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.

Nice hotel at the least unsophisticated end of sunny beach
Nice hotel, very impressive sculptures around the building and outside. Fantastic waterfall over the pool when they turn it on. Some particularly helpful staff with very good English. Judging by the competition one of the best places to stay in sunny beach.More
Wonderful holiday at Helena Sands
This is my 6th time to stay at Helena Sands . Stayed 2 weeks from 21st June. As usual we had a great holiday. The Manager Cvetan and all the staff were excellent. The hotel is beautiful so quiet and clean. Huge selection of food for breakfast and dinner The swimming pool is big and so clean. Enjoyed aqua gym in pool every day free. Lovely private part of the beach with free sunbeds. Looking forward to our return visit next year.More

A lovely hotel
This is a lovely hotel in a great location. Situated at the quiet end of the Sunny Beach promenade and right in front of the beach with it's own section (have to pay for the beds and parasol) I would recommend Helena Sands for those who don't want to be in the centre where all the bars and restaurants are. A 10 -15 minute stroll takes you into the centre of Sunny Beach where there are plenty of restaurants with good food and bars with karaoke and entertainment. We were B and B only - the choice was exceptional for breakfast. Every taste catered for. Sets you up for the day! The hotel itself is lovely with comfortable seating in the reception area and lovely sculptures throughout the hotel. The pool area was great with plenty of sunbeds. Some of the staff were a bit 'reserved'. The young guy who took our cases to the room and the staff in the fish restaurant on our first night were very pleasant. I would give the lady who cleaned our room, 1623, a special mention. The cleanliness was first class and in all areas the cleaning was very good. They were out in force like a small army in the dining room after breakfast . On our room, I made the mistake of not booking a sea view but wasn't sure how to add to the booking on line as not easy to get through to Thomson on the telephone, so I would definitely recommend booking one as doesn't cost very much more and our view wasn't great looking out on another hotel. We had a very enjoyable holiday here though it was overcast and quite stormy on our last day. More
Nice Location for Sunny Beach
We were put in this hotel by Thomson's at the last minute as our original hotel was not ready. We are elderly and certainly did not want to be in Sunny Beach. Having said that the hotel is at the quieter end of the resort. We were given a suite and could not fault it in any way, very spacious and very clean. We were only bed and breakfast so cannot comment on the evening meals but the breakfast selection was exceptional only the coffee was not to our taste.There are coffee making facilities in the room but only one sachet each so if you like more than one do as we did and take your own. The air con is set at 23c which worried me but was perfect.The pool is very nice if a bit cool with plenty sunbeds and brolly's. We ate in the fish restaurant twice and found most of the staff lovely, and the food very good. There are lots of restaurants about many fast food burgers toasties etc. Most of the restaurants we could find are owned by the many hotels and some are not bad and cheap. Beware on the prom for these electric scooters or what ever they call them, they are very dangerous on a busy prom, they are fast and many being driven by children, how we never saw an accident was unbelievable, there were some near misses. We would like to come back to this hotel but are not keen on Sunny Beach.More
Had 10 nights here. The staff were helpful and friendly. The rooms you could not fault. The food was good. Desserts could do with improving though. The spa and gym we used every day. The pools were cold this time of year. But we swam most days as the weather was hot.More
