Staff were very nice, loved our tour guide Rudy, spent 2 tours with him and he was the best. Beds very comfortable, rooms clean and peaceful. Will return again the next...

I stayed at Black Orchid Resort immediately following Hurricane Earl. Though the electricity was out in Burrell Boom, the resort's generator provided reliable power and much appreciated air conditioning! The staff was cheerful and wonderfully accommodating, even putting off post-hurricane clean-up work near my room until they were sure I was already awake. The food was nice, especially the fish...

We were headed inland and arrived in the afternoon so we wanted to stay near the airport. Belize City wasn't highly recommended so we headed 30 minutes inland to the Black Orchid Resort. Boy are we glad we did. Set right on the Old Belize River, it was gorgeous, clean, cool and a perfect first night. Many of the people...

We selected BOR based on Trip Advisor reviews and we found them to be extremely accurate. We are an easy-going adventure travel family and really had no interest in hitting Belize City. The jungle/river atmosphere at BOR was just right for us. Pre-planning and booking was very easy via email, staff was super quick in responding and very helpful. We...

This resort is simply lovely. The staff is wonderful, very accommodating, willing to do whatever is necessary to make you comfortable. It's so convenient to the airport and to cave tubing and the Baboon Sanctuary. The rooms are spacious, immaculate, with gorgeous wood furnishings and great air conditioning. This place is just very welcoming in all aspects. We stayed in...

I've stayed at this resort four times. Each time for about 7 days. Friendly and helpful staff. Good food. They have various options for picky people. Beautiful, quiet location. I felt very safe going to a different country for the first time.

Burrell Boom is a quiet, safe place outside of Belize City. The people are great and the hotel accommodations are very nice. Good Wi-Fi, air conditioning, food, pool, etc. Love the location on the Belize River too.

Loved the location in the town of Burrell Boom. It was 15 minutes from the airport. The greatest thing was the staff. They do everything to make your stay perfect. The food was excellent! Rooms were very nice with excellent views of the beautiful river.

We stayed in June for 1 night before flying out of Belize at the Black Orchid. It is only about 15 to 20 minutes from the airport and a great way to avoid Belize City. We were very pleasantly surprised, especially after reading a couple of negative reviews. The property is clearly not new, but is well kept with large...
