My partner & I arrived at the Orchidacea on 17th June this year, and stayed for 20 nights. We checked in in the middle of the night after a long journey, & were initially allocated a twin room which we weren't happy about as we had booked a double, but within 10 minutes our booking had been checked & we...

We stayed at the Orchidacea in May 2013. Thought this Hotel was great central base, nice room and bathroom that was cleaned every day. Two bottles of water supplied every day was very welcoming and fresh towels everyday! Many people complaining about the steps-yes there are many steps but it is to be expected after reading reviews. Great sea view...

There were exactly 140 stairs to climb from the street to my room which had no view. If you love climbing steps and hate views then this hotel is for you! There's no elevator by the way and I was taken in a minivan with my luggage after check-in. On check-out day no one showed up to retrieve my luggage...

I had one of the worst experiences in this hotel, the lobby looks nice and welcoming. When we entered our room we were shocked, the walls were full of spider nets (we found two spiders alive and several dead), the bedsheets were dirty and no toilet paper was provided. When asking at the reception for the toilet paper they told...

We stayed here 12 nights in July 2013. Overall it was a pleasant experience. You can not expect a magical 5 star resort for the price of this accommodation. We had a lovely room in block 6 with great views of Kata beach and the pool. Yes it was a big climb (all 147 steps from the road to our...

Lovely hotel, great staff, it's probably only a 5 minute walk to the beach but because it's on a hill, you have a steep incline and a lot of steps to your room. Lovely area with plenty to do, food & drink cheap, lovely views on the beach although it did tend to get quite busy. Plenty of restaurants /...

Apart from the steps, the rooms were clean serviced well, the facilities at the hotel were great. Very enjoyable. The pool and bar was a welcome relief from the heat. The aircon would have been a nice to be left on while away from the room so that a cooling return to the room could be enjoyed, they key in...

Okay, this place is cheap but why come all the way to Phuket to experience something that is very very average at best? Internet costs 250 a day and ONLY works in the lobby. Cant get it at the pool despite it being shown as available on my ipad. Absolutely madness! When we were taken to our room the door...

I have been to Thailand around 10 times by now, so I can compare. You can get better for your money in many places in Thailand, but Phuket is really expensive so if you stand for Phuket and you want a reasonable accomodation in a walking distace from a beach Orchidaces can be your choice. 1. It is not luxury,...
