Arrived at our apartment block we booked and paid for a year ago only to find it in darkness and closed. Axos Hotel took us in and looked after us for the week telling us not to worry and they would sort the billing. They provided us with an apartment for my daughter her partner and our 5 month old grandson and one for me and my wife. Very very nice friendly helpful family run hotel. 110 out of 100 thank you very much.

Just spent 2 weeks and our 3rd year at the Axos Hotel, fab place, great people so so friendly!! Can’t do enough for you so polite and nothing is too much trouble. Room excellent and very clean, towels and bedding changed on a regular basis, bed comfy don’t need anything else. Bar has a great vibe and Yiannis and Joseph kept us entertained with fab music and raki 👍🏼 and with the COVID-19 situation the hotel remained the same as normal apart from it and everything else around closing at 12.00 midnight. This is a great place to stay and we will be returning, can’t thank you all enough for our fabulous holiday - maybe 3 weeks next year ! Angie & Steve

Arrived at the Hotel Axos to be told that due to an error the 2 rooms that we booked was in fact a large family room and would we mind the 3 of us sharing for the night to which we agreed and we were given a credit . The Hotel was clean , well decorated , fairly modern , the breakfast was ample and well presented . The staff at the hotel were very friendly and helpful and had very good English . Apart from the error on the booking i find it hard to find fault at the price .

This family-run B&B is located close to various super markets, restaurant and the beach. However, unfortunately, we felt it was a bit overrated. If you are unlucky and get a room near the reception/breakfast or bar areas the noise levels in the late evening and early morning are unbearable (even with earplugs). Would recommend to make sure not to get any of those rooms with a lot of through traffic. Apart from that we we were a bit disappointed that the usual complementary toiletries (e.g. shampoo and shower gel) were no provided. In addition, it would have been nice for the hotel to provide dishwashing equipment for the otherwise fully equipped kitchen. On the positive side the staff was always very friendly and helpful.
