The Orchid is a beautiful property. The tropical landscaping and beautiful beach & shoreline are stand outs - great for bird and turtle watching. The vast majority of interactions with staff were above and beyond courteous and friendly; it felt like staff enjoyed their work. In terms of rooms, our King room was kept very clean and all furniture, including the balcony felt up-to-date. While some of the bathroom fixtures appear dated, it did not detract from our hotel experience as they were in good working order. Thanks again, Orchid Hotel. You made our trip to the island very enjoyable.
