3 outdoor pools

You've got a choice of three pool areas here. There's a sporty looking number, ideal for doing some laps to keep in shape. Or just chill out on the spacious sun terraces and take a cooling dip. Pool towels are available.

Splash pool

There really is hours of entertainment for little ones in this fountain and slide filled shallow pool. Even better there are sunbeds you can keep a watchful eye from, plus there's another pool right next to it for older ones and family fun.

Thomson Kids' Club May to 16th October

Designed for 3 to 11 year olds, Thomson Kids’ Club offers 2 hours of activities, 5 or 6 days a week. And that includes at least 3 evenings. It’s split into sections, with Tots for 3 to 5 year olds, Team for 6 to 8s, and Tribe for 9 to 11s. Best of all, most kids’ clubs activities are completely free.

Robbie H,

excellent family friendly hotel

First holiday aboard with toddler & very successful taking an all exclusive week break. We were surprised to see so many Scandinavian families & the although the childrens entertainment was more geared towards the Scandinavians the other children did not feel excluded. The entertainers were multilingual, translating into English & happily chatting to all the guests after their sessions. We had a room on the 2nd floor which was very comfortable however having the room on 2 levels with a toddler was stressful & she had a little tumble so we/had to supervise at all times. My husband repositioned the couch under the wall from the top level in case/she tumbled off it. We didn't spend too long in the room. Food was very good selection & the theme nights were good. As others have said the desserts get a bit samey after a few days but there's loads of fresh fruit & local specialities. The fish was excellent, I had some delicious mussels & salmon. My daughter loved the kids buffet section & she ate a mountain of icecream. Pool areas were nice & clean with daily events such as aqua aerobics which I participated in. There's a rocky beach & a public manmade beach area below the hotel. We ventured down there on occasions to build sandcastles & my husband had a few enjoyable swims in the sea. The mall shop/restaurant complex across the road was very quiet went we ventured over during the day with just a handful of people around. All in all very nice hotel, very nice staff especially the barman who shook our hands as our coach arrived. More geared towards families apparently the entertainment changes in May & its more/geared/towards the English visitors then but I found the scandinivans very polite & friendly for example all the toddlers were sharing their toys in the paddling pool.More

Really wonderful holiday

We have just returned from a week at the hotel Orquidea (second week of March 2015) as a couple celebrating our Wedding anniversary all inclusive. It was a fabulous week and I would go back again but take my grandchildren next time as it is very family oriented. All the staff were friendly and helpful. Food was assorted with specials every day. Everything was clean including communal toilets at the end of the evening. The room was spacious, but we did have trouble getting into the shower/bath because of the shower glass, you had to be a contortionist to get in. Rooms cleaned daily and a quaint shopping and eating area outsided the hotel.More

hotel maternity!

lthis is a good hotel for families, but not for middle aged or above. My wife and i have just returned home after 11 nights here,there were no children or very few from the U K, but there were hundreds from other E U countries. thomson brochure says there is no kids club May-oct, this is true for uk kids, but not for other countries, so middle aged plus be prepared for a lot of small children if you should book this hotel.More

Foods so good that you will need stretchy trousers to go home in. Very relaxing.

Hotel Orquidea Bahia Feliz Part of the Nordhotel group. First impressions were really good the reception staffs are fast and efficient. There are 3 lifts in the hotel all in reception but it seemed to us that there were only 2 ever working, not a problem most of the time but when a large group arrive it can become a long wait to get to your rooms as the lift will only accommodate 2 people with their cases. I mention this as it is the same when you leave and can take up to half an hour to get down to reception to check out, so bare this in mind. Drop and swap books are in reception, a large section for the Scandinavian’s and for the brits a section round the corner by the reps area. Room design is dreadful, they are split level with three steps. A 5 inch high wall is all that separate’s you from the 3 foot drop down to the sofa and chair area. Not in any way child friendly. The steps have no banister or guard rail and are in the same tiles as the rest of the room so if you trip up them you will do yourself some damage. Bathroom I realise is designed for both adults and children which I applaud. Both toilet and sink are slightly lower than average so kids can use with or without the aid of the plastic step that is under the unit. However the shower/bath area is not so good as the door can be either half open out into the room or half in the bath, same with the loo roll holder, it is on the wall behind toilet, making it as awkward twist to reach, rather than on the wall next to the loo, which would have been the obvious place. All little things but they niggle. Being Scandinavian the rooms have quilts on top of slim mattress toppers, which are low down as there is no second mattress. There is a kettle and cups for drinks but no Tea, coffee or milk in the room, all are available to buy in the supermarket across the road. My advice, bring a small jar or a few bags and just buy the milk, save a few euros. It was €18 to open the safe that is in the room. WI-Fi is free and works in rooms. There are 3 big pools but only one was warm enough for us when we went. You definitely will not run out of lounger in this hotel there were so many of them, your only problem during high season may be finding a space big enough to fit them in. The see is rocky and is accessed by steps. The staff were lovely and the restaurant is fabulous, again designed with children very much in mind. There is a large area of big tables catering to large groups and a dedicated food area for the children with a varied and well thought out menu. At the end of the restaurant is an adult’s only area, for couples to relax in. The food is excellent with a varied menu and a fresh carvery area every night. Best restaurant we have been in. lunch is in the outdoor restaurant, also has a big selection of hot and cold food and many puddings. There is also a snack area by the stage with hot dogs and toasties, or salad and cakes . Safe is €37 for 2 weeks. This was our second visit here and although they are cutting back on the freebees like tea coffee/milk and biscuits etc. the hotel still feels nice and relaxed and all the essentials are still there. Easy to get around even in a wheelchair, there are ramps everywhere for kids buggy’s etc. wheelchairs can even get in the pool as there are ramps into those as well. The entertainment team during the day seemed to work non-stop, there was always something going on to keep the little ones happy.More
