Hotel across the promenade from the beach, close to shops, restaurants and bars. We went All inclusive and you could not fault it. The hotel entertainment was great and Millie was a real star, she got everyone involved from late morning to evening. Would definitely recommend it. Real value for money.
Really good hotel. Stayed in 1 bedroom apartment self catering. Rooms nice, clean and modern. Well equipped for self catering. Clean pool area, plenty sun loungers and nice poolside bar. Staff friendly and helpful. Hotel well situated for town centre,restaurants and harbour. Would stay here again if returning to the area.
The hotel is set in a lovely location, it's not too big and we loved that. We stayed all inclusive and had no complaints, the food quality was superb. The hotel is clean, well kept and the rooms are well equipped. The bar staff and Millie the entertainment staff were all so lovely and welcoming. Would definitely return
Pros Excellent staff, especially the waiter service. Good snack bar where everything is made to order. Good location in town, close to beach, bars, shops and restaurants. Wheelchair friendly Very clean hotel Quick check in Not too far from airport Free safety deposit box with a refundable deposit Entertainment was OK Rooms cleaned daily Cons Pool small but beach is right across the road Sunbeds are very uncomfortable The toilet in our room had a sliding glass opaque door through which every sound carried. Not good if you are sharing a room with someone. The free Wi fi only lasts for 5 minutes then it is payable The good things out way the bad at this hotel and we had a lovely week staying here and would revisit. We stayed in a premium studio which was a little small but just enough for the two of us. We were pleasantly surprised when we were given a picnic bag as our coach pick up was before the restaurant opening time for breakfast. A 3 star hotel with a 1st class service.
Fabulous hotel, stayed all inclusive, Hotel very clean , staff very friendly. We upgraded our room on arrival for a sea view well worth extra 35 euros. Rooms cleaned daily. Great choice of food. Best of all was Millie who was the entertainer during the day and ran the mini disco for kids at night. She was so lovely and friendly and my 2 girls loved her. The children's entertainment was done at the side of the pool and in the shade so you could see your child. She was so caring and friendly and made the holiday for my girls with fun activities for kids and adults. Thanks Millie.
The apartments are cleaned every day except Tuesday which was fine as we arrived and left on a Tuesday. We had a 'premium' one bedroom apartment which was tiny, with a really comfortable king sized bed in the good sized bedroom, however there was also a sofa bed in the living room but I'm not convinced there would have been enough room to move if it was in use. Only two pillows on bed so we used the two inside the sofa bed for the week we were there. There is a sign in the bathroom requesting that you try and reuse towels, putting them in the bath when you want them changed however even though we hung ours on the rail these were removed but not replaced. On the third day I had to go and find someone cleaning rooms and ask for more. After that we hid one each day so we didn't end the week without any towels. The balcony was really tiny but got the sun most of the afternoon however as the chairs were uncomfortable and there were no cushions in the room, it was not somewhere you could really sit and relax. There was no food preparation area so this apartment was not really suitable for 'self catering'. Hotel is in a great location on the beach with a long promenade which leads to the ferry.
The Orquidea Hotel is around 30 minutes direct transfer time from the airport. On arrival there was one receptionist on duty so checking in our queue took a while. There were a couple of surprises for some in the queue as there is a tax to pay, direct to the hotel of €1 – 2 per person per night, so have some Euros ready at check-in. Safety deposit box was just €20 refundable at check-out with no nightly cost. You get a proper key for the safe and another for the room, no key-card here. There is also free wi-fi throughout the hotel for four devices – just ask for a log-in code at reception. We had booked a one bedroom premium apartment and requested by email a high floor and a room with a bath. Our room was on the fifth floor, the top floor of the Orquidea. The apartments are divided into two wings, one wing services by two lifts, the other wing serviced by just the one. Our room was in the wing with one lift – and what a small lift. The lift capacity stated is for five persons, which in reality means three people and their luggage. During our stay the lift jammed three times while we were trying to use it – so I’m guessing that this must be a regular occurrence, not what you want when taking luggage to high floors – as the 85 steps to the fifth floor are enough to climb without cases. We got to our apartment no.503. The entrance door lead to our room measuring approx. 3.5m x 3.5m (by using the floor tiles as a guide) which contained a sofa bed, coffee table with a couple of pouffe-type seats under it, a hanging rail with a dozen hangers, fridge with ice compartment, combi-microwave and a small kitchenette sink and hob. We also had a kettle, toaster, various cutlery, crockery and eight small tumblers. No wine glasses! There were also a couple of narrow shelves around the walls. There was no food preparation area unless you count the coffee table. There was tiled flooring throughout the apartment including the balcony which flowed nicely. There was a large flat screen TV showing around 50 channels – great if you’re fluent in Spanish, German or Italian, otherwise it’s BBC World news and the Paramount channel showing old films. The TV is also smart so your wi-fi code can operate the internet features, though a proper keyboard available from reception would make it easier to use. Patio doors lead from the room to the