Everything was very clean and comfortable. The staff was amazing. They kept the bar next to the pool open after hours because our group was there hanging out and spending money. They were incredibly friendly and helpful. Would gladly stay here again in the future.

Adding one more positive review. Black Orchid gives you the flavor of the interior, while being just outside of Belize City and the airport. We stayed there our last night in Belize to catch our flight the next day and I'm glad we did. it was a wonderful way to end our vacation. We arrived at dusk to the growls... More

The villas are great for privacy and seclusion. They have their own private security and guard dog. We loved our watch dog named Duke, he was so sweet. he escorted us to breakfast and to dinner. The pool area is relaxing but the restaurant could use better AC and the food was a little bland compared to other areas of... More

We are a couple in our forties with two kids ages 10 and 13. We stayed at the Black Orchid for a couple days to unwind after a week on the reef and a week in the jungle. We had had a lot of high energy adventures, and wanted a few quieter days before returning to the states. Our room... More

After spending several days in the San Ignacio area, our group "moved" to the Burrell Boom location to be closer to our other activities (Baboon Sanctuary, Bacab Eco Park, Belize Boy Scouts Camp Oakley ) & eventual departure to the water taxi dock for Ambergris Caye. For those not camping at Camp Oakley, we (the lucky ones!) stayed at the... More

This is my third year to stay at the Black Orchid and every year it gets better. The food, service, and room were first rate. Customer service was highlighted by a warm and friendly staff that was very flexible with changes in my schedule. The gift shop was full of gift options and the gift shop manager was very helpful....

You couldn't ask for a more tranquil and beautiful setting. The rooms were spacious and clean, and we ladies were happily surprised to see rose petals on our beds when we opened the door to our room. We were further impressed by the happy bartender (I didn't get his name) who served us yummy, welcome rum punch. This was followed... More

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
