We just spent a long November fortnight at La Orquidea. This is a brutally frank and honest appraisal of the complex. I suppose my main concern about the apartment was the black mould growing on three out of four walls in each bedroom. We noticed it when we first moved in, and by the time we left it was threatening...

This Resort is excellent. The facilities are first class, the accommodation excellent, the Leaseholder of the Bar is obnoxious. If you are considering this Resort do not book if "Les" is still in charge.

La Orquidea – We first stayed in the “Little Gem”, a 1 bedroom apartment opening out to the garden. We enjoyed the ripe Kumquats and Avacados!
