We regret that we only stayed one night at this lovely place! We booked this for our last night in Belize to be close to the airport without being in the city. We are so happy we did. The morning we were taken to the airport we enjoyed waking up to the sound of howler monkeys, went for a great... More

Yes we do offer a free shuttle from the international airport to and from our resort and no we do not do the same to Belize city which is where the water taxi is located. And yes we had a 30 minute delay in getting a vehicle to transfer you to San Ignacio so we hired a taxi to take... More

I stayed here two days ago with my boyfriend/rooommate/common law husband. He was flying out the next day. This place is wonderful. I've been traveling to belize for decades and it is always a hassle getting to the airport easily the morning of the flight out. Belize city is dirty, noisy and not very safe. Black Orchid Resort (BOR) is... More

We stayed two nights and was immediately pampered from the moment we arrived. Kenny picked us up from the airport, giving us informative tidbits during the drive and answering our questions. Fruit punch was ready for us when we arrived to whet our parched throats during check-in. Kenny pointed out the whooping of howler monkeys as he helped us with... More

Hotels everywhere, please take note - this is how guests should be treated! This is an adventure hotel with howlers monkeys in the trees, crocs in the river, iguanas on the lawn, and finding the place with our rented car was a challenge at dusk. The rooms are comfortable, the food was a delightful surprise but it was the excellent... More

Many good things to say about Black Orchid, but one of the strongest aspects, for nature lovers especially, is the ability to view monkeys in their natural habitat. We saw a few on the first day and a whole family with 2 babies, right on the property! The river is nice and they have canoes and kayaks for your enjoyment.... More

This hotel was pretty and comfortable. The pool is nice and the food we had was all really good. The grounds were well cared for and beautiful. The staff was quick to tend to any problems we found. The air-conditioner in our room wasn't working properly, but it got fixed.

We have stayed at this property three times. Our stays were more about the location than the resort, however, the management continues to make improvements every year. If you go ask for a room in Building T (better river views, small pool on the roof). Food and drinks are good, not to die for, but good considering your location. They... More

We visited Belize with our two teenagers and found this to be a great hotel, 15 minutes from the airport and they provide free airport transportation. Rooms were clean and nice and the staff were very friendly and helpful. We stayed here twice on our way in and out of Belize. The grounds are beautiful and we did some kayaking... More
