      Stay in Helia

      We had a good stay in Helia; however, there were some issues...completely plugged sink. Tamas, front desk (new staff member) and chef, Victoria were excellent and friendly. Most staff seem not interested in making your stay pleasant and rather look the other way. Breakfast buffet, very limited for vegetarians and absolutely inadequate for vegans. Food is not protected by glass...food safety. I do not come back with my family again. They need to work on customers service big time. Spa is okay. You cannot open the windows in your room, housekeeping is not great and we had to ask for shampoo, coffee and we had a dirty towel (have photos). I did not bother to complain to manager...nothing would happen anyway.

      Stayed 5 nights in Oct 2019
