Very nice hotel on the beachfront, with a beautiful white sandy beach... The bedroom and ensuite bathroom were both very nice... nice bedlinen, the only con for me was a plastic sheet under the flat sheet which kept slipping off. Great shower! Nice towels too.. Great buffet breakfast, best choices I have seen... with both hot & cold options, fruit, cheeses, yoghurts, bacon, eggs, sausages, cakes, pastries, croissants, seeded bread, and great coffee.. Lovely staff too... very helpful, with good english.. I Will be back :)
We had a very good stay in Hotel Axis Ofir.We were welcomed at the reception although we were very early they had a room ready for us. Whole hotel looks very modern .The room was spacious and had a balcony overseeing the beach.Breakfast was very good although every day the same. Only thing my wife didn't like was the light by the mirrors in the room. All the persons who worked were very helpfull and always in for a chat.
This beautiful resort/hotel is very modern with every convenience imaginable. Unfortunately, for those without their own wheels it is about 3km outside of the local town. It is situated on a beautiful beach, has a very large outdoor pool & lots of other activities (including a bowling alley), we didn't even get to sample. Our good sized room was on the third floor and we had views to the ocean. We had a small balcony, a king sized bed, airconditioning (didn't work that well as we were still warm over night), small flat screen TV and free unsecured WiFi (which was not reliable). We even had a small fridge with a freezer section. The bathroom was a good size and the shower had good pressure and heat. We ate dinner & breakfast at the restaurant and were very happy with the buffets and the service provided by our waiter Pedro. Both meals had good food & a good choice. It was a good resort and we would certainly return.
We had a good stay here only a few things could have make it better. At the reception and the waiters they dont really speak english only 1-2 so for me it wasnt that easy to make myself understand. They couldn't give us an iron which would be a basic item in a four star hotel I think. They had some group with bus. The busdrivers started the engine half an hour before the group left. Since our balcony faced the parking area we smelled and heard the buses which were really bad when we wanted to have fresh air or listen to the ocean's sound in the morning or in the evening as well. BUT to tell some positive review since i gave it a 4, the view is awesome from the restaurant to the ocean and the beach, really big, comfortable rooms, waiters are really really kind and friendly. If I come back here I would have a room on the otherside of the hotel.
PROS Check-in and checkout: fast and friendly staff General cleanness: very good in general Shower water temperature: easy to setup and constant Towels in the bathroom: large and nice View from thru window of the bedroom: I had the luck to get a bedroom with sea view, very nice. Tv channels available: several languages, including paid channels for free Room size: Spacious room Breakfast: very decent, hot and cold food Activities: Bowling, swimming pool, children's playground, football field, nice garden and bar CONS Air conditioner in the bedroom: I could not warm up the room, as much as I adjusted the temperature was always cold. Orientation: The orientation end hotel is difficult, especially for the breakfast room located on the 3rd floor. Looks like a maze. DO I WILL RETURN? Can happen
We stayed for two nights while taking day trips to Braga, Guimaraes, Obidos, and Aveiro. It has a beautiful location on the ocean. Our room was newly renovated. The buffet dinner and breakfast include in our stay was very good. We would stay there again if in the area.
The hotel is very nice, directly at the beautiful beach and offers good sport facilities. I had a room to the beach, on the other side of the hotel is a parking space. The room is nice and seemed recently renovated (except the inside of the wardrobe). Breakfast is simple but good with all you need. I didn´t like dinner so much, but maybe I should have been ordering a la carte and spare the buffet.
Big hotel but a little bit old. Rooms were OK. I think they should renovate it and enlarge the food offer specially for lunch taking into account that there aren't many places around. Close to a huge (but very very windy) beach.
Axis Ofir Beach Resort is a wonderful hotel with direct/private beach access. Rooms are large, clean & modern. Beds are comfortable and very roomy. Each room has it's own private balcony - beach glimpses on the north side and pool/garden views on the south side. Kids will love the pool and ping pong table; tennis courts can be used free with a booking. Bike rental* and ten pin bowling is available for a fee. Food can be ordered a la carte or patrons can take advantage of the extensive buffet. Food service is good but sometimes staff took a long time to fulfil special requests (glass of ice, more wine, new jug of milk). Breakfast buffet includes hot & cold options; fruits, cereals, pastries, yoghurts, bacon, eggs, sausage, mushroom, cold meats & cheeses, juice/tea/coffee. Hint=ask for latte/espresso etc made to order! Dinner is a fish and a meat with a variety of hot veg, salad, past, rice, breads & soup. Type of meat, fish & soup change daily but the sides stay the same. Dessert is a buffet which changes daily. Overall, food choices are fresh, tasty, varied but it can get a bit monotonous staying over a week; i recommend having lunch outside of the hotel. There are small cafes across the road which do great coffee and baguettes. The restaurant under the hotel restaurant does fabulous pizza. The little cafe to the East beyond the mini supermarket does awesome espresso for 70 Euro cents! Rooms are cleaned daily. This was essential as we found that our towels did not dry - bathroom gets very moist as there is no exhaust fan. Outside air is moist so towels do not dry completely over balcony either. Mini Mercado located 100m east of hotel. Good for sundry items and groceries. Highly Recommended - you will love this out of the way hotel, it is a great place to unplug and unwind! *I highly recommend hiring the bikes for 4-6 hours and riding into Esposende (3.5km one way). It is a nice little ride over the bridge and a bike path extends to the North. Lots of places to get icecream, coffee & people watch. Check pout the river mouth, maroon lighthouse and follow the bike path all the way to the end. You will find Dunas cafe here - a big screen t.v., best icecream and fabulous coffee - a perfect recipe for parents & kids @ Tour de France time of the year!! Swimming beach a short walk over the dunes from Dunas. **Walk to the river mouth along the beach and then back through the dunes along the boarwalk.
Arrived at the Axis Offir Beach Hotel after a superb weeks cruise down the River Douro with Cruise Europe arranged for us by Shearings both of which were superb.The hotel we found to be above our expectations having had, we were told,an extensive upgrade. We were a little early booking in and the reception desk struggled with English and with the knowledge of if/when the rooms were ready.We were given a room on the 5th floor in the older block, no problem, a cracking room with fridge, safe,a marvelous view over the pool area tennis courts football pitch,beach and sea--, towels regular clean linen and pool area towels.The hotel is a bit of a maze at first and our room being a good walk through the corridors to the dining room [didn't like the hallway carpets !} Food and dining hall very good, no complaints from us. A must to get a room at the rear, overlooking the pool and not a front room which would be very noisey Table Tennis is fun, 10 pin Bowling is an education ! The pool is great getting a sunbed and shade is an early rise. Plenty of good walks and a visit to Esposende across the river,though a long walk is worthwhile Can't understand why the Hotel don't have a poolside bar and service even with plastic glasses I'm sure it be a winner All in all a smashing weeks break
