Hotel Orquidea  

This family-friendly hotel comes with top entertainment for children and a laid-back pool scene for adults.

This place has got family holidays nailed, thanks to a great pool scene that includes a splash park. And between May and October, it’s a Thomson Family Resort, which means top kids’ clubs and child-friendly shows.

Dining highlights include a seafront tapas bar and a grill that looks like something out of the 1001 Arabian Nights. There’s a good sports line-up here, too, with things like 5-a-side football and tennis.

3 outdoor pools

You've got a choice of 3 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.

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.

Wonderful family holiday

Just returned from a fab week, just wish we could have gone for longer. Short transfer from airport, lovely room, we just had the standard room for four of us, sofa bed and single bed and twin beds for us, it is a two tier room so three steps lead to children's bed and TV etc, didn't bother us but if you have younger children request a different room. All.rooms seem to have pool and.sea views, but the higher you are better view. Swimming pools very clean, and Children's pool was great, kept adults and kids entertained with the cannon!! For the older generation easily accessible pools with a slope and hand rail to get in and out. If you have children, take jelly shoes or socks for the pool as very slippy tiles, probably the only thing I would change in the resort. Food was lovely, kids have there own selection, and adults have a great variety. The entertainment team were outstanding!! Lisa lollypop was my 3yr olds favourite, he loved her! Steady Eddie was my daughters favourite and for myself big daddy had me in stitches, especially when he does aqua fit!! They are back next year so you won't be disappointed!! They work extremely hard, so ty guys. My children didn't go to kids club but we only heard good things, we just couldn't get them out the pool!! Overall a great family holiday, just wanted to stay longer!!More

Nice hotel, loved our stay

We went to the Orquidea in September with my husband and our baby. The transfer was 15 minutes, airport luggage was quick. Entertainment - The staff were friendly at the hotel, the entertainment staff are excellent. There's something for everyone, aqua fit, bingo, quiz, waterpolo, volleyball, pool, darts, lots of daytime entertainment including the kids club. Night entertainment includes magicians, hypnotist, pantomimes, contortionists, don't forget the lyrics etc. The food is good, breakfast includes full English with proper sausages, cereal, pastries, fruit, cake, chips. Pool snacks include chips, hot dogs, pizza, spare ribs, chicken wings, salad, ice cream. Evening food is everything you can think of: salmon, cod, sea bass, pork, lamb, beef, lasagne, pasta, chips, salad, smoked salmon so much choice. Location - there's a small shopping area opposite the hotel with bars and local type shops, a good perfume shop there, perfume is much cheaper there than at home. The hotel is right on the beach although the beach is small. A taxi ride to Playa del Ingles cost €9 and is about 10 minutes away. Hotel- the great thing we found was plenty of sun beds, you could go down anytime of the day and were guaranteed a bed. There's plenty of room around the pool and the pool toilets were clean. Rooms - they were spacious, split on 2 levels with a large flat screen TV which had a few English channels. We really enjoyed our time there and having spoke with a few other people there they had returned time and time again. We would definitely go back to this hotel. More

Great all round hotel - although very kids orientated!

