Great stay for 3 nights rooms were big and clean and good value for money compared to other options in the area. Only real complaint was that the bar staff beside the pool were quite slow!

2/10 Poor

Do not go to this hotel
Do not stay in this hotel under any circumstances. We’d booked a room of 4 with 4 single beds around 6 months before our trip. We turned up and checked into the room and there were 2 singles and the other two “beds” were a leather sofa that didn’t even pull out as a bed and also a mattress on the floor. When I went down to reception to complain, I was told there was nothing they could do. I even opened and found other rooms on there and requested they put two of us in there and they said they couldn’t. Completely un acceptable and ruined our holiday

2/10 Poor

Firstly the beds are really uncomfortable and sleeping was tough enough but add stags parties into the mix having parties on their balconies until 7 am sleep became an added bonus. The complex overall needs some TLC as lots of minor things need fixing, door handles, lights switches and toilets to name but a few. The pool area is nice and clean the gardener does a great job of clearing loose leaves at 8 am every day with his exceptionally loud leaf blower but thats ok because he might wake up the stags party which finished an hour previous. The only dining option open at the time was the poolside bar all other indoor options were closed even though it is May, ordering a drink here became a challenge as they ran out of draft beer and when offered the option of a bottled beer this was taken however, this beer is usually served with lemon or lime inserted but regrettable neither fruit was available. The staff seem to be disinterested in the guests and rarely engage in a meaningful way when approached at the desk. Overall Ondamar although a nice building it needs some care and attention.
