The Black Orchid Resort is a wonderful hotel located on the Belize River, just a few minutes away from the Belize International Airport. It's a wonderful place to kick off or end your Belizean adventure. Even with its proximity to the airport, 9 miles away, you still fell like you're experiencing the wilderness of Belize. 4 foot iguanas, fast running geckos and beautiful colored birds are a common view from the hammocks hung by the river. We stayed in A building with river views and found the room very clean, with a comfortable bed.
My wife and I found the hotel service exemplary. As an example, after being out sailing in Belize for two weeks, my wife really wanted to have a manicure before heading home.Unfortunately, the hotel aesthetician was on holidays but Beverly the hotel manager came to the rescue. Beverly left the hotel, drove into town and picked up her personal manicurist. Outstanding service! Another example would be the outstanding service we received on a hotel guided tour. We scheduled the Crystal Cave, river tubing and zip lining tour. The hotel provided a guide named Caesar who turned out to be an extremely knowledgeable guide. Cesar carefully named plants and animals, discussed Belizean culture and really encouraged us to take our time and enjoy the tour. We would definitely recommend this hotel and would certainly return given the opportunity.More
