Returned on 27th September following 7 nights half board at the Helena Sands Hotel (not to be confused with the Helena Park Hotel) which is in the same resort. We found the hotel lived up to it`s 5* rating. A spotlessly clean hotel in every aspect from the reception, bedroom, dining room, bar area and swimming pool. We found all the staff to be professional. The food and dining room staff were both excellent. A wide variety of food was available and appeared to cover all the guests needs at breakfast and dinner. My wife took advantage of the spa facilities and enjoyed the pampering on offer saying it employed staff that clearly new what they were doing. I know the issue of the cold water swimming pool is well documented on this site but I feel I must add my own comment. It is a comment that many would consider minor. I am not a lover of swimming in the sea and one of the reasons for selecting this hotel, was for the wonderful looking outdoor swimming pool. The air temperatures for the week we stayed were fantastic and to have enjoyed a swim in the pool would have been great but you would not want to leap in after dipping one foot into it. However the hotel did have a small indoor pool and this did get used every day by us.
