It was a family holiday and we enjoyed it very much, the stuff was great and everything was ok. The hotel is very clean and nice, we liked the location in the island since it's not crowded and feels very homy. Highly recommended!

In essence I'm reviewing both the hotel and also Mark Warner holidays, as we travelled as part of a package with MW.

We had a superior sea view room - the hotel is well-designed so that we did have a great view rather than just a glimpse of the sea through some buildings! Breakfast & dinner were great; as always with a large buffet you have to choose carefully but with so much choice there was always something freshly cooked. The restaurant...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Helona Resort is a beautiful establishment with an impressive architecture. Small buildings scattered in beautiful gardens, elegant domes, cobbled alleys and natural materials such as stone, wood and marble, allow the entire complex to blend harmoniously with the surrounding, peaceful landscape. Large windows and openings offer a fantastic view to the sunny Aegean Sea and lighten up all interior spaces. Twenty-one infinity pools enable water to flow from one to the other, inviting guests to dive into summer happiness. The resort sits on a gentle hill that overlooks the beautiful Helona beach, on the southern coast of Kos island, at a peaceful area called Gourniatis, only 11 km from Kos international airport (KGS) and 4 km off the lively village Kardamena. Kos town is about 35 km away.Helona Resort has a delightful collection of spacious guest rooms, cosy family rooms, luxurious suites and private villas. Many of the rooms enjoy the extra privilege of a shared swimming pool in front of their terrace whilst others have lovely gardens spreading in front of them. Each one of the suites and villas has its own private pool. The resort has two restaurants, three bars, a spa and a conference center. ... more   less
