Hotel Riu Helios  

A large hotel right by the beach, the Hotel Riu Helios is a stand-out choice for family holidays.

The Hotel Riu Helios scores highly for its setting. A short walk through the grounds will take you to the beach, and the shops and bars of Sunny Beach are a 10-minute walk away.

The pool area is a real focal point - it's huge, and it sports a big terrace for sunbathing. Inside, you'll find a buffet eatery and two themed restaurants.

Family holiday

Here on family holiday, been to sunny beach on 3 occasions previously and this hotel has been the best so far, even down to the manger going to find and make me tea I liked. We could not praise the staff and management any better, well worth a look at in looking for a holiday.More

Great all inclusive holiday!

Everything we wanted from the holiday was there. Plenty of good quality food all day every day, lots of sun loungers available, the animation team was brilliant, not pushy but great fun. The Rio brand is fab, and booked again from next summer, somewhere else in Bulgaria. Would thoroughly recommendMore

Really good hotel in good location

This hotel has all that you would need for an all inclusive holiday. Well equipped and in a really good location. 10 mins walk to the strip so nice and quite for sleeping and relaxing during the day. Both pools very nice and very comfortable sun beds. The only slight negative that I have Is that the air conditioning was not very good in the room so in Aug the room was very hot. I did mention this to the staff but nothing was done about it.More

Fantastic hotel!

This hotel is ideally located for everything in sunny beach! It was the first time I had visited Bulgaria and didn't know what to expect after hearing mixed reviews. My partner and I visited 20th-27th June 2014 and had a fantastic time! Food was fantastic always plenty of choice, and I'm a fussy eater. The Asian restaurant is defiantly worth a visit! Hotel central to shops, bars and restaurants but a short 5 minutes walk to the hussle and bustle of the nightlife so this hotel is quiet enough for a good nights sleep! Pool area is lovely and the weather was perfect when we were there! Staff could not be more helpful and always said hello when passing. Overall this hotel should defiantly be your choice if you are visiting the sunny beach area! We will defiantly be back next time we visit sunny beach!More
