Recent guest reviews

We stayed here for 7 nights while having our family holiday. This is a newer hotel, sparkling clean. Every staff member, from front desk to housekeeping was warm, friendly, professional and helpful. Our room was more than ample. Very comfortable beds, big balcony with extra chair and table, roomy fridge, microwave, modern bathroom. The hotel is set off from the beach, practically in the middle of the touristic area and is close to shopping, supermarkets, and restaurants. The breakfast was great and well prepared. Plenty of cookies, fruits, coffee, etc. available. ! Friendly atmosphere made our stay very enjoyable. We loved our stay here and look forward to returning one day! It is the BEST place to stay in the area! THANK YOU

We didn't stay at this hotel but came to the bar for their fabulous cocktails! The music was great, the bar itself is lovely with comfy seating areas and the service was spot on. We had the same waiter each night (sorry can't remember his name!) and he knew what we liked and made suggestions if something we wanted wasn't available (they ran out of prosecco one night so I couldn't have my sparkling cosmo!). So friendly, would definitely recommend!

This is our second holiday staying at the Axos hotel. Just gets better and better, believe me you will not regret staying here. The owners go out there way to make sure you and your family REALLY enjoy yourselves. Big advice try the breakfast... Wow what a selection.. You will not be disappointed. The location is really perfect you are spoilt for choice for meals out, supermarkets and the beach is only a 10 minute walk. If you're looking for a hotel stay here... Axos.

We travelled as 2 couples on the 24th of September flying with Ryanair. The flight was on time and comfortable. The hotel Axos is located on the main road through the town but was never busy and easy to cross. The hotel is a low rise building on 2 floors with a lift to the upper floor. The rooms were a nice size and well equipped with a microwave ,toaster and coffee maker, with nice beds and tv showing mainly greek channels. The rooms are cleaned and towels changed often. Outside is a small pool with enough sunbeds as we never saw many people there ,maybe due to the time of year or thr proximity of the beach just a five minute walk from the hotel. The staff were very helpful and always on hand to help and give advice on buses ect. I would have no hesitation in recommending the hotel and I am sure I will be going back in a couple of years.

This review is for the Axos Bar NOT the hotel so please bear that in mind. We tried the bar on our first night as the music was good and varied and to our taste and the setting was quite chilled. In fact we enjoyed it that we visited most nights and as mentioned the two brothers that run it are very welcoming, always with a smile etc. The drinks are reasonably priced and don't scrimp on the measures. All in all a nice place to visit.

Lovely hotel, on main street but we had a quiet room at the rear of the building. Room was clean and of a good standard. The pool area was kept well and plenty of sun beds. The bar was good and you always got a friendly welcome. We didn't eat at the hotel as we only booked the room. The only two problems I had were : No wifi in the rooms, although it was in public areas. The toilet seat was very flimsy and could not be fixed into place properly. Every time it was used, the whole seat moved. These really are minor things and I would recommend this hotel to anyone. All staff were all was friendly and helpful. All in all another great hotel in Crete!

We stayed for two nights. We knew before that we won't have wifi in our room. But even in the public places and especially at the bar there were really bad wifi. Although they announced that there will be wifi in these spots. The breakfast was ok but not that good. I wouldn't recommend it.

Great location just a short walk away from a beautiful beach. Staff were amazing - so friendly and helpful, we were made to feel really at home. Rooms were clean and breakfast was impressive. Great bar too with delicious cocktails! Definitely recommend it!

A brilliant bar run by two brothers yannis and manos .always ready to have a good laugh ,their cocktails are the best.helped out by siffis ,a great addition to the bar . all types of music played ,and plenty of international beers bottled .called most nights.

Lovely laid out hotel, very clean, staff very helpful & friendly. Location fabulous just over a small road your met with a very clean beach. As well as friendly hotel staff, virtually all the staff in surrounding shops and restaurants were very accommodating and friendly
