Hotel Helios  

A laid-back hotel close to Benidorm's clubs, bars, and beach, the Hotel Helios gets top marks for location. Pool-wise, there's a large one with a snack-come-cocktail bar on the side. The restaurant lays out a spread of both international and Spanish fare, too.

This place has a really central setting. It’s right in the heart of Benidorm and just a ten-minute walk from Playa de Levante – the town’s most popular beach. Lined by shops, bars and restaurants, this wide stretch of sand comes with all the trimmings.

The hotel itself is a big contemporary number, with bedrooms set over eight floors. They’re simple but smart. And they all come with extras like satellite TVs and private balconies.

Outside, meanwhile, the pool is the main attraction. It’s a big rectangular affair, framed by a spacious sun terrace. During the winter, it’s heated. There’s also a separate children’s pool, and during the summer a snack bar complete with a palm-fringed dining terrace.

In terms of food, big global buffets with show cooking means there’s always plenty of choice. Dishes tend to have a Spanish flavour – think paellas, tapas and fresh seafood – but there’s plenty of cuisine from other countries, too. We’re talking everything from steak and chips to pizzas. For after-dinner drinks, meanwhile, the open-air bar serves up cocktails by the pool.

Back again

Another return visit to the Hotel Helios in October. Beautiful weather to complement the beautiful hotel. A very warm welcome from Angela, quickly checked in, & up to our room. The hotel has lovely friendly faces, many of whom remember us. Warmly greeted in the dining room, & asked if we approved of the changes taking place, new tables, & arrangements. Yes! More changes planned, a new reception means the hotel will be closed for a month, re-opening on the 18th December.More

good hotel

stayed for two weeks in September.the only downfall for me was the restaurant.there was no head waiter to welcome you,cards were not checked.we stayed half board but I think if you were cheeky enough you could have had lunch as nobody checked.clearing of tables and resetting was slow when busy,may be a few more staff would have helped. reception bar and pool area were good as were the maids.i would stay here again but maybe on bed and breakfastMore

I stayed in the Helios from the 8th to the 15th November 2014. The hotel is in an ideal position for all the the bars and restaurants and local outdoor market. The room was a good size and was cleaned every day, the towels and sheets on the bed were also changed every day. There was a good choice of food in the restaurant and the staff were friendly and efficient. The reception staff were also very helpful. I have stayed in a lot of hotels in Benidorm and the Helios is one of the top hotels, I would recommend it to anyone.More

Beer festival week

Stayed here this week for the beer festival, not made breakfast any morning but had dinner and evening meals, lots of choice and the food was very nice. The maids come every day and the staff are very friendly and trust worthy. Left the safe wide open one day and the maids came, nothing touched. Would highly recommend this hotel to anyone.More

Benidorm holiday

This was a lovley hotel weather was really good even though was almost November best hotel we have stayed it in benidorm but evening meal can be a bit hectic so probably in peak summer season would be even busier your very central with shops and bars drinks in hotel reasonable also food was nice but can do with more on cold side such as tuna etc to go with salad instead if ham n cheese staff seem ok we would return and thinking of going same time next yearMore
