What a fantastic holiday we had. Staff were unbelievable could not do enough and were always happy. Alex bar manager was brilliant with his music and spoke very good English. Millie the entertainer was fantastic and we met some lovely people. The rooms were lovely and were cleaned daily.
brilliant family holiday
Upgraded to a Sea/Pool view for 70 euros on arrival, well worth the money for a beautiful view and very helpful when your kids don’t want to go up to the room and want to stay in the pool. We had a 1 bedroomed apartment, standard size for spain, seperate bedroom with 2 x single beds, 2 single pull out beds in the living area, quite comfy in comparison to some i’ve been in. The room was clean and well kept, balcony was large enough for 2 of us but not if we all wanted to sit out to eat together. Room had microwave/cooker and hob top, ate in a couple of times so adequate for cooking a meal on. Did eat at the bar a couple of times, good portions and food was lovey, we stayed on self catering so did’nt eat in the restaurant. Entertainment was as you can expect, there was a magician, a 70’s disco night, flamenco dancers, a comedian/singer,a drag act (i’d say they were the best of the lot to be honest, very entertaining and although a bit tongue in cheek even my kids laughed) My youngest enjoyed dancing in his seat and watching Milly who takes care of the little ones and encourages daytime activities like water polo ect and got all the kids and mums and dads up dancing at mini disco, he was quite put out when it was her day off bless him. The bar staff were very attentive, friendly and got involved with the entertainment evenings, you got a little bit of a dance out of them behind the bar occasionally which was quite funny and showed their fun side. We never had to wait long for a drink and very rarely had to approach the bar as it was generally table service. I did’nt have to ‘dash’ for a sunbed as much as I had been led to believe in reviews, even if we did’nt come down to the pool till 10 beds and space were available. They lock the sunbeds up untill 9am so none of the usual crack of dawn scraping of beds going on and waking you up. The hotel has a front and back entrance, the back is locked after about 11pm. The back entrance leads on to the beach and the main promenade and you hit shops, restaurant, bars ect almost immediately, to walk up into the harbor area took about 15/20 minutes, perfect for strollers or wheelchairs as its all flat and there are numerous benches ect if older members need a rest. The reception staff were brilliant, we had delayed luggage and they helped us sort it,very friendly and efficient, always polite and professional, they also helped us with info about going to the LAs Dalias hippy market (pay on the bus,rather than pre purchasing tickets at the ticket booth). All in all we had a brilliant week, the hotel was better than expected, brilliant location, lovely staff,would definitely return.
Hotel Orquidea is a pleasant hotel right on the beach and just along from the town, far enough to walk of a large dinner by the marina! Overall very good, enjoyed two weeks with the family staying B&B. Breakfast is vast and served in the all inclusive dining room, hot plate was a hit with the kids serving fresh pancakes and churro’s! Pool area was very busy during the day and would advise being down before 9 when the beds are unlocked to get a good position in the sun as some of the pool area gets shaded mid afternoon. Bar staff are friendly and happy to help, Manuel also made a mean G&T in the evening. Overall very good would use again.
HOTEL ORQUIDEA Santa Eulalia
Could not fault the rooms for cleanliness & facilities. Very modern & new. Swimming pool was nowhere near large enough for the amount of people. Stayed for 10 days in August & unless you put towels on loungers at dead on 9 0/clock in the morning, there was no chance of a sunbed. The loungers were also very tightly packed around the pool so walking through them was quite a challenge. Hotel location was very good with the resort & amenities all within walking distance.
Long weekend for family wedding
Only stayed for the weekend and to be fair we weren’t at hotel very much but rooms were large, clean and comfortable. Bar areas both in reception and pool were nice. Staff were friendly and attentive. Reception staff couldn’t be more helpful also. Pool was nice, plenty of sunbeds (have to leave a deposit for towels if you don’t have your own) Location fantastic, right on the beach and also very close to promenade where there are plenty of restaurants and bars to visit. Would definitely return and recommend.
Jet2 holiday, self catering in a suite. Not cheap, but the suite was superb. Separate bedroom, open lounge, dining room and kitchen. Magnificent sun terrace, room 468 around 500 square feet at least, with deck furniture, sun beds, and a very welcome private plunge pool! Fantastic sea views over the esplanade, looking towards Formentera, I believe. Highly recommended.
Stayed one week August 2017 all inclusive. Nice clean hotel, our premium one bed room was modern and spacious. We had countryside view which was ok. The balcony was disappointing as it only had a small table and 2 chairs so not enough space for our family if 4 or for 2 to sit comfortably and enjoy a drink, so we sat around the snack bar pool area. Staff very friendly and attentive in all areas of the hotel. Food was of a good standard and lots of choice. Hotel in a great location opposite a nice beach. As it was high season the pool area was very crowded but we just headed to the beach. We usually found we could get a subbed at some point of the day but suffered the usual problems of people reserving beds by leaving towels on beds and disappearing for hours on end. All in all, we had a lovely holiday and would consider returning to this hotel in the future but would request a larger balcony. Massive positives: very clean and very nice staff.
We got a great deal on an all inclusive package, it was the end of the school holidays. We decided before we went to eat out a few evenings, but the food was very good and varied and we didn’t really bother. The best part was the live cooking station at every meal time. At lunch and evening meal time, there was always fish, meat and pasta, which was freshly cooked in front of you. The staff were very friendly too and at the poolside bar, we were always served quickly. This hotel is in a good location and the rooms are very clean, We were offered a pool/ sea view on arrival for an extra 35 euros, we took this and were happy the room- it had a beautiful view. I would highly this hotel.
Just got back from a week here. Cannot fault anything about the hotel at all. Staff were lovely, hotel clean and comfortable. We upgraded to a pool and sea view for just 35 euros. Fridge and job in the room as well as a bath in ours. The only down side of this was that we were right above the evening entertainment which went on rather loudly till around 11pm. We had 5 adults and a baby on our trip and at this time of year did not struggle with getting sun beds all together, the pool isn’t that big though so I can imagine in peak season it may be an issue. The beach is literally a 1 minute walk though. We were all inclusive and this is by far the best buffet restaurant I’ve been to in a European hotel. Plenty of choice and also someone cooking fresh meals. The Pool bar also serves snacks from 11am till 7pm. Drinks were all great that were included. Just have to pay for cocktails. Daily entertainment for the children and adults was good. Supermarket and a variety of shops and restaurants a Short stroll away. All in all really impressed with this holiday. Would definitely recommend!
BEST HOLIDAY YET!!
From when we entered the hotel to when we left, we were made very welcome and everyone was as helpful and friendly as they possibly could be. Th hotel is very clean and the room was really spacious, we stayed in a premium studio,which was excellent. The restaurant staff and bar staff were very friendly and puncual, and must give a special mention to Millie the entertainment worker who worked tirelessly to make everyone have a great holiday. My wife and i will be going back to this hotel no doubt, well done Orquidea you have a great hotel. Thank you so much!!
