Reviewed 18 May 2014

Have again visited Wild orchid although food is still lousy and there's an incredible bad service, it is both in terms of quality and speed. I was once again back because of they still have the best swimming pool.
But when it comes to the pool, then the reserved to plople NOT staying in the hotel, this applies throughout the weekend spelled on Sunday, it is impossible to get from your own room and get down to the pool and get the room (table and chairs) because it is filled with real many children, and so many guests from other hotels, so my advice to others.
Stay at a good hotel with good service and do as others, just use Wild orchid’s swimming pool

Room Tip: Stay at another hotel, a good hotel with good service and do as others, just use Wild orchid’s swimm...

We had booked a dubbel room though internet 5 months in advance, but the day we arrived, they told us that two men were not allowed in the same room since they did not offer twins beds.
On internet, on them website, they dont say such a thing!
We had to go out of our budget to buy two rooms instead. (2 x 850 USD)
We asked to talk to the manager, but a rather unpleasant caucasian bloke told us there was nothing he could do... IT IS THE POLICY!
We complained and evoked the case of two married men booking a dubbel room through internet.
it is a HOMOPHOBIC policy.
Anyway, alone or with a lady, we will not go to this hotel again, and if they want to be fair, they shoud put their policy on the web.
Fortunately, we could stay in the hotel just in front, "Penthouse hotel".

There is only one reason to stay in this part of Angeles, and that is the nightlife. If you are here for that, then the location of the Wild Orchid Resort is unbeatable. While the rooms in the older part of the hotel are not that great, I can recommend the rooms in the newer Lagoon wing. The value of these rooms is great, as long as they are significantly cheaper than the ABC or Lewis Grand. If not, then stay there for even better pool/garden areas and better food.
The staff at the Wild Orchid was great. The prices of the minibar and of the bars/restaurants of the hotel are very reasonable indeed. There are only three (mostly minor) negatives i would like to point out:
1. The staff in the restaurant is very nice, the ambience is pleasant, so you like to spend time there. But the food is average at best and terrible at worst. There are a couple of items on the menu that are o.k., but most are not good. Luckily, there are a couple of good restaurants nearby (Tequila Reef Cantina, Swiss Chalet, Phillies and others).
2. During my stay they were doing some re-painting of the facade of the building, which shows that they try to maintain the property in good shape. As part of this effort they should also start fighting mold now, as there was some mold already visible in the bathroom (especially on the door to the shower), and if they don't take care of this now, there will be a big problem in only one or two year's time.
3. There were only large bath towels in the room, NO small towels for face/hand etc. I find that odd and it's actually a little inconvenient if you shower more than once a day; even if you are alone in the room, already in the evening there is no clean or dry towel left.
Apart from these minor points, everything was great. Fab pool area, very comfortable beds, good shower with absolutely no problems regarding water pressure or hot water, great Wi-Fi in the room as well as in the public areas, great selection of tv channels, GREAT staff. I will return.

Room Tip: I highly recommend the rooms in the newer Lagoon wing.

For 500 peso you can use the hotel pool a stuff, the great thing is that you are then in credit for 500 peso to spend on food and drink while you are there! So in effect it costs nothing to use the pool!

Room Tip: Didn't stay the night

I've stayed in the lagoon rooms which are superb and you can literally step into the pool from them. Other rooms are so so and pricey by local standards. Nevertheless the hotel is well run with friendly staff and the location couldn't be better. The food is above average without being outstanding. Overall a great place to stay in Angeles.

Room Tip: Try or get a lagoon room the extra price is worth it!

If you're going to spend time at the hotel, this is a nice place to do it. The food is good, the pool is large and nice, and every month they have some sort of attraction going on. If you just need a place to sleep, its kind of pricey. But the location is good, near all the action.

Note: Only stay in the New Lagoon Rooms! The old rooms are shambles, smelly, tired and should not be on offer at any of the prices the hotel demands. Too many people have written great reviews, which led me to stay at this hotel. Never again...staff can be painful to deal with, making rude comments. The Internet is very slow, I could go on..but the main purpose people stay here is so they can entertain there local guests in the pool, the swimming pool is the only reason why you are paying nearly $30 extra a night!
I would rather stay at the ABC Hotel next time
