Location of the resort from BZE international airport is perfect-15 min. drive. Upon arrival at the resort we immediately felt relaxed and pampered. Our room was river facing with great views of the river and the pool. Quiet and comfortable and everyone who works there is happy and eager to help in any way necessary. Wish we stayed more than...

From the time of our arrival, we felt welcomed! Our room was ready - and even upgraded without asking. It was clean and had nice touches - like flower petals on the bed - that showed someone cared. A free rum punch drink was part of the introductory tour. Beverly, the manager, and the whole staff was helpful at every... More

In my career I have been at five star resorts all lover the world. Staff here go beyond the usual professionalism to engage you as family. The tranquil and beautiful tropical environment is enhanced by the scintillating songs of varied birds during the day and the soft sound of the flowing Belize river. Rooms were elegantly furnished and maintained daily.... More

A great location, close to the airport, zoo and baboon sanctuary. Beautiful grounds and an added treat to hear howler monkeys close by. We had a room in the new complex and it was wonderful. The room was immaculate, very large with seating inside and outside on the porch. The restaurant was wonderful and we enjoyed several really great meals... 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
