Helena Sands  

Just footsteps from the beach and laden with facilities, this elegant hotel is one of Sunny Beach’s finest.

The Helena Sands has grabbed one of the best spots in Sunny Beach. It’s at the quieter end of the resort, facing the beach, and just a 15-minute or so stroll away from the town centre.

Elegant interiors come as standard at this hotel. A grand staircase sweeps to the upper floors under elaborate chandeliers, and rooms are decorated in shades of peaches and cream.

Well I'm going to start with the hotel , It's lovely leather sofas marble floors rooms are ok not the best iv seen for this star hotel but clean and presentable . Food is fair to good it's hot and well presented. Staff on the other hand are not very bubbly or even happy looking in some cases quite rude and arrogant . There is a language barrier at the hotel and many of the staff either don't understand you or guess what it is your asking for. The bar on the beach which carries the same name as the hotel and boasts 5 stars are absolute crooks and very gypsy like in there behaviour . On several occasion got short changed or over charged. From a personal point of view I would not return here for a family holiday. Fortunately it's me and a few friends it's half acceptable but they seem more approachable to there Russian guest than there English and this is very noticeable. Don't be put of by my review it is a nice place but I'm afraid it's not my cup of tea. More

john K,

Lovely place, great service!

The place is really worth staying. The rooms are nice, spacious and the food is great. The only bad thing was free wifi which was extremely slow and not really usefull.The location is great as well close to the beach and far away from cacao where all youg crowds would stay.More

Krasislava, Sofia, Bulgaria

One of the best hotels we have stayed at. The rooms were spotless and spacious. There was plenty of choice with the food although some was a bit repetitive. We found the staff friendly and most spoke pretty good English, which helped as we had no Bulgarian. When we were there, there were many Russians, but again many of them spoke English which helped us get to know some nice people. The entertainment team were very friendly and worked hard, and if you took part it helped pass the time and helped get to know other holidaymakers. You are far enough away from the "tacky" part of Sunny Beach, which is really a place for the young, but close enough to take a 15 minute walk to get into the club life. The beach is great or just relax by the pool. Plenty of sun loungers on both. We would recommend the hotel to anyone. If you want an all inclusive holiday the adjoining Helena Park is the place to go.More
