As an alternative to Belize City, the Black Orchid is beautifully located in a peaceful, natural environment next to the river. My room was spacious and well-appointed. I was offered a complimentary rum punch at the pool side bar on the evening I arrived. The...More

The hotel was exactly what we were looking for in regards to location. It was away from Belize city but still close enough that you could get to the airport quite quickly. The hotel offered a free shuttle and that process went very smoothly. The...More

Nice hot showers comfortable rooms and all the amenities. What a way to end our visit to Belize. The river views are lovely form the bar and many excursions launch from the dock. Very convenient to the airport.

PegLongenecker
Hi Ramya, My husband and I will be at the resort for one night, arriving at the Belize airport on Dec. 19 at 12:50. We will need to go back to the airport the following day to meet our son and his family. Could you please advise us on the best way to plan our time (one afternoon and one morning) at the resort? Assuming we would make it to the resort by 2:00 PM and leave the next day by 12:00 noon, what activities are available for us to do? Could we hire a guide for a nature walk on the morning of the 20th? Would it be feasible to take a trip to Altun Ha after we arrive in the afternoon or the next morning, and is there a way to get there from the resort? How do we contact a shuttle for pick up at the airport? We are hoping that we can avoid renting a car and still have the flexibility to do some things in your area. Thanks so much for your help!! Peg
