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.

First visit to Bulgaria and Helena Park and will definitely be heading back....
We stayed for a week and I honestly have no complaints regards the hotel or staff. It's set in gorgeous gardens at the end of the beach front strip, about a 20 minute walk away from the centre and Flower street. The public areas are clean and plentiful, we never had a problem finding a seat or a sunbed. The pool was freezing the one day I ventured for a swim, so after this we decided to relax and sunbath in a little sunken garden away from the pool area. With regards to the Sunbeds on the beach, I found this quite confusing as there are signs saying Hotel beach in front of the but when you actually ask its further down, but to be honest as the All Inclusive only works in the hotel I was happy to stay around the pool area. The rooms were clean, spacious and nicely decorated. We had a problem with the air con / heating system as it was too cold when we first arrived and we couldn't seem to control this from our room, but this was soon sorted out after a visit to the reception. We chose to stay at Helena Park Hotel as I had read that they cater for Vegetarians quite well and never having travelled to Bulgaria before I was concerned I would have trouble finding something to eat. Happy to say, that I ate well every day with plenty of fresh salads, pasta, rice and pizza. I couldn't complain with the variety of food. Food will never be the same as you find at home, so people should just accept this as part of the holiday experience. Walking into the main part of Sunny beach along the beach front has lots of bars and shops which is quite nice as you could stop for a drink, lunch or ice cream. If walking is a struggle they also hire out these three wheeler seated scooters for hire, which to be honest drove me mad as there were lots of young people zooming up and down the strip weaving in front of you and around you. This was the only I felt I might need to watch my belongings. From the centre you can get a water taxi to Nessebar which is well worth a morning or afternoon, and we attempted to get the trolley train back, but as you have to change half way we decided to explore and walk the rest of the way back which took roughly an hour. If you wish to go further afield there are plenty of excursion shops along the beach from with a variety of option on offer.More
a taste of 5 star for a 3 star price
we had the pleasure of holidaying here in September 2016. we have nothing but good things to say about this hotel. the food was show cooked, with fresh salads, bread still warm and delicious desserts inc. fresh fruit. something for everyone, even jars of baby food. the staff are hard working, efficient and always ready to help. the hotel is set in beautiful gardens, lovingly cared for, with sculptures and features. the animation team works hard to entertain without being pushy. our room was spotless, cleaned everyday with fresh towels left daily. there were no nasty extras as room safe, t.v. pool towels and wifi are free. a nice touch was the mini bar again free ( extra to refill.) This hotel has spoilt us for future holidays as we will always compare other hotels with this one. we always said "you get what you pay for," but here you get the 5 star treatment for a 3 star price. If anyone knows of any other hotel one can say that about please tell us. Why its not number one in sunny beach is beyond us. If you are going to sunny beach, our advice is to stay here. We try different counties each holiday. But we will be looking forward to returning here again soon. We could go on about individual points. all the good things have been said on trip advisor and some of the bad things that have been written is rubbish and in our opinion pick. please feel free to ask us about any points. ie snacks, beach , area ect. we will reply with our honest opinion.More

Really nice hotel
We decided that we needed last minute break and was recommended this hotel by friends M husband was very apprehensive about going here as he does not like beach holidays and he said he would go back so high praise indeed. It is a lovely hotel with a nice garden and pool, The service was good and the food was also good ( buffet style) plenty of choice, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend this hotel to other travellers. We found the beds rather hard but they did put a topper on when we mentioned this to the rep at the hotel. The pool was very cold and the sunbeds did have towels on them really early in the morning but we managed to get a bed every day . The lunch at the blue lagoon was very nice especially the pizza. Just outside the hotel is the prom which was lovely to walk down and see the bars and restaurant's on the beach and flower street is about a 30 minute walk away .We really enjoyed the trip to khans tent ( we booked this via the Thomson rep) we also went to Nessebar in the day and also in the evening for a evening meal. A taxi was about Â£15 which we thought was reasonable. More
We are just waiting to be picked up to return home, so I thought I'd write a quick review of our stay at Helena Park. The hotel is lovely, and the room is clean and comfortable. There are complimentary drinks in the mini bar on arrival and bottles of water are available as you need them. The food is varied and tasty, and there is great flexibility on when you can eat. As we were placed in the second sitting for dinner which is from 8 o'clock, we found a later lunch in the Blue Lagoon restaurant suited us better. The selection is slightly more limited, but there is enough choice to keep you going! We found the staff to be really friendly and helpful, and that type of service goes a long way :-) We have really enjoyed our stay, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel to others. A special mention goes to Yani Stoyanov who looked after us so well every night during dinner - super efficient and never stops smiling - thank you!More
