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.
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.

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.

We stayed here 22nd-29th June, well where can I start what a fantastic holiday I crnt fault it ! I travelled with my partner, 4 yeAr old daughter and 8month old son. Hotel receptionist were really good and helpful could answer any of my questions. Bar team were friendly, the reps Eddie and Sam stood out they were fantastic it always have it there all, and also the other reps were good too. Also big daddy also made u laugh, jumping in the water with his santa outfit on haha you crnt grey bored in this hotel always something going on, Aqua aerobics, water polo, and loads more activities for kids and adults. The pool was really good my kids loved in and the slide too. Weather was fantastic. Good was good managed to get something different everything wasn't the same and was variety was delicious. It's on a little area where u can get busses to excursion really cheap fares too. Our hotel room was right above the entertainment which didn't bother us what's so ever we have a brilliant pool / sea view, Ye the music on till late but we managed to sleep even my children. Overall this holiday was the best family holiday we've been on and will be returning, miss this place already wish we was still there :( xxxMore
Returned to hotel orquidea after two years and reassuringly it's even better than before! Mum, dad and kids aged 8 and 7. Fantastic hotel - we previously stayed on the 9th floor but this time were pleasantly surprised to end up on the 10th floor in a huge suite. Wow! Massive room four times bigger than before with two balconies, 270 degree panoramic views, sitting area with British tv stations,whirlpool bath, seperate bathroom and seperate kids bedroom. Three air conditioning units kept it cool and a dining area with fridge. Rooms are well decorated and cleaned well every day. Reception staff excellent and polite - sorted a problem I reported with the air con controls immediately. Entertainment excellent throughout the day,and excellent food and dining. It's a young family hotel and caters for all nationalities but is predominantly British orientated. Don't come here if your a young couple after a romantic break, young and lively or older couples looking for peace-it's for kids and is designed around their needs entirely from the little platform at reception so they can reach the desk to the self service areas of the restaurant. The entertainment stops before midnight every night and then it's dead quiet, yes the pool area gets busy and you do need to bagsy sunloungers but we have never been without a sitting area. The pools are clean and safe with very observant and attentative lifeguards on duty through the day. The complex is a bit out of the way but cheap enough in a taxi for trips etc with a cheap supermarket over the road. Top tips: ask for a high up room, 9th, 10th or 11th floor as the lifts are easier to get in at busy times and it's a bit quieter with great views. Also take travel mugs for bringing hot drinks back to your room or to the pool sitting areas. Also if your on a late flight home pay the hotel for a late checkout ra If you like taking your kids to a good value , clean, safe hotel that they and you will love this is your place! Going straight to thomsons when I get home to book it again ( for the third time) :) :) :)More
Stayed at this hotel from the 8th june - 22nd June with my mum and son who is 7. The staff were brilliant especially steady eddy and super Sam! The hotel was lovely and clean and so we're the food areas. The food was good but a little repetitive after the first week which was expected. There is a shopping square across the road with some great places to eat and do a bit of shopping. Also a supermarket across the road which was handy. I liked this hotel however I wouldn't go again as people allowed their children to be screaming in the corridors / outside balconys very early in a morning and very late at night. If my son was ever loud at an unreasonable time I would ask him to be quiet as people are sleeping especially if I was outside someone's room! We also had a new born in the room next us which woke me up for the first 3 nights a few times a night but then they must of checked out and a small child in the room above us as my mum got woke early with a child running up and down their room. There are signs in numerous places stating that people can't leave their towels on there sun beds however this happened every day. Then I noticed one morning there was a man not letting people around the pool to tax the sun beds until about 7.50 where people would be queuing to go and get them and I even witnessed one woman even run to get her bed! Crazy!! You can always get a sun bed however if you want one in the sun or in view of the pool easily then you will have to join the rat race. I used to go down around 8.30 and sometimes got a good place and sometimes didn't but their was no way I was going to cue for a sun bed or get up really early for one. The maids change your bedding every 3 days - even if you leave the sign on the door and ask them to change it again they dont. After the kids kennel club at night they do a prize presentation which got really boring to watch so would of been better if they did this every other night or one in 3. They also did bingo every night which we loved! The night time entertainment was good especially the hypnotist! There isn't enough parasols around the pool either and you have no chance of getting one if your not in the front of the que in the morning for the sun beds! The beach is not very good it's very pebbly. The pool was cold until at least 2pm and took me a while to get in though my son was in their all day every day and absolutely loved his whole holiday and said it's his best one yet! I would suggest not to go here if you don't have children as it's haven! WiFi was rubbish. Breakfasts we're great.More

Fabulous for young families
Visited the Orquidea on more than one occasion. The kids clubs have alway proven popular with our children. Entertainment is top notch although entertainment can be quite noisy and busy around pool area so if you are looking for a tranquil hotel I wouldn't say this is the one for you but if you are looking for a fun place to take the kids then this would be ideal. Rooms are spacious. Food is excellent.More

Visited here August 2015 with my son and daughter and due here again 13th July 2015 this time for 2 weeks with an additional 2 members !! Really looking forward to it.. I hope we have good rooms like we did last year.. food was fab. Plenty of choice and the first holiday I came home 10lbs heavier.. A small friendly hotel, clean and dab entertainment day and night. My only gripe was the palm trees.. cut them right back please, I dont come aboard to sunbath in the shade!! And there's far to many for my liking..and there seems to be a fight for sunbeds for the best spot .. see you soonMore
