Reviewed 18 January 2010

Whenever I come to Borocay, there is always one place my family and I prefer to stay: The Orchids Resort. The atmosphere is lovely, giving us a very native and cultural experience. The condos themselves are beautiful, with a perfect view of the sunrise. The staff is extremely friendly and willing to help, even handling our baggage while arriving and departing from this resort. It is extremely cheap for those money-minded people and for what you get for your money, it is definiately worth it. The white beach is only a 5 minute walk and from there on, restaurants, water sports, everything you can expect from a beautiful island. We will definiately be there again!

Our stay at the Boracay orchids resorts villa was great and we can recommend it to everyone who is looking for a apartment holiday.

To get a better idea what the villas are like read below:

We booked one of the new build villa for a couple of weeks and stayed there quit a long time. We had a nice welcome from both managers and someone from the staff picked us up from the beach (you have to write them an e-mail that you wish to get picked up). You cant reach the resort by car or so you have to walk a bit after you take a trysicle from the fary (so a backpack was verry helpful walking along the beach until you get to the resort)
The staff was verry friendly and helped us around and to find everything we were looking for on the iland and answerd all our questions (restaurants, places to look at, shop, supermarket, trycicles) gave us maps ... the help you in all ways.

The villas are little apartments wich include internet ( isn´t the fastest).
If you enter the 1 floor you find the bedroom, a closet, with a included safe , tv and air-conditioner. On the same floor there is the bathroom wich was verry clan. (everything was clean) and you can tell the staff when ever you need new towles, paper or new bedding they come and clean when ever you wish. There also was a washing maschine in front of the villa, that was verry nice and easy to use.

2. floor there is the kitchen (with all dishes and pots, big frige (filled with drinks, table...) You have to buy spices, foods, soap towles....
A second Tv (you can rent a dvd-player and dvds) and a nice sitting area with a great balcony expect you in 2 level as well.

All in all we can say its a great apartment with everything you need.

I first experienced my stay at the Orchids 6years ago with my cousins, it was my first time also to go to Boracay. I fell inlove with the resort immediatly, so I brought my boyfriend also 4years ago and he loved it so much as well. From then on, we keep on coming back every year to spend our summer vacation at their beautiful resort.
The staff are very attentive with everything that we need. They are very friendly and accomdating. The rooms are very clean and are very comfortable. We really felt very relaxed because of the tropical atmosphere that they have, we really felt that we are in a beautiful island because of the ambience that they have and because of the greeneries and flowers that the resort are full of. Not like the other resorts that are very city-like and felt the same hotels and buildings that we have in the city.
What is great about this place, is not only they have excellent services and amenities, is also because it is very budget friendly. They give the chance to people, like us, who are tight on a budget to experience also the grandness of Boracay. Our Boracay vacation is not the same without them.
Two thumbs up to the Orchid Resort!

Gorgeous little resort and excellent value. Staff are 24 hours and there is a really friendly, family vibe about the place. As another reviewer has said, very safe for single female travellers as the staff get to know you early on and watch your room for you and greet you all the time. Very decent rates and nice to stay in an authentic style accommodation.

Staff are also very helpful and able to recommend tours and activities at discounted rates. I took the Alan B fun tour island hopping for a day. Exceptional value and a fun day out. Also used Blue Mango Diving to do my PADI Open water as recommended by Orchids. Anything you are looking to do, they can offer advice and organise things for you.

The owners are fantastic and offer a really personal service. They make an effort to introduce themselves to you and to make sure you are enjoying your stay. It would be very difficult not to enjoy it here! Lovely peaceful location set in little gardens just south of Boat Station 3. Approx 2 mins walk to the stunning white beach, along which are countless restaurants, shops etc. Very relaxing and much calmer than the busier Station 2, with a lot less vendors.

Drinks are reasonably priced and there are plenty of little shops nearby for anything else you may need. Cable TV in rooms had a surprising amount of channels in many different languages, not that I watched much tv, but nice to have .... Showers are better than you would think with hot and cold water at all times as they have generators for any power outtages.

Thoroughly recommend this place, I really enjoyed my time here.

We stayed in a private villa here for two weeks, Orchids arranged the transfers to and from the airport which went without a hitch, on arrival we were greeted by Lynn and Hermann who were great and helpful hosts for our stay.
The villas are fully equipped for lengthy stays, being food fussy it was important for us to have a decent fridge and cooking facilities, the upstairs is cooking and living area with a great elevation breezy balcony, cable tv and traditional lounge setting with overhead fan.
Downstairs the sleeping area stays cool and has AC with wardrobe and smaller cable tv, also good shower and toilet facilities, also overhead fan.
The gardens are beautiful, an abundance of tropical trees, the walk to the beach and Kurts bar etc. is about 2 minutes, breakfast by the beach is missed by us both.
There is a washing machine and BBQ if needed.
The staff were completely at ease to assist with any minor request.
The villas are great value very well designed for comfort and home like accommodation, we live in the Philippines and find this style of holiday very practical and down to earth, also great quality and comfort.
I really cant fault the private villas, excellent value and architect designed home style, with a breeze and friendly helpful staff.
First class!!!!!!

Orchids is a very special place. We stayed in a bungalow and spent a great deal of time lounging in the hammock on the veranda. The staff are outstanding. We received great recommendations for massages, scuba, snorkel, restaurants, etc... Also, they can prepare special meals for any occasion. Thanks for the great stay!

We have seen many places before we chose "The Orchids". It is a wonderful resort, with friendly native people, authentic bamboo fan rooms and a beautifl garden. Their service is excellent. You cannot only have as much free coffee and tea as you like, but they also help you out with all sorts of issues spontaneously, professionally and quickly. Anything you need? No need to go to the tourist office, just ask one of the the resort staff.
On top of it all, it was a very economic price, so perfect!
We enjoyed our stay so much that we really had a hard time leaving! Thank you, guys! We sure will come back one day;-)
