We were very pleased with the personal attention, genuineness, friendliness, and hospitality of Christine and her staff. The Belizean meals were excellent, as was the service. The grounds are beautiful, and as others have said, you feel as though you're in the jungle, even though the resort is located right off of the Western Highway. Accommodations were clean and adequate, but very basic and sparse. The guide, Alfredo, who met us at the airport was excellent...very knowledgable, kind, helpful, and spoke excellent English. We saw iguana in the sanctuary on-site, and enjoyed the tour of the grounds. I personally wouldn't choose to make this my home base in Belize, because there is so much to see in the other areas of the country, and all of the eco-lodges we stayed at had similar tours (as mentioned by other guests) available. I do believe the pricing was better at Orchid Garden, however. Although there is what is called a "natural" swimming hole on the grounds, it was not set-up for swimming/sunbathing, and I would personally be reluctant to use it. If the furniture and buildings were upgraded, and there was a useable pool available I'd give it a 5, based on service & hospitality alone, but otherwise not.
