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

I stayed at the Black Orchid Resort for three nights in February 2015. Should I return to Belize, I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. I did not go to Belize for a chaotic city vibe, so staying outside the city in a small resort on the river was perfect for me. I had arranged an airport transfer from the... More

It was a quiet, comfortable, and clean place to stay. The packages are a great value and we had something to do everyday. The guides Rudy and Walter were awesome! They were an endless source of information about the flora, fauna, and cultures of Belize. The staff and manger at the resort were unbelievably friendly and accommodating and after an... More

We completely enjoyed our one-night stay at this lovely resort! It was the perfect way to spend our final night in Belize after an amazing two weeks of adventure and fun. We had come from a rugged camping trip out to an atoll and it was wonderful to be greeted with a welcome cocktail, an infinity pool, air-conditioning, and most... More

From the pickup at BZE,the staff were truly lovely and couldn't do enough for us, Dryanne at the check in desk,I believe the manager, was delightful and answered every question we had and made sure we were comfortable there, even to the point of putting martini glasses in our room on request....Omar the bartender was entertainment to the max, he...

This resort is very well located for viewing some attractions like Alton Ha, Crooked Tree, the Baboon reserve , and the Bacab Eco Park. The facility itself is good with a small pool and eating facility overlooking the Belize River, upon which we canoed. The staff was uniformly friendly and outgoing -- pretty much the case everywhere we stayed. We... More

DO NOT STAY HERE! This place is not worth the price paid. We had reserved the villa and was extremely disappointed. Little did we know that the villa is a two minute walk away from the resort. The villa was extremely run down and very old looking. There is no cement sidewalk to the villa entrance and you have to... More

I take this opportunity to apologize for the poor conditions you found in our 3 bedroom villa across the street from the main resort and have taken the necessary steps to remedy them. The entire villa is presently being renovated inside and out and new furniture, a jacuzzi and barbeque grill has been added. As to your experience with low... More

Pretty hotel close the the International Airport in Belize City. I was congested so I didn't notice while we were there, but when we arrived at our next hotel and I unpacked some clothes, they had a strong musty smell. I thought the food was good. It has a pool at ground level. There was another small pool on the... More

I have no way of knowing how, when, where or why your clothes picked up a musty smell but can assure you that none of our rooms are musty. You stated yourself that you did not notice any musty smell at this resort hotel and it is patently unfair for you to label us that way. My wife and I... More
