A welcoming little jewel of a hotel brilliantly located for the best of holidays.


The Axos is an attractive apartment hotel located in the heart of Platanias, a popular seaside village bustling with shops, restaurants and bars. Everything on your holiday wish list is ticked; just 100 metres away is a lovely sandy beach and a short bus ride finds the historic town of Rethymno where an abundance of sightseeing attractions are to be found.

The apartments are spacious, modern and comfortable, fully equipped with everything to make you feel at home. A big buffet breakfast is served in the bright restaurant that has a touch of old fashioned glamour about it. A special Cretan section offers traditional specialities sourced locally, which the owners proudly proffer as the healthy option and, during the day, salads and snacks are on offer. There is even an on-site ice cream shop. Candelabra chandeliers illuminate diners when the light through the arched windows fades. Then it's time to adjourn to the cosy and inviting bar with its low, cushioned chairs and large pots of tropical plants just to sit, chat and reflect on having made a great holiday choice. Theme nights are frequently scheduled in for extra entertainment.

To the rear, apartment balconies overlook a very pretty outdoor swimming pool where loungers and parasols make for the perfect lazy day. There is also a children's pool. 


All rooms have individual air conditioning, satellite TV, direct telephone line, radio, cooker with 2 rings, microwave oven, kitchen kettle, refrigerator, toaster, coffee maker, private bathroom with bath tub with shower over, hair dryer and a balcony or terrace.
