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. 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.

5* Family Place
Stayed at the Hotel Orquidea last year & we cannot wait to come back.. We travelled with friends.. & our children were 5-6-7! The entertainment made the hotel.. There was something on every minute of everyday but it wasn't pushed in your face.. You could take it or leave it (obviously we took it) ð Food was pleasant, we never struggled to eat! The sangria is delicious but dangerous.. 2 glasses & I was dancing on the dance floor!! Uh oh!! Location isn't the best.. But the hotel has everything you need & the shops just outside are fully stocked with every you need! We did travel out to do some excursions.. Worth a try I say! Didn't quite catch the pool guys name but what a awesome guy.. Got on so well with all the adults & kids but kept such a close eye on everything & everyone!! Iv read some bad reviews on Tripadvisor & all u can say is ignore them.. Not sure where they were holidaying but certainly not same place as us!! Some people have very high standards which will only be met by staying in a Sensatori Hotel! I think il finish as I started the entertainment & staff!! 5*.. Couldn't praise the staff enough! They clearly work hard & out some hours in but constantly have a smile on there faces & still jumping about!! Well done to you guys! My 2 daughters cannot wait to return!! See you soonMore
We have just arrived home after a weeks break at Orquidea. We have two boys aged 5 and 8 who loved every minute of it and were very sad to be coming home. What I loved about the hotel was that because it was a Nordic owed hotel most of the people staying there were Scandinavian who generally have a healthy and fitness related outlook. I loved the free adult fitness program they run throughout the day and free outdoor gym. You have to pay for the Spa gym but at 10 Euros for 4 sessions it was hardly a big dent in the purse, I tried two of the massages in the Spa and both were for 1 hour and worked out around Â£43 which is considerably less than prices in the UK for the same thing. One thing to note is that there is no water fountain in the gym so you d have to bring your own. We all thought that the food was brilliant. I loved that the kids had many healthy choices and options. I have no idea why other people have kept mentioning chips as there was only one section that had this in and it was no where near the children's area. There are MANY healthy options if you look, we mostly ate lots of salads with fresh meat/fish of the day. I loved that they always had a fruit dessert option too. The staff worked extremely hard and were always enthusiastic, friendly and keen to get feedback. No one worked harder than the entertainment staff, our youngest son was fascinated by the shows every time and you could tell that they were well rehearsed and choreographed. They always stayed after the show to speak to the guests and get feedback. The rooms were a little tired looking but this did not affect our stay in any way. The only thing that we could thing of was that the weather seemed to be affected by the large hill situated just in land from the resort, so we did get quite a lot of cloud cover. We went to Aqualand which we bought through Becky our Thomson rep. 89 Euro's for 4 of us. Place was extremely quiet but lots of lifeguards and water slides to go on. Overall an excellent week away and well worth it.More

having booked this before reading the reviews I was a bit worried that I had made a mistake I need not have worried this place is fantastic the hotel is lovely and clean the staff are hard working and friendly pepe the barman is a star the food was excellent and trust me im a fussy eater breakfast and evening meal is served in the main restaurant while lunch is in a smaller restaurant the snacks by the pool wernt up to much never waited longer than five minutes for a drink and that was only because the barman had to change a barrel obviously a lot of kids in this hotel but there was a bar that was quiet and almost kid free also an adults only eating area in the main restaurant that was also quiet there were always plenty of free sunbeds around the pool the surrounding area was nice and quiet good walk around the seafront about twenty shops a couple of restaraunts and a couple of bars bus,s and taxi,s aplenty at the top of the road I would gladly go back to this place anytimeMore
Hotel was clean and well run, food was ok too, this is a family hotel, therefore lots of children, not really for couples, no entertainment, no strip to walk along, not many shops, not many outside restaurants, beach is stones. nearest resort is Maspalomas 30 min bus ride away, wasnt for us, wont be back, was quite expensive holiday.More
Me, my husband and daughters came here to get a great experience and we left with an amazing one. The staff and quests were welcoming and my 9 year old says it was the best hotel resort she had stayed in.More
