Set on the pebble and sandy shores of San Cristobal in Almuñécar, Hotel Helios Costa Tropical is an idyllic setting for a relaxed break. It's three-star, but its dedication to service makes this gem a favourite among Saga travellers. Lounge by the heated outdoor pool or surrender to the spa's rejuvenating Jacuzzi featuring sea views. Whether you crave a mid-morning coffee or live music in the evening, the hotel's bar has you covered. Head to the roof terrace, too, for impressive sunset views. Or step outside and take a walk along the five kilometre flat promenade and find yourself a quaint cafe to people watch. It has a good local bus network too to do some independent exploring.

Holiday location

Helios Tropical Map

Local Area

Almuñécar is a picturesque town with jagged coastlines, intoxicating culture and world-class food and drink. Take a stroll to the town centre, where markets await, brimming with spices, olives, dried fruits, and locally made honey and molasses. If you're looking for photo-worthy views of the Mediterranean, head to Nerja and take in the stunning scenery from the clifftop known as the 'Balcony of Europe'.

Optional excursions

Optional excursions can only be booked in resort and are subject to minimum numbers

Granada City


Nestling below the snow-capped Sierra Nevada mountains, Granada is one of the loveliest cities in Spain. It was the last Moorish city to fall to the Christians, in 1492. This Andalusian city is justly proud of its delightful location and for the richness of its Moorish architecture, which is equal to anything in North Africa. Attractions include the Royal Chapel, where the Catholic Monarchs Ferdinand and Isabella are buried. It adjoins the cathedral built in the early Renaissance style on the site of the former mosque.
