I just returned from the Black Orchid and must say that it was a very pleasurable experiance. The staff was very friendly and attentive to our needs. We had breakfast two mornings and it was tasty and served promptly. The lime juice was wonderful. The pool was a welcome relief from tired muscles and the quiet atmosphere made for a very relaxing visit. If you are looking for action, this is not the place. It was just what we needed. The entire staff was exceptional, but the person who stood out was Beverly. She is a gem. She made sure that we were taken care of, and even drove us to our cave tubing adventure. We had a wonderful time with her. We rented a car, which we later found out was the owners SUV ( he was out of town ) and went over to the San Ignagcio area and visited Mayan ruins. The only thing I missed was a coffee pot in the room, but the room was spacious. well decorated and had a very nice patio/deck area. So, I guess the lack of a coffee pot could be overlooked since the restaurant was only a few steps away. I would recommend the Black Orchid especially for those starting or ending their trips to Belize. You won't regret it.
