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.
Nice hotel, the food was good rooms great and 20 paces from the beach. My only complaint was it says all inclusive and it wadent really as you could only have a few cheep shorts and larger. Any cocktails or decent drinks you had to pay for and the inclusive was only between certain hours, we would defenatly go back but half boardMore
Great location of a decent hotel.
My husband and I stayed end of September and had an amazing week. As in previous reviews we did get offered an upgrade at a price but declined. All though our apartment was at the right side and you could see the sea if you looked to your left we were not over looked my anyone, which we would have been if we took the option of pool view. Worth bearing in mind to is pool view also comes with pool noise. Our room was spacious and spotlessly clean, the cleaners came everyday bar Tuesday. Hotel staff were friendly and helpfull. We were self catering and had a basic but well equipped kitchenette. Santa Eulalia it's self is perfect for strolling,an awesome prominade, the beautiful beach is on your doorstep and there are many quality bars and eaterys in the area. Bus travel is very cheap and the bus station is 15 minutes walk away. 1.50â¬ to es canar and the hippy market well worth a visit. We only took in one evenings entertainment, and it was pretty poor, as sadly sound quality affected performance. The one tiny negative is the in the residental apartment opposite our block had chickens, cute during the day but not at 5 in the morning! Would definately recommend this hotel and resort , just beautiful. More
Excellent quality 3* hotel in a great location
Prior to booking a holiday I spent ages trawling through review after review on trip advisor and am happy to say I wasn't disappointed with my choice.
Apartahotel Orquidea is a lovely hotel. First impressions gave an image of a clean, airy, relaxed hotel and that is exactly what it was. The reception staff are friendly and informative. They are willing to help with any requests and make you feel welcome. We originally booked a standard studio room all inclusive. On arrival we were given the option of upgrading to a premier studio for 10â¬ a night. Initially we stayed with the standard room to see what it looked like. It was a clean, neat, compact studio that would be perfectly adequate for a couple but i think you would definitely struggle for space with a 3rd person or even a cot in the room. Definitely if you chose a self catering option. Even though the room was adequate we chose to upgrade as wanted to spoil ourselves a little more. We had a premier room on level four. I believe it is one of the smaller premier rooms but there was lots of space. The premier side is recently renovated and it really shows. Twin beds with pull out sofa bed as needed, which in this room is much more feasible than a standard room. A space saving clothes rail and shelving for clothing, TV that is a little limited on channels but enough for the odd programme (not really on holiday to watch tv!). The bathroom was airy, spacious and clean. The shower was fantastic and always hot water when needed. Small extras such as toothbrushes, shower gel and soap were an added bonus. There is also a hair dryer in the bathroom. The towels were changed every other day and bed linen twice a week. The balcony was a little small and overlooked the pool area. I don't think I would have liked being on the first floor as some balconies have the music speakers mounted on the walls right outside the balconies. On the fourth floor once the doors were closed the music and people in the pool bar were barely audible. The room also had air conditioning which you controlled from the room and was very efficient. We did not use the facilities in the room to cook but there was a hob, microwave grill, toaster, a good sized fridge and ample utensils, cutlery and plates etc, all in good condition.
The hotel has a small sized pool with ramped access and a separate children's pool. However despite its size at no point on our visit was it over crowded. Ample sun loungers around the pool were again enough for people there during our week stay. The hotel is right on the beach which is a massive bonus to us. Literally out the back gates and you are on the promenade and onto the beach. No traffic or road to cross straight onto a lovely beach. The beach itself was clean, tidy and lovely. The hotel has two bars, one inside and one outside. They serve a range of soft drinks, beer, wine and local spirits included in the all inclusive tariff. Also, bar snacks are available throughout the day from the pool bar, which is under cover useful if the weather turns. The restaurant was clean and well maintained. The waiting staff were efficient and friendly (if you are in turn of course!). The food quality was excellent and they offer a good range of foods to cater for a varied crowd. I understand that some people consider the selection to be a bit poor but in my mind for a 3* hotel feeding so many people three times a day from different countries they certainly offer a good selection and the quality was always good. A great salad bar, show cooking of meats/fish, vegetables, with usual chips, potatoes etc. Breakfast selection was good with both cooked and continental varieties. The hot drinks machine makes lovely coffees and hot chocolates! Themed nights were Mexican, sushi, seafood. Dessert selection was limited but they did have a chocolate fountain every night!!
