A non-pretentious hotel that delivers. A fine location. The room (seeview) is ok, the breakfast is good, the swimming pool is what you expect it to be, and you are just a few steps from the beach. The only negative is the size of the lifts – as mentioned before. A perfect choice for the summer holidays.

We have just returned after four nights and we were highly delighted with the hotel which provided everything we needed. The only complaint I would have is about the bar staff who tended to go missing for long periods but everything else was excellent. the rooms were clean and everything was in good working order. i would certainly revist this...

Decided on excellent because of the amazing staff who could not have been more pleasant and helpful. Fernando, on the front desk, had a great sense of humour and on several occasions really went out of his way to help with car hire and suggestions of where to go. He arranged for the car to be delivered and collected -... More

I stayed here on a Newmarket Travel Hidden Portugal tour and was very pleasantly surprised at the quality of the hotel. There were a couple of minor problems. As other reviewers have pointed out there are only four small lifts and at busy times you can wait some time - our record was 10 minutes and, as my wife has... More

Very clean and modern and an excellent location. The only down sides were that there are only 4 lifts each only holding 4 people - with 12 floors to cope with there was a bit of queuing at peak times! The staff were friendly - especially in the bar and reception and there is also a small shop selling a... More

I stayed here for 7 nights as part of the Archers/Cosmos coach tour Discover Northern Portugal and the Douro Valley. I was pleasantly surprised at the hotel and its facilities and would return. As a single traveller I often do not have very high expectation of the room I am allocated, even after paying a single room supplement. However, this... More

We have just spent 8 days at this hotel, very modern, very clean and we'll run. The food was excellent with a very good choice of main courses. We were on Newmarket Travels Hidden Portugal which was very well organised, and the tours were brilliant. We would definitely go back. We think some people complain just for the sake of... More

Stayed there from 9th - 16th on a Newmarket Holidays package, and was very comfortable with the hotel... you gets what you pays for! This is a 'conference hotel' so maybe lacks character, but it's recently been refurbished and we were perfectly content with our room and the facilities. Our room and bathroom were squeaky clean. Colour scheme ? Not... More

On the plus side, clean and quiet and right next to beach. On the bad side our room had no balcony or good view, and when we were told we could move to a sea view with balcony for extra 10 euros a night, only with a double bed. Most 4 stars we have stayed in simple moved the beds,... More

We stayed at the Axis from 2nd to 9th June on a package holiday with Newmarket Holidays. The hotel has access to the beach via a back gate and is about 20 minutes walk to the town centre. The hotel was recently refurbished and very clean, but whoever decided on the design and colour for the rooms certainly didn't stay... More
