As a stalwart on Otres beach, Otres Orchid Beach Resort’s history dates back to when the stretch of sand was little more than a dust track dotted with a handful of wooden shacks. Having undergone several renovations since then, the resort comprises a few rooms and several wooden bungalows, from basic through to AC-equipped, set in leafy tropical gardens a one-minute walk from the beach.