balcony. This was very small and although it came with a table and four chairs we doubted if there would be room for four people sitting together. It was adequate for the two of us although the chairs weren’t that comfortable. We had a sea view and being on the top floor there was limited noise from the pool and no noise at all once in the apartment with the patio doors closed. The bedroom was around 2.7m x 3m and had a king-sized bed with a couple of bedside shelves, a wardrobe with another dozen hangers inside and the safe sitting atop a narrow three-drawer chest. We had a good choice of lighting in the bedroom for ambience and light from the window. We found that the bed was extremely comfortable but needed extra pillows which we took from the sofa bed. Channel 1 on the TV even shows how to open the sofa bed. We wouldn’t know how comfortable or practical the apartment would be if others were sleeping on the sofa bed. Firstly, there wouldn’t be much room with the bed pulled out as the coffee table and fridge would have to be negotiated and the bathroom is accessed via the main bedroom. The bathroom had modern fittings including a lit mirror and a decent hair drier and nice tiling with a shower over the bath. The bath was one of the smallest we have ever had and there was a real problem in accessing the taps due to the positioning and opening of the glass shower screen – the only way we found to operate the taps was by getting in the bath. The air conditioning was very efficient and for the cold nights (if there is such a thing in Ibiza) there were cast iron radiators throughout. There were plenty of sockets around the apartment for gadgets and charging devices too. The hotel has a back gateway from the pool area leading directly to the promenade – a flat walk leading around the bay for around a kilometre or so with easy access to the beach. There are dozens of places to eat and drink along the bay, offering different styles of cuisine – something for everyone – and that’s just along the bay - there are plenty more places behind the promenade. The front entrance to the hotel where your transfer drops you has steps down to the hotel and a long ramp for scooters, wheel chairs and cases on wheels. Ask at reception for a local map – we found this useful as it’s a photocopy of local roads, landmarks and useful places – like the Eroski supermarket just a couple of hundred metres away offering reasonable prices on a wide choice of foodstuffs and supplies for your break if you have the work-surfaces to prepare anything yourselves. If you’re looking at travelling out of Santa Eulalia to other towns such as Ibiza old town or Es Cana there are many options. Taxi is easy – the hotel will call one for you or you can take one from the taxi rank in the town. It’s around €10-12 to Es Cana or €30-ish to Ibiza. The ferry from the bay runs around every 20/30 mins to Es Cana and costs €6 for about 15 minutes on the water, every hour to Ibiza town for €11 in around 20-25 minutes, stopping at Cala Llonga part-way for €6. There is a local bus service running to both Es Cana and Ibiza. The bus station (we called it that although there’s just a couple of shelters and a ticket office) is easy to find. The easiest way to find it is to leave the hotel through the back gates, turn left and walk along the promenade to the dog statues, then walk up the pedestrian area to the town hall and the station is just behind it. This is around 10 minutes, although there are more direct routes, this is the most scenic. The bus costs €1.55 to Es Cana (10 minute ride) and €2 to Ibiza town (25 minutes). There are regular services and there’s a timetable in reception. We found that they have limited stops (2 or 3) and vary from single decker buses to luxury coaches with air conditioning. We didn’t use the hotel restaurant, pool or bar so can’t comment on those but as a base for a break in Santa Eulalia it’s fine. It’s almost at one end of the bay with a couple of bars and hotels just further along towards the end of the bay and plenty of scenic walks. Enjoy your holiday!
This was our first family holiday abroad and both the resort and hotel were perfect for us. We upgraded to a one bedroom apartment for a little more space with a toddler in tow and my only criticism would be the living room was smaller than I expected. All in all, very happy and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
Just home from a week's self catering at this fabulous hotel with my sister and disabled mum, can't thank the lovely staff enough, from Carlos at reception from the minute we arrived,to the bar staff and the cleaners who kept this hotel spotless. We would recommend this hotel to anyone , with its great location and wonderfull staff
Just returned from a 6 night stay in this lovely hotel. We upgraded to sea view on arrival and the extra €30 euros was well worth it to enjoy sitting on the balcony soaking up the sun with the lovely view. The location is excellent right on the promenade by the beach with the shops and the marina to the left and river to the right which was very pleasant to walk beside and see the fish swimming in the clear water and all waterfowl It was so peaceful and relaxing. We stayed all inclusive and enjoyed the meals, there was a good selection of food each day. The restaurant was very efficient with plates cleared promptly and food topped up and well presented. The staff were pleasant and helpful and worked very hard to provide an excellent service, the same applies to the bar staff and housekeeping team too.Everywhere was spotless and it is obvious customer satisfaction is considered very important by the hotel. The room we had would have been idea for anyone wanting to cater for themselves too with a good sized fridge and also a hob and microwave,there are plenty on supermarkets nearby for supplies. The young lady who organised the activities was lovely;encouraging people to participate without being intrusive. There was a good range of entertainment which we enjoyed. All in all a very enjoyable holiday.
