“Better than you would expect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2012

Driving along the western highway just east of San Ignacio you will see signs for the Orange gift shop. The owner must have a few connections to get things so well marked. If you stop at the gift shop you will think it is just one of those tourist stops for the cruise buses, which it may be. However, behind the shop is a hidden gem of a restaurant. Since the Chinese have established a dominance in the grocery business, they have also had an influence on some menu choices. The Orange does a great job of blending the Carribean and Asian flavors on one menu and all of it comes out very well for the price. There is a well stocked bar. Try a Belikin Stout if you like dark beer. The hotel may not seem to be a destination place but it would be a great choice if you needed a home base for adventures on your own or booking with independent guide services. This is the best place to eat between Belmopan and San Ignacio.

“Great for food, gifts, and play area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2012

Stopped here on our way to San Ignacio. Got lots of souveniers and found that their prices are pretty good, but beware - no negotiating. Had lunch and it was great. Our girls had a blast playing in the play house, slide, and swing. Lovely place.

Stopped again on our way out and lunch was good again. I wasn't crazy about the burger, but everything else was great. Again, the kids had a super time at the play area.

Nice place.

“Best souvenir shop in Belize, and great place for food and drinks too.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2012

Orange is quite the place. They make souvenirs of all shapes and sizes. They must be the biggest souvenir shop in all of Belize too. It's not tacky at all. They have a woodworking shop, and produce some amazing pieces. They have an art gallery with many famous Belizean artists represented. There have an extensive collection of Jorge Landero's work too.

They usually have a lunch special, and it's good food. Nice ambiance too. Be sure and check out the slate carvings in the bathrooms for a good laugh.
