I was here in April 2015 with two friends for a weekend and it was lovely. I returned with my daughter for a week in May 2016 and it was not very good. Our apartment required going up stairs and going downstairs to get to the pool. There was a lift but it was very slow and my daughter doesn't like lifts. Water poured continuously into our balcony from the roof, there was a steady stream for almost the entire time. We were ground floor. A massive group of men arrived on a stag, they were d...

Don't usually stay in Apartholtels but have no complaints with this establishment. Cleaners are in every day and the room did what it said on the tin. Only small point I would make was the shower over the bath with a shower curtain in situ which is not to my liking but each to their own. Balcony overlooking the pool area which although busy was kept clean and tidy. Pool bar area was good and served good snacks. Quiet location but not far from the strip and plenty of eating establishments nearby.... Read more

Stayed at the Ondamar with my mother and sisters for 7 nights in June. Apartment itself was spacious and clean and great value for money. Found the reception staff to be quite rude and unhelpful. Pool area totally unsupervised by the staff - not ideal when adults in baby pool with beer bottles!

I recently stayed in the Ondamar with a group of 5 girls for 7 nights at the end of June. We were greeted at reception with the most pleasant staff and shown to our room. We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment on the second floor, with a view of the pool. The room was very spacious and no one felt crammed in. The room also came with 2 bathrooms, including 2 showers, which was extremely handy for 5 girls trying to get ready at night! The cleanliness of the room was amazing, with fresh towels every da...

The hotel itself is in a good location close to shops, supermarket, the strip for nightlife (new town), old town, and about 15-20 min to the beach. Plenty of beaches around too.

Aparthotel in a lovely location between old and new towns. Fabulous pool area with poolside snack bar and spotlessly clean. The rooms are pretty old fashioned and outdated but again spotless. We paid a deposit of â?¬10/towel to rent them and you could get fresh towels when needed, great idea. Our room was near the lift which was pretty noisy at night.

Best hotel I've ever stayed in. Lovely staff who are very pleasant and always looking to help! Apartment was huge and had everything we needed with an amazing balcony and spacious living areas. The strip in the new town is a 10 minute walk and the old town is about the same! They have excellent transfer services however with free shuttle buses to the old town and taxis which arrive instantly.

We had a two bedroom apartment which was lovely and spacious. The room was cleaned every day with fresh towels etc and the kitchen was fully equipped. The pool area was lovely with nice areas all around for kids to kick a ball and you can rent beach towels for a small deposit. I would highly recommend this hotel, it's between the old and new town and there are plenty of supermarkets nearby to pick up supplies.

Myself and my partner stayed here for 10 days in July (Room 0003) I have to say the main reason I have given this a lower rating is because it is definitely not a Four star hotel! The grounds and pool area are beautiful (possibly four star standard) but the hotel and rooms are a little out dated and require some attention. The staff were all really nice and the room tidied daily (my bed was not changed as I spilt a little bit of drink on the end of the sheet and this was there all week) can't sa... Read more

Just spent a really enjoyable 10 days at this hotel with our 7 & 2 year old. Really friendly, helpful staff and spotlessly clean, spacious apartment. One comment I will make is that with a bit of effort in the way of poolside and evening entertainment it really could be a fantastic spot. There is a lovely area behind the pool bar with waterfall and beautiful gardens which would be great lit up at night time with some music and a show for kids but from what we could see it wasn't used at all.