Me and my boyfriend (22 and 23) stayed here for 7 nights at the end of September and had a great stay at the Orquidea. We were unsure reading the negative reviews but some people are very picky! The good assets outweighed the bad in this hotel. :) THE STAFF: Thompson holiday reps were great from start to finish. Had a welcome meeting where we booked our excursions, plenty of info was given. They were always around if we had any problems or queries. We even had a little handwritten card under our door one day that said they hoped we enjoyed our boat trip which we thought was very kind and thoughtful! We even had a checking out meeting where they told us all our transfer details, they made everything very easy and smooth running. The hotel staff were all very friendly and spoke good English, and there is always someone on reception. THE ROOM: Our room on the 7th floor was very clean, had everything we needed and had an amazing sea view. It was cleaned regularly and we thought the beds were very comfy! :) We even had a flat screen TV with a few English channels which was nice .A tiny problem we had, but the only tap in our room was more of a dribble, we asked someone to look at it but they didn't fix is anymore but we just put up with it, it wasn't a major thing just a small annoyance! I would suggest taking your own hairdryer as the one there is a bit rubbish! There are steps in the room as it is over 2 levels, this means corners and a small drop which is perhaps a safety hazard for small children. The balcony doors were metal, which heated up in the sunshine, I burned my hand one day on it as it got so hot! You just have to be careful (with children again). A safe is 20 euros which we thought was quite expensive, but you get 3 euros back. On our last day had to check out of our room at 12 when our coach home was at 11pm! We had to book a 'courtesy room' which we had 30 minutess in. This had other people's towels thrown about the room and a very wet floor, but we were grateful to wash/change for our flight home after the last day at the pool. THE ENTERTAINMENT: We were surprised at how many children there were, seeing as it was late September we booked as we thought they would all be back at school and quieter... but obviously not! This hotel is very child orientated. There are kids activities going on all day and all evening till about 9.30 pm. This was fine for us as we didn't mind the noise/music around the pool area, but if you are a couple looking for quiet this hotel may not be for you! Although we always found a sunbed away from the pool that was quieter. The evening stage entertainment did remind me of Butlins, but if you're happy to get into the spirit it was all good fun! We really enjoyed most nights, including a hyponotist, illusionist, singer, and acrobats. We also enjoyed bingo every night and the lunchtime quiz was fun for all ages. The evening entertainment always quietened down around 11pm. THE POOL: We always found a sunbed, there were always plenty of unused ones even if we came down later in the day. It's all clean and well kept, although some people did take food to the pool area even though you were not allowed to! Lovely 3 pools. THE FOOD: We both thought the food was amazing, such a huge variety for breakfast and dinner, was always something delicious on offer. Don't think we ever ate the same thing twice. Dinner also had a chocolate fountain and things to dip into it which was amazing!! Lunch was nice too, with snack food, hot dogs, burgers, salads and a toastie area. Variety of self service drinks and alcohol were great on all inclusive. Although as the cocktails were ready-mixed, sometimes they were watery, and sometimes they were so strong they were undrinkable! I stuck to wine :) LOCATION: Really quick transfer to the airport, only about 20 mins. The location was quieter than we thought it would be, but there are a few shops and restaurants opposite with a supermarket aswell, it has everything you need and you can easily get a taxi to other places. The hotel was next to the beach which was great to walk down to and have a paddle/walk in the evening. EXCURSIONS: The moonlight cinema was great, just a short bus ride from the hotel and we had a great night here. The supercat boat trip excursion was also great, we also went parasailing. We spent 10am - 3pm on the boat, and had a wonderful lunch on board and it was lovely to sail around the island and see some of the other resorts and cliffs. I would say PLEASE do not be put off by the negative reviews of this hotel, we had a great time and overall the hotel was lovely! Alot of young children but we really couldn't fault this hotel too much.More

Great place to stay☀️

We stayed hear in september for 11 nights and what a great time we had, i looked on trip advisor before going an read lots of negetive reveiws, but i guess some people just like to moan because i cant fault this place. We travelled as a familey of 4 with 2 young children and we loved it, the hotel itself is spotlessly clean all the time, with beautiful well kept grounds, we stayed on the 1st floor overlooking the main bar, it was lovley and NOT to noisy as others said, the reps and childrens entertainers are great, very friendly an easy to talk to, special mention to tash and lisa lollypop ( i dont no where she gets her energy from) theres always something going on for the kids to do and adults if you like joining in. The food is great, lots of choice for all, very good standard for an all inclusive and plenty to go round, alot of recent reveiws said that this location is secluded? Theres not loads around it but theres enough and if you want more playa del ingles is only 10 minuetes in a cab, personally i prefer to be away from the centre with the children. This really is a great place to stay especially if you have kids, ignore the bad reveiws and enjoy your holiday☀️More

Kirleywurly,

Family holiday

We returned from our 2 week family holiday in late August. Food was great, room was clean if a little dated. There were plenty of sunbeds. and things to do for the children (aged 9 and 11). We had a lovely relaxing holiday.More
