Axel Hotels is the first hotel chain in the world aimed at the gay community with an heterofriendly philosophy : all areas are studied, developed and designed by and for gay, but open to everyone. They are above all free and tolerant places, where anyone without prejudice is welcomed, respected and valued.
We don’t want to define AXEL HOTELS as gay, we introduce a new term: Heterofriendly. Axel is designed for the gay audience, but is opened to everyone.
The Axel was discounted at MyGayGetaway for the nights that we stayed - so it offered good value for money - it's also located on Avda de Tirajana so perfect for running around on business. Great for two nights -find a bungalow for a longer stay. -Peter, United Kingdom
“Pretty much perfect get away from the bleak winter months of London.”
Our second stay this year at the lovely Axelbeach. The staff are friendly and incredibly helpful and I must give particular mention to Marie Carmen, the venerable “mother” of the reception team, she goes out of her way to make every guest feel special and seems to be training the youngsters on the team to follow suit. The hotel itself is tastefully decorated, well maintained and perfectly located. Didn’t make use of the pool as the wonderful Maspalomas beach and dunes are only a 10 minute bus ride away, but it appeared to be well maintained and popular with other guests. A fair mix of ages amongst guests, means the atmosphere is relaxed and not as “hyper” as some other places catering for a younger crowd. Book this place, you wont be disappointed. -Tim, United Kingdom
Very friendly team, spacious room, gym, overall good value for money. -James, Spain
“Excellent. Felt at home and loved it. Thanks to the lovely staff who makes the place. Xx”
I loved the hotel. Room was lovely. House keeping very good. Lovely cleaning staff and very understanding as they don’t speak English. But they where just great. Kept the room very clean and fresh towels every day. Bar staff just fabulous and very helpful. Can’t complain about anything. -Martin, United Kingdom
“I felt very comfortable and 'at home' in Axel Beach Maspalomas”
the king/queen size bed was very comfortable and made all the difference compared to single beds which a lot of the self-catering apartments in gran canaria seem to have. The rooms were cleaned everyday and sheets were changed about every other day -Stephen, United Kingdom
“Pleasant Hetro Friendly stay”
This place is rather good quality for what I have since stayed in. The bed is huge, the room size is decent and the complimentary soaps and bathroom bits make it all the better. We stayed street side and the noise never bothered us, plus we caught the evening sun for drinks before our dinner. -Troy, United Kingdom
“Cleaning staff provide an excellent service”
Cleaning staff excellent 5 stars. Room facilities adequate, balcony really nice overlooking the pool. Hotel was very quiet, which was good for me. Maspalomas is a beautiful place and hotel was fine. Really enjoyed my stay, best holiday I have had in years. I made the right decision with choosing Gran Canaria. -Mike, United Kingdom
It is close to the Yumbo center but far from its noise. Gym and swimming pool are clean and nice to use. Staff were friendly and helpfull. We could order food and drink and have them next to the pool which is very nice. Having the pool parties next to our room was a bonus. -Arash, Belgium
