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

I have been to Belize at least 6 times and I can honestly say that the 3 times I have stayed at the Black Orchid is by far the best. The resort is somewhat secluded but it only takes a few minutes to ride into Belize City. Because of it's location you get the early morning and late afternoon jungle... More

We stayed here twice on this last trip to Belize. It's 15 minutes by car to the airport and out of the City. Very clean and a great friendly staff who goes out of their way to help. The continental breakfast is included, as are in room coffee & fridge. We had a nice balcony that over looked the pool.... More

For our Anniversary vacation we dreamed of Belize and the Mayan ruins. Rudy picked us up from the airport and upon arriving at the resort we questioned if we had made the right choice. However, the resort has more to offer than meets the eye. The staff was wonderful and always smiling and friendly. We went during their slow season,... More

We booked this resort last minute, as arrived into Belize early. The booking was easy and they arranged pickup from the airport. Our driver,Rudy,gave us the local history and fun facts on the 20 minute drive from BZE airport. The check in process was easy and they carried our bags up to our room for us. The room, itself, was... More

We booked this resort to complete our last few days of our scuba and jungle excursions while in Belize. We were upgraded upon check in which was a pleasant surprise. The rooms and linens were clean but very outdated and in need of an overhaul, especially the bathrooms. As I said the location was great. The resort is on the... More

I take this opportunity to thank you for your honest review. I here you and I get it. We are in the process of updating our canoes and kayaks as well as our bicycles. We have been working to improve the continental breakfast which seem to be a hit or miss situation depending on the wait staff on duty. I... More

Just returned from a five day stay at the Black Orchid. If you're looking for a place to relax, this is it! We were not interested in taking any tours, just spending time at the pool, relaxing and soaking up the sun. My one complaint concerns the pool. It's very difficult for older people to get in and out of.... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review it help us tremendously to improve our facilities. I will personally look to find the appropriate stainless steel stairs to assist seniors to access the pool. You may have noticed that we recently modified our walk ways to provide wheelchair access to the restaurant and bar. We of course is... More

My girlfriend and I visited Black Orchid where we were pleasantly surprised by all the amenities this place has to offer. Our room was beautifully designed with wonderful wood work. The bathrooms were spacious and cleanly. The restaurant services was great along with the food. We went to the bar after eating and had some of the best mixed drinks... More

The Black Orchid is a peaceful place to stay if you've just arrived or are soon leaving Belize. It's a 15 minute drive from the Belize airport (they also offer a free shuttle) and a good alternative to staying in the crime-ridden horror that is Belize City. It has nice grounds and a decent restaurant, It's right on the river... More
