We stayed at the Axis on a Newmarket holiday recently, and although it is a good walk to the centre of town, it is in a great position right next to the lovely beach. We had requested a disabled room and this was provided with a walk in shower which was a great aid to us. The staff were always... More

This hotel is too far out of Porto. Very poor connections to the city.Facilities good and access to the beach easy Food was of a good standard but repetitive. Better organisation needed at the buffet as all groups tend to arrive at the same time. If you were late most good items had already disappeared.Service in the bar was to... More

My wife and I stayed here for one week on a holiday package that included breakfast and evening meals. These were buffet style with plenty of choice. All in all, no major complaints. Minor issues, with eleven floors, the lifts are vital. You may have to queue and wait to get one. Main course mains were not always hot enough.... More

Stayed at this hotel last week on a visit to Portugal and was delighted with everything it offered. Modern rooms with comfortable beds, tea making facilities, temperature control and a gorgeous bathroom. Food was very nice and there was lots to choose from. Very large swimming pool and no shortage of loungers, path leading onto beach. I would certainly recommend... More

The Axis Vermar caters primarily for tour groups and conferences (separate) It therefore is geared to dealing with large numbers and cater for multi-national tastes. Hotel is located about 1 mile north of Povoa in an uninspiring desolate area and feels isolated. The best feature of the hotel and restaurant is the staff who are polite, helpful, friendly and efficient... More
