Our flights were delayed by weather so we needed to find a place to stay near the airport for one night before catching our connecting flight. Black Orchid offered a free shuttle to and from the airport, tasty restaurant, beautiful facility, continental breakfast and spacious accommodations. We arrived after dark, so it was a treat to wake up the next...

Was able to book last minute. Don't believe the internet about vacancy. Call directly. Rooms are nice and clean. Nice pool. Restaurant on resort is very good and had many very good meals there. The front desk is great in helping plan excursions and this helped us in planning our week. You can arrive with no idea or plan and...

This is a very nice property, quite modern and clean. The staff is very friendly and do their best to be helpful. However sometimes they don't seem to have current information on the tours they arrange. The place is a bit isolated (like most resorts) but the drivers are very cheery and competent to take you wherever you want to...

We only used the restaurant but I can recommend the " Belize Lunch" which was substantial and really tasty whilst not being too spicy. The service was good and the prices not bad at all. The resort seemed to be very nice ,on a river bank with modern accommodation and a lovely pool.

Husband and I have an early flight to catch early tomorrow morning so we came back from San Pedro a day early in order to be close to the airport. After scanning through all the hotel choices at Belize we expand the search and found Black Orchid Resort. We called the hotel and had arranged transportation from the port to...

Thank you so much for your review, we totally appreciate it and take your remarks seriously. No we can't please everyone be we can certainly do a better job controlling the music. I think if you take a closer look you will find that the loud music is a very recent problem, coming from a new bartender. We have already...

We chose to spend our last night in Belize at the Black Orchid Resort, mainly because it is located close to the airport and offers a free shuttle to the airport. Although it doesn't look like much from the parking area, the back side of the resort is beautiful. The bar and pool overlook the Belize River and it's very...

Summary: This resort seemed to be catering to the party crowd with free rum punch and a blasting latin beat- but we were able to enjoy the peace of the environment after asking twice to turn the music down and changing rooms. The receptionist at the Black Orchid took us to a beautiful room (A1) which was closest to the...

Thank you for taking the time to write a review, it is helpful to us and our potential guests.

Very nice hotel in a beautiful natural setting only 15-20 minutes from the international airport. Professional, attentive staff, pool, and restaurant/bar; all top notch.
