Stayed on our last night in Belize to be close to the airport. Pleasantly surprised at how comfortable the Black Orchid Resort is. The restaurant offered a wide selection of food. The bar was great and had live music provided by a local band that was just right for the setting. Our room had the best shower of the four...

We stayed here just one night, right before leaving Belize after a week's stay on an off shore island. Although the staff was nice, and the room was very well appointed, we found the resort to be over priced and a bit run down. I had heard that they offer great excursions, and had wanted to do one of the...

We only stayed at Black Orchid for one night, as a stop-over upon our arrival in Belize before heading to San Ignacio. They picked us up at the airport and it took about 15 minutes to get to the resort. It's a beautiful setting overlooking the Belize River. The room was spacious and clean, with a balcony overlooking the river....

After arriving in Belize late at night and never having been there before, getting to the Black Orchid Resort was comforting and relaxing. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was delicious with the best fruit ever. We had a great time and would recommend everyone to stay there.

A few small touches here and there would tip the scales for me to 5 stars. Overall, our stay here for 3 days over Christmas was lovely and would recommend this as a great addition to round out any trip to Belize. It was quiet and slow while we were there which was nice, but we wouldn't have minded a...

We had an outstanding experience at Black Orchid Resort. We stayed here for a night prior to heading to San Pedro. Resort was gorgeous and you felt like you were in middle of rain forest despite being a convenient twenty minutes from the airport. Douglas the owner was very friendly and treating us like family while here. He picked us...

This is my second time here for lunch. Both times I have been met with great hospitality here and good food. I would like to come stay overnight in the future as the ambience is very pretty. As getting to river for boat ride, my wheelchair companion was lifted and carried to boat by resort employees.

I was looking to do more tourist things in Belize and I decided to start off at the Black Orchid resort to relax. I was pleasantly surprised by how happy the reception was for my arrival and I appreciated their hospitality (and free room upgrade). Dane the bartender introduced us to panty rippers (a popular rum cocktail in Belize) and...

Our flights were delayed by weather so we needed to find a place to stay near the airport for one night before catching our connecting flight. Black Orchid offered a free shuttle to and from the airport, tasty restaurant, beautiful facility, continental breakfast and spacious accommodations. We arrived after dark, so it was a treat to wake up the next...

Was able to book last minute. Don't believe the internet about vacancy. Call directly. Rooms are nice and clean. Nice pool. Restaurant on resort is very good and had many very good meals there. The front desk is great in helping plan excursions and this helped us in planning our week. You can arrive with no idea or plan and...
