Apartment cleaned to a high standard daily. Reception staff very helpful and friendly. Good position between old and new town (the strip). Didn't use bar or restaurant but found snack bar... More

Just arrived back from our stay at the Ondamar Hotel and what can I say... It was a lovely hotel, ok it was slightly dated but it didn't bother us. We had a one bedroom apartment which had great views of the pool and gardens. It was very spacious with everything that we needed. We tend to cook in some... More

We have just returned from a two holiday at the Ondamar and what a wonderful holiday it has been. The hotel was incredibly clean throughout and we had daily visits from the cleaners into our rooms, even if we put the 'do not disturb' sign out they would always return later in the day. The self catering facilities were fantastic.... More
