      Perfect location with possibillities for seaside, nice rooms with plenty space, breakfast buffet is okay! Swimmingpool and sun terrace/veranda.

      No free WiFi and bad signal in some places in the hotel. Breakfast buffet closes a little early (10am) but that's just my personal opinion. Parking a little difficult (not always space) (for private parking you have to pay as I can remember). Lot of old people in hotel (maybe the season is the reason).

      Hotel Helios - Costa Tropical has some amazing views of the ocean from many rooms and especially from the sun-tanning deck at the top of the hotel. The breakfast buffet is good, albeit simple - lots of fresh fruit and some nice hot dishes. The location is perfect - across from the beach and close to many restaurants.

      Hotel Helios started charging for WiFi on October 1st 2010 and it's a big pain... 1 hour login is 1 Euro - but if you want to check email or Skype periodically throughout the day, you need to keep buying new logins - I only found out about the full day option on my last day (5 Euros). WiFi doesn't reach all rooms - so plan accordingly. Also, it was hard to get an iron - this isn't a business hotel, but can't be beat for vacations.

      brilliant location right next to the beach and a short walk from the centre of town

      the buffet could have been a little better, especially the breakfast but all in all it was still good.

      Nice and friendly staff No english spoken but that was no problem aswe spoke a bit of Spanish and they had a bit of English so all in all a tidy well priced Hotel with a pool also right by the sea

      Nothing really all ok might be a bit awkward if you arrive by car I did,nt see a car park

      The location is fantastic, right on the seafront and the public parking was also right outside the hotel. My single room was very clean, and had a lovely big private balcony overlooking the castle and the sea. Buffet breakfast was included and was excellent, with hot and cold choices available, lots of fresh fruit and bread and even bottles of cava if that was what you fancied (I did!). All in all a good hotel for a weekend break or longer, and only a few minutes along the beach front into the main shopping part of town.

      Can't think of anything I was unhappy with. When I arrived there was quite a long queue to check-in but it was the main August holiday weekend, and in any case their were plenty friendly members of staff who ensured that we didn't have to wait long to get the key for our rooms.

      The location is great , close to the beach and restaurants. Hotel facilities we good in general . Sea view was good and hotel in general was clean and well run.

      Staff were friendly but not overly. Parking was expensive and limited. It was a little lacking in atmosphere .

      Location Reception helpful Comfortable room

      Dining room was like a market place. Food indifferent. Waiters so overworked that they had no time to communicate with guests. Was not asked if I would like a drink at dinner, At breakfast, food whipped away while I was replenishing drink.
