Our extended family of ten recently stayed at the Black Orchid for 4 nights while we visited the mainland. The place was VERY clean and comfortable and the staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. We did several tours/trips that they organized and all were well executed with knowledgeable, friendly guides. The only criticism we had was the service in the...

After deciding on the activities we wanted to do while in Belize, I did a few internet searches for places to stay. We decided we wanted to be more central and closer to the water than in the southwest area of Belize. The Black Orchid Resort come up several times. Most of the reviews were positive so we booked our...

A really beautiful hotel in a stunning setting. The landscaping and grounds of the hotel are beautiful and the pool area very well kept. The location is has a real jungle feel and has an isolated feel but this is exactly what you come for. Stunning location on the river and the hotel has a range of kayaks to grab...

Beautifully landscaped, the resort is on the river. The staff were very attentive and accommodating. We traveled with two kids (9&7). They loved the pool. We were made to feel at home. Will definitely stay there again when we come back to Belize.

Great place on the river, close to the airport. The grounds are landscaped with beautiful local flowers and orchids. The rooms are very clean and ours had a balconey overlooking the river. We took out the free canoes and kayaks and took a nice relaxing ride up the river. The restaurant was one of the best we encountered on our...

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...

My wife and I have been traveling for many years. I have used Trip Advisor to research my travel plans but have never taken the time to write any reviews.

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....

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...
