We arrived Holy Saturday afternoon and stayed in a 2 bedroom family house, which accommodates 6 people. 1. Nothing is as nice as is seen in the pictures advertised. There is no sandy beach. The pool is extremely small. The grass beside our house needed to be cut and the leaves raked. You cannot access the pier at night because there are no lights anywhere. 2.We had to ask for towels even though a "family house" should come with enough towels for a small family. At one point one of the employees said we'd have to pay for extra towels. 3. We were unable to use the pool, which is very small, because it was always crowded with day guests. When they left, it was always dirty and it appeared that they did not clean it at all. 4. They allow pets but I couldn't have my little dog outside because day guests had their aggressive dogs on the compound. 5. Flies were everywhere like swarms of bees waiting to attack. Even inside our house! Thousands of them covered the floors and walls. You wake up to this in the morning! 6. There were no cleaning services! Even though we were there from Saturday to Monday, no one came to change our sheets, towels or take out the garbage. 7. The dining table had a lot of cobwebs and the curtains are dirty and stained. There are a few other complaints (ac remote batteries are dead etc.) but those are the major issues. I am well traveled. I've been to many many resorts throughout Belize, which have always been satisfactory to exceptional based on the prices paid. For the exorbitant cost of the family house, I expected FAR better. It does not even meet the standard of being satisfactory. Also, I thought the resort would make the hours of traveling there worth it but it definitely did not. I am extremely disappointed and dissatisfied with my stay at Orchid Bay. I would never recommend that place to anyone.

Did not stay at the resort, but drove there for the water. It was a long dusty road, 2 ferries, but even those offered water and river views on the drive. It was a hot day, but the water and the view of the bay made it all worth it. We hung out on the pier, swam, drank beers, and even saw dolphins. It's a great place for family fun, the water is not deep, great for lounging.

Orchid Bay Belize is located on the south side of the Corozal Bay in Belize; outside of Corozal town anywhere from 22 to 45+ minutes (depending on the location of the two hand-cranked ferries when you arrive at them and how hot it is outside for the ferry workers!). The road can be from decent compared to Belize roads (that means bad country roads for most others) to bad Belize roads depending on the time of year. However, once you get there you will find a very pretty, very quiet placed to enjoy just getting away. There is an onsite restaurant with a swimming pool and activities. There are many types of accommodations including bay front casitas, a bed and breakfast, and many private homes. If you have a vehicle then you can explore local ruins and out of the way destinations such as manatee breeding areas in the lagoons nearby. Tarpon have been known to be caught in the waters right in front of the bay and you can always sail or paddle board. It's a bit out of the way, but for any adventurer, it's worth the effort. If your local; go for the weekend for some peace and privacy.
