“Another excellent holiday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

Recently got back from a fantastic week at this hotel, what to say. We asked for a room on the 7th floor and on arrival we were allocated room 716. We had an amazing view from the room. I travelled with my 14 year old son and my mom. There were always plenty of sun loungers around the pool area or on the grass with a bit of shade. However on a couple of days it was really windy. The only downside was that there was not a lot for my son to do as you had to be over 16 for the activities unless you were a youngster. The reps were fantastic all day everyday especially Lisa lollipop..... Food was amazing, everything you could wish for. All in all a fantastic holiday

Great holiday especially if you have kids. Entertainment team are fantastic and keep both kids and adults entertained all day. There is a kids club for kids to go to. 3 different pools and crazy golf. Food was good and plenty of choice with a kids section. We stayed in a family room which was quite spacious and had a lovely view of the swimming pools and sea. Nice few shops outside of the hotel which are nice to look around. Visit playa del ingles and Maspalomas are worth the trip. Beautiful places with lovely beaches means there isn't really one by the hotel.

First time at this hotel with my family, ( me, husband, 2 boys 8&5 8 month old daughter and my parents) we stayed for 2 weeks and could have stayed another 2. The hotel was lovely the food was excellent lots of choice and great that there was a kids section,the staff were so friendly and the entertainment staff were absolutely brilliant ( big daddy, steady Eddie, Lisa lollipop and cha cha Charlie) great credit to the thomson team. The thomson reps were great to always knew the answer to any question. Will defiantly be returning in the future.

On arriving at Grand canaria airport the Thomson rep told us which bus to go on. There was NO rep to make sure you on right bus. on arrival at hotel was up to yourself to make sure you at right hotel. We arrived at hotel at about 22.15 restaurant closed at 21.00 there was no snack not even for kids. The Thomson entertainment team were great, the only prob was some nights they finished by 20.30 they did put music on after but bar staff complained that it was too noisy . Rooms were ok with pool and sea view. a lot of people put out towels early, I put are towels out at 8am still sun loungers around pool.

Just returned from a week in the Orquidea. We had a brilliant time. The hotel itself is great, the food excellent and most of the staff friendly. Big Daddy was a brilliant entertainer along with Steady Eddie and Lisa lollipop. They had so much energy and always had time for the guests. Lisa's energy was amazing! My kids enjoyed the kids clubs and all the kids reps were excellent. My sons favourite was Lovely Lauren. We are already planning on returning next year for longer as a week just wasn't long enough.
The resort itself is small but as we were all inclusive and the entertainment was ongoing we stayed in the hotel. We felt safe to let the kids run about and play without worrying.
A big thank you for the bottle of 'champagne' for my birthday too.
Can't recommend enough. Will definitely be returning next year.

First of all transfer time is really good, we also had an extra quick check in so great if travelling with young children.

The hotel is right on the beach - this is fine and we preferred this to the busy pool area. Beach is quite rocky but my little boy seemed happy enough with that. Re the sunbed issue - yes people do get up early to put towels down but really don't think that is any different to any other hotel.

Food is excellent, I really can't complain about that at all. Areas did get very busy at times but we found that breakfast at around 8am and dinner at 6pm meant the food was hot and there were no big queues for carved meat station etc. All of the staff work exceptionally hard, they really do earn their wages.

I can't really comment on the entertainment as we didn't see much of it. The heat meant I had a very exhausted five year old so we were back in the hotel room by 9.30pm. The noise from the entertainment caused us no problems at all once we were back in the rooms.

Moving onto the rooms. We were originally allocated a room on the 11th floor but changed this immediately to a lower floor as one of our party didn't like heights. The room itself is ok, it could do with a refurb but I understand this would be difficult with so many visitors. The childs bed (pulled out from under sofa) was awful!! My little boy ended up sharing my bed as it slanted so much there was a good three inch height difference between the head and foot of the bed. As I had already changed rooms I didn't speak to reception about this - they had already informed me the hotel was full and there were limited options in terms of changing rooms. The rooms on 6th floor have all been refurbished to an excellent standard - walk in showers and proper beds. I did put a request in for one of these prior to arrival as I had read that they were excellent. If you do get one of these you are very lucky!

Most rooms appear to be sea facing, small minority are not.

Apart from that not much more to say in this hotel. Would I stay again, no I probably wouldn't. Its my first all inclusive and most likely my last. I prefer to be able to walk around/visit shops etc but apart from a couple of little shops and a 20 min walk along the beach there wasn't much else without getting a bus/taxi.

We travelled here as a party of two adults and a six year old boy and we had a ball.

Booked it as a last minute holiday and have to say it's a very good family hotel. It's made by the entertainment staff, Big Daddy, Steady Eddie, Lisa Lollipop and Courtney Crush. They are always full of energy and fun, our little boy loved them. He's never really been interested in the entertainment before but he loved this, the reps against guests day is brilliant fun, also look out for the reps show which is very good, there's a couple of solo numbers in there which were outstanding. Get involved in all the games during the day and you will have a great laugh.

Transfer from the airport is only 15 mins and the first drop off which is great. When you arrive check in is quick and simple. Reception area is smart and first impressions are good.

We were on the eleventh floor which is the top floor and there are cracking views from there, you can also hear the waves breaking on the beach which is really nice. There are three lifts which are quite fast, you need them for that floor.

The rooms are spacious and well presented although ours could have done with a touch of paint here and there but nothing to moan about. The beds are comfortable, even the extra one they put in for our little boy. Rooms are made up and towels changed every day if you want it done.

Food is plentiful and there is a decent amount of choice. There is always plenty of fish, pasta, meats, vegetable options, salads, soups and a carving station which has a different meat or fish each evening. There are plenty of desert choices too and a chocolate fountain. Breakfast is very good, fruits, cereals, breads, meats, cheeses and full cooked breakfast options. My only complaint, and it's a small one, is that the snack bar which is open until six starts to run out of food around four. Drink is the usual choice of local beer, wines and spirits and is fine. Even when it's busy in the evening you don't have to wait long for a drink.


There are plenty of sunbeds available but if you want a certain spot then you would have to get up early for it, if you're not bothered then you will always get a sunbed somewhere. Poolside can be a little slippy but they seemed to be working on that while we were there so I think that will get sorted. Have a go at the aqua fit and fun, you might just become King or Queen for 24 hours. Make sure you keep the crown on though or Big Daddy will make you do a forfeit, really funny.

Kids clubs were good, the staff seem very competent and friendly, our little boy went several times and really enjoyed them.

If you are after a large beach then this would not be for you. Also if you are adults without children then I would not advise it.

Overall this is a very good family orientated hotel with the best entertainment staff we have ever seen and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a child friendly holiday. We are looking forward to going back, possibly next year.

Room Tip: I would take the high floor option (11) with the sea view, great views and no thumping from above. A...
