We stayed 7 years ago when it just opened and loved it then, but now it has the finishing touches. The Crimson Orchid Inn is relaxing, beautifully decorated and just comfortable. Stephen and Laurene are good people and gracious hosts. Breakfast was included and delicious. We will stay again when in the area.

A bit of a trek getting here -- bumpy dirt roads, two hand-cranked ferries -- but once you arrive it's a little bit of paradise. The inn is beautiful, rooms comfy, breakfast delicious, hosts friendly, informative and welcoming, fantastic views from the rooftop. The beach is a two-minute walk away, as is a pub/restaurant with pretty good food. I'd recommend...

Best time ever. The hosts are super. I got the royal tour of what's going on in the area. Breakfasts were really good. My room was terrific. Leaving was torture. The weather was the best. It only rained at night.

Belize is a developing country. There are very few paved roads. So after and adventurous drive from Belize City, imagine our joy at finding the Crimson Orchid and the wonderful, special, kind, thoughtful, caring hosts, Steve and Laurene. The property is just beautiful and well thought out, and located in an unspoiled area in the Corozal District in northern Belize....

I had toured the Crimson Orchid B&B soon after it opened about four or five years ago and had revisited once since then, but I hadn't stayed there until another trip to Belize in August 2016. We arrived later than expected due to the temporary closure of the Laguna Seca ferry (we had to backtrack and drive in another way)....

Our family of 6 had a fabulous stay at the Crimson Orchid Inn. The rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable. The views were gorgeous, and the atmosphere was spectacular.

Laurene and Stephen are the most amazing hosts on earth. Crimson Orchid Inn is new, clean, comfortable and inviting. I felt at home my entire stay. Located right on the edge of the jungle I would spend my mornings with coffee listening to unbelievable sounds of birds from the roof-top patio -- with stunning views over the jungle and beach....
