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.

Still on holiday at Helena Park and all I can say is that there is nothing to fault. The people who work here the food is all excellent. For the money you pay for coming here you just can't argue. This is my first time in Bulgaria and sunny beach has everything you want. There are lots of families here so a very safe place even coming back to hotel late never felt even slightest nervous. All I can say is well done Helena Park for a good holiday would recommend to anyone. More
We booked a group trip to this hotel and have recently arrived back home. There were 4 of us in our early twenties and I would highlight to any young groups travelling that this hotel is more for the older generation. Here are a few of the honest positives and negatives of our experience visiting this hotel: Location: The location is spot on, same goes for most hotels in sunny beach though. It is situated right on the beach and at the quieter end of the main strip with plenty of beach bars offering 241 cocktails. Our favourite was the fiesta bar. The beach is nice and there is an area for Helena park visitors where the sun beds are free. The sea was very rocky so it can be difficult to walk in sometimes! There is plenty of fun water sports available. Pool area: The pool is a really decent size and although we spent most of our time on the beach, the animation team put on various activities during the day. They are not pushy though and leave you to it if you're not the 'joining in' type. Even in June there were hardly ever any sun beds available. The hotel doesn't cater for the amount of people they have, hence why most of the time we just sat on the beach or ventured out. The grounds are spotlessly maintained and backs on to its sister hotel Helena Sands. Food: We always found something to eat in the restaurant but it did get quite samey. There is also pool bar that serves salad/pizza/chips etc for lunch so everyone should be covered! You can ask for bottled water at reception which is always handy. Rooms: They were quite old fashioned. But definitely did the job. Plenty of plug sockets. Shower changes from hot to cold which was quite annoying. We were room 2154. We booked a sea view room but ended up with a room facing the next hotel. When we queried this with reception they had a funny attitude but showed us another room....which was just one floor up and also faced the next hotel. We didn't bother in the end as they weren't in any rush to please us. We had paid for a sea view too! The cleaners really didn't do a great job for us. Never clean cups and the duvets were just shoved back on the bed. Floors were never cleaned. I don't think this is the case for the whole hotel though as our friends rooms were cleaned nicely. Staff: As mentioned, they all had a bit of an attitude to be honest. We came across the odd lovely one. A lady at reception was so helpful and sweet in helping us find a local restaurant, but generally speaking, they are all pretty grumpy. We couldn't fault Kass the Thomson rep. He was great and helped our friends with an issue they had with keeping their room on their last day. (Just goes to show they can fit you in even if they are reluctant). Thomson excursions: We booked the the VIP catamaran cruise and Khans tent. Both were amazing trips and we'd certainly recommend! We had a great time. Overall we loved our trip to Bulgaria. It's cheap and cheerful! The hotel did the job but if we were to go again, we'd probably try another hotel perhaps further up the resort. More
