This hotel is pretty awsome, the rooms are elegant in the island way: great porch, wonderful decorating touches, fine location on the Belize River. The restaurant is something else though. Though the service is pretty good, in the "I want to please you" sense, the food is not good. I had driven from Chetumal and didn't get a chance to... More

BlackOrchidResort, Owner at Black Orchid Resort, responded to this review

Thank you for your review of my resort which I personally take very seriously. My delay in response to this review is a result of my traveling and having the need to discuss with the folks on duty what actually happened as I know that all the seafood in the restaurant are fresh. This time of year is no exception.... More

We stayed there for 11 days. I choose them because of their rating and location. Soon as we got through customs, they were waiting for us. Loaded are bags and headed to the resort. On the way to resort the driver asked if we need to stop at a local store, we did. Arrived at the resort and was meant... More

We were warmly welcomed by the owner as we drove on to the property, he then escorted us to the check in desk where we got our room keys and a basic introduction of the staff whom we all learned to be very helpful. Inside the room was quite clean and comfortable and it had a breath taking view of... More

Many travelers to Belize want to stay near the airport the night before they leave...in case the bus breaks down, or the boat doesn't show up. We've been scouting the area for a while and found Black Orchid Resort. What a find! Tucked along the Belize river, only 20 minutes from the airport, there is no other hotel or B&B... More

This was our first visit to Belize and we stayed at The Black Orchid Resort for a total of 7 nights. Being more of a city gal, I was a little leery at first because the resort is away from the city, on a river in a jungle setting. I have to say, it was one of the best experiences... More

I picked the Black Orchid based on the pictures provided by trip advisor .It did not disappoint. What I did not know was what the staff would be like. They were the perfect blend of professionalism and friendliness. They met our every need with efficiency and a warm smile. I want to pay a special compliment to Caesar who took... More

This was our most fun and adventurous vacation this year.The Black Orchid resort should not be missed for several reasons.The staff goes way beyond what you would normally expect to insure that you have a great time. For example my sister and I decided we wanted to go fishing despite the fact that we are city girls. They not only... More

although hotels are overall pricey in Belize for the standards you get versus the US or Europe, the Black Orchid was a nice surprise. The owners are super nice and service oriented; we were on a late boat trip and were starving - he called the restaurant from the boat on his mobile so that we can have something ready... More

We came to the Black Orchid after staying at Kaana resort. 2 adults and 2 kids – disappointed after a magical stay in Guatemala. What a pleasant surprise. Finally, a place in Belize that tourism has not spoiled. Finally, no more policies and how best to make money. But rather, how to make your stay enjoyable and fun. The grounds... More

It was nothing less than pure pleasure and satisfaction staying there. If it wasn't because of our family's expectation to be around them most of the time,I would make this... More
