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 it’s a Family Life hotel, which means top kids’ clubs and child-friendly shows.
The bedrooms are getting a stylish new look for summer 2016. And it’s also worth knowing that this property is part of a trio of hotels, sharing facilities with the Family Life Las Pitas and the Family Life Playa Feliz.
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 three to 11-year-olds, our Kids’ Clubs offer two hours of activities, six days a week. We’ve split the Clubs into specific age groups, too, so that all activities are tailored to suit your little ones. And all the sessions have a theme, so there’s lots of fun and games in store. You’ll find nearly all the Kids’ Club sessions are free, with evening activities available at a small charge. For your peace of mind, all of our Kids’ Club staff are trained to UK standards and undergo relevant checks.

Very Clean But, Busy Hotel.
Just returned from a week in a party of 5 adults and a 10 month old baby. Didn't receive a very warm welcome from reception on arrival but, when we saw the view from our room on the 7th floor, we soon forgot that!
The Hotel is very clean and the food was superb, a really great choice to cater for all nationalities. The main buffet restaurant is very busy at meal times, a lot of dodging is required as there seemed to be people everywhere and all appeared to be rushing around! The restaurant staff seemed to be under a lot of pressure which, was probably why they weren't very friendly apart from a couple who managed a smile occasionally.
The pools were busy which were attended by lifeguards but, we did witness a young lad get in difficulty and his Mum had to jump in to assist (she was fully clothed) yet, the male lifeguard who was very close by, was very slow to react.
Make sure you book your free visit to The Tavern By The Sea, the meal and staff were first-class with, the highlight being the Steak in sauce (cooked to perfection).
We struck it lucky with the weather, really hot at times, bright sunshine with cloudless skies although the sunbeds were very dated, there were enough to go round.
All in all, a lovely week in the Sun and, is only a short journey from the Airport. The activity team were funny with the children especially the ones dressed up in costumes who were lead around at different times of the day.
Sadly, on our last day whilst handing in our room card and booking out, the male receptionist was very abrupt and, didn't even ask us if we enjoyed our stay or say that he hoped that we may return one day, this I,m afraid disappointed us, very unprofessional.
Finally, a quick mention to Pepe the barman near the restaurant, he was by far the best member of staff, hopefully, the others will follow his polite, happy personality.More

Do not go to this hotel if you want a peaceful holiday. I've just come back from a weeks stay and to be quite honest I was glad to get home. the hotel was ok apart from the fact that the whole of Norway and Sweden seemed to have moved in for the same week!!! First the good points.............the food was good but not particularly hot, and there was a section in the restaurant that was reserved for adults only, which meant you didn't have to dodge screeming kids all the time. Now the bad points.............the guys behind the reception desk were sullen,blunt,and everything seemed too much trouble. you had to pay 20 euros for a safe for the week but you got 3 euros refunded at the end of it. An all inclusive hotel...............and guess what.............you had to pay to watch the TV in your room (20 euros). the room was reasonable but the bathroom was very tired. Towels and sheets were changed just the once even though temperatures were up in the late 20's. On the second day the maid came in, emptied the waste paper bin, left 2 chocolates and that was it !!!!!!!!! She didn't even clean the cups that we had a morning cup of tea in!!!!! Poolside was a complete nightmare !!!! 50% of the sunloungers were broken (reclining mechanism) and they were strewn all over the place, and everywhere, you were plagued by flies !!!!!! All I wanted was a decent weeks holiday! What I actually got was a week of screeming kids, plagued by flies,very poor maid service and sullen receptionists. The only thing that did stand out was a guy called Pepe who worked his socks off behind the Orquidea bar. He was brilliant. If you haven't got kids, avoid this hotel like the plague.More

Hotel Orquidea Bahia Feliz
Visited here in October 2015, hotel was lovely and so was the food. Didn't know that time of year catered more for Swedish tourists otherwise we would of picked a different hotel as the entertainment was more catered for them. We took our two boys age 3 and 6 and they played in the pool everyday but some days got a bit bored as the entertainment staff spoke mostly in Swedish so they couldn't join in but overall they enjoyed themselves except for one day when a Swedish woman was in the pool and her daughter got splashed so she decided to tell my son off, they were in a pool what does she expect. There is a souvenir shop outside and a few bars and restaurants but you have to pay for these as they are not included in the hotel. The beach isn't much as it's very small and has that grey sharp sand so can't really sit on the beach unless you hire the sunbeds. The restaurant where they served breakfast and dinner was a bit crowded every time and sometimes hard finding a table as you could just walk in as no one was there to make sure too many people wasn't walking in together plus there was just greedy Swedish who used to fill their boots and be so rude.
P.S don't bother visiting yumbo shopping centre, it's rubbish!!!
If there was a star for 'Good' then I would of rated it that but not 'Very Good' as some things need to improveMore

Good but not what I had expected
My family and I stayed at the Hotel Orquidea last month just outside of term time. I cannot truly complain but did feel the hotel was misrepresented in the advert and to be honest, I expected more from a so-called 4 star resort. Coping without wifi for a week is manageable but to have to pay extra for tv channels on an all inclusive hotel was a surprise. Shame we didn't get to use the spa but again had to pay extra. I found hotel staff very pleasant but I have to agree with previous comments that one of the reps simply couldn't be bothered and it was very obvious. It didn't fill us with confidence and we only saw them twice in the week. Happy with holiday but wouldn't return there. SorryMore
