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. 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. From May to 16th October.

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

Excellent family holiday!

We stayed at Hotel Orquidea from 29th sept - 10th Oct, the hotel was excellent, the Thomson team were amazing & work so hard! The food was really good & the kids buffet is a good idea! At lunch there is also a snack bar near the pool side! We have 3 children 7,4,&1 & they all throughly enjoyed the holiday! Having the 3 pools was great & there was usually sun beds still available around the pool, they also have pool towels which was good! There is also shops & resturants just outside of the hotel! We all had a brilliant holiday & would return to Hotel Orquidea! Thanks for 10 fantastic days! Love the Arthur's xMore

Great family holiday

Stayed here for a week (4th-11th October) with my wife and 9month old baby. The hotel is a brilliant choice if you have children with plenty of activities for them to do even the babies had soft play area and baby rooms. The hotel was clean throughout. The food was good all week. There was 3 pools to choose from and plenty of sun loungers never had a problem getting one by the pool. The hotel is a little isolated but taxi/bus is only 5mins drive to the nearest town we walked it one day along the costal path that took about 40mins which has nice views. All in all a very good week.More


Fantastic Family Holiday

We have just come back from a 10 night holiday here. It was me, my husband and my 2 and 3 year boys. The holiday from start to finish was fabulous! The rooms where great they were clean and had everything we needed. The pools where great they are kept very clean and it's nice they have a few pools to choose from. The entertainment was fantastic Lisa Lollipop and Steady Eddie where fab! They did everything from water polo to children's entertainment at night and they were very good at their jobs! The food was fantastic and although a couple people where expressing their Bordem with the food I thought it was absolutely great there was new food every night also it's an added bonus that they have a children's buffet too! The only thing that was a slight disappointment was the fact that the thomson rep we had seemed very rude, uninterested and unhelpful. We approached her on several occasions to find out different things about the island and it felt like she couldn't wait to get rid of us. Highly recommend this hotel with all it's family facilities to any family for a great family holiday!More
