Otres Orchid successfully covers the budget to flashpacker range with a choice of rooms or chalets in a pleasant garden setting and a good location on one of the prettier sections of Otres 1 directly opposite the ocean.

Orchid announces its rustic style with an old wooden ox cart out front followed by a spacious deck cafe area liberally strewn with—surprise, surprise—lots of orchids. The restaurant was undergoing a makeover when we visited so should be looking spick and span for high season.

Even during rainy months the garden to the rear was immaculate and well-tended and of course keeping the lush vegetation under control also keeps the mosquito population down. Paving stone paths lead past the orderly array of chalets which, in keeping with the overall resort are also clean, simple and well-maintained. The chalets have traditional bamboo walls and woven roofs and each one comes with a balcony, hammock and rattan table and chairs.

Interiors are varnished bamboo which allows the breeze through helping to keep the rooms cool but means your mosquito net is essential so do check for holes before taking the room. The only catch, as with any wooden/bamboo bungalow, is that along with the breezes you’ll also hear pretty much anything your neighbours are up to (and they you) and chalets are quite close together.

Orchid is also quite close to some of the beachfront bars including the all-night Corner Bar so whichever room you choose ear-plugs could be useful. Hot water, ensuite bathrooms are very good with fully tiled walls and when we visited all new fittings. Furniture is sparse or uncluttered but the bamboo-base beds are comfy and clean.

They also offer large family rooms with two double beds in a two-storey wooden building and air-con versions of their chalets with wood panel walls. The former are a very good deal price-wise although the latter get a bit pricey in high season. There’s helpful staff, all the usual travel info, a pleasant eating and drinking area and good value rooms so in our books that make Otres Orchid an all-round excellent choice.
