Had a great time in hilias retreat. A bit off the noisy center of Palolem but right on the beach. The hosts were amazingly friendly and helpful with every request. Will definitely come back to stay here.

Date of stay: September 2018

Helias Retreat is one of my Favourite place in south Goa.

The property is very near to Palolem Beach. Just opposite and 2 mins walk.

This was our second trip at Helias Retreat. The Owners Mr. and Mrs Helias Fernandes are very humble at heart and gem of a persons.

They have maintained the place very well. We had a group of 40 people (Youth) for 2 days stay. And we had occupied all the rooms.

Our stay was nicely arranged and all the necessities were taken cared.

Best for Couples with Children.

The Owner of the retreat Mr & Mrs Fernandes are very Good Hosts. We booked 5 Rooms for a big Family for 2 days. Rooms are big and clean with Balcony.Ample parking for Cars .Palolem beach is just 50 meters from the resort. Beach is nice & clean & safe for children. Not over-crowded like north goa beaches.The resort Owner helped us with finding a nice hotel for Dinner at Mollu"s Classic which serves Authentic Goan Seafood at very affordable price.I will surely recommend this resort for Families travelling to South Goa.

Room tip: Ground Floor rooms are spacious.

This is been the second time we have stayed at this comfortable and well maintained place.And are more than keen to recommend it for others to use.We were two couples staying there ( me and my wife; my sister and brother in law)

Product: Super clean rooms, fully furnished with all amenities like Cable TV, Wifi, Hot water geyser, air conditioning. Just a walk across the Palolem beach, shacks and other eateries.

Service: Mr and Mrs Fernandes have built this place with loads of love and care. They dont treat you as guests but as family members visiting their house. They try their best to assist you whenever you need them. The room attendants are quite professional and trust worthy. We had accidentally left wallets and valuables in open. On coming back the room was cleaned and service with all the valuables in place.

Mr. Fernandes was kind enough to pick us up himself on our special request. On the day we were leaving we had an early morning flight and had to leave the place by 3 in the morning on sunday. Mr. Hilias helped us arrange the transportation, however it turned out to be a stormy night with rains and wind lashing all over. Trees fell on over head wires disrupting electric supplies across the area. Mr. Hilias was up in the middle of the night co-ordinating our transfer and kept in touch till we reached the airport. We really appreciate his concern and a genuine thoughtful hospitality.

Room tip: Grnd flr rooms r bttr during season with easy access, on off season times the shacks gone the 1st flr rooms offer you the view of the ocean.
