We stayed in Helios spacious apartments! Great set up with large balcony and rooms. A little noise from the road outside, but not a big problem for us. Kitchen is 2 rings and a microwave, plus fridge/freezer.
Nice big hotel complex with several pool areas to choose from, with the addition of a couple of water slides this year. Large stone beach also at hotel, so even though it can get busy there is always some where to sit/lay down.
Food: We paid for only breakfast - which was buffet style with full english or continental, so lots to choose from. We ate a few times at the hotel which was fine but a little expensive. If you walk out of hotel and turn left, 10-15 mins walk (or 2 stops on bus) is a small village with several cheaper restaurants. Lunch we made back at the room with stuff from the supermarket: 'AB' out of the hotel and turn right, it is just over the road. There are 3 other supermarkets (carrefour, eurospar, & lidl) if you go past AB and walk 10 mins past the petrol station.
Transport: Bus was 2 euro per person into town, however it was 7 euros each way with taxi. Avis rent a car are on site or there is car rental at the petrol station.
Internet: Free wifi at hotel, okay but not fast at all! Tip: If you have car hire with Avis you can rent their wifi for the rental period, you then have your own wifi unit you can carry around and works way from the car.
Kids club: Very good, but also very swedish. This is because they are by far the largest group of guests at the hotel.
Security: Worth paying the 15 euro a week for safety box (for peace of mind), as hotel is open to the road so anyone can just walk in.
Fitness: A great 1.6 km running route around hotel. Plus plenty of other extras you can pay for.
