This villa-like hotel is classic sun, sea and sand territory, thanks to its big pool and the nearby sandy beach. To top things off, it won a TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice award in 2013.
The Hotel Helena Park is just minutes away from the supersized sandy beach. A beach bar sits right on the sands.
A big pool is tucked away among neat gardens. Rooms are on the large size too, with lounge areas kitted out in cushy sofas.

IN BULGARIA, EVERY HOUR IS HAPPY HOUR
12 of us visited Sunny Beach at the end of August 2014, we were all super excited and it surely didn't disappoint Positives: 1) The hotel is so close to the beach meaning you can choose whether you want to lounge by the pool or at the beach (although for the pool, put towels out early) 2) Quite a few Brits so easy to make friends. We also made friends with the animation team and bar staff they were great, they even ventured of with us twice. 3) Best hotel entertainment, on the last night there was a comedy show and music quiz. We were all hysterically laughing, it was genuinely that funny. So props to the animation team. 4) All inclusive cocktails were great and very strong as they don't really measure at all 5) Food was okay but there are lots of places to eat and drink nearby, in Bulgaria EVERY HOUR IS HAPPY HOUR (there's a great sports pub nearby where you can watch the football etcc and good food too) 6) Bulgaria as a destination is super cheap for everything including water sports so take full advantage. It was the first time I'd been jet skiing and I would definitely go again. 7) Rooms are clean, our bed was huge! 8) Wifi is free and works in the lobby, by the pool and thankfully worked on our balcony too. 9) As couldn't drink tap water, we drank bottled water but I'm fussy so thought it tasted a bit odd but there was a supermarket across the road that sold the good British Evian and lots of other British treats which i took a quick trip to on more than one occasion. 10) During our trip we also went to one of the water parks, there are many in Bulgaria. The hotel has a free bus that takes you there and brings you back. The water park was an amazing day out for the whole group, there were 12 of us, ages ranging from 16 to 50+ It was for sure a fun filled 10 days in a place that most people look down upon due to bad reputation of Sunny Beach from programmes like Sun Sex and Suspicious parents. This hotel is at the opposite end of Sunny Beach to the strip so it's not too loud of an evening. If planning on going to a Sunny a Beach for a girls/lads holiday, this isn't the right hotel but for anyone else I'd strongly recommend it!!! More
Would definitely recommend ð
Just arrived back from a 2 week's holiday. The Helena Park resort was a good choice, excellent value for money, great location, near to the beach and only a short stroll to the main strip, lots going on. The hotel and grounds was spotless - all the staff worked very hard, always keeping the place clean and tidy. The grounds and pool was very well maintained. Rooms were spacious and cleaned everyday. The food was delicious - a wide selection of starters, mains and deserts available. All the staff were polite, welcoming and happy to help. The first choice rep Becky was lovely - she was always around, chatting and checking you were enjoying your stay. Would recommend the VIP cruise excursion, excellent afternoon out. The Animation team were a happy bunch and always friendly, they worked very hard to keep you entertained. The sun beds by the pool and on the beach are a big issue, if your up later than 9 am, you will struggle to get a sun bed - holiday makers were reserving sun beds as early as 7am and hardly using them, the hotel needs to be more stricter on not allowing you to reserve the sun beds. We have stayed in Sunny Beach 6 times previous, but this is the first time we have stayed in the Helena Park and been all inclusive, but would definitely recommend, would go back again. More

Best holiday ever
Me and my partner stayed here following and overbooking at another hotel. We were totally overwhelmed by the amazing look of the hotel! The groups and initial appearance are amazing! The food was great, the hotel was spotlessly clean, and the staff couldn't do enough for you! The room we stayed in was a suit so we had an excellent view of the pool area, the room was well decorated and spacious enough for the two of us. The entertainment wasn't great, but they tried hard! Excellent location also, easy access to the 'the strip' which boasts many pubs and restaurants. Would definitely go back, loved every minute of our stay! More

The hotel and staff are very friendly and helpful. We had two lovely weeks and met a lot of really nice people. The Animation team work really hard and long days but always have time for you. Look out for Toni she really is a lovely and bubbly girl such a delight. As are all the time. Becky the First Choice rep is fantastic always on hand to help and give you advice and is very good at her job. Always smiling. The grounds are kept clean and tidy as is the whole hotel. The pool is a bit on the cold side but once in it is lovely. Need toilets poolside. Would recommend this hotel to anyone.More

Very enjoyable stay
Just returned from a great holiday at Helena Park, the room was spacious and very clean and the double bed was massive. The food is okay, it's standard all inclusive with not loads of variety but there's always something for everyone! Yes the pool is freezing cold but it's a welcome relief once you get used to it, it can be difficult to get beds at times but the staff are always on hand to help with that! The animation team are great and always cheerful but the entertainment is not very good. Our rep Becky was fantastic, very helpful and not at all pushy with excursions, always made the effort to have a chatð I would recommend this hotel More
