Hotel Orquidea details
Teaming a beachside setting with a brilliant pool scene, the Orquidea is spot on for family getaways.
When it comes to family holidays the Hotel Orquidea really hits the nail on the head. It’s part of the Thomson Family Resorts collection from May - mid October, so it comes with a Thomson Kids’ Club and a crèche. Plus, because the property is set in gardens, with lawns stretching to a beach, there’s plenty of space.
Before you get to the beach, though, the pool area will stop you in your tracks. It’s home to three big swimming pools and terraces surrounded by palms.
On the food front, breakfast and dinner are served in the main buffet restaurant, where chefs show-cook as you eat. At lunchtime, the pool bar is really popular, thanks to the picture windows that overlook the pool. When you want a change, there’s an à la carte grill in the gardens.
The rooms are split-level but, if you want a bit more space, you can upgrade to a family suite. Superior rooms, meanwhile, come with flatscreen TVs and DVD players.
