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.

Just back from spending seven days here on an all inclusive deal with the Better Half. We found very very little to criticise during our fantastic stay. The food was great, with a wide variety of choice for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. You never felt that the dining room was crowded and the staff were really attentive to your drinks order and cleared tables quickly while you never felt rushed. Choice of bar at the hotel was good too, with a lobby bar if feeling posh, and a saloon and pool bar where you can get a drink in a plastic glass for drinking around the pool. My only criticism was the bar shut at midnight and it would have been nice to have the option for a few more hours, even if this was outside the all-inclusive package. The majority of guests at the hotel are German or Russian which does mean there is a lot of early morning reservations of sun loungers around the pool and at the free area on the beach, so my advice here is join the crowd and get out early to reserve a good spot. That said by about 1pm you can get a decent spot on the beach or at the pool. Yes, the Beach Bar is expensive, but I guess that is what you pay for convenience. The hotel is very clean, and our room was light, cool, modern and housekeeping replaced our towels daily. Every member of staff we met was friendly, attentive and happy to help which meant a lot. Being almost at the end of the promenade means you are a little quieter than normal, but it is only a ten minute walk to be full amongst all the action of Sunny Beach. We went with First Choice and had fantastic value for money for an all inclusive package costing less than Â£650 a head for seven nights. The rep was friendly and we had two great trips to Nesebar and Khans Tent. If you want good value for money and don't mind a resort not dominated by Brits then give this a whirl. Highly recommended, almost makes me want to break my 'never go somewhere twice' rule. More
Just came back from Bulgaria. Really pleased with our holiday. We had a great stay at Helena's resort. Great clean hotel, food was good, hotel staff is genuinely friendly and helpful. Room was nice. Pool was nice. Beach is 2 mins walk and very nice as well. No need to bring with you beach towels as the hotel provides them. I would recommend an excursion to old Nessebar town as it's very pretty but also quite tiny. We also had a night out at Khans tent which was a good night out (though food is a set menu and really boring but overall a good night out). Staying at Helena's you'd need to get up quite early to get a sunbed at the pool or beach but it's typical if there are Russians or Germans around. All in all a great break and I would recommend it to friends and would go back. More
We recently stayed at the Helena park hotel and found it a really nice hotel. Very clean hotel very friendly staff especially iscrem the lobby bar attendant and the young ladies that also tended the bars . The animation team were great, very friendly and lots of fun. The food was varied and plentiful and hot. Drinks were the usual local spirits but they were ok. The rooms were spacious with plenty of storage space our room overlooked the front of the hotel straight onto the main road and the supermarket but that didn't bother us however there were some downsides .... the reserving of sunbeds is a must if you want a good sunny area as a lot of the pool is shaded at some point in the day by the very big trees surrounding it...and don't be fooled by the photos showing the sister hotel pools which are by far much better than ours was as your not allowed to use them ð¬ the beach bar is also not part of the all Inclusive package .... as for the comment from a previous reviewer about the family that were staying in the sister hotel and taking advantage of the all inclusive food and bar they were my family and wasn't staying in any of the Helena hotels at all but we're in a dreadful hotel not fit for humans so consequently came to our hotel at a cost of Â£90 per day which we were very grateful to the hotel for letting them as they had my 2 grandchildren with them in that awful hotel we did ask for them to be moved to ours but unfortunately the hotel was full. The resort is a very busy resort but not too much hassle. The beaches ate nice and clean but there is a lot of seaweed on the tide edge and beds are not free. Hope you find this review helpful we will definitely return. More
Just returned from a lovely week with my partner, young 10 year old daughter, older daughter, son in law and 6 month old Grandson. Can't fault the rooms and food and all inclusive drinks, all of which were excellent. However, why is it that these hotels insist on letting guests reserve sunbeds??? Drives me mad! There were plenty of beds if people would just use them when they wanted instead of decorating them with towels! There were never more than 50% of them occupied at any time of the day. The first day we had no chance of getting beds so the next day we sat at the children's pool and then made our way over to the other pool at Helena Sands where there were plenty of beds. The reaction from other guests was awful! The lifeguard came over and told us to move as we were not allowed at that pool. I was mortified! We are professional people, I myself being Managing Director of a building plastics supplier and my daughter being a teacher. The next day we went to try the beach but the gentleman there was awful! He went mad when we dared to move some beds together as he told us the maximum was two beds to an umbrella! We therefore had to split up,really couldn't believe it! What really annoyed me was the fact that a big line of sunbeds by our pool were reserved everyday by a family where only two people were staying in our hotel and the others being from Helena Sands - obviously they could use our pool and reserve our sunbeds but also used our all inclusive bar and lunch snacks! Think the hotel has a few issues to sort out. More
My daughter and I spent lovely 11 days at Royal Helena Park hotel. That was a perfect holidays for both of us. Food was great. Everything fresh and tasty. The room was cleaned every day. Workers friendly and helpful. Anymation team was also great, doing their best. Would certainly recommend this hotel to everyone. Thank you for making our holidays perfect!!!!More
