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.

Thomson Kids' Club May - 16 Oct

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.

Great Hotel. Lovely Location

We stayed here for a week in October, 2 adults and 2 children age 9 and 6. It's a very short transfer from the airport 20 mins so you are the first drop off and last pick up. Reception staff were very quick with check in and there was a glass of bubbly waiting. Rooms are smart, modern and very clean and spacious. The views are fantastic looking out onto the palm trees, pools and sea. We had a low floor and the room was very quiet at night no noise from inside the hotel. The all inclusive here is very good. The food choices are extensive so plenty to choose from and different every day. The restuarant is very busy with lots of kids as it's a family hotel but there is a quiet adult only area also. There is also a childrens self serve food area too. Drinks are self serve during meal times. As well as the restuarant for breakfast and dinner you have the choice of another restuarant and a snack area at lunch times. All inclusive drinks also a good selection. We also had an option in our AI package for a visit to the Taverna near the sea for tapas and would encourage anyone who stays to visit the tapas is really good. There are 3 pools which are all ok for children 1 is a kids splash pool but the other 2 are not too deep. Plenty of sunbeds and the pool area kept very clean by the attentive staff. The reception staff here are definately worth a mention as they are very friendly and helpful and nothing is too much trouble. The hotel is situated on the beach. Not a great beach but provides lots of room for those who want beach time rather than pool time. There are also extensive gardened areas full of sunbeds to ensure plenty of space for all visitors. Bahia Feliz is a small quiet resort with a small shopping centre across the road with plenty of shops for gifts etc. The Hotel has a good mix of nationalities with mostly Scandanavian and British guests. The Thomson kids club is very good and my children enjoyed it and wanted to go every day. The staff there were lovely. A real plus for this hotel are the entertainment team of Lisa Lollipop, Steady Eddy and Big Daddy. Never been to a resort before where the entertainment programme is so good and the staff so brilliant !! Thank you to you all for making our holiday great. We don't normally visit the same resort twice but I have to say I would not hesitate to come back here again and would definately recommend this hotel and the Thomson team here. See you again soon!More

Nice but distant

The hotel in OK, good breakfast , a great view to the atlantic... but it is remote. Travelling by bus (bus stops are right in front of the hotel) to a good beach in Maspalomas or to a dinner elsewhere takes a lot of time.More

This hotel is for families who love the Hi de Hi lifestyle im afraid. Its saving grace is the food and the staff. Its advertised as Families and indeed it is but for families with young children who's parents don't mind the awful pool and evening entertainment . Or for the older couples who seem to enjoy drinking excessively and being the centre of attention Rooms - I went with my teenager daughter and her friend they shared the double I had a put you up the most awful 7 nights sleep ever !!. When paying full price I would have and have indeed expected much better and have had !! Equally despite emailing several times and being promised a room with a sea view we got a side room with a view of the bar I complained nicely but to no avail . Pool - Dirty full of Hair never filtered im sure completely packed not refreshing. Pool area far far to small for the hotel - The sunbeds packed side to side if you wish to turn over you will fall onto the next sunbed with a stranger. Very Very few sun shades I had to ask for one - or shall I say beg for one with complete indifference from the manager and the attendant was simply rude and told me to "LOOKIE" !! Why I don't know as there simply wasn't any unless you where lucky to get by the pool OR should I say unlucky as it really is Benidorm Hi de Hi around the pool Sea - There isn't any beach there is many rocks if the tide is out but has to be the worst beach I have ever come across and I travel a lot Area - Poor is all I can say Island - Just not nice really - I like to see blue sea nice beaches little villages. The island is not at all picturesque. Restaurant - Excellent especially for little ones well presented clean and tidy nice staff. I would recommend the 1 free night at the sea view Tapas bar it is very good Entertainment - Great for little ones im sure but just simply awful for everyone else. In your face loud and when not for little ones for adults who believe they are teenagers !! Not a good sight. The Entertainment team entertain you if you join in if not they don't acknowledge you at all. This is a 2 star hotel at must with exception of food and staffMore

Don't go here if you don't like children

This is a fabulous family hotel. I booked in October thinking that the children would be at school, I was wrong! This is Thomsons number one family hotel. There were English and Scandinavian families there. It got worse as the fortnight went on. The English were going home and the Scandinavian's were taking over. We were very quickly outnumbered. Up to Wednesday of the second week it was ok. The Thomson staff were full on. The entertainment team worked so hard. Well done Glyn, Ed, Lisa and Courtney. After that the Nordic team took over and we were ignored. The hotel was spotlessly clean. The food was excellent. There was a wide variety, something for everyone. You could not go hungry. The entertainment was mainly for children, not much for the adults. There is an excellent bus service to various resorts nearby and also Las Palmas, all reasonably priced.More

Booked this hotel as a last minute deal, Travelling as a couple the hotel was ok at the start of the week but filled very quickly with families with numerous children i assume half term is at different times in different countries. Entertainment geared for children with very little for adults, although the juggling act were entertaining what ever your age. The resort of Bahia Feliz has nothing to do in it so make sure you hire a car or are prepared to use the local Globales bus service. Our pool view room was more a sea view room which was better, beware the floors are slippy and the split level could be a problem if you have had too much local spirit, Food was of a good standard and the choice was extensive, Didnt go a bundle on the snack bar -a bit like a canteen. staff on the whole speak English if you have no Spanish. Thomsons team work hard to deal with your questions and issues and are freindly. If you book the 4x4 adventure please be aware you will not go off road if it rains - they are not allowed too - i assume insurance dictates this.More
