Nice rooms and pool area, close to the beach. We stayed for a week, and there was nothing to complain about. Friendly staff, clean and relaxing. Exercise facilities and children play area. I can highly recommend this hotel.

We traveled here with Apollo and har pretty high expectations after reading a lot og Good things as well as paying a pretty high price (11000 nok PR.person 1 week).

Was here for 14 days. The hotel in itself is beautiful, the staff is nice, and it's easy to get around. The cleaning could've been better, the floors never felt or looked clean after the cleaningstaff cleaned it. The food at the poolbar is good, and not expensive. It's twenty meters from the bar to the beach, and there's a...

Santa Helena is a great hotel for a couple's holidays. It is quiet, offers great services, food is very good and different from a day to another. 2 huge pools are here for your convenience and a direct access to the beach with sunbeds will satisfy the others. Rooms are clean, beds are an absolute dream to sleep on, bathroom...

We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights after moving from another hotel. The one bedroomed suite we stayed in 710 was ideal looking over the sea with our 2 daughters aged 11 and 14.

This is a newly refurbished hotel. The apartments are modern and have most of what you need (airconditioned). We had an apartment with one bedroom, living room with kitchenette and bathroom. Ok size for 3 people. Two balconies, one from the bedroom and one from the living room. No big issue, but as it is no dish washer it should...
