This beach-side hotel brings the heart of stylish Santa Eulalia to your door.
Location-wise, this hotel ticks a lot of boxes. It’s in a quiet part of cosmopolitan Santa Eulalia on the pedestrianised seafront, just minutes away from shops and restaurants, and steps away from the beach.
The pool and big sun terrace are the highlights here, thanks to their views of the beach. Apartments and studios are simple and comfortable.
Buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Selection of local alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks 11.00-23.00. Coffee and tea 16.00-17.00.
Coffee, tea and pastries 16.00-17.00, snacks 11.00-19.00 and ice-cream for children.
Have just returned from a four night stay at the Orquidea. It is a very clean hotel set in a great
location across the promenade to the beach. The modern room I stayed in was smart and looked
on to the pool and beach. Food was better than some 3 star hotels I have stayed in, but the drinks not so good. Service from the staff on the whole was good. The resort is a gem it has lots
of bars and restaurants and the beach/promenade area spotless and very easy on the eye. Night
life is low key and I would say this resort is perfect for young families, and older people.
I would comeback to the resort but not the hotel.More
Nice hotel, great location, just not ideal if your NOT all inclusive!
Myself and my boyfriend have just returned from a weeks holiday in Santa Eulalia staying in the Orquidea Hotel self catering. The hotel itself is what I expected for a 3 star. The reception area is nice & modern and reception staff are very friendly & helpful. Our apartment was average, we weren't given the option of upgrading but we certainly wouldn't have bothered anyway. We were expecting single beds but even so the bedroom was very small with the 2 beds at either side of the room so we couldn't even push them together. The rest of the apartment was okay, reasonable size and clean, with the maids coming in every day apart from Tuesdays. The balcony was very small so we didn't sit out at it much.
The pool area seemed smaller than on the pictures but it was nice & clean & seemed to be enough space for everyone, although I can imagine in high season it would get very busy. We spent every day at the beach so it didn't really bother us. The hotel is right by the beach so it's in an ideal location & within walking distance to some great restaurants, bars & shops.
If you're not staying all inclusive, like us, don't expect to have a lie-in! Every morning without fail the people next door would get up around 8.30am or earlier, I presume this is because they were heading down for breakfast. This is when you realise how thin the apartment walls are! I could hear every conversation, even them turning the tap on & flushing the toilet woke me up! We were glad not to have a sea-view room at this point though, as we could imagine the pool area becoming quite noisy each morning.
We often came back to the pool area around 5pm as it got fairly quiet as people went to get ready for tea or sat by the bar, so it was nice to catch the last bit of sun. However!! The staff seemed very eager to tidy the loungers away, even though the signs said the pool was open until 7pm they tended to start packing away from around 5.30pm onwards. On one occasion my boyfriend had his towel removed & put on a chair as they packed his lounger away a good 20 minutes before the pool was supposedly closed. We started to find this a little annoying! The pool/bar staff were very friendly but there did seem to be too many of them as some had very little to do, often stood chatting or sat by the pool - we even noticed one of them enjoying a crafty spliff!
The evening entertainment seemed poor. Our first night we went back to watch the magician but it was horrendous! Safe to say we didn't watch anything else & going by the other comments on here it seems good that we didn't! They didn't offer much choice either, as 3 nights in a row the entertainment was Killer Pool, although my boyfriend put his name down for one night but it was cancelled as he had no one else to play against!
We didn't try the hotel food but we had drinks there the night of the magician but found them more expensive than other bars so didn't drink there again. Santa Eulalia itself is a lovely place, you can walk up and down the promenade & find plenty of nice places to eat & drink. The marina was lovely also, as was the town centre were you could enjoy some food & drink by the water fountains & listen to live music.
All in all, even with the negatives, I would recommend staying here as, for the price, it was what we expected. Although I could see that, in peak season, it could get overcrowded. It's obviously ideal if you're all inclusive (although even the 'all inclusive' seemed to not include everything!) and if you plan to just use the hotel as a base like we did then it's okay, just don't expect to sleep in!More

Just finishing an excellent week at the Orquidea in a studio apartment which has been very comfortable and extremely clean. We went s/c as we were here for a family wedding so wouldn't have made the most of it, but would consider another time. Room facilities were okay for breakfast and a snack lunch so ideal for us. The beds are comfy, shower excellent as is the aircon. We had a lovely terrace balcony overlooking the pool and sea which was unexpected.
Staff were also excellent and nothing was too much trouble. We had a problem with the lock on our patio door and it was fixed immediately. The location is brilliant being a stones throw from the beach and the hotel pool is good with plenty of sunbeds available. The promenade outside the hotel leads to an array of restaurants, shops and a local market - it is a lovely area and everything seemed to be close by.
The only negative we can honesty think of is the charging for wifi which cost $20 for the week - although not that expensive, it seems petty to charge for something that doesn't cost the hotel anything. On the positive though there was a car park which was free!
Would definitely recommend and plan to come back again in the future.More

Good clean hotel on the beach.Stayed B+B for 12 nights beginning of Sept. and really can't say anything negative about the Hotel. Breakfast very good with plenty of choice and pretty decent coffee juice a bit dodgy but stuck to tomato juice after second day. Room was kept very clean with fresh towels every day (just don't hang them up or girls think they're OK) first class a/c which was needed at night .. Very close to everything really, short walk to town square,shops and Marina.We stayed in a premium studio but because I had contacted the hotel in advance didn't get a chance to compare with standard room, I'm not sure that contacting them is right thing to do since it meant I felt I didn't really have any bargaining power since they had kept premium studio for us. Bar prices are pretty steep but Santa Eularia is getting pricey anyway. A good enjoyable break in a nice hotel in a lovely resort would return in the future..More
