We had seen photos of the views from this hotel but didnt quite believe it until we moved into our room - it was wonderful. You can use either the hotel pool or a safe sea swimming spot off the hotel quay. We lunched each day at the adjacent sister hotel which served amongst others a delightful fresh tuna salad... More

This place often hosts weddings as was the case when we were there. Three weddings. Floor vibrated, windows vibrated. Internet would work about an hour then crash. One could call the front desk and they said they would be up to look at things. At least forty minutes would pass each time. Breakfast service -very slow. Just plan to set... More

Just returned from a lovely week's holiday. Perfect location for a quiet week. I went with my husband. We had a wonderful view of the sea from our balcony on floor 7. Good maid service and pool towel supplied. I even received a complimentary bottle in ice bucket for my birthday. It was a lovely surprise delivered to our apartment.... More

Felt at ease from day one. Never had a more relaxing holiday. Very nice hotel in a superb setting. Friendly personal, nice rooms (booked one with sea view) with a small kitchen, separate bedroom. Good food, nice drinks. A lot of stairs, but to me they add to the charm of this hotel. I love it!

Stayed for a week at the Royal Orchid. The two of us had a sixth floor room at the opposite side to the ocean. The reception area is on the fourth floor, ground level on the land side of the cliff! Our room was spacious and very quiet. The hotel is on a cul-de-sac so no passing traffic. We were... More

Have just spent a week there and honestly cannot fault the hotel and its staff especially in the restaurant. We booked a double room, but this had an ensuite bathroom, a separate shower room, a huge living room with three piece sofa, dining table, a kitchen and an amazing terrace looking out into the sea. Rooms are cleaned daily with... More

This was a holiday for two couples celebrating their 40th anniversary, and the first impression of reception and staff (initially Andrez) was great! The professionalism and support given by all the staff including the restaurant staff was great. We enjoyed the area of Canico very much, it had the sea views we wanted, rocky beaches with waves rolling onto the... More
