Excellent facilities, friendly, helpful staff, rooms cleaned daily, would recommend to all families. Two bedroom apartment's very spacious, with two bathrooms. Ideally located between the old and new town with plenty of local shops and restaurants within a 5 minute stroll.

I stayed at the Ondamar for a week in August of this year. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at this 4 star hotel and would definitely return!

The Ondamar boasts a range of facilities for use, including an indoor and outdoor pool, a health centre, a restaurant and a magnificent bar!

The staff were some of the friendliest and most helpful I have ever met, especially the bar and reception staff. By day 2 the bartender knew what myself and 6 companions were all drinking!

The only complaint I could have about this hotel is that they don't do enough to promote their beautiful bar, which was practically empty almost every night. They had a karaoke night on Tuesday and love music on Friday, however I think the love music kept people away from the bar.

All in all, I would highly recommend this hotel! The rooms, toliets and hotel in general were absolutely spotless. If you're looking for a good hotel within walking distance of Old Town, the Ondamar should be your number 1!

This is a good family hotel in a great location, supermarket 10min walk away central to both old town and new town. Happy hr at hotel makes you want to stay putt. The only thing I would have to say wrong is the cost of the wifi surely nowadays you would give it free and its unreliable too. Nothing else other than good to say the maid service was 2nd to none nice and quiet at night time too. We had 4 kids with us they just thought it was great too. The pool was although abit on the cold side was very clean and maintained on a daily basis self catering 2 bedroom rooms were huge. All the staff were very friendly happy to recomend this hotel!!!

Room Tip: 2 bedroom self catering rooms are surprisingly huge!!

Spent ten nights at the Ondamar in July with my family. To say we were disappointed was an understatement. The lobby is bleak with big open spaces with little seating with a very large unsightly water fountain that was not turned on once during our ten days stay.
The rooms are very dated, the beds in the studio are the type that can fold back up into a wardrobe and are about 1;5ft off the floor. Our one was missing lats right across the middle. One thing that is very evident in this hotel is the lack of maintenance and money been invested into it. The decor is old and grubby, the shower door was loosely attached the front door lock didn't lock properly the frige door didn't close and every night we had to unplug it as the noise of it was like a John Deere tractor.
The pool area was ok. There is no lift facility to pool area so therefore I had to wait for husband or depend on others good will to give me a hand lifting baby and buggy down. Not very four stars!! The sun beds are manky and the pool toilet was constantly out of order.
With the location and gardens could really make this place something special but it looks like its a matter of time before it closes for good.
One more thing, that fab Chinese that everyone recommends across the road; avoid. When we sat down at a table of seven just as I was putting baby into high chair a large cockroach scurried across the floor from the kitchen. It was then promptly picked up by the manager and put in his pocket thinking that I didn't see it. We left at that point.

First time to Albuifera and Booked the Ondamar for 9 nights, The Receptionist was very welcoming and pointed out the directions to the Old Town (15- 20 min walk) and the "Strip" (10 mins Walk), the nearest beach is about 15 mins walk.The rooms are nice and quiet most of the time although on Friday nights for some reason there was some noise from revelers going home from the clubs. Apartments cleaned every day by friendly staff. All Apartments seem to have a pool view and our Apartment was quite comfortably cool even with low air con on. The Pool is a nice size with Kiddies pool and reasonably priced Bar for Drinks and Snacks.
They run a shuttle to and from the Old Town at 10 30am, 1 30Pm and 5 30pm which is also useful.
The Bar and Hotel itself couldn't be described as lively but that suits most people as entertainment is not too far away.
Supermarket and shops only 5 min away plenty of eateries (decent Chinese across the road)
TV's could do with a couple more English language Stations and maybe free WIFI in rooms & pool area (available at extra cost, Free WIFI at Reception and Bar)
Would definitely stay here again.
