We only used the restaurant but I can recommend the " Belize Lunch" which was substantial and really tasty whilst not being too spicy. The service was good and the prices not bad at all. The resort seemed to be very nice ,on a river bank with modern accommodation and a lovely pool.

Thank you so much for your review, we totally appreciate it and take your remarks seriously. No we can't please everyone be we can certainly do a better job controlling the music.

We chose to spend our last night in Belize at the Black Orchid Resort, mainly because it is located close to the airport and offers a free shuttle to the airport. Although it doesn't look like much from the parking area, the back side of the resort is beautiful. The bar and pool overlook the Belize River and it's very... More

Summary: This resort seemed to be catering to the party crowd with free rum punch and a blasting latin beat- but we were able to enjoy the peace of the environment after asking twice to turn the music down and changing rooms. The receptionist at the Black Orchid took us to a beautiful room (A1) which was closest to the... More

Stayed here at the end of our Belize visit after a trip to the cayes and are very glad we did. Rooms are large, very quiet and comfortable. I wouldn't want to stay here for an... More

We stayed one night at the Black Orchid the night before we left to come home. The staff is very friendly and the free drinks were a plus. The room was very comfortable and clean. The hotel is a good place to rest and relax.
