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...

In the past we have stayed at the Great House in Belize City, chose the Black Orchid so we could see some of the countryside, and be close to the airport for a one night stay. Very friendly staff, nice rooms, a good pool and grounds. We walked into the village of Burell Boom and visited the Baboon Sanctuary, a...

When our US airlines failed us and we missed our connection in Belize City, the staff at Black Orchid Resort welcomed us and made our stay very pleasant. We were given a room that was large, immaculate and quite comfortable. They served us a delicious rum punch which soothed our frustration and melted away our anger. All 3 meals (B,...

We have visited Belize in the past. This time we wanted to stay on the mainland for a couple of days before going to Ambergris Caye. We could not have a chosen a more perfect spot. The resort had a driver ready to pick us up at the airport on our arrival in Belize City. We arrived at the resort...

We had spent a couple weeks in Placencia and wanted a place close to the airport for our departure home. Black Orchid was perfect. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Nice location and easy to find. We will most likely stay here again when we visit Belize.

We stayed at Black Orchid on the last night of our trip to Belize. The room was large, comfortable, and Air Conditioned which was a treat. It was more expensive than most of the other places we saw, but chose it because of its proximity to the airport as well as free rides to and from. When we got to...

We loved how quiet it was compared to the traffic in Belize City. Thank you for the unexpected upgrade to a River View room. We enjoyed talking with the bartender in the nice screened in bar before our wonderful dinner. In the morning we got to see the Howler Monkeys in the trees across the river. We would love to...

Stayed here the night before our flight home. Staff were quite nice and helpful. Beds very hard, pool small, rooms and food basic. It was fine, and a nice location in the jungle area, but wouldn't want to stay more than a night.

We stayed at the Black Orchid one day as our group assembled for a tour of Belize. It is quite close to the airport, sits on the bank of the historic Belize River, and is clean with quite large rooms arranged in several two story units with two accommodations on the first floor, two accommodations on the upper floor. Every...

Lovely everything: People, food, service, accommodations, grounds all to meet your expectations. Location is near the City but in the country. Lots of rooms to choose from with nice views of the river! We would definitely return.
