... until than as the Russians where stronger certainly in the second half. The Belgians are now qualified for the 8th of the final as well as the Dutch team. As Michel had threatened us that we would drink only coca cola light all night if Belgium would lose, we were happy when he opened the bottle of champagne that we offered them from France to celebrate. Michel had bought a beautiful leg of Spanish ham ...
... and locals and set our towels down ready to soak up more sun, with a promise of a quick dip in the sea. I, unfortunately wasn't quite liberal enough with the suntan lotion and burnt a little across my stomach, arms and back. I decided, after much deliberation to get in the sea which turned out to be a little chilly, ...
... then trying to converse in spanish to Josh, in a creepy whisper in your ear kinda way. I don't think he was actually gay but he definitely succeeded in making the meal a little awkward. After the meal he also continued to fill up shots for bobby to drink, in what seemed like an attempt to get him to sleep. All very odd. Once the bill was paid we headed back and caught some much needed sleep ready for the next ...
... straight after work to stay at a TravelLodge to catch the early flight the next morning (requiring a 3:40am wakeup call) after the stay and a short hop to the terminal we met up with the rest of the family and caught the flight direct into Alicante airport. Once there we waited a while for luggage and met up with other members of the party, Tash's dad's friend Des was already waiting at the airport cafe, joined a ...
... I wanted my backpack organised and to get rid of anything that I realised that I didn´t need (bye bye socks, gloves and cardigan). My backpack still seems too full and heavy after I´ve added some food and water so I may have to either get rid of or post some other non-esentials back. For dinner, we ate practically all the food we had left in the fridge. I had my usual panic about not having enough food and so we went to the supermarket but alas, its closed on ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Helios Benidorm
Whit a gr8 hotel !!!
Me n ma pal stayed et the hotel helios for a week and we thought it wiz offa gid ! everyone wiz really friendly n the waiters were really nice lads ! the entertainer wiz really funny n made us laff most nights !!! GOING BACK NEXT YEAR FOR A FORTNIGHT IN JULY
I booked a single room at the Hotel Helios, very last minute I may add, It could only be described as a "rabbit hutch". £256 for the week, not value for money in my opinion as this was bed and breakfast. My only experience of the Hotel food was the 1st morning when i had to queue to toast some bread only to discover the bred was mouldy!!! The location cannot be disputed and although it was a very small room, the balcony size made up for this. Just beware of the very busy/noisey Jokers Bar, which can go on well into the wee small hours.
Ive just got from benidorm yesterday and thought that i would give my thoughts on the hotel, first point of contact was great,helpfull staff very clean hotel in a great location,i was there with my mam,husband,sister and two kids,and all very pleased to start with. got to our rooms,air cond was hard to work out and instructions on the wall where not very clear to follow,but once it was on worked very well,but didnot work with the patio door open. was unhappy once we went out onto the patio because we had a view of building work which we where not told about before hand so no chance of having a little bit of a lie in as the work started at 8 am. we where full board for the week,and our first meal was our evening meal, very poor quality and service in the resturant,choice was rubbish, not much choice for kids, my two nephews ended up just leaving on chips,and a few times we went we just couldnot face any of the selection that they offered and ended up eating out. If you dont like salad you havenot got much other choiceas it is served twice as day and all of the other potatos and veg had lots of butter glazed over them and i think that spoils the taste, and the selection of meats that their offered where all cheap cuts. The drinks where expensive,you could only buy wine by the bottle, the waitress never took the cash straight away, and even one time we got accused of not paying for our drinks the next day!.
arrived at helios early evening,in baking hot weather. initially very impressed with hotel and seemed excelent value for what we paid.the first problem we encountered was the room was stifling hot.the air con had not been put on and anyway it is almost hopless.it is quite hard to work out how to operate it,and if the balcony door is even ajar it will not work at all.eventually got ready to go down for an evening meal.we had booked room only and the room,which was very nice was only 61 euros per night for a double which we booked direct with the hotel.we paid 7 euros for the buffet style dinner.it wasn't very nice,it was quite cold and bland. there was little choice of hot food and all the salad was covered in some kind of vinegarett dressing and there was only fruit and jelly or icecream for desert.no drinks were included,tea or coffeee is not served and the bottled water is quite expensive.you are not allowed to bring your own water in.
Just returned today from Benidorm, so I will review while still fresh in my mind. Overall an excellent hotel, in a good position at the heart of the entertainment, and around the corner from the Wed/Sunday market.
I've been to Helios in november for the 13th time, and i still like it every time better!! I should say: "go to Helios"!!!!! Nice rooms, good food, nice crew!! and very good entertainment
Good food and service
stayed here, as a family atmosphere, good food and close to the beach better still market just around the corner 5 mins walk know what i mean gals
stayed with my family,kids aged 11 and 9, great clean hotel with very friendly helpful staff, book all trips thru the hotel not your rep, they have great bargins to the water parks and other attractions with 10% off most, its in a great location, in walking distance, or a taxi to all events.taxi right outside the hotel, 4 euros to waterpark and the seal and dolphin shows, 8 euros to tera mitica and theres a market on weds and sundays just at the back of the hotel. theres a life guard at the pool all day.also has a small park for the kids.the beachs and sea are fab, lovely and warm, top end of the beach pretty rocky but if you walk 5 mins to the right hand side of the beach, nothing but sand.food is lovely presented in the hotel with something for the kids everynight.book early and get a pool view thou!! or you could get the air condioning units,BUT the hotel will swap you soon as an availabitly is there if you are unluckly enough to get that room, there very helpful.if you need to know anything else just email me!! ill be back hotel helios!
