We were there for 2 weeks All inclusive in the Helios Spa side. First and foremost, this complex is 2 hotels. They are The Helios Spa and The Hilton Double Tree. Hilton now owns both hotels but has halved the staff to save on costs. One team of cleaning staff , one reception staff and one team of cooking staff... 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

Stayed 6 nights at this hotel and was not impressed, the rooms were dated, very poor wifi and room service was a joke. I certainly would not rush back as it had nothing to offer in terms of service, location or value for money. The staff were friendly enough but to be honest did not feel they would go the... More

I was with my 7 and 9 year old kids in Helios spa 3.-10.8.2014 and thank God we had opportunity to have only 1 week holiday abroad this summer. This hotel is not even close to a 4 star hotel even in Bulgarian standards. The room was spacious but that is the only positive thing I can say about it.... More

We were there for our honeymoon a year ago. Despite the golden sands the hotel was awful. disrespectful staffs , the average food, and boring days with just a little entertainment. Just suitable for old people. It was rather a motel than a hotel and just suitable for sleeping and having a breakfast. I don't recommend it at all.
