After reading many reviews on Belize City hotels, we opted for Black Orchid, as it seemed the only place you wouldn't be guarenteed to be robbed and mugged.
It's about a 20min drive to the Intl airport, which seemed to be included in our rate (wasnt charged extra). We stayed here for a stress free trip to the airport.
Room was huge, with a huge queen sized bed! Had a great nights sleep.
Service was superb from Joe and Beverly and the rest of the team.
Nice river side location where we saw toucans, iguanas and heard howler monkeys in the distance.
I wished we'd stayed for more time. Not just a one night stop off.
Food was ok.
Pool was welcomed in the mid day heat.
Recommend over staying in town.
