I spontaneously booked this hotel after my initial plans fell through, and I couldn't be happier with how it turned out. The pool was fantastic, and the room was spacious and comfortable. A huge shoutout to Alvaro for helping me organize excursions and providing excellent local recommendations, and to Carmen for making me feel so welcome throughout my stay!I love the hotel's claim - "We are Heterofriendly" - but I would love to see more diversity in their marketing campaigns. The visuals predominantly feature white, six-pack guys, which doesn't accurately represent the diverse guests at the hotel. Including a wider range of people in their marketing materials would make individuals like myself feel more included and encourage us to book with confidence.Overall, I had a fantastic experience and would love to return, perhaps to explore other cities like Barcelona!

Not as well maintained as the other Axel hotels. The pool and lounge/outdoor bar area are fantastic though. And it's literally just across the road to the Yumbo Centre and all the enchantments it has to offer 😜Plus, the staff are cute.The door handle signs sums it all up best 😁

Overrated, expensive and low quality standards. The rooms are large but very old fashioned and the windows/doors are windy. There is also a lot of noise & an uncomfortable bed. The staff is quite nice and friendly. The pool area is ok but all the lovely double beds in the pictures have an extra charge of €50 per day. You also have to pay for the safe and other standards separately. Overall, one of the most expensive hotels we've ever stayed in, but not worth it. The location is 30 minutes walk from the beach but close to the Yumbo Center.

I stayed in Axel Beach last year. Mostly, I loved it: good location, friendly staff. However, when I left, I settled my bill (of course). Two days later, a charge appeared for items I did not use/eat. It took some time to sort this out, I'm afraid, even though I had, as I've said, settled the bill. It was a great shame. I go to Gran Canaria 3 or 4 times a year. Had it not been for that, I would have been back in Axel Beach every time. Now, nothing would convince me to return. A great pity, because otherwise it was good. Rooms were sizeable, Saturday poolside entertainment was excellent. Advice: DON'T GIVE THEM CREDIT CARD DETAILS when you check in. Double check all bills very carefully, EVEN up to a week after you have left in case they charge you in "human error" too.

Very well located hotel close to the Yumbo so very convenient for a night out and shopping. The hotel has nice facilities including a well equipped gym and a spa area. The staff are very helpful. Compliments to the excellent housekeeping team who were so friendly and helpful during my stay. I would definitely recommend as a chilled out adults only hotel close to all facilities 😜

Been going to GC for 8 years and decided to try Axel. Booked a garden view room. Thought it would be quieter than road side or pool side.Never again. Over priced and over rated. Beware of extra costs.. u even have to pay if you use the washing up liquid.. I requested mini bar etc be removed from room.. no temptation.Constant loud annoying music in pool area during day.No quiet places to relax. Even on balcony u could hear it.Place is quiet at night.Was in room 3 days before it was cleaned. I had to ask at reception. Room was a little tired although bed was comfortable.Could do with more hanging storage space for clothes.People seem to like it here it definitely wasn't for me.Maybe I'm just to old .

For the price and reputation I expected the rooms to be a lot nicer. The flooring and walls looked new but the sinks and shower look dilapidated and haphazard.The stonework around the shower base was covered in fractures where you could see mould setting in. And the kitchen tap was either the wrong kind of tap or was on the wrong way round, or both. But it was very confusing to operate.Very friendly and welcoming staff

Amazing hotel that had everything on offer and some super friendly helpful staff. In particular the reception team were the best, and a personal thank you to Alvaro, Kevin, Pancho, Daniel, Dayana, and Carmen. Our stay was hassle free and so thankful we could still use the pool etc once we had checked out and awaiting our flight home. Will book again and we appreciate our room upgrade so much - thank you!

I’ve been to Gran Can 8 times and stayed in 4 different hotels. Playa Del Sol had always been my go to, but after staying at the Axel it would now be my first choice. ALL of the staff are so friendly and nothing is too. Much trouble. The reception staff greeted you with a smile every time and the housekeeping staff were always so accommodating with times etc. The pool was clean and the bar staff were efficient and friendly. The hotel itself is quiet at night we always felt secure. Can’t recommend it enough as a safe, clean space whoever you are. Checking out this afternoon, but will definitely be back next year.

The hotel is very modern, clean and comfortable. The room we had was spacious and as there were three of us we certainly had enough room. The room was well stocked too if you wanted to cook for yourself. It has a great pool too, and even on the pool party day we still had space to move about. The staff were amazing, they took their time with us and made sure we had all we needed and were really attentive. A special nod to Rayco, Kevin, Cristian, Diana and Carmen for helping us out.

Our stay was going well until non-resident guests in their 20s joined the Sunday 3PM party. The place went from classy to trashy. Rooms need some updates and they need to be generous with toiletries (for two guests, can’t go through the day with just one soap, one shower gel and one shampoo). Besides that, good value for the money. Personnel is attentive.
