We stayed at the Helmsley Sandcastle for 2 nights 11-12 May. Did wish we had upgraded to an oeanview as the room was a little dark overlooking a small courtyard at the back of the hotel. However, the room was very clean and well serviced. The staff were very polite and courteous. The beach is excellent and you can request loungers and umbrellas (at a charge) on the beach. Both pools were clean and well maintained with an ample supply of free towels. The breakfast was delicious and catered well for young children. The hotel is in a quiet location and ideal for those choosing a relaxing break. At the pool bar around 4.00 pm they have a selection of free Hors d'oeuvres. Overall a lovely hotel in a lovely setting and well worth a visit.
