Star Rating: 4 star

TripAdvisor Traveller Rating

Hotel Riu Helios Bay details

This smart-looking hotel scores a double coup – it sits on the beach and has a great pool scene, too.

With whitewashed walls, arched balconies and a terracotta roof, this place is classically good-looking. What’s more, it stretches out alongside a sandy beach, so it’s ideal in terms of location.

Sandwiched between the hotel and the beach, you’ll find the pool. It’s shaped like a number eight, and is fringed by a wide sun deck. Overlooking the scene, there’s a bar which does a good range of lunchtime snacks – think hotdogs, pasta and pizza.

For more in the way of food, the main hub is an international buffet with on-the-spot cooking stations. There’s also a restaurant serving a Bulgarian-themed menu - a top choice for your main is the lamb. And for after-dinner drinks, you’ve got a choice of the lobby or lounge bar – both have chairs spilling out on to terraces looking out at sea.

In terms of the accommodation itself, rooms are bright and smart-looking. Plush carpets and chunky mahogany furniture stand out against cream walls. In-room comforts come courtesy of air-conditioning, satellite TVs, and mini-fridges, while glass doors open on to large balconies. If you opt for an upgrade, you’ll get a sea view, too.

As for where you’ll find it, the hotel is less than a five-minute walk from the pretty town of Obzor.
