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.

We spent one night here before an early morning flight and we are so glad we did. The howler monkeys were in the trees having a good time when we arrived- a fun sight to see and hear. We didn't go swimming, but the pool was a nice option. The room was spacious and the bed was so comfortable. We...

We had a great time in a lovely second floor room that looked out on the river. The food and service was excellent. I wished we had more time to take the canoe out in the river. I would stay there again.

We stayed for three nights and were lucky enough to be here for the countries great canoe race, which passed by the hotel. We were treated great by all of the staff and enjoyed the food at the restaurant. Bird watching is...

I was actually surprised to find such a nice hotel in Burrell Boom. Nice clean rooms, hot showers, nice pool, bar and restaurant. It's right on the Belize River and just off the highway so extremely conveniently located. You can hit a number of local attractions from this place as well as canoe the river from the back door. I...

I just returned from Belize with a school group (high school). I can't say enough good things about the staff and the resort. The staff went out of their way to make the stay comfortable and even made breakfast for our group at 5:30am before we left for the airport. The rooms are clean and have added thoughtful features such...

I was very satisfied with my stay at Black Orchid. I was vacationing in Belize for my 40th birthday and was warmly welcomed by all of staff and even found a "happy birthday" message spelled out on my bed in flower petals upon my arrival and for my actual birthday. The resort itself is lovely and has a nice laidback,...
