The Helios actually exceeded our expectations. Staff couldn't have been more helpful or friendly, the apartment was smart and extremely spacious by Alpine standards, spotlessly clean and very well appointed. The reception was warm, welcoming, smart and well cared for. There was a pleasant lounge area and a very popular pool table. The pool, hot-tub, spa, sauna, steam arrangement was also high quality though very busy after skiing and a couple of the public showers were too weak to stand under, the water pooled in this area and there was a gate into the pool that slammed quite alarmingly (but I'm splitting hairs here - it was a great set up and a treat to have all this in addition to skiing). The Spar, ESF ski school, restaurant and ski hire were all contained within the building, literally below our apartment and we could ski in and out every day despite being a good 2 runs away from the centre of Flaine. I would recommend Helios to anybody and everybody contemplating a holiday in Flaine. Top notch.
