Just had a great week in Povoa de Varzim staying at the Axis Vermar. Large hotel but even so staff at reception, room cleaning, in the restaurant and behind the bar were brilliant. Good food and plenty of choice for every age. Times open very flexible for breakfast and lunch.On the fourth floor which was not a problem with a... More

Pros: - Excellent reception and helpful stuff. - Well equipped room. - Good outdoor pool and garden space. - Quite neighborhood at night. - Just in front of beach. Cons: - No shops around. - No nightlife area inside (just a hotel bar closes around midnight). - Poor quality for spa services.

Everything is made kind of serving the standard congress traveler. It starts at the reception desk where you are guest no. 1.0101xxx, Breakfast is produced with the "online survey input" of guests of probably 191 countries and no one ever uses the swimming pool. It is no longer a Novotel but keeps drawing the same customers.

We had reasonable food , but you had to hunt for it a bit and the only thing really hot was the coffee. The room was cleaned daily and no issues at all in that regard but the room we were allocated faced the car park and like several on the eastern side of the hotel had no balcony. That... More

Axis Vermar Hotel was exactly what we expected. Great room with sea views, restaurant provided excellent food and staff very attentive. Went on tour with Newmarket and Mary Ann our rep was very knowledgeable with lots of history of the area. Excellent trip. Took optional flight from Manchester - very quick and on time both ways.

I agree with the other comments here about the rooms. I had a sea view and the housekeeping staff were excellent. However, this is by no means what we'd class as 4* in the UK. Meal times - particularly in the evening were akin to a scrum. It was not the relaxing dinner experience I'm used to. Some evenings the... More

we spent a week at the Axis Vermar and were most pleased.We had single rooms on the 5th floor(there are 12 floors) with wonderful sea-views.The hotel is well placed with private access to the promenade from the hotel garden. You can as a result get almost immediate access to the beach. The beach spreads for miles both North (towards Spain)... More

Excellant location, excellant housekeeping, reception staff excellant. Resturant food dissapointing. With a just a little tweeking things could be so much better. Breakfast choice very good for a continental breakfast. "Hot" choice a bit sad. Boiled eggs-bacon-frankfurters-and scrambled eggs, the same every day! Not a problem for myself as I do not go to Portugal for a "full English" Evening... More
