After reading the many exceptional reviews about this hotel, I booked it for our last night in Belize. The resort is not bad, nor great…….it's average. The location is nice - right on the Belize River with lots of foliage, flowers and monkeys in the trees. The rooms were fine, but had a "tired" feel to them - as does the entire resort. The pool had lots of leaves and debris in it and there were no pool towels available (they were being washed). The wi-fi was down the entire length of our stay. The food at the restaurant was good and we did have the complimentary continental breakfast, but after looking for someone to help, we ended up searching through the cupboards and making our own pot of coffee.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Belize has such contrasts from the beaches to the jungle to the Mayan ruins, from the rivers to the Cayes, a good base from which to see it all, is the Black Orchid Resort on the banks of the Belize Old River on the outskirts of Burrell Boom Village, just fifteen minutes from the international airport so it’s easy to reach and easy to leave from. Just a short distance away from Belize City and the airport, the resort is also within about an hour’s drive of most of the country’s mainland attractions, making it a convenient launching point for your vacation adventures.
