We stayed in September in a 1 bed apartment. The room was clean and spacious, all rooms have a pool view. The pool is excellent with plenty of sunbeds. We had a problem with the air conditioning in our room which was resolved after 3 days by a portable and noisy unit but it did the job. I wouldn't let this put us off staying here again as the location is good being halfway between the old town and the strip. We did not eat here as the choices nearby are good. The bar is ok again with good views over the pool but was very quiet when we were there and had no atmosphere. We would stay here again, staff friendly and the place is very clean.

Booked this hotel for a little holiday for me and three of my friends. Wasn't expecting much since we got such a bargain (€250 for 7 nights for the four of us) It definitly exceeded our expectations. The apartment was spotlessly clean........ it was cleaned daily, and the towels were changed. I've stayed in more expensive apartments and the apartment would only be cleaned every second day.The beds were probably the best I've slept on holidays.

The pool area was very clean, and the gardens were very well maintained. They have a lovely indoor pool and jacuzzi (along with a small gym...if you are into that kind of thing on holiday) The staff at reception, the cleaning staff and the bar staff were all very helpful. The hotel is in a perfect location, half way between old town and the strip. There is a Spar mini market a short walk from the apartment for all your essentials. The only downfall was the restaurant, we did not eat here because the menu was so bad.

But I would definitly reccommend this place to all of my friends!!

This is my second visit to this hotel. I had an excellent four days with 5 others girls. Extremely quiet and staff were very helpful and friendly.

Rooms were clean and up to scratch.

Excellent 4 days. The pool snack bar had a good selection. Because it was a quiet time of year there was only one staff on on one day but the barman held it together very well. He was very helpful also.

I would highly recommend this hotel again and again.

We stayed here in May/June 2013, and we were very sorry we did, this is most certainly not 4 star accommodation We paid over 1000.00 euro for half board only to be told you are only allowed 15.00 per meal and must pay extra for anything over. What, a so called 4 star hotel is doing with frozen chips and 10 cent burger's in it's kitchen i don't know.the food was by far, the worst I have every been presented with. i would not recommend this hotel to anyone.They are not very customer friendly and not interested in any compliant you might have.

We recently stayed here for 3nights a group of 9girls for a hen weekend.
So happy we picked the ondamar we had booked a one bed and two bed but where upgraded on arrival to two ,two beds which was fantastic!
Yes the hotel hasn't got much athmosphere but it's clean spacious lovely to look at and is in a great location to discover all the athmosphere of albuifera.

The two beds are huge with two bathrooms and 2 balconies.
The kitchen is one of the best I've come across as an ex travel agent fully equipped with even a dishwasher.

Apartments are spotless.
Cleaned every day with new towels and beds changed.
I found the beds very comfortable.

Pool area was really lovely and relaxing and the pool was great.
The beds at the pool are fine if you can get a blue mattress do if you can't you'll be grand.

Fantastic location near old and new town.
Few small eateries around the hotel and a beautiful bakery just past spar.
(Take a right when you come out of the hotel up the little hill you will see spar on the right)

We didn't eat in the hotel restaurant.
We did use the pool bar chips where lovely cocktails nice a little pricey @ €6 a go but each day a different cocktail is on special at €3.50.

Eat at Wild and co in the new town at the strip beautiful food not the cheapest but worth every cent.

I would definately stay here again and would be happy to recommend it.

We arrived yesterday a bit worried because of some bad reviews. Absolutely great .massive spotless apt. Kitchen is great. Everything u want.The best are the beautiful pool and garden area. That alone is worth the 4* ok the fountain isnt working and there r a few chips in tiles. What do people want. Some reviews said cutlery wad awful. Absolute rubbish. We paid £330 for 12 nts for both of us ( flgts extra) highly reccomended

Much better than expected, clean, good size apartment, pool was spotless, staff were very helpful, and it was no trouble to show me a 2 bed apartment for next time maybe,the park out the back is a slight short cut to the beach, keep to the right of the park, up through the villas to the main road, and then head down, large supermarket is on the roundabout, 5 minutes away- yes it's a bit dated but all it's other features make up for that, great location
