“Excellent Holiday”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

We have just retruned from another excellent holiday at this hotel. The hotel is clean and the staff are very friendly and helpful. The hotel pool and pool bar are great, lovely food and reasonably priced drinks, with a cocktail of the day. The hotel is in a good location as it is near to the strip and the old town.

Excellent value for money, cant wait to return.

Room Tip: Room on the higher floor have plenty of sun

Went with friends as we went on a football tour from the UK so there was about 15 of us staying at the hotel. The facilities are good, they have a swimming pool, gym and a games room, and it's in a good location.

When we stayed it was very quiet and easy to get sleep. It is not your typical hotel, more of an apartment/hotel. The rooms are of a decent size and you get a small kitchen area which is really useful.

Overall, really recommended.

this hotel was very disapointing with dated and broken furniture in both reception and the rooms, double bed was a pull down bed from a wardrobe, fountains not working at reception couches that have seen a better day all in all the place looks like there is no money to be invested in it and has gotton very warn which is disapointing as it has potential to be good with a great location and friendly staff, but would not recommend based on above

Room Tip: would ask for a room on top floor as we were woken every morning to the noise of people walking abou...

We stayed in room 020 & the air con noise from the hotel across the road was quite intrusive. We tried to get our room changed but the staff told us they did not have any rooms available unless we upgraded for €15 per night! The pool was NOT cleaned but did seem to have a large colony of local birds bathing on a regular basis. Also, the local youths were using the rear car park as a boxing ring from about 5 am onward.When I rang reception to call the police, a disinterested voice said that he had rang the police, but no police arrived, I think they just don't bother because it close to end of season. The rooms were cleaned regularly & were OK, the beds were of the "pull down" type & small, but were OK. All in all, I wouldn't be in a hurry back unless it was a really good bargain.

Room Tip: Stay away from the rear of Hotel.

Stayed here on a belated honeymoon at the end of last year and wow..... It was worth the money. The entrance was clean and spacious, and bright. All staff were very friendly and helpful.
The room we had was a 1 bed and it was pool facing with balcony, clean and had everything you need and more for a self catering holiday. Our room had air conditioning which was very welcoming due to the sticky evenings and blackout curtains that really worked to the point you couldn't even see your hand in front of your nose! Awesome nights sleep....
We had a breakfast in the hotel each morning at a cost of approx €8each which included anything and as much as you wanted. Very nice.
Outdoor pool was lovely, lots of sun loungers around the pool and a nice little poolside cafe which was ideal for those cold drinks by the the pool. These is also a baby and toddler pool next to the main pool for the little ones too.
Free internet connection via WiFi for guests but the best place to get the signal is in the lobby so you may be sitting with people from all over the world skyping each other.
It is only about a 20 min walk into the old town, and about the same to the strip.

Love it, will return soon... x

Just come back from a great holiday and stayed at Ondamar...the location is great for the strip and the old town. The hotel itself is clean, with apartments cleaned every day, new towels etc. The staff are excellent, very helpful and friendly. The pool area was ideal for my 8 year old. Spacious pool, clean, and a nice setting to spend part of your day. Poolside bar was great, with variety of snacks and drinks. Things to do; swimming with dolphins at Zoomarine. My young one did this and will never forget it!!! We went on a speed boat out to sea with a firm called Dolphin Driven. They are based at the marina a mile and a half away. It's a must, as dolphins literally race at the side of you which is fantastic. Then you go to shore and go into the caves which is also great. The best beach nearby is Gale beach if you like water sports. Jet skis, paragliding, banana thing, what's it called, are all there. Lastly, we never got to this beach but saw it on the Dolphin trip. The locals call it Paradise Beach. It's not too far away from albufeira, but it looked fantastic. A small beach area set in a cove with not many people on it, with a small bar set in the rocks. Cheers Andy Jones, Leeds, West Yorkshire.
