I came here every summer for 3 weeks growing up, and also my grandparents had a time share and would go regularly. What an amazing place it is. Clean, 6 pools, a slide and bar/entertained. What fantastic memories I have of this place. I'll be taking my children soon.

We love La Orquidea. We have owned a timeshare here for over 20 years sadly this is the last as an owner. Yes the apartments have seen better days but the location high above Calahond afford excellert views of the Med. The area around the "kidney pool" is a little slice of paradise. Thank you Flavio, Christina and the rest...

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...

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.
