I was very satisfied with my stay at Black Orchid. I was vacationing in Belize for my 40th birthday and was warmly welcomed by all of staff and even found a "happy birthday" message spelled out on my bed in flower petals upon my arrival and for my actual birthday. The resort itself is lovely and has a nice laidback,...

This was a treat. With only a one night layover between resorts and the flight back to the states we didn't expect such a great experience. The people were very friendly, including the front office, the bar tender and the waitresses. The room was large and clean with an in-room WiFi router for high-speed connectivity. It had a good safe...

Rooms were very nice, service was great, food was good, nice pool, great river view. I like to take a run in the AM and this place was much nicer than the normal "city" hotel, I was able to run in the country side, experiencing the local rural scenes - it was great!

The resort is about 45 minutes outside Belize City and offers a free airport shuttle which is a nice add-on. It is a wonderful destination to visit. The rooms are big and clean and the staff very helpful. The food is very good but way too expensive for the quality. The evening wait staff are excellent and caring and helpful,...

Advantages: 15min from the airport. Nice grounds. Disadvantages: Motel 6 style rooms at a premium price of $180 US per night. The Wi-Fi did not work well in the rooms only in the lobby. The cable TV did not work. High price for basic meals like chicken and pork starting at $40 Belize.

Starting off and ending your visit to Belize at the Black Orchid is the smart way to have a delightful time. The serenity of the Black Orchid was just what the "Doctor" ordered. Thanks to Beverly, the Manager, and Dane and Kimberley, in the restaurant, for making our stay a memorable and pleasant one.

We just returned from our 6th consecutive visit to Black Orchid. Perfect home base for our annual Belize trips. There is always something new, constantly upgrading and refreshing. Good clean rooms, good AC, very accommodating staff and management. We've already booked for next year.
