We have just returned from the Ondamar Aparthotel and had a really great time. We stayed in a one bedroom apartment which for two of us was huge. It was well equipped and comfortable, the maid came in every day to change towels etc. Every apartment at the Ondamar overlooks the pool which is pleasant. The pool area is very clean and well maintained surrounded by lovely gardens. There is also a pool bar which also sells snacks throughout the day , however constantly plays the same CD on a loop which by the end of the week is a little annoying. I do have one small gripe regarding the pool area and that is that there are not enough sun loungers. The Ondamar has about 92 apartments/studios and has only approx 100 sun loungers, which means if you don't want to sunbathe on the grass you have to get up when the pool area opens to reserve a sunbed. We never experienced the staff removing our towels as I had read on one review, however as a 4* property I feel that the guests comfort and enjoyment is paramount and having to sunbathe on the floor is not acceptable. Gripe over. We were self catering so never went the restaurant so we are unable to comment on the standard of food.
The Ondamar is very close to the strip but only a 15/20minute walk to the old town which is a fantastic place for families, couples, groups of friends. There is a Spar about 5 minutes away and next to it a really good bakery. The Continente supermarket has everything you could possibly want. Across the road is Big Shanghai Chinese restaurant which is fab, to avoid queues for dining in we ordered a take out one evening which was great.
