My husband has Parkinson's Disease, and I had many questions on accessability and accommodations for some of the tours we wished to take, with some modifications. The staff answered my e-mails and were very helpful with their suggestions. We reserved five nights with the resort. Unfortunately, about two weeks before we were to leave, my husband's deep brain stimulator stopped... More

Black Orchid Resort was the last stop for us on our 11 day adventure to Belize. This was our fourth location and it did not fail to end our vacation with a pleasant memory. The room we had was beautiful. We were in A4 and it felt like we were in the tree tops. It was wonderful to go out... More

My wife and I stayed at the Black Orchid the first week in April 2014. We booked the all inclusive package including tours and meals. Our main goal was to have an adventurous vacation that would allow us to experience Belize and the resort fit our needs perfectly. When we first arrived we were a little reserved. As this was...

Black Orchid was wonderful! The grounds were beautiful and the room was clean and very comfortable. The staff was very accommodating and helped us arrange day trips to the Mayan ruins, zip-lining and cave tubing. We just told them where and when we wanted to go and they took care of the rest. All of the staff at the hotel... More

We stayed at the Black Orchid Resort for six nights in mid-March. It was better than we ever expected. The area is beautiful, quiet, and well maintained. The resort staff are very gracious and welcoming. Any time Beverly, the manager, passed us on the property, she would greet us, ask how things were going, and if there was anything we... More

I liked this place a lot, but it does have a few drawbacks. First, the pluses. Their biggest asset is their staff. I had booked a complete package, including airport pickup, daily breakfast and dinner, and daily sightseeing. Everything was arrange perfectly, from airport pickup to airport dropoff at the end. Guides on the hotel staff were all very knowledgeable... More

My wife and I visited the Black Orchid from 12/24/13 to 1/2/14. We found the Black Orchid to be a great "home base" for going out on adventures. The resort is well-situated to permit short drives to Mayan ruins, cave-tubing, zip-lining, and catching the boat to go snorkling or visiting one of the islands. The accommodations suited our needs perfectly... More

After reading the many exceptional reviews about this hotel, I booked it for our last night in Belize. The resort is not bad, nor great…….it's average. The location is nice - right on the Belize River with lots of foliage, flowers and monkeys in the trees. The rooms were fine, but had a "tired" feel to them - as does... More

We stayed here one night and really enjoyed it! Beautiful location along the Belize river, and an evening chorus by the howler monkeys! Clean, relaxing, with very attentive staff and attractive rooms.

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights at the end of our two week Belize holiday. It was beautiful. We stayed in a deluxe river view suite, in their newest building and it was heavenly. They truly out did themselves. The grounds were magnificent and the rooms were above and beyond clean, beautiful and comfortable. Our building had... More
