Staff & service




Property conditions & facilities

5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Little paradise
It was a paradise for us, from the arrival to departure, we didn't wanted to go back home. The staff and management is brilliant. We can say this because we work in hotel industry as well.

5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
The best value for money
Excellent staff, infinity pool, reef (swam with sharks everyday), affordable drinks/room/food/diving, sunsets, everything! GORGEOUS. not at all as luxurious as the big resorts but we didnt want that anyway. Rooms are very basic so if you want the pinterest version (overwater bungalows, jacuzzi in room, flower petals) then this isn't the place.

4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Great resort with beautiful water
Great resort with nice people, great excursions, beautiful water, sharks, crabs and other wildlife that is truly something to admire. The food options aren't much but the food is good, drinks are expensive but if you go on the local island excursion early you can stock up. Would recommend to anyone on a budget that wants an experience of a life time.

2/5 Poor

Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Quiet Resort
The resort to relax, good experience for 15 minute seaplaneby flight, the resort manager himself greeted us and was very nice guest relations. You need to buy everything like bottle of water its cost 5$. The local restaurant staff were average, as was the food. Most people tread the island barefoot

2/5 Poor

Disliked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Not Worth it at ALL
I certainly made a mistake in choosing Helengeli. Paid a handsome price, got a tired worn down room with "bad smell" and an air-conditioner with dark and brown MOLDS on every inch of it. Tried to ask to change room and got punished: We went to ask for changing room at 2 p.m., was told bluntly (showing irritation on the face) to come back at 3 as the man claimed himself not in a position to do it. Went back at 3 and told to come back at 4:30 p.m. Then went back at 4:30 p.m. and was given a key to room which was untouched and not cleaned from previous occupant. Went back to tell them the case and was asked to wait for another hour!!!! My wife got angry and tried to ask for the manager. The Assistant Manager came and started "scolding" us as he said that it was Sunday and the hotel was busy! What on earth is this??? Service???? Was it our fault??? We came to celebrate our wedding anniversary and the whole afternoon was wasted waiting to change room!!! Furthermore, don't be misled by the description of the room - Bungalow, that is too beautiful a description for a room like that - It's just a brick room with dead trees standing in front of the room like a haunted house. What you get is the tired furniture especially the toilet door which any hotel on earth would have dumped it away and above all, the smelly air-conditioner, the giant ants(about an inch long)!!! Actually, the whole vacation was spoilt!!!
