We have just returned from a 10 night stay at Ondamar. I have to agree with all previous comments. The place was great. We had a studio apartment which was huge. Very clean and well equipt. Very clean and tidy in all public areas too. The pool area is lovely. A pleasant walk to the strip if you want loud and lively or in the other direction is a more laid back old town. Either are full and bustling with lots of places to eat and drink. A couple of good supermarkets close by. Free wifi in reception. Staff very polite. Highly recommend.

Loved these apartments, plenty room for the 4 of us. Serviced everyday, lovely pool indoor & out plus gym and sauna all free. Located in the middle of strip and old town, 10 min walk to either so quiet at night, plus free shuttle service provided by hotel during the day. Definetly recommend it and would stat again, lovely staff!

Bright clean hotel. Very pleasant pool area. Extremely friendly staff. Apartment was bright with very well equipped kitchen. Plenty of towels and linen. Can walk to old town in 10- 15 mins or a taxi costs less than 5€.

An excellent "no frills" aparthotel! Room was large and spacious and well fitted out. No problems with noise in any part of the hotel. The staff were very friendly, attentive and courteous at all times. All areas were very clean and rooms were provided with clean towels every day.
The location was excellent. No more than 15 mins walk to the beach, The Strip and The Old Town although there were good eating places and bars very close by.
We had a great time - thanks Ondamar!

Room Tip: Try to get as high as you can and with sea view!

I travelled with my partner for 3 nights in the sun without the kids. Lovelly refeshing pool area with bar if required. All big, clean and safe rooms with pool view. This hotel is ideal for couple and familys of all ages. We are fussy but for the price we paid £90 for 3 nights for 2 adults, this is a bargain good hotel, my only negative is that the hotel does not change money? You wont be dissapointed.

Room Tip: all rooms pool view, you cant go wrong

Ok its not 4*. If you want that then pay up the big bucks.
It was perfect for what I paid. (1 bed apartment) clean and tidy, cleaner came round everyday and apartment had a great view over the pool. Its had everything I needed. (Aircon, iron, fridge are the most important)
Loved the pool area and bar. The water was cold (its what you want in summer though right?)
Location was fine, only 10 min walk to main strip and maybe 20 mins to old town but a taxi is less than a fiver to the old town and theirs a rank 2/3 mins away if you dont want to bother reception to ring you one, which they will do no problem!
What it meant for me was you could go to either place, have your fun go back to the hotel and have peaceful nights sleep.
Also theres a free mini bus to one of the beaches and the old town at certain times from the hotel.
I have been told that the food here is poor and the bar (when open) is dead so I never went near them and cant comment.
There is shops and a supermarket 5mins away so we just picked up a few bits and more or less had our breakfasts and dinners out anyway. Theres a few spots near the hotel doing breakfasts for a few euro so just try them.

Room Tip: Go for an apartment rather than studio if the price diff aint that big.

I stayed in the Ondamar apartments this month with my daughters aged 22, 21 and 18. The apartment had everything you would need and was clean, quiet, good pool, towels changed daily and rooms cleaned. The staff at the front desk were extremely friendly and helpful. Within walkin distance to the strip (dont bother going there!) Taxis to the old town (brilliant) very cheap around 4euro. would have no problem recommending. Also great bakery at the top of the street!
