Very clean and very friendly resort. We stayed in a giant one bedroom two bed room. The room had a lovely balcony overlooking the Belize river. The hotel has a great continental breakfast. Also, there are free boats you can take on the river during your stay. The hotel is about 7 miles north of the city. So, be prepared... More

The first thing we heard on getting here is that we had received a free upgrade! Room was great, comfortable, well appointed. The pool was being worked on our whole trip, but it didn't affect us in any way. The front desk arranged three day trips for each day we were there, and they all went off without a hitch.... More

We stayed at the Black Orchid for only 1 night but really liked our time there. The staff was attentive and the food was some of the best that we had in Belize (and cheap!). We canoed the river which was nice and had them take us to the Baboon Sanctuary which was amazing. They charged a lot for the... More

In mid March my wife, teenage daughter and I spent 3 nights here. It was our first visit to the Black Orchid and at the end of our first time in belize.

We just completed our second stay at the Orchid. Just a couple of nights to see a ruin, get organized for our flight back to California and relax. We'd been in Placencia on a Tradewinds catamaran for a week. As usual, the food was great and the staff was as good as they'd been in 2013. We had howlers in... More

We are a very active couple in our late sixties. In February 2013 we stayed a whole week at the Black Orchid and thoroughly enjoyed the many inland tours - Mayan Ruins, zip lining, cave tubing, birding, canoeing on the river - as well as one day on Caye Caulker snorkeling on the reef.
