5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2013 via mobile

The black orchid resort helped provide a vacation we will never forget because of the location, people, and activities. From the moment we were picked up from the airport by anthony we never stopped smiling. We Stayed 4 night and 3 days on the black orchid resort package. The food was fantastic, the zip line, cave tubing, and maya tour was amazing. The people who gave the tours went the extra mile and were 100% safe and knowledgeable. Anthony knows so much and we recommend him as a driver and guide at the resort. The girls up front were always nice, and always helped quickly with any question. Kurt was great at the bar and helped make our meals complete with smiles. The resort goes over the top for all guests we saw and received by the employees. I feel we became family and we can't wait to go back. Hurry and go to the resort and ask for Anthony , Kurt, and the girls upfront !

Stayed June 2013, traveled as a couple

Staying at the black orchid was a perfect way to start our honeymoon. The staff was friendly and attentive in the restaurant. Staying along the Belize river was beauitfully serene. Ryan and Eder are great drivers and provided info about where we were going and what we were seeing. it is very close to the Belize zoo which is a must.

Because we are stuck inside. The Mosquitos are soo fierce we cannot go out. Would love to explore the grounds, sit outside but we are having to watch out the windows. Seems like they could spray, screen the porches, do something to allow a little freedom on the grounds. We have been in other areas of belize where they do spray. We have tried citronella candles, burning mosquito coils and bug spray. Beautiful place but don't know if we would return. Possibly at other times of the year it would be more enjoyable. Continental breakfast is pretty sparse. Sometimes cereal but no milk, or milk is warm from sitting out. Juice sometimes. Small amount of fruit

Thank you for your review. Unfortunately you were here in a week that we were inundated with a plague of mosquitoes. It is not unusual to have mosquitoes this time of year but the volume and size that you experienced is highly unusual. We requested assistance from the health department and they came out and sprayed the entire village. That helped tremendously and brought us much relief.

The best thing about the hotel is the location near the airport. We stayed at several other resorts in Belize during our stay and found the BLack Orchid to be the most costly with the least to offer. We stayed in the "cabin", which was basic at best. The food was fine, but nothing to write home about. If you need a place to stay before or after a flight, you might want to consider the Black Orchid.

We had a very nice overnight stay at the Black Orchid. The beautiful Miss Bev was especially attentive and friendly. We had a fun tour of Altun Ha with Tony and Miss Anna on the afternoon of our arrival. It was especially fun to talk with Tony about living in Belize during the ride. We ate in the restaurant and enjoyed the continental breakfast. The shuttle to and from the international airport was appreciated. Rooms were large, air conditioned and scrupulously clean. The only downside was the expense, which seemed somewhat high.

We stayed here one night but wish we would have booked one or two more nights. The staff was extremely professional and friendly. Room was clean and had AC. We liked paddle boating down the river. Heard, but didn't see the Howler Monkeys. Quiet and well kept grounds. Room service.

We ended our honeymoon at the Black Orchid. We had a great time there! Wonderful staff, nice rooms and good food. We came in on a Saturday and were leaving on a Monday. We had wanted to do a tour of the city and Belikin factory, but the factory is closed on the weekend. So the front desk ladies offered to have a driver take us in to the city, show us around and take us shopping. Anthony was our driver and was AMAZING! Friendly, helpful and SO knowledgeable! We went to Altun Ha the next day and Ann was our tour guide and she made it such a fantastic time. We decided to go to the tattoo expo with some new friends and Anthony ended up being our driver again. He made our trip in to and around town so perfect! Definitely would recommend asking for Anthony if you're going on any tours or need a driver when you're there.

Room Tip: We had a room facing the river and it was nice and quiet
