A holiday begins at home: make up your mind, find fine places, compare prices, read reviews. And also: see websites, use Google Maps and Streetview or similar programs. Never before one could be so well informed on holiday destinations as nowadays. So the steep hill was not a surprise, nor were the nice views and the degree of service rendered....

A lovely complex with clean apartments, 5 swimming pools and a super water slide. THE COMPLEX IS UP THE HILL BUT THE WALK DOWN INTO THE SHOPS IS FINE. The balcony was great and we liked the sunbeds around the pools. There were shaded areas to sit too. The best thing we found about this apartment was the value.

So far this year – 2012. I’ve had two breaks at La Orquidea. My first visit was in a Penthouse unit and the second time in one of the more basic units. Before booking, I extensively reviewed what was on offer in the local area, and I have to say that I was motivated by some keen ‘winter’ pricing by...

We wanted a quiet and slightly distant location for our holiday. Our family, with a 10 month child, had a great time at the resort. We did get the quiet and peace we wanted, with sights clos by car. Had some fine dining in the local restaurants, but also good cooking in our own kitchen :) We arrived on a...

We booked for one week with us -( our Grand-daughter and her friend )- Through Worldwide Exchange Club. Pictures looked great - That was the best bit. The apartment was faded - grubby - The kitchen units were in a bad state of repair, the 'air conditioning' was a free standing circular fan which didn't even stand straight. There was...

La Orquidea is just what you need for chilling out and complete relaxation. Our apartment was spacious and immaculate. The furnishing was pleasant and the flat screen television (with 5 English channels) was welcome when we needed to simply stay in and relax.There were ample cooking facilities in the well equipped kitchen, ideal for when you've had enough of dining...

This was our last true family holiday together before I left for University so we wanted to make the most of it. La Orquidea did not disappoint. Our penthouse apartment was affordable and very well fitted out, modern, spacious and comfortable.

This is a friendly resort with a nice atmosphere but was appauled at how dirty the swimming pools are, just take a look around the wall tiles really filthy. My children are grown up but if I had younger children I would not allow them in the pool, a friends family all went home with ear infections.....worrying.

Hi Beany Many thanks for staying at La Orquidea but we were disappointed to hear that you felt that the swimming pools weren't clean. Reception staff received NO complaints at all about pool cleanliness either during August when you stayed or at any other time this year and our maintenance staff and cleaning staff are constantly praised by guests at...

Requirements: When I travel it is usually along the road less travelled, I love the challenge of travel to remote places. When you travel like that you accept what ever comes along. Now I have a young daughter, priorities are different, at least for the next 3-4 years. The criteria I'm looking for now are cleanliness, well maintained pools and...
