It is a small hotel with a wonderful location - not sure how many rooms - maybe 28? We were there with two other couples a month ago and everyone loved staying there. The pool area is out standing. All front desk personnel whom we had come across were kind, helpful and speaks very good English. Nice breakfast with fresh...

Their is nothing bad to say about Hotel Helios. It is clean and the staff are lovely and with a fab location you can't go wrong. Try and get a room with a sea view if you can. The bar is daylight robbery but nothing in this area is cheap. I will stay again without question.

We loved this hotel and wouldn't hesitate to stay again if the budget allowed. It is well worth the extra money to stay on the seaside. The views are stunning and expansive - you look straight out to sea and see all the boats and ships coming in. The main road is behind the hotel so rooms on this side...

The pluses to this hotel are the pool, the spacious balcony, the glorious buffet breakfast overlooking the sea, the location by the ferry, and the garage, if needed. The negative is the bathroom, outdated and small, with treacherous bathtubs.

I've stayed in this hotel a few times, and it's always excellent. First off, the location is incredible, especially if you have your room with a seaview. This is the only hotel in St. Margherita with a private beach. You wake up to the mediterranian waves and the amazinf atmosphere of Liguria. The busstop with busses to nearby cities is...

As everyone has said, this hotel is the only one with a private beach in Santa Margherita Ligure, and has a lovely sea-water swimming pool as well. We didn't use these as the weather was too cool. But the view from this hotel is amazing, of the whole harbour of SML curving around. We had an excellent room with sea...

The hotel location is the best in the town. It is the only one hotel with the private beach in S-Margherita. The second "plus" is the swimmig pool with sea water. The hotel has the garrage .

The hotel room was spacious and light, the air-conditioning worked well, the large buffet breakfast was amazing and the dining room overlooked the sea and the pool area which was simply glorious. Big fluffy beach towels provided that are lovely and soft. The only very slight flaw in an otherwise perfect stay was that the best located sun-loungers were reserved...

We just finished a 5 night stay at Hotel Helios and our experience was incredible. We have stayed in different hotels around the world, but always prefer to stay someplace with more local character rather than a large sterile chain type hotel. The personalized service we received from the hotel couldn't be beat. The Helios is in a perfect location...
