I stayed at the Ondamar Hotel 1st Oct to 8th Oct 2013. I wish to state that I have been to Albufeira twice a year for the past five years. My wife and I both like the place and the people. Each time I have stayed at fabulous hotels which were light years ahead of the Ondamar Hotel in every department.
I stayed in a Studio with my wife it was dated but it was cleaned everyday. Not a Problem.
The Problem was the constant nauseating smell of Sewage and the total lack of Hygiene of the Swimming Pool. I normally go to the beach, but the odd day I might stay by the pool, but not here.
Every Morning you would see clusters of Seagulls and other such birds bathing and dropping there faeces into the swimming pool and surrounding areas. They would remind you of Crop-duster Planes as they dropped their faeces while they flew from and over the Pool area.
Most 4 Star Hotels have these almost invisible thin lines hovering over the pool area to keep the bigger birds at bay, but not at the Ondamar Hotel for some reason.
By the end of the week the water in the pool was cloudy not clear as it should have been.
Not once did I see the pool being Cleaned. It was Disgusting!
I cannot believe people swam in that pool during this period, I just hope they are all OK.
Needless to say I will not be retuning to the Ondamar Hotel.
