“Good for airport location”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

We stayed at the Black Orchid Resort the night before our return flight home. It is only 20 minutes from the airport. The beds were comfortable and with the a/c, we had a good night's sleep. We had an okay supper and a pretty good breakfast. We were disappointed that the orange juice was not fresh, nor the milk for the coffee. With oranges in season, we'd had fresh o.j. everywhere and found it a great treat. We did enjoy seeing the howler monkeys and we saw a pair of green parrots, too.

Stayed January 2013, traveled with family

Black Orchid is much more than an alternative to Belize City. It is a tropical paradise with great bird-watching as you kayak down the Belize River or relax by the pool. Rooms are lovely, meals are delicious, and the staff will gladly arrange trips to nearby attractions. We had fun on our cave-tubing adventure, but most of all we just enjoyed spending time at Black Orchid. (We’ve been there several times, and we are eager to go again!)

We chose the Black Orchid based upon the reviews here and we were not disapointed. The staff from the time we were picked up at the aiport to the time we checked out were excellent! Rooms clean, beds comfortable and the food is delicious and resonably priced.
We also booked a trip to Altun ha with them and enjoyed it very much. The guide was very knowledgable and friendly.
Enjoyed our stay, thanks Black Orchid!

I am not one who normally writes reviews. Like so many of us, I read the reviews and use Trip Advisor to make my vacation decisions. The Black Orchid was extraordinary. The service, the grounds, the friendliness of the staff were remarkable. The rooms were large and absolutely spotless. As for the food, it was delicious! Make sure to eat early as most guest eat around 6:30.

The grounds too were amazing. Although small by US resort sizes the pool was perfect to enjoy an afternoon swim or simply read a book on the comfortable lounges. The staff will gladly help you climb into a canoe to enjoy the wonders of the Belize River.

In regards to booking tours through the hotel, please do so. They have the best prices as well as the most knowledgeable staff to guide you to the best tours for your group. In fact we were discouraged from booking a snorkeling tour of Caye Caulker due to rough sees. The hotel truly has your best interests in mind.

A few amazing things to do while staying at Black Orchid include the Lamanai Tour, the Belize Zoo and the Community Baboon Sanctuary. All are amazing and well worth the money!

Enjoy your trip to Belize. Her spirit, culture and shear love of life are infectious. You too will have a smile on your face as you enjoy all Belize has to offer.

Room Tip: All rooms are great!

We had a great stay at the Black Orchid. We arranged free pick up and personally got picked up from the manager Beverly because the other vans were being in use. When she found out we were on our honeymoon she instantly called back to the front desk to set up our room for a surprise we will never forget. We got flower petals all over and spelled welcome on the bed along with a welcome wine. We even got to take the paddle boat and canoe out where we saw iguanas and even a crocodile. It was so exciting. We especially chose this place for the free transfer back to the airport. It made all the difference and really let us lay back and enjoy the last few days we had in Belize.

Lovely stay here 4 nights at the end of our 3 week holiday in Belize. This place is unique and everyone so accommodating. The rooms - we had A2 - overlooing the river- are huge and spotlessly clean. The viewsare amazing along the riverand you have the parrot,iguana's,howler monkeys and loads of other birds for company. The smal pool is ideal to laze away a few hours too. The food in the restaurant is really good - you have to wait for it but at least you know its fresh, and after this is Belize! The shrimp quesadilla on the lunch menu was the best we have ever tasted!
Reception will arrange anything you need in tems of sightseeing. We did a trip to Lamanai and it was worth it even if you just did the boat ride - some amazing sights.
I would recommend this hotel as a first/last stop as its so near the airport and the lovely staff will pick you up and take you back!

Room Tip: A2 was perfect - two large beds/balcony looking over the river and very quiet - even though there is...
