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.
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.

And outside of peak season, there are parent and toddler sessions 3 days a week, too. For your peace of mind, all Thomson Kids’ Club staff have advance DBS checks and hold NVQ Level 2 childcare qualifications. They’re First Aid trained, and there’ll be at least 2 of them on duty at all times.

Thompson staff fantastic, hotel staff not the best
I returned home two days ago. The hotel is fantastic for children, two parks, three swimming pools, thompson entertainment great for my two year old. Such a shame the same cannot be said for the hotel staff. Waiters unbelievably rude in buffet. When asking for a high chair I was told to 'get one off another table' when asked if a table could be cleared the look on their faces, just a general feeling that they're doing you a favour by doing their job! It's sad because the food was fantastic ( we did only stay for a week, towards the end did feel a little repetitive) hotel facilities were great, clean and tidy. Unfortunately wouldn't return.More
Ben beazley and family
This is buy far one of the best holiday resorts I have stayed in. The food was amazing and the hotel was very clean. Steady Eddie and his gang of performers really made the holiday complete, with excellent ability to make you feel welcome and make sure that your never left out or unsure what is going on.Big daddy is also sure to bring a smile to your face with his cheeky banter.More
I came to Gran Canaria with my husband and two daughters (9 and 15) and also our close family friends from Milton Keynes and their two sons (11 and 15). The trip was the best one that my family and our friends have ever experienced. The staff are welcoming, there is a large range of activities, the hotel rooms are a decent size, and the food is delicious. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Gran Canaria, including you reading this. There is a large selection of activities for all sorts of families, small or big. Also, if you would like some alone time perhaps with a friend, boyfriend/girlfriend or husband/wife then there is a delightful spa to visit.More

Great First Holiday Abroad!!
This had to be the BEST holiday abroad that I have been on! I have visited Tenerife twice and Lanzarote plus this hotel in Gran Canaria and this was the best! It was my first time abroad and it was a holiday to remember! I would describe Hotel Orquidia as a luxury hotel! There was so much to do in the complex and it was situated on the beach which was GREAT! There was a nice path leading from the pool to the beach which was a lovely walk! The complex is MASSIVE! Our hotel room overlooked the pool which was good. There was great entertainment! The staff were lovely. There would ALWAYS be something going on whether it was around the poolside, day trips out, and children activities. When choosing a hotel you want great entertainment for children and adults and this is what Orquidia provides! The rooms were luxurious! For us there was the master bedroom separate and once walking through to living room area there was another master bed (not pull out) with a few stairs going to the kitchen and the balcony! The food was amazing!! We went All Inclusive and it literally was worth it! There was ALL INCLUSIVE carte dor ice cream, slush puppies, snacks all the way throughout the day! The provisions that you would normally have to pay for in an ALL INCLUSIVE hotel were already all inclusive and you didn't have to pay. The holiday was quite pricey so I would advise to go out of term time (if with children) and not in summer holidays as they are the most expensive however we payed quite a lot but it was so WORTH it!! I would LOVE too visit here again!! Around the complex there are so many pretty restaurants with fairy lights! Visiting this hotel is like a dream! I still don't think that I am going to visit a BETTER hotel than this! There is so much to do in the complex and outside! My mum doesn't normally like swimming in hotels because its not normally deep enough for adults like her however there was an adults pool. At night the hotel looked beautiful! It is such a BIG complex its unbelievable! VISIT this hotel if you can because you really wont regret it!! Words cant describe how AMAZING it is!! ONE thing to be careful about is walking bare footed as it BURNS!! Its ALWAYS so hot!! Also wear lots of sun lotion as I normally don't burn or hardly tan but I was badly burnt here therefore I had to go buy some Aloe Vera from the shop in the complex!More
Good First Family Holiday Abroad
After reading all recent reviews I was a little worried about how it would be but after arriving my mind was at rest. Stylish Hotel, catered more for Scandinavian families when we went during the first week but they began the change over at the end of our first week which was slightly disruptive but couldn't be helped. Beginning of second week one pool was closed for work which wasn't too bad as there wasn't many people at the hotel due to the fact it was changing for the brit holiday season and you had another to use. Food Was good, good choice etc. Entertainment was good the first week we were there but second week the team changed and were no where near as good and couldn't sing aswell. I will say take ear plugs if wanting to go to bed before 10.30 as entertainment is very very loud! and no rooms escape it. We were on the 10th floor and it was like we were downstairs next door to it. Apart from the minor works overall it was a good first family holiday. Think if we went back we would go second week in may when the brit season has started.More
