Las Orquideas is more like a bed and breakfast than a hotel, and it´s certainly a no frills "hotel." I don´t think there are more than 7 rooms. The owner and her son and daughter-in-law all live here in separate rooms, so there are really only 4 rooms for rent.
The owner is very nice and hospitable. She lived in Massachusetts (or maybe Mississippi...I forget which "M" state it was) for 20 years and does speak English, so I´m not sure why another reviewer mentioned that the owner speaks very little English. That is NOT true, as we held quite a lengthy conversation. She recommended a few very good restaurants in town, one of which is Mar & Tierra. She also offered to throw our wet clothes in the dryer if we managed to get them soaked during our canopy tour.
Positives about the place: free internet in the common area, homey feeling, breakfast, amazing view out the back
Negatives: not much. We were placed in a small corner room, but for the price we paid, I´m not complaining. The room served its purpose. The room doesn´t come with a blowdryer (a must have for my crazy, frizzy hair), but I never leave home without it anyway. So, if you are looking for a hotel with all that jazz, this is not the place for you.
