The lobby was spotless as we walked in which gave us high hopes. Staff spoke good English when I spoke to them (though my friend did most of the talking as she speaks fluent Spanish). They were very helpful in accepting a delivery of our lost luggage from Malaga Airport. The room was on the ground floor (albeit up a...

This is a lovely hotel on the seafront, unfortunately we had a room with a balcony that was not big enough to even put one chair on and a view of other buildings, however, the room was very clean with a huge comfortable bed and great bedding. The heating was good and very quiet. Walls are thin so you can...

The Hotel Helios has an impressive position opposite the San Cristobal beach in Almunecar, just yards from the Mediterranean. We were there for three nights, half board, and very much enjoyed our stay. From check in to check out, all staff we encountered were extremely helpful and efficient. Our room was very comfortable, spotlessly clean, and spacious, with an efficient...

The Hotel enjoys an excellent seafront position, rightly catering for locals and both Spanish & all other manner of European holiday makers, the Spanish enriching the experience, reminding us of years ago when not everyone spoke English.

This hotel has an excellent seafront position.
