Nice/Clean & Close to the Beach, Friendly Staff

Posted Jun 6, 2014
Pros: The staff we kind, friendly & helpful. The rooms were clean & roomy. The breakfast was delicious!
Cons: If you can't walk up stairs or a steep climb I wouldn't recommend this resort.
Location: The beach is great & there are loads of places to eat. We didn't have a bad meal in 9 days. Try the After the Beach Bar for an amazing sunset view.
We really enjoyed our stay at this resort. On a steep hill & has great sunset views.

Best of all Worlds

Posted Apr 6, 2014
Pros: The staff, pool, location, and view.
Cons: Nothing! Don't change a thing!
Location: The beach is very close, and so are many shops and restaurants. A great location for many reasons.
Our stay at this hotel was wonderful, and we couldn't have asked for more. My two boys, aged 3 and 9, loved the pool, and the staff, who treated them so kindly. Our room was very nice, with a fabulous view of the ocean. And the proximity to the beach, shops and restaurants was most helpful. The staff here are amazing, and went above and beyond to make sure we were always comfortable. Just wish we could've stayed longer. We'll be returning, that's for certain! Many thanks to everyone at the Orchidacea!

Clean and a good value, lots of stairs

Posted Mar 30, 2014 on Hotels.com
Very clean, beds are not as comfortable, pleasant staff and a 5 minute walk to the beach. Lots of stairs to climb to your rooms but they provide a ride to the top of the resort. Seems like an older place.

Good comfotable stay

Great service, good sized rooms and great location. Only slight compliant is the accessibility as I had to walk up a lot of stairs. That said, the view from my room as a result was excellent

Can't recommend it.

Posted Dec 30, 2013
Pros: The only good thing about Orchidacea was its proximity to Kata and Kata Noi beaches. You could walk to either in less than five minutes.
Cons: The staff need to be able to provide the information guests need. There were usually ten people around, but none of them knew anything about Phuket.
Location: Kata and Kata Noi beaches are beautiful. At the Orchidacea's end of Kata, there's great snorkeling and the best restaurant we could find, Kata Mama.
We got a decent deal on our room, so I can't really complain that it was tiny and at the top of a mile of stairs, but the staff at the Orchidacea were utterly worthless. If you asked three people the same question, you'd get three different answers, none of them right. One example: when we asked the bellboy how long it would take to get to the tiger park, probably one of the most famous tourist attractions in Phuket, he told us there wasn't one. I don't think I saw a single member of the staff smile in the five days my girlfriend and I were there, which kinda went along with the clientele, who were some of the rudest people I've ever encountered.

Nice hotels with clean rooms.

Posted Nov 22, 2013
Pros: clean rooms with good service
Cons: some rooms do not have safes and have adjoining doors to next room
Location: location was good as it was slightly outwith the center of the town and consequently was not affected by noise

Excellent place to stay.

Posted Aug 23, 2013
Pros: Nice pool and gardens, great view of Kata beach from some the rooms.
Cons: Some of the gym equipment needs a little repairing.
Location: Locaton is great, very close to Kata beach and a short work to the main restaurants in Kata
The hotel is very clean and well maintained, staff are very friendly and helpful, the breakfast on offer offers a nice selection to suit all travellers. Its not a 5 star resort however offers very good value for money and a nice, safe place to relax while in Phuket.

Orchidacea is the Venus Fly Trap of hotels

Posted Aug 20, 2013 on Hotels.com
I had to climb 140 steps each time I walked from the street to my room several times each day. No elevator and no view. The most poorly designed hotel I've stay in. It's a maze of weird angles and steps. I don't recommend speaking to anyone at the front desk about taxi fares. Each person I asked gave me a different number ranging from 500-1000 baht. Awkward service in the restaurant at breakfast.

Love it

Posted May 15, 2013 on Hotels.com
The overall experience was just great. The room was clean, the staff were friendly, very near the beach, breakfast was good, convenient stores, massage palour and restaurants nearby, etc. Will come back here again when if I go to Phuket again. A word of caution: if you cannot climb, do not book this hotel. The rooms are on higher ground and everyone still needs to climb a bit to take the lift.
