Many good things to say about Black Orchid, but one of the strongest aspects, for nature lovers especially, is the ability to view monkeys in their natural habitat. We saw a few on the first day and a whole family with 2 babies, right on the property! The river is nice and they have canoes and kayaks for your enjoyment....

This hotel was pretty and comfortable. The pool is nice and the food we had was all really good. The grounds were well cared for and beautiful. The staff was quick to tend to any problems we found. The air-conditioner in our room wasn't working properly, but it got fixed.

We have stayed at this property three times. Our stays were more about the location than the resort, however, the management continues to make improvements every year. If you go ask for a room in Building T (better river views, small pool on the roof). Food and drinks are good, not to die for, but good considering your location. They...

Rooms were clean and nice and the staff were very friendly and helpful. We stayed here twice on our way in and out of Belize. The grounds are beautiful and we did some kayaking...

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...
