When we go to PE there is no other option for us than to stay in the Paxton Hotel. Every time we stay there we are greeted warmly, the staff is absolutely amazing, the food is excellent and the rooms are clean, trendy and feels like home.

Beach front facing rooms, gorgeous breakfasts and a staff full of recommendations and good ideas, thank you to the whole team for a wonderful experience. A special thank you to Tracy (if I'm not mistaken) who checked us in, so friendly and helpful. What an assessment to the hotel.

A welcoming reception in a nice and neat hotel. Our room 3104 was spacious, well furnished and functional with a neat modern bathroom with bath and a separate shower.
