Hotel Helios  


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.

Better than some 4 star hotels

Stayed here end of march beginning of April. Hotel was spotless. Stayed on a full board basis food was very good all week lots of choice. Staff very helpful. Juan kept the restaurant running smooth any problems just have a word with him.. Pool area ok for size of hotel. But the best bit for me in the bar cocktails of the day I found the mojito. Wow best drink in the world. Juan behind the bar made them annamaria brought them and I drank them. Would definitely stay there again. Good position also away from the strip nice and quiet at night.More

Lovely Hotel

We stayed at the Helios for 5 nights and what a lovely hotel. It is very clean and well kept. Our room was very good with a pool and sea view in the distance. The room was very large. The bathroom looked very new and with a beautiful jacuzzi bath. We found the staff on reception very helpful. This hotel is ideally situated for all the night life of Benidorm but still far enough back, to not be disturbed by any noise late at night. The food was good, typically spanish. The show cooking could do with being better laid out as this caused queues at times. Would have no doubt about returning to this hotel in the future.More

Good value Hotel

My wife and I have just returned, after an enjoyable week at the Helios. The hotel was clean and the staff were welcoming, the rooms are large and most have been refurbished to a good standard. We stayed on the 6th floor with a walk in shower, which if you prefer a shower to a bath was really good. The down stairs lounge in the reception area had all the tables and chairs renewed while we were there, which is probably part of the on going refurbishment. The food in the restaurant was OK to good, the breakfast was good but the lunch and dinner was OK. I think they cater for the mainly Spanish and German guests which make up the majority of guests. The pool was warm but again you had the people getting up at 7.30 in the morning to claim a sunbed and a lot of them never retuned for hours until they decided it was time for an afternoon Siesta.More

A Perfect Hotel in Fun Filled Benidorm

I stayed at this hotel in March. I have stayed in Benidorm many times at various hotels. Helios was undoubtedly the best value for money. The staff are very efficient, the hotel well situated close to bars, restaurants and the beach. We stayed full board and the choice and quality of food was excellent.The rooms were of a good standard and size and the whole hotel was spotless. The pool is heated so you can swim all year round. There is a pool bar and plenty of sunbeds. To add to our enjoyment there was entertainment each afternoon and evening. There are also events for children and adults throughout the day. I will be returning soon!More
