Booked this hotel for our last night in Belize because it was near the airport and had good reviews. The hotel fully met our expectations and we spent the late afternoon by the pool chatting to other guests and enjoying the beautiful view of the river. The room was a good size with 2 double beds and efficient air con....

Dear Nichole and Andrew, I was not surprised when I read your review of our property, having carefully investigated your complaints on the night in question and receiving feedback from both of you I can only conclude that you are being disingenuous with this review.

We stayed here at the end of a 2 week trip through Mexico, Guatemala and Belize. We generally travel cheaply and often stay in basic places as we are out sightseeing all day. After being miserable for numerous days in San Ignacio and Tikal without air-conditioning in 100 degrees I decided to splurge and stay here to finish out the...

The property is only a few miles from the airport but is very far removed from the atmosphere of the airport or Belize City. I would not describe the town as charming, as I have seen in some books, but it is certainly not gussied up. The property is very well maintained. The pool is small but nice and the...

Best place to go when you arrive in Belize or when you leave. The service is awesome. People are nice, always looking for your comfort. The restaurant is good and there is a nice pool by the river. I loved it!

I had researched a number of properties in Belize, and booked Black Orchid for the first three nights of our stay. We were in a more budget room with a very short walk to the pool and river area. Even the "budget" room was big and comfortable, with everything that we would need. The room was quiet at night, and...
