Matelas très dur on sent l'armature sur les cotés, ne correspond a un 4 étoiles. On n'a pas aimé le restaurant 1 - parce qu'il en sous-sol çà ressemble plus a un parking aménagé en restaurant. 2 - Pas de nappe sur les tables serviettes en papier. 3 - Le self est mal organisé, on se bouscule dans une allée avec la nourriture sur les cotés. On a bien […] aimé l'animation, la piscine, l'emplacement de l’hôtel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Хорошее питание и"
Отель расположен недалеко от автобусной станции, поэтому удобны поездки в Бланес, Тоссу, Барселону, Жирону. Пляж в 5-7 минутах ходьбы. При бронировании двухместного номера был выбор кроватей - две одноместные кровати или две двухместные, я думала, ошибка перевода, и выбрала второй вариант. Но на самом деле это оказался номер с двумя двухместными кроватями))) […] Кровати занимали все пространство в номере, но спать было очень удобно) Телевизор с испанскими и русскими каналами и кондиционер в номере были. Уборка каждый день,но белье за 6 дней как будто вообще не меняли, только полотенца. Отель на три звезды внешне, четвертую звезду недавно заимел. Отдельно стоит сказать о питании - очень вкусно, выбор огромный. На завтрак - свежеприготовленная яичница, блины, бекон, овощи, фрукты, мясные и сырные нарезки, йогурты, мюсли, всевозможная выпечка, кофе из кофемашины. На обед/ужин овощи, фрукты (нектарины, персики, дыни, арбузы, бананы), несколько видов мяса, рыбы, морепродукты, гарниры, десерты, мороженое, свежий хлеб из печки. Можно сделать салат из овощей, оливкового масла и специй. Напитки на обеде и ужине платные. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Notre séjour a été très bien, l'hôtel comprend beaucoup d'activités sur les journées. La piscine est très bien chauffée. Concernant les repas, le buffet est assez varié. La seule chose qui pourrait être améliorée la LITERIE, celle-ci n'est pas dut tout confortable et l'insonorisation, et faire un effort par rapport au parking.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Los colchones bastante malos y el desayuno malísimoGenuine Expedia guest review
Bon hôtel, à taille humaine et bien situé! État très correct! Les moins: Pas de parking gratuit à proximité Départ obligatoire avant 10h du matin, beaucoup trop tôt quand on est en vacances, impossible donc de profiter des avantages de l hôtel dans le cas d'un séjour court!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"4 stjerner??- max. 2- 4 stars now max. 2 stars"
Sengene, er som sten, ingen komfort. Der er støvet, og indtørret rengøringsvand på væggene- ingen minibar.Hotellet har dårlig lydisolering, mellem etager og vægge, meget støj også fra gaden. Morgenbuffeten. meget stor og kaffen nogenlunde- men kvaliteten af mad er under al kritik- alt som de billigste discount produkter. Dette hotel kan absolut ikke […] bære 4 stjerner- max 2, har engang boet på et 2 stjernet i Nice, det var langt bedre. Det ligger fint, dog ingen gode parkeringsforhold, de har en aftale med en p-kælder modsat side af gaden, til til priser som er helt hen i vejret- det koster mere at bruge p- pladser pr. dag, end lejen for bilen i 3 dage.

"Lovely Shearings Xmas & New Year"
01/03/15 gaznsar east midlands
We have just returned from a break with Shearings over Christmas and New Year staying at the Helios. We can only say how impressed we were with the hotel. The staff are incredibly helpful and work so hard to make your stay as comfortable as possible. The food, whilst not to everybody's taste, was for us just marvellous with lots of fresh fruit and vegetables, fresh meat, fish and seafood, very lovely puds (as my tight waistband will confirm....) and a good variety over the period with particularly good gala dinner food. The rooms were cleaned and sheets and towels changed daily (even on Christmas and New Year's day). The location of the hotel is excellent, near to the sea front area and the bus station for any trips around the area. As this was an out of season break there were no noise problems. Shearings staff were very knowledgable and helpful, drivers were great and the resort representative really informative about the area, life in Spain and provided useful advice to us and fellow passengers. I can ony recommend that you give this hotel a try for yourself - we read other reviews and can only say they are not representative of the experience we had at the hotel but as we said, this was an out of season break
"Not 4 star"
08/30/14 caleb19 London, United Kingdom
I wish I had taken more heed of other reviews, but this was kind of a last minute booking. This hotel is so not 4 star , definately 3 star, actually I've stayed in 3 star hotels and I've had a better time. First gripe , the noise . As a single parent with a 5 year old child, so not much consideration there, I was put on the 1st floor , it sounded like there was a riot outside my room , and that was with the windows shut . I know you can't have it all , as this hotel is very centrally located but the noise did not stop all night , even at 5am in the morning the noise was enough to wake the dead. I was so glad I only booked 4 nights if I booked a week I would have gone mental with sleep deprivation. The food is very poor quality , very repetitive some of the food my dog would have turned their nose up at it looked that unappetising. The Wifi is rubbish , both my iphone and ipad wouldn't connect up and l couldn't check emails. I know I am on holiday but I run my own business so needed online access daily , I ended up resorting to my 3G network. Also basic facilities , no fridge in the rooms so in 35 degree heat you couldn't even stock up on water . No locking safe either , and also even had to pay for water with evening meal ( half board) which just seemed penny pinching to me. The rooms needed bit of a refurb too, wood chip walls ., mould on tiles . Lloret De Mar itself is great beach Holliday destination , beach is clean ,crystal clear water, easy access to a fab water park , barcelona is also easy to get to by coach or train. All in all I would go back to lloret definately , it is one of the cheaper options if you have to go during kids school holidays as flights to barcelona or girona are not too expensive, definately would not stay in The Helios , one of the hotels on the beach front would have been better.
