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.

Smart wooden floors, soft lighting and matching soft furnishings create a stylish twin room. It can sleep up to four in twin beds and one or two beds for children. Providing new towels and keeping the room clean and tidy, there’s daily maid service with linen changed every four nights. Depending on the room there's either a bath or shower, while air-conditioning is available from 1st May to 31st October. And just so you know, if you need to use the phone it needs to be prepaid.

This hotel is located close to the entertainment but far enough away to get a good nights sleep. Rooms are lovely and of a very good size. Bathroom was the best I have found in any of the Benidorm hotels with a huge walk in shower. Pool is lovely with plenty of sunbeds. The breakfast is the best I have had anywhere and lunch & evening meals good too. Staff were very welcoming.I really can't find anything not to like about this hotel. I would stay again quite happily.More

This the second year running I,ve stopped here and even through last year was great, this year with the improvements to the hotel, it was even better. Once again I have no complaints about the food, rooms or the hotel in general. Food was as expected was 1st class with a wide choice at meals times and always very hot. Nice pleasant dining room to enjoy your food in, nice pleasant waiting staff. The reception staff are very pleasant and always willing to help if need be. The rooms are very clean and the beds very comfortable. They are cleaned everyday. The pool area is very clean and has enough sun beds and seating to cater for everyone. The only let down is the pool side bar can be slow at times trying to get served, but that was understandable as the hotels as was full. All in all I would recommend this hotel to anyone who enjoys comfort and good service at all times. I will be back next year as I like this hotel. More

Stayed at Helios on a girly trip for the May bank holiday weekend, rooms big enough for three girls sharing and all the inevitable baggage, room cleaned and towels changed every day. Lovely food and plenty of room around the pool ( there was 18 of us alone ) staff friendly and chatty,perfect location too, only 5 minute walk to the strip. would definitely stay here again!More

Another good hotel
Stayed at Helios for a week...25 April till 2 May....nice hotel,big rooms and balcony which are kept very clean...beds changed during our stay and clean towels every day, we were on top floor facing pool which was nice and quite although u still hear the partying at night coming from the main strip at night but that was because we had to leave our door open as air conditioning hadn't been switched on yet,which I couldn't understand as was in mid 20s. Food was good,plenty choice although staff were slow at clearing tables,we started taking our own dishes back. Pool area nice but think it would be bit crushed when hotel it full,we did see pool attendant remove towels from sunbeds which had been sitting there unoccupied for while....good to see this. Yes I would go back to this hotel it is very central.More
