This is my second time here for lunch. Both times I have been met with great hospitality here and good food. I would like to come stay overnight in the future as the ambience is very pretty. As getting to river for boat ride, my wheelchair companion was lifted and carried to boat by resort employees.

I was looking to do more tourist things in Belize and I decided to start off at the Black Orchid resort to relax. I was pleasantly surprised by how happy the reception was for my arrival and I appreciated their hospitality (and free room upgrade). Dane the bartender introduced us to panty rippers (a popular rum cocktail in Belize) and...

Our flights were delayed by weather so we needed to find a place to stay near the airport for one night before catching our connecting flight. Black Orchid offered a free shuttle to and from the airport, tasty restaurant, beautiful facility, continental breakfast and spacious accommodations. We arrived after dark, so it was a treat to wake up the next...

This is a very nice property, quite modern and clean. The staff is very friendly and do their best to be helpful. However sometimes they don't seem to have current information on the tours they arrange. The place is a bit isolated (like most resorts) but the drivers are very cheery and competent to take you wherever you want to...

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.

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...
