A beautiful resort located on a beautiful navigable river, which is famous for canoe races like Ruta Maya, and horse racing. The Thompsons were wonderful hosts. Doug Thompson went well beyond his duties as owner and host to make our trip a wonderous event. Even to the staging of a bonfire and two grills for us to BBQ with. His... More

This is a lovely hotel set far from eating alternatives but providing meals at very reasonable prices. The rooms are pleasant and the restaurant overlooks a river buzzing with bird life. The manager is a laid back, very approachable man who obviously works hard to maintain good standards in an environment that is not easy. Sadly, we had almost constant... More

On the Belize river, Clean and great food . I feel this is a place you have to stay while in Belize. We stayed when we arrived here then traveled the country then stayed again bedore we left. You feel like family here. They have tours to every thing from the resrt.

Our group has stayed there for years and the rooms are always clean and comfortable. The staff is very friendly. The food is always great, especially the breakfast. Ask for the Johnny cakes or fried jacks with honey.

We stayed our last night here before flying home, after a week-long catamaran trip. It was a really odd place in the middle of nowhere. On the river - there were lots of large iguanas in the trees, and while we didnt notice the howler monkeys during the day, we sure heard them at night. There were kayaks that we... More

While eating dinner here, I overheard a mother vigorously defend Motel 6 (a chain of budget hotels in the US) to her whiny children. It wasn't hard to see why -- the Black Orchid Resort is basically a Belizean interpretation of a Motel 6. It's clean, functional, friendly, and yet extremely basic -- to the point where it feels barren.... More

Excellent place to go from planes and travel to feeling like your in Belize! Rooms are quiet. Iguanas and birds abound. The Belize river is scenic from your porch. Charming for sure. We went to the Belize Zoo and that was a great introduction!

The Black Orchid features decent rooms, especially for Belize. The breakfast buffet is pretty basic as well -it won't win many awards. What it does have, though, is a tip top staff that really will value your stay. We stayed in some pretty high end places that boasted better rooms and more amenities - but the Black Orchid featured the... More

Our first trip to Belize. Omar, in particular, was really helpful but all the staff were nice. Big, clean rooms. Nice pool to cool down in after a lot of time traveling. Breakfast was good. Selection of fruit, French toast and more was booed. Main menu in the evening was a bit generic, but ok. Fusion salad was interesting!
