor,dining room,snack bar and lounge bar. New sunbeds and plenty of them. The food was a little disappointing but improved as our holiday progressed,obviously someone had dropped a hint.The staff as normal in the riu group were very friendly and helpful and the manager and restaurant manager were very visible.