The hotel also offers a table tennis table, pool table, computers with internet, an arcade games room, squash. Wifi is offered in the hotel at an additional charge. For one week it was 20â¬ for two people to have access. We did not opt for the wifi so I can't comment on its signal/speed. Safety deposit boxes are available. The lift capacity is quite small and the doors are a little eager to close but we had no issues of overcrowding or having to wait on our visit.
The hotel is ideally located for access into the town or in the opposite direction you can walk around the river. There are plenty of supermarkets including a large one just 100m from the front of the hotel which would be more than adequate to supply all you need for self catering.
I can highly recommend the Santa Eulalia ferries. We took one to Es Cana on Wednesday for the hippy market. It cost 12â¬ return which was cheaper than the Thomson excursion and gave you the flexibility to do as you wished. The scenery was also beautiful from the boat and the trip was very long at all. We also visited the island of Formentera with the same company for 32â¬ return. It was 1.5hr one way trip and I would highly recommend. I have to admit the last half hour of the boat trip was quite rocky and not to my liking but was well worth it to see the beautiful white sand and turquoise sea beaches of the island. It was like somewhere exotic and I would definitely return!
We also visited " Scorpio" hairdressers in Santa Eulalia town which I would highly recommend. We both had head massages and wow! The October special was 10â¬ and was worth more than that. So if you are looking for something different or something to do on a rainy day, check it out, you won't be disappointed!
Overall, the hotel was lovely, a great location, friendly staff, good quality food and would highly recommend the premier rooms. We loved this hotel and location and are planning on returning next season. This hotel is a great example of a 3* hotel and exceeded expectations more than once. I would definitely recommend the all inclusive option as it is well worth he money.More
Room for improvements but a good stay!
I had a pleasant stay at Orquidea hotel in Santa Eulalia with my partner and baby. We had a studio room (it had a fridge, microwave, cooker, TV and kitchen sink) and booked through First Choice for a decent lastminute price (all inclusive). The hotel itself was clean and modern.
I'll just list good and bad points, though must say that if I was the sort of person to stay in the same hotel twice (I'm not) I would stay here again.
Mostly friendly staff
Good kids-entertaining team
Decent evening entertainment (I normally run to my room to avoid the hotel entertainment but the free bingo, magic show, etc were cool)
Fair amount of TV channels
Great location (near beach, near a beautiful marina, 2 minutes from 2 large supermarkets (Eroski and Spar supermarkets) and lots of restaurants within 5 minutes, plus other shops, tonnes of chemists, cash machines, etc
Had to pay 3 euros per night for a baby's cot which I had not been warned about. I expect all-inclusive to cover all costs and was annoyed not to be warned off this beforehand!.
Our studio room was too small!
Wifi/internet was expensive! 30 euros for a weeks wifi on one device.
Ice cream during the day is only available to children (adults have to pay for it!), I've never encountered anything like this before in an all-inclusive.
There was a problem with small ants in the kitchen bit of our apartment. Managed to eliminate them and made sure we had no food in there at all which probably helped.
They are a bit over careful/stingy in the hotel ensuring you only have one drink at a time and are not wasteful with food/drink.
Cocktails are not included in the all inclusive and are charged at 6.15 euros (or 4.95 euros for the cocktail of the day) however the cocktails are wonderful.
The lifts are tiny!
My stay was in October 2014, I believe this is low season. I can imagine it being a nightmare in high season with queues and people fighting for loungers but it was ok while we were there. Most of the guests were British or German.More
I stayed in Orquidea apartahotel in August.the hotel is in the best location .Right on the beach convieniant for the beach bars and restaurants.The swimming pool is a good size .the pool area and hotel is spotlessly clean.The rooms are a bit disappointing .i would say they are only 3* standard.Quite basic.If you are not planning on spending much time in your room ,they are fine.I do think if you bear in mind how much you have paid for the hotel it is good value for money.I would stay at the hotel again.More
