A holiday begins at home: make up your mind, find fine places, compare prices, read reviews. And also: see websites, use Google Maps and Streetview or similar programs. Never before one could be so well informed on holiday destinations as nowadays.
So the steep hill was not a surprise, nor were the nice views and the degree of service rendered.
We stayed a bit more than five weeks at La Orquidea, in April and May 2012, and we had a magnificent time there. Being rather self-supporting we didn't dine out that much and the apartments kitchen was well equiped; everything was there.
The beds could have used an extension. The tallest of us measures almost 1.95M and the beds didn't. Nevertheless we enjoyed the nights as well.
Being situated up hill means that the AP7 is almost in the backyard of La Orquidea. No noice produced whatsoever, as the AP7 is tunnelled there.
La Orquidea is a very pleasant place to stay. We must draw your attention to this lovely resort at Sitio de Calahonda.
