Great position for Helmsley Sandcastle
Easy to find, friendly staff, clean room with everything we needed and on a lovely soft sandy beach where the turtles come at night to lay their eggs in the dunes! Hotel looks like a motel in need of some external renovation but it was such a good price for its position that seems irrelevant. Would stay there again.

Un emplacement superbe, au bord de la mer. La piscine est parfaite. Les chambres sont belles et propres. La nourriture est bonne (attentions aux mouettes qui essaient de la piquer votre). Vivement recommandé.

Lovely location
Lovely location, splendid beach and facilities. Rooms were not brand new, but good enough. Children loved the pools. Staff helpful.

We really enjoyed are stay at the Helmsley Sandcas
The hotel was great, it had a really friendly atmosphere and we could walk straight onto the beach. We booked a pool/courtyard view but were lucky enough to be able to see the sea from our room. It was a great surprise considering the great deal we got through skooch. The bedrooms were very clean and large, the bathroom could do with upgrading though. As could the breakfast area. The walk to the circle was about 30 mins which was fine for us, but I'm not sure would suit everyone. The circle is definately worth a visit, there are some fantastic restaurants, our favourite was the Crab and Fin. Overall we had a great time and would recomend this hotel.

We loved staying at the Helmsley Sandcastle!
We were very much pleased with this hotel. It surpassed our expectations. The rooms are nicely decorated and clean. We liked the fact that the heated pools were filled with sea water. The hotel is located on the best part of Lido beach. The staff was friendly and the breakfast was good.

Nice hotel, beautifully located at the beach. Small, enjoyable town. However, not much to do. Carin.

Hotel was OK but we had expected more. In real life it's not what it looks like in pictures. Pool was poor. Good hotel for, like us, staying 1 night travelling to Florida. But according to me not suitable to spend a beach holiday.

We stayed here mid April 2007. Rather simple hotel, a spacious room however. With a splendid view of the sea and the magnificent white beach from the balcony. More suitable for a 1 night stay than for staying several days.

At the beach and very quiet + nice pool. You do need a car because it's a bit remote.
