This is a great place to stay if you want to be in that area of Belize. The Office Staff, Service Staff, Wait Staff and Bartender Omar are GREAT! Our shower was cold the entire duration of our 6 night stay. and we did not have wifi connection in our room (didn't work). Also, the kitchen (chef) was not accommodating.... More

We stayed three nights at the Black Orchid after we returned from Punta Gorda. We chose it because we planned to visit the Belize Zoo, and theCommunity Baboon Sanctuary. The location also put us close to the airport. We used their canoe for a few hours, paddling upriver then letting the current take us back downstream. We made an excellent... More

We loved everything about Black Orchid Resort. The staff felt like family immediately, and they were so helpful and attentive. We were so thrilled to have Rudy as our tour guide. He knows so much about Belize, and was great fun to be with. The staff recommended such cool excursions...especially the night-time visit to the Belize zoo and the ziplining/cave... More

While traveling in Belize, we wanted to stay on the mainland to do a couple of tours, however we didn't want to stay in Belize City since we heard such negative things and the hotels there looked outdated. We chose Black Orchid and were happy and I would recommend this place. The rooms and grounds were lovely and very clean.... More

My wife and I visited Belize for our 10-year anniversary. We chose to stay on the mainland a few days and then head to Ambergris for some diving for a few days. We elected to stay with the Black Orchid Resort while on the mainland. My wife and I were both pleased with the hotel, excursions, proximity to Belize City... More

This is our second visit to the Black Orchid Resort. Both visits we traveled to Belize by cruise ship & I booked our group (10 of us) a room at the resort for the day, a meal in the dining room, and massages for all of the ladies in the group. The resort picked us up in their van and... More

Great room with river view. Friendly staff. Near Boon village, between BZE international airport and Belize city. Laid back tropical resort. Restaurant and Bar on site. Not to much close by for alternate meals or nightlife, but it's not a bad base for inland excursions.

Very Nice! Friendly and comfortable stay! Next to Belize river, with nice canoeing available. The food made at the restaurant was super good and the free breakfast is a good deal as well! When I come back to Belize I am gonna come back here!

Beautiful full service hotel. There is no other place close to eat so you need to plan on eating there. Several canoes to use on the Belize River. Clean and peaceful. Not a cheap place to eat or stay though. We had a bad experience with a bartender charging us for complimentary drinks but when I wrote the hotel about... More

Thanks Diana for taking the time to write a review of our property, we truly appreciate it. As stated in my email response to you the bartender on duty misunderstood my instructions to him. Complimentary welcome drinks are a new addition to the complimentary list of services we provide. It was brought to my attention that that bartender was adding... More
