I always stay in Belize city when I arrive late from the airport and can't catch a local flight south. I had seen a resort north of the airport in Burrell boom.

Advantages: 15min from the airport. Nice grounds. Disadvantages: Motel 6 style rooms at a premium price of $180 US per night. The Wi-Fi did not work well in the rooms only in the lobby. The cable TV did not work. High price for basic meals like chicken and pork starting at $40 Belize.

Starting off and ending your visit to Belize at the Black Orchid is the smart way to have a delightful time. The serenity of the Black Orchid was just what the "Doctor" ordered. Thanks to Beverly, the Manager, and Dane and Kimberley, in the restaurant, for making our stay a memorable and pleasant one.

We just returned from our 6th consecutive visit to Black Orchid. Perfect home base for our annual Belize trips. There is always something new, constantly upgrading and refreshing. Good clean rooms, good AC, very accommodating staff and management. We've already booked for next year.

Just 10 km from Belize City, the quaint, quite resort offers all the amenities you could want: quiet, comfortable rooms, swimming pool, excellent restaurant and bar, spa, canoeing and kayaking on the Belize tour, and access to tours through the front desk. Service is low-key, casual and personable. Every effort is made to make your stay as enjoyable as possible....
