“Truly Family Friendly Resort”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2012

My son, my wife and me had a very hassle free holidaying at Ondas Do Mar.. The rooms were quite spacious, pool was always clean, food was amazing, service was very good.. Its truly a family friendly resort.. The wonderful beach was just 2 minutes walk.. The main market is just around the corner, all famous evening joints are nearby.. Chauffeur driven or Self driven cars & bikes are always available.. And at the top of it all you have to pay is really very reasonable, excellent budget resort.. (Rajen K Sikka)

This was my first stay to goa with my friends. We were 10 guys staying in this hotel. The staff was very helpful, the deluxe rooms were really big and spacious. Mrs Fernandes the reservetion manager was very sweet. The resort is located very close to the beach and bikes and cars can be hired from just outside the resort. All in all it was great staying here for 6 days.

Room Tip: Deluxe rooms on the ground floor in front of the swimming pool are nice and airy. Plus the view ther...

This was my first time travel to Goa and I was with my wife & 4 year old son. I stayed in this hotel from 1-Mar-2012 to 5-Mar-2012. This is an above average hotel. I had booked the Hotel through Yatra.com on 28-Feb-2012 and before booking feedback provided by yatra was good about the hotel. I thought every travel agent talk good of hotel just for booking and before reaching I did not have much expectation about the hotel. It took around 1 hours from Goa airport to reach Ondas do Mar Beach Resort. My luggage was taken by the hotel service boy till the reception. I got the room allocated within 5 minutes. I had booked deluxe room which is pretty large in size. This room had TV, small freeze, AC, double bed with two balconies. Bath room was very clean. Hotel is very close to Calenegut beach. Hotel arranged us for sightseeing for both south and north Goa. You will find many other restaurant near by for food. Overall we enjoyed the 5 days stay at Ondas. The only thing that Ondas resort requires improvement was complimentary breakfast. They don’t have much variety in breakfast. I would recommend my other friend to stay at Ondas.

Room Tip: If you are travelling with Family , choose delux room. In case with your friend, then you can stay i...

We were a pack of six indian bachelors. Overall we had a very unpleasant stay at the resort. Some of the good things are

1) The resort was very near to beach which was a blessing for us since we always wanted to stay outside the resort due to poor treatment.

2) The deluxe rooms were spacious and decent

3) You have a lot of restraunts and beach shacks around

First of all they want the entire money as advance on arrival. This was the first time i had such an experience and food bills has to be paid instantly. Secondly the resort is like a jail for Indians especially for bachelors. There was clear discrimination as far as treatment was concerned with respect to foreigners as well as Indians. They don't allow to relax and drink outside your room after 10 PM. The breakfast closes at 10 AM and even if you are in the middle of your breakfast the restraunt people would start moving the balance food from the counter without taking your permission. The breakfast menu was very limited and you have to order eggs and fresh juice at an extra price. Pool can't be used before 8 PM and after 6 PM. You don't tend to sit in the resort during these hours and funniest thing that i noticed was they don't serve any beverages poolside. This was the first time i had such an experience, usually its great to have a drink at your pool bed. Overall we felt as if we were in a jail having spent close to 30,000 for four days. I do not reccomend this resort for Indian bachelors, for Indian families it is ok if you don't mind restrictions.

Room Tip: the rooms were we stayed were good. 203 was the best with powerful A/c and 201 was also ok.

We spent 6 nights here. The first impression of the hotel was good; the reception is very nice, the area around the pool is wonderful with few sun beds. The restaurant is also nice; the food is average and not expensive. The staff is very friendly, always smiling and very helpful.
The rooms are quite spacious if you book a deluxe room but it’s an old property.
Our room had a couch, a table, some chairs, TV and fridge with attached bathroom. I was amazed after seeing dish wash basin in room. The fridge was great as we could store our drinks there. Air-conditioner was very noisy one. When I saw the bathroom I was quite shocked. It was tidy but shower was not proper, the curtain had stains and discolorations.
We had our rooms pre-booked through Yatra but still the hotel reception took around 15-20 mins to validate the booking. One should specifically ask for rooms facing the pool as the other rooms aren't good. Room service was average here as we had to ask several times for water bottles.
Best thing about this hotel is nearest beach i.e. Calungate, which is at walking distance. You can easily find restaurants, shops, bike rentals, etc. in this area.

Room Tip: Choose Pool Facing Room