"Location great but loud"
08/08/14 kylewire Warrington, United Kingdom
Stayed for 5 nights at the start of this month, although the hotel only had us down for 4 nights. Quick email shown and price confirmed etc and we had our room keys. Stayed here with my mate for a rugby trip as Warrington were playing in Perpignan. The location was spot on, right on the main strip, if you wanted an early night than good luck as there is non stop noise and music till gone 5am. Myself and mate were the only Brits in the hotel, everybody else is German or French. Breakfast was ok, mainly catered for the Europeans. Swimming pool was very busy and very noisy definitely can't relax around it. I would go back again but not for as many nights. Perfect if you want non stop drinking an partying. 18/30's type place.
"Not 4 stars for sure..."
02/08/14 mihaimunteanu Barcelona, Spain
Everything old and very old inside. Sheets and blankets from Franco era. Fridge was missing from the room...lol Bathroom was stinking horrible. In the bathtub, the water did not flow if you won't keep the plug up...with your hand....lol Meals were OK, not a huge variety, but OK. Space in the restaurant very small, at the top hour hard to find a free seat. The pool OK. Who gave to this hotel 4 stars, has no shame. I would no recommend this hotel to anybody. I had a lot better experiences in Spanish hotels, this was horrible.

During a business tour in the city I stayed here for three days and four nights and my experience was great. From the moment I entered this building I really felt like being in a home away from home. All the guys there were very accommodating, the way they pampered us was outstanding. Property is very clean and well maintained. The room which I got had everything that I needed. Everything looked functional and new. Décor and furnishings were amazing. Highly recommended.
"Nice hotel, do not go full board!"
On the whole the hotel is pretty good, wouldn't say it deserves a four star rating but was clean and well presented. Staff were ok for the most part barring some of the restaurant staff who were pretty miserable and not very helpful. However it really lets itself down where the food is concerned. An awful buffet, and even the fresh cooked counter food was pretty inedible. My reco is stick with fried eggs on toast for breakfast and don't even try the rest! Powdered eggs, rank coffee, horrible juice and unripe fruit. Lunch and dinner both reminded me of school dinners or even worse. Actually, the lettuce and tomatoes were just about ok and I had a spring roll one day that passed for edible but that's pretty much it! It's a shame cos apart from that the hotel is pretty good. Lots of pensioners around and I'm not sure they were too happy to see 20 of us turn up on a stag but we were quite well behaved considering!
"Stayed for one week during summer"
02/20/13 stinger008 Brussels, Belgium
The hotel in central located, which is convenient so you can go everywhere on foot. The disadvantage is the noise from the disco's and bars in the vicinity. You will certainly be bothered by this noise. The beach is not far away, neither is the swimming pool where we had a lot of fun. Food was OK. No surprises for a three star hotel like this, but we found it not that expensive at all. Sangria ordered at the bar was pricy but worth the money!
"Xmas & New Year Disaster"
01/06/13 Hammond K Colchester, United Kingdom
Shearings full board holiday. Hotel 3 star, Food minus 1 star. In fifty years of holidays never seen so disgusting food served up as 4 star. Soup looked like dishwash & tasted as such, always lukewarm. Three main dishes shown as Pig, Chicken & Fish. At no time could you tell what the Pig or Chicken was, the fish usually had its head & tail attached. The vegetables, potatoes boiled hard as nails, half baked stone cold, mash OK served only twice rest of time CHIPS. These looked as though they were yesterdays reheated. Broccoli stone cold plus other cold veg. Vegetarian meals booked but no cooked food only Salads, so 12 days of salad lunches & dinners. The tea, using two tea bags managed a grey colour & tasted yuk, yet one could PURCHASE tea at the bar & get Brooke Bond!!! at a price. Many of our fellow traveller's purchased meals at MacDonalds that gives one an idea how good it was. This was the first time with Shearings & the last.
"Looks can decive."
08/17/12 Christopher J Plymouth, United Kingdom
Just arrived back from the Helios. Looks impressive when you go into the foyer. Positive points, central, staff friendly and accommodating from there it was all down hill. My wife and I travel all over Europe and we love to ear foreign foods but Food wise the Helios was appalling, fresh veg in very short supply, if you like chips and pasta then Ok. Sea food was terrible, fish fillets over cooked and hard, shell fish well a French couple opposite us eat one muscle made a face and pushed the food away from her. Did have boiled potatoes on one occasion but they were so hard could not cut them in half. Drinks vending machine did not work half the time producing just water. Lunch and evening meal had to pay for water. My wife and I stopped eating at the restaurant because it was so bad and eat out. Our room was terrible the bath drain was rusted so most of the water we presume was going down to the room below us as was the room above us into our bath room. Room cleaned only once, balcony was filthy with wine and beer stains all over and rail sticky. Noise wise cant really mark the Helios down as we expected high levels of noise when going to Lorette but revelers are in full swing until approx 5 am so can be difficult to sleep until then. Sorry not a Hotel for the faint hearted.
"Great location good service"
07/18/12 the-dj-doctor Manchester
i've now stayed in the Helios 3 times for the price its a good clean hotel foods good it's right on the main street now at night it can be very noisy so if you can ask for a pool side room that gets you away from the noise.Being on the main street your 2mins walk from all the main Discos places to eat Pubs the beach & Bus station a short walk to the back of the hotel there's plenty of shops so everything is on the Helios door step i will no doubt be back next summer and i'll stay in the Helios.
