After a visit we were so surpriced on the care and attention to the authentic Italian service. Always with a smile and a level of accomondation that you only find in Italy. Loved the place, and it was especially handy during lunch time with the kids, and the pools connected to the resort. Just brilliant for keeping the kids active... More

The complex was really nice with all the swimmimng pools which were spotless but the location was terrible, very noisy at night and if your not fit, good job we were, as its half way up a mountain with no transport only shanks pony or taxi. You need a car if you are staying here as there are no shops... More

We have stayed at this resort a no of times, and although clean and tidy, and beautiful surroundings some of the apartments could do with a bit of updating(sun umbrella broken, no A/C) We also found that there was no English TV, even though the welcome pack states that you can re-tune to receive, on asking about this we were...

Just spent a week here with my two kids. Staff at the bar (Alex & Vito) can't do enough for you and are very friendly. Food at the bar is wide ranging and can be cheap or a little expensive. Everything cooked fresh. Alex & Vito will organise taxis for you, which you need to get about if you don't... More

Just returned with my wife and 2 kids from a relaxing week here. We had a great time and would thoroughly recommend this place. We stayed in a penthouse which was very spacious and had fantastic views, well worth walking the 68 stairs ! Shame there's no A/C but we knew that before we booked so cant complain, we were... More

We arrived late at night and on entering the apartment found that it had a strong smell of smoke also the sheets on the bed were a little damp. We awoke the next morning to find that the doors and windows were covered in condensation. There were also damp patches on areas of the walls around the appartment. However as... More

We just spent a long November fortnight at La Orquidea. This is a brutally frank and honest appraisal of the complex. I suppose my main concern about the apartment was the black mould growing on three out of four walls in each bedroom. We noticed it when we first moved in, and by the time we left it was threatening... More
